Scivation Xtend BCAAS

* Over 1 gram aminos per serve

* Convenient dosing

* Boosts mTOR Signal

* No Mix, No Fuss

 

Scivation Xtend BCAAS are a convenient branched chain amino acid with added citrulline designed to be taken instead of, or as well as, the standard powdered BCAA formulations. They are a convenient option, given that there is no need for mixing, or finding a clean shaker bottle. Clean shaker bottles can somtimes be ellusive! Simply swallow the capsules, and the outer capsule layer quickly dissolves in the stomach, releasing the amino acids contained within. The capsule form is superior to tablets, as it is broken down much more readily, making the effects faster and with less stress on the gut. 

 

The main ingredient within Scivation Xtend BCAAS is L-leucine, which has been demonstrated to stimulate mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), one of the important triggers of muscle protein synthesis1. Muscle protein synthesis is an important aspect of maintaing healthy muscle protein turnover. So, whether your goal is to gain muscle, repair muscle, or maintain healthy muscle, any stimulation of muscle protein synthesis is helpful. Thinking of the strands of muscle like rope on a sailing ship can be a helpful anaolgy. Even if we don't need more rope (muscle) on the ship, we do want to replace old and worn out rope. Otherwise, the rope may not function as well as it could when it is needed. So to, the muscles on our body need to be constantly replaced, which is a part of muscle protein turnover. Muscle protein turnover is a mix between a healthy amount of muscle catabolism (breakdown) and anabolism (building). Of course, if our anabolic processes are greater than our catabolic ones, then we are indeed building muscle mass. However, unless we are exercising to build muscle (weight lifting/caisthenics), or we have low muscle mass to begin with, it is not likely that we will build a great deal of muscle just by stimulating mTOR alone. 

 

It is important to remember that all of the essential amino acids, excluding tryptophan, are required for laying down new muscle fiber2. However, although tryptophan is not incorporated into muscle protein, it is still a very imporant nutrient for brain and gut health, and should therefore be taken with the other essential amino acids. Therefore, the anabolic effects of Scivation Xtend BCAAS can be accentuated with the inclusion of a high quality food source protein or essential amino acid formulation, taken together. 

 

Scivation Xtend BCAAS are a great way to ensure that you are achieving your BCAA intake, which are great for the prevention of delayed onset muscle soreness and as a trigger for mTOR, the signal for muscle protein synthesis.
