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.*

  • 9 Blue Raspberry Ice

High quality bcaa powder. Blue raspberry flavor is great. Mixes easily. Single scoop with about 20 ounces of water and poured over a glass of ice cubes yields a delicious drink. Sweet and refreshing. Tastes like a blue raspberry freeze pop or Popsicle. One of the best flavors in the original XTEND line.

  • 9 Watermelon Explosion

The other raters are right: you need to find a flavor you like. Me, I really like the watermelon... I used this product for a long time, then thought I’d try the “best” product from our local supplement shop. Went through 2 or 3 different ones, and I’m back to Xtend. For me, it just works much better than the competitors.

Great product but just choose a flavor that you think you’ll like. These ratings are not spot on. I have no idea how lemon lime squeeze got such a high rating, blue raspberry ice is a lot better in my opinion.

This was an absolute horrible choice of flavor. It reminds me of forcing liquid medicine down my throat as a kid. Do not get the Strawberry Kiwi splash. I bought 90 servings of it and am going to have to give or throw it away. It's awful

Kind of a bland flavor - Glacial Grape. I choose Blueberry or Tropic Thunder over this flavor.

Whoever implemented change of flavor should be fired! Why would you turn something perfect into something disgusting? Take the customer reviews to heart. I’ve been with you for nine years now. I recommended your product to my clients, family & friends weekly. I’m not sure where to go from here.... I’m disappointed to say the least.

Had previously used the lemon squeeze liked it pretty well saw good reviews for the grape flavor decided to try it to give myself some variety. Its good but may have to use it a little while longer to feel better about its flavor. Over all I definitely like the product though

Mango Madness reminded me of a mango drink. Its soo great during training, getting those bcaas, l glutamine, citrulline malate, and electrolytes in , and at other times as well, like in between meals . Xtend nail it again with this flavor and it makes during cardio, functional fitness, physical therapy first thing on an empty stomach fantastic.

For the fun of it I read about 15 reviews and can't believe not one mentioned the benefits of using this great product. I've used it for years, during weight training and spinning (we cycle actually using lots of tension so not really considered spinning) and it helps me a great deal for endurance, energy and recovery. The taste is secondary so why these reviews only rate its taste is not worthy of reading. Any fitness enthusiast is looking for great results from products; taste is secondary although important, not primary.

  • 9 Freedom Ice

I had the opportunity to try this out, and was really excited for the flavor. I have never had a treat like Freedom Ice depicts, so I had no expectations with the flavor. I measured 2 scoops for 40 oz of cold water. This seemed to be the perfect ratio. I found the flavor to be very interesting, and I tasted a combination of blue raspberry and citrus. It seems odd, but it really worked. I am going to make a slushie with it very soon, because I think it might be like a sno-cone. Overall very happy with the flavor, and I highly recommend!

  • 10 Lemon-Lime Squeeze

Bought this two weeks ago and had multiple servings so far. It is definitely at the top of my most favorite flavors of BCAA from XTend. I never tried the original Lemon Lime, so I am not comparing this to the original flavor. The taste of this Lemon Lime Squeeze is delicious and refreshing. It will taste like a glass of cold water with two lemons and a lime squeezed in there, and some Splenda on top of that. I totally enjoyed it. My favorite taste was at 2 scoops mixed in about 36oz of water with a few ice cubes in there. Do you like Gatorade? If you do, then you will like this for sure!
