Optimum Pro Complex Gainer Review By Dave
Be sure to check out the variety of gainer products available:
Optimum Pro Complex Gainer
60 Grams Of Protein, Complex Carbs, Digestive Ezymes And More!
That's an abundance of protein!
Optimum Nutrition is proud to bring you Pro Complex Gainer - the worlds premier "lean gainer" supplement.
The common problem with many weight gainers is that they contain an abundance of calories. Often this great abundance of calories is derived from extremely high amount of carbohydrates (often a mixture between simple and complex carbohydrates that varies between different weight-gainers). Optimum Pro Complex Gainer contains a more moderate amount of carbohydrates (at least in comparison to other weight-gainers), 85 grams per serving.
Unlike typical weight gain formulas, ON Pro Complex Gainer derives a much higher percentage of its calories from protein. And, while some "ultra-hardgainers" require 1000, 1200, or even 1500 calorie/serving weight gain products, many athletes can gain quality mass with considerably less.
Optimum Pro Complex Gainer contains a high amount of protein (in comparison to other weight-gainers), about 10-20 grams more than the competition. I agree that it is hardly necessary to contain 1500 calories in one sitting, purely from a shake. If you desire more calories, contain this shake with a meal or add other ingredients to the shake (fruit, oatmeal, peanut butter, etc.).
So, in addition to calories, ON Pro Complex Gainer provides a blend of 6 premium protein sources, complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, lipids, digestive enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
Optimum Pro Complex Gainer is just as the name implies, a complex of an array of ingredients. Like any other weight-gainer, I would suggest consuming this beverage early in the day (with or between breakfast and/or lunch) and/or pre or post-workout.
I was impressed with Optimum Pro Complex Gainer's claim. I felt their claim was truthful for the most part (I would call it a lean gainer supplement for everyone) and on point. Therefore, for the claim, I award Optimum Pro Complex Gainer a 9/10.
I sampled the Strawberry Cream flavour of Optimum Pro Complex Gainer. The taste coincided with the name. In other words, Optimum Pro Complex Gainer exhibited a somewhat sweet strawberry cream flavour. A supplement which actually tastes like what it's called, is rarer than you might think within the supplement industry. Therefore, I award Optimum Pro Complex Gainer an 8/10 for taste.
I found that Optimum Pro Complex Gainer mixed relatively well (in comparison to other weight-gainers). Also, I found that Optimum Pro Complex Gainer had a pleasantly smooth texture. Therefore, for solubility/texture, I award Optimum Pro Complex Gainer a 8/10.
Optimum Pro Complex Gainer derives its calories from proteins, carbohydrates, fats and a vitamin and mineral complex (and a variety of each in all categories). Also, Optimum Pro Complex Gainer contains a quality 650 calories per serving. Therefore, you should expect a noticeable increase in energy. I'm impressed with the makeup of Optimum Pro Complex Gainer. Therefore, for effectiveness, I award Optimum Pro Complex Gainer an 8/10 (in comparison to other weight-gainers).
There is one aspect which I haven't discussed yet, price. Although Optimum Pro Complex Gainer is a quality weight-gainer, I feel that it's overpriced. I felt that the claim was truthful and on point, for the most part. Also, I was impressed with the taste and solubility/texture. Furthermore, I feel that Optimum Pro Complex Gainer is an effective weight-gainer. Therefore, for an overall review, I award Optimum Pro Complex Gainer an 8/10.
