BSN has many popular supplements due to high quality and heavy advertising. One of their top selling products is their protein formula called Syntha-6. They just came out with a new formula called Syntha-6 Isolate.
Why Whey Isolate?
The original Syntha 6 contains a mix of Whey Protein Concentrate [Milk], Whey Protein Isolate [Milk], Calcium Caseinate [Milk], Micellar Casein [Milk], Milk Protein Isolate [Milk], And Egg Albumin [Egg]. Mainly whey protein concentrate is the major ingredient here where as in the new BSN Syntha-6 isolate, whey protein isolate is the main ingredient.
The primary difference between isolate and concentrate is that the isolate is more pure. In other words, isolate contains more protein with less fat and lactose per serving. Based on whose figures you go by, whey isolate usually contains between 90-94% protein while whey concentrate has a protein ratio of 70-85%. Isolate is also the fastest form of protein, it hits your muscles the quickest. That is why a lot of companies seem to be coming out with 100% isolate products. That being said, the isolate protein is more expensive than the concentrate.
It is always important when reading the supplement facts to focus your attention on the first ingredient listed under ingredients because that is the main ingredient in the formula. In this case Whey Protein isolate are milk protein isolate are first which is good since that is what the product claims to be. The regular gold standard optimum 100% whey contains isolates and concentrates so it takes longer for the protein to digest and reach the muscles. Which is why they came out with the new HydroWhey which is 100% isolate. And not to mention more expensive like most isolate proteins.
This product looks to be very promising, 25 grams of protein, low carbs, low calories, low fat. Seems like a good option for those trying to maintain lean muscle and boost recovery time. Whether or not spending the extra money to get all 100% isolates is up to the consumer. Is it worth it or not? Try it out for yourself and see if there is a difference.
