Xtend Elite drops 125mg Ashwagandha and 3g Citrulline Malate in favor of 1g Citrulline Nitrate
New Label



#3392

This is pretty cool. While I am a fan of Ashwaganda, i’m also a fan of nitrates


#3393

125mg is pretty small to get any real benefit out of it for ashwagandha. I personally like the nitrate inclusion better. Especially if you stack with a C4 product to enhance the amount of nitrates (C4, C4 Ripped/Extreme/Ultimate or Ultimate Power)


#3394

And unless supplementing with other forms of Ashwaghanda, 125mg is negligible and won’t offer noticeable benefits, in my opinion.


#3395

Was it Sensoril or just plain jane Ashwaganda?


#3396

Normally I’ve seen Sensoril dosed at 125mg


#3397

Sensoril. I am still in favor of the Nitrate for the intra-workout instead of Ashwagandha. Just personal preference


#3398

I like both! I’ve been interested in how to keep cortisol levels in check Intra/post training. It’s a subject that’s been keeping me curious the past couple of months


#3399

Sensoril at 125mg is enough but intra doesn’t make any sense.

I love nitrates but how much of a gram of this is actually nitrates?


#3400

About 250mg


#3401

So ineffective then


#3402

Unless you dosed with nitrates for your pre-workout. I think this is sort of a “pinch” to extend the benefits you may already have.


#3403

Correct, just like I stated above
You can stack Xtend Elite with any of their C4 pre-workouts to give you extra nitrates from their ingredient profiles.


#3404

This is going to look very slick in their new labeling.


#3405

Nitrates need an acute and fairly high dose for their effects. I don’t see how adding not enough (actually can reverse instead) then sipping another smaller dosage over an hour or two well after the first dosecan make this effective unless someone with research can show otherwise.


#3406

Valid point, but it will vary from person to person. For example, my intra is taken roughly 45min after my pre, so I think there is a compound effect. Speaking anecdotally of course.

Dragonfruit EAA Pure
Next up from Nutrabio


#3408

Dragon Fruit itself, tastes like fruit that gave up on life… it’s void of flavor, at best tastes like an extremely weak kiwi.


#3409

I have not been let down by a nutrabio flavor I have tried in any of their amino’s or pre-workouts. I won’t make an assumption until I give it a crack. Their Cherry Limeade was flawless.


#3410

I’m speaking strictly of the fruit itself… it’s not sweet or sour or tart, it’s a nothing.

Prob smart calling it “candy”, so it can be sweet in flavor
