Solid review and this flavor looks and sounds tasty and I also have the Mango Nectar as my favoriteThanks again to TheSolution and 1Fast400 for sending a tub of the new Strawberry Mango Xtend.
Xtend is by far the best flavored BCAA product on the market, and Scivation continues to deliver with its latest flavor release.
Close up when first opening the tub:

Time to measure and see how close a level scoop is to the ingredients panel:
PERFECT 13g in a single scoop! Props Scivation for being on point with scooper!
And one more close up of it mixed:
I'll start off this flavor review by saying that my favorite flavor of Xtend currently is Mango Nectar and closely followed by Pineapple. These two in my opinion are way ahead of the others, but flavoring is also personal preference so some of you may dispute the top two flavors.
Instructions say mix with 8-16 oz of water. So I started with 8 oz and increased to 12, 16, and finally 20 (I like a full shaker when working out!).
In 8oz of water, the strawberry flavor is quite pronounced and the mango flavoring is rather subtle. As you increase the water content (still only with one scoop of the powder in the shaker), the sweet fruity strawberry flavor starts to lessen and the mango flavor begins to take over, resulting in a very similar flavor to mango nectar, though with the hint of strawberry on the finish.
Overall, EXCELLENT job on the new flavor of Xtend by Scivation, and I could easily sip on this stuff all day long without suffering from palate fatigue! Great job guys!
Thanks again for allowing me the opportunity to try this!
Solid review and this flavor looks and sounds tasty and I also have the Mango Nectar as my favorite
flavor tied with Lemon Lime so this Blood Orange and Blue Raspberry are flavors that I haven't
tried yet from Scivation so somewhere in the future I'll be picking them up when I need bcaa's along
with that PrimaForce Teacrine which I am looking forward to testing out and see how effective at a
good dose of 100- 150 mg.
Good feedback and I've used Scivation/PrimaForce products for many years and their bcca's haveInitial Review:
Upon opening the product:
The overall smell of this product makes your mouth water. It smells just like opening a bag of dried pineapple pieces. As usual, the Scivation team and The Solution hooked me up with samples of other flavors, a new shaker, and a funnel!!!
The taste on this one is dead on. I buy these flavored water packets by Crush (soda) that are pineapple and the XTEND tastes just like them! 10/10
The profile of this product is dead on. appropriate dose of BCAAs along with some added benefits of blood flow and hydration. It would be interesting to up the Citrulline Malate dose to 6g+ for the added pump benefits. 10/10
No iddues whatsoever. I always look for the foam at the top of BCAA products once mixed in water as it is a good indicator of an appropriate Leucine dose. 10/10
Basically the Layne Norton protocol - every 4 hours in between meals (only where I would not be eating a meal in that 4hr block).
Some days I will eat a meal at work around 2 or 3 and I leave at 4:30 but don't get home until 5-5:30 and no dinner until about 6-6:30 so I will have a dose of XTEND around 4 or 5 in between meals.
4:30AM: 1scoop of XTEND
4:45AM: 1scoop of GAT Sport Nitraflex
5:00AM: 1coop of XTEND intraworkout
I use this stuff like crazy, utilizing the Layne Norton protocol for in between meals. I have definitely noticed recovery benefits. I have been eating slightly over maintenance caloric intake, about 200cals, and I can really notice the benefits of XTEND. Seems like my level of soreness/fatigue has gone down since adding a fair amount of BCAA dosing in my daily routine.
I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend. ESPECIALLY this flavor. Out of the flavors (samples in picture) that I have received I would rank them as follows:
2) Strawberry Kiwi
3) Blue Razz
7) Fruit Punch
That doesn't mean that Fruit Punch is the worst, but that I would purchase them in that order. ALL flavors were exceptional.
Next on my list is to try out the XTEND GO for the benefit of BCAAs + Caffeine/Theanine combo.
