Optimum Serious Mass
50 Grams Of Protein With Glutamine And Creatine Plus 1,250 Calories!
That's a lot of protein and calories. However, it is relatively low in creatine (only 1 gram). The usual maintenance dose for creatine is 5 grams daily. Also, it's low in glutamine and glutamine peptides (only 500 mg of each). Additionally, there is a significant dose of PABA (5 grams). This supplement has the biggest scoop I've ever seen for a supplement.
Serious Mass: the ultimate in weight gain formulas. Serious Mass supplies you with the tools you need to pack on the pounds and develop the physique you've always wanted.
Unless you have a physique where you don't want to pack on the pounds. If this is the case, I would recommend that you cease looking into weight-gainers.
Each serving of Serious Mass contains 1250 serious calories derived primarily from protein sparing complex carbohydrates and a high quality protein blend consisting of Whey Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, and Egg albumen.
Most of the carbohydrates in Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass are in the form of maltodextrin. It's always nice to see a blend of proteins, as opposed to only 1 or 2 sources of protein.
Creatine Monohydrate, Glutamine, Choline and Inositol have been added to optimize each strength training workout while a complete vitamin and mineral profile insures your body gets the balanced nutrition it needs.
As noted above, Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass contains low amount of Creatine and Glutamine. However, there is a significant vitamin and mineral profile included in Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass.
I felt that claim was pretty much on point. Therefore, for the claim, I award Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass a 9/10.
I sampled the Chocolate flavour of Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass. I found that it was a heavy milk chocolate taste. I felt that the taste was satisfactory but not particularly good. Therefore, for taste, I award the Chocolate flavour of Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass a 6/10.
I found that the solubility of Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass was less than satisfactory. Also, I found that Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass had a thick texture that I didn't mind. Therefore, for solubility/texture, I award Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass a 6/10.
Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass contains a load of protein (50 grams) from 3 sources, which is fairly impressive. Also, it contains a moderate amount of fat (4.5 grams) mostly from medium chain triglycerides. Furthermore, Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass contains a ton of carbohydrates (mostly derived from maltodextrin—a sweet polysaccharide that is a relatively cheap alternative). With the 1250 calories that Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass contains, you can expect a noticeable increase in energy from a variety of sources. However, I would like to see more variety in proteins and a more diverse blend of carbohydrates especially. Therefore, for effectiveness, I award Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass a 6.5/10.
Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass is very competitively priced. I was very pleased with their claim. The taste of Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass was satisfactory. The solubility was poor but the texture of it was fine. The effectiveness of Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass wasn't particularly impressive. Therefore, for an overall review, I award Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass Chocolate flavour a 7/10.
