It's very often a feature included in the evaluation of supplements. At first I thought about compiling a list of all the products I could find that contend they include this effect, but that could take a long time. Is protein "synthesis" a dire concern, and if so, what product do you find brings it altogether for you?

the term 'protein synthesis' is a common marketing word used by supplement companies.
however, protein synthesis is a natural process your body does regardless of supplementation. plain old food enhances to protein synthesis far more than any supplement.
to manufacture proteins, cells follow a very systematic procedure that first transcribes DNA into mRNA and then translates the mRNA into chains of amino acids.
these amino acids are necessary for many biological process in the body including structural support of cells (building muscle falls into this category).
supplementation is popular because you can provide additional help to increase or make it easier for your body to synthesize protein. whey protein comes to mind.

Thanks for the reply, reps. Do you personally use any supplements?

Man I havent heard such things since biology back in HS.
But that was more about DNA/ RNA, ribose, etc....

yes i use supplements and find them very effective to help stay healthy and fit.
most don't live up to their marketing claims....but i still find them effective. mainly because if you spend $30 on something and take it daily you will make sure your diet is good and your workouts are strong.....otherwise the supps are a complete waste.
so i feel like supps are best used as motivation tool that help you stick with the difficult workout & diet routine needed to stay in great shape.

I just finished posting on this very subject in my log re: several supps that are highly talked up on these forums & found them to be alot of hype and marketing...all exept 6-oxo..it was the only one that actually did something!
As far as protein synthesis...I agree...food and protein powders.
