Scitec Jumbo – Analysis

Jumbo means big! Jumbo means strong! Will it be true? At least that's what Scitec says.

Hypercalorics, or gainers, are the most effective supplements for gaining weight, and the Scitec Jumbo It is probably one of the best known in the category.

The fluorescent green packaging you usually see on supplement store counters? It's most likely Jumbo.

There are three versions of this high-calorie product, and the analysis will be on the normal version, green packaging, that is, the cheapest!

After this review, you will be officially ready to give a talk about Jumbo.

Scitec Jumbo Nutritional Value

100g Servings/220g
Calories 367.27 Kcal 808 kcal
Proteins 22.73g 50g
Carbohydrates 65.46g 144g
Fats 3.14g 6.90g


This supplement from Scitec Nutrition, as you can see from the table, is composed of 65,46% of carbohydrates, which is a lot, especially if you use the dose recommended by the brand.

In relation to protein, it presents a protein content of 22,73%, and a fat concentration of 3,14%.

Furthermore, for every 100g you have 367.27 calories, and for each serving, 808 calories.

Nutrient division is not the best, it should have more protein and less carbohydrates. That's why you need such a large dose (220g) to reach the 50g of protein mentioned by the brand.

Both the Professional version and the Hardcore version of Jumbo increase protein and reduce carbohydrates, which means that Scitec knows perfectly well that this type of supplement MUST have more protein.

In addition to the amount of carbohydrates being too high, if you use the full dose, you have 59g of sugar inside your shaker. This corresponds to approximately 8 packets of coffee sugar. Yes, eight.

In terms of fat, there is not much to comment, as the quantity is low.

These are the raw values, but Scitec Jumbo is also made up of some extra ingredients, which will be analyzed below.

Side effects: Clothes turn green.



Jumbo's protein source is simple: Whey protein concentrate.

Although there are some added amino acids, the protein source is basically just concentrated whey, which is good since it's a source of protein of very good quality and excellent biological value.


This is where Scitec starts to complicate things, and place the ingredients under “matrices”.

The carbohydrates in this supplement are present in the so-called 6-Carb Matrix.

What is the 6-Carb Matrix?

It's simply a combination of six different types of carbohydrates, nothing more.

The carbohydrate with the greatest presence in Jumbo is Dextrose, which is why each dose is made up of 59g of sugar. Dextrose, also known as glucose, is a sugar with a very high glycemic index (100) and apart from post-workout, it is a carbohydrate to avoid.

Next we have oat flour, which is a good source of carbohydrates, and you probably already know it, and Palatinose, which is also OK.

Then we have Maltodextrin and fructose. Maltodextrin, like dextrose, should only be used post-workout, and is not of much use outside of that. It's the cheap sugar in these types of supplements.

Fructose is fruit sugar, which is also not the best choice, although less bad than dextrose.

Finally, we have Waxy Maize, which is present in very low quantities, and is also a good carbohydrate for post-workout.

Matrices and?more matrices

Scitec, after the 6-Carb matrix, subdivided the rest of the ingredients into matrices, and therefore, we will make a small comment on each of them.

Crea-Bomb? Patented Multi-Component Creatine Matrix

Translation: Creatine

This matrix is nothing more than a mixture of Creatines, in which Creatine Monohydrate dominates, and then we have small amounts of other types of Creatine.

Scitec Jumbo consists of 2.5% of Creatine and 5.6g per dose.

The other types of Creatine that we find here besides Creatine Monohydrate are:

Micronized Creatine Monohydrate, Creatine Citrate, Creatine Phosphate and Creatine Pyruvate.

Once again, Creatine Monohydrate dominates here, and the rest only make up less than 500mg each.

It is good? It's bad?

Creatine Monohydrate continues to be the best choice when it comes to Creatine, and this matrix is nothing more than a marketing ploy, after all, five types of Creatine can only be better than just one?or maybe not.

HEMO-NO Matrix

Translation: Arginine

After mixing Creatine, the HEMO-NO matrix is made up of 3 ingredients:

L-Arginine, L-Ornithine and Calcium Alpha-Ketoglutarate.

The role of this matrix is theoretically to increase volumization and nitric oxide, but only Arginine is present in a minimally viable dose, and even then it is low.

For each dose of Jumbo we have 880mg of L-Arginine added, as for the other two ingredients, the dose is 88mg for each one.

Amino Select Jumbo Matrix

Translation: Glutamine

This matrix is composed of Glutamine and Alanine. Alanine is in lower case as the dose is so low that it's not even worth being here.

There are 946mg of Glutamine and 11mg of Alanine per dose.

Glutamine can theoretically help with recovery and have an anti-catabolic role, but at this dose it will be difficult for it to do anything.

As for alanine? With this dose you will need a microscope to find it.

BCAA Xpress 100% Pure Essential Amino Acid Complex

Translation: BCAA's

A giant name for something that can be defined with so few letters: BCAA's.

This matrix is made up of the 3 amino acids called BCAA's, and nothing else.

There are 500mg of Leucine, 220mg of Isoleucine and 220mg of Valine per dose.

The dose is low, but considering that whey protein is high in BCAA's, there is no problem.

Support complex

Translation: Magnesium and Bioperine

Finally, the support complex is made up of two ingredients.

Magnesium in the form of carbonate, which is a form with poor bioavailability, and bioperine which theoretically improves the absorption of some nutrients.jumbo scitec gym


2,860kg 4.4kg
Total cost 32.99? 48.34?
Cost per dose 2.53? 2.41?
Cost per 100g 1.15? 1.09?


This is the most difficult parameter to evaluate, as the price varies from store to store, and from time to time.

We used the price charged by Prozis as a reference.

Each Jumbo shake, if you use the full dose, will cost you something between 2.40? and 2.53?, depending on the size you buy.

In other words, it's not as cheap as it seems at first glance.

If you want to stretch your supplement a little further, and choose to use only 100g per dose, it will cost you around 1.10? each shake.

Where to buy?

You will find the Scitec Jumbo available here and you can still use the code GVIRTUAL to get a discount.

How and when to take it?

Taking into account the nutritional values and the ingredients used, The best time to use this supplement is post-workout.

We do not recommend using the full dose at once, as there are too many carbohydrates. You can use just half a dose post-workout, or if you want to use the full dose, half a dose before training and half a dose after training.


O Scitec Jumbo It only stands out in the color of the packaging, and little else.

It's a gainer with just 22,73% of protein, which is low, but fortunately it uses Whey protein instead of low-quality protein sources like many supplements of this type.

The dose of carbohydrates is excessive, and mainly sugar, where if you use the full dose, it is 59g. It is so exaggerated that the two next and more advanced versions of Jumbo (Professional and Hardcore) reduce carbohydrates and increase proteins significantly.

As for extras, the only one that really deserves to be highlighted is Creatine, with the remaining ingredients being present in too low doses, and serving more to decorate the label than to give you real benefits.

Will you gain weight with this supplement?

Most likely yes, especially if you use the full dose, it may not be ideal weight gain.

Having said that, and considering the other supplements of the same kind on the market, this supplement gets three stars, that is to say, it is satisfying, just.
