I’ve been using this as part of my bulk and have used it to effectively put on a fairly lean 20lbs in 3 months. My exercise is limited because I m currently a shift worker at a hospital. I workout 5-6 days a week. I’ve been lifting seriously for 3 years.
I am a fan of the array of different protein types included in this product. It’s not a whey isolate, so don’t expect it to act like one. The protein profile consists of whey isolate, calcium caseinate, micellar casein, milk protein isolate, and egg albumen. It’s an anytime protein shake including pre and post workout, morning and night consumption or a snack. The EAA’s and added carbs make this great for me. They allow you to build on mass and the carbs help shuttle the protein as opposed to a strict whey isolate.
The taste is better than any other brands I’ve tried. I’m basing this off of Optimum Nutrition Whey, Isopure, Animal,Rekaged and a few others. It mixes immaculately. The flavors taste like they actually say they are. Chocolate cake batter means it will actually taste like chocolate cake batter, unlike other brands which claim it tastes like chocolate sunshine but actually tastes like gym shorts.
I used this while doing a bulk over the past few months and it’s helped me put on fairly lean mass. I’ve used about 3-4 servings throughout the day on both training and non training days and always post workout. My strength and size has gone up while using this and I accredit this to my weight training of course, and this product which I’ve included in my diet. I felt that the EAA’s contributed to my recovery and the shakes were filling so I was able to stave off some of my mid-day hunger.
There’s always deals on this product, my last order was 10lbs for $66. Bodybuilding.com has an offer of buy 1 get 1 50% off.
Some minor gastrointestinal distress (gas). Nothing too crazy or abnormal but notable.
For most people trying to gain muscle [u]this is for you![/u] I’ve been very impressed with the flavors above everything else and I always look forward to my next shake.
Other useful information
The manufacturer’s website says BSN SYNTHA-6 “supports muscle growth, supports muscle protein synthesis, and helps kick-start the recovery process.”
There’s no denying the product can do all these things with its impressive protein matrix consisting of WPI, WPC, calcium caseinate, micellar casein, egg albumin, and milk protein isolates. Making BSN Syntha-6 your go-to protein blend can help you grow lean muscle and boost your recovery.
Having said that, you may also wish to consider using a casein-based protein powder because this will be more suitable if you are purely looking for a protein powder that will digest as slowly as possible.
What happens when we digest a protein source is that our blood amino acids begin to rise the speed of this rise is dictated by the rate at which we can digest any given food source. The rate at which our blood amino levels rise can typically be an indicator of how quickly they will subsequently fall.
The example given above of a Whey Protein Isolate shake illustrates this perfectly; a simple shake like this will spike your blood amino levels but the effects will be transient, leaving you hungry and starved of amino acids within an hour or two.
Syntha-6 does of course contain Whey Protein Isolate, but combining it with the other five protein sources will ensure that your body is still receiving the amino acids it needs long after the typical drop off would have occurred if you downed a plain old Whey Isolate drink.
BSN Syntha-6 offers reasonable value for money; youre always going to pay more for a premium blend of proteins like this but if this is what youre looking for then you really cant go wrong with a product like Syntha-6.
This protein powder is available in more than a dozen tasty flavors which will give you months and months of variety as you cycle through each one, and the inclusion of Papain and Bromelain enzymes should give your body what it needs to effectively digest and absorb the proteins.
