POWER MASSIVE - A HEALTHY WAY TO GAIN WEIGHT

Introduction:

Mass gainers are supplements loaded with calories that help in gaining weight. They are derived from carbohydrates, proteins and fats and are quite popular amongst the underweight and body-builders. It is important to have a higher intake of carbohydrates and proteins than normal to gain weight. A mass gainer when combined with a balanced diet provides better and faster results.

Benefits of Steadfast Power Massive:

  • Rich in carbohydrates: Mass Gainers have a rich amount of carbohydrates that supply energy which is very helpful for replenishing the lost stores of glycogen after an intense workout.
  • High-quality whey protein: Mass Gainers are made up of high-quality whey protein which promotes muscle growth, reduces inflammation, and provides satiety. 
  • Muscle recovery & growth: Mass Gainers aid in muscle growth and recovery. People involved in intense workout regimes require a high-calorie diet. Hence, these mass gainers help them meet their daily nutritional needs. A balanced combination of carbohydrates and proteins helps them to grow muscle mass.  
  • Blend of minerals & vitamins: Mass Gainers consist of vitamins and minerals which strengthen bones, heal wounds, and improve the functioning of the immune system.

Ingredients of Power Massive and their functions:

1. Maltodextrin: This complex carbohydrate helps in providing sustained energy during endurance activities, preventing the chances of insulin drop. 

2. Dextrose monohydrate: Dextrose is an energy-dense carbohydrate that can enter the bloodstream rapidly, hence, helps to replenish the glycogen stores.

3. Fructose: Fructose has a low glycemic index, and provides a slow and steady release of energy for muscles to work efficiently. It helps fitness enthusiasts and athletes to restore their depleted glycogen reserves in muscles and liver after a strenuous workout.

4. Whey protein concentrate: Whey protein is a fast-releasing protein that promotes muscle mass and adds healthy calories to the diet. 

5. Calcium caseinate: Casein is a slow-digesting protein that boosts muscle growth and helps in recovery after a workout. Casein helps  release amino acids slowly. Therefore, people generally take it before bedtime to prevent muscle breakdown while they sleep.

6. Potassium chloride: Potassium chloride works well to maintain blood pressure and proper hydration levels and lowers the risk of recurring kidney stones. 

7. Sodium chloride: Sodium chloride compensates for the fluid lost during exercise through sweat. It is imperative to remain hydrated after a workout or during a competition to avoid headaches, lethargy, and loss of focus.

8. Tri-calcium phosphate: Tri-calcium phosphate helps in cell functioning, growth of the bones and energy production. It is also used as an effective nutritional supplement since it is readily absorbed in the body. 

9. Magnesium oxide:. Magnesium oxide prevents leg cramps that can occur due to dehydration, reduces the risk of blood pressure fluctuations, fatigue, muscle and bone pain, and insomnia. 

10. Ferric pyrophosphate: Ferric pyrophosphate is an iron substitute that is used to prevent iron deficiency in people undergoing dialysis due to chronic kidney disease. Iron helps produce red blood cells that carry oxygen via blood to other parts of the body.

11. Zinc sulphate monohydrate: Zinc is a naturally occurring micronutrient that helps in the proper growth and development of the body. Zinc sulphate monohydrate is used to treat nutritional deficiencies by replenishing low levels of zinc.

12. Manganese sulphate monohydrate: Manganese sulphate breaks down amino acids and is used in the production of energy. It activates enzymes for proper digestion and utilization of foods. Manganese plays a crucial role in healthy skeletal development and maintaining good brain health. 

13. Copper Sulphate Pentahydrate: Copper sulphate addresses copper deficiency and the resulting anaemia. It is also helpful in wound healing, Alzheimer's disease, treating arthritis, and osteoporosis. 

14. Chromium Chloride: Chromium increases muscle mass, and decreases body fat, improves athletic performance, increases energy levels, and prevents age-related mental decline. It also transports glucose from the bloodstream into the cells where it is used as energy, and converts fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy.

