T-30 – The KING of Endurance Supplements


T “Minus” 30 is the most comprehensive endurance supplement on the planet

T-30 is vegan, keto-friendly, gluten-free, and free from nuts, soy, artificial sweeteners, and banned substances.  It is a combination of 7 of the best endurance supplements (according to research), plus 2 additional synergistic ingredients.  All ingredients are in scientifically appropriate doses while remaining well under all Tolerable Upper Intake levels.  Only ingredients that have been frequently distinguished as safe are used in T-30.

Many of the ingredients in T-30 you don’t “feel” working. 

You won’t feel HMB and BCAAs preserving your muscles during long workouts.  In fact, you will not “feel” many of the benefits mentioned below.  However, the science is clear, these ingredients work and will lead to improved performance over time.  

Here are some things that you will likely notice when you take T-30 as directed.  

1st day – 1st week – You may notice a lower heart rate at the same intensity and lower perceived effort during activity.  Increased alertness and focus may also be noticeable as early as the first session.

1-2 weeks – You may start to notice that you handle stress better and feel more alert, focused, and energetic.

2 weeks – 1 month – You will likely notice decreased recovery time between hard sessions*

1-2 months – You will likely see improved body composition due to maintenance of lean muscle*

1-3 months (and beyond) – Consistent improvements in performance, enhanced recovery, improved aerobic, anaerobic, and mental endurance*

 *this benefit will be significantly improved with the addition of Terminus, which was created not only to be the best stand-alone endurance recovery supplement on the market but also to work synergistically with T-30

These are only a few of the benefits you may experience when taking T-30.  Others may include – increased testosterone in men, improved immunity, improved fat oxidation, better sleep quality, stronger erections in men due to increased blood flow, an overall sense of well-being, and MANY more (see below). 

REMEMBER, T-30 is not just a “pre-workout” supplement

It is a DAILY endurance supplement that should be used the entirety of your training season for optimal results.  We suggest taking T-30 thirty minutes before workouts because you may feel a boost in focus, alertness, and energy. Additionally,  HMB and BCAAs are most beneficial when taken prior to your workout.  On non-workout days you can take T-30 whenever you’d like, but early is ideal due to the possible boost in energy and alertness.

T-30 IS NOT a stimulant. 

You won’t feel a caffeine boost when you take T-30 like you do when you take a “pre-workout.”  Caffeine is a tremendous performance enhancer and would absolutely work synergistically with T-30.  However, caffeine tolerance varies dramatically from person to person.  Additionally, many enjoy specific caffeine sources before exercise, such as coffee, tea, etc.  Finally, some find it beneficial to ween off of caffeine prior to extremely long events to increase sensitivity to caffeine.  This is why we chose to leave caffeine out of T-30.  Caffeine is a simple, cheap addition that anyone can incorporate on their own terms. 

After reading about the ingredients below, you will see why we say T-30 is one of the most meticulously thought-out endurance supplements ever formulated.  Proven endurance benefits, scientifically relevant doses, and comprised entirely of supplements that are best taken daily.  This is truly THE KING of endurance supplements, all for about $2/day.  WE GUARANTEE RESULTS.  For more information on our guarantee, see https://ultraversesupplements.com/faq.  


making t-30T-30 is undoubtedly the best endurance supplement out there for ultra-runners, ironman triathletes, and for ANY endurance athlete for that matter. However, the ingredients in T-30 would be highly beneficial to explosive athletes as well. Weight lifters, CrossFit athletes, MMA fighters, and almost ANY athlete can benefit from T-30.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND T-30 – the Ultimate Endurance Supplement

It’s easy to make claims.

Anyone can SAY that their formula does this or that. But, when it comes down to it, what does the scientific evidence say? And if there’s no scientific evidence to support such a claim, how can such statements be justified? I can’t even begin to guess the number of hours that went into creating T-30. At Ultraverse Supplements, we aren’t about empty claims that can’t be backed up.  Our formulations are entirely evidence-based.  Don’t believe us?  Check out all the ingredients in T-30 below, complete with scientific references, and appropriate doses.


