 BSN's Syntha-6

Description

BSN's Syntha-6 is a multi-functional AM to PM sustained release protein powder formulated to promote lean muscle gain, energy and recovery. It contains six different nutritionally complete proteins including a proprietary protein matrix, active protein utilization enzymes, BCAAs (branched chain amino acids), glutamine peptides, MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), EFAs (essential fatty acids), a fiber matrix and essential minerals. Syntha-6 provides up to eight hours of amino acid nitrogen delivery, ensuring that muscles receive a continuous supply of protein building blocks.

The proprietary protein matrix features fast-release and slow-release ultra-filtered whey protein concentrates, microfiltered whey protein concentrates,  egg albumen, milk protein concentrate, calcium caseinates and micellar alpha and beta-caseins. The ultra-filtered and microfiltered whey protein concentrates and egg albumin have a 2 to 3 hour digestion rate, milk protein concentrate has a 4 to 6 hour digestion rate and calcium caseinates and micellar alpha and beta-caseins have a 6 to 8 hour digestion rate. Together they promote an eight hour sustained flow of vital amino acids to support positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein) for muscle gain and recovery. The addition of BCAAs leucine, valine and isoleucine and conditionally essential amino acid glutamine aids muscle energy, recovery and repair.

The active protein utilization enzymes include Aminogen and papain. Aminogen is a naturally derived, patented plant enzyme that aids in protein digestion and assimilation. Papain (derived from papayas) is a digestive enzyme and natural anti-inflammatory agent. The fiber matrix delivers 5 grams of dietary fiber to promote digestive health and fat loss. MCTs and EFAs are "good" fats that promote fat metabolism and lean muscle. MCTs are medium chain fatty acids that are more easily digested than larger fat molecules and more likely burned for muscle energy than stored as fat.


Pros

BSN's Syntha-6 is a multi-functional AM to PM sustained release protein powder. BSN promises up to 8 hours of amino acid nitrogen delivery. It features a 'ridiculously' delicious chocolate milkshake flavor.

Syntha-6 has the following benefits:

  • 8 hour sustained release multi-functional protein matrix
  • Bioactive protein utilization enzymes (Aminogen and papain)
  • BCAA's and glutamine enhance muscle repair and recovery
  • 5 grams of fiber enhance digestive health
  • MCTs and EFAs maximize lean muscle and fat metabolism

Cons

People who are allergic to dairy products should avoid whey protein.
Ingesting MCTs on an empty stomach can cause GI (gastrointestinal) upset.

People with pre-existing medical conditions or taking medication should not supplement with Syntha-6 without consulting a physician.
