Xtend Ripped is a branched chain amino acids (BCAA) powder with electrolytes, natural fat-burners and amino acids to help you get the most out of your exercise or weight-loss program. The BCAAs—leucine, isoleucine and valine—are three of the nine essential amino acids that we must either obtain from our diet or supplementation.
- Electrolytes for Hydration.
- Enhance Fat-Burning.
- Support Muscle Recovery.
- with CLA, Carnitine & Capsimax.
- Refreshing Flavours.
Xtend Ripped delivers plenty of leucine, identified as a major trigger for mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), the stimulus for muscle protein synthesis that tells the muscle to heal and grow (1). Simply put, this means your muscles will respond and adapt much more efficiently to the type of sports or exercise that you undertake.
More muscle mass leads to a greater calorie burn at rest or during exercise, which is good news for weight loss. Individuals who undergo weight-loss programs have a greater chance of keeping that weight off if they have built, or even just maintained, their muscle mass.
BCAA Xtend Ripped also contains the electrolytes potassium, sodium and chloride, which tend to get quite depleted whenever we lose sweat from the body. Nothing can impact exercise performance more negatively than dehydration, so ensuring that your water bottle is topped up with Xtend Ripped is a must (2). In addition to this, the key fat burners conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), L-Carnitine and cayenne fruit extract are included in this formulation, each playing their own part in elevating your metabolism and helping you to achieve your goals.
CLA is actually a fatty acid (or lipid) that is naturally found in animal fats, such as butter and meat. However, dietary levels have declined over the last few decades. This specialised little compound assists with fat burning and even muscle building. Most of us have by now heard of the dipeptide (two amino acids linked together) L-Carnitine, which we naturally synthesise in our own bodies from the essential amino acids methionine and lysine.
This dipeptide found in BCAA Xtend Ripped shunts specific fatty acids into the cell to be used as energy, and may assist with weight loss and even support energy levels. Additionally, cayenne enhances thermogenesis and elevates our metabolic rate.
Glutamine, found in Xtend Ripped, is depleted during intense bouts of exercise, while citrulline assists with blood flow to our muscle tissue, thereby supporting recovery and performance. This thermogenic BCAA can help you boost exercise performance and recovery and assist you with your weight-loss or weight-maintenance goals. And with sumtuous flavours like Xtend Ripped Watermelon lime, strawberry kiwi and blueberry lemonade, this product is as refreshing as it is performance enhancing.
