XSurge™ - A Supplement Ingredient For Workout Recovery and Performance
Overcome your fitness barriers
You know the feeling: You're in a great workout routine when suddenly, your results (and motivation) start to decline. Even though you were feeling stronger, faster and closer to reaching your goals than ever before, your exercise routine begins to take a toll on your body, leaving you feeling sore, exhausted and frustrated. This can be the result of oxidative stress and inflammation from continuous high-intensity workouts.
XSurge is a naturally-sourced, tea-based supplement ingredient that reduces oxidative stress and enhances workout performance and recovery. When formulated into a pre-workout or post-workout supplement, XSurge:
- Boosts energy levels to increase exercise capacity and diminish feelings of fatigue during workouts.1
- Increases focus, attention, alertness and reaction speed to help you reach your peak performance.1
- Helps reduce muscle soreness after exercise, including delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and muscle inflammation after damaging exercise.2,3
- Helps increase muscle strength, power and recovery after hard-hitting workouts.2
A sports nutrition solution that's backed by clinical science
XSurge is a natural, patent-pending phenolic blend that has demonstrated effectiveness and safety in two human clinical trials.2-4 The key plant-based molecules in XSurge have been specifically studied, selected and blended to give you more energy, better performance and faster recovery without any negative side effects.
Powerfully developed for sports nutrition gains
Kemin scientists identified catechins, theaflavins, caffeine and manganese as key molecules that can provide energy, performance and recovery benefits for athletes. To create a powerful sports nutrition ingredient, we identified tea, specifically Camela sinensis, as a natural source of these key molecules. We worked with our exclusive tea supplier to screen and analyze thousands of lines of tea, from which we selected two non-GMO lines of green and black tea. Our scientists developed a proprietary blend of both teas that increase energy levels, sports performance and exercise recovery.
What gives XSurge the edge?
Unlike green teas and black teas you typically see at the grocery store, our natural blend delivers optimal levels of polyphenols, caffeine and manganese.6 XSurge has been clinically studied and shown to provide real sports nutrition benefits.
In a 13-week randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled (RDBPC) study, individuals who took XSurge showed accelerated strength recovery and minimized markers of muscle damage after exercise compared to subjects who took a placebo.1

Uncompromising quality and safety
Our elite tea is stringently grown on Rainforest Alliance Certified™ plantations. We work with dedicated farmers to hand pick tea leaves in short harvest cycles, maximizing the quality and levels of active molecules in each leaf. To extract the native molecular profile of each leaf, Kemin uses a proprietary, gentle water extraction with no harsh solvents or processing aids. XSurge is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) and meets strict regulatory requirements worldwide because of our careful sourcing and processing methods.7
XSurge: A safe and tolerable supplement ingredient for workout recovery
XSurge is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) and has been shown to be well tolerated in all human clinical trials with no adverse side effects related to the study product.1-3
Kemin's commitment to research
Kemin has conducted XSurge clinical trials with reputable sports nutrition research teams at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center and University of Central Florida.3,4 We continue to invest in an ongoing research program that includes discovery and hypothesis-driven research. Our discovery program allows us to explore novel outcomes or new market segments, while our hypothesis-driven research program includes both small- and large-scale human clinical trials to elucidate and confirm efficacy and safety.
