Muscle-Building Ingredients found in Gorilla Max:


Protein plays a major role in repairing muscles after workouts by supplying the muscle with their building blocks of amino acids.

Gorilla Max contains more protein than any other product on the market (76% protein per bag, 20 grams of protein per scoop, 192% more protein than dog food).


According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the following vitamins play an important role in Muscle Recovery:

  • Vitamin C: Helps repair tendons
  • Vitamin D: Helps reduce inflammation
  • Vitamin E: Increases blood circulation
  • B Vitamins: Assists with cell development
  • Vitamin A: Helps the immune system and major organs function properly

Gorilla Max contains all of these vitamins


BCAAs (Branch Chain Amino Acids) are also depleted during workouts and will need replenishing.

Gorilla Max contains the following BCAAs:

  • L­Isoleucine
  • L­Valine
  • L­Leucine *Leucine is the only amino acid that has the ability to stimulate muscle synthesis

    I was looking at this recipe and I was just wondering where the bone is on the recipe? The BARF diet asks for 80% Meat 10% Bone and 10% Excreting Organs and Veggies and Fruits are added if you want to because it does not make up their complete balanced diet. Yet this recipe is made up for 60% Meat and 40% Fruits and Veggies, egg, and Rice? If some one could contact me about this recipe I would love to discuss this more. Thank you.

    two days ago I rec’d a puppy of nine weeks of age. I was told he had a sever hookworm infestation at very early age, he was born bigger then his sister, but now he is half her size. the vet has cleared him, he is off all meds and he is a good eater. could I give him the Gorilla Max to help him gain muscle. he lost a lot of muscle during his illness and is still boney. I don’t want to do anything that will cause him problems or take away from his skeletal growth.


    For the serving do i feed them once a day on the serving size or how many times a day do i feed them? if its just once when should i feed them and if its multiple when should i feed him?. Responses are appreciated

    How much does this recipe make? I have an 80 pound boxer that I rescued who has been through a lot, he has poor muscle development from lack of proper nutrition when he was developing. I am just figuring out price and how much to make for a 2 two to 4 week period.

    I started following some of Doggy Dan’s online dog training videos from http://WWW.K9HELPER.INFO when I got a new puppy and saw a review by someone else on a pet site, so I joined the program. I have learned a lot! The Online Dog Trainer has made the process of raising a new puppy so much less stressful and a more relaxed and enjoyable process. I had not had a puppy for over 10 years and I was worried it would be difficult. Not so with the help of Doggy Dan. Thank you to a fellow commenter who recommended this training program to me. Now it’s my turn to do the same for another :)
