I can see it both ways, but I prefer some in there as then I don’t have to mix something else up.

Conditionally carbs are more important to me during training than many other ingredients though. 🤷‍♂️
Making an item with carbs would rule out anyone who wants to live a low carb/keto/carnivore lifestyle, which can take away from a large target market.

Granted your caloric Intake is large so for you extra carbs isn’t an issue. For many others, it could be, and some people who may be dieting or doing shows/shoots may want to allot their carbs towards food (Satiety)

Perhaps OL has done their homework on this and weighed the pros and cons of what would sell better for an intra.

This is just me thinking out loud:
Xtend has dominated the market and is 0 calories (Technically not because BCAA's have calories, but due to FDA Regulations they can label it 0), I would find it hard to see another product with carbs ever surpass that amino acid in sales due for the fact it’s flavored well and has endless potential to add other bulk items to be “flexible” for any trainee.

Again I could be wrong but that’s how I see it.

I’m okay either way whether or not a company decides to include carbs or not in their intra products.

I see the benefits both ways, and I certainly prefer carbs in my intra, but it does seem not including them is the best route from the company’s perspective.

I don’t mind shelling out additional money for performance carb powders but I wouldn’t mind a company putting together an all inclusive intra product 😉 Morphogen has a pretty solid one but it is missing a couple things still. I also like Xtend Elite.

This way you have the flexibility to add because if it is already in the profile you cannot subtract it
think some companies think intra's have to have carbs but that takes away the flexibility no?
100% agree. carbs are cheap and easy as well as can be somewhat personally dependent so yes, please!

Pretty much. As someone who can tolerate Gatorade powder intra-workout, I’d rather add it myself than pay a premium for a premium carb source that I don’t get anything extra from personally. But not everyone tolerates every carb source the same, or even wants the same amount of carbs. So I completely get it.

Olympus has also thrown 25mg of AstraGin into the supplement to support absorption.

Apple Money, Bikini Bottom, and L Squad.
Are the Olympus owners friends with Ghost? Or are we going to get some East/West BEEF over this.

As someone who almost always uses carbs intra, I still definitely agree with this.

Even my own dose of carbs varies by the session, but my amino/ergogen amounts don’t really. A blend with carbs means the customer has to go with whatever arbitrary ratio the manufacturer chose, and we all know macros are individual.

Also take into consideration personal preferences for sources, and the more intimidating higher overall price tag of something with carbs (even if it’s a good value, people see numbers and get cheap), and it’s a no-brainer.

Or just make two products that cater to people who prefer carbs and people who don’t 🤷🏻‍♂️

Just guessing the 0 carb one will outsell the carb one. That is the downfall. Companies can't just make all these SKU's consumers want because if the ROI on creating one isn't met it just doesn't do the company any favors if they don't profit off it. A great example is ergogenics (Ergonine from PES). Everyone on this forum loves it, but if you ask the general community about buying it they look at you like a deer in headlights. When it comes to supplements we are the minority compared to the general consumer who just chases a good flavored and cost-effective product. Most of us understand clinical doses and rather spend more money on a higher end profile.

just a general observation and what is best from a "Business" Practice and what we see as consumers on this board.
Could they make both? Sure, but if the carb included intra doesn’t sell well collecting dust does not help OL

I wouldn't disagree.
Every word is like a sawed-off blast
'cause y'all all soft and I'm the black hearse
that came to haul y'all ass in...
it's for the hood by the corner store
many try, many die, come at Nas if you want a war.

Get it Bloody.

Yeah they added it wrong, but it's labeled correctly on our label. It has all 9 EAA's vegan sourced. Big emphasis here was to create a straightforward Vegan EAA product. Our next 2 products Grind and Intra Drip will both hit with way heavier profiles. Grind is my favorite thus far!
ya need to update your profile logo, sir

I grabbed one of these as well. Flavor is awesome! May have to grab 1-2 more before they’re gone...
What does voodoo punch taste like?


I’m assuming just a fruit punch, but is there a twist?

Yeah it’s a very sweet fruit punch type flavor. Very kool aid like. The flavor is strong so I’ve been using 12-14 oz of water with it.

They would probably be best off marketing a separate carb-only product, to be used standalone or mixed in various amounts with their intra.



I’d hit it
Plenty of other sports and activities that carbs come in handy for

The whole “unconfirmed” issue around possible reduction of testosterone and sperm production is enough for me to say no.
Unaware and not finding much online searching for side effects so this is news to me but good to know

I have been waiting for this one. Thanks for posting it up man!
No problem. I already ordered a bottle and look forward to giving it a try. The formula is very different than anything else I've tried. All of which failed to help my insomnia...and as you know, I've tried more than a few supplements... :)
