Build and preserve lean muscle mass with 7 GRAMS of hypercritical BCAAs - in the natural-designed and widely researched 2:1:1 ratio - along with added L-Glutamine and blood flow enhancing Citrulline Malate. Combined with a proprietary blend of hydration-promoting vital electrolytes, Scivation Xtend BCAAs is the delicious, refreshing, ZERO SUGAR way to help anyone grind through a grueling gym training session.
World-class athletes, elite bodybuilders, champion powerlifters, and weight-training enthusiasts of varying types all over the world all use Scivation Xtend BCAAs during their hard workouts to help them train longer, harder, and with more intensity. When consuming two servings per day, Scivation Xtend BCAAs helps to facilitate both fat loss and promote new muscle construction. Also, by orchestrating optimal protein synthesis and balancing intracellular energy economy, Scivation Xtend BCAAs severely speeds up recovery time.
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 plus 1.75 grams of Valine and 1.75 grams of Isoleucine.
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.
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.*
