    Please tell me that it is only to the flavoring, and not the ingredient profile.

    Also, do you know when it will be back in stock? I only have one tub left, and I can't see myself going back to another preWO product.

    We'll be removing the GMS as well.

    Hopefully should only be another 2-3 weeks.

    What was the issue with the GMS...taste?

    It does not want to dissolve.

    By GMS I assume you are referring to Glycerol Monostearate. Doesn’t this help develop a “pump” during workouts? I love the “pump” as so do most lifters. It provides motivation if nothing else. I understand that this product is not specifically designed to potentiate the “pump” but it is a very desirable benefit. If you eliminate or reduce this products ability to produce this effect, I will be greatly disappointed. I mix Ultima in a blender and notice no grittiness at all. Moreover, Glycerol normally has a sweet flavor which would actually help enhace the flavor profile and it needs all the enhancing it can get.

    Yo are correct as well, however we have had an equal number of people vehemently wanting the GMS out of there, and really, if a product is ever going to be widely accepted on the mainstream level, it has to mix perfectly and taste like candy. We're doing our best all things considered. Plus, there's more than 1 way to skin a cat...err...deliver a pump. If you noticed our label, GMS is actually prohibited for use by the NCAA. Why, I have no idea, but that is a ton of people who would otherwise greatly benefit from the product. We'll be looking at replacing the pump effect by other means from here on out.

    Are you looking to add in something else for the next run to replace the 'pump'?

    Wow. I didnt expect this.
    Personally, I think its good news as it was actually added to the WADA prohibited list this year as well.

    Although it's expensive GPLC provides a nice pump effect and is great for overall health.

    Nitrates also seem to be very useful for NO/pump. Maybe Carnitine Nitrate

    Will this product ever stay on the market with out always being out of stock, or reformulated. I was just getting back into my workouts, with the help of Ultima, and now its out of stock once again.

    There are a lot of other good preworkout supps on the market. Why not try some of the others while you are waiting. If you want a preworkout product witout a stim try PreMax. If you like stims you might want to try RagNOrok (mild stim) or Muscle Marinade (stong stim from what I hear). I personally like one scoop of PreaMax and one scoop of Rag.

    yea I know there are a lot of other products. I just like the ingredient profile of Ultima. They are using stuff that no other pre-workout/recovery supp has in it. I take most of the stuff in Ultima anyway but there are some that I don't and just really would like to see the effect of them all together.

    As far as buying a pre workout drink I don't really use them. I take some creatine and just bought some AAKG. If I need a kick I'll pop a caffeine pill every now and again but I try not too b/c it's a vaso constrictor. I do like pre-max 's profile too but i just really wanna try Ultima.

    We will not always have these issues.

    I took the liberty of having the taste drastically improved as that was the one big gripe with it. I figured 2 weeks to wait on having something actually taste half way decent was worth it. So therefore, once we get that fixed, will mean no more out of stocks in the future.

    The new and improved version tastes great. For additional energy and a stronger pump I add a couple of scoops of Flash Over.
