7 of the Main Benefits of Using Weight Gain Powder
- Updated: March 14, 2017
When we think of our bodies, it’s pretty safe to say that most of us would much rather lose weight than gain it, but despite this, there are a number of people in the world that struggle greatly with their weight, only for them the problem is that they simply can’t seem to gain it. For example, people who are recovering from eating disorders such as anorexia, may need to gain weight for medical reasons. Elderly people or people recovering from medical procedures may also need to gain weight, but in terms of people deliberately looking to gain weight, bodybuilders, Powerlifters, strongmen, and athletes are those that immediately spring to mind, and quite rightly so.

Obviously the weight they’re looking to gain will come mainly in the form of muscle mass, but again, gaining muscle mass is far from simple, no matter how hard they train or how much chicken they eat. For people looking to increase their muscle mass, a weight gain powder could prove incredibly useful. Weight gain powder supplements are designed to help people to safely and effectively gain weight in a controlled manner, without having to consume copious amounts of food in the process. Here’s a look at 7 of the main benefits of using a weight gain powder.
Increased muscle mass – Starting with the most obvious benefit we have the fact that weight gain powder supplements are proven to be able to help an individual add substantial amounts of muscle mass to their frames, in a relatively simple manner.
Of course they still need to train their butts off in the gym, whilst making sure to follow a healthy and balanced diet and lifestyle. The weight gain powder, however, allows them to consume hundreds, even thousands of additional, high-quality calories, all by simply drinking a nutritious and delicious shake. In order to gain muscle mass, a calorie surplus must be achieved, as any deficit, no matter how small it may be, will result in weight loss. Weight gain powder supplements allow you to easily get those calories inside your body, with minimal effort required.
Rapid rate of absorption – Another benefit of weight gain powder supplements is the fact that, as they are consumed in liquid form, all of the nutrients, proteins, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals etc, are absorbed far quicker and far more efficiently than if they had been delivered via whole food sources. Protein, for example, is notoriously difficult for the body to digest, so it can take several hours before the main proteins and amino acids can be absorbed fully, with many sadly going to waste as they’re destroyed by the stomach acid before they can be absorbed. Weight gain supplements, however, are in liquid form which means that the calories and the nutrients are absorbed much, much quicker than whole foods, so they get to work much faster.
Full of nutrients – People often think that weight gain supplements are unhealthy because they’re so rich in calories, but in reality they are packed full of nutrients that the human body craves and adores. For example, as well as containing protein and amino acids, these supplements also contain healthy fats, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and much more besides. This in turn makes us fitter and healthier than ever, especially when it comes to our immune systems.
Great tasting – Another benefit of these supplements is the fact that they taste great. Let’s face it, as beneficial as some protein powders and powdered supplements may be, in terms of taste, they often leave a lot to be desired. Weight gain powder supplements, however, taste amazing so that drinking them actually becomes a treat and something to look forward to. Common flavours include: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, though there are many, many other flavour combos now available, including strawberry shortcake and cookies and cream, to name just two.
Convenient – The convenience factor is another thing that makes weight gain powder supplements so beneficial. Some of these powders provide around 1,300 calories per serving, which is the equivalent of two large sized dinners. Rather than having to eat two huge dinners, however, to get that many calories in your body, all you need to do is drink a weight gain supplement at your leisure. They’re great for road trips, long journeys, or for taking into the office when you need calories and energy quickly.
Diverse – Another great benefit of these powders is that they’re very diverse, so if you are sick and tired of drinking them as shakes with either milk, or water, you can use the powder in a variety of different ways instead. For example, you can use them for baking, mixing a scoop or two into various batters or dough mixes. You can make protein pancakes, cupcakes, muffins, breads, cakes, and much more besides, all of which will taste absolutely amazing.
Increased strength – Another benefit of weight gainers is that, as they contain so many calories per serving, when using them your strength and energy levels will be through the roof. There’s a reason why we grow weaker when we diet, and that reason is a lack of calories. If you do the opposite, however, and increase calories, you become stronger, you lift more, and your workouts become more productive in the process.
