Nutrigain Plus

Weight loss aids are a dime-a-dozen in the world of supplements, but what about products that are designed to achieve the opposite effect? Weight gain supplements may be less common but are no less useful to customers that need them, helping thinner athletes to bulk up after working out in the gym or allowing underweight customers to gain weight without having to rely on a fatty or calorific diet.

Below we take an in-depth look into Nutrigain Plus, to see whether this traditional, Ayurveda-based weight gain supplement can help customers to bulk up in a healthy way.

Nutrigain Plus Pros

  • Extremely cheap supplement
  • Product information and ingredient quantities clearly listed

Nutrigain Plus Cons

  • Most indicators suggest that the product is unlikely to have any effect at all
  • Customer reviews are generally highly negative
  • No money back guarantee or returns policy

Nutrigain Plus


What You Need To Know About Nutrigain Plus

Nutrigain Plus is a weight gain supplement that features ingredients commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine (the traditional medical system used by sages in India). The product comes in capsule and powder form, each of which uses a slightly altered ingredients list and balance. Like many other products from India, it is also remarkably cheap, typically retailing for as little as $7 for a month’s supply in its home country.

Nutrigain Plus is produced and sold by Ayurwin, a supplement manufacturer from India. Ayurwin mainly specialise in weight gain/loss drinks, capsules, and green tea products, and seem to have a relatively limited line-up of products. Although currently largely limited to the Indian market, Ayurwin claim to be aiming for international customers in the near future, meaning that American and European readers may expect to see products like these in local health stores before long.

What Are The Side Effects Of Nutrigain Plus?

Nutrigain Plus should cause very few side effects (if any). Tribulus terrestris can sometimes cause sleeplessness and has been linked with male prostate issues. The use of ginger will cause no issues for virtually all customers, but has sometimes been linked with heartburn, diarrhoea, and mild stomach discomfort.

Readers should remember that few of the herbs used in Ayurveda medicine have been investigated in strictly controlled scientific studies. Because of this, some may carry side effects or risks that we are formally unaware of.

How Much Does Nutrigain Plus Cost?

Customers looking to buy from India directly can enjoy the knock-down prices normally associated with Indian retailers. A 60-capsule pack of Nutrigain Plus costs as little as 460 rupees (just over $7) from, 472 rupees on Medplus Mart and 497 rupees on the official Ayurwin website. The 500g tub of powder costs a little more from most retailers; Amazon has it listed for 794 rupees (with 50g of powder chucked in extra for free) and the Ayurwin website sells it for 895 rupees. In-store charges are likely lower.

International buyers looking to avoid huge international shipping costs, or looking to buy in their own currency can find Nutrigain Plus (and other Indian products) on specialised websites like Emporium on Net, Online USA Mart or USA Herbal Products. A 60-capsule pack from these websites costs round $24-$25.

Our Verdict On Nutrigain Plus

Ayurveda medicine is extremely interesting, but suffers from the major drawback that very few of its most treasured herbal remedies have ever been investigated in strict scientific trials. From our perspective, this means that very few of the claims made about products like these are verifiable or trustworthy.

We would be willing to forgive Nutrigain Plus on this point (after all, it is not the fault of the manufacturer that traditional Indian medicine is ignored by Western universities). However, almost all evidence that we DO have on this product shows that it is absolutely useless. Customer reviews seem to hate it, with dozens of reviewers feeling they are owed a refund on their highly ineffective purchase. Many of the ingredients included in the mix are not even thought by traditional practitioners to help consumers gain weight or bulk up, suggesting that this mix has been lazily slapped together by a company that doesn’t even understand their own subject matter.

Customers disappointed with their purchase also seem to be unable to return it to the manufacturer at all, as Ayurwin fail to detail any kind of returns policy or money back guarantee.

Nutrigain Plus may be affordable, but it seems to offer no discernible benefits to customers. Save your rupees and stick to more established brands with a better track record in terms of customer satisfaction.

We would not recommend Nutrigain Plus to our readers.

Nutrigain Plus Review

Nutrigain Plus is a weight-gain formula that is mainly sold in its home country in India. Sold in capsule and powder form, Nutrigain Plus can be used to help athletes bulk up and gain muscle in the gym, or by others who are simply looking to put on weight.

