    BB Amino Recovery vs. Scivation Xtend

    So i've been using Scivation's Xtend Green Apple for the past month and now I was about to re-up and the BB.com Amino Recovery caught my eye. I compared the two and the Amino Recovery seems to have higher Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, and Citrulline content. So I was just wondering, is there anything in Xtend that Amino Recovery doesnt have, and vice versa? Just trying to get some insight before I purchase one or the either.

    There both great products. Give the Amino Recovery a shot and see what you like better would be my recommendation.

    Both are top notch, I've used tons of tubs of the Xtend and loved it, Amino Recovery is amazing too specially the Watermelon, I say try it and if you don't like it you can always go back to your Xtend

    This might be a bit of a tarp

    The main differences are: Xtend has a full spectrum electrolyte/hydration complex included, Xtend uses Citrulline Malate (more for endurance) than L-Citrulline, and Amino Recovery has a higher dose of aminos and glutamine per scoop. I'd say go ahead and try Amino Recovery and see if you like it. Xtend isn't going anywhere, so you can always go back to Xtend at a later date.

    Maybe throw some VPX Chain Drive RTD into the mix as well

    You can't make a wrong choice when choosing a BCAA/AA product, to be honest. You'll have some differences in profiles, but nothing that will make or break your goals. Also be sure to take into account the AAs you get from food and protein powders. You're more thank likely going to be getting plenty from all those sources combined.

    Have had all flavors of Amino Recovery, have had most of the reformulated flavors of Xtend....

    I much prefer Amino Recovery. The watermelon is probably the best tasting supplement I've ever had.

    Okay, well within reason. Obviously if the blend is that assinine I wouldn't buy it either. However, your amino acid supplement is not going to make or break your training or physique, that's for damn sure.

    Strong this! If a price is too good to be true or if its a company with a sketchy QC hicstory I wouldn't even think of purchasing any product of their's.
