If you have a hard time packing on quality muscle and size, you're in the right place. While you can pound a gallon of milk per day on your quest for epic gains, you don't necessarily have to. Thankfully, weight-gainer supplements have everything you need!
Weight gainers—also called mass gainers—are supplements specifically designed to help you grow. The best of them pack a solid calorie punch, plenty of protein, ample carbohydrates, a good helping of fats, and plenty of micronutrients or other performance ingredients. Imagine drinking a muscle-building milkshake. That's the sweet feeling a good mass-gainer provides!
If you're in the market for mass but don't know where to begin, start with this list of our 10 best-tasting gainers!
