  1. How would hemavol stack with this? I am only wondering because I've been wanting to try Hemavol, but Ultima has been so amazing that I don't feel the need to take hemavol. If they will complement eachother, I don't mind to stack them, if not, then I will stick to ultima.


  2. is ultima safe? I ordered it because I'm not a fan of the stim supplements but ultima has %125,000 of B12 you need daily, 5,882% of B2 and 2,500% of the daily B6 you need.
    We used to think that B vitamins were harmless because, like vitamin C, they're water soluble and therefore can't accumulate in the body as can the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). However, we now know that too high an intake of certain of the "B's" can present problems. For example, vitamin B6 can cause nerve toxicity although it usually doesn't cause problems in doses lower than 300 mg per day. (I have seen one case of a person on 200 mg of B6 a day who developed numbness in her legs. A neurologist told her she might have multiple sclerosis, but when she stopped taking B6, the symptoms disappeared.) I recommend a 100 to 200 mg per day trial of B6 (pyridoxine) for nerve compression injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, but I always caution patients to discontinue the vitamin if any unusual numbness develops (Weil). I am a pre-med major and this statement contridicts the knowledge that low doses of vitamin B can affect the myelin sheath protecting nerve cell, but I was wondering what you guys think there is such thing as too much of a good thing. Even though there is no stim the more I look into this produc the more I'm afraid to take any product containing 125,000% of the daily vitamin B12 your need. Thoughts?

  3. Studies have used 75mg (75,000mcg) of MB12 before with no side effects.

    With Shawn being a life-extensionist and registered Dietitian and Dana being a medical doctor, one thing that was and is paramount is safety. Not only is ULtima safe, but it is in fact healthy. A fact that really cannot be said for other pre-workout products, let along 95% of sports supplements as a whole.

  4. Ultima is out of stock at Nutra. Any more planned on coming into stock soon?

  5. Thanks for the info I agree that the omega brand is very high on safetly which is the main reason I bought the product. Actually I just recieved it and I'm sure it will be fine for me being a 23 year old healthy male I just wanted to make sure.

    Since when have the governments daily recommended allowances ever meant anything?

  8. This true because of weight differences and other hereditary factors when it comes to metabolizing vitamins and minerals differ. These percentages are a rough estimate of how much of each vitamin and mineral you need a day, but I was still concerned because this is not the first time I have heard of vitamin B in excess causing neurological problems. Look Iím not talking down on Ultima, actually on the contrary I took my first serving of the product today and loved it. I had no stim like problems and had a great workout. I trust Omega over many other companies that put anything and everything in their products without any clinical proof backing the product.

  9. I have been using ultima for a month, focus slightly above average, workouts are phenomenal.. at times I feel like could work out for hours and still be slighting myself. The taste... like monkey piss on rhinos ass ... bottled.
    Started to stack with hghup a little over week ago, so far so good.
    Just added superpump 250 lemon burst, I mix it with the ultima. It appears to change the ultima, the taste is better but the grittiness is gone. Just curious to see if anyone may see a conflict between the two.

    Yes I know some of the ingredients overlap... here is my rational.
    First I am 40yrs old, typical hardgainer, 5'10" 175lbs... I noticed I seemed to be getting a more full, dense muscle and less fatigue with the ultima. The hghup seems to be adding to this result, but I like the pump and added size factor so I stacked superpump on top of it all (Skinny kid syndrome). Also thinking of throwing in a little t-911 for ****s and giggles.

  10. As long as you dont develop any stomach discomfort, you should be good to go.

    So true. I'm supposed to weigh 185lbs at 6'3" also. LOL

  12. I love the product but hate the taste. If anyone has a way of masking the taste please post. I have been using crystal light and it helps but still....

  13. Yeah the taste does suck. But its not bad enough to make me not want to use it. The only supp that tasted so bad I couldnt use it was CL's Purple Wrath. I think they changed the taste but man that stuff was bad.

  14. Yeah, it's pretty stiff. We're making a few modifications while its out that should improve flavor quite a bit.

  15. I've actually become used to the taste. I just throw it in with 20 oz of H2O and I am good to go intra workout. Will be interested in the new flavoring though...

    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.

  17. We'll be removing the GMS as well.

    Hopefully should only be another 2-3 weeks.

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

  19. It does not want to dissolve.

  20. So that is the gritty substance? It was not so bad but I can't wait to use the new version!!

  21. 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.
