Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to establish an effective non-vanishing theorem for the syzygies of an adjoint-type line bundle on a smooth variety as the positivity of the embedding increases. Our purpose here is to show that for an adjoint-type divisor $ B = K_X+ bA$ with $ b \geq n+1$, one can obtain an effective statement for arbitrary $ X$ which specializes to the statement for Veronese syzygies in the paper ``Asymptotic Syzygies of Algebraic Varieties'' by Ein and Lazarsfeld. We also give an answer to Problem 7.9 in that paper in this setting.
