BSN Syntha 6: Tastes Great!

This brings us to the last item for review in our BSN supplement stack. So far, we've reviewed Cell Mass, True Mass, and Axis HT. You can get a hold of our reviews on BSN Endorush and NO Xplode here.

Syntha 6 is an extended release protein supplement that comes with a mix of fast, medium and slow absorbing proteins that will supply your body with proteins over an extended period of time.

BSN User Reviews

This means that this is NOT an after workout protein supplement, and optimal times for taking something like this is throughout the day (other than post workout), and at bed time. If you've read some of the protein reviews and articles on the site here, you'll know there's different types of protein such as whey, soy, egg, etc... Different proteins have different absorption rates. For example, a whey is a fast absorbing protein so it's best taken right after a workout, and a protein mix including casein is a slower digesting protein.

BSN Syntha 6 is a mixture of whey concentrates, whey isolates, caseinate proteins, and egg protein. If you're unsure of the difference between these proteins see our articles on whey protein processing part 1 and part 2 - these two articles explain in some detail about the different whey protein types and their process methods.

BSN Syntha 6 Protein Review

As mentioned above, Syntha 6 is a blend of various proteins that provides an extended release formula supplying proteins to our body. It's not a cheap protein supplement, and because of this, I elected to use it solely as a bedtime protein - taking it before I sleep. We've received many excellent user reviews and feedback on BSN Syntha 6, which you can read here.

Syntha 6 Protein Mix: There are several types of protein in BSN Syntha 6, and we'll give a brief overview of what they are - you can read more about them in detail in other articles on the site here.

Whey Protein Concentrate - Most of the whey protein powders you find will contain mostly whey protein concentrate with some whey protein isolate mixed in. You'll also find a lot of pure whey protein concentrate, and some pure whey protein isolate products.

Whey Protein Isolate - Comparing the two, whey protein isolate is more expensive than concentrate - because it's of higher quality (more pure), and have a higher biological value (BV). Whey protein isolate contains more protein with less fat and lactose per serving. Usually, isolate contains 90-98% protein while whey concentrate contains 70-85%.

Casein Protein - is a slow digesting protein that provides the body with protein for an extended period of time.

Egg Protein - Egg protein is commonly referred to as the "perfect protein" - egg proteins are the common reference to which other proteins are compared to. Egg protein scores 100 on the biological value, meaning all ingested egg protein is retained (used) by the body (egg protein contains all the essential amino acids needed by the body).

A tub of Syntha 6 comes in 2.91lbs with 30 servings per container. It's not a cheap protein supplement, and it can run out pretty quick depending on how often you use it, and how much you use per serving. Like I mentioned above, it's not cheap, so I use it only as a bed time protein. Whether you decide to use 1 scoops or 2 scoops is up to you, and dependant on your overall nutritional goals. If you're a little short on protein for a particular day, take an extra scoop, or if you've consumed a good amount of protein, take just 1 scoop. It all depends on the user.

BSN Syntha 6 Taste

Syntha 6 comes in several flavors including chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cookies n cream, and mochaccino. This is probably one of the better tasting protein powders. Both chocolate and vanilla are pleasant to drink, and I'm guessing the other flavors would be pretty good as well, although I've not tried them myself. Many users also gave excellent ratings for its taste.

Syntha 6 is easily mixed as well with no clumping at all. Mix it with some milk before bed, and it tastes just like a milk shake. Although it's not a cheap protein supplement, it's not that expensive either - a 2.91lb tub goes for around $30, and each tub comes with 30 servings which works out to about a buck a serving.
