    Echo Supplements on PhD Growth Factor Mass
    Growth Factor Mass is PhD Nutrition's all in one gainer supplement and the impressive formula is designed to support adding lean muscle quickly. Looking at the macronutrient profile first you can see that a serving of Growth Factor Mass provides around 56g protein to 77g carbohydrates which is in our opinion a great balance between supplying the necessary calories for growth without over-doing it on the carbohydrates. As you would expect from a premium supplement the amount of fat is minimal - only 3g per serving with trace saturates.

    The quality of the carbohydrates is just as important as the quantity and here PhD Nutrition have included a range of both fast and slow releasing carbohydrates which is perfect if having a shake before or/and after a training session. On rest days we'd recommend having a shake of Growth Factor Mass in place of a small meal/snack as part of your daily diet.

    Being an 'all in one' gainer you do of course get some extra performance boosting ingredients in Growth Factor Mass! First up you get strength and endurance boosting ingredients - a creatine blend of creatine monohydrate and creatine gluconate, combined with beta alanine. This combination has been proven many, many times to be really effective in boosting both short burst strength and the ability to continue pushing harder during your workout sets.

    Growth Factor Mass also delivers an amino acid recovery stack of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine) Taurine and L-Glycine - the leucine dose in particular is pretty huge - 2250g per serving, which will REALLY kick-start your recovery post-workout.

    Finally you also get natural testosterone support from a zinc/magnesium/vitamin B6 and avena sativa combination which rounds off the supplement nicely - you really do get a lot for your money with Growth Factor Mass! Available in 3 flavours and 2 sized tubs, this is the larger of the two and the best value option.

    PhD Growth Factor Mass - Manufacturer's Description
    Growth Factor Mass is the All-In-One mass gaining formula that is without equal. Containing 57g of a quality mass gaining protein blend, together with 76g of a 5-stage carbohydrate matrix, Growth Factor Mass contains an unparalleled combination of the most intelligent and hard working sports nutrition ingredients available. Growth Factor Mass can help you build serious muscle mass, increase explosive strength and support muscle building testosterone levels.

    • Ultra Premium protein & carbohydrate blend
    • 5g of a powerful dual Creatine blend to help aid short term explosive energy
    • 2.25g of added Leucine, an essential BCAA:
    • Powerful testosterone support from Zinc
    • 1.5g of added D-Aspartic Acid per serving
    • Beta Alanine, Arginine AKG, HMB, Taurine & BCAA's

    What Is In PhD Growth Factor Mass?
    5g of a powerful dual Creatine blend
    : It has been proven that Creatine improves physical performance in successive bursts of short term, high intensity exercise. This makes Creatine Monohydrate ideal for use by all athletes interested in power, strength and performance intensity. PhD Utilise Creatine Monohydrate and Creatine Gluconate in the powerful Growth factor Mass, dual Creatine blend.

    2.25g of added Leucine, an essential BCAA: Unlike almost every other rival brand or product, PhD Nutrition have ADDED Leucine to the existing Leucine that is naturally occurring from the multiple protein sources within Growth factor Mass. Leucine is an extremely important and widely used Branched Chain Amino Acid and is hugely popular with all serious athletes seeking serious gains in muscle mass. If you want to take advantage of all that Leucine can offer, make sure to choose a mass gainer that contains ADDED Leucine (Look on the nutritional information for this) it should make it clear that Leucine is added, not just naturally occurring.

    Powerful testosterone support from Zinc: Zinc is a fantastic mineral that has been shown to contribute to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood (a vital muscle building hormone for men) along with contributing to the normal functioning of the immune system (equally important if we are to maintain optimum health and ensure we can produce 100% results from our workouts). Zinc is also a vital inclusion in PhD Growth Factor Mass as it has been shown to contribute to normal protein synthesis. This is supremely important for all athletes. If we do not synthesize the protein we consume, we cannot progress and go on to build lean muscle..

    1.5g of added D-Aspartic Acid: An extremely popular ingredient within body building circles, D Aspartic Acid is an amino acid that is formed principally in the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and testes. It plays an important role in the production of compounds associated with libido and tissue growth.

    1.5g of the highly popular Leucine derivative HMB: HMB (Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate) is an amino acid, but derives from the breakdown of Leucine. HMB can be also found in certain foods like fish and it is also a natural component of mother’s milk. HMB has been proven to potentially delay the breakdown of muscle protein as well as promote tissue growth.

    1.5g of added Beta Alanine :A very popular ingredient within sports nutrition and within most popular pre workout sports nutrition products, Beta Alanine is a beta amino acid produced by the degradation of dihydrouracil and carnosine. Watch out for the tingling affect caused by Beta Alanine.

    1g of added Arginine AKG: A popular body building ingredient used for the muscle pump effect.

