Syntha 6 Isolate Review

syntha-6 Isolate

BSN Syntha 6 is well-known for its fantastic taste, and has become one of the world’s top selling protein powders. However, some purists have argued that it is not fast absorbing enough for post training, and contains too much carbohydrate. As a result, BSN have hit back and released it, a stronger, leaner, faster version of the regular Syntha 6.

Ingredients

The ingredients are far simpler than the regular Syntha 6. It contains a blend of two different protein isolates, whey (WPI) and milk protein. This is an industry first, in which a company has released an isolates only protein blend. The other ingredients present are just for flavouring and mixability. In each 38 g serve of Isolate, you get around 150 calories, 25 g protein, 7 g carbohydrates, and 2 g fat.

Effectiveness

It is an even better product than the regular Syntha6 for meeting your daily protein requirements. With its high whey protein isolate component, it is also excellent for post workout recovery. As with all proteins, you are unlikely to see immediate gains. However, after consistent use and training, muscle and strength gains should be expected.

Taste & Mixabilty

The regular Syntha 6 has a huge following because of its premium taste. I am happy to report that people familiar with it will not be disappointed with the taste of Syntha6. SIt tastes and mixes every bit as well as the regular Syntha 6. The texture is thick like the origina. However it is not as smooth, a characteristic of milk proteins. For those unfamiliar with the original Syntha 6, the taste of it  is amazing, probably one of the best protein powders around. However, unlike the original Syntha 6, there is currently only a limited range of three flavours. Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

Benefits

Synth 6 Isolate provides both fast (whey protein isolate) and slow release (milk protein isolate) proteins. This makes it an excellent all round protein for use immediately after training, or during the day. The fast proteins will make it into your muscles very quickly, to start rebuilding, while the slow release proteins will protect your muscles from catabolism and sustain muscle development over a longer period. This together with the awesome taste of what you would expect from BSN, makes Synth 6 Isolate a real winner.

Negatives

Despite being a protein isolate, Synth 6 is still relatively low in protein content. With the industry standard of around 90% protein for a protein isolate, it is well short of this with a mere 66% protein content. So even though Synth 6 Isolate may be sort after by many people, it may not be wanted by those wanting a purer power.

Verdict

Although it may not be the purist protein isolate available on the market, it is by far one of the best tasting. If you are looking for something that tastes just as good as the original Syntha 6, but with a fraction of the carbs, then be sure to add Syntha 6 Isolate to your next shopping list.
