Several companies have been exposed for the practice of spiking protein with free form aminos instead of base protein powder. These unscrupulous companies are increasing their profit margins by adding cheap fillers to their products and deceiving the consumer. NEWSFLASH: The pre-workout category is far worse than the protein spiking fiasco. Whereas companies have been shamed into being more transparent with their protein formulations, similar treachery continues unabated in the pre-workout category.
Most pre-workouts on the market today are filled with heavy stimulants and rely on over stimulating the central nervous system (CNS) which, eventually, creates long term problems for individual users. These pre-workouts are specifically designed to trick you into feeling energized, but provide no real ergogenic benefit to your workout, and what’s more? They leave you lethargic once the stimulant high subsides, and addicted to chasing that stim feeling again.
Another tactic that companies employ is including ingredients in their product that can be beneficial to your workout, but underdose them to the point that you do not realize any tangible benefits. They escape accountability by hiding behind a “proprietary blend” consisting of well known ingredients. Through pure marketing these supplement manufacturers are able to mask poorly formulated and underdosed ingredients behind a “proprietary blend,” calling their product a game changer. Do not be fooled, everyone knows how these ingredients should be dosed to be effective, it is no secret. These companies don’t use proprietary blends to hide some sort of “magical formula” with the “perfect ratio” so competitors can’t steal their idea. Their sole motivation is to maximize profits regardless of the ethical implications.
Olympus Labs has never condoned, nor have we ever needed to employ such tactics to sell our products. We only formulate innovative products that deliver results, based on clinically efficacious doses. We stand by our commitment to our mission statement:
Innovation. Value. Results.
These are the three pillars of our company. What that means for the consumer is effective products with clinically dosed ingredients, in a transparent formula. That is exactly what you will get in CONQU3R Unleashed.
CONQU3R Unleashed is an all-in-one formula that contains only the highest quality ingredients, including 5 patented ingredients, an unparalleled feat in sports nutrition! Furthermore, each ingredient is supported by human data, because there are no rodents allowed on Mount Olympus. But that’s not enough, we carefully selected the doses to provide optimal results. CONQU3R Unleashed is comprised of 4 main matrices delivering laser focus, extreme energy,
an incredible pump, and amazing endurance.
In addition, we made a significant discovery of a new, naturally occurring stimulant with the one and only, J. Regia. Through internal testing, J. Regia provided extreme focus and energy. So extreme that we structured the entire energy blend of CONQU3R Unleashed to complement this one ingredient and the synergy it provided. Since we vastly improved the energy aspect of CONQU3R Unleashed there was no other choice but to intensify the pump and endurance aspects to match the intensity. The outcome? The barriers to success have been removed, CONQU3R is now Unleashed!
- Laser Focus
- Incredible Energy
- Insane Pumps
- Amazing Endurance
Maximum Endurance Matrix:
If you are going to the gym and short staying your visit due to the inability of lifting any longer, you are missing out on precious gains. CONQU3R Unleashed has you covered with two ATP generating compounds, 2 g of Creatinol-O-Phosphate (COP) and 150 mg of ElevATP®. ATP, adenosine triphosphate, is known as the cell’s energy currency. In fact, ATP production during weight-lifting or anaerobic events, such as high-intensity repeated, short but intense bursts of activity are largely fueled by anaerobic respiration and through another mechanism of action known as phosphorylation. Phosphorylation is how creatine exerts its potent ATP generating effects and it has been hypothesized that COP elicits its results via the same mechanism or by acting as an intracellular buffer.
Creatinol-O-Phosphate is a synthetic analogue of creatine, but it should not be confused with creatine as it does not carry the same benefits. It is actually metabolized as creatinol in the body once it loses the phosphorous group. It is a relatively new ingredient designed to aid in strength, performance, and recovery. Although COP has been shown to increase ATP like creatine, it has a higher rate of absorption in muscle tissue. This will result in greater contractility of muscles meaning users are able to carry out a longer anabolic load. Punishing your muscles for a longer period of time will help users gain more strength and size! COP has been proven to possess anti-ischemic and anti-arrhythmic activities associated with improved ionic balance and heart performance.
