The Bigger Picture of Lean Gainers:
Don't judge a gainer based solely upon its calories per serving. Because when it comes to gaining lean mass, not all calories are created equally.
Unlike typical weight-gain formulas that are loaded with simple sugars and fat. Pro Complex Gainer derives a much higher percentage of its calories from protein-7 premium protein sources to be exact. By also supplying complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), digestive enzymes, vitamins, essential minerals, and great taste as well, we've created the ideal lean gainer. Pro Complex Gainer was made with quality, not quantity, in mind. Because we understand that you want to get big, not fat.
The Ingredients That Make Up the Mass:
High-Quality Proteins: Pro Complex Gainer is comprised of high biological value proteins, which means they are easily digested and absorbed so they provide a full complement of amino acids to support the rebuilding process. Each serving of Pro Complex Gainer provides a 60-gram dose of premium muscle-building protein made from 7 unique sources.
Complex Carbohydrates & Lipids: Carbohydrates and lipids (fats and oils) provide sustained energy that help prevent proteins from being burned as fuel.* Each serving of Pro Complex Gainer provides 85 grams of carbohydrates and 4-5 grams of fiber with only 5 grams of sugar. In addition Pro Complex Gainer supplies medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and other energy-dense lipids.
Micronutrients: Various vitamins and essential minerals are utilized during the growth process. Without these micronutrients your body cannot effectively process proteins, carbohydrates, or fats. Each serving of Pro Complex Gainer provides 26 vitamins and essential minerals.
Calories: To gain just one extra pound, you need to consume approximately 3,500 calories-above and beyond what you normally consume through foods, beverages, and supplements. Pro Complex Gainer provides over 600 calories per serving. By adding just one serving to your daily routine, you can begin to experience an increase in lean mass within the first week.
Add 1 heaping scoop to about 16 oz of cold water and shake or blend for 45-60 seconds. For a thicker shake try mixing product in a blender with milk and ice. This is a superior mass-gaining supplement that can be used to support high-protein and high-calorie needs in a variety of ways:
Between Meals - Drink 1-2 serving(s) between meals to encourage a positive nitrogen balance and support a high-calorie diet.
Post-Workout - Drink 1 serving 30-60 minutes following exercise to support maximum recovery. Receiving proper nutrition post-workout is paramount...don't neglect it!

Price is great and so is taste - not many servings in each container - a lot of powder is needed per serving
The proof is in the ingredients. When mixed with 15 oz of cool water, this protein shake is a good consistency. Not so thick that you couldn't drink it through a straw. Compared to other mass gainers, this has more protein and less sugar than any of them out there. It has the ingredients you need and not much else. I've put on 20 lbs of lean muscle since September. I take this and the Creapure and hard work in the gym.
