      Russian Bear is my first and number #1 pick for weight gainer. My favorite flavor is the chocolate. The vanialla is too strong and too thick for the flavor. Anyone who's looking for rapid weight gains, look no more. I used to have a hard time putting on weight for a long time but, since I used this product I haven't had anymore problems with gaining anymore. Before taking this product, you will gain rapid weight all over your body. Make sure to exerise when taking this product.

      I bought this because I do weight training, but don't ever have a large enough appetite to consume the correct amount of calories. So, the protein content combined with the weight gaining properties looked very appealing. The only problem is, it is un-drinkable. It tastes so so very bad, I simply can not drink it. I know that taste is subjective, and I have tried many brands, some of which taste good, and some of which are merely tolerable. The Russian Bear 5000 is not even tolerable. A glass of whiskey goes down smoother than this. It might be great stuff, I don't know. As far as I can tell, it's not worth it to find out.

      Comments about Vitol Products Russian Bear 5000 Gainer Choc - 4 Pound Powder:

      If you follow the mixing directions you'll be fine. I recommend the Ice Cream Vanilla over the Chocolate becuase the chocolate doesn't mix as well. I have to shake it up before each serving. the chocolate tends to stain cups and sinks.

      This gainer has a bit higher than average sugar content per serving than other gainers on the market.

      Best value per serving than other gainers on the market. (without putting in the cost of a gallon of milk since some will just use water).

      The ice cream vanilla tastes like milk and coconut water to me but it mixes 100 times better than the chocolate.

      I'm a hard gainer and was between 150-155 lbs before Russian Bear 5000. After my 4th bottle of Russian Bear 5000, I'm 156-161 lbs. As a VS health enthusiast, I can honestly say that despite it's 90's label, it's one of the top sellers because it works. btw, I like turtles.

          This product for me was very hard to take because of it's consistency. If you mix it like you are supposed to it becomes like a thick syrup and for me drinking it all day was tough. at the time I didn't weigh myself so for that aspect I can not comment. If you are interested in a weight gainer I would say give it a shot because it has a lot of calories but be prepared to drink it as you would for any other weight gainer.

              I've been stacking this with cellmass 2.0 and 100% gold standard whey protein. I'm generally a smaller guy so this is why I used this product. I've gained 15 pounds in the last month and am just finishing up my third bottle. I'm in a bulking phase but I continue to put on lean muscle while gaining no fat. I take 2 scoops before bed mixed with milk, a bit of olive oil, flax seed, and oats.

                    I started taking the bear about 2 months ago trying to put on some muscle and weight since I've always been really skinny and thin since I was a kid. When I started working out before taking this, I was 5'9 and 146 lbs. 2 months after using this and going through the whole bottle, I gained 8 lbs. and saw noticeable results on the outside. One thing that makes this better (in my opinion) than the rest is that it contains a hefty amount of protein and 0 (yes, that's right; ZERO) fat so you get what is most important. It is easy to mix, tastes great, and delivers good results! As long as you do your part on lifting weights with proper technique, I can guarantee that anybody will see the results other reviewers have. I know I did.

                    Already ordering my 2nd bottle to continue the transformation.

                        This stuff tastes so good! I'd say its as good as chocolate milk. The instructions only tell you to mix 5 scoops per gallon of milk so I broke it down to about just under a scoop per 20oz of whole milk (20oz was the top line of my blender bottle). I had 3 of these a day and then after 3 bottles of this I figured I'd try a different one. I'm switching back. Nothing tastes anywhere near as good.

                                      I mix one scoop of Russian Bear with 4oz of water and 4oz of milk and enjoy it about 30-60 min before bed on days where I do strength training work outs. It helps put me right to sleep and I noticed I gained size and strength within two weeks of use. I would recommend this to people who are looking to improve their max on bench/ squats and improve muscle size. If your looking to lose weight DO NOT USE THIS! As for the taste, it is AMAZING! Don't be fooled by the smell when you first open it. Once you taste this shake you will want more. Its very convenient, blender is not needed, a twenty second spoon blend will work 100%.