In a study of patients with acute myocardial infarction, the levels of six serum enzymes were investigated following supplementation with 3 g of COP. After 3 days, the six enzymes all decreased between 33% and 49% in the COP group as compared with the placebo group, reaching a degree of statistical significance of less than 0.01. The decrease in these enzymes was attributed to the protective action of COP on cell membrane permeability, in agreement with a series of previous studies, and suggests COP has a cardioprotective effect.
ElevATP® is a patented ingredient consisting of a proprietary blend of plant bio-inorganic trace minerals and a polyphenol-rich apple extract. ElevATP® will increase levels of ATP in human blood following ingestion. I know what you are thinking, oral Adenosine 5’-Triphosphate DiSodium (ATP) is already widely available. While that is true, ElevATP® seeks to remedy several issues with supplementation with oral ATP; its poor bioavailability and its tendency to increase reactive oxygen species (ROS) and lactic acid production.
In a double blind, placebo-controlled study, 18 generally healthy adults were given either a 150 mg dose of ElevATP® or 50 mg of an encapsulated silica oxide (placebo). The researchers measured an acute increase in blood levels of ATP by 64% (P=0.02) when compared to the placebo group. In addition, the ROS and lactate level in the supplemented group were unchanged.
A second study with 20 healthy subjects who had fasted overnight (12-16 hours) and were administered a single, 150 mg serving dose of ElevATP® also showed an increase in blood levels of ATP. The average levels of the control group were measured as 40% over baseline levels at 60 minutes and 28% over baseline levels at 120 minutes. Similar to the first study, ATP levels in cell-free plasma and lactate levels remained unchanged.
Incredible Pump Matrix:
If that endurance matrix wasn’t powerful enough on its own, the pump matrix in CONQU3R Unleashed is composed of four ingredients: 4 g of L-citrulline, 2 g of HydroMax™ Glycerol, 1.5 g Nitrosigine™ and 1 g Agmatine that help reduce fatigue and also improve endurance. However, these four ingredients were primarily selected for their ability to increase blood flow. The pump effect achieved through the delivery of sufficient blood and oxygen to your muscles will ultimately lead to muscle growth. Of course CONQU3R Unleashed is designed with clinically effective doses to induce an insane pump, like nothing you have ever experienced.
L-citrulline increases arginine and ornithine plasma content, resulting in a spike in nitric oxide levels which gives you that sought after pump effect. But wait, if L-citrulline will increase plasma levels of arginine and ornithine why not just supplement with L-arginine and L-ornithine directly? The problem is that L-arginine and L-ornithine are not absorbed by the body as well as L-citrulline. You would need upwards of 10 g or more which may cause GI distress.
In a study in healthy males, L-citrulline dose-dependently increased AUC and Cmax of plasma L-arginine concentration more effectively than L-arginine (P < 0.01). Moreover, urinary nitrate and cGMP were increased from 92 ± 10 to 125 ± 15 µmol mmol−1 creatinine (P = 0.01, 95% CI 8, 58) and from 38 ± 3.3 to 50 ± 6.7 nmol mmol−1 creatinine (P = 0.04, 95% CI 0.4, 24), respectively.
Glycerol is a naturally occurring metabolite that has several benefits for athletes. It can prevent athletes and bodybuilders from becoming dehydrated during the course of strenuous aerobic or anaerobic exercise. Glycerol can also enhance exercise performance and endurance for bodybuilders because it can keep the body hyper-hydrated.
It has been demonstrated in human studies that hyperhydration with glycerol combined with water is far superior to water alone, and significantly increased fluid retention by approximately 900 mL over placebo. Of course an endurance athlete can also drink an over exceeding amount of water, however this will only help the athlete reach a temporary state of hyperhydration due to the fall in osmolarity causing the kidneys to remove the excess water and causing the athlete to make frequent trips to the bathroom.
Regular Glycerol Monostearate (GMS) contains only 5-12% free molecular glycerol, which is nowhere near the acceptable or effective range of glycerol supplementation. CONQU3R Unleashed uses, HydroMax™ Glycerol, highly concentrated powdered glycerol which yields 65% free molecular glycerol. This means 1.5 g of CONQU3R Unleashed’s HydroMax™ Glycerol equates to more than 8 g of standard GMS found on the market!
