Weight gainer is a dietary supplements that contain high level of carbohydrates, proteins Weight gainer is a dietary supplements that contain high level of carbohydrates proteins(Multi Source & Type) and moderate amount of fats. As the name suggests this supplement is primarily used for gaining weight via Huge Calorie intake provided by CarbohydratesWeight gainers are complex in formulation since it contains large number of ingredients and to be consumed in large serving size compared to protein powders to get the desired result.

Its Carbohydrates in any weight gainers that ensure you the huge Calorie intake to gain weight.Weight gainers often contain a range of simple to complex carbohydrates The best weight gainers majorly has Complex Carbohydrates i.e., Maltodextrins with Low DE and small amount of simple carbs.Manufactures mainly uses Corn/Rice/ Potato as Complex Carbs sourceSimples carbs will ensure immediate energy release and post work out recovery. While Complex p gy p y pcarbs will ensure sustained energy release and calorie bumping up in day time.
DE describes the degree to which “Hydrolysis” ( Enzymatic Break Down)happens to Corn/Rice/Potato starch and converts it into Dextrose (Simple Carbohydrate or Glucose).The more the conversion ,the high DE and the less the conversion , the low DE. , g ,Glycemic Index measures the rate in which Carbohydrate enter the blood stream. The Glycemic Index measures the rate in which Carbohydrate enter the blood stream TheCarbohydrates with higher the Glycemic Index (GI) are absorbed very fast.Carbohydrates enter into blood stream as glucose and have to be either burnt as fuel energy, stored in muscle cell as glycogen or stored in fat cells as Triglycerides. When Glucose rise in stored in muscle cell as glycogen or stored in fat cells as Triglycerides When Glucose rise inblood stream, body stimulates carrier hormone Insulin and this hormone carries and decides to deposit Glucose either to Muscle Cells or to Fat cells.
•Best weight gainer has Low DE Maltodextrins ( Low GI), the complex carbohydrates f f g y•Low DE Maltodextrins is not fat forming and it releases into the blood stream more slowly than simple sugars like Glucose and Sucrose. •Low DE Maltodextrins ensure a superior, sustained source of energy.
Weight gainers often has blend of Proteins .The best weight gainers have combinations of Whey Protein Concentrates, Whey Isolates, Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides, Egg Protein, Whole Milk Protein, Casein and Soy I l H d l d Wh P id E P i Wh l Milk P i C i dSProtein.These combinations ensure a full array of Fast, Medium and Slow Release proteins. Fast proteins will help in post work out. Medium & Slow proteins ensure a constant release of i ill h l i k M di & Sl i l fAmino Acids during day time (specially in hours where you are not eating) to keep your muscles fuelled and in anabolic state (Growth).
EctomorphsNormally a 5 part Carb to 1 part Protein (5:1) or 3:1 is good for them because they need more calorie to gain weight.Endomorphs They more likely to put on Fat so they need more protein, for them a 1:1 ratio is goodMesomorphsA ratio in between above is good for them
Not all the Fats are bad for human bodyNot only Fats are packed with ideal calories for weight gain but also some y p f g gfats are essential for healthy body functions.A best weight gainer is low in Saturated Fats and high in Unsaturated Fats. Unsaturated Fats like Omega 3s or 6s can help in getting lean mass by U t t d F t lik O 3 6 h l i tti l breducing body Fat and also ensures overall health.
Digestive Enzymes in weight gainer is an add on and it will help in improving the digestibility of proteins and carbs. This is more important since weight gainers are consumed in large serving sizes. gCreatine and Glutamine helps in Muscle building, Immunity ,Recovery etcMost of the weight gainers available in market contains Creatine & Glutamine and it will f g gagain gives customer convenience and cost effectiveness (All in One Effect)
Taste matters a lot in weight gainers since your serving sizes are large compared to protein powders and you are consuming it 2 ‐3 times daily.Try smaller packs or samples first to get the feel & taste before going for Bigger Pack Size. Its will save your money
Once the all above criteria of a good weight gainer matches, look for the pricing.Different brands have different serving sizes, means some brands may have huge Different brands have different serving sizes means some brands may have hugecalories, but recommended serving sizes may be huge.Calculate the cost per calorie of a product, always select a weight gainer with good ingredients and a least cost per calorie
