Scivation Xtend is scientifically formulated to maximize training intensity and promote optimal muscle protein synthesis and
recovery while you train.
Xtend is formulated with a precise PentActive blend of actives, synergistically involved in key cellular processes to
optimize muscle performance and response:
1. Research validated 2:1:1 ratio of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, to stimulate
and support muscle protein synthesis and provide metabolic energy while you train.
2. Glutamine to promote muscle intracellular BCAA metabolism down the correct energy and protein synthesis pathways via the
BCAA aminotransferase enzyme.
3. The rate-limiting cofactor Vitamin B6 to ensure optimal BCAA aminotransferase reactions.
4. Bonded Citrulline Malate to help facilitate rapid ATP turnover and lactate reabsorption to support higher training volumes
at a given exercise intensity.
5. The three most vital electrolytes - Potassium, Chloride and Sodium - to optimize cell hydration and muscle contractile
function while you train under the most brutal of conditions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What is Xtend?
A: Xtend is the ultimate, sugar-free, BCAA-containing drink mix to be consumed during exercise (intra-workout). Whether
you're a physique athlete, strongman, powerlifter, traditional athlete (e.g., football, basketball, baseball, soccer, etc),
endurance competitor, or just looking to significantly change your body composition through resistance training and
nutrition, Xtend is ideally formulated to maximize training intensity and support your goals.† Xtend was the first and has
become the most well-recognized and used intra-workout catalyst product because it not only works.... but it tastes great
too! Xtend contains an incredible:
7000 mg of BCAAs in an ideal 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine
3500 mg of Leucine
2500 mg of Glutamine
1000 mg of Citrulline Malate
1171 mg of Electrolytes
640 mcg of Vitamin B6
And, ZERO Carbohydrates or Sugar
Xtend was recently reformulated to dramatically improve taste and ingredient solubility - Xtend is now spoon-mixible - and to
provide added functionality for workouts or events under the most grueling of conditions. Xtend is available in 6 mouth-
watering, refreshing fruit flavors to make every workout an incredible one.
Q: Who should use Xtend?
A: Xtend was designed to be used effectively by anyone, male or female, who want to perform at their best - from serious
athletes to anyone that's just serious about performance or changing their physique. Though ideal for strength or
bodybuilding training, or for persons on a reduced carbohydrate diet, Xtend can also be used very effectively in a "bulking
phase" or by endurance athletes during training and competition. That is, Xtend works whether it's used as formulated and
indicated, or whether you choose to combine Xtend with supplemental carbohydrates based upon performance needs and duration.
Q: When's the best time to consume Xtend?
A: Two university studies confirm that Xtend is significantly effective at increasing muscle mass and strength, and reducing
body fat when consumed during exercise or immediately prior to and after training. It's recommended that you begin consuming
Xtend immediately prior to, and continue sipping on Xtend throughout your training or competition. Many users also report
significantly improved gains when Xtend is consumed immediately upon waking-up in the morning and/or sipping on Xtend
throughout the day.
Q: How much Xtend should I consume for it to be most effective?
A: For best mixing results and taste, pour 8 fluid ounces of filtered water into a shaker cup. Add 1 scoop of Xtend. Cover or
close the shaker cup. Swirl the shaker to create a vortex effect and draw the Xtend powder into solution. Then, once the
Xtend powder has fallen into solution, shake vigorously for about 25 shakes. Enjoy! For endurance athletes that may add Xtend
to their hydration pack, it is recommended that Xtend be mixed in a shaker cup or pitcher and then poured into the hydration
pack (as opposed to mixing directly within the hydration pack, as doing so may cause the hydration tubing to become blocked).
NOTE: If you find that some of the BCAA material settles at the bottom of the shaker cup, you may not have used the correct
dilution ratio of 1 scoop of Xtend per 8 fluid ounce of water.
Q: What results will I achieve from using Xtend?
A: Two clinical studies support the effective use of Xtend, when combined with exercise.
Xtend Increased Lean Body Mass by 2x MORE than Whey Protein and 3x MORE than Carbohydrates in just 8 weeks!
Xtend Decreased Body Fat by 2x MORE than Whey Protein and 3x MORE than Carbohydrates in just 8 weeks!
Xtend Increased the Bench Press Weight Used on a 10-reps to failure test (10-RM) by 2x MORE than Whey Protein and 3x MORE
than Carbohydrates in just 8 weeks!
