Scivation Xtend is the industry standard for intra-workout BCAA’s and muscle fuelling nutrition. Xtend is completely free of sugars and carbohydrates which means that as well as increasing muscle recovery and muscle building it is also great for helping fat burning. Whenever you are training, particularly when you are training at a calorie deficit your body has the tendency to burn muscle as well as fat for energy. Xtend provides your body with the nutrition it needs to maintain muscle mass so that your body targets fat stores as an energy source instead of muscles.
Xtend has become much more than just another blend of BCAA’s as the new formula also contains electrolytes to keep your muscles hydrated as well as glutamine to further reduce muscle catabolism.
Also Xtend has citrulline malate which helps with the transportation of the nutrition to your muscles to ensure that the nutrients in Xtend are properly utilised by your body.
Scivation Xtend is a great intra-workout supplement to help you get the most out of your hard hours in the gym and also has a taste to rival even the best of protein powders.
I love this product. This is the only product I can fast and train heavy. Amazing stuff!
Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AAKG) is an important biological compound, used by the body to help with the creation of usable energy from carbohydrates, fats and protein. It combines with ammonia to create glutamic acid, a precursor of glutamine.
AAKG is a popular ingredient in many pre-workout cell volumisers. The Alpha-Ketoglutarate compound helps improve the delivery of L-Arginine and is one of the most important nitrogen (NO2) transporters in metabolic pathways.
Growth Factor Glutamine is a vital amino acid for growth. It is highly important to supplement with glutamine because it is the most dominant amino acid in your muscle tissue, and will ensure that you are optimising your muscle recovery.
Beyond BCAA supports muscular endurance, increased blood flow and enhanced nutrient delivery, allowing you to workout at a heightened intensity for a longer period. Beyond BCAA is made with the proven ratio of 2:1:1 of branched chain amino acids.
Citrulline Malate is an amino acid that is a by product in the body's conversion process of turning Arginine into nitric oxide (NO). Studies have found that by supplementing Citrulline Malate that it increases the amount of arginine in the blood. An increase in the levels of Arginine in the blood result in increase NO production. As is well known, an increase in NO in the blood results in imporved endurance and increased blood flow to the muscles resulting in the "pump" feeling.
