Body Fortress make widely-available supplements, but are they any good? Does their appearance at every major store make them good, or is it because they’re cheap and easy?
In our brief Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer Review, you get to find out right now…
Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer boasts over 1,000 calories per serving, with 40g of protein. That’s 6 scoops, but you can also take it in 3-scoop servings for a slightly leaner experience – and less bloating or farting.
Let’s get into the specifics, and whether you actually want to put them into your body…
Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer Ingredients
The main ingredients in Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer are whey protein, the carbohydrate complex, added electrolytes, and BCAAs from amino acid fortified whey.
Each 6-scoop serving of Body Fortress mass gainer provides:
- 1,030 calories
- 40g protein
- 198g carbs
- 10g fat.
This is a carb-centered mass gainer and relatively low in protein compared to calories/carbs when we look at other products on the market.
The macronutrients look something like this:
This isn’t the best balance we’ve seen, with a roughly 5:1 ratio of carbs to protein. This means you need to take Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer post-workout to get the best effects.
After a hard workout, these carbs are a great way to replenish your glycogen stores and boost recovery.
Any other time of day, however, they’re not great – as you spike insulin levels for no reason, and can easily get some unwanted fullness or bloating from 1,030 calories of mass gainer.
Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer Benefits
The main benefit of Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer is – of course – easier weight gain and muscle growth. It’s a high calorie supplement with a major focus on post workout use to put the huge carb content to work in the muscles.
This makes it an obligate post-workout shake, due to the macros. You can use a 3-scoop serving during the daytime, but we’d reserve the larger 6-scoop serving for post-workout, or you’re going to feel heavy and slow, with those carbs not having a ‘job’ in the body.
The high levels of BCAAs are also great in the post-workout role, where they’re going to be a fantastic way to support your recovery and put the relatively slim 40g of protein to work.
This is a relatively simple product and the recovery boost and extra calories are the whole point – which also makes it a relatively strong choice for athletes looking to refuel between training.
In my experience, this kind of carb load does require managing and planning ahead!
The verdict of this brief Body Fortress Super Advanced Mass Gainer review is simple: it’s an okay super mass gainer, but it’s definitely not super advanced, and it’s not as good as some of the other competitors on the market.
We’ve seen this product in so many stores and on sale so often, and it seems to be the result of never carving out a clear niche. If you want a big, hard-hitting mass gainer then you could do better with Dymatize Super Mass Gainer or ON Serious Mass.
It’s hard to recommend this product on quality when it’s out-classed, but it does offer relatively good value, so it could be a good choice if you’re low on cash and want to go by dollar-per-calorie.
Overall, it’s going to do the job, but it’s not the best choice for most people, most of the time…
|Boosts weight gain speed and amount?||Yes|
|Improves weight gain quality (more muscle, less fat)?||Yes|
|Uses healthier carbs than other mass gainers?||No|
|Reduces muscle damage and improves exercise performance?||Somewhat|
|Great digestive profile for a happier gut?||No|
|More calories than most competitors?||No|
