Optimum Nutrition – Gold Standard® Pre Advanced – Product Overview

Optimum Nutrition throws down a surprise release and updates their Gold Standard Pre with an Advanced version. This time they bring the NO3-T Creatine Nitrate to the table with a solid 1.2 grams stacked on top of their creatine nitrate (from Thermolife.) Other popular brands like Cellucor C4 , etc.. have used Creatine Nitrate for a long while to add fullness and pump to their preworkout products.

Looks like it hosts an elemental 5 grams of creatine at those doses, which is a trend of not just dosing creatine to a total of 5g but rather 5g plus to account for the fact the monohydrate,the nitrate or HCL portion takes up some room of that 5g and is not just pure creatine (Each different creatine has varying percentages of “creatine”.) They also stack it up with 300mg of caffeine, a solid 6g of L-Citrulline ( not the malate form), and a full 3.2g clinical dose of the Carnosyn Beta Alanine.

Looks like right now GNC is getting the exclusive on launch and not sure where it will show up elsewhere but at $35 bucks and for 20 servings its looking like Optimum is using their massive buying power and quantities to order to get that price on the down low….
