MRM All Natural Gainer Rich Vanilla -- 3.3 lbs

No Artificial Flavors or Sweeteners. Hormone Free and BSE Free. Excellent Source of Fiber and Omega-3 DHA & EPA. Fitness • Recovery • Strength • Gluten Free. MRM's All Natural Gainer is an ideal health supplement for individuals looking to add useful calories to their diets as well as to increase or maintain lean body mass. All Natural Gainer makes it simple to add extra calories in proper proportions to a delicious beverage without the hassle of preparing another to-go meal. It was designed for all age groups and active lifestyles. Three Essential Food Categories with Optimal Ingredients. MRM's unique protein complex provides all the essential amino acids to enhance lean muscle growth. Natural Protein Optimizer™ is a special combination of ultra-filtered low temperature processed whey protein concentrate instantized calcium caseinate and egg white protein concentrate. Natural Protein Optimizer™ provides optimal amounts of essential amino acids that growing muscles crave especially BCAA's Glutamine and Arginine. MRM emphasizes the amount of protein per serving since it is the most prominent macronutrient proven to increase lean muscle mass. Additionally MRM has added trehalose a slow release energy substrate that renders little to no effect on insulin with maximum effect on energy and minimal fat storage. All Natural Gainer contains a unique carbohydrate complex consisting of VitaFiber™ (isomalto-oligosaccharide) glucose polymers (maltodextrin) and "low glycemic index" fructose. This preferable combination of fast slow and indigestible carbohydrates provides and excellent source of fiber and calories that are less prone to increase "body fat" while offering a long-lasting source of energy and satiety.  . Although fat is a highly concentrated source of energy (double that of protein and carbohydrates) MRM’s Opti-Fat™ blend was precisely chosen for its ability to be metabolized quickly for energy while offering unique benefits to the heart and cell membrane. Opti-Fat™ is an all natural fat complex that includes Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) sunflower oil and omega-3 fatty acids DHA (docosahexaenoic) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic). MCTs are well known for their ability to be metabolized quickly into energy sparing protein for building lean tissue. DHA and EPA are long chain omega-3 fatty acids which are mostly deficient in the standard American diet. DHA specifically has been widely acclaimed for its structural benefits in brain development and cognition during adolescence and maintaining mental acuity in the elderly. Combine MRM's All Natural Gainer with a sensible diet and physical exercise program for best overall lean body mass gains.

kids love it!
 April 2, 2014
"I was looking for a natural gainer that my 14yr old son would like enough to drink regularly. He's a bean pole and is involved in track - but there's just no fat to convert for energy (which means his body would be looking at using his muscle - urgh). The DR even made it a point to mention his low BMI. The problem I have with most the mass gainers is that they're chock full of unnatural or suspect ingredients, like aspartame - things I don't want my kids to be eating regularly. I like the ingredients in this AND both my boys LOVE the taste. They like it so much that they don't forget to drink it. I don't have to remind them, ever. That's huge bc we're in that fostering responsible independence stage. So, I'm stoked.
I got the French Vanilla bc I thought with as much as he needs to be drinking it, it might be more versatile than the chocolate. I'm glad I did bc it tastes like ice cream and he loves it in both milk (plain cow and chocolate almond) and juice. Just adds more options, keeps him from getting too bored with it.
Mixes better than most. I add a little liquid to the the 2 huge scoops and beat it with a fork, then I add the rest of the liquid. It'd be even easier with the proper cup (with a wire metal ball). When I'm rushed and the boys end up with a lot of the mix still on the sides of the cup they scrape it off and eat it; they like the taste that much. I just don't think you can go wrong with this gainer."

tastes great, adds weight
 March 13, 2014
"All my life I've struggled to maintain a healthy weight. I've almost always been underweight by several pounds. This product helps me to maintain a desired weight without having to eat more food. Junk, or otherwise. Three meals plus a shake helped me to gain the extra weight I needed. It mixes well and tastes great. Not real thick or gloppy at all. I mix it with milk and it works great for me."

Great natural protein product!

"This is a great tasting and easily digestible protein supplement. I also recommend the MRM egg white protein for a great protein source with fewer calories."
