What BSN have to say:
Ultra-Premium Protein/Carbohydrate Matrix
TRUE-MASS® is an ultra-premium mass gainer, designed to support muscle growth and recovery of normal muscle function after high intensity or long-lasting physical exercise. The formula behind TRUE-MASS® features a 2-to-1 ratio of workout-fueling carbohydrates to muscle building protein, with 90 grams of carbs per serving and 50 grams of protein at 700 calories. Plus, we included 6 grams of dietary fiber per serving and Medium Chain Triglycerides to round out the nutritional value of each shake and complement BSN®’s legendary great taste. Beneficial effects contributed by carbohydrate source are obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4 g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.
Gain with the Best of Them!
TRUE-MASS® features BSN®’s signature ultra-premium protein formula to feed an athlete’s muscles with the essential protein need to promote growth. The unique carbohydrate blend provides the caloric support necessitated by extreme physical exertion, helping the body prepare for and support the recovery of normal muscle function. Healthy fats are also included in this formula to provide additional nutritional benefits. And all these high-quality ingredients come delivered with BSN®’s exclusive flavor technology, producing one of the most mouth-watering mass-gaining shakes on the market.
BSN®’s PROTEIN POWDERS VS. TRUE-MASS®
BSN®’s protein powders, such as Syntha-6® and Syntha-6® Isolate, are comprised primarily of protein and contain only small amounts of fats and carbohydrates, while staying under approximately 200 calories per serving. These protein powders are recommended to supplement protein intake through-out the day and as a post workout shake. While TRUE-MASS® is a perfectly good option for these applications as well, its strength lies in its formula of a 2-to-1 ratio of carbohydrates to protein, which is geared towards athletes who require an above normal caloric intake or who have a hard time meeting their caloric intake with a well-balanced diet alone.
