Xtend combines a proprietary blend of electrolytes with 7 grams of BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio. Formulated to improve recovery, enhance muscle growth, and improve performance, Xtend also incorporates glutamine and citrulline malate into the formula.
Available in eight unique flavors, Xtend BCAAs has zero carbohydrates, zero calories, and zero grams of sugar per serving. It does, however, contain artificial sweeteners, which many consumers like as it hides the typically bitter taste associated with BCAAs. That said, not everyone adds artificial sweeteners to their diet and it can cause gastrointestinal distress. The taste tends to fall on the sweet side so if you prefer a more subtle taste, it is recommended to add extra water to each serving.
This BCAA powder is designed for both women and men alike. It contains L-leucine for muscle protein synthesis, L-glutamine to restore glutamine levels and citrulline malate with nitric oxide to promote better blood flow. Together, these ingredients make for a high-quality supplement. Since Xtend is tested and certified to be banned-substance-free by Informed Choice, it’s widely used by athletes in a variety of sports.
