Nutritional facts about Muscle Tech Mass Tech
1. Co-Factor Complex:
It is a reinforcement element that supports mass gaining and the repair and the gain of energy, and consists of :
- Creatine Monohydrate: This is a natural amino acid derivative found in muscles and brain.
Creatine participates in the creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which helps the muscles and fibers to act better during training. It makes it possible to delay the fatigue effect by stimulating the synthesis of the proteins.
Creatine is ideal for muscle building.
- Leucine: An essential branched chain amino acid (BCAA) that increases the resting metabolic rate for a fat-burning effect.
Leucine is essential for the regeneration and development of muscle tissue.
It helps to provide energy.
- Alanine: an amino acid that intervenes in the synthesis of proteins.
Alanine will contribute to the production of glucose directly involved during a workout.
It provides positive energy and limits muscle degradation.
- Glycine: Another important amino acid that works by helping proteins and creatine to do their job well and to be effective.
- Taurine: it is an amino acid derivative that was discovered in bull bile, hence its name. Taurine has a role in the brain as a neurotransmitter.
It has virtues to strengthen the heart muscle and promotes blood circulation (interesting for our muscles and diet).
Studies tend to prove that it is better to take taurine after training because it will promote a return to calm the body after intense training.
2. Multi-Phase Carb Blend:
Polymers of glucose, isomaltulose, oat bran, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, chia.
A complex set of carbohydrates or mixture of carbohydrates if you prefer.
These are energy-rich nutrients that allow for muscle contractions.
To make it simple, it is the preferred fuel of the muscles. They are indispensable for the making of mass.
As for our Mass-Tech, we observe a variety of carbohydrates that will be assimilated differently.
In other words, this blend will allow you to have more energy, but also to rebuild and recover after the training.
3. Multi-Phase Protein Blend:
A set of different proteins of whey and albumin with variable assimilation to feed the body continuously and avoid catabolism.
- Whey Concentrate: a protein we all know for its undeniable pure qualities.
Richer in lactose (thus in carbohydrate) and in calories than Isolate or hydrolyzed, it has a good intake of BCAA also.
- Calcium caseinate: Casein protein, produced from pasteurized milk.
To give you an idea, there is 35g of protein for one liter of milk, 80% of which is casein protein.
The advantage is that it assimilates slowly and has a longer action, releasing the amino acids over a wider period to preserve the muscles. So a very interesting anti-catabolic effect. Coupled with the Whey, it is ideal to improve the construction of muscles.
- Egg albumin: Egg protein has been a benchmark for athletes, even though whey has replaced it. Yet, its amino acid profile is excellent, almost perfect.
Egg white protein quickly releases amino acids and does not contain lipid or cholesterol.
- Whey Isolate: A protein that has undergone additional filtration processes to make it more concentrate and to give it certain qualities to gain mass and to be digested better and faster, as the isolate contains less lactose.
- Hydrolysed Whey Isolate: Whey contains the highest protein concentration because it has been purified and purified from lipids to keep only the essential protein particles needed for the muscles.
4. Omega Blend:
(sunflower oil, solid corn syrup, sodium caseinate, mono- and diglycerides, dipotassium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, soy lecithin, Tocopherols, medium chain triglycerides).
A set of omegas to protect the joints, with an anti-inflammatory action to reduce pain.
Omegas also have an anabolic action because they prevent muscle catabolism and reduce its effect.
Omegas will activate an enzyme called mTOR that acts on the number of cells.
To make it simple: the more active this enzyme is, the more number of cells increases and therefore the size of the muscles increases.
For bodybuilders, omega supplements are particularly effective in mass gain.
Here is the report of a study (in Spanish) that attempted to determine the development of muscle strength following an exercise program accompanied by supplementation with W-3 lipids or medium chain triglycerides.

5. Digestion Enzymes:
Papain and amylase:
These enzymes will improve the assimilation of complex molecules by the body: the proteins will be better digested, and thus more quickly made available to the muscles.
How to take MuscleTech MASS-TECH
MuscleTech recommends taking 1 serving of MuscleTech MASS-TECH (2 pods and a half, or 255g) with 250ml of water or half-skimmed milk just after training or in the morning when waking up on rest days.
You can also take two doses per day by dividing the daily dose.
Different flavors are available: chocolate, Cookies and Cream and Milk Chocolate.
Overall, MuscleTech has a good reputation, and many users are satisfied with the add-ons that have been put in this product.
Regarding Mass-Tech, the user reviews are positive, many customers are happy with the mass gain.
On the other hand, there are many negative comments about the miscibility, and it creates lumps when it is put in the shaker bottle.
MuscleTech MASS-TECH is a mass gainer whose formula is popular and effective.
A ratio between proteins and carbohydrates rather favorable to the gain of mass, as long as you maintain your workout!
Although it is a little expensive, I think this supplement is suitable for all, beginners as well as professionals.
