XTEND FREE

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.

XTEND RTD

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 & PRESERVE MUSCLE*

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 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.*

  • 10 Watermelon
  • 10 Strawberry Mango

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.

I purchased this product started taking it. It bothers my stomach. I have taken other amino acid supplements with no problem. Very disappointed.

  • 8 Freedom Ice

Freedom Ice blends to a dark blue in a shaker cup. As with all Xtend flavors, I had no trouble blending this product. I prefer to use either a funnel and water bottle or a shaker cup. (Side Note: Thanks to Scivation Lead for the hook-up with the Cellucor Shaker Cup along with the tub of Freedom Ice. It was a very nice gesture!) As far as the flavor goes, the flavor is very good. The initial sip hits you with a strong flavor combo, of blue raspberry and cherry. There is a tartness to the flavor that I can’t quite pinpoint. I know Bomb Pops are comprised of blue raspberry, cherry, and lime, but I’m not sure it’s lime that I’m tasting. With that being said, I would say they definitely came close to nailing this flavor as far as matching the Bomb Popsicles. To me, the blue raspberry flavor overpowers a little bit too much, but I do like the flavor. Because the flavor is so strong, you should never have to two scoop Freedom Ice unless you just use a TON of water. One scoop is all you need. I agree with others when I say that there’s been several times, I would add Xtend for just a flavor booster when I get sick of plain water. I still have to say that Blood Orange is my absolute favorite flavor from Scivation, but Freedom Ice is definitely a homerun. There was a season when I caught myself going through several scoops a day of Blood Orange, and I’m sure that there will be people that treat Freedom Ice the same way. Many people will enjoy this, and it’s for sure a contender with the other top flavors. I can't say enough how much I love Xtend, and most of you already know the profile is great. With Xtend, you’re going to get a very good dosage and ratio of BCAAs. This product has a 2:1:1 ratio (Leucine: Isoleucine:Valine). Each scoop also has added electrolytes along with glutamine and citrulline. In a supplement world, where BCAAs are constantly flooding the market, do yourself a favor and try Scivation Xtend. I originally wanted to include this flavor review with my previous Xtend flavor reviews, but I can't access some of my old ones to edit, so I'll list Freedom Ice with my reviews of the other flavors below. • 8/10 Freedom Ice • 10/10 Blood Orange • 8/10 Blue Raspberry • 6/10 Fruit Punch • 8/10 Grape • 9/10 Green Apple • 7/10 Mango • 6/10 Pineapple • 7/10 Pink Lemonade • 8/10 Strawberry Mango • 8/10 Watermelon

  • 10 Blood Orange

I just bought this and have taken it 4 times since the purchase. The Blood Orange tastes great. This is subjective but I don't find it overly sweet like some of the other products out there. I mix one scoop in a 750 ml bottle but you could easily mix it with 1 litre and it would still taste great. If you like oranges you will enjoy this flavor. I find I have tons of energy through my workouts using Xtend. I would buy this again for sure.

  • 7 Lemon Lime

A good product for intra and post work out. But be careful with the hydration blend. When I took it on a none workout day, I have a mineral socked in my hydration system. Caused me to be dizzy, over heart rate, and confusion. Took it when you really need it, when dehydrated and post or intra-workout . Good taste !!

  • 10 RAW - Unflavored
  • 10 Blood Orange

I bought the Blood Orange & UNflavored to balance the excessive sweetness of the flavored options. It reduces soreness & prolongs endurance. I had an amazing workout today, lasted 4hrs w/o fatigue!! I could of gone more, if i didn't have to go to Costco. It was such a beautiful, sunny day & the gym wasn't packed & i had enough energy after my 2mile run, so i decided to lift as long as i could. AND i just wanted to see how long it took til i burned out, but honestly i could of gone beyond 4, i felt great!!!! Usually, I last an avg of ~ 2hrs, so I'm sold on this product & happy they offer unflavored too.

Really love the Xtend line. This was my first flavor of this series and I thought it was pretty good. The ingredient profile is great and love the added electrolytes for added hydration which is what everyone needs! 0 carbs and 0 actual sugars are a . The one thing I don’t like (me being picky) is the Sucralose. I would like to see Stevia instead but that’s just me. Coconut water powder is another in my book!

  • 9 Freedom Ice

I got to try one of the newer flavors - FREEDOM ICE!! First of all, love the formula; Xtend is the original and still great. 3.5g leucine is perfect for kicking the threshold for MPS. 2:1:1 ratio - check! Glutamine for assistance with recovery and all-around health - check! Freedom Ice tastes really good, but not very distinguishable from Blue Raspberry (which I also like); I wish it had a little more lemony 'bite'. The only other knock I can give it is that dang perma-blue tongue!! I'll take a little less bue dye, please. But overall, very tasty, very adequately dosed. What's not to love?

  • 9 Freedom Ice

Another, really amazing and truly unique flavor from Xtend. I've always loved the mixability of Xtend and the WIDE variety of flavors, but they really took it to a new level with Freedom Ice. It really tastes like a bomb pop - no other way to put it. Like other flavors, it's rather sweet, but depending on your tastes you can use more or less. I would use 1 scoop in a shaker bottle...a little less in a half liter water bottle. My friend would use 1.5 or even 2 scoops in her shaker bottle. It's easy to tailor it to your tastebuds...and, as usual, it mixes incredibly well. Perfect for fasted workouts - will keep using!

Scivation nailed the bomb pop flavor on this one. It taste just like bomb popsicles I use to get from the ice cream truck, only difference is I dont have to worry about this one melting and getting all over my clothes. The best part about the flavor is how strong it is. What I mean is Im able to mix in 1 scoop with a 1/2 gallon of water and the flavor still holds up strong. This is a HUGE win for me because that means I can get more usage out of the tub since I only need 1 scoop for a 1/2 gallon of water. Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a tasty intraworkout beverage to sip on between sets.
