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.*

Freedom ice is my new favorite, can’t go wrong with a 20oz of water, ice , and this. Perfect in the morning to rehydrate and give something refreshing while fasting before breakfast. Lemon lime taste just like a yellow Gatorade , great to have after a cardio session , refreshing!

I wish you guys sold a unflavored version. This flavor tasted insanely sweet like candy. But the thing that I hated the most about this product was the acid reflux it caused on my body, it caused me to cough excessively. I think it might be to the amount of fake sugar that is in it or heavy food coloring. My wife loves it so I didn't chuck it, but as for me, it is a no go. Not going to win them all I guess, onto the next brand.

Great product overall. Grape is good, but the old grape flavor was much better. Also, PLEASE STOP WITH ALL THE ARTIFICIAL COLORS - NOT NECESSARY.

This flavor tastes disgusting. I would not recommend. It tastes like drinking an Emergen-C vitamin C packet. Leaves a horrible taste in your mouth afterwards. Amino Energy - Orange Cooler is so much better.

I haven't used BCCA's in a while and got a tub of Xtend and quickly remember why I use to use them! I absolutely love it. It mixes extremely well. There is no left over residue or "floaties." As for taste, I like the Lemon-Lime Squeeze. It's not too sweet and not too tart. I do think each person will have to play with how much water they mix with it to get the taste they enjoy the best. For me, I would mix two scoops in a half gallon jug and drink. I tried 1 scoop in a shaker bottle, but I didn't like that as much so I did it this way. As far as effects, well I just felt much more refreshed throughout the day especially around my workouts. Overall, Xtend is great!

If your someone that uses BCAAs or an Intraworkout, I would certainly recommend Blood Orange and Tropic Thunder flavors of XTend. Both flavors are spot on! Blood Orange tasted exactly like one and Tropic Thunder tasted like a Pina colada. Price is $24.99 for 30 servings and $59.99 for the 90 serving which are both fairly priced. Would buy again for both flavor!

Blood orange Xtend is the best tasting BCAA supp ever. Its nice and mild, not too sweet. All the other ones are either too sweet, or they taste like artificial sweeteners. I use it while working out after my warm up. Good stuff, guys!

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.

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.