Nutrigain Plus Facts

  • Manufactured by Ayurwin
  • Contains 60 capsules (or 500g of powder) per pack
  • Weight-gain product

This product is manufactured by Ayurwin, an Indian company that specialises in weight gain pand weight loss supplements and shakes. The company reports starting its “ginormous” journey in 2007, and appears to have grown rapidly since then. Although currently focused only on the Indian market, plans are in motion to make Ayurwin’s products available to buy internationally. Ayurwin’s contact details are available to view on their official website.

How to Take Nutrigain Plus

The directions for use for the capsule pack are as follows:

  • Take 1 capsule in the morning and 1 in the evening after half an hour has passed after eating food.

The directions for use for the powder pack are as follows:

  • Add 25g (2 heaped scoops) of Nutrigain+ powder to 50ml of warm milk (if milk is not suitable you can use water). Stir until the mix becomes a paste without any lumps, add another 150ml of warm milk and stir homogenously. Add sugar if required to taste. Take 25g of powder in 200 ml of milk/water after breakfast in the morning and after dinner in the evening.

Nutrigain Plus Concerns:

  • Product has very poor customer reviews
  • No money back guarantee or returns policy of any kind
  • Difficult or expensive for American or European customers to buy

What Does Nutrigain Plus Claim To Do?

Nutrigain Plus is first and foremost a weight-gain powder, to be used by athletes looking to bulk up or by underweight customers seeking a less “weak and unfit” frame. Certain ingredients found within the mix are said to increase appetite, helping customers to consume food more readily, and other ingredients are said to work on the body’s metabolism and digestive system, helping customers to absorb energy more fully from the food they already consume.

Does Nutrigain Plus Work?

Nutrigain Plus is an ayurvedic herbal mix – this means that all of its ingredients are used in traditional Indian medicine. Not many of these herbs have been investigated in strict scientific texts, making it hard to confirm how well they work.

In any case, this particular ingredient mix is downright bizarre. Most of these ingredients have never been linked with weight gain, and plenty of them (including ashwagandha, amalaki, pippali, and maricha) have actually been linked with weight loss! Not one ingredient found in Nutrigain Plus has been found to help consumers gain weight, so we fully expect this product to have no discernible effect whatsoever.

Customer reviews back this assessment up, with almost all reviews posted to the official Amazon product claiming that the product did nothing for them.

What Are The Ingredients of Nutrigain Plus?

The ingredients included in Nutrigain Plus (capsule version) are listed below. The ingredient quantities listed below are correct for 1 500mg capsule. Readers can find the ingredients and ingredient quantities found in the powdered form of this product below the capsule ingredient list.

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera Rt) Extract 25mg: The only study that seems to have examine ashwagandha’s impact on bodyweight concluded that the herb helped strength-training athletes to lose weight rather than gain. In any case, the dosage included in this product is far too low to be effective. Source
  • Amalaki (Emblica officinalis Fr) Extract 11mg: This ayurvedic herb is mainly used to improve general wellbeing by reducing blood glucose levels and cholesterol. It has no reputation as a weight gain supplement and has only ever been used in weight loss trials. Source
  • Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris Wh. Pl) Extract 15mg: This libido enhancer and erectile dysfunction cure has been repeatedly found to have no impact on fat loss/gain or athletic performance. Source
  • Musali (Chlorophytum borivilianum Rt) Extract 10mg: Though tradition dictates that this herb helps consumers to gain weight after drinking with milk, there is no scientific evidence whatsoever to back this claim up. It has been somewhat proven to work as a male sexual enhancement cure. Source
  • Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus Rt) Extract 25mg: Though promising as a treatment for diabetes, virtually no scientific studies have been conducted on shatavari to see what properties it has. It’s not typically linked with weight gain effects at all. Source
  • Kharjura (Phoenix dactylifera Fr) Extract 17mg: Otherwise known as palm dates, this ingredient has apparently been put into the mix on the logic that eating lots of dates helps most to put on weight. Astute readers will notice that 17mg of powdered dates will not magically have the same effect. Source
  • Pippali (Piper longum Fr) Extract 12mg: Far from working as a weight gain treatment, Indian long peppers are thought to potentially work as an anti-obesity cure due to its ability to inhibit fat storage lipids. Source
  • Maricha (Piper nigrum Fr) Extract 12 mg: Once again, black pepper extract has never been found to help consumers gain weight. If it has any effect on weight, it is the opposite effect; a component of black pepper (piperine) is actually thought to fight fat cells. Source
  • Shunti (Zingiber officinale Rz) Extract 12 mg: Ginger is mainly used as an anti-nausea treatment and is not thought to have any effect on weight gain. Source
  • Jeeraka (Cuminum cyminum Fr) Extract 12 mg: Cumin is sometimes used for digestion problems and as an aphrodisiac, although there is no evidence out there suggesting that it does anything other than add flavour to food. Source

The ingredients included in Nutrigain Plus (powder version) are listed below. The ingredient quantities listed below are correct for 25g of powder.

