IDS' Smart Gainer

 

Description


IDS' Smart Gainer features a calorically dense formula specially developed to build muscle mass while minimizing fat gain. It includes whey protein, maltodextrin, creatine, glutamine, MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) and ALA (alpha lipoic acid). Smart Gainer provides large amounts of quality calories, protein and creatine to build muscles without added fat.

Smart Gainer contains 51 grams of 100% ultra low temperature cross micro filtered whey protein in a proprietary blend of whey concentrate from milk and soy. It promotes protein synthesis and maximum nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein) The addition of conditionally essential amino acid glutamine improves protein metabolism and supports muscle growth and recovery.

Creatine is a naturally occurring metabolite found in muscle that can increase muscle mass, energy, strength, endurance and recovery. MCTs enhance fat metabolism and promote leanness. Maltodextrin's complex carbs replenish muscle and liver glycogen (energy) stores and help regulate blood sugar levels. ALA shuttles carbs to muscles, not fat cells, while helping the body maintain normal blood sugar and insulin levels.


Pros


Smart Gainer delivers 51 grams of protein, 3 grams of creatine and 656 calories per serving. IDS follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).

Smart Gainer has the following benefits:

  • 51 grams of whey protein promotes nitrogen retention
  • Builds muscle mass while minimizing fat gain
  • ALA supports normal blood sugar and insulin levels
  • 3 grams of creatine increases muscle size, strength and endurance


Cons


People who are allergic to dairy products should avoid whey protein.

Few side effects are associated with glutamine supplementation. However, mega-dosing with glutamine over an extended period of time may result in potential side effects such as diarrhea, weakness and nausea.

Stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea and muscle cramping have been reported with creatine use. Powdered creatine requires large doses to ensure complete assimilation in the body. Large doses of powdered creatine are associated with side effects such as water retention. Since creatine attracts water to cells, unabsorbed creatine monohydrate can remain outside cells and cause bloating, dehydration and cramping.

Pregnant or lactating women and people with pre-existing medical conditions or taking medications should consult a physician before taking Smart Gainer.
Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in Smart Gainer including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin
  • Cyclophosphamide

  • Fluorouracil
  • Methotrexate
  • Paclitaxel
