5 great mass gainers that’ll help you pack on the pounds

Published by Finn Hayden

Many people think that to get stronger and gain muscle, you just need to work hard at the gym. That’s definitely an important step, but it could be argued that your diet is even more important.

If you’re wanting to build muscle then you need to gain weight. This might sound simple enough, but some people really struggle to get extra calories in when trying to gain weight. This is where a mass gainer can be really useful. Being able to drink the calories instead of eating them makes it much more convenient and less of a hassle to gain weight. There are lots of options when it comes to mass gainers, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best mass gainers that you can buy in the UK. Let’s get into it:

Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass

We've got a whole review of this mass gainer that you can check out for our detailed thoughts, but as a quick overview - we definitely think it was one of the best mass gainers we tried, even if it's a little expensive and a little low in protein. We'd recommend going for the Chocolate flavour as the Vanilla flavour is too sweet. Learn more and buy it here -

USN Wholefood Gainer

We wanted to give the USN Wholefood Gainer the top spot in our guide because it’s vegan friendly, which means everyone can consume it. Despite being vegan, it’s completely free from soy, but also manages to pack 30g of protein per serving. It’s mostly made from oats which is great because they’re high in calories and carbs - in fact, you’ll get 387 calories per 100g of this mass gainer. Flavours include chocolate and vanilla, learn more and buy it here -

Weider is a big name in the world of supplements, and we recently updated our protein bread guide to include a product from this brand. This mash gainer from Weider is a great product to buy if you’re wanting to pack on weight quickly. You get 27g of protein per serving, which is similar to a standard protein powder. It also contains a vitamin and mineral complex which is an additional benefit. Despite having a sweet taste, this mass gainer actually contains no aspartame, which is great to see.