15. Sodium Molybdate: Sodium molybdate is a chemically modified form of sodium, a natural salt. Sodium molybdate is used as a nutritional supplement that can treat a sodium deficiency by replenishing the sodium stores in your body.

16. Potassium Iodide: Potassium iodide is used as a nutritional supplement in the human diet. It is an additive commonly used to "iodize" table salt to prevent iodine deficiency amongst people. 

17. Sodium Selenite: Sodium Selenite protects the body from oxidative damage and helps activate anticancer agents. It prevents heart problems, possesses anti-inflammatory properties, and stimulates the functioning of the immune system.

18. Thickener (INS 412): INS 412 is a natural food additive and is also known by the name Guar Gum. It is widely used as a thickener, stabiliser, emulsifier, or as a drying/firming agent, and as a flavour enhancer in food products and dietary supplements. 

19. Emulsifier {INS 322(i)}: Antioxidant INS 322 or Lecithin is used as an emulsifier, antioxidant and flavour protector in dietary supplements. It helps to increase immunity in diabetic people and reduces digestive distress by improving digestion.

20. Choline Bitartrate: Choline bitartrate is choline combined with a salt of tartaric acid that has a much better absorption rate as compared to pure choline. Choline Bitartrate helps reduce inflammation and improves liver, brain and heart health. 

21. L-Ascorbic Acid: Ascorbic acid is a form of vitamin C found naturally in most fruits and vegetables. Ascorbic acid has good bioavailability and acts as an important co-factor during collagen biosynthesis.

22. DL-Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate: Alpha-Tocopheryl acetate is a specific type of vitamin E, that is a fat-soluble antioxidant. It helps to treat vitamin E deficiency, promotes  healthy skin, helps with wound healing, lowers inflammation, and improves cognitive function.

23. Nicotinamide: Nicotinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that helps to decrease anxiety and stress in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. It also helps in preventing insulin resistance, inflammation, osteoarthritis, and hyperphosphatemia.

24. Retinyl Acetate: Retinyl Acetate is a form of retinol, that is a preformed source of vitamin A. It is an essential nutrient that helps in vision, immune function, taste, hearing, appetite, skin renewal, bone development, and growth.

25. Ergocalciferol: Ergocalciferol is a type of vitamin D used in dietary supplements that helps the body use more calcium. Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the body. It enables healthy bone growth and prevents the risk of bone problems such as rickets, osteomalacia or, osteoarthritis. 

26. Pyridoxine Hydrochloride: Pyridoxine Hydrochloride or vitamin B6, is needed by the body for utilization of energy, production of red blood cells, proper nerve functioning and, prevention of vitamin B6 deficiency. 

27. Riboflavin: Riboflavin or vitamin B2 is required for the development of skin tissues and lining of the digestive tract, formation of blood cells, and proper functioning of the brain. It is also used to prevent riboflavin deficiency, treat migraine, acne and muscle cramps. 

28. Thiamine Hydrochloride: Thiamine Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt form of thiamine- a vitamin that helps prevent complications of nervous system, muscles, heart, stomach, and intestines. It also helps in electrolytes movement in and out of the muscle and nerve cells.

29. N-pteroyl-l-glutamic acid: n-pteroyl-l-glutamic acid is a folate derivative found in foods like yeast, spinach, beef, liver and peas. Glutamic acid is an amino acid used by the body to synthesize proteins and is the most common stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system. 

30. D-Biotin:  D-biotin or vitamin B-7 helps in various metabolic processes in the body. It is responsible for lipid and protein metabolism and converts food into glucose. It also helps in maintaining skin and hair health. 

31. Cyanocobalamin: Cyanocobalamin or vitamin B12 helps in the production of red blood cells and nerve cells. It also supports the synthesis of amino acids and converts carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B12 delays muscle fatigue and tiredness, thereby enhancing strength and endurance.
