Syntha-6 Ingredient Profile
Syntha-6™ Proprietary Protein Matrix:
- Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate (2-3 hour digestion rate)
- Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate (2-3 hour digestion rate)
- Egg Albumen (2-3 hour digestion rate)
- Milk Protein Concentrate (4-6 hour digestion rate)
- Calcium Caseinate (6-8 hour digestion rate)
- Micellar Alpha and Beta-Caseins and Caseinates (6-8 hour digestion rate)
Each of Syntha-6™'s proteins offers a unique and complimentary profile of amino acids and absorption rates, ensuring that your muscles never run out of protein building blocks.*
Glutamine Peptides: Glutamine peptides serve as efficient sources of glutamine for maintaining whole-body glutamine supplies, and thereby, muscle protein balance.*
Bioactive Protein Utilization Enzymes (Aminogen® and Papain): This protein utilization system promotes optimum protein digestion and absorption, improving uptake of amino acids by the muscle.*
Fiber Matrix: Fiber supports gastrointestinal health, increasing the surface area that the body can absorb nutrients across, which increases nutrient uptake and utilization.*
MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides), and EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids): MCTs are a fast-burning energy source, much like a carb. They promote the oxidation of fat over carbohydrate, and help regulate appetite. EFAs (essential fatty acids) are not produced by the body and must be consumed in order to prevent deficiency.*
Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and Essential and Non-Essential Amino Acids:Contains more than adequate amounts of every amino acid required in the human diet.
BSN's Exclusive Advanced Flavor Technology: A breakthrough in flavor technology that replicates some of the most mouthwatering shakes you have ever tasted.
Syntha-6 Frequently Asked Questions
I know that Syntha-6 has 6 different sources of protein. Exactly what are the sources and what are their individual digestion rates?
Syntha-6 contains 6 nutritionally complete and super-concentrated protein sources, which collectively foster a sustained release of amino acids. These individual protein fractions and their respective digestion rates are as follows:
- Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate – 2 to 3 Hours
- Micellar Alpha-and-Beta Caseins and Caseinates – 6 to 8 Hours
- Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate – 2 to 3 Hours
- Egg Albumen – 2 to 3 Hours
- Calcium Caseinate – 6 to 8 Hours
- Milk Protein Concentrate – 4 to 6 Hours
Please keep in mind that the digestion rate for the various protein sources listed above are quoted in general terms, and may change depending on the amount of protein consumed, and whether or not the proteins are consumed with other foods and/or micronutrients.
I am lactose-intolerant. Can I take Syntha-6?
5 of the 6 proteins contained in Syntha-6 are derived from milk; therefore, there is a degree of lactose in Syntha-6. Given your lactose intolerance condition, whether or not you can consume Syntha-6 is a question best answered by your primary care physician. He or she will be able to assess the severity of your lactose intolerance and make a recommendation. We have gotten feedback from lactose intolerant individuals who consume Syntha-6, some of whom feel no discomfort, and others who just simply need to take a lactase enzyme 30 minutes prior to consumption. Again though, regardless of that, please check with your primary care physician prior to consuming Syntha-6 if you are lactose intolerant.
Why is there 60 mg of cholesterol in Syntha-6?
The 60 mg of cholesterol found in Syntha-6 is the product of (1) the specific proteins contained within the blend and (2) the sunflower oil and medium chain triglycerides (MCT's). It's important to understand that there are two types of cholesterol, High Density Lipoproteins (HDL), typically referred to as the "Good" cholesterol, and Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL), typically referred to as the "Bad" Cholesterol. Sources of HDL cholesterol like fish and vegetable oils (unsaturated fat) have been found to raise HDL levels, while sources of bad cholesterol like the saturated fat found in red meat and palm oil tend to raise LDL levels. The fats contained in Syntha-6 are predominantly of the unsaturated variety. In fact, you'll notice that each serving of Syntha-6 contains only 2 grams of saturated fat. Regardless of that, if you do suffer from high cholesterol levels, please check with your primary care physician first before starting supplementation with Syntha-6 and engaging in an exercise program. Your physician will be able to offer the best advice as to whether or not Syntha-6 has a place in your diet.
