My old one was 12cc's new one is 15cc's any ideas?
13cc in my new watermelon. I gotta say I'm disaapointed with their QC lately.
Mine had the plastic seal on it but also had some moisture get to it. It was a little pink.
None of my recent shit is mixing right. I can't remember the last time I saw a plastic seal ...
I bought Xtend last night and there was no scoop inside of it
DPS is taking this container back as damaged. It doesn't mix properly either.
I was under the impression the stuff didn't mix well in the first place. I just bought a tub last week and after I mix it I get a bunch of white chunks at the top and foam. When I am done drinking it all the white chunks stick to the cup. I would buy the Watermelon just for a drink anyway, it tastes amazing.
I tried blending it in a mini blender but it made it worse.
xtend newbs... "The reason people have mixing problems is because L-Leucine is a very hydrophobic molecule. Because there is no polar atoms in the amino acid side chain of Leucine, this makes interactions with water in aqueous solution impossible. It has nothing to do with the quality, if anything it really points to purity. It shouldn't mix, and you should be suspicious if it does."
Best way I've found is 8-10oz of water per 3 scoops of xtend in a blender bottle and swril (not shake) several times over 5-10 minutes. Some leucine will be stuck to the bottle once finished - i refill with another 6 oz of water or so and drink it down.
just get leucine and mix with a scoop of whey
My watermelon does that, grape doesn't, orange not so much ... that blue grape raspeberry didn't either. Last time I used lemon it mixed perfectly, no clumps, no brown shit on the bottom nothing.
I wish they would do an unflavored xtend and let us mix it in our own shit ... like Pepsi or something.
um then just buy bulk BCAA powder
I have this stuff it tastes like shit but you get used to it.
I have some but Xtend has got other crap in it. I could just buy that other crap too but I would mix it wrong and give myself gyno.
other crap that doesn't do anything
different flavours of the same product occasionally have different settling levels, so they put in different sized scoops to even it out. you should still get the same weight per scoop, even if the volume is different.
also they should specify the amount of servings, ive seen it change for different flavours of ON
mine mixes fine
I think I read something before saying that the only amino acid you really need is leucine. This true?
No, you need all of the essential amino acids.
