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 is not the same as the old watermelon flavor. The "watermelon explosion" one tastes like chalk.

I've been buying this product-grape flavor for about 6 years and always loved it. I just purchased a new one with this new look and new formula. I read a lot of reviews here before doing so and was praying to god the taste wouldn't be different but sure enough, it was. it stinks. not enjoyable at all. really disappointed, don't know why they changed things with the product. i won't be buying it again, that's for sure.

Why did Scivation change their perfect taste formula? For years, they succeeded at making BCAAs taste great. It tastes CHALKY now, just like all the other BCAA companies I got free samples from. Please go back to the original.

  • 1 Mango Madness

I have been using mango madness Xtend for years. Luckily I stocked up on the old formula but recently ran out and placed an order on bb.com. I should have known from the flavor rating drop that it would no longer be the same but I decided to give it a try. The new mango madness formula is absolutley disgusting. I can't even drink it and will be returning the 2 containers that I purchased. I guess I'm going back to BPI Best BCAAs for now.

I don't know why there are many people dislike the lastest bad review on Xtend. I have to say, as a customer of Xtend for over three years. The latest favor change has such a bad result. I have no idea why would they change the formula. Right now the Grape is still okay but not as good anymore, the orange, apple, fruit punch and blue raspberry has such strong plastic taste in the drink and it is now Xtend anymore. I'd rather drink plain water during workout than this. Please, if you can't make the original flavor better, just bring the old formula back.

What the HELL!!!! This flavour was one of the best ones ever, including other brands...Why, Why did you change the formule Scivation???? Giving it a 10 as the product itself is still optimum for ingredients, but this flavour was a 10 before the change in formula; no a "1". PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL FORMULA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been using XTEND BCAAs for ages but my last tub (90 Servings Watermelon Explosion) was awful, it tasted like plastic. Im guessing since there is a new look to the product the formula has changed. I would really like to buy the old stuff as it was amazing. Unfortunately until the formula is back to the original I will definitely not buy again.

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
