Xtend was designed for any person participating in intense physical training whether it be in the gym on in the sporting arena and wanting sustained levels of peak performance and optimal muscle recovery especially when under a heavy training load.When's the best time to consume Xtend?
Studies suggest that BCAA supplements like Xtend have a significant effect in increasing lean muscle mass, through improved muscle recovery and by counteracting the stresses induced from intense training when consumed during exercise or alternatively immediately before or after training. Furthermore it has been proven that the absorption and utilisation of BCAA's in the body is improved by supplementation throughout the day so for best results it is also advised that 1-2 serves of BCAA's like Xtend are sipped on throughout the day as part of your regular water intake.
Is Xtend safe to use in professional sport?
All the ingredients used in Xtend have an incredibly high dosing threshold of safety and many years of validated clinical trials to support safety across a wide range of consumers. Additionally, each batch of Xtend undergoes rigorous quality assurance and analytical testing to validate ingredient purity and potency, and is blended and packaged in an NSF for Sport® certified facility to ensure no banned substances are inadvertently introduced into the manufacturing process while producing Xtend.
How does Xtend work?
Xtend is formulated with a precise PentActive blend of key ingredients, synergistically involved in cellular processes to optimize muscle performance and response:
Stage 1: 7000 mg of BCAAs, in a 2:1:1 ratio of Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine is used to provide metabolic energy while you train, as well as to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.
Stage 2: 2500 mg of Glutamine is used to increase extracellular concentrations of Glutamine, which helps to promote muscle intracellular BCAA metabolism down the correct energy and protein synthesis pathways via the BCAA aminotransferase enzyme.
Stage 3: 640 mcg of Vitamin B6 serves as the rate-limiting cofactor involved in optimal BCAA aminotransferase reactions.
Stage 4: 1000 mg of Citrulline Malate can help support rapid ATP turnover and lactate reabsorption to support higher training volumes at a given exercise intensity. Citrulline also serves as a secondary signal to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, most likely arising from its ability to promote increased blood flow via increase nitric oxide (NO) and/or improving the energy state of a cell by promoting lactate reabsorption.
Stage 5: 1171 mg of an extensively studied Electrolyte blend, consisting of Trisodium Citrate Dihydrate, Potassium Chloride, and Sodium Chloride, help to optimize muscle contractile function and promote cell hydration under the most brutal of conditions.
