    Bulk Xtend?


    I like Xtend, and would like to buy it in larger qualities than in those 1016.1g jars to save a few dollars if possible.

    How about it?

    Could this be a possibility in the future, Marc?

    Probably not because people aready complain about the price even though we have it as low as it can go. There wouldn't be a large market for the bigger jugs. Where do you guys get your Xtend from?

    I think my answer is pretty obvious.

    Well, the sticker shock would kill people. Imagine $100 for 5lbs of Xtend!

    Xtend is one of my favorite supplements, however I'm curious as to what keeps the price so high. Is it the quality of the components? The costs of synthesizing it at a precise ratio? Something else?

    Thanks.

    This is a product that costs A LOT to make.

    Ok. So it's the manufacturing process more than anything else.

    I get mine from Bulk Nutrition if it matters. Been a customer for years and treated very well so I've never bothered to look elsewheres.

    I'm not surprised to hear that Xtend is priced "as low as it can go" - 1000g bulk BCAA is only 11 bucks less, but tastes like crap, doesn't have citrulline malate, B-6 or glutamine in there.

    The glutamine is cheap, but the citrulline malate isn't. However I feel that the citrulline malate is under dosed in Xtend and I end up buying citrulline malate on the side to mix into the Xtend or BCAA's. But that's a different subject for a different day.

    I've been trying out the BCAA mega-dosing that Derek wrote about and am pleased with the results I am getting and plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. I feel that as more people discover the postitve effects of BCAA mega dosing, there will be more of a demand for BCAA's, especially in a more tasty, bulk form.

    I myself have started mega dosing Xtend as of today. I am excited to find and see how I react to the dosage.

    It costs MUCH MUCH MUCH less to put an unflavored powder in a plastic bag or unlabeled jug then to put the same product in a labeled jug with flavoring. Then you got manufacturing fees and all that fun stuff.

    I'd rather pay extra for the flavoring then just do bulk BCAA powder. I have done both and flavored BCAA is the way to go.

    And so would I, especially if I could get Xtend in bulk (unmarked plastic bags would be perfectly fine) to make the price a bit more competetive. Some of us don't want to pay for the pretty labels, or multiple shipping/handling charges just to get a few pounds worth. We just want the product. As it is, I currently buy Xtend AND bulk BCAA, mix it up and dump in a bunch of citrulline malate. Costs me about 100 bucks for 2200g of the good stuff to my door.

    Has anyone ever done the math on Xtend vs making it yourself. Personally Im impressed with how good they come to being competitive with the raw prices of it. For just a couple bucks more you get a tasty bcaa drink. The price for Xtend was found at another site other than BN but you get the idea. I just did this for my own purposes but thought others might find it interesting.
    Bulknutrition Prices
    Price Per Gram
    BN Bcaa 1000g 39.99 $0.039/Gram
    BN Citrulline Malate Powder 75g 9.99 $0.133/Gram
    PrimaForce GlutaForm 1000g 32.99 $0.033/Gram
    Now FoodsVitamin B6 100/100mg Pills 4.99 $0.499/Gram

    To make your own you'd need:
    630g Bcaa 630*.039=$24.57
    90g Citrulline Malate 75*.133=$11.97
    225g Glutamine 225*.033=$7.43
    .9g B6 .9*.499=$0.45
    Total Price $44.42

    Scivation Xtend
    Price=$45.99
    Bcaa 7g/Serving*90=630Grams
    Citrulline Malate 1g/Serving*90=90Grams
    Glutamine 2.5g/Serving*90=225Grams
    Vitamin B6 10mg/Serving*90=.9Grams

    Great post Nicholas. Xtend also tastes good and that costs them too... I don't see how they can go lower on the current price, except by going bulk, and even then, there's probably not more tha a few dollars to be saved. I'd be interested should Scivation or somebody else decide to go down that route someday.

    This is a good thread.

    And one more thing,
    I would like to thank Scivation for bringing such a great product at such a reasonable cost. I look at all my empty xtend cans and think "MMMMMMMmmmm, must get more!!"

    Thanks guys.
