Dear BSN, I love you #energyigniter

When Gabe and I first started our fitness journey nearly two years ago, we did a lot of research on fitness supplements. Multiple family members of his all agreed on one thing - protein powder. This is how I was first introduced to BSN in 2011 with their Syntha-6 powder. We ventured into a vitamin store and spent ten minutes agreeing on one flavor, which was a difficult task considering the selection BSN offers. In the past two years, we have purchased vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, cookies and creme and vanilla ice cream. Of those four flavors, I was partial to vanilla ice cream while Gabe was a supporter of cookies and cream. It's my go to quick breakfast, either mixed with milk or in a protein shake. Two years later and I still have a love affair with BSN Syntha-6 protein powder.

I was fortunate to get on a campaign with BSN. One day, I came home to a box of two full sized products from one of my favorite fitness brands and I couldn't have been happier. Since the product selection was my choice, it was very hard not to grab two containers of protein powder, since this was familiar to me. I needed to take this moment to try out BSN's other products and mix it up. I tried out a new flavor of Syntha-6, Chocolate Cake Batter along with their AminoX in Watermelon.

BSN Chocolate Cake Batter Syntha-6


Woah nelly. I have a confession, unless we are talking about molten lava cake, I am not a huge fan of chocolate...but Gabe is. The last time we bought Syntha-6, we ended up buying two flavors. We were unable to come to an agreement on one flavor to share. While I do not love chocolate like the next person, my favorite moment as a child was getting the coveted mixer whisk while my Mom was making chocolate cake. When I saw Syntha-6 had Chocolate Cake Batter protein powder, I knew I had to give this flavor a try. It tastes exactly like those whisks I ate as a child and still love as an adult. The chocolate cake batter was perfection and we have finally come to an agreement on a flavor, for the time being at least.

BSN Amino-X, Watermelon
Since Gabe and I started working out, we have always used a BCAA product but this was the first time I have tried AminoX from BSN. Flavor wise, you better love watermelon Jolly Ranchers if you get this flavor. Once you get past the watermelon flavor, you know you have a great produt. It was named the BCAA Supplement of the year in 2012. BSN®’s highly-anticipated entry into the amino acid market: AMINOx™ – the first Effervescent Instantized Amino Acid Endurance and Recovery Agent. AMINOx™ is designed to support: Protein Synthesis, Muscle Sparing, Recovery, Endurance.

BCAA's are and always have been a staple part of our fitness routine. I truly believe this is part of a fast recovery. It was no shock to me that BSN won the award for the 2012 BCAA supplement of the year. I am and always will be a fan of BSN!

BSN has a contest going on for the two products I reviewed above. Their contest has nothing to do with my review but thought I would give you the opportunity to enter and win! Click here for more details.
