10 reviews for Terminus

  1. Andrew Becker (verified owner)

    Terminus was a game changer for me when it comes to a recovery drink. I have tried so many, and until Terminus they all messed my stomach up, or didn’t sit right. Not with this. No issues after drinking it. I also really like the flavor and texture. It isn’t chalky like so many other products are. It really shows Ultraverse uses top of the line ingredients to make this quality product.

      Thanks for the review, Andrew! We are so glad that you love Terminus and that it doesn’t upset your stomach like many other products do. We are big fans of the flavor too!

    Great product. I used to use whey protein, but now that I am using this formula – it’s definitely better with a more comprehensive formula. It is helping me to recover faster and also I am doing more volume per week without feeling miserable. I can’t give full credit for that to this, but definitely it’s a part of it

    I’m 50+ and just over two years into training for ultras. My daily routine included taking acetaminophen every morning and before/after every long run. Since I started using Terminus several weeks ago, I no longer use pain medication. Not only do I recover pain free, but the quality of my second-day long runs have improved dramatically.

    • Admin

      Thank you so much for the review, Ed! We couldn’t be happier that Terminus has eliminated your need for pain meds before and after your runs. It makes our day to hear things like this!

    Being a competitive runner for over 20 years, and a Ultra runner for the past 5 I have tried about every supplement on the market. Terminus is one of those supplements you hear about from friends and don’t believe the hype until you try it for yourself. As an ultra athlete I am running 50 to 100 miles a week so recovery time is a huge part of my planning. This product allows me to recover faster, and get back out to doing what I love, running in nature.

    • Admin

      We are so happy to hear Terminus is helping with your ultra-running recovery! We are ultra-runners too 😉 Terminus was formulated to meet the recovery needs of demanding endurance sports (like ultra-running) better than any other endurance recovery formula on the market. It’s a pleasure to hear that it’s working as intended for you. Thank you, Tyler!

    Terminus is a game Changer! I’ve been using Terminus for a couple of months now. After day one I started to notice a difference. It has changed my recover and performance by a tremendous amount. I used to be sore and lethargic, dreading my long runs. Now, I recover quickly, feeling refreshed and top of my world. This is the best recovery product on the market!

    • Admin

      Thank you, Steven! Terminus was formulated to be exactly that – the best endurance recovery formula on the market. It’s always wonderful to see products working for our customers exactly as intended. We appreciate your review and your business!

  6. Amanda Cross (verified owner)

    I started using T-30 and Terminus a few months ago and it has been a game changer in my running. Before I started using it I felt like I struggled to make though any sort of long run and never looked forward to doing them. Once I started T-30 longs run became so easy! My endurance has changed exponentially! This product really has changed my life! I no longer dread having to do long runs but instead embrace them and can’t wait to get out for one.
    Terminus is hands down the best recovery I have tried! I did my first half marathon without it and felt like my body was just missing something and I just felt really sluggish all day. My second half marathon I used Terminus afterwards and I felt a HUGE difference between the two races. When using Terminus I felt like my body come back life and I no longer felt sluggish! The Cinnamon Toast Crunch taste is amazing! I will never do any long runs if I can’t have this with me when I get done!

    I have experience using a competing product in Tailwind Rebuild. As an older ultra athlete, efficient, adequate recovery is vital during intense training cycles and in managing the day when I’m not training. Literally instantly I noticed a profound difference in Terminus compared to the other recovery product I had been using. With Terminus you can literally feel the product take effect used after intense training. No more fog, increased energy, less muscle soreness and fatigue, and electrolytes to replenish what was lost. All of those benefits plus it taste great, I’m finding myself looking forward to my Terminus fix as the run or training is winding down, it’s a reward for the effort. Give it a shot you won’t be sorry!

    • Chase Hammond

      Thank you so much for your detailed review Troy! We are getting such amazing feedback on Terminus. It really is something that you can almost immediately feel a difference with, which isn’t something people are used to with a recovery product! No more being trashed for the rest of the day after long strenuous workouts! Thanks again for you support and business.

