The Ingredient Breakdown

  • Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC): VPA® WPC delivers your body a faster supply of protein and amino acids to feed your muscle tissue. With a protein percentage of approximately 80% and very low fat and carbohydrate levels (only 0.7g and 1.5g respectively), VPA® WPC is extracted using ultra-filtration processes ensuring the protein is left in its most natural form.
  • Maltodextrin: Maltodextrin is a complex carbohydrate made from corn, rice or potato. Not only does this highly absorbed carbohydrate offer the necessary calorie density required for muscle growth, it also encourages an anabolic effect in the body after training through the release of insulin.
  • Dextrose Monohydrate: Dextrose Monohydrate is a highly absorbed single chain carbohydrate derived from corn, which supports maltodextrin in the muscle growth process by also offering excess calories and promoting a faster insulin production through its gastric emptying ability. Both of these carbohydrates work together to create an extremely anabolic setting in your body.
  • Creatine Monohydrate: Creatine has been recognised as one of the most effective supplements for strength and muscle gains for decades. Creatine is able to increase strength through its proven ability to replenish the short burst energy system (ATP, allowing for more reps and sets.


After Exercise

Since VPA® Muscle Gainer used the highest quality whey protein, in combination with carbohydrates and creatine monohydrate, it is the ideal post-workout shake for maximum repair and growth.

Weight Management

By using an ideal ratio of protein and carbohydrates, Muscle Gainer supplies your body with the calories and macro-nutrients required for fast recovery after intense exercise, plus the nutrients for continual growth and repair throughout your day.

Snack Replacement

If you are wanting to put on weight quickly or find it hard to put on weight, using VPA® Mass Gainer as a snack between meals is a great way to increase your daily calories.

Night Time

Since we do most of our repair and growing at night-time, it is a good idea to use VPA® Muscle Gainer in the evening. It keeps the essential nutrients in your bloodstream to be used from growth while you are sleeping.

Muscle Gainer is Ideal for muscle gain

Muscle gain is a process of putting your muscle under stress/resistance to cause micro-tears in the muscle tissue, then supplying your body the nutrients to repair these tissue tears. Over time your muscle begins to adapt to this process and begins growing larger to cope with the increasing stress and resistance. Using VPA® muscle gainer will not only supply your body with the protein and carbohydrates to maximise this repair process, but it also supplies your body with creatine, allowing for stronger lifts, maximising the muscle tears and workout performance.

What is mass gainer protein powder?

VPA® Muscle Gainer is a mass gainer supplement, which you may have also heard referred to as a weight gainer or bulking powder. Gainers are different to pure protein supplements like whey protein isolate (WPI), whey protein concentration (WPC) in that they combine protein with carbohydrate and fat to provide a high calorie and high protein supplement.

Mass gainers are used by those who find it hard to put on weight and muscle due to not being able to eat enough calories in excess of their daily energy needs. A calorie surplus is needed to build muscle, and a mass gainer protein powder like our Muscle Gainer can help you achieve that.

How does mass gainer work?

Mass gainer works to build muscle by delivering a high-quality protein that can be used to repair and build muscle, along with enough energy to fuel the muscle building process. It is superior to WPI or WPC if you are someone who trains hard, but who burns so much energy that you find it difficult to eat enough food to create your own calorie surplus. In addition, the added creatine helps you train harder each session, which will maximise muscle stimulus and encourage growth.

What are the ingredients of mass gainer?

Mass gainers are not pure protein powders. They are usually a mix of whey protein isolate, or whey protein concentrate, simple carbohydrates, and sometimes fats.

One serve of VPA®Muscle Gainer contains 31.9g of high quality protein, 40.5g of carbohydrate, and 2.3g of fat and a total of 239 calories per serve.

The ingredients of VPA® Muscle Gainer are:

Whey protein concentrate (WPC) – WPC is a high-quality pure whey protein that provides the essential amino acids needed to build and repair muscle maximizing muscle growth.

Dextrose Monohydrate – A rapidly absorbed carbohydrate that helps spike insulin to initiate and maximise muscle growth. The energy provided frees up protein to be used for muscle building, sparing it from being used as an energy source as a result of eating too little.

