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.*

This was the worst product I had ever used. Didn't show much results and possible side effects with this brand. For Indian users I recommend Proburst BCAA Supreme. It has a great formulation with promising raw materials and world Class manufacturing facility. I started to see the difference in 2-3 days. And the best part was no side effects observed at all unlike Xtend

I have bought this product for several years now, and they have recently changed the formula. It’s awful! Go back to the old formula!

Blood Orange is 100% yuk to me. Grape is ok tasting but too intense or something at full serving. Won't purchase again.

I have purchased the Blood Orange for many years and always used Xtend, but it seems like mix has been changed. All the flavors now have a funny plastic or wax taste. Not buying anymore until old mix is brought back. Now I have to find a new brand :(

I have used Xtend since 2006, give or take. I usually purchase Glacier Grape but decided to go with Blood Orange, YUCK!! It Tastes like PLASTIC! Maybe I got a bad batch? It really tastes toxic like plastic had been ground up in the mix.

I have been using Scivation products for a while now and really like them. I feel like they are more effective than other similar products I have used (no way to validate, but the way I feel seems to indicate as such). I have used four different flavors and find that the citrus flavors tend to quench my thirst, especially while working out. The Strawberry Mango flavor really didnt sit well with me. I cant put my finger on it, but the flavor really didnt taste right. The Tropic Thunder flavor is quite good but when I mix other unflavored supplements in (nitrous), something happens to the flavor which makes it taste metallic. Whereas the other flavors didnt seem to do that. Blood Orange and Lemon-Lime are by far my favorites and tend to be my regular re-orders.

  • 10 Blue Raspberry Ice

Ran out of my usual intraworkout and won this in a contest, mixes well, tastes great . Only side effect is less soreness after workout/next day and I take in a lot more liquid during my workouts which is a good thing. The taste really sets this one apart from the cheap brands, highly recommend this BCAA!

I was always ordering 30 scopes version, generally I have tried several flavours of this product (30 scopes) and all were tasty. On my last order, I ordered a 90 scope option with mango taste, but this one is totally tasteless, and I even afraid the quality of supplement is lower than before.

  • 10 Blue Raspberry Ice

I have been an avid user of blue raspberry Xtend for many years. I had the opportunity to try the blue raspberry ice flavor and was very surprised and how much I enjoyed it. The sweetness was not overwhelming and the blue raspberry flavor was very complex. It was something that I could definitely drink two or three times a day. Not only did I get to enjoy this supplement taste wise, but I had the extra Bcaa’s throughout the day to help with doms and to keep me in a positive nitrogen balance. I have been drinking Xtend for nearly a decade, and do not see myself stopping anytime soon. I feel like I should expand out and try other flavors, but the blue raspberry and blue raspberry ice are out of this world; I guess I couldn’t go wrong with other flavor since these two are so good.

Ill simply start by saying this- when it comes to a BCAA drink, NOTHING TOPS BLOOD ORANGE........ NOTHING! The flavor is just amazing, its a perfect orange flavor and if I had to choose only one flavor ever....... this would be it without any angst. Xtend has been making great flavored amino drinks that I find myself taking daily... as a Pre/intra/post drink or with blood orange...... just be-freaking-cause. Im not into super sugary drinks and I usually drink these guys with 40+oz a scoop and it still tastes great. If youre in the market for an amino drink Xtend should be on the top of your list as they have a perfectly dosed product and their flavors cant be beat! Heck even the price is great to boot! Freedom Ice (Think old school bomb pop) is next on my list.

By far my favorite amino product on the market. Not only for flavor, but for the dosing as well. 3.5g leucine, 2.5g glutamine, 1g citrulline, electrolytes, 7g BCAA's. Whenever someone thinks aminos-think Xtend! #1 in my book.