  8. Tasha Eichman (verified owner)

    Terminus has been a game changer in my recovery! I’ve recently started adding miles on to my long runs but by the end of these runs I’d be stuck in a fog for several hours and totally drained for the rest of the day (I even debated giving up the long runs altogether). Since starting Terminus I don’t have to deal with any of the runners fog and can function like normal for the remainder of my day! Love it and will be reordering!

    • Admin

      We are SO glad you didn’t have to stop doing your long runs. Sorry…LOL! You’re right, taking Terminus following an exhaustive effort leaves you feeling SO much better the rest of the day. Plus, you can rest assured you’ve recovered OPTIMALLY. Thank you for your positive feedback and thank you for your support. We appreciate you. Good luck with your endurance training!

    Holy cow this tastes good. I’m able to rally after mile mileage(averaging 13 a day and up to 20) and head straight to the weight room to work on some strength and injury prevention. On top of that I typically go to work at a shoe store for 6 hours. Terminus not only tastes delightful but helps me refill my glycogen to still be energized and be adequately recovering after my endurance training. After looking into the science behind the pea and rice protein as well as the dextrose I am convinced this is the best endurance recovery formula I have ever had. And once again, it tastes so good!

    • Admin

      Thank you so much for your review! When we formulated Terminus we looked through countless hours of scientific research and also at every other endurance recovery formula that we could find. We were determined to create the best recovery supplement for endurance athletes on the market, price be damned. We think we achieved that…and it sounds like you do too! Thank you for being part of Team Ultraverse!

Terminus - The best endurance recovery supplement
What Makes Terminus So Beneficial?

Learn More About The Ingredients

Non-GMO Dextrose

Dextrose (glucose) is a natural, ultra fast-absorbing sugar, which maximizes glycogen resynthesis and drives nutrients into your cells within the 30-minute recovery window.

Organic Plant Protein Blend

Terminus contains an optimal 70:30 pea to brown rice protein ratio.  This ratio ensures a complete amino acid profile, which leads to enhanced digestibility and optimal recovery.

Optimal Carb:Protein Ratio

Terminus is formulated with a 3.3:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio. The scientific literature has established that a range of between 3:1 and 4:1 is optimal for post-endurance exercise.

Premium Ingredients

Rather than use cheaper, less absorbable, and, ultimately, less beneficial varieties, we used ideal forms of vitamins and minerals uncommonly found in other recovery supplements. Some examples are B12 as methylcobalamin, B6 as pyridoxal 5’-phosphate, zinc as zinc picolinate, folate in the methylated MTHF form, and magnesium as magnesium glycinate.

Additional Glutamine

Glutamine levels decrease following exhaustive exercise.  Studies show that glutamine improves recovery and glycogen replenishment, boosts immunity, and prevents overtraining.  Additionally, glutamine has been shown to reduce exercise-induced intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome).  This may prevent GI distress, which is commonly associated with ultra-endurance exercise.

Vegan BCAAs

Additional BCAAs enhance muscle recovery and protein synthesis, and boost immunity. BCAAs have also been shown to promote glycogen replenishment post-exercise.  While most BCAAs are made with less than desirable ingredients (animal fur/hair, duck feathers, and human hair), Terminus contains higher quality vegan  BCAAs.


Research shows that L-carnitine repairs damaged muscles, increases fat oxidation, and aids in the overall recovery process.  L-carnitine is crucial for energy metabolism and cardiovascular health.  Those who follow a plant-based diet are especially vulnerable to an L-carnitine insufficiency. 

B Vitamins

B Vitamins are critical for immunity, efficient macronutrient metabolism (energy production), red blood cell synthesis, and muscle repair.


Sufficient electrolyte intake prevents cramping, promotes antioxidant synthesis, and assists in muscle contractions and nutrient metabolism. 


Endurance exercise depletes zinc.  The amount of zinc depletion increases relative to the amount of sweat from exercise.  Insufficient zinc leads to lower endurance capacity, impaired immune function, and, ultimately, crippled performance.  Our formulation includes zinc picolinate.  Research has demonstrated increased absorbability with picolinate compared to other, cheaper forms of zinc commonly found in other products.