Benefits of BCAAs for Endurance Athletes:

  • Muscle Preservation (Dudgeon et al., 2016)
  • Delayed cognitive fatigue (Gervasi et al., 2020)
  • Improved recovery (Howatson et al., 2012)
  • Increased Protein Synthesis (Howatson et al., 2012)
  • Decreased Soreness (VanDusseldorp et al., 2018)
  • Reduced muscle damage (Coombes & McNaughton, 2000)
  • Inhibits exercise-induced cortisol (Tsuda et al., 2020)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 10-20g, or 100-200mg/kg (Fouré & Bendahan, 2017) (Shimomura et al., 2006)

T-30 Dose:

  • 10g

BCAAs are Most Effective When Taken Daily

  • Prolonged intake shows greater benefit than acute intake.  Muscle damage is best reduced when taken a minimum of 10 consecutive days. (Fouré & Bendahan, 2017)

Tolerable Upper Intake:

  • 35 grams for an average-weight adult male or 500mg/kg (Riazi et al., 2003) have both been indicated.  The estimated TUI for BCAAs is primarily a result of a possible rise in serum ammonia.  As you will see in the next section, citrulline malate helps to prevent ammonia accumulation.  

Citrulline Malate

Benefits of Citrulline Malate for Endurance Athletes:Citrulline Malate for Endurance

  • Increased nitric oxide (Romero et al., 2006)
  • Improved aerobic performance (Suzuki et al., 2016)
  • Increased blood flow (Rogers et al., 2020)
  • Improved muscle recovery (Rhim et al., 2020)
  • Promotes energy production (Bendahan et al., 2002)
  • Prevents ammonia accumulation (Takeda et al., 2011)
  • Increases protein synthesis (Jourdan et al., 2015)
  • Decreases amino acid breakdown (Takeda et al., 2011)
  • May increase growth hormone post-exercise (Takeda et al., 2011)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 6-8g(Bailey et al., 2015)

T-30 Dose:

  • 8g

Citrulline Malate is Most Effective When Taken Daily

Taking a single dose has minimal benefit.  Performance benefits come with consistent use of about a week or longer (Bailey et al., 2015).

Tolerable Upper Intake:

Studies show 15 grams is well tolerated (Moinard et al., 2008).


Benefits of Beta-Alanine for Endurance Athletes:beta-alanine for endurance

  • Improves muscular endurance (Trexler et al., 2015)
  • Increases time to exhaustion (Hobson et al., 2013)
  • Improves exercise volume (Hoffman et al., 2008)
  • Improves body composition/lean mass (Smith et al., 2009)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 2-5g (Stellingwerff et al., 2012)

T-30 Dose:

  • 3g

Beta-Alanine is Most Effective When Taken Daily

Beta-alanine needs to be taken consistently for a minimum of 4 weeks to see optimal results (Trexler et al., 2015). 

Tolerable Upper Intake:

6 grams has been used for loading with no adverse effects.  TUI is likely much higher.  Often causes paresthesia (tingling) at recommended doses.   Paresthesia has not been shown to be harmful in any way (Stellingwerff et al., 2012).

Calcium HMB

Benefits of Calcium HMB for Endurance Athletes:

  • Improves body composition/lean mass (Wilson et al., 2013)
  • Preserves muscle during prolonged exercise (Park et al., 2013)
  • Preserves muscle when calorically deficient (Park et al., 2013)
  • Improves recovery (Wilson et al., 2013) 
  • Decreases soreness when taken before exercise (Wilson et al., 2008)
  • Improves fat oxidation (Wilson et al., 2008)
  • Improves aerobic performance (Durkalec-Michalski & Jeszka, 2016)
  • Stimulates protein synthesis (Wilson et al., 2013)
  • Improves mitochondrial biogenesis (He et al., 2016)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 1-3g (Wilson et al., 2013)

T-30 Dose:

  • 3g

Calcium HMB is Most Effective When Taken Daily

Calcium HMB is most effective when taken consistently for at least 2 weeks (Wilson et al., 2013).

Tolerable Upper Intake:

No observed adverse effect level

  • >38g for 150lb adult estimated.  Standard doses over long periods of time cause little safety concern (Rathmacher et al., 2004).


