What You Should Know
Syntha-6 is a whey protein product meant for body builders, though it claims to promote lean muscle development. Should BSN’s Syntha-6 product be used for overall weight loss? We doubt it, but we will take a closer look. The product website does not market this product for weight loss purposes.
List of Ingredients
The Syntha-6 comes in the form of a powder that is mixed with water to create a protein drink. Besides being a good source of protein, it may have antioxidant benefits which will boost the immune system. It may even have anti-carcinogenic (cancer fighting) properties. In terms of weight loss, it is best considered for its protein content and the fact that many people have had weight loss success using low carbohydrate, high protein diets.
The product website states that Syntha-6 “contains BCAA’s (for nitrogen balance), Glutamine peptides (recovery, immune system), MCT’s (fast energy) and fiber (digestive support)” It is available in eight flavors and is suitable for multiple uses throughout the day without disturbing sleep patterns.
A 2.91 pound supply, which offers 30 scoops is $45.99 plus shipping and handling on the BSN website. This is a sufficient one month supply, only if you use it once a day. Those who use it more than once a day are faced with a much more expensive venture. Trial packs that contain five different flavors are available for $9.99 plus shipping and handling for those who are interested in trying the product before making an expensive purchase.
- Whey protein has several potential ways to improve health.
- No mention of a satisfaction guarantee.
- No user testimonials are posted for others to see.
- No clear cut connection to the ingredients and weight loss.
Unless you plan on using it as a meal replacement shake, this will probably not offer you too many weight loss benefits. As a meal replacement shake, Syntha-6 would be a very expensive option as compared to some other products for this purpose, and cut out some necessary nutrients. For weight loss, you need a supplement that addresses both fat burning and appetite suppression, combined with a healthy diet and exercise routine.
