SAN Nutrition was established in 1996 and two decades on, they remain an authority in quality, value for money supplements. Their Mass Effect Revolution is a mass gainer formula that is dominated by eight sources of proteins, with quick-digesting carbohydrates and good fats to help you gain mass. Clocking in 1105 calories, the Mass Effect is purported by SAN Nutrition to be one of the most effective mass gainers.
Here's all you need to know if you're in the market for a new mass gainer.
WHAT'S IN IT
The key ingredients in Mass Effect Revolution are a MyoCarb Matrix, Octapure 8 Protein Fusion, and Creatine Mass Fusion.
MyoCarb Matrix is a mix of fast-digesting carbs. It includes glucose polymers, flaxseed powder and sprouted rice bran powder. These are all immediate sources of energy that go directly to your muscles, allowing for your body to quickly receive the nutrients it needs, especially if you're consuming the mass gainer as a post-workout. There's 215g of carbohydrates per serving!
Octapure 8 Protein Fusion includes eight different sources of protein, making it a stand out mass gainer from others in the market that typically have two. The proteins are a diverse mix. You get soy protein, brown rice protein, hydrolysed whey isolate, milk protein isolate, micellar casein, calcium casein, whey concentrate and whey protein isolate. It practically ticks all the boxes for proteins you need throughout the day, and the inclusion of two casein compounds allows for anabolic muscle growth as well as the prevention of muscle breakdown. You get a hefty 50g of protein per serving.
Creatine Mass Fusion is what makes Mass Effect Revolution diverse to consume pre- and post-workout. With 5g of creatine monohydrate, you'll see a gradual improvement in strength and muscle growth over time.
FLAVOURS AND TASTE
You get three flavours to choose from — Milk Chocolate Delight, Strawberry Cream and Vanilla Bean. It's not overtly sweet, nor does it have a cloyingly artificial taste. It's eight scoops per serving, though it is advisable to either mix half a serving each time as the product is extremely thick. It is best to use a blender with this, along with water and ice if you choose to take it cold.
HOW YOU SHOULD TAKE IT
Timing of the day isn't imperative when it comes to mass gainers, but with the diversity of proteins and inclusion of creatine monohydrate, you can choose to either take half a serving of this pre-workout, and another half post-workout. You can also opt to take it as a mid-day snack to boost your daily calorie intake.
$45 for 10 servings and $85 for 20 servings is a steal. You get quality ingredients with Mass Effect Revolution that go far beyond the typical mass gainer like 8 protein sources and creatine, so it's extremely value for money.
WHO SHOULD TAKE IT
Anyone looking to gain mass on a budget should opt for SAN Nutrition Mass Effect Revolution. You're not making any sacrifices on the quality of the product, and you're getting an amazing nutritional profile that will really boost the number on the scale in a short amount of time. You'll also see significant improvements to your strength — an added plus.
