Masszymes review-What I found about this supplement as a vegan

Spread the love

We all love to have the foods we eat get absorbed with all the nutrients and vitamins. Many people focus on eating large amounts of protein and hope to get the muscles they need, however this does not always happen.

This is because protein in food needs to be turned into amino acids which will in turn produce muscle mass. In Most cases this does not happen, so that is where enzymes come into play in converting the protein to amino acids.

Masszymes supplements is one of the few products which does this converting process.

In this masszymes review I will be talked about whether masszymes is best for your needs or not and how effective is it. This review will be thoroughly an unbiased one.

masszymes review

So a quick one before we start……… So why should you read this review?

Here are the reasons:

  1. I have been a vegan for over 10 years and became a vegan due to health reasons, so health is a huge concern for me. You can check my vegan story here.
  2. I review all the products that I buy mostly so that I can help anyone with what I have experienced.
  3. I took masszymes to help increase my muscle mass and protein in my body since I lost so much muscle mass when I turned vegan.

Basically most people think eating a lot of protein-filled food will help them with gaining great amount of muscles and thus they focus on protein-rich foods and supplements.

I do not blame these people because it is the supplement industry which gives people this false promise.

I was once one of those people too until I started scrutinizing every supplement that I put in my body to see if it actually worked.

This was sparked my need to increase my protein and muscle mass right after I started a vegan diet in 2010.

This was very important for me to do since I am an athlete ( a ballroom dancer) and I needed to have the right amounts of protein and muscles to perform well in my sport.

This is when I tried a few supplements and masszymes was one of the products I tried.

After getting some insight from consuming it I decide to do a review about it in terms of how it worked for my me.

I will talk about what masszymes is and what are its usages and who it is more suitable for.

I will also be talking about what I like and what I do not like about the product so you will know the whole profile about the product if you are considering buying it.

Masszymes Overview

What attracted me to the masszymes supplements and to the reason why I am doing a review is because this product was created a vegetarian bodybuilder name Wade T Lightheart.

This related well to me since I am a plant based eater and I needed to gain muscle mass. So this product came at the perfect time for me.

So who is Wade T Lightheart?

Wade. T. Lightheart is a 3 times all National Bodybuilding champion adviser for the Anti-cancer Institute in American who underwent a huge health problem, earlier in his life, which led him to focus on nutrition health.

Among his other accolades Wade is a best-selling book author for the following health books:

  • The wealthy backpacker
  • Staying Alive in a Toxic world

He is also the founder and director of education BiOptimizers Nutrition which is a company helping people with nutritional health.

He used the influence he has to collaborate with the world’s top enzyme scientist to create a unique and first ever enzyme formula which was to specifically help athlete, bodybuilders and weightlifters with building muscles.

Why masszymes?

Masszymes is basically an enzyme formula which helps give you lean muscle gains as well as recovery of muscles after doing a work out.

What the masszymes does is that it helps improve protein digestion by flooding the body with enzymes.

The enzymes work to turn the protein into amino acids which is what is needed to be used by the body to induce muscle development and recovery after a workout session.

Most people think that eating protein-rich foods and weightlifting will help build muscles,but the reality is that not all protein that you eat in foods will be converted into useful form of amino acids to build your muscles.

What is more is that masszymes has the ability to convert about 60% of the protein you eat daily into amino acids.

This is because it is made for athletes who are intense at their practice or competition sessions so they can use up all the protein in the body from the foods they eat.

More than muscle building, masszymes helps improve optimal digestion as well.

See the in depth way of how protein is absorbed in the body on the below video.

Features of the masszymes

Now I am sure you are eager to know what the masszymes really has before you decide on purchasing it.

This section will talk about the nutritional values it has and what you will get along with this product.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients.

  • Bromelain
  • Amylase
  • Enzyme blend
  • Tri-Phase Protease
  • Protease 4.5
  • Protease 6.0
  • Protease 3.0
  • Peptidase
  • Alpha-galactosidase
  • Lipase
  • Astrazyme
  • Malt diastase
  • Lactase

These are all natural ingredients which are mostly enzyme based which help in giving masszymes supplement that huge amino acid converting ability to protein.

Although some of the above ingredients like Bromelain focus on digestion more than they do for muscle building it is safe to say that they all do a similar job.

As you can see there are no artificial ingredients or any drugs or even substance which help enhance the effect of the supplements like creatine.

This makes it a safe and natural product.

Other reviewers have reported improved brain health indicated by improved concentration.

