Do You Use Protein Supplements? (Giveaway)

I am a strong believer in Protein Supplements when it comes to both running, lifting, and workouts of any type that deplete or tear up my muscles.  In the research I have done over the years I have come to the personal conclusion that Protein Supplements are for more than just getting big muscles and make the use of them a regular part of my routine.

I have used plenty of different brands and kinds of Protein Supplements over the years, some that I have liked, and some that were so disgusting that I took them back were I bought them and demanded my money back.  I was using a brand that I have been very happy with lately, when I was contacted on behalf of BSN Suppliments with an opportunity to try their SYNTHA-6™ Product.

I am not sure how you tell without an extended use and very specific comparison tools how well a product like this stacks up against another similar products.  I can, however, tell you that based on the protein content (20g), the amino acids (which all runners are looking for), and the other key ingredients that this will easily compare to the other products on the market that I have tried.

I know it shouldn't be one of the big deciding factors for supplements, but I have to say that SYNTHA-6 is by far the best tasting Protein Supplement I have ever tasted.  I have tried mixing it both with water and milk, and every time I try the chocolate and vanilla I have been very happy with the smoothness and richness.

SYNTHA-6 is a multi-function protein supplement, comprised of BSN’s proprietary blend of six proteins for sustained protein absorption. BSN’s protein supplements distinguish themselves with the unmatched taste, quality, and well rounded nutrients for supporting protein synthesis and muscle growth. SYNTHA-6 is a powerful arrangement of complete proteins, branched chain amino acids, essential fatty acids, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. SYNTHA-6 is available as an easily mixable powder or in ready-to-drink (RTD) formats.
