BSNBSN® : Finish First

BSN is endorsed by several people in the world of fitness and nutrition. These include Adrienne Ochoo (IFBB Pro Bikini Competitor), Arron Sain (celebrity chef), Scott Herman (YouTube fitness star), and Dr. Teddy Willsey (physical therapist and strength coach).

The BSN range includes protein powders, pre-workouts, and recovery/performance products. The marketing for N.O.-Xplode states the brand was “the pre-workout category creator”. But while this is a debated claim, N.O.-Explode is very popular – and almost certainly it’s the best-known supplement. It comes in five flavors: ‘Blue Raz’, ‘Watermelon’, ‘Green Apple’, ‘Fruit Punch’, and ‘Grape’.

Another top-selling BSN product is Syntha-6 – an “ultra-premium blended protein formula”, which the brand says, “tastes like ice cream” and “mixes like a milkshake”. The original version of Syntha-6 is available in nine flavors, including ‘Banana’, Chocolate Cake Batter’, ‘Pumpkin Pie’, and ‘Peanut Butter Cookie’.

Other versions of this product include Syntha-6 Edge (which contains more protein and fewer carbs), and Syntha-6 Isolate, which “combines the advantages of both fast and slow digesting protein sources”.
