Progain is an enhanced weight gainer that provides your body with the "right" calories it needs to gain weight and muscle bulk. Progain avoids using cheap fillers, inferior proteins and simple sugars that can cause stomach upsets, wind and side effects, which are common with low quality weight gainers. Progain is one the first weight gainer to include low glycaemic Inulin, an oligofructose based carbohydrate which is digested so slowly, it hardly affects blood sugar levels. This dramatically reduces the insulin response, which causes excess sugar calories to be removed from the blood and stored as bodyfat, a common problem with high sugar formulas. Nutriose is also included, another special low glycaemic fibre. The addition of these ingredients, along with MCTs dramatically helps you take in extra calories, that are far more likely to used to build lean muscle, rather than layers of fat (that fructose and sugar laden weight gainers often create).
Progain includes exclusive fats known as Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), which, although providing the full 9 calories per gram, are treated by the body to act like carbohydrates, making them ideal for weight gainers. MCTs provide calories, which are least likely to be just stored as bodyfat. By avoiding cheap fats and fillers, Progain will help you gain lean muscular weight.
Progain contains an exclusive whey protein blend called Biomax. Biomax contains whey protein fractions selected for their muscle-building properties and is one of the most effective protein sources for anyone wanting to gain weight and muscle bulk. Biomax has a higher biological value than all proteins, including casein, egg, chicken, tuna and soya. Biological value relates to how much of the protein consumed is actually absorbed and used by your body.
Progain contains the essential amino acids and is rich in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are used for energy during exercise and need to be replaced. They also play a key role in supporting muscle growth. Because of it's fast digestion, Progain is ideal for use immediately after exercise. Most nutrition experts agree that protein and carbohydrate taken immediately after exercise is one of the best ways to gain muscle bulk.
Progain is the first protein powder to ensure its whey protein (Biomax) contains natural levels of Orotic acid - a substance in whey that aids muscle growth and is an essential intermediate in DNA and RNA production.
Progain is also rich in glutamine, an amino acid considered by most nutrition experts to be essential for anyone exercising regularly. Glutamine reduces the risk of overtraining, strengthens the immune system and has also been shown to aid muscle growth.
Progain can also be used with milk - which is rich in casein - to create a time-release protein for use at night or whenever you want a slowly-digested source of protein.
Progain has been made stronger with the addition of Nitrogain, a blend of Glutamine peptide, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), taurine and chromium polynicotinate. These nutrients have been included for their ability to help build muscle size and strength.

Start taking two scoops a day (mixed with 500 ml of water) for a week, if you don't notice an increase of around 1-3 lbs a week, add another scoop to your daily servings. Keep adding scoops each week until you are gaining 1-2 lbs weekly. If you want to put on muscle you should be using Progain in conjunction with an effective training regime and high protein diet. For optimum energy levels and recovery, try taking half a scoop of Progain around 45 mins before training and one scoop immediately after.

I have used this product on and off for that last few years. It is a very good source of protein and carbs but it cannot be used long term as it does bloat you. Read morePublished 5 months ago by The Badger