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera Rt) Extract 175mg
  • Amalaki (Emblica officinalis Fr) Extract 100mg
  • Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris Wh. Pl) Extract 100mg
  • Shatavad (Asparagus racemosus Rt) Extract 125mg
  • Draksha (Vitis Vinifera Fr) Extract 125mg: Grape vines are traditionally used in ayurvedic medicine to alleviate digestive disorders such as constipation. Source
  • Kharjura (Phoenix dactylifera Fr) Extract 125mg
  • Sariva (Hemidesmus indicus) Extract 125mg: Although its actual effects are unspecified and no scientific studies have ever recorded thus outcome, tradition dictates that this herb is good when used to treat anorexia. Source
  • Pippali (Piper longum Fr) Extract 25mg
  • Maricha (Piper nigrum Fr) Extract 25mg
  • Shunti (Zingiber officinale Rz) Extract 25mg
  • Jeeraka (Cuminum cyminum Fr) Extract 25mg

Does Nutrigain Plus Have Any Side Effects?

Few of the ingredients found in Nutrigain Plus are linked with side effects, although readers must remember that most have never been examined thoroughly in scientific studies. Using some ingredients may induce side effects that are, as of yet, unknown.

Ashwaghanda is almost always free of side effects, although large doses can cause stomach problems, diarrhoea, and vomiting. Tribulus terrestris can sometimes cause mild insomnia and there are some concerns that it may be linked to prostate problems in men.

Ginger is generally free from side effects, although some people may experience slight discomforts such as heartburn, diarrhoea and mild stomach pains. Some women report extra menstrual bleeding after consuming ginger.

Not recommended for diabetics, pregnant woman & lactating mothers. Do not exceed recommended serving size. Use only as directed. Not intended for use by persons under 18 or by those with a serious medical condition. Please consult your physician before using this product.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Nutrigain Plus?

The customer reviews we found for Nutrigain Plus online were almost universally negative. Most former customers simply claim that the product did nothing for them and that it represents a huge waste of money. Oddly enough, many customers appear to have received advice from the company to take both the powder and the capsules together, although most that try this approach report that it is not enough to make the product work properly.

This product is useless, worst product ever i seen please people don’t buy this product i feel cheated from amazon.

it doesn’t work.. waste of money..

its totally bad. no weight gain

I’ve faced severe gastro problem after eating the Nutrigain capsules, don’t buy without medical consultation

If you are planning to buy only capsules, it’s a waste of money. Nothing worked with me. But if you take both powder and capsules, it works but it’s temporary. After few months you will come back to your original state.

Does Nutrigain Plus Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

Ayurwin do not appear to have any kind of money back guarantee or returns policy. Customers may only contact the company to arrange for a new shipping of an item when one was delivered in a damaged state. The returns policies or money back guarantee policies of other 3rd party retailers may vary, so always check around to find the best deal possible.

Where Can I Buy Nutrigain Plus?

Indian readers can buy Nutrigain Plus from the official Ayurwin website and from Amazon, as well as from a handful of online 3rd party retailers. International buyers may also be able to buy from these outlets, but may also choose to buy from certain dedicated suppliers devoted to selling Indian products to the international market (like Emporium on Net, Online USA Mart or USA Herbal Products).

Indian customers can expect a relative bargain compared to their European or American counterparts. The 60-capsule pack of Nutrigain Plus costs just 460 rupees on Amazon, 472 rupees on Medplus Mart, and 497 rupees on the official Ayurwin website and the Click on Care website. The 500g tub of powder costs just 794 rupees on Amazon and 895 rupees on the Ayurwin website.

International customers are seemingly unable to buy the powdered form of the product but can pick up the 60-capsule pack from Emporium on Net for $24.15, from Online USA Mart for $24.90, and from USA Herbal Products for $25. Other versions of the same websites exist for British, Australian or European customers.
