When Altius came out last year, we had our doubts.
Just about every PWO claims to be “clinically formulated,” but way too many are “clinically B.S.”
But Altius broke the stereotype and actually delivered what the market wants: Great ingredients at doses that actually worked.
In fact, Altius has all the makings of the PWO to beat. Don’t believe us? Read on to find out why we’re celebrating like we just broke our deadlift PR.
Altius is made by the good fellows at Jacked Factory. Altius provides a clean energy surge, laser sharp focus, and a noticeable increase in muscle power and gains. They have gathered some of the best PWOs together in one big scoop, and keep it efficient by not trying to cram in way too many. Formula notes:
- Effective doses: Jacked Factory made sure their PWO will have the right doses in just one good serving.
- Clean ingredients: No fluff, no dyes, no synthetic whatevers, and no artificial sweeteners. Key active ingredients only.
- BioPerine®: Its piperine helps to boost bioavailability so more active PWO nutrients reach the bloodstream to be delivered to body & brain. Quality, Bro.

Altius explodes into the PWO scene with a no-B.S., just RESULTS formula.
When most supplement companies say their doses are “clinically effective” they often mean when you take two to three servings which is utter bullshit.
But that’s not the case with Altius. They have all the right ingredients at their actual effective doses with just one big ass 20.33 g scoop.
Now that’s the kind of PWO we’re talking about! Check out the whoop-ass in each Altius scoop:
It starts out with Vitamin B12. They do B12 right with the most potent & active form, methylcobalamin. Other basics here include sodium and potassium, to help with hydration during intense training sessions.
Core Performance: Power, Strength, & Endurance
Citrulline Malate. One of the best PWOs you can take, citrulline is great for muscle circulation, energy, and amino acid utilization. It might give you a little pop of extra HGH production, too.
Beta Alanine: Another one of our top-rated PWOs. Great performance enhancer, especially for fast-twitch muscle fibers, as well as endurance and recovery.
Creatine Monohydrate. Best form of creatine and we love it in our PWOs. Another top pick. You know the score: A legendary muscle performance enhancer that enables more reps.
Betaine Anhydrous. Science-backed PWO that makes an excellent addition for both power and gains. Its N.O.-spiking properties will help with major pumps, too.
Caffeine. This PWO serves a more than adequate dose of caffeine and is guaranteed to get you up and lifting in no time. It’s also a nice fat burner on the side.
Alpha GPC. A really good focus enhancer and it also increases post-workout growth hormones. As Alpha GPC, it’s not the best nutrient form in the choline class; we generally steer bros towards Cognizin Citicoline, instead. That’s the good shit.
BioPerine. Black pepper at 95% piperine; an effective nutrient absorption catalyst. God DAMN we love BioPerine. It’s consistently in the really great supplements, including our #1-ranked T-Booster.
One look at Altius and you know they have it all figured out. They got all the right ingredients with all the doses every bro could want. They don’t make an effort to hide the doses, and we salute them for it. But why would you hide it when you got such great potency, anyway? Exactly.
Altius is driven by the Core Performance Blend, which is a powerhouse of Great PWOs in strong dosages. At 200 mg, the caffeine is a key contributor too. It will boost energy and alertness, but the stimulant-styled PWO doesn’t work for everybody.
Alpha GPC is a popular ingredient when you want intense focus. It’s a great addition but our sources say Cognizin would’ve been the better of the two. This doesn’t change the fact that this “blend” is still great, though.
Aaaaaand the Absorption Activator. This is the one ingredient that unites them all. What would be the use of all those powerful ingredients if your body won’t absorb them all? BioPerine takes care of that, and will help with a 5 mg dosage — though 10 mg is more the standard for peak bioavailability-boosting benefits.
Bro you have got to try this at least once. The formulation is smart and offers what we want when we take our PWOs. We’ll get pumped, we’ll get energized, and we’ll definitely have laser focus with every rep.
Who Takes It?
Altius is tailored for bros who have had it with PWOs that can’t back up their “clinical evidence” claims. The no-BS, non-proprietary blend formula we find in Altius attracts the bro who has finally figured out how to buy a good supplement.
Any Side Effects?
The only issue would be when you’re not used to caffeine, let alone high amounts of it. 200 mg caffeine is high, but it’s not outrageous. The PWOs that peak over 300 mg caffeine? Those are outrageous. Altius knows what they are doing, and that makes us confident that this is a well-tolerated formula.
