XTEND FREE

XTEND FREE is the same XTEND formula with all natural flavors, colors, and sweeteners and is the perfect solution for those looking to avoid certain ingredients.

XTEND RTD

Ready-to-drink & calorie-free, XTEND RTD delivers more BCAAs than 25 grams of whey protein, and refreshes hard-working muscles with electrolytes, Taurine and Citruline Malate, making XTEND RTD the convenient and muscle-supporting BCAA solution.*

BUILD & PRESERVE MUSCLE*

Build and preserve muscle with 7 GRAMS of hypercritical BCAAs — in the nature-designed and widely-researched 2:1:1 ratio — along with Glutamine and Citrulline Malate. Plus, with a proprietary blend of hydration-promoting electrolytes, Scivation XTEND is the delicious, refreshing, SUGAR-FREE way to help anyone grind through a grueling gym session.*

Perfect Before, After, and During Training

World-class athletes, elite bodybuilders, champion powerlifters, and weight-training enthusiasts of varying types all use Scivation XTEND during their workouts to help them train longer, harder, and with more intensity.* When consuming two servings daily, Scivation XTEND helps to facilitate both fat loss* and new muscle construction.* Also, by orchestrating optimal protein synthesis and by balancing the intracellular energy economy, Scivation XTEND severely truncates recovery time.*

Branched Chain Amino Acids, Not Just Essential Amino Acids

Scivation XTEND contains 7grams of branched-chain amino acids per serving. No hiding, no tricks, no "padding" from cheap or completely random amino acids. Each serving of Scivation XTEND contains 3.5 grams of Leucine to stimulate muscle protein synthesis plus 1.75 grams of Valine and 1.75 grams of Isoleucine.*

2:1:1 Ratio Designed by Nature, Proven by Research

Nearly all of the reputable peer-reviewed studies that have highlighted the effectiveness of BCAAs — along with most of the anecdotal information that has sprung forth from the hardcore weight rooms — have investigated a 2:1:1 Leucine to Valine to Isoleucine formula. So despite a starring role for Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine are still vitally important to a multitude of the physique benefits that come from BCAAs.

One noteworthy study investigated muscle protein synthesis from either Leucine on its own or from BCAAs at a 2:1:1 ratio. College-age, recreationally-trained male participants received a straight Leucine supplement, a 2:1:1 BCAA supplement, or a non-caloric placebo before and after a leg workout. As to be expected, Leucine performed better than did the placebo, but the 2:1:1 BCAA ratio bested them both.

Valine & Isoleucine - Vitally Important as Well

Additionally, in an attempt to dazzle you with numbers, some lopsided amino formulas drop the amounts of Valine and Isoleucine in favor or Leucine - a critical mistake - which ends up smothering some other very important benefits. For one, Valine competes with Tryptophan for uptake into the brain, and a brain soaked in Tryptophan will have a much hard time relaying the message to the muscles that they need to work harder and push more weight. Furthermore, in a Japanese study, scientists observed a fat-burning mechanism dependent upon Isoleucine. Subjects who consumed more supplemental Isoleucine gained less body fat than those who did not, even though both groups ate a high-fat diet.

So when it comes to getting the most out of your workouts, whether it be triggering post-workout muscle protein synthesis, thwarting fatigue, or stoking the fat-burning flames, a 2:1:1 BCAA ratio — the same ratio in Scivation XTEND — is the way to go.*

After 10 Years, Still Defining - and Redefining - BCAAs

Scivation XTEND, the originator and leader in BCAA technology, is the trusted brand credited with creating the first BCAA intra-workout drink mix. With over a decade devoted to improving and perfecting the formula – best-in-class flavors, show-stopping mixability, and fully-disclosed ingredients in relevant amounts – Scivation XTEND continues to outpace comparison. There's nothing like it.

Use Scivation XTEND, the original and most widely-used intra-workout BCAA product, to build muscle, burn fat, and to prolong the intensity of - and recovery from - your next workout.*

This is my 2nd order and I've been very pleased with it. I definitely tell a difference in soreness if I have been drinking this or not. I typically drink one during the day and one during my workout. I've been using this as part of a new workout regime so I can't say this has solely contributed to my progress, but it's part of my routine and I've seen great progress and gains with less sore days.

Everybody knows that this is the best BCAA but I'm here to rate the flavors. Grape and Blue Raspberry are cool as usual nothing new but the Mango is so amazing! so nostalgic! The best flavor I've ever tasted in any supp. الكل يعلم أنه من أفضل أنواع البي سي اي اي ولكن سأقيم النكهات. العنب والتوت كالعادة ممتازين ولكن المانجا أفضل نكهة تذوقتها بالمكملات الغذائية

Been using this product for 5 weeks now after switching from BPI Best BCAA. 1RM just keeps climbing across the board. This stuff is legit I promise. Update: Scivation Xtend is the leader in BCAA supplements, IMO. I've been using it exclusively for a while now, my wife and I even quit drinking soda and sip on Xtend all day. I have no reason to try any other BCAA supplier as I have constantly seen gains, endurance and recovery while using this. Plus their flavor profiles are top notch.
