Hello everyone. I am submitting my review for a fairly new entry into the weight gainer
Elite Mass. This product has been out for almost a year if I'm not mistaken. There have not been a lot of reviews on this product on this site or others. So hopefully this will help any and all who may be considering it. I had never heard of this product until a rep from another supplement company suggested it to me. I found that interesting since they are a competitor, but he was honest and forthright and said that Dymatize
's quality standards are of the highest in the industry. Since his company doesn't have an entry in the Weight Gainer
category, he suggested this which I thought was very commendable since he could have just tried to sell me more of his company's product.
PROFILE: The Supplement Facts of this product were impressive to me at first glance. It is available in two sizes, 6 lbs and 10 lbs. The serving size is 4 scoops and below are some of the main stats...
Fat Calo: 60
Sat Fat: 1g
Trans Fat: 0g
Diet Fiber: 2g
TASTE/MIXABILITY: The mixability of this product started out somewhat difficult. I usually use a Blender Bottle and it mixes everything with ease. This wasn't the case to start. But after a few days what I did was put two scoops in with half the water and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds, then put the remaining two scoops in with more water for a total of 16oz. This made it much easier and it mixed very well after that. The taste was very pleasant to me as it was not too sweet and not bland either. I particularly liked this because I do not want a product that is too sweet as that probably means there is way too much sugar in it. The flavors I have had are Strawberries & Cream and Cookies & Cream. Both were very good and if I had to choose, I would go with Cookies & Cream personally.
EFFECTIVENESS/RESULTS: I started out taking this once a day and eventually upped it to two. I preferred to take this in the AM and before bed. The results were great because I was able to put on a solid amount of muscle without adding fat. I never felt bloated or stuffed after taking this and was never still hungry at the same time. Upon taking it at night, I would wake up in the AM feeling good and looking lean. It seemed to digest very well which I thought was great considering many protein blends don't. It has the digestive
enzyme Zytrix in it which is said to aid tremendously in helping the digestion
of products such as this. It also has Creatine Mono and Kre-Alkalyn
, which I honestly could go without in a weight gainer
. But I believe the amount of each is minimal in this product. The amino acid
profile is very impressive as well.
CONCLUSION: I feel this is another solid product from a great company. Although this was the first product I tried from Dymatize
, it is not the last I have added a few of their proteins to my supplement cupboard. I will be adding this again in the very near future. I have read other reviews of one of the MHP weight gainer
products and will probably try that next. However, with this costing $48 for the 10 pound size, it is a great value in my opinion.