                                              Russian Bear is my first and number #1 pick for weight gainer. My favorite flavor is the chocolate. The vanialla is too strong and too thick for the flavor. Anyone who's looking for rapid weight gains, look no more. I used to have a hard time putting on weight for a long time but, since I used this product I haven't had anymore problems with gaining anymore. Before taking this product, you will gain rapid weight all over your body. Make sure to exerise when taking this product.

                                              it says 3 servings per container??? is this correct or is this a typo?
                                              A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Aug 31, 2013
                                              Best Answer: The directions say to mix 5 scoops with one gallon of milk and drink throughout the day. So they figure you can do this 3 times.

                                              I wouldn't go by that. I would just drink two regular size shakes a day if working out consistently. Either one scoop or 1.5 scoop in the morning and then another after a workout or for bed. When I was working out 2-3 times a week and doing my two shakes a day, I gained about 13 lbs in less than two months and I noticed a change. Before working out I used this as a meal replacement on busy days and it was helpful. You figure 1.5 scoop gives you approx 750 calories and plenty of protein for one serving (maybe still more than you need). One jar lasted me several weeks.

                                              I was forced to stop working out mainly lifting weights due to a medical condition. I recently had surgery. I did lose a lot of my muscle, tone, and about 12 lbs because of surgery. I plan to order a jar to help between meals. Will prob do a 1 scoop shake a day to help get more calories in until I'm able to touch more than 10lb weights.

                                              Hope this helps. Another good product I've tried and friend recommend is optimum nutrition gainer

                                              Best Answer: First read the ingredients make sure they fit your goals and needs. Having said that...russian is backed by some great science and Russian bodybuilding experience how ever it should be raken pretty as directed to get THE results (use ofextra ingredients to help you grow) but I personally like it for the high amounts of amino acids and I use a different gainer as my staple. Good protein is not hard to find however a good complex carb based gainer is hard to come by and for this I would recommend Up Your Mass by mhp. I have never used mass tech and probably wont.

                                              I am confused on how to mix and drink the product, it says in the directions that one serving is 2600,, how many scoops and you can spread it out through 1-4 days, I want to know exctly how many calories i am taking in, and most importantly mix it right so i can see results. I am not understanding the break down here?

                                              Best Answer: The serving size if I remember correctly is 5 scoops? It says the serving scoop amount on the back of the packaging. The recommend you mix the serving in about a gallon of liquid (milk, water). If the serving is 5 scoops the nutritional facts will match that amount if you drink the full serving in one day. If you mix it and drink it over the course of say 4-5 days just divide the nutrition by that much. Say its 500g of protein for a serving and you drink it over 5 days that would be about 100g per day. So simply mix the entire serving and you can just divide up the amounts by the time it takes you to drink it. I use to mix an entire serving (4 or 5? scoops) with a gallon of lowfat milk. I would drink half one day and the other half the enxt so I could just divide the totals by 2. Instead of say 400g protein and 5000 calories I was getting 200g of Protein and 2000 calories.

                                              Hope that helps!

                                              Has anyone noticed any mood changes while using this product. I noticed it doesn't have creatine that I saw (I may have missed it), but it does have deer antler powder and some other anabolic stuff?? What does that do to the overall attitude of a person? Finally, I'm not at all worried about if it will work or not. I know it will, but does it at least taste decent or good??

                                              Best Answer: When I first used it, my stomach didn't like it too much but I think that was because the amount I consumed plus whole milk which I don't use anymore either. I do a medium shake once or twice a day. Honestly I was worried about some of the ingredients and still wonder how much sugar is in it. However a lot of other products make me have jitters and headaches, this doesn't. The only other side effect I can think of is it makes me want to work out! I can't say for sure if any ingredient is causing this but I do feel focused and ready to push myself hard. Great results so far. I had to stop working out for medical reasons for two years, now im back and getting my weight/muscle back to where I was.

                                              As far as I know it has no creatine. As for taste, I remember it tasting better a few years ago. Maybe I have to get use to it again. Overall though the taste is better than most.

                                              Does this product (the one you have in stock) still have sikadeer antler powder as one of its ingredients?
