Overall great product. It's not super high-calorie as far as gainers go, but good protein/carb content, and this is by far the best product I've tried in terms of recovery. I also like the added creatine during bulking phases. The only reason I rate this 8/10 instead of 10 is that both flavors I've tried have been way too sweet for my taste. Mixed with milk they are far too rich, and even with water they're more of a plug-and-chug kinda protein. As much as I like the results I see with cyto gainer, the flavor nearly kills it for me. The fact that I've ordered cyto more than once is a testament to how well the product works.

First off the taste even in water is amazing best protein I've ever tasted by far, the cookies n cream is just simply amazing. Also compared to other mass gainers this is a lot cheaper per serving ! Great taste and is helping me put on some weight !

I used to make my own shakes with protein powder, milk, peanut butter and what ever else I had laying around, but those would always make me feel sick, so I decided to try this. The taste is good and I like how they added creatine to it

So I went from using regular whey protein after each workout to Cytosport Gainer a couple weeks ago, and so far I've seen a slight increase in mass and my bench press has went up, which is great! I can tell the product works, and the price isn't too bad either for the amount you get. In each scoop you get carbs, calories, a good protein blend, creatine, and plenty of BCAA's, making this product ideal for gaining mass, yet cheaper than most other mass gainers. I found the taste to be pretty good. I actually look forward to mixing up two scoops after a good workout just because the taste is so good. Its almost like a post workout dessert. Overall great product and I can say that because I've noticed slight results since I started to use this product. You can't go wrong with it.

One of the best weightgainers I have used out there, this was also the first supplement I have ever used since I started lifting. It has gotten me from a skinny 120 pounds to 145 pounds and still going! I have also compared this with other weight gainers out there and I can honestly say that this weight gainer has the most value in terms of the amount of protein per £ and considering it also has creatine in it. What I love most about this weightgainer though is that it tastes absolutely amazing and is too easy to mix with water or even milk. Unlike most other weight gainers out there which gets all lumpy and disgusting... overall I would recommend this to anyone who is trying to gain a few pounds of lean mass!

I just tried it and I was pretty disappointed from the results, taste was awesome though it was like having a desert but I was expecting more from it. I think the Carbs ration is too low. I think for the price it should be a little more effective. I did like the fact though that the scoops weren't too big. thanks

This was my first weight gainer product, and while it's not as dense calorie wise as other weight gainer powders (4 entire scoops for 560 calories), it was great for avoiding going overboard in the first few weeks. Great product! The 5lb tubs last me about 2.5-3 months, and the additional glutamine and creatine is a welcome bonus. My recovery has improved dramatically since and I've noticed better gains in lean mass without any signs at all of the dreaded weight gainer induced belly. The flavours I tried are pretty good; vanilla is standard-fare and Cookies n' creme is a bit too sweet when mixed with milk, but a bit of water into the mix made for much better consistency and taste.

I bought this protein powder 4 months ago to try to gain more mass as I only weighed 120 lbs. After I finished this product in 2weeks, I gained 4 pounds which is what I gained using the Wheybolic 60 protein from GNC, This didn't really ggive me the gains I wanted, not because of the protein itself but because it totaly destroyed my appetite. I ate this for breakfast in about 8fl oz of milk and wasn't hungry until 5 hours later like noon. This does not help when trying to gain weight Other than that it tasted great and blended easy.

If you're looking for a boost to maximize lean muslcle-mass gains during your next bulk, this gainer, if used properly, will deliver results you will notice in the mirror. I've used several other gainers, and Cytogainer is my favorite. If consumed regularly throught the day, pre and post workout, it will energize you to lift more. Once you've torn your muscles to pieces, you'll feel it quickly refueling them, making you eager to return to the gym the next day. The taste is acceptable, and improved with milk. I've tried chocolate, cookies and cream, and banana, which was the best of the three. I'm excited to boost my bulk with a round of Cytogainer (probably 3weeks), and plan to document the before/after on my body space.

A decent product, used as my post-workout and have ordered another tub for consistency. Been using it for a month or so and have gained 5kg and the taste is drinkable. A little sugary but mixes well, will still search around for a better product for next bulk however.

I used to use the Cookies and Creme flavor of this product and thought it was great, but I like the Vanilla much better. This product is phenomenal. I've tried other gainers and I keep coming back to this one. It's the only one I've tried that doesn't blow my fat percentage out of whack. It blends well enough it can even be spoon mixed in a glass. I usually use the blender, however and a pulse or two and it's mixed. A great feature is that I can simply rinse my blender under hot water - no scrubbing. The best part about this stuff is that it's the real deal - it works, bottom line. It does what it is supposed to do; puts on mass without the fat. I have a girlfriend that is lactose intolerant and two scoops in skim milk doesn't bother her.

Helped me gain 10 lbs of lean muscle since my metabolism is so fast. It tastes better the ON Whey protein and mixes better!

I have been taking this on and off for the last 3 months and I've gained around 15lbs. I love the taste of the cookies and cream and it's such a deal if you only use two scoops because it'll last you longer than any other weight gainer and it has 11,000+ grams of glutamine so there's no longer any need to take glutamine and you get 1.5grams of creatine so you're also saving money on creatine. Highly recommend this product!
