Scivation Xtend BCAAs – 16 Flavors | Product Review



  • PRODUCT NAME :- Scivation Xtend BCAAs.



  • SHIPPING WEIGHT :- 1.2 pounds.

  • PRODUCT DIMENSIONS :- 3.5 x 3.5 x 6.5 inches ; 1 pound.

  • The Scivation Xtend BCAAs is great for people who are constantly working out at the gym and need to give their body enough support for muscle growth. If you need to lose weight and usually tire out easily after a workout or even want to lose weight, this is the right product for you!
  • This product is carbohydrate and sugar-free. As the name suggests, it is also a good source of amino acids because it consists of 7 grams of BCAAs per serving and this product also comes in 16 different flavors.
  • It also consists of Glutamine, an amino acid which can help us keep our immune system healthy and away from immune system suppression caused by exercising. Now, you might be wondering how this is possible since exercise is known to make our immune systems healthier!
  • Exercising does have its long-term benefits but when we become regular exercise lovers, the defenses of our immune system actually reduce and thus, it is beneficial to have supplementary glutamine as it can stop us from being more prone to infections.
  • As a plus point, it also consists of Citrullinean amino acid which is non-protein and is very helpful for performing exercises better as it raises the levels of arginine which produces nitric oxide.
  • The nitric oxide in our body helps nutrients reach our muscles in an easier way by expanding the muscles and citrulline also gives us the energy to perform our exercises better.

  • Who should consume BCAA products?

  • I, personally, started consuming the Scivation Xtend BCAAs when I started feeling really sore after my gym workouts. After taking this product, it didn’t show immediate results but it did help in feeling less fatigued and did provide energy too.
  • The following people should consume BCAA products:-

  • Those people who are working out for longer periods. BCAAs will travel straight to your muscles when you consume them and work as a fuel to repair and build your muscles.
    They can also help you get stronger.
  • The people who feel fatigued due to exercising. When you consume BCAA products, the hormone (tryptophan) which causes you to feel fatigued, is reduced in the body and thus, the feeling of fatigue is slowed down.
  • If you are one of those people who want to lose weight while keeping your muscles in shape, BCAA products are the way to go! A research was done at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA which showed that when certain amino acids are combined, it inhibits the breakdown of muscle tissues. ( Source:- NutritionExpress )

  • When should we consume BCAA products?

  • This is a question which gets asked very often and there are different answers to this.
  • If you are looking for a way to gain muscle strength and energy at the same time, you can either take your BCAA drink before your workout or after it and even consume it while you’re working out is a good way to nurture the muscles in our body.
  • BCAAs help in the recovery of your muscles after a workout, they improve your performance while you are working out because BCAAs are known to break down more easily during physical activity and they also give us strength and stamina if we take them before a workout.
  • Thus, the best time to consume a BCAA product is before, during and even after a workout.

  • Which form or BCAA is better?

  • This is also a constantly asked question and the answer is the POWDER FORM of BCAA is definitely better because it is said that the right amount of amino acids for us is 5g to 10g and to get that through tablets may mean eating 10 to 20 of them.
  • Also, BCAA powders are way better in taste and this is mostly done because there is nothing more disgusting than the taste of plain BCAA! The flavors of the Scivation Xtend BCAAs include:-
  • Pineapple ( this is my favorite and this is why I’ve included a personal picture of the one I bought above!)

  • Strawberry Kiwi.

  • Raspberry Blue.

  • Pink Lemonade.

  • Black Cherry.

  • Watermelon.

  • Blue Raspberry.

  • Mango Nectar.

  • Pink Lemonade.

  • Raw. (only if you don’t want any flavors and are looking for plain BCAAs).

  • Fruit Punch.

  • Green Apple.

  • Grape.

  • Lemon Lime.

  • Orange Dream.

  • Mango.

  • What are the ingredients?

    Supplement Facts


  • The Scivation Xtend BCAAs consist of Vitamin B 6 which helps our body modify food into fuel but is not known to give any extra energy like that of caffeine.
  • L-Isoleucine :-

    This is an important ingredient because our muscle cells use this as a fuel while we have intense workouts. Another reason this ingredient is essential is because it promotes anabolism, anti-catabolism and protein synthesis.

  • L-Leucine :-

  • This ingredient is useful for maintaining our muscle tissues by preserving the balance of nitrogen in our body. It helps us focus better when we are involved in intense trainings and saves muscle glycogen which is essential for muscle contraction.
  • L-Valine :-

  • This ingredient is indeed very important for recovery and the growth of the tissues in our body. Moreover, it is a very good source of energy which is beneficial to our muscles.
    The electrolyte blend consists of trisodium citrate dihydrate, potassium chloride and sodium chloride.
  • Trisodium citrate dihydrate:-

  • It helps regulate acidity and is useful for decreasing the effects of acidosis felt while working out intensely.
  • Potassium Chloride :-

  • This ingredient is important because it plays a very important role in carrying glucose into our muscle cells. The biggest reason why this ingredient is important is because it also helps in the breakdown of glycogen for energy and being potassium deficient can actually make us feel like vomiting or even nauseous.
  • Sodium Chloride :-

  • This ingredient is not only important for helping our body function normally but also provides us with energy and stamina which is beneficial for our workouts.
  • So, that is it for the most important ingredients of this product!

    What is not so great about this product?

  • Many people find this product to be expensive.
  • It contains glutamine which some people are allergic to.
  • Some people would like more leucine in this product.

  • My overall opinion….

  • This is a product with great value and I would recommend it to anyone who is a part of intense workouts and needs muscle recovery quick! When I started using this product, I could feel the effects soon enough and it really did help me.
  • There are many flavors to choose from and my favorite, as you know now, is pineapple!
    The mixability is great and what I like the most about this product is it’s electrolyte blend. Scivation is a trusted brand in the world of BCAA products too!
  • Therefore, I conclude by saying that is a good product, although expensive, get’s the job done!

  1. Nice review of the Scivation BCAA´s.I love fitness and know a lot about supplements. You did a perfect product description and what is most important you personally tested it. This wakes in me more trust to purchase the supps. The flavours are good. Can you recommend me a similar prodcut that has the same attributes?

    1. Hello, Pascal.
      I’m glad you liked it.

      Scivation Xtend BCAAs are the ones I use when I need BCAAs just because they have so many flavors and it gets the job done really well for me. I’m not sure about other products with the same attributes.


  2. This sounds like the perfect product for me and it’s carbohydrate and sugar free too! I love all the flavors you can get. I don’t know about the pineapple, but I believe my son would really like that one. We both go to the gym and get really sore after, so this is perfect! How long does one container of this last? I think we will have to decide on a flavor we both like and try it out.

    1. Thank you so much for reading. 😀

      We’re glad you liked it!

      Most of the flavors work for me but the Pineapple one is definitely my favorite.

      This particular product has 90 servings but there are other packages available which have lesser servings.
      It really depends on how often you use the product.


  3. gyming is one of the most important part of of exercising and in most cases i use to find myself in a condition where i can even feel dizzy and sometimes thinking that something might be wrong but with the issue of BCAAs i think this will be the right one for me to use
