True Mass, as its name suggests, is one of the best mass gainer supplements. It is created by BSN. Now, BSN is an award winning sports nutrition manufacturer that was founded in 2001. Since its inception, the company has formulated numerous supplements; pre workouts, proteins, performance enhancers and they even have the DNA series supplements. True Mass is just one of their many protein supplements. It was engineered to give body builders an edge in muscle gain and strength. It is good to know that this formula was reinvented later on to create the True Mass 1200 supplement. The difference between the two lies primarily in the protein to carbohydrates ratio.
True Mass from BSN is designed to support muscle gain and increase muscle size. BSN claims that this is the product that contains their signature protein formula for optimum synthesis of muscle protein, enhancement and growth of lean muscles and it is also great for weight management. BSN goes ahead and states categorically, that True Mass’ special blend of carbohydrates will provide sufficient calorie support after the users’ most intense work out. So in essence, this supplement doubles up as a mass gainer and a post work out supplement. It is also packed with a healthy dose of fats that provide more energy to help the body recover after the extreme exertion in the gym.
This earlier version of True Mass is made up of 2:1 carbohydrates to protein ratio. For every serving, you get up to 45g of proteins, 90g of carbohydrates, 6g of fiber and a whooping 700 calories. It is clear now why True Mass easily doubles up as a post work out supplement – notice the emphasis on energy giving ingredients. Below is a more detailed list of ingredients, broken down into constituent compounds.
