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.


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 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.*

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.

I agree with the others on these reviews, its a great product... when you actually get a flavor. I got unflavored to stack with others and it significantly changed the flavor profile. No matter what you add the "RAW" Unflavored to, immediately changes it to "Booty Flavor", to the point of gagging. I saw someone say they added the "RAW" to another flavor to balance it out, this is simply impossible. If there was a "****" flavor this would be it. Next time I will just purchase another flavor and take it alone.

This product does not disappoint. The electrolytes give you a ton of extra energy during your workout. This is the only brand I'll be using for a while! Their pre-workout is super decent as well, and am definitely going to try their protein line when I run out of my current stuff.

Green apple tasted pretty nice. It as more candish, then a real green apple. Pretty sweet, not sour and with a slight typical bcaa aftertaste. Blue raspberry tasted like a typical blue razz flavor. Mango & pineapple were my favorites, both tasted like real juices. Watermelon was also candish, but didn't enjoy it that much. Mixed very well, no residues.

Scivation was so incredibly generous that i was able to try this product. Their Xtend BCAA with glacial grape flavor. Lets start with the flavor. Normally i've never been a big fan of grape flavor, they always taste artificial to me. However the glacial grape tasted awesome. Very refreshing. Love drinking it during my workouts to give my water more flavor and also to give me more energy through out my workout. If you're a fan of grape, you'll definitely love it. Flavor 9/10. Scivation is the leading brand in BCAA so you already know you're getting the best BCAA product you can buy. You can't go wrong. 7 grams of BCAA, 0 calories 0 sugar. Perfect 10/10. Overall 9.5/10

This is such a great product in the intra workout catagory. It contains everything you need, the 2:1:1 proven ratio of Leucine to Isoleucine and Valine along with a dose of Glutamine. The added electrolyte blend and Citrulline Malate is what really sits this product apart from other BCAA blends. Taste is outstanding but I really would prefer them to use natural sweeteners and colors instead of the artificial. Other than that, this product keeps you well hydrated, energized, and keeps the pump from your pre-workout going strong with the Citrulline.

I use BCAAs to assist in muscle recovery and energy. I generally drink a scoop in the morning and a scoop throughout my workout. These are by far the best tasting BCAAs I have tried! They are sweet, so I tend to put 1 scoop in my large 32oz water bottle to mellow out the flavor. The Watermelon tastes exactly like a watermelon Jolly Rancher, while the Strawberry Mango tastes almost like strawberry iced tea.

  • 10 Watermelon

Honestly I've only ever had the watermelon, I use 2 scoops per shaker, sipping throughout my workouts making sure to keep the shaker filled, never letting it get below half. Free form amino's at their finest, excellent profile and no doubt the recovery, the performance and the results are there. Free form aminos are essential and I would say if you were going to choose only one supplement I would say BCAA intra-workout. Watermelon tastes exactly like a jolly rancher, well done. I have no doubt the other flavors are amazing but I love my watermelon!!!

Great product! I take it during my workouts and it really prevents soreness the next day. Fruit punch isn’t the best flavor, but I definitely recommend this product.
