THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WEIGHT-GAIN

For many aspiring to be bigger, highly-active metabolisms, weaker appetites, and on-the-run lifestyles make consuming sufficient calories through whole foods alone a real challenge. With Serious Mass, you’ve got nothing to lose and lots to gain. We’ve consolidated over 1,250 calories, 50 grams of protein, 250-plus grams of carbohydrates, and 25 vitamins & minerals with added glutamine and creatine into every serving. It’s time to stop thinking small; get serious – Serious Mass.

BEYOND THE BASICS

  • 1,250 calories per serving in water; 1,630-plus calories when made with low fat milk.
  • 50 grams of protein from a combination of faster and slower digesting sources including Whey, Casein,and Egg.
  • 250-plus grams of carbohydrates to support fueling of intense workouts and aid in the replenishment of glycogen stores - with NO ADDED SUGAR.
  • Enhanced with Creatine, L-Glutamine & Glutamine. Peptides, Choline, Inositol, PABA, and MCTs.
  • 25 Vitamins & Essential Minerals with an emphasis on B-Vitamins and Antioxidants.

Chocolate is the Best!
I was very happy to find the Serious Mass on-line at GNC. I had gone to a couple of stores to purchase the chocolate flavor and they had everything but the chocolate. It was easy and convenient. No more running from store to store for me.

Pleasantly surprised delicious
I was pleased when the GNC rep told me "you know this is for bulking " I let him know I was a soon to be 53 woman and was drastically loosing weight and muscle mass. Told him because of my busy lifestyle and work schedule I can not consume enough calories. I also I just started strength exercises, etc and after reading reviews, u chose Serious Mass. He understood and agreed. Had my first drink today: 1/2 serving, banana, cup of oats, and 2 cups whole milk . Modified a reviewers recipe. Chilled in freezer 15 minutes and too my surprise it was delicious

Is it possible to bulk up using mass gainer while you’re 13 yr old?
BashdiBALDI on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If by mass gainer you mean some sort of protein like whey‚ then yes you can bulk up. However since you are only 13 your body is still growing and your metabolism is still very high. You'll have to make sure to have a good healthy diet which is high in protein along with the mass gainer to make sure it works to its fullest potential.