What else is included?

You also get a PDF along with the products so you can know how and when it should be taken.

What I like about the Masszymes

Now that you know all about the function and composition of the masszymes now we will talk about what I like about the masszymes.

  • Faster muscle development

The main aspect of the masszymes supplement is its focus on muscular building which I did benefit a lot on as I said earlier. This goes without saying since this was the reason Wade made this product.

If you have read my story you will know that when I started a vegan diet I lost a lot of muscle mass and weight which is why I was looking for a way to gain weight and muscles especially since I am a dancer (athlete).

I was able to gain muscles quicker than when I tried focusing on foods and weights only. Although I have to admit the transformation was not huge but it did show quicker results than what I anticipated (a little over 2 weeks).

  • Enhance energy levels.

One aspect they should emphasize on the masszymes is the boost of energy levels that it gives you. When compared to muscular development effect, energy level boost was the most prominent characteristic for me.

  • Great customer service

masszymes review

If you have any queries with this product you can talk to the company anytime, They provide an online chat for their customers with their customer service team.

  • Muscle recovery after exercise

The enzymes in the masszymes formula do enhanced damaged muscles to help recover quickly, at least that is what they claim.

I do not have enough proof in my body about this besides that I did get developed muscles before and after my dance workouts when I used this formula.

  • No drugs added-No side effects

I also loved the fact that the masszymes is free of any drugs to help with any enhancements other than enzymes which makes it free of any side effects.

  • 365 day money back guarantee

This is one of the best aspects about this product because this means you can try this product risk-free for 365 days.

This shows the confidence that Wade has in this product for helping you build muscle mass.

  • Boost immune system

Many reviews online have highlighted great benefit with their immune system function. Maybe that is why I said I experienced higher energy levels.

  • Reduce joint pain

Reducing joint pain is another huge benefit that is emphasized that comes with the masszymes supplements.

This is because protein,according to research, is said to be one of the key nutrients along with calcium and vitamin D in promoting bone health and reducing osteoporosis.

  • Improves digestion

People who eat a vegan or vegetarian diet are said to benefit a lot from digestive enzymes according to Brain Balance Achievement Centers.


Since this product has digestive enzymes it makes it a best choice.

  • Enhance brain health

Brain Balance Achievement Centers further says that enzymes (like those in masszymes) are particularly vital for brain health and development.

  • Better absorption of vitamins

We now know that the enzymes in masszymes are used to convert nutrients like protein into amino acids to better use in the body.

  • Unique supplement

This supplement is the only one of its kind to exist.

  • The founder is a real person

Unlike many health products and programs which a fake person (or Avatar) is used to promote it this product is very legit and real and does not hide behind the computer to promote his product.

What I do not like about the Masszymes

I will not end this post without talking about the negatives that masszymes has since I promised to give you the most unbiased masszymes review possible.

So let’s start.

  • Needs you to add lost of exercise to see benefits

I will just say it straight. I

In order for you to get the full benefits of muscle grown you will really need to work hard to attain this. The good thing is that it will not take a long time but it will need you to work.

  • Pricy

The other aspect I did not like too much was the price of the masszymes as I felt it would have worked out well if the cost was lower.

The verdict- Does this supplement really work?


This section I will be providing some research as well as my experience from using the product to help you see if it does work or not.

According to Encyclopedia Brittanica protease, also called proteolytic enzyme is known to break down protein molecules into small segments called peptides.

These peptides are then broken down into amino acids which can be used effectively in the body.

According to healthline Bromelain which is found in masszymes is used to prevent osteoporosis by providing proper digestion of nutrients and it is used to dissolve pain in sore muscles.

My experience

As I said before, when it came to using the supplement to increase my muscle mass it worked like a bomb in a short period.

As far as other benefits like digestion I can not say for sure if I felt benefits.

I think the reason for the great benefit in muscle development is that when Wade and his team did this supplement they focused more on developing a product that was going to increase muscle mass more than digestion improvement.

Verdict conclusion

masszymes review

As far as the research and my experience (of the masszymes) and also the claim of the product everything was aligned quite well. So this is the reason I would say as far as using this supplement for muscle building and recovery after a work out it works well.

If you find that this product does not work for you there are other options which I use to mainly help the masszymes with the increasing of protein content in my bloodstream such as Vegansmart protein powder.

This is like an added effect for the masszymes to produce more amino acids in the body, remember the more quality protein in the body the more the masszymes will make amino acids for muscle building.

