Why I drink: Syntha 6 Ultra Premium Lean Muscle Protein Powder?

Once I heard from the Australian Nutritionist Sally Garrad that sports supplements are the icing on the top of the cake of your daily nutrition and this statement is totally truth, you can't believe that a protein powder, maltodextrine, or BCAA are substitutes of regular meal. You have to eat your carbs, protein and fluids to achieve the great performance that you are expecting and deal with the daily stress of regular life, training, family, and work.

Personally I believe that supplements are a convenient way to top up your protein and carb intake besides what you eat on your daily diet. So I don't expect miracles from any nutritional product (I've tried a LOT of them) but I firmly think that they are a good and a convenient way to take your calories on the go.

This time I'll give you my review from Syntha 6 from BSN, I been using this product from a long time for two reasons:


  1. It contains a whey protein matrix that gives you fast an slow release of protein which is important after your training session to feed your muscle and repair the damage cause by the exercise at short and long term.
  2. Tastes incredibly GOOD! And also has a little bit of carbohydrate necessary for your muscles after the workout.

Nutrition Facts Syntha-6

Another fact of Syntha 6 is that is easily digested in your gut and doesn't give you any bloating or gas problem as a lot of protein powders do. You can mix it with water, milk or you can use it to make pancakes or give a little hint of protein to your malt loaf or banana bread, you can add it to your youghurt or breakfast cereal or oatmeal.

I use it for recovery shakes after training session or as a snack or meal replacement on the go. It doesn't do miracles as I said but it's a great product to add in you daily diet. It comes in different flavors such as: Vanilla, Chocolate, Banana, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Strawbery. 
Get it on: GNC (cheapest price if you are a member, and I am not being paid for this) online or in your local nutrition store.

Verdict: 5/5 Great taste, great protein matrix, a little bit expensive compare to others whey proteins but it worth it.

Let me know what you think...