Glycerol’s osmoprotective solute quality can be used to improve physical endurance. The reduction in serum blood osmolality and the effects on ionic gradients caused by glycerol ingestion delay fatigue; therefore, endurance and athletic performance are improved.
In a study assessing the effect of glycerol supplementation on aerobic and anaerobic performance of athletes and sedentary subjects, 40 volunteers were divided into four groups. The first was the placebo group (S), which only consumed water; the second group (GS) consumed glycerol followed by water. Neither of these groups did any exercise for 20 days. The third and fourth groups consisted of the exercise group subjects; they were required to perform a 20-m shuttle run test every day for 20 days. The third group’s subjects, the exercise placebo (E), only consumed water. The last group (GE) consumed glycerol followed by water. The glycerol supplement was found to have an increasing effect on aerobic and anaerobic performance in GS, E and GE. A similar effect was found for the covered distances and time in the same groups.

Nitrosigine™ is a patented complex of bonded arginine silicate scientifically designed to significantly boost nitric oxide (NO) levels. We previously reviewed the positive effect from arginine on NO. Unlike supplementing directly with L-arginine which could get “messy,“ the Nitrosigine™ complex was shown in preclinical (animal) studies to be absorbed efficiently, raising plasma arginine and silicon levels. Silicon can strengthen and provide flexibility to your arterial walls, helping to increase blood flow. Silicon is not well absorbed through dietary intake, but Nitrosigine™ was shown in preclinical studies to dramatically increase silicon absorption.
Another study found that a complex of arginine-silicate in an efficiently absorbed form, improves vascular function and reduces nephropathy in an animal model of insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease whereas arginine-hcl was not effective.
In a study in healthy males, supplementation with Nitrosigine™ caused an acute increase in arginine, as quick as 30 minutes. The study also found a significant increase in arginine blood levels for up to 3 hours and silicon levels for up to 1.5 hours. Furthermore, the data showed an increased trend in baseline levels of arginine after subsequent use. So drink CONQU3R Unleashed 30 minutes before your workout, get a crazy pump for the whole duration and then get a better pump next workout. Sign me up!
Agmatine ((4-aminobutyl)guanidine) is known as the ultimate nitric oxide enhancing ingredient. It is a byproduct of arginine produced through a process called decarboxylation. Agmatine is similar to arginine but with the carboxylic acid end removed. Agmatine’s primary benefit occurs when it interacts with endothelial cells. These cells form a thin layer along blood vessel walls. As agmatine molecules pass through blood vessels, they attach to receptors on endothelial cell membranes. In response, endothelial cells make nitric oxide, a gas that dilates blood vessels.
A study was conducted examining the effects of agmatine on endothelial cell function by using cultured bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells. Agmatine stimulated nitrite production three-fold above basal nitrite formation by endothelial cells. This result suggests agmatine can act directly on endothelial cells to increase the synthesis of nitric oxide.
Immaculate Focus & Energy Matrix:
Unlike companies that use different forms of caffeine and call it a stimulant blend, CONQU3R Unleashed only features stimulants that work synergistically to provide maximum focus and energy. The immaculate focus and energy that CONQU3R Unleashed delivers is powered by a mixture of caffeine, the patented version of Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (Alpha-GPC), AlphaSize®, Higenamine, and an exciting new stimulant, J. Regia. Caffeine is well known for its ability to increase focus, mental alertness and exercise performance. Alpha-GPC (AlphaSize®) is a powerful nootropic that contributes to the laser focus in CONQU3R Unleashed. J. Regia is a potent extract of a naturally occurring stimulant that will provide an extreme level of focus and energy in combination with the other ingredients in this matrix.
Caffeine is the most widely used stimulant in sports and for good reason, it is proven and effective, it is the creatine of stimulants if you will. Caffeine increases focus, mental alertness, exercise performance, and reduces symptoms of fatigue due to its ability of producing higher dopamine levels in areas of the brain that are linked to “attention.” Caffeine has been found to improve focus and concentration during activity, even when an athlete has not slept well.