    Growth Factor Mass also contains Added BCAA’s, BioPerine, L-Glycine, Taurine , Magnesium, Vitamin B6 & Avena Sativa.

    Delicious.

    The chocolate tastes of chocolate and then there’s hints of oats as well, which I don’t mind at all. I usually take my shakes with milk and just make the macros fit. With full fat milk, there is definitely an added thickness to it, almost milkshake like but again, this could be altered depending on the amount of milk. Nevertheless, it tastes amazing.

    The profile is alright as well. Quite standard for a ‘mass gainer’. Even 2 scoops gives you a high dosage of calories, protein and carbs.

    The other ingredients, which good to see appear to be on the low side to actually have much effect. Creatine, BA, Taurine are all on the low side (2g, 1g, 1g). I wish sometimes manufacturers wouldn't bother mixing in minuscule portions of ingredients just so the profile looks better.

    Nevertheless I treat all shakes generally as either a protein or carb fix and this shake ticks all the right boxes.

    This is a great All in One product which packs a punch for all athletes/gym goers. With this shake it gives you 56g of protein & 71g of carbs per serving which is ideal for anyone looking to bulk up. This has a strong taste which is good & mixed really well. I must say I was full after my shake & was struggling to take on my next meal 4 hours later. The price can be justified by the quality of this product & again PHD have delivered.

    PHD GROWTH FACTOR MASS CHOCOLATE COOKIE.

    PHD YOUR UP NEXT.......

    TASTE: Um its a very rich sugary chocolate taste does taste of what it says it does tho. I dont know if i would buy this flavour Its drinkable but its very sweet just what some people like & some dont does taste just like the old 1 if i remember right.

    MIXABILITY: Now this mixes perfect i did have the whole serving 150g powder used ice cold water & i was very doubt full that this would mix BUT well done PHD this mixes so easy in just a hand held shaker very impressed here no lumps or any thing just dissolves so well top marks on this.

    PROFILE: Ok so im doing this on the full serving 150g we get lots of goodies in here every thing that we would want in an all in 1 shake 556cals with 56g protein from 5 STAGE PROTEIN source WPC,MPC,SOYA PROTEIN ISOLATE,HYDROLYSED WHEAT PROTEIN, & WPI its a blend & the bad news is we dont know what order or how much of each the proteins are used here i think we all know about the proteins used in this so i dont need to go in to all the details.

    Now for the carbs we also get a 5 STAGE CARB COMPLEX OATS,MALTODEXTRIN,DEXTROSE,PALATINOSE,FRUCTOSE what ive not seen before is PALATINOSE lets take a closer look at this:
    PALATINOSE™ is a pure white crystalline carbohydrate derived from the natural source of
    sucrose. It can be found in e.g. honey and sugar cane extract. PALATINOSE™ is the only
    functional carbohydrate which is fully digestible yet slowly released. In other words
    PALATINOSE™ provides glucose in a more balanced way thus providing prolonged energy. In
    addition to being low glycemic low insulinemic and toothfriendly, PALATINOSE™ burns more
    calories from fat under physical activity in comparison to other carbohydrates.

    Then we get down to all the added goodies ill go through a few:
    L LEUCINE 2250mg: Is as we all know 1 of the 3 BCAA chain our bodys can not produce these so we need to get them in our selfs i would have liked to see a little more of this tho.

    CREATINE GLUCONATE 2024mg: This is where Creatine Gluconate comes into play, because this is precisely why it is so good, because it focuses on ensuring the Creatine gets to the muscle cell, the place where it absolutely needs to be in order to have any effect on you. The clue is in Gluconate because it is fast acting carbohydrates, such as glucose which ultimately lead to the transportation of Creatine into the muscle cell. Without this, there will only be very small amounts of Creatine reaching the muscle cell. Therefore by ensuring that the Creatine is accompanied with the necessary ingredients in the form of glucose, a super fast acting carbohydrate you will enjoy significantly better strength, endurance and size gains whilst using Creatine Gluconate.

    ARGININE AKG 502mg: Arginine Alpha-ketoglutarate (also known as AAKG and arginine) is a nonessential amino acid that’s necessary when it comes to making nitric oxide in the liver. “Both AAKG and nitric oxide amplify the beneficial muscle-building effects of exercising and nutritional supplements.

    HMB 750mg: HMB is a premium grade amino acid. It is an essential muscular building block and key for your muscles post workout to aid repair and growth. Supplementation with HMB is proven to delay the breakdown of muscle protein, lower cholesterol and strengthen the body's immune system.