Xtend Increased the Squat Weight Used on a 10-reps to failure test (10-RM) by 2x MORE than Whey Protein and 3x MORE than
Carbohydrates in just 8 weeks!
Other results you can expect from using Xtend include:
- Increased Exercise Training Volume (More Volume/More Total Work = Greater Adaptation or More Muscle)
- Increased Muscle Protein Synthesis
- Reduced Muscle Protein Breakdown
- Increased Muscular Endurance
- Increased Energy & Endurance Capacity
- Improved Blood Glucose Disposal & Insulin Response
- Increased Power Output
- Increased ATP Synthesis/Resynthesis
- Increased Nitric Oxide (NO)
- Delayed Onset of Muscle Fatigue/Increased Time to Exhaustion
- Improved Neuromuscular Responsiveness & Recovery
- Improved Hydration
Q: How fast will I see results from using Xtend?
A: Most Xtend users report an immediate, acute response during training. Variables such as training volume, reduced fatigue,
and increased muscular endurance and power output are common to first-time Xtend users.† For body composition and strength
changes, Xtend studies support significant improvements in as little as 8 weeks.
Q: Is Xtend safe?
A: Not only do each of the individual ingredients used in Xtend have an incredibly high dosing threshold of safety and many
years of validated clinical trials to support safety across a wide range of consumers, but Xtend did not adversely affect any
measures of safety in either of the two clinical studies in which it was used chronically and at high doses for up to 10
weeks. Additionally, each batch of Xtend undergoes rigorous quality assurance and analytical testing to validate ingredient
purity and potency, and is blended and packaged in an NSF for Sport® certified facility to ensure no banned substances are
inadvertently introduced into the manufacturing process while producing Xtend.
Q: How does Xtend work?
A: Xtend is formulated with a precise PentActive blend of key ingredients, synergistically involved in cellular processes to
optimize muscle performance and response:
Stage 1: 7000 mg of BCAAs, in a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine is used to provide metabolic energy while you
train, as well as to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
Stage 2: 2500 mg of Glutamine is used to increase extracellular concentrations of Glutamine, which helps to promote
muscle intracellular BCAA metabolism down the correct energy and protein synthesis pathways via the BCAA aminotransferase
Stage 3: 640 mcg of Vitamin B6 serves as the rate-limiting cofactor involved in optimal BCAA aminotransferase reactions.
Stage 4: 1000 mg of Citrulline Malate help support rapid ATP turnover and lactate reabsorption to support higher training
volumes at a given exercise intensity. Citrulline also serves as a secondary signal to stimulate muscle protein synthesis,
most likely arising from its ability to promote increased blood flow via increase nitric oxide (NO) and/or improving the
energy state of a cell by promoting lactate reabsorption .
Stage 5: 1171 mg of an extensively studied Electrolyte blend, consisting of Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate, Potassium
Chloride, and Sodium Chloride, help to optimize muscle contractile function and promote cell hydration under the most brutal
Q: How does Xtend compare to other products?
A: In both 8-week & 10-week clinical trials, under no or weight-reducing calorie restricted diets, respectively, Xtend has
significantly outperformed Whey Protein, Carbohydrates and a 4:1 (Carb-to-Protein) sports beverage on measures of lean body
mass, body fat, upper- and lower-body muscular endurance, and upper- and lower-body strength.† No other product on the market
even comes close! Within the physique and anaerobic sports nutrition industry, competitive products are either under-dosed,
contain irrelevant ingredients included more for a label effect than a physiological one, or are so ignorantly formulated as
to wonder what species' metabolism the company's R&D personnel believes to be their core audience. During exercise beverages
for the endurance world, on the other hand, still depend too heavily on simple carbohydrates or, when amino acids are
included, generally use low doses of a whey protein concentrate that yield only a fraction of the key amino acids and
introduce unnecessary lactose and fat into a high-performance environment.
Q: Are there any other products that will help improve the results I achieve when using Xtend?
A: Xtend was formulated, and then recently reformulated to remove the need for additional ingredients while you train or
compete. However, Xtend was explicitly formulated to contain no carbohydrates or sugar so that you could dictate how you may
want to manipulate your carbohydrate needs based upon your training cycle or duration. Therefore, when carbohydrates are
desired, combine Xtend with up to 0.45 g of carbohydrate per pound of bodyweight, per hour of exercise. When carbohydrates
are added, increase the amount of water used per serving so that the finished formula concentration is easily digestible
