BSN Syntha-6 is a multifunctional protein powder that is fast growing in popularity. The protein matrix consists of six different proteins, hence the name Syntha-6. These proteins are Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, Micellar Casein, Milk Protein Isolate, Egg Albumen and Glutamine Peptides. These proteins together, form the foundation of Syntha-6 and have varying digestive rates. As a result, the muscles receive a steady and constant supply of protein following a workout, which can be sustained for up to eight hours. This makes BSN Syntha-6 an ideal choice for anyone looking for a long-lasting and effective protein supplement.


This premium-blend protein has also been fortified with branched-chain amino acids (BAACs) and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).


BAACs are extremely beneficial for individuals who are looking to increase their lean muscle mass, or trying to maintain muscle mass while on a calorie-deficit diet. If calories are restricted to a certain extent, the body can turn to muscle as an alternative fuel source, once fat stores have been depleted. This will lead to a reduction in muscle mass. BCAAs however, protect the muscles from being broken down by disrupting the activity in the chemical pathways that lead to muscle degradation.


MCTs are dietary fats that provide unique health benefits and have a high metabolic conversion rate. This means that once consumed, MCTs are quickly absorbed and utilised as energy substrates, meaning that they are less likely to be stored as fat and are bale to efficiently supply energy to target sites in muscle tissue.


In addition, BSN Syntha-6 is available in a variety of flavours from Banana to the more indulgent Cookies & Cream and BSN claim that it is their ‘best tasting supplement’. Therefore if you are an individual who struggles to stick to strict diets, the Syntha-6 protein powders could aid in satisfying your sweet tooth and as a result keep you on course to reaching your health and fitness goals.


In a 47g rounded scoop, the Chocolate Milkshake flavoured BSN Syntha-6 protein powder contains 22g of protein, 10g of carbohydrate and 5g of fibre making it a nutritious and multi-functional protein powder that can be consumed at any time during the day. A lack of dietary fibre is a common problem in today’s world therefore being high in fibre is a major plus for the Syntha-6 protien powder. Ultimately the BSN Syntha-6 protein powder would suit a variety of active lifestyles and diet plans but in particular, individuals looking to increase or sustain their lean muscle mass whilst shedding fat.
