Olimp Profi Mass is the top-quality nutrient supporting the increase in lean muscle mass. It is a unique composition of proteins with different absorption rates and carbohydrates with a balanced glycaemic index. The advanced formula was enriched with medium chain fatty acids (MCT), amino acids and vitamins. A product with such a multifaceted composition aims to maximize the promotion of anabolic reactions, in this way providing immediate regeneration after training.
In contrast to classic gainers, in which carbohydrates of dubious quality predominate, Profi Mass is a bulk preparation, which means that it contains an almost even protein-carbohydrates ratio. It is an ideal solution for both ectomorphic users who have problems with providing themselves the right number of calories, as well as for other training enthusiasts who want to take care of proper regeneration.
The protein formula contained in the supplement consists of the following protein fractions:
Whey protein hydrolyzate (WPH) - it is a type of whey protein with extremely fast absorption and the highest possible biological value. It is obtained by pre-hydrolysing milk proteins. In this way, macromolecular proteins are broken down into shorter peptide chains, which are immediately released into the body after consumption in the form of amino acids. In addition, research has revealed an increased release of insulin into the blood after administration of this type of protein, which results in even better muscle protein synthesis and tissue nutrition.
Whey protein isolate (WPI) - a rapidly absorbed type of whey protein obtained through the patented cross-flow microfiltration CFM®, with an exemplary biological value (BV = 159). Uptake of amino acids starts almost immediately after the isolate is consumed, and lasts for about an hour.
Whey protein concentrate (WPC) - this type of proteins is featured by good bioavailability and high biological value (BV = 104). It is the most popular type of protein supplement used by athletes. Thanks to its absorption period, which is slightly longer than that of the isolate and hydrolysate (nearly 2 hours), it fits perfectly into the product formula.
Micellar casein - this is a type of slowly digestible protein obtained from milk. In contrary to the aforementioned protein types, casein releases the amino acids into the bloodstream only about 1.5 hours after consumption. In addition, this process lasts for almost 5 hours! In this way, it prevents sudden, unfavourable drops in the level of amino acids in the blood and ensures the sense of satiety. In addition, it naturally thickens the conditioner, giving it the consistency of a real shake.
The presented blend, supplemented with L-glutamine and taurine, ensures constant availability of proteins with an excellent aminogram. In this way you can achieve a positive nitrogen balance, which allows the body to rebuild muscle tissue. Studies have shown that proteins mixed in these proportions most strongly promote muscle growth after training.
Low-GLC™ carbohydrate mix is another equally important component of the nutrient. Its function is to maintain proper glucose supply to the blood for a long time after consumption. In this way, the body is provided with an energetic substrate, necessary both for performing current activities and for the recovery of damaged tissues.
The mixture contains:
Waxy-Maize - it is waxy corn starch with a low glycemic index and predominant content of amylopectins. These are long-chain polysaccharides that consist of many glucose molecules. They guarantee a long-term release of simple sugars from the mixture into the blood, up to 4 hours after consumption.
Isomaltulose - it is a disaccharide with a structure similar to sucrose, but significantly different from it, due to the difference in the binding between glucose and fructose. The glycaemic index of isomaltulose is about 30, which means that after ingestion, it raises blood glucose much slower than standard sugar.
To cover the body's energy needs immediately after training, the composition of the nutrients was supplemented with the following ingredients that quickly increase the blood sugar level:
Maltodextrins - multi-sugar compounds obtained from starch, which immediately increase the concentration of glucose in the blood, and then keep it at a fairly stable level. When consumed after training, they immediately restore the depleted muscle glycogen stores.
Dextrose and fructose - simple sugars with a high glycaemic index, causing a rapidly increasing insulin secretion, which, besides providing a large amount of glucose to cells, promotes anabolic reactions in the body. The use of dextrose and fructose after workout sessions along with protein preparations promotes rapid regeneration processes of muscle tissue damaged by training. Fructose, due to its small size, does not need insulin to enter the cells. Therefore it works exceptionally well as a boost of energy, before insulin is released.
As a supplementary energy substrate, medium chain fatty acids (MCT) have been used in the preparation, which are a rich source of energy without straining the digestive system. These fats provide a longer feeling of satiety and facilitate the absorption of many nutrients.
In addition, the nutrient was supplemented with a complex of vitamins that take part in a series of biochemical reactions in the body. They enable better digestion of nutrient ingredients and have an antioxidant effect, improving significantly post-workout regeneration.
