Prana Natural Mass is the very first vegan and gluten free mass gainer. That's right, you can finally build muscle mass with a plant-based weight gainer.
Prana ON Mass Gainer delivers over 30g protein per serve from a trio of plant-based protein sources: Raw, Golden Pea Protein Isolate and Sprouted and Fermented Brown Rice Protein. These quality protein sources ensures your vegan protein is providing a complete protein source delivering all the essential amino acids. Prana Natural Mass has also been fortified with L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine to produce an environment that supports protein synthesis and therefore muscle growth.
Building quality muscle mass not only relies on protein but also on having a good fuel source to preserve your hard earned muscle during workouts. Prana Natural Mass also provides over 30g per serve of complex carbohydrates from Tapioca Starch. Differing from many carbohydrate sources, Tapioca Starch is extremely low in sugar to prevent rapid surges in blood sugar and is gluten free.
Prana Natural Mass also utilises healthy fats to fuel muscles and add quality calories to your natural mass gainer. Coconut Oil provides a source of medium chain triglycerides (MCT's) that provides a fast-acting fuel source for your muscles whilst the tapioca starch is a little slower ensuring a sustained energy to fuel your muscles. Prana Natural Mass also delivers 1.5g of creatine monohydrate which increases energy, strength and power output so you can workout more efficiently.
Prana Natural Mass can help you stay in a positive calorie balance which is essential if you are trying to gain mass and will also prevent you from breaking down your hard-earned muscle i.e having a muscle sparing effect. The synergistic ratio of protein, carbs and fats creates the perfect environment for muscle hypertrophy.
How to Use Prana Natural Mass
Mix 100g with 400-500ml of cold water a shake or blend. Also can be mixed in almond, rice or soy milk for a creamier shaker. Best used post-workout and between meals.
PROS: Prana On Natural Mass finds itself in the unique position of providing a natural, vegan, gluten free mass gainer so that in itself is a massive pro. It's not only a niche product but an effective niche product. Prana Natural Mass offers a balanced ratio of protein to carbohdyrates and contains digestive enzymes to ensure efficient absorption and utilisation of muscle-building nutrients.
CONS: Whilst Prana Natural Mass is an awesome natural mass gainer you are limited to their smaller sized products, in saying this though, it is probably one of the only natural, gluten free and alkaline mass gainers out so this may be a trade off.
VERDICT: We think Prana ON Mass Gainer is a great product and fills a gap in the market. It mixes well and tastes great with a slightly flavour from the tapioca starch. We give this product a 4.5/5.
