Many women these days are using protein powders on a regular basis, but it can often be confusing trying to find the right protein for you.
Are you looking to gain muscle mass, lose weight, or get a meal replacement shake?
In this Syntrax Nectar review we're going to look at this protein powder that claims to be high on taste and ideal for women who are looking to lose weight.
Whey protein powders (and most supplements in general) are not always big on the taste front, and usually require being mixed with something like milk, yoghurt or ice cream (in a smoothie) in order for it to be palatable.
However, in their Nectar protein, Syntrax has managed to create a protein powder that tastes great WITHOUT even needing to be mixed … in other words you can eat straight out of the jar on your cereal or any way you want.
This is great news and a good way for women to avoid consuming any excess calories in the form of milk or other additives.
Taste really is the biggest plus point about Syntrax Nectar Protein, and women absolutely love its variety of 8 sweet flavours.
Low Calorie Profile
Another plus point of the Syntrax Nectar protein powder is its low calorie profile. At just 90 calories per serving this has to be one of the lowest calorie protein supplements on the market, and ideal for women who are conscious about their calorie intake particularly if they are on a fat loss diet.
How does it compare to many other protein powders?
Well, the popular protein shakes for gaining muscle mass will typically provide as much as 300 calories per serving, and even the "light" versions come in around 180-200 calories … so you can see that Syntrax Nectar is one of the lowest by a significant margin.
There is a large 23g of protein per scoop and ZERO carbs and fat. This is ideal for ladies who are looking to minimize calorie intake, but may not be ideal for those looking for a Meal Replacement Protein powder (MRP).
MRPs are better with a more balanced nutrition profile of protein, carbs and fats.
High Quality Protein Content
In our review of the Syntrax Nectar protein powder we discovered that the quality of the protein in the powder is also top class.
Derived from a whey protein isolate (a pure form of protein) called Promina, this is one of the fastest and easily digestible proteins available and so is quickly absorbed and used by your muscle tissue for repair and growth. The Syntrax Nectar protein also contains more bio-available amino acids than cheaper whey isolates on the market meaning that muscle tissue repair is even faster.
Many protein powders on the market can be a pain-in-the-you-what when it comes to mixing them in liquids or oatmeal etc. They often clump up and do not dissolve properly which can be frustrating and messy.
Syntrax Nectar on the other hand mixes phenomenally well into pretty much anything – water, milk, ice cream, oatmeal, cottage cheese and yoghurt.
However, it can foam up a bit, more so than some other whey proteins on the market, so this may be something to consider if you like to use a shaker or mix it heavily.
As mentioned above, the mixability while good is a little foamy, so you should take that into account.
Also, the lack of carbs and fats means that while it is great for women looking to get pure protein, it is not ideal for those looking to get a healthy meal replacement, or to use it to build muscle mass quickly.
However, Syntrax Nectar protein is great for women who are looking to get some pure healthy protein in a sweet snack which will not compromise their fat loss diet plan.
