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.*

I have tried this product and I can't get too much of it down. The taste is very chalky and bitter. I have since used Optimum Nutrition AmiN.O. Energy and love it!!

I have been using these bcaas for a while now and love how they help during and after my workouts. I can feel a difference on days I forget to bring with me. Mixes great with water. I’ve tried Pineapple, Strawberry Kiwi, Green apple which were all good, but the Strawberry Mango is hands down my favorite.

Product is really good. Really helps with body water levels. Blood Orange is the best flavor, If you don't like citrus then don't buy the orange. Grape is not so convincing. Grape has higher flavor rating but didn't meet my expectations. It's a bit too sweet. Green Apple is a good one too. not too sweet not too sour.

This product is insaaanely sweet! I have to dilute it to be able to swallow it through my workout. Doesn't even taste like mango, it's basically cotton candy. I don't think it's helped with my recovery either so I wouldn't repurchase this.

The taste of blood orange is better than I was expecting. I like this flavor better than green apple or lemon-lime.

I have used XTend BCAA products for at least one year and I tried different flavors. This is probably my most favorite Intra and Post supplement. The FLAVOR will not disappoint, with Blood Orange and Grape at the top of the list for me. I also liked the Strawberry Mango and the Tangerine. The Watermelon and the Pink Lemonade I didn’t care much for, but I read other reviews where people liked those, so it’s simply a personal taste. The MIXABILITY is good, with no residue in the mixture, though there will be some initial foam at the top of your glass. The PROFILE is outstanding, with very generous dosing of ingredients that will help you with hydration and quicker recovery. The PRICE is good, at about $1/scoop. OVERALL, I am very happy with this and I will continue to return to it again and again.

This is one of the best BCAA products on the market and never disappoints! It includes electrolytes, proper amino ratio, added glutamine, and citrulline malate. Xtend is very affordable compared to other products and they even have sales to make it an even lower price quite frequently. The powder mixes perfectly and doesn't leave extra residue or powder on the shaker. It comes in a ton of flavors to cater to anyone's taste preferences. There is even an unflavored option that is natural without any dyes, etc. and can be added to anything. Compared to not taking this product I noticed increased recovery and less fatigue while working out. I mix it with 15-20 oz of water and it tastes perfect, less water increases the flavor so be sure to experiment with the water amount. The fruit punch is one of the best fruit punch flavors i've had and reminds me of kool-aid. The watermelon also tastes great and reminds me of a jolly rancher, it's not too sweet or sour. Blue raspberry is not sour and tastes sweet, delicious, and like a Popsicle blue raspberry is the perfect blue raz flavoring. I would recommend this to anyone looking to increase recovery in a delicious way!
