Xtend by Scivation Review Amino Acids- Click Here to Buy
So what is it?
Well it’s a branched chain amino acid supplement that also has some other things like electrolytes which is going to help with the endurance of your workout.
Alright so per scoop of Scivation Xtend you’re looking at 0 fat and 0 carbs. I can’t save 0 calories. There are calories associated with amino acids but were not going to get into that right now.
For the electrolyte blend you have your potassium and sodium. They are there to help you make sure you have a electrolytes replenishment during your work out. That’s why its an intra-workout catalyst.
Now for the good stuff so you have 3.5 g of leucine per scoop. You have 2 .5 g of glutamine per scoop. You also have 1.75 g of isoleucine and valine per scoop and a 1 g of citrulline malate per scoop.
Now the one I’m really interested in is of course leucine. I always mentioned that because it’s been shown to increase muscle protein synthesis the most out of all of them.
And it has a hefty dose in your total branched chain amino acids, per scoop is 7 grams.
I’ll get into how you should dose that a little later.
Citrulline malate helps with energy production. I don’t want to dive too much into the science behind it. But it is one of the three things that are involved in urea cycle, helping removing waste through nitric oxide production because it does increase L-arginine in the body which helps with all around endurance factors.
Seeing that in here is great for a branched chain amino acid supplement.
So all that being said, based on the breakdown I would say 9.5 out of 10. I’m a little biased towards Scivation, I’ve been using it for years and I love it as a product.
For mixability, as much as I am a fan of Scivation, it could be a little bit better, 8.5 out of 10 for mixability.
Now let’s taste the grape escape.
It’s awesome you’re not going to find another better tasting amino acid supplement out there granted I haven’t try them all yet. So like I said im biased so im going to give it a 9.5 and 10 for taste. I really like it all around.
How to take it
It does say build muscle, burn fat and recover faster.
It also has a dosing chart and it says up to 200 pounds for men 2 to 3 scoop a day. Over 200 pounds 3 to 4 scoops a day.
For women up to 125 pounds 1 to 2 scoops per day and over 125 pounds 1 to 3 scoop a day.
To make it even simpler than all of that.
There 7 grams per scoop, well most of the studies out there show 10 to 15 g intra-workout is ideal. Stick with that; 10 to 15g. What is that 2 – 3 scoops anyway, pretty much what they said on the chart.
During your workout you sip on it. If I haven’t eaten anything for a couple hours before I work out, I’ll let have one full scoop of this as I’m driving to the gym. I’ll even throw some in my pre-workout supplement as well.
And when I get to the gym I have a bottle pre made of about 2 to 3 scoops in there. That is the only time I’ll touch it.
The only other time I’ll recommend using this is when you’re dieting especially, when you get down to a really low caloric intake.
I’ll have one scoop in between meals, it might just be a placebo or just something I like. But I just know the recommendations been out there for a while. It just helps to keep the body as much an anabolic environment as possible.
So what should you expect by taking it
Well bottom line is if you’re doing everything else right, this will help you make sure you have an adequate supply of branch chained amino acids in your body if you’re not already getting it through your diet.
So it’s going to create a even more anabolic environment. It’s going to increase your lean muscle mass because it’s going to increase your muscle protein synthesis.
Is it a night and day difference? No, but it definitely does help and we can all use those extra little percents here and there if were already doing everything else right. That is my honest review about Scivation extend.
So you could find Scivation extend at Same Day Supplements retailing for $22.99 giving you 30 servings or $52.99 giving you 90 servings.
It comes in lemon lime, blue raspberry, green apple, orange dream, great escape, watermelon strawberry kiwi and mango.
