So do weight gain pills really work? If you want my honest review, take a look at the picture below and you’ll find the answer.

weight gain pillsIf you are a hardgainer, someone that doesn’t gain weight very easily, chances are you have tried more than one product to get the job done. There are weight gain pills, weight gain powders that literally fill your belly with sugar and fat filled calories, diet plans that suggest gorging yourself with just about anything and everything you can get your hands on, and expensive “testosterone boosters” that claim to throw your body into an anabolic state and prime you for building muscle, and the list goes on.

As you’ve probably figured out by now, it’s all a load of B.S. There isn’t just a simple weight gain pill that you can pop in your mouth to build muscle day after day. The truth is, you can’t believe everything you read in the magazines… or see on TV… or stumble across when you’re surfing the Internet.

As of late, many weight gain pills have come into the marketplace, each touting to be the hardgainer’s answer to building muscle and gaining weight. “All you have to do is take one simple pill per day and all your trouble’s will be over.”

[adrotate group=”1″]You see, in many cases (the research has been done, but check for yourself) weight gain pills are nothing more than multi-vitamins! I know, it was a shocker to me too.

You see, legally, companies can get away with repackaging the same ingredients you find in your daily once daily vitamin and calling it a “weight gain pill” because, well, a daily vitamin can technically help you gain weight.

Now, don’t expect these pills to be anywhere near as effective as creatine, but by including a daily multivitamin in your diet, your body can benefit on many levels including building more muscle. The reason is simple.

Multi-vitamins contain what is called micronutrients. There are the vitamins and minerals your body needs at the cellular level to operate at optimum levels. If you are deficient in certain micronutrients, simply put, your body won’t operate as effectively as it should.

This can effective of a number of bodily functions, one being repairing and building muscle tissue. If you are working out heavily, then popping a once daily vitamin pill can help supplement your diet with what you need to make the gains you need.

In addition to that, by including additional HIGH QUALITY calories in your diet, you can helps increase those gains even further. After all, it is additional calories that are needed to gain weight, be it muscle or fat. No matter what the MAGIC PILL bottle says, a combination of exercise, high quality foods, and a multi-vitamin can be an effective combination to help any hardgainer start to pack on some muscle mass.

So, the next time you spot a weight gain pill and it is telling you it is the answer to the muscle growth you have been looking for, grab a bottle of multi-vitamins and start to compare the ingredients.

If you notice things in the weight gain pill that are NOT in the multi, do your research on those ingredients as well. These weight gain pills are nothing more than over-priced multivitamins and misleading marketing. Save your money and opt for a regular multi-vitamin that will provide the same, if not BETTER results for your health.
