Scivation, Inc. (Graham, NC. USA) likes to make sure you are their key customer when it comes to high quality supplements. If you want some of the top selling products from a well known brand then you have come to the right place. Scivation is noted for being America’s principle supplier of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). BCAAs are designed for supplementation during and in between hard gym work-outs.
The Xtend range is their best-selling and most advanced BCAA drink mix ‘on the planet.’ The product contains 7g of BCAAsÂ withÂ the typical 2:1:1 ratio with glutamine and citrulline malate.Â Two pieces of research have been conducted with Scivation’s BCAAs mix in a randomized, double-blind study doing an eight-week resistance-training program (Stoppani et al., 2009; Dudgeon et al., 2016).
Look for otherÂ products of the Xtend range.
One interesting product is Quake 10.0 which comes in two flavours: watermelon bubblegum and lemon drop. It too plays on the 7g BCAA with AstraGinâ¢, PeakO blend, caffeine,Â L-tyrosine, L-theanine, L-citrulline, L-carnitine, arginine nitrate and Â a proprietary product called CaprosÂ®.
CaprosÂ® is anÂ extract from a very tart berry which grows in India and isÂ calledÂ amla (Indian Gooseberry). It is primarily composed of polyphenols and other extremely powerful antioxidants.Â These are claimed toÂ help with oxygen delivery to working musclesÂ during extreme work-outs. The intention is to ensure musclesÂ use of all the otherÂ listed ingredientsÂ in the product.Â
Astraginâ¢ is a trademarked ingredient for supporting the immune systemÂ and improving nutrient bioavailability.
PEAK O2 is described as ‘revolutionary performance-enhancing blend for maximising power output, improving exercise capacity and time-to-exhaustion. It contains various extractsÂ from assorted health mushrooms such asÂ cordyceps, Lions Mane,Â reishi, shitake and so on.
