BSN's True Mass

Description


BSN's True Mass is an AM to PM protein and carbohydrate blend lean mass gainer. It contains six ultra premium protein sources, active protein utilization enzymes, BCAAs (branched chain amino acids), glutamine peptides, MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), EFAs (essential fatty acids), amino acid glutamine and essential vitamins and minerals. True Mass is specially designed for athletes and bodybuilders requiring a calorie- and nutrient-dense meal alternative to promote lean muscle mass gains.

The sustained release ultra-premium protein matrix features fast-release and slow-release proteins. They promote an eight hour sustained flow of vital amino acids to support positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein) for muscle gain and recovery. Hydrolyzed whey proteins have a 1/2 to 1 hour digestion rate, ultra-filtered and microfiltered whey protein concentrates and egg albumin have a 2 to 3 hour digestion rate, milk protein concentrate has a 4 to 6 hour digestion rate and calcium caseinates and micellar alpha and beta-caseins have a 6 to 8 hour digestion rate. The addition of BCAAs leucine, valine and isoleucine and conditionally essential amino acid glutamine support muscle energy, recovery and repair.

MCTs and EFAs are “good” fats that promote fat metabolism and lean muscle. MCTs are medium chain fatty acids that are more easily digested than larger fat molecules and more likely burned for muscle energy than stored as fat.  The active protein utilization enzymes include aminogen and papain. Aminogen is a naturally derived, patented plant enzyme that aids in protein digestion and assimilation. Papain (derived from papayas) is a digestive enzyme and natural anti-inflammatory agent.

Pros

True Mass is an AM to PM sustained release protein powder with up to 8 hours of amino acid delivery to muscles. This powdered mass gainer provides 46 grams of protein, 76 grams of complex carbs and 630 calories per serving.
