 Cytosport’s CytoGainer


Cytosport's CytoGainer features a calorically dense, lean muscle maximizing formula with creatine and glutamine. It includes whey protein, complex carbs, creatine, glutamine and Cytovite vitamin and mineral mix. Cytogainer is specially formulated for athletes and bodybuilders to help increase and maintain muscle mass and weight without added fat.

Each serving of CytoGainer contains an impressive 56 grams of unfiltered, non-denatured, high quality whey protein concentrate and pre-digested, ion-exchanged whey protein hydrolysate. The whey peptides and fractions supply muscles with IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) and BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) to promote protein synthesis, muscle growth and recovery. The addition of conditionally essential amino acid glutamine improves protein metabolism and supports an anabolic (muscle building) environment.

CytoGainer's highly complexed maltodextrins from corn hybrids replenish muscle and liver glycogen (energy) stores, to stabilize energy and prevent sugar crash. Creatine is a naturally occurring metabolite found in muscle that helps increase muscle mass, energy, strength, endurance and recovery.


CytoGainer delivers 56 grams of protein, 2 grams of glutamine, 3 grams of creatine and 620 calories per serving. It is 97% fat free and 98% lactose free with no added sucrose, aspartame or fructose. CytoGainer powder mixes instantly with no blender required.

CytoGainer has the following benefits:

  • 56 grams of whey protein promotes muscle mass
  • Boosts caloric intake without added fat for maximum weight gain
  • 2 grams of glutamine supports muscle building
  • Creatine increases muscle size, strength and endurance


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.

No toxicity has been reported in studies with creatine. However, 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 CytoGainer.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in CytoGainer including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Docetaxel
  • Fluorouracil
  • Methotrexate
  • Paclitaxel
