Ultimate Nutrition were one of the biggest supplement companies in the industry. They at one point sponsored the biggest bodybuilding stars such as Dexter Jackson and Phil Heath and as well the Olympia Weekend.
The company bounced back from bankruptcy in 2014, but the following years seemed too difficult even though they sponsored the biggest shows.
