C4 is an award-winning pre-workout formula by Cellucor.
It aims to improve energy, pumps and performance for better workouts.
Those who regularly consume caffeine will most likely want to use 2 servings to get a decent energy boost.
The small dose of theacrine gives a slight extra energy boost. Humans don’t develop a tolerance to theacrine, so this boost doesn’t disappear with long-term use.
Caffeine is dosed appropriately, but the doses of Tyrosine and Velvet Bean will still be insignificant with multiple servings.
This is the category where C4 does best, but doses of ingredients in a single serving are still suboptimal.
2 servings would provide effective doses of most of the ingredients above, and should yield noticeable effects.
The nitrate dose is enough to be effective with a single scoop, but would be optimal with 2 serves.
The arginine dose is super low, and would have very minor effects on nitric oxide production even with an extra scoop.
We’re giving C4 1 bonus point for decent doses of B vitamins, as well as a substantial dose of vitamin C, which has been shown to prevent tolerance to nitrates.
This makes sure that you continue getting enhanced pumps from creatine nitrate with long-term use.
Cellucor C4 is a simple formula which most likely needs a 2-scoop dose to see the effects – this would result in only 15 true servings per tub.
Its mood/focus ingredients are dosed too low to have an impact, even with multiple servings.
Extra vitamins and calcium are included.