Caffeine can also improve physical performance and endurance during high intensity activity. It has been found to increase muscle contractility and can improve the time before exhaustion, helping you crank out a few more sets!
Furthermore, due to an increase in free fatty acid oxidation, caffeine will have a sparing effect on glycogen. Research has shown caffeine will elicit an ergogenic effect during endurance exercise performance, especially during periods of glycogen depletion. These results suggest supplementation with caffeine would provide performance benefits when training fasted or on a low carb diet.
In a study with collegiate football players at the NFL combine, the effect of caffeine on performance-based anaerobic exercise tests was examined. Testing showed 59% of the participants improved in performance with the caffeine during the bench press and the 40-yard dash.
Alpha-GPC increases levels of acetylcholine in the body, which help give an increased focus during a workout. It is an ideal ingredient to supplement pre-workout on an empty stomach. CONQU3R Unleashed uses the patented version, AlphaSize®, which just so happens to be supported by human data. That is not a coincidence! AlphaSize® has also been found to improve power output.
In a randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover design, seven men with at least two years of resistance training experience ingested 600 mg A-GPC (as AlphaSize®) or a placebo 90-minutes prior to completing 6 sets × 10 repetitions of Smith Machine squats at 70% of their predetermined 1-repetition maximum. Measurements were taken 30 minutes post-exercise and then the subjects performed three sets of bench press throws at 50% of their predetermined 1-repetition maximum to assess peak force, peak power, and rate of force development. All trials were performed after an overnight fast, a 48-hour abstention from intense exercise, and during the same time of day to minimize diurnal variation. Compared to baseline (pre) values, peak growth hormone (GH) increased 44-fold during A-GPC (from 0.19 ± 0.06 to 8.4 ± 2.1 ng/mL) vs. 2.6-fold during placebo (from 1.9 ± 0.8 to 5.0 ± 4.8 ng/mL, P < 0.03) (Figure 3). Peak bench press force was 14% greater in A-GPC (933 ± 89 N) vs. placebo (818 ± 77 N, P < 0.02).
Figure 3. Change in growth hormone of subjects post-exercise (A-GPC vs placebo)
Research has also shown it should improve your ability to lose fat over time due to an increase in hepatic (liver) fat oxidation. In the same study, a significant increase in growth hormone was measured after 60 minutes of ingestion, indicating an acute response making it beneficial for supplementation pre-workout.
Alpha-GPC also stacks extremely well with caffeine. This synergy was confirmed in a study involving nineteen physically-active college students (17 men and 2 women) that were randomly assigned to a group that either consumed a supplement including caffeine and Alpha-GPC or placebo. Results indicated that acute ingestion of the combination can maintain reaction time while a decline in reaction time was observed in the placebo group. In the same study, increases in subjective feelings of focus and alertness to both visual and auditory stimuli were also reported following exhaustive exercise.
We are proud to introduce you to this exciting new stimulant that is going to revolutionize the pre-workout category. J. Regia is a source of various psychoactive alkaloids and Olympus Labs uses a custom extract of it in CONQU3R Unleashed.
- Regia? It sounds regal. That is because J. Regia is the new KING of stimulants and it is the crowning jewel of CONQU3R Unleashed. Get excited, get really excited because J. Regia will totally change the way you think about pre-workout supplementation. The alpha testers reported incredible energy and laser focus, with NO crash. In fact, the focus was so intense that we had to remove a choline source included in the previous version, CONQU3R DGE.
Higenamine (Nelumbo Nucifera) is also included in CONQU3R Unleashed because when combined with caffeine and J. Regia it will provide a synergistic effect and give users the best energy and focus that they’ve ever had in the gym, PERIOD.
|Maximum Absorption Matrix:BioPerine® has been shown to increase bioavailability and uptake of several ingredients within CONQU3R Unleashed’s multifaceted powerhouse of a product! We selected the amount of BioPerine®, 10 mg, in the stimulant version to protect higenamine within the blend. Higenamine is susceptible to rapid breakdown via glucuronidation, but will be fully utilized with BioPerine® acting as a glucuronidation inhibitor.When the Olympus Labs name is on the supplement label you can expect an innovative product, value for your money and most importantly, results.
