Mass gainers may seem like a great solution if you’re a fitness enthusiast or an athlete looking to pack some extra pounds. However, gainers contain additives in the form quick releasing carbs and added table sugar (Sucrose). This can cause a spike in blood sugar levels and lead to hyperglycemic events. Optimising your mass gainer intake can reduce the risk of these events and achieve better glucose control.

Optimise your mass gainer experience with biohacks
• Consider reducing the quantity of gainer you consume per serving.
• Add whey protein to the mix to increase the protein quantity and offset the carb load.
• Avoid mass gainers with added table sugar (sucrose).

• Hyperglycemia caused by mass gainers can have negative implications on glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity. Next time you reach for a mass gainer, remember that healthier alternatives can help you get the desired results without risking your health.
