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.

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.