Maltodextrin – A long-chain carbohydrate that does not have a sweet flavour compared to other simple carbohydrates. It is still quickly digested and absorbed, and like dextrose, it frees up protein to be used for muscle building and not as an emergency energy source as a result of eating too little.

Creatine monohydrate – As one of the most researched and supported sports supplements on the planet, creatine boosts your performance in training, and in doing so it allows you to lift more weight and complete more reps which increase the rate at which you gain muscle.

Mass gainer versus WPI or WPC

What is the difference between mass gainer and protein powder? A mass gainer like VPA® Muscle Gainer is not a pure protein powder, like either WPC or WPI. High-quality WPI and WPC like our Premium Whey or Whey Isolate deliver the highest protein content possible.

They are pure protein powder except for the tiny amounts of flavour, non-caloric sweetener, and colour needed to make it taste delicious! On the other hand, mass gainers are not pure protein powders. Instead blend protein with carbohydrate, and sometimes fat, to not only provide a full serve of muscle-building protein but a large amount of energy to help the muscle-building process.

Should I take mass gainer or protein powder?

Mass gainers are not for everyone. If you are trying to lose fat mass, then muscle gainer is not for you. Try our WPI or WPC instead. Muscle gainers are ideal for those that train hard but find it hard to put on any weight at all, let alone muscle mass. These types of people are sometimes referred to as “hard gainers”.

What is the best mass gainer protein powder?

Mass gainers can often be poor quality, so always read the nutrition panel. One of the tricks that some companies use when marketing their muscle gainer is to promote the overall nutritional value and overlook the serving size. The best mass gainers should deliver a complete serve of protein in a reasonable serving size. Whey protein isolate or whey protein concentrate should be the first ingredient on the ingredients list as protein is the most important aspect of muscle building. This is what makes VPA® Muscle Gainer the best mass gainer protein powder.

What does mass gainer taste like?

The added carbohydrate content of mass gainer makes it more ‘watery’ to taste than pure protein powders, but it mixes well in either water or milk. VPA® Muscle Gainer comes in 4 delicious flavours: chocolate, vanilla, banana, iced coffee and salted caramel.

How much is a serve of mass gainer?

One serve of VPA® Muscle Gainer is a lot bigger than WPC or WPI as this is a blended protein product. One serve of Muscle Gainer is 80g or three scoops. One bag of muscle gainer has 12 serves. The carbohydrate powders in our mass gainer have a tendency to settle over time, so for accuracy, we recommend you weigh each serve of Muscle Gainer using a set of scales to make sure you are not using too much or too little.

Can I change the dose of mass gainer?

You sure can! If you need even more calories than what one serve of our Muscle Gainer provides, feel free to increase the amount of protein you use to make your shake.

What should I mix mass gainer with?

Mass gainer can be mixed with either water or milk. People who are hunting energy, will often mix it with full fat milk to boost their energy intake even further. Please be aware that the nutrition information of our Muscle Gainer does not take into account the nutrition content of the product you mix it with, so don’t forget to take that into account if you are counting macros and/or calories.

When should I take mass gainer?

You can take mass gainer before training, after training, or at any other time if you are needing to take in quick additional calories.

Taken before training the simple carbohydrates in mass gainers help fuel training and can help decrease the feeling of fatigue. This effect will be more pronounced if you have not eaten enough in the hours before training.

Taken after training, a mass gainer will rapidly start the muscle rebuilding process, and replenish glycogen energy stores within your muscle. Ingesting carbohydrate along with protein after you train accelerates the muscle repair and building process as the insulin spike helps shuttle amino acids into your muscles.

Taken as a snack or meal, mass gainers are a rapidly ingested and absorbed source of muscle building calories that can help you reach the daily calorie surplus required to build muscle mass.

Mass gainer protein powder side effects

The use of mass gainers in accordance with the directions provided will not cause any side effects.

Can I use mass gainer when pregnant or breastfeeding?

Please ask a medical professional such as a GP or dietitian before using protein powder when pregnant or breastfeeding. There is nothing inherently unsafe in VPA® protein powder for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
