Vital Strength Extreme Rapid Weight Gainer Review

Vital Strength has firmly entrenched itself as one of Australia's leading supplement manufacturers, with nearly 20 years' experience in formulating, manufacturing and marketing health foods and sports supplements. The Vital Strength brand is synonymous with health and athletic performance in Australia.

Extreme Rapid Weight Gainer is Vital Strength's rapid bulking protein, combining several sources of carbohydrates and protein, along with added amino acids, vitamins and minerals to promote rapid weight gain. Extreme Rapid Weight Gainer provides carbs to protein in a 5:4 ratio, which is ideal for boosting muscle gain without aggressively spurring body fat growth.

Extreme Rapid Weight Gainer Key Ingredients

  • Protein Blend - Extreme Rapid Bulk Gain Protein combines protein from three sources - whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and calcium caseinate. The whey sources are fairly quick-digesting - often within 1-2 hours, while the casein digests at a much slower rate. The result of this is an immediate and then sustained release of amino acids which promotes a positive nitrogen balance and an ideal muscle building environment.

  • Carbohydrate Blend - The carb sources in Extreme Rapid Bulk Gain Protein are from three sources also - maltodextrin, dextrose and fructose. The maltodextrin and dextrose quickly spike insulin levels and promote growth, while the fructose provides a more sustained energy release.

  • Creatine Monohydrate - Creatine is an excellent addition to weight gainer supplements as it significantly boosts the ability of muscle cells to expand and absorb more nutrients. This is commonly the reason for immediate weight gain with creatine - the muscles have stored much more than they previously could.

  • Glutamine - Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid within the human body and is vital for a number of reasons. For athletes, glutamine reduces muscle soreness, reduces the susceptibility to illness and improves recovery.
