SYNTHA-6 is one of BSN's 3 proprietary protein blends and growing fast in popularity due to it's great flavors and number of cool features. SYNTHA-6 gets its name from the 6 different protein and amino acid sources used as the foundation of this protein: Whey Protein Concentrate, Micellar Alpha-and-Beta Caseins and Caseinates, Whey Protein Isolate, Egg Albumen, Calcium Caseinate and Milk Protein Concentrate. Each of these protein sources has unique benefits so having them all in one product is ideal. By combining fast releasing whey proteins with slower releasing egg and casein proteins, you'll get a steady sustained delivery of protein to your muscles. This is preferable to large doses of whey protein which absorb quickly, so quickly that it may not all be utilized. SYNTHA-6 does contain substantial amounts of whey protein but the presence of other, slower-releasing proteins mean that you won't need or want another protein shake within just an hour or two of your whey shake.
Protein combinations like these are usually found in MRP's and weight gainers, but those products have a much heavier feel to them and nutritionally, they aren't what a lot of people are looking for. SYNTHA-6 has a light and very drinkable texture and none of the heaviness of a weight gainer or MRP shake. That's helped by the added digestive enzymes in SYNTHA-6, which further protect you from that heavy bloat which sometimes occurs when you consume a large serving of protein. Although you'd never know it just by the taste and mouth feel, there is somehow 5 grams of fiber in SYNTHA-6, which is a huge plus. If there is one nutrient everyone can use more of, it's definitely fiber. That 5 grams is about 1/5 of your total minimum daily requirement for fiber in one scoop and will help to keep you satisfied if and when you need your SYNTHA-6 shake to hold you over until your next meal or shake.
