Best Weight Gain Powders

The list of ingredients is probably the best source of information an average consumer can use in order to judge the quality of a food product. Weight-gain powders usually contain protein powders (e.g., whey protein concentrate powder or whey protein isolate powder, egg-white albumin, powdered (dried) soy milk, and calcium caseinate), sugars (e.g., maltodextrin or fructose), and fat (e.g., medium chain triglycerides—a saturated fat). In addition, weight gain powders may contain other ingredients such as soy lecithin, artificial flavoring, creatine, vitamins, minerals, herbs, digestive enzymes (e.g., pancreatin, papain, and bromelain), etc. Some commercial bodybuilding websites suggest using weight-gain powders that proportionately contain twice as much protein as fat and twice as much carbohydrate as protein (http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/gainers.htm).

Weight Gain Products

Most of the popular (and usually most expensive) weight-gain products usually contain various mixtures of different substances that are meant to provide nutritionally balanced amounts of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates that the body can utilize to gain muscle mass (as opposed to adipose mass). Following this line of reasoning, the best weight-gain product would then be the one that has the “correct” proportion of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates that most closely approximates the nutritional requirements of the majority of consumers. Since, there are currently no individually tailored nutritional supplements available in stores, the best choice ultimately depends upon which works best for which consumer. However, for long-term health considerations, it is generally a good idea to choose products that have little or no artificial additives or preservatives.

Best Protein Product

Whey protein is a currently popular protein supplement (http://www.wellsphere.com/strength-training-article/weight-gain-supplements/438877). Whey protein is available in three degrees of purity or quality: concentrates, isolates, and hydrolysates (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whey_protein). Immunocal (or HMS 90 in Canada) is a whey-protein-isolate powder that has been uniquely processed so as to preserve the undenatured state of cystine, an amino acid complex that can release the amino acid cysteine inside the body (http://www.infraredhealth.com/product_pages/hms90.html). Cysteine, in turn, is one of the three building-block amino acids that produce glutathione; the other two amino acids are glutamic acid and glycine (http://www.hms-90.com/). Glutathione in turn acts as an antioxidant, detoxifier, immune system enhancer, and “DNA synthesis and repair, protein synthesis...amino acid transport and enzyme activation” substance (http://www.accottawa.com/newsInfo/articles/HMS90PhysiciansDeskRef2005.pdf). Immunocal is a whey protein powder that provides not only the highly soluble branched-chain amino acids of whey protein but also supplemental undenatured cysteine (http://www.naturalproductsassoc.org/site/PageServer?pagename=rr_bg_whey; http://www.accottawa.com/newsInfo/articles/HMS90SummaryMedPub.pdf).

Best Protein Products

The purest whey protein (or soy protein products) usually contain very little saturated fat or lactose, and no cholesterol. In addition, such single-ingredient products make it easier for an individual to find out what proportion of dietary fat, protein, and carbohydrate works best for him or her. A blend of simple ingredients such as soy, whey, and egg whites in a single product is a popular alternative that provides numerous beneficial substances (isoflavones, lecithin, and cysteine) in addition to highly soluble proteins. Immunocal, Prolab, Naturade, and SupliMed are some of the more well-known companies that offer pure or simple combinations of powdered protein supplements.

Best Weight Gain Powder

The best weight gain powders don't contain stimulants, artificial flavoring, sweeteners or coloring, and cholesterol; and have only small amounts of lactose, saturated fat, and sugars. Immunocal whey-protein-isolate powder can be considered the best commercially available weight gain powder. There are no known allergic reactions to whey protein (http://www.naturalproductsassoc.org/site/PageServer?pagename=rr_bg_whey) and it contains all of the essential amino acids needed to build muscle and other tissues. There is much information on both the “proven” and the other possible benefits of supplementary whey protein consumption (http://www.naturalproductsassoc.org/site/PageServer?pagename=rr_bg_whey; http://www.accottawa.com/newsInfo/articles/HMS90PhysiciansDeskRef2005.pdf; http://www.accottawa.com/newsInfo/articles/HMS90SummaryMedPub.pdf). Health Canada, the Canadian department for public health, has granted regulatory approval for Immunocal's health claim that it is “a natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of a strong immune system” (http://www.canadianbusiness.com/markets/cnw/article.jsp?content=20071113_122507_3_cnw_cnw). However, since Immunocal provides only protein, it cannot be used as a food substitute and should only be used as a component of a nutritionally balanced diet (http://www.snac.ucla.edu/pages/Resources/Handouts/HOWtGain.pdf).
