How to use Complan for weight gain for Adults – Complan Review
I have always drunk complan so that I can grow taller. But obviously, it did not work. And it did not work much for weight gain as well.
Definitely not for adults as well.
Complan is a health drink like many others and should be used for general purposes only.
Complan tastes good and has many vitamins, but it is not calorie dense, neither it has a high amount of protein. Thus, it is not an ideal drink for weight gain.
For adults, they should rather buy whey proteins and make their own weight gain shakes.
Check this complan cons section to know why whey is superior option for adults for weight gain and not complan.
Complan drink benefits—benefits of complan for adults

Complan Cons and Comparison with whey protein for weight gain
- Many complain that natural flavour has degraded than before.
- Complan has 21.8 grams of sugar (in Natural Flavour). A lot of sugar in a so-called health drink.
As an adult, you do not need this for weight gain. In this complan review, I would clear that for you.
Complan only provides 18-gram protein from 100-gram scoop. Whereas with protein powder you will get at least 25 grams of protein per 35-gram scoop at least.
Also, you do not know what type of protein is that. I guess it is mostly casein protein since milk has 80% of it.
Protein per scoop of course varies from brand to brand. For example, my protein provides 21-gram protein per 25 gram scoop.
So in short –
Complain 18% protein/scoop (probably slow absorbing casein protein)
General whey protein concentrate—84% protein per scoop.
Whey is also easily digestible and absorbs quicker to fuel your muscles.
If you can spend, you can get whey isolates, which are lactose free.
Low price, lower quality of the supplement.
For general health, this is okay, but not for specific goals like weight gaining.
54.7% milk solids, sugar, peanut oil, malt, added vitamins and minerals, taurine and L-cartinine.