Benefits of Taurine for Endurance Athletes:

taurine for endurance

  • Prevents taurine deficiency
  • Increases fat oxidation (Imagawa et al., 2009)
  • Improves endurance performance (Imagawa et al., 2009)
  • Decreases muscle soreness (Ra et al., 2013)
  • Improves time to exhaustion (Yatabe et al., 2009)
  • Decreases muscle damage (Ra et al., 2013)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 500mg-6g (Waldron et al., 2018)

T-30 Dose:

  • 1.5g

Taurine is Most Effective When Taken Daily

Taurine should be taken every day to prevent a taurine deficiency that may result from chronic beta-alanine supplementation.  Taurine can, however, result in endurance benefits from a single dose (Waldron et al., 2018).  Plant-based diets can also result in Taurine insufficiency.

Tolerable Upper Intake:

3g/day over a lifetime of use should produce no adverse effects (Shao & Hathcock, 2008).

N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC)

Benefits of NAC for Endurance Athletes:

  • Synergistic Ingredient (works synergistically with citrulline malate)
  • Slows N.O. breakdown (Efrati et al., 2003)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 200-600mg (Grucza et al., 2019)

T-30 Dose:

  • 200 mg (Used conservatively in T-30 due to possible GI effects at higher doses)

NAC is Most Effective When Taken Daily

To increase glutathione, and in turn, slow the breakdown of N.O., consistent use in combination with Citrulline is likely needed.

Tolerable Upper Intake:

4000mg.  However, nausea has been reported from doses as low as 600mg.

CDP Choline

Benefits of CDP Choline for Endurance Athletes:

  • Prevents choline deficiency, in which endurance athletes are more vulnerable (Penry & Manore, 2008).

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • Used in amounts purely to prevent deficiency.  Other products use high doses for “possible” performance benefits.  Due to limited evidence for performance benefits and potential side effects from excessive amounts, we err on the side of caution.  200 mg in addition to a high-quality diet should be sufficient to prevent deficiency in the vast majority of athletes.

T-30 Dose:

  • 200 mg

CDP Choline is Most Effective When Taken Daily

To prevent deficiency, daily use is recommended.

Tolerable Upper Intake:

3500mg/day may cause harmful side effects (Wallace et al., 2018).  These amounts are only possible through excessive supplementation.

Organic Vegan KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract 

Benefits of Ashwagandha for Endurance Athletes:

ashwagandha for endurance

  • Improves endurance (Choudhary et al., 2015)
  • Increases energy (Mikolai et al., 2009)
  • Improves muscle recovery and strength (Wankhede et al., 2015)
  • Improves sleep quality (Sikandan et al., 2018)
  • Decreases serum cortisol (Salve et al., 2019)
  • Increases VO2 max (Shenoy et al., 2012)
  • Increases testosterone in men (Choudhary et al., 2015)
  • Reduces stress and improves the quality of life (Yatabe et al., 2009)
  • Improved immunity (Mikolai et al., 2009)
  • Anti-inflammatory (Sikandan et al., 2018)

Scientifically Appropriate Dose:

  • 300-500mg EXTRACT (not purely root).  

T-30 Dose:

  • 300 mg vegan KSM-66 extract.  KSM-66 is the most potent, scientifically-backed extract on the market.

Ashwagandha is Most Effective When Taken Daily

Benefits associated with Ashwagandha are experienced when used daily, and some benefits are not fully experienced for up to two months (Chandrasekhar et al., 2012).

Tolerable Upper Intake:

No TUI established.  Likely well above 10x the recommended dose (>3000mg)

Rhodiola Rosea Extract (3% Rosavins, 1% Salidroside)

Benefits of Rhodiola Rosea Extract for Endurance Athletes:

  • Increases alertness (Kasper & Dienel, 2017)
  • Increases time to exhaustion (Noreen et al., 2013)
  • Improves cortisol response (Kasper & Dienel, 2017)
  • Improves cognition (Kasper & Dienel, 2017)
  • Reduces stress (Kasper & Dienel, 2017)
  • Prevents fatigue (Lekomtseva et al., 2017)

  • 50-500mg (EXTRACT conferring 3% rosavins and 1% salidroside)

T-30 Dose:

  • 150 mg extract (3% rosavins and 1% salidroside)

Rhodiola Rosea is Most Effective When Taken Daily

To experience the benefits listed, Rhodiola should be taken chronically.

Tolerable Upper Intake:

No TUI established.  Rhodiola is considered safe and is very well tolerated.  (Panossian et al., 2010).
