What is a Vegan Mass Gainer Shake?
In performance nutrition, it is common knowledge that a consistent energy surplus is needed to gain muscle and weight, which means consuming more calories than we burn. This can be a challenge on a plant-based/vegan diet, especially for "hard gainers".
Vegan Mass Gainer is the ultimate supplement for weight gain, with 39 grams of protein and 525 calories per 150-gram serving. Ideal for muscle recovery after training and between meals for an extra calorie boost - combine with serious efforts in the weight room to promote weight gain.
Research shows that consuming an extra 3,500 kcal a week will increase body weight by 1 pound. To achieve this, we need to consume 500 kcal each day of the week for our "maintenance" - the amount of calories needed to not gain or lose weight. At 525 kcal per serving, Vegan Mass Gainer contains the right amount of energy to tip the scales in the right direction.
What's in Vegan Mass Gainer?
The most important factor when choosing a weight gainer is the ingredients. Vegan mass gainer contains a tri-protein blend made from the purest and most soluble soy isolate, pea isolate and brown rice concentrate, making each shake perfectly smooth. By using different protein sources, the full amino acid profile is delivered with each serving - essential for muscle growth.
The body's primary source of energy is carbohydrate, stored in the muscle as glycogen. Pushing limits on the field or in the gym depends on the amount of glycogen stored and replenished after training. For this reason, Vegan Gainer contains 79 g of carbohydrates per serving, the highest in products of its kind. The use of high-quality pure fine oats and fast-digesting maltodextrin, results in an ultra-smooth and delicious-tasting, filling machine.
Actually, the term Weight Gainer is not the right name or category for the Vegan Mass Gainer either. In fact, TPW has gone that extra mile and added micronutrients with dense ingredients to keep you fit and rejuvenated for the next workout session. Besides oats, which are rich in zinc, iron, folic acid vitamin E and fibre for digestion, flaxseed has been added to increase the intake of alpha-linolenic acid; essential dietary fats that help maintain cholesterol in the blood.
Combining the Vegan Mass Gainer with heavy training sessions will support muscle mass growth and full recovery of muscle function. Available in the six excellent flavours and balanced with the perfect amount of sweetness has created the best-tasting weight gainer vegan on the market.
How many and when?
Depending on your individual daily needs, vegan weight gainer can be consumed up to three times a day, ideally after exercise and between meals. Each serving is the equivalent of a typical home-cooked meal. Say 2500 kcal/day is needed to gain weight, one serving would contribute 20% of the total daily goal! Don't forget the 39 g of protein, good for 27% of your needs. (Example based on an active 70kg man).
Added to your supplement regime after exercise will boost your recovery time. First, the tri-protein matrix will contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. Second, the healthy source of carbohydrates will replenish depleted glycogen stores, allowing maximum muscle function and contraction in the next round of training.
