Mass Gainers are worth considering for those who have trouble gaining weight through diet alone. However, not all Mass Gainers are created equal, and many are nothing more than refined sugar and low-quality protein. Fortunately, we sifted through dozens of different mass gainers and compiled this list of 10 we consider the best…
MTS Nutrition Epic GainsFIND IT HERE
Epic Gains by MTS Nutrition is as good as it gets when it comes to clean, lean, effective mass gainers.

NutraBio Extreme MassFIND IT HERE
Extreme Mass is one of the more comprehensive, high quality mass gainers available, which is something we have generally come to expect from NutraBio. With a multi-vitamin complex, multiple protein sources (fast and slow digesting), as well as a well-balanced carbohydrate mix, Extreme Mass has everything needed to pack on some (mostly lean) mass.
Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro BuilderFIND IT HERE
Platinum Hydro Builder differs from most other mass gainers in that it contains very little fat and carbohydrates. What it does contain, however, is a complete spectrum of slow and fast-digesting proteins as well as clinical doses of Creatine and Betaine (both effective for increasing muscle size).
Dymatize Elite MassFIND IT HERE
Dymatize Elite Mass is your standard high protein, high carb mass gainer, but the addition of Creatine and a high dose of BCAAs certainly places the emphasis on muscle growth more than many other mass gainers on the market.
NAKED Nutrition Naked MassFIND IT HERE
Naked Mass contains just three ingredients: Maltodextrin, Whey Protein and Micellar Casein. Although the formula may seem basic, Naked Mass is perfect for those who value simplicity, but not at the expense of efficacy.
Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex GainerFIND IT HERE
Optimum Pro Complex Gainer isn’t some revolutionary, groundbreaking formula, but contains all the essentials if gaining a few pounds is the goal.
Pro Supps Incredi BulkFIND IT HERE
Inredi Bulk provides a hefty 50g of protein per serving, paired with an astounding 250g of carbohydrates. For this reason, we’d only recommend it to those who lift everyday and have trouble gaining weight.
Mutant MassFIND IT HERE
Mutant Mass is high on all macro nutrients. With 50g of protein, 182g of carbohydrates, and 14g of fat per serving, it is certainly going to be effective for gaining a few pounds. That said, it’s not as lean as some of the other towards the top of this list.
MusclePharm Combat BlackFIND IT HERE
Similar to Mutant Mass, Combat Black is a high carb, high protein, high fat formula designed to do one thing: pack on mass. An additional 2g of Creatine per serving may subtly increase muscle size over time, but additional Creatine can be added for more noticeable effects.
Myogenix After Shock Critical MassFIND IT HERE
Myogenix After Shock Critical Mass may seem a little old school, but what can we say? It’ll get the job done and makes for a particularly effective post-workout supplement (it can be taken any time though).
