Providing fuel to the muscles while training is vital in order to achieve the best out of every session. The advantages of using Scivation Xtend are as follows:
- The highest source of BCAAs: The muscle structure is made of amino acids. Of the different amino acids in the muscles, BCAAs or branched chain amino acids are the most abundant ones. It consists of BCAA i.e. leucine, isoleucine and valine in the perfect ratio of 2:1:1. Each serving (13.2g) provides 7 g of BCAA which helps to keep the muscles fuelled even during intense training. It also offers the advantage of being a consistent source of nutrients for the muscles to prevent any muscle fatigue or muscle loss. BCAAs are directly absorbed by the muscles and they ensure that the body doesn’t suffer any muscle soreness, or muscular pain associated with it.
- Better delivery of nutrients and oxygen: Scivation Xtend BCAA is also packed with 555 mg of L-citrulline per serving (13.2g). Citrulline helps dilate the blood vessels to promote better blood circulation. Improved blood circulation further leads to better oxygen supply to the muscles. This ensures that the lactic acid build up in the muscles is intercepted and as a result, muscle fatigue is too is prevented. Reduced lactic acid build up ultimately helps with lesser muscle soreness and stiffness, or completely averts it.
- Improved fat metabolism: Scivation Xtend BCAA contains zero sugar and zero carbohydrates. This ensures that there is no additional calorie consumption. As a result, the fat deposits are used up better for energy purposes and any chance of fat deposits is also prevented. The supplement supports increased fat metabolism as well as promotes lean muscle development .
- Keeps the person hydrated: Several important electrolytes are lost from the body due to sweating while working out. Sweating also leads to loss of water from the body increasing the chances of cramping and dehydration. The unique electrolyte blend in Scivation Xtend, replenishes the electrolytes lost during workout as well as helps in retaining water inside the body. This makes it a perfect intra-workout supplement that ultimately helps in keeping the person more hydrated and energetic as well as prevents post-workout fatigue triggered due to electrolyte loss from the body.
When to Use
For best results, it is recommended to have one serving before workout and one serving post workout. This helps to provide the muscles with fuel which is needed to sustain long hours of training. It also keeps the body loaded with electrolytes to reduce chances of muscle cramps and other issues related to dehydration. As per the individual requirement, up to 2 servings of Scivation Xtend BCAA can be consumed per day. On non-training days, people having extreme workout regimes can consume 2 servings anytime throughout the day. It is suggested to consume this supplement on a daily basis for best results.
How to Use
One scoop of Scivation Xtend BCAA can be added to 250-475ml of water and has to be shaken well. The requirement may vary from person to person and needs to be taken care accordingly. However, one can adjust the amount of water as per personal taste and preference.
What are BCAAs?
BCAAs or Branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) are the most important structural amino acids in the muscles. They are the most abundant amino acids that are used up to fuel the muscles as well as to help them recover faster. For those who train on a regular basis, BCAA supplements can help improve performance and endurance.
Are there any food sources of BCAAs?
BCAAs are most abundantly found in red meat and dairy products. However, a BCAA supplement fulfills the requirement of the body through a single source. For vegetarians, especially, consuming a BCAA supplement is very important if they have a physically demanding training regime.
Is it safe to consume this supplement on non-training days?
Yes. Scivation Xtend BCAA can also be used on non-training days in order to improve the recovery process. It keeps the muscles fuelled and prevents any catabolic muscle loss that can hamper the results expected from hard training regimes.
What are the other benefits of Scivation Xtend?
Besides loading the body with BCAAs, it also packs a good amount of source of citrulline and electrolytes. The former helps improve blood circulation for maximum nutrient and oxygen delivery. The latter help the body retain water to prevent dehydration and related issues like muscle cramps.
Can I use this as part of a weight loss diet plan?
Yes. Scivation Xtend contains zero sugar and carbs. It does not add any calories to the diet as well as promotes better fat metabolism. Therefore, it can conveniently form a part of a calorie restricted diet plan which is necessary for weight loss.
