Hmm, I used No-Synthesize as a post-workout product a while ago and I have mixed feelings about the product.
Effects: yes it did have a certain effect, I felt less sore the next day and my muscles felt way 'fuller' especially my biceps, so not much to complain about here. Of course the pump disappears to a certain extend when you discontinue using it, but that is the same with any creatin product. I could also feel a nice beta-alanine tingle which suggests decent amounts of it per serving.
Taste: Grape bubblegum really tasted like hubba-bubba, not my thing for a shake but fair enough. No stomach problems whatsoever.
So why no definite recommendation? The reason is the - in my book - quite shady ingredients list. Prop blend in itself are a problem but when you sum up the different proprietary blends here, one serving adds up to roughly 30g. However you are meant to get all this in one scoop of 21g, so something must be wrong here.
It might be that the "protein matrix" is overlapping with the "amino acid matrix" so that the first supplies amino acids for the latter, but how much amino acids or protein do you really get? Judging by the volume of one scoop it cannot be more than 10 or 12g. I've emailed VPX several times to clarify the matter but didn't get a response.
That's why I am not sure about the product, especially whether you really get enough of the key ingredients for a postworkout shake such as EAAs. So when you get a good deal on it, why not but don't rely on it for your post-workout purposes alone.
