    I didn't like Xtend because that stuff really didn't want to dissolve into water.

    The old version didn't dissolve as well as the new one.

    On a scale of 1 to awesome, how does the new one mix? With 1 being the worst and awesome being the best...

    I'm a long time user of Xtend but haven't been able to afford a BCAA supplement lately. I've tried RecoverPro both the Lemon and the Red Raspberry. They are great tasting and good products, but not nearly as good as Xtend. Plus Xtend has the proven ratio and also the added citruilline and other goodies.

    thats what I like bout AMS body Mortar...

    Stuff is in a 4:1:1 ratio and still completely dissolves without much effort.


    Bulk Leucine is impossible to get to go completely into solution.... dont know how these manufacturers do it with their products. its awesome though and coupled with the masking agents for flavor, its well worth the extra dough imo.


    Id really like to give the new Xtend a try and compare, liked the old one myself, flavor was great but there was a noticable after taste I think due to the extras not mixing in all the way and getting stuck in the mouth or something.

    I don't understand how anyone can get BCAAs dissolved in water their side chains are hydrophobic. If you get a product that can dissolve in water wouldn't that be an indication that you aren't really getting BCAAs?

    I'm currently using Monster Amino by CytoSport. Sour Apple flavor. Seems to mix very well but it's $20 for 30 servings. I do notice a little unmixability but nothing that affects me drinking it...and I tend to give away stuff that I can stand to use pretty quickly. Anadrolic State comes to mind.

    BSN makes an AminoX now too, same price so you really have a ton of options. Both AminoX & Monster Amino have a sample 10 serving container so try them both

    Xtend. I've also used Purple Wraath and Dymatize Recoup. I just keep going back to Xtend for some reason.

    I've used both; power shock by vpx is another good one to consider. I used all 3 in my previous contest prep. Xtend at random times of the day, powershock intra workout, modern bcaa post workout during my cardio.

    This is SOOO true.

    I tried to go bulk route one time, it took me about a month to figure out it was just too much of a PITA to try and cap my own products, as well as figure out flavoring techniques.

    Man I used to spend hours capping bulk powerful then 1-carboxy and bulk super cissus.... Then have to make sure I didn't mix the stupid caps up...

    I still think that was worth it.... Bulk leucine was crap though and messy, damn stuff was hydrophobic and took to static electricity like it was dust.....

    I just use my bcaas to mask my bulk powders now which aren't many since there is no more uspowders and I'm only taking in daa intermittently and lclt right now.

    Xtend is probably the most commonly talked about BCAA product in all the threads I see on here.

    I have never met or seen a single person in the UK who was using it. I bet I could survey all of the guys in my gym and less than 5 would even know who Scivation were.

    Maybe I am on the wrong forum lol.

    I have bulk leucine from smart powders.. mine mixes pretty good. It gets a little foamy, but eventually settles. Maybe mine is bunk?

    Maybe you're in the wrong country . Our UK distributor does well, just sent a 40' container of xtend to him last week. Xtend is the #1 selling bcaa product in the country. For a company that doesn't do any main stream advertising, I think that says a lot.

    Scivation/Primaforce is one of the best companies in the industry as far as I'm concerned.

    We'll be looking forward to that, it's slowing down a bit so some fresh blood is always nice! I personally really like the Red Raspberry flavor.

    Send it to PA to have it tested, quick! If it is, then you can add it to the Taurus promo and see if you get free things.

    Any updated opinions on this? Normally I'd just go Xtend but the USP product is considerably cheaper at .26c per serving with ~70 servings

    2:1:1 seems to be what most people would go with, which is why between the two, I would go with Xtend, and I can personally say, all of Xtends flavors are good. Now that Im sponsored by AX, I have been using Stacked BCAA which has the same 2:1:1 ratio and it used instantized BCAAs so it can mix easily with just a spoon. Only one flavor, blue raspberry, but it tastes great!
