Updated on June 5, 2012

Check this out- This is an example of totally original no fake weight gain formula

Lately, there are a lot of fake protein powders and weight gainers selling around in the nutritional supplements market. Beware of following fake powders:

  • Optimum Nutrition (Serious Mass) - Fake 5, 6 and 12 lbs BAG
  • Optimum Nutrition (100% Whey) - Fake 5 lbs and 25 lbs BAG
  • Dymatize Nutrition (ISO-100) - Fake 5 lbs
  • Dymatize Nutrition (Elite Whey) - Fake 5 lbs
  • GNC (100% Whey) - Fake 3 & 5 lbs
  • Natures Best (ISOPURE 3 lbs) - Fake 3 & 5 lbs
  • SI03 Nectar (Fake 5 lbs)
  • Universal Nutrition (Ultra Whey Pro) - Fake 2 & 5 lbs

Don't risk your health and life using fake protein powders and fake weight gaining supplements. These powders and supplements are loaded with calcium carbonate, dexona fillers and other dangerous anabolics in prohibitive amounts, which can easily put you on the bed in no time.

How to spot a fake protein powder?

  • Poor quality jar
  • Poor quality text on the label
  • Heavy density of the power inside (it is nothing but dextrose plus soy plus some cheap steroid.
  • Poor quality graphics on the label
  • If your gym coach tries way to hard to sell you something, especially open secret powders, then you should be aware that these could be fakes.

Fake Superpump, original Superpump 250

If you are a routine weightlifter or bodybuilder, then you will find two types of superpumps available at supplement stores. One is superpump and the other is superpump 250. Former is marketed by a small time company in Germany and latter is manufactured by Gaspari Nutrition worldwide. You will not find any great reviews on superpump on the Internet but you can find loads of superpump 250 reviews on net as it is recommended by many experienced bodybuilders and weight trainers around the world.

Buy original weight gainers

If you want to increase weight, then buying a branded no fake weight gainer is the best option. If you consume fake powders, the fat percentage in your body will get very high and it would be difficult to get rid of it later. All you will get from it is a big tummy because of accumulation of fat. If you take an original supplement, all what you gain will be muscle and not fat. Of course you don’t need fat. You train for muscles. Aren't you?

Some of the best weight gainers are Optimum Pro Complex Gainer, BSN'S True Weight Gainer, Animal M-STAK, and Optimum Serious Mass.

Least but not last, weight gainers are good but you should buy excellent quality ones. If you buy weight gainers like muscle juice, you will not get what you have paid for. Muscle juice can be substituted with oatmeal and dextrose giving out same results but a lot cheaper. Quality weight gainers like ON Pro Complex and BSN True Mass are quite expensive but give out good results. Just never forget to keep yourself aware of fake weight gainers and protein powders.

      I have already used Ultimate Nutrition Prostar Whey Isolate before and currently I am using Dymatize Elite Whey Isolate. I really want to know is there some test through which I can check the genuineness of the product I am using such as mixability issues,flame test,odour or taste test etc.

      This is a big concern and any information regarding this will be really appreciable.

      I would like to share one very important news that in India, not a single supplement product is original. Every product is duplicate though if you are buying it from authorized store also. All national level distributers are selling mixed supplements in Indian Market. I did an analysis and came to this conclusion. So be aware and don't play with your health.

      Example : Difference between Whey protien bought from Indian and outside India are:

      1. Original product contain scoop on which word "Dymatize" is embossed where as duplicate will have simple scoop.

      2. Color and smell of same flavour will definetly will be different.

      Check for the Packaging, dates and always buy from an Authorized dealer in India and not from the gray market like which are official retailers.

      I have been fooled twi times, so now I don't take any chances.

      Dear Sir,

      Well, i have the questions as below.

      1} The product i haver purchased is the ISO PURE, it was sealed packed only {plastic seal}, but when i opened it i was surprised to see that it contains one plain simple pp bag, with the powder inside, & one simple rubber band, just wrapped around the face of the bag!!, is this the normal packing standards of the made in canada product?

      2} i have checked the marking, they are written as DUTCH CHOCOLATE, 7.5 LBS, MADE IN CANADA, IPL, 1-800-463-IPL 5, 62330 B, & on the base bottom is marked in black sign as MAN-122010.

      3} I also wondered when the powder does not dissolve in the water as mentioned on the container!!!!!, i clearly remember that before one year i had purchased GEERN APPLE, & it was dissolving completely in the water, what has happened now?, & when it is mentioned on the container, it should be!!!

      Please educate me is this ok, or i have been tricked?

      Hello friend, any supplement coming very cheap should be checked before buying and consuming as it could be a filler or something fake. Go through the tips for checking this that are mentioned in the article above.

      Brother, in India there are several blackmarketers who are making fool of people by aduterating bodybuilding supplements. This is a very serious concern and everyone need to be alert and aware and this is the reason why I published this hub.

      By the way, I am glad about your successful use of supplements such as whey and creatine.

      Thanks for the information. I take whey protien everyday, and have for a zillion years. I've been using "Body Fortress" for about the last six months, and I do a creatin run twice a year.

      I knew that not all whey was created equal, but I didn't know some of it was actually bad for you.