Final thoughts

Many people who are looking to gain muscles get caught up in the exercising and the protein intake while forgetting to actually realize that building muscles is more than that.

You see foods and strength building are just one component.

The final component to make your muscle grow is making sure the protein in foods is converted into amino acids so the body can easily use it to build muscles.

Masszymes supplement is, according to me, one of the best ways to do this since this product was made exclusively for building lean muscles by Wade and his team.

There are pros and cons about this product but the pros greatly outweigh the cons.

For an example I feel the product is more on the expensive side but if you think at the investment you put to the product compared to the gain you get you will soon realize that masszymes is value for money.

Remember in life you get what you pay for. So for me I do not have any regrets with using this product and I will keep using it for a long time.

I am not saying it will work well for you but these are the actual benefits that you need to check for yourself.

I hope you enjoyed my masszymes review and I hope it was beneficial to you. If you have any question or have any comments then you can leave them below. I will be happy to engage with you.

    I did not even know there was such a thing as vegan cat food.

    I was also skeptical about whether or not it would be right for cats until I saw the health stats you posted.

  2. George

    Cool i am about to be vegan too for health reasons (only honey left to be cut) but i don’t really want muscle at least for now. Anyways good thing i found this vegan site. Cheers

    • Thabo Khoza

      Hey George

      Wow I am glad to see someone just turning vegan. I remember when I started out on this journey.
      All the best and if you need help please do not be scared to ask and also be sure to check my other article for vegans.

    Hello Thabo,

    I Googled What Is Masszymes and I found you. Nice work. There was a time vegan foods looked terrible. Not appetizing at all. Now I see menu’s for vegans and I am like that looks so delicious

    The choices look so appealing, and the fact they have very real meat substitutes that I have tried and really does taste like meat, I don’t see the harm in turning vegan myself.

    Thank You Thank You – you have given me a lot to (ahem) ‘chew’ on. Sorry, I have a dry sense of humor.


    • Thabo Khoza

      Hey Philip

      Thank you very much for your feedback from my article. Yes now vegan diet is becoming popular and this is why masszymes will really flourish as more people are looking to increase their protein in their bodies as vegans.

  4. Rodney

    This was an interesting review. I have never taken digestive enzymes before, but have seen them recommend by different practitioners. Definitely a product worth considering.

    My Fiancé and I have reduced our protein intake a little, due to her having some autoimmune issues, so perhaps a supplement like this could help us to maintain our lean tissue.

    I do have a couple of questions for you. You mentioned that you noticed fairly rapid muscle gains when you started using this product (around 2 weeks), that’s impressive. How did you measure these gains? Did you physically gain weight?

    My other question is how much protein, used in conjunction with Masszymes, do you feel is adequate to support muscle gain?

    Definitely important information for anyone that eats a Vegan diet, or any diet. Thank you.

    • Thabo Khoza

      Hey Rodney

      Thank you very much. Yes enzymes are a must if you are vegetarians or vegans.

      I measured the gain by physically seeing muscle tones on my body and also my personal coach noticing the growth.
      With regards to protein it is somewhere like 60 grams per day for an average person

  5. Jeff

    Struggling with my strict diet of no gluten and no dairy has me seeking all-natural supplements to stay healthy, and your review and your experience being a vegan has impressed me.

    I am eating mainly vegetables and a ton of vitamins because my vitamin and mineral levels are extremely low, so what I am asking is would this be a good supplement choice for me with my strict diet?


  6. Lisa

    Hi Thabo,

    Wow, thanks for this detailed masszymes review. I have already done a load of research on enzymes in foodstuffs, and as a result, I’d increased my intake of fermented foods but there is only so much sauerkraut and Kimchi that you can eat before it all becomes a bit much! This is even when I’m drinking Kombucha too…

    My original focus for fermented food was based on it working well to resolve my irritable bowel syndrome, but as we’re now coming up on summer once again I could would love a protein enhancer to assist with my cutting while doing CrossFit, and masszymes looks like it might be ideal (especially with the recovery benefits too!).

    I have a question though – as it is on the pricy side would I be alright to use this supplement purely while I’m cutting, or is it one of the supplements that best results are achieved after long term use?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Thabo Khoza

      Hey Lisa

      Great you enjoyed. Yes everything has to be in moderation in your body even with sauerkraut and Kimchi too.

      This product works long term because it is basically a building system for your enzymes and these get built over time.
      I hope this helps