In summary, Olimp Profi Mass is a product with advanced composition, which provides the body with ideal conditions for regeneration necessary after a hard workout. Instant product formula guarantees quick and even dissolution of the nutrient and is an easy way to increase the caloric value of one’s diet, without worrying about the quality of ingredients or accumulation of fatty tissue.
Profi Mass nutrient is especially attractive for people who have problems with providing the right amount of calories in their diet. To ensure a positive caloric balance, it is worth using this product between meals. The best time for supplement consumption will be the post-workout period, due to the content of beneficial ingredients with immediate effect on the level of glucose and amino acids in the blood.
The nutrient should be used as part of diet supplementation, therefore dosage should be adjusted individually. It is a product with high nutritional density, so be careful when consuming larger portions at once, or consider introducing them gradually.
In order to improve the development of strength and muscle mass, it is worth using the product together with a creatine preparation.

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight.

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
Saturated fatty acids are a group of fatty acid having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. Saturated fatty acids are commonly known as bad fat, which might adversely affect the cholesterol level, in particular by the action of acids: lauric, myristic, palmitic, and therefore their consumption should be reduced. Research carried out in this matter do not confirm entirely the prevailing beliefs.
Dietary fibre is a mixture of undigested substances and not absorbed by the human body. Due to the properties divided into: insoluble fibre (e.g. cellulose [polysaccharide] found in fruits and vegetables), partially soluble fibre (including hemicellulose occurring with cereal grains and soluble fibre (including pectin, gums, mucilages [polysaccharides]). Dietary fibre affects the digestive system and gastrointestinal system regulating its operation. By filling the stomach (satiety) reduces appetite, lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and consequently can support the weight loss process and maintain a slim body. It also affects blood glucose levels and cleansing the body of toxins. Available in powder formulations (capsules, and powders), mainly containing the soluble fraction (pectin, gums and mucilages) diet and meal replacements.
Dosage: 10-20 grams per day, before or during meals with some water.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Taurine – non-protein amino acid containing sulphur, which is synthesized in the body from methionine and cysteine, present in sufficient amount in human or animal body (in the brain, heart and skeletal), although in some cases must be supplemented. Significantly affects the calcium content in the cells and stabilizes the water and electrolyte balance and maintains acid-base balance. Takes part in the synthesis of bile acids. In the body acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. It is an insulin-mimetic improving insulin metabolism, responsible for transport of nutrients (such as amino acids, glucose, creatine) to the cells and muscle tissue. These properties determine that it is a valued mono-preparation supplement and valuable addition to creatine and amino acid supplements, recommended for psycho-pchysically active people and athletes and other competitive sportsmen in pre- and post-workout periods.
Dosage: 3 grams per day.
L-glutamine - amino acid building endogenous proteins, glutamic acid amide. In the human body it is responsible for the synthesis of proteins, acid-base balance and removing ammonia outside of the organism. With the shortage of energy taken from the muscle tissue, glutamine with alanine participate in the process of gluconeogenesis, and participate in the production of glucose substrate. L-glutamine has a direct impact on the proper functioning of the digestive system and immunity of the organism. Participates in the synthesis of one of the most powerful antioxidant - glutathione. It has anti-catabolic potential. It is found naturally in foods of animal and vegetable origin and high protein supplements. Used as mono-preparation or multi-component amino-acid supplements and supplements enhancing biological recovery after exercises, often in combination with BCAA.
Dosage: 5-20 g per day (portioned during the day, and after training and waking up). The minimum dose used in supplementation is 2-15g per 1 serving.
MCT (medium chain fatty acids) are a group of fatty acids called. the average carbon chain length, containing 6 - 12 carbon atoms. For MCT acids include: caproic (containing 6 carbon atoms - C6), heptanoic (C7), caprylic acid (C8), pelargonic acid (C9), capric (C10) and lauric (C12). In contrast to the long-chain acids digested by pancreatic lipase and absorbed through the portal vein to the liver transferred in the form of chylomicrons, reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. MCT is a natural source of coconut fat, less milk fat. Thanks to the properties of digestifs are a quick source of renewable energy (have the thermogenic potential). Antibacterial potency permits the use of clinical treatment (including liver diseases, malnutrition, disorders of metabolic processes). They are recommended in sports supplementation of different sports programs to reduce weight and build muscle mass, as a calorie complement of a diet and element of enhancing physical exercise capacity support element and wellness after exercise.