    This does also contain Vitamin b6 & Magnesium & also Zinc

    OVERALL: This product does pack every thing you need in the all in 1 range BUT its not the cheapest of shakes £49.99 for a 4.5k tub giving us 27 servings any 1 who fancys trying summat different then take a look at this This product its ideal for
    All athletes seeking quality muscle mass gains from an all-in-one product
    Beginners or serious athletes seeking a high protein, high carbohydrate serious mass gaining formula
    Athletes seeking the benefits of Creatine, Leucine, D-Aspartic acid, HMB and Zinc.
    Strength and power athletes seeking increased, quality calories to facilitate a serious training and recovery regime.

    'Attractive ingredients'
    Very, very good product - comes with a justified price tag.

    Although I have mentioned that this product comes with a reasonably steep price tag, it can be justified when you look at the added ingredients which come along with your lean gaining carbs/protein.
    I was given a free sample of Growth Factor from Echo, (Love the extra sample from Echo, nice customer care touch) looked at the ingredients and was mind blown (HMB, D-asparctic acid, BCAA's including leucine, zinc & creatine - just to mention a few) the texture of the shake was very positive too, very light digestion considering the content.
    I am considering purchasing this product to aid my post work outs, very 'attractive' ingredients. With 27 servings however I am deciding to buy in bulk and get savings on buying two/three tubs at once.

    5/5 for product
    4/5 for price range but JUSTIFIED.

    #Great tasting and mixes well. solid profile and good amount of calories. Mass shakes are not normally ones I would recommend, but when they taste like this...I cant help it!

    When it comes to a product like this, I always have to compare it to my benchmark favourite of Reflex's One Stop Extreme. In terms of calories, protein carbs and fat counts it's almost identical. The protein breakdown from PHD contains various Whey's, milk and soy and I really don't mind soy in an all-in-one blend as it's good to vary the digestion speeds of protein in such a substantial shake. The glutamine content is also great and on a par with Reflex after this however the PHD starts to lose ground. Creatine is under-dosed at 3g (compared to 5g) and it doesn't come remotely close to Reflex in the vitamin & mineral complex. It is however nice to see that HMB has been included alongside the Leucine (you usually just get one or low doses of both).

    Taste wise the Chocolate cookie flavour is really good. It beats the chocolate flavour from Reflex (for me), and definitely mixes a whole lot easier. This is really the only place it does beat the Reflex though as the price is also a bit higher and you get 3 less servings. Not the worst all-in-one out there, but Reflex is still king of the hill.

    My review is of the Strawberry Delight flavour.

    Packaging - Rather nice, bold writing, all the info you need is very visible and easy to read.

    Ingredients - A 5 stage carb complex and a 5 stage protein complex with added Leucine, D-Aspartic Acid, HMB, BCAA and Creatine really does deliver!

    Taste - Strawberry Delight wasn't really a 'delight' for me, a bit too sweet for my liking

    Texture - A 75g serving mixed with 250ml cold water mixed ok but was left with a very 'grainy' and 'bitty' texture, this is of course due to the added creatine IMO but had the texture of sand.

    Price - As with all 'mass gain' products you don't really get many servings per tub and I feel the price is pretty average in it's class.

    If I was on a bulk there is no doubt that this one would be 'on my list', only the taste and texture let it down slightly.

    This is an All in One Mass Gaining Formula. Chocolate Cookie Flavour. I have a 75g sample. This is Half the recommended 150g serving so you can double up on the values from the review.

    Most Gainers taste decent because they can be allowed more carbs and sugars than a straight protein product saying that its not that high in sugar in the 75g sample it has 6.15g of sugar which is perfectly acceptable IMO.

    The Protein
    The Protein content in this is 28.3 per 75g is a blend of Whey Protein Concentrate , Milk Protein Concentrate , Soya Isolate, Hydrolysed Wheat Protein and Whey Protein Isolate. These are in brackets so can be in any order I must point that out so I cant tell which is highest in value.

    Carbs
    The carbs content is 38.5 per 75g serving they are made up of 5 different carbs Oats, Maltodextrin, Dextrose, Palatinose and fructrose.

    Added Ingredients
    This is an All in One Gainer meaning it has added ingredients to take care of everything you need .
    Added ingredients are 2000mg of creatine Mono, 1012mg Creatine Gluconate , L-Leucine 1012mg , Taurine 750mg, HMB 750mg, D-Aspartic Acid750mg, Arginine AKG 502.5mg, l- glycine 345mg, Beta Alanine 750mg,Avena Sativa 97.5mg, IsoLeucine 97.5mg.
    Vits B6 Minerals Magnesium and 1.12mg of Zinc.

    Thats a decent line up of added ingredients, so in a full 150g serving you will get your full amount of creatine needed and some good additions in there .

    Taste and Mix ability
    This is Chocolate Cookie , Its lovely really tasty and tastes like it says good flavour, Mixed instant 250ml of cold water in the shaker add the Gainer, few shakes done. No problems there .

    Would I recommend it?
    Yes without doubt I think PHD have produced a good All in One that will sit well in the all in one range with some very good additions in decent amounts.
