Real Gains is an extremely powerful mass-cultivating support formula that was created with you, a hardcore active and athletic individual, in mind.* Real Gains has more of what you want and less of what you don't: more calories, more protein, more good fats, more taste, more fiber and far less sugar. You want to gain, muscle mass that is, and the right way to do that is with large amounts of protein, which you will find in every scoop of Real Gains, and by cutting fat intake. Rest assured we use only the finest whey protein and micellar casein available on the market. We don't skimp on things that are important and neither should you. Our Real Gains Protein Complex has a top-notch amino acid profile and instantly mixes into a liquid with no blender required.

Large amounts of complex carbs have also been included in every serving since they are an essential part of building and fueling muscle expansion. These carbs are a large source of energy that will support your intensely hardcore weight training routines.* We have also provided you with inulin, a special dietary fiber that will aid in digesting all of the protein, carbs, and fat you need to get big and stay big.* MCT and flaxseed oils are included to aid in hormone production, cell membrane protection and growth, as well as overall daily nutritional needs.* Real Gains is meant to be used together with a well balanced diet and hardcore training routine.

So I'm really loving all the products by universal . I normally drink other protein powders after my workout because I try and gain more weight. Some products I seen results over two/three months but with the one here the "Real gains " bruh I bought the 10 pound bag it lasted for a month I work out 4-5 times a week but only drink it right after my workout I always blend it up with milk taste ******* great no nasty after taste no bloating and I gained mass and weight in the one 10 pound bag that I bought so now I'm out and about to buy another one this is about to be my go to powder

Best bang for your buck!! While other gainers require you to consume 300g+ of powder to get 50g of protein, this produce is a high protein formula, only requiring you to consume 155g of powder for 53g protein! Meaning it's less likely to give you a bloated stomach ache. The tradeoff being that it contains a significantly lower amount of carbohydrates (about half as much on average) compared to most of the other gainers, so there are fewer calories per serving. So if you have a high metabolism like me, you will still need to "eat big". "Then why not drink 2 scoops of regular protein powder to get 50g of protein?" Because for the same or cheaper price this product will give you the 3-4x the amount of calories. I'm an on and off gym goer, and for years I've used this product and it's always helped me bulk back up when i havent hit the gym in a while.

After I tried the Cookies & Cream flavor, this became my go to weight gainer. It is BY FAR the best flavor. Chocolate Ice Cream tastes terrible, while Banana Ice Cream is moderate. Its a lot easier to chug a shake packed full of macros than to fit in meal #6. Keep on keepin on Universal!!!

This is a great product. I started taking this about three weeks ago between 2 and 3 times a week. Starting after wrestling season at about 157, I gained 10 pounds in the first week of using this (this can also be attributed to the start of bulking season). I'm now up to 169, with very minimal use of this product. It does its job effectively, the taste is great as long as you shake it up a bunch, and I'll definitely purchase this in the future. Great value and amount of mass gainer for the price.

I've given this gainer a try for a month and taken according to its intended use at in between of meals and bedtime for a serving of 3-1/2 scoops in place of my whey protein. I have had great results. I can't get in a 3 meals a day like I should but having this has made my workouts productive and recovery much faster. I have noticed strength gains with not much weight increase in a month maybe a pound heavier than before my cycle on this stuff but it comes and goes. Tastes even better when addded to make shakes.

Banana Ice Cream is disgusting flavor i haven't tried so far. As per the macro's its pretty good. I use 2 scoops 1 hr before workout. So no issues with bloating/Gastric.

By far my favorite weight gainer. I have used others on here that cause stomach aches and bloating, however this one works perfectly for me.

This product helped me immensely. I used to be 6' about 160, scrawny and used this product every night before bed and maybe in between meals during a heavy bulk. Always tastes great and it got me up to 190 in a few months. If you're a skinny guy who has trouble holding weight, use this. Be consistent, drink every night before bed and life 4-5 times a week. You'll see a difference quick!

I have used this mass gainer for almost all of my bulking phases. The taste is better than a lot of the other brands, and it works incredibly well. Only downside is the powder doesn't mix the best in water.

Absolutely loved the Chocolate Mint! Was very refreshing from the norm. You can smell it before even breaking the seal. The calories may not seem as high as some gainers, however, this is because this is a more "clean" gainer. Which is actually pretty great. You're not guzzling down a bunch of junk contributing to more fat gain than muscle. This is pretty legit. Company has been around a long time and knows what's up.

My container had a weird smell but overall the cookies and cream did the job. Very easy on the stomach for the most part when mixed with milk or water. I barely experienced clumping. Good quality protein. Added me a few lbs. Will have to consider it again and stick with the same brand.

Cookies & Cream has a slight taste of cream without cookies in my opinion. When i drink it with milk i can't find much difference between shake and just a cup of milk. And i don't feel that it's a real gainer with carbs. It tastes and feels just like milk.
