Xtend® The Original

For over 10 years, XTEND® has been making the best recovery products in the world. The award-winning XTEND® Original formula is powered by 7 grams of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which have been clinically shown to support muscle repair, recovery, and growth. XTEND® Original also contains a unique blend of hydrating electrolytes and additional performance ingredients to help you refuel, repair, and recover.*

The three BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. It's important to note that many BCAA formulas contain only 5 grams of BCAAs per serving, which means they may lack enough leucine to effectively stimulate muscle protein synthesis (MPS). Every serving of XTEND® Original contains 3.5 grams of leucine to stimulate MPS, as well as 1.75 grams each of isoleucine and valine, in the research-backed 2:1:1 ratio found in nature.*

Whatever your fitness goal, training style, or sport of choice, XTEND® can help you train harder, recover faster, and get back in the game sooner. Try all the sugar-free, zero-calorie, mouthwatering flavors of XTEND® Original to fuel your fitness goals.*

Great intraworkout supplement! I tried the blood orange and it tastes like a orange grapefruit juice. This helped me stay hydrated and assisted with my long endurance workouts.

Got to hand it to Scivation, another great flavor of Xtend BCAAs - Lemon-Lime Squeeze. I'd say it's a little heavier on the lemon than lime, but it's not overpowering. It seems to mimic lemonade (with a slice of lime) fairly well. This will probably make my rotation of Xtend flavors!

Xtend is a staple in my supplements at the gym and they do sales on them so often I can keep it stocked for the gym and use it every day. Mixes very well and the taste is always good and strong!

Tremendous taste, Scivation is always good for that as well as mixability. Don't need a whisk ball, spoon, etc., it'll be fine in just water + a bottle. Price is comparable to competition, but you get more grams of BCAA per serving. Some cheaper products have fewer grams, which is a hit or miss point to consider. However, this has always been my go-to.

The flavor is spot on here! Tastes like gatorade with the obvious added benefits like the citrulline malate and taurine which helps you get through that tiring workout. With this supp, I always feel hydrated in the gym and the taste of this just makes it that much easier to drink. I toss 1.5-2 scoops into my 64oz flask and it helps keep me going throughout my whole workout not to mention it's sooo refreshing on a hot day. I'm a sucker for lemon lime drinks so this beat the blood orange for me, haha. Definitely gonna purchase more when I'm done!

Mix very well. Does the job. Flavour nice, however, waaaay too strong for my liking, but I don't like any sweet drinks. I need to add twice as much water as recommended. Overall, I definitely recommend that product and I'm going to try other flavours.

Xtend was the first BCAA supplements I've ever used. I can't honestly tell if it actually aids in my recovery (I'll need to try a month with and without to really have a good comparison), but the flavored BCAAs taste AMAZING.
