Serious Mass is formulated for athletes who are serious about packing on quality mass. The manufacturers advertise that it is one of the best protein supplements and is specifically designed to helping you gain muscle.

Though Serious Mass does stay true to its word and offer a large dose of much that you need to build muscle and recover from workouts, it may be a little too much to handle for some.

That being said, we wanted to look into its ingredients and dosages to see how it worked.

Serious Mass Ingredients

Apart from a lot of nutrients and vitamins, Serious Mass includes several ingredients that are commonly used in protein supplements to help increase muscle size and reduce recovery time after workouts.

Creatine Monohydrate tops the list of key ingredients in Serious Mass. Creatine is used by nearly every muscle builder to help speed up the process of muscle building.

L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid that helps to convert protein into muscle mass. By including this amino acid, Serious Mass increase the ability of the added protein to be useful.

Glutamine Peptideshelp to increase the efficiency and function of Glutamine.

Other ingredients in Serious Mass consist of the protein blend that gives the blend most of its nutrients, as well as a few other ingredients to help give it better taste.

Through this long list of ingredients, you can expect to get about 1,250 calories per serving.

Does Serious Mass Work?

Each great-tasting serving delivers that high amount of calories built on a foundation of 50 grams of muscle building protein from high-quality sources including Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, and Egg Albumen.

A combination of low glycemic carbohydrates and MCTs will fuel your body with enough energy to carry you through even the most demanding workouts.

In addition, Creatine Monohydrate and Glutamine have been added to help optimize each strength-training workout, while a complete Vitamin and Essential Mineral profile ensures your body gets the balanced nutrition it needs.

It is certain, with all of these ingredients and processes in play, that Serious Mass will help you to get muscle mass quickly and effectively, however there are a couple other considerations to keep in mind.

Drawbacks of Serious Mass

By giving you so many calories in one serving, Serious Mass takes up nearly all the allowed calories for those on a 2,000 calorie diet. Aside from being extremely high in calories, many of the ingredients in Serious Mass are not helpful to promote weight loss or muscle gain.

For example, there are 20 grams of sugar in one serving of Serious Mass. Even with the 50 grams of protein that are added into this mix, the extra refined sugar in your system will not help to bolster the function of any of the ingredients that work to promote muscle gain.

Because Serious Mass has such a massive list of ingredients and dosages, it is rather pricey. Most tubs go between $80 and $100.

What We Recommend

Serious Mass does use a lot of top-notch ingredients, and they are careful to keep nutrients and vitamins mixed in with the protein and amino acids. This can help to increase the effectiveness of the protein supplement.

On the other hand, based on the number of calories per serving, as well as the amount of sugar in each serving, we recommend looking for a supplement that is a little lighter on calories.

ON Serious Mass

Well, i must admit i´ve used this suplement for almost 3/4 months and i´ve gained not too much but fat due to the cal included per serving. I know it is a gainer but it has done for me Nothing. I have changed my suplement to Gold Standard 100% Whey pro ON and it has worked so good for me, no fat but a lean mass, bigger and i feel strong. I´d preffer Gold Standard than Serious Mass, anyway it´s better trying all those products by your self to see results.
