Here’s where you’ve been screwing up your whole life:
You’re weak and you’re stupid.
And you’ve done nothing to solve either issue. Perhaps it’s a money thing for you: you only have enough money to buy either a muscle building supplement or brain boosting nootropic, but you can’t buy both – so you have to settle with being a yoked moron or a smart-ass wimp.
P6 Ultimate hopes to solve all of this by target both the mind and the muscle with its hybrid mind-muscle formula. The only problem is: P6 Ultimate is expensive AF. Much more expensive than buying a testosterone booster and a brain booster.
So, what the heck?
We’ll tell you what the heck in this P6 Ultimate review.
About P6 Ultimate
Manufactured by Cellucor, P6 Ultimate is the so-called “Most Anabolic Testosterone & Cognitive Formula” period. End of discussion. (Except it’s really not, it’s just a pretty good testosterone + nootropic + circulatory hybrid supplement.) Formula notes:
- P6 Testosterone and Performance Blend: Just as advertised, this blend is for the testosterone and ergogenic boosts – the meat of the formula.
- P6 Ultimate Cognitive and Pump Blend: This blend provides the “hybrid” angle to this testosterone booster, stacking a short list of cognitive enhancers and circulatory boosters.
- Premium Price Tag: If the combination of testosterone, performance, cognition, and circulation blows your mind, just wait until you see this supplement’s price.

P6 Ultimate takes on the ultimate task: cramming all of the supplements into ONE. (And charging an ultimate price for it.)
But how can we complain about the price when P6 Ultimate opens its formula with a testosterone booster favorite:
- Vitamin D (as Cholecalciferol) – The #4 testosterone booster on our BIG List of T-Boosters for its direct correlation with test levels. Low D = Low T, so this hefty 3333 IU dosage is looking purdy damn good here.
Granted, P6 Ultimate could have done much more than this – some ZMA would have been nice – but this is only one of the ingredients in this 5 caps serving sized supplement. The rest of the formula can be found in the proprietary blends.
P6® Testosterone and Performance Blend
Sitting on a sizable 2275 mg dosage, this proprietary blend allows for a potential average of 375 mg per ingredient – not too shabby. Although, it would’ve been better to just show us the individual ingredient dosages… For now we’ll have to settle on checking out just the individual ingredients themselves:
Ashwagandha (as KSM-66®) – Anxiolytic adaptogen supplied in potent, patented KSM-66 extract form. Popularly supplemented for strength enhancement, ashwagandha may enhance testosterone status while improving relaxation.
Fenugreek Seed Extract – Recovery enhancing seeds, great for blood sugar levels and sex …yes, we realize that’s an odd pair of benefits, but fenugreek is a multi-purpose male vitality enhancer, likely used in this supplement for its free testosterone enhancement and libido boosts.
Ovine Placenta – What’s with P6 products and this ingredient? Ovine placenta is believed to increase growth hormone levels, but we’ve yet to see the clinical research to back this.
Agaricus Bisporus Extract – Well-researched mushroom species with suggested links to estrogen reduction via inhibition of aromatase, the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to estrogen.
Stinging Nettle Extract – While the research isn’t 100% on this one, Stinging Nettle does possess male healthy benefits, particularly for the prostate.
Eurycoma Longifolia (as LJ100®) – Awesome adaptogen test booster supplied in potent LJ100 form. Supplementing Tongkat ali may help balance testosterone to cortisol (stress hormone) ratios under mild conditions of stress, improving anabolic muscle building metabolism.
3,3′-Diindolylmethane (DIM) – Similar to Agaricus bisporus, DIM seems to improve the testosterone to estrogen ratio by inhibiting the enzyme aromatase.
P6 Ultimate™ Cognitive and Pump Blend
An overall dosage of 1225 mg, split four ways for a potential average 306.3 mg per ingredient, which again ain’t bad, especially since the first two ingredients target the same circulatory biopathway:
Inositol-Stabilized Arginine Silicate (as Nitrosigine®) – Touted as the ultimate pre-workout supplement, Nitrosigine is an enhanced form of arginine, a nitric oxide (N.O.) booster that’s great for muscle pumping blood flow.
Arginine Nitrate (NO3-T®) – More enhanced arginine for more circulatory boosts.
Alpha-GPC (as AlphaSize®) – Alpha-GPC is the densest choline source that’s able to cross the blood-brain barrier, qualifying its nootropic status. May enhance acetylcholine levels as well as strength.
Sceletium Tortuosum Extract (as Zembrin®) – Surprisingly under-utilized cognitive enhancer. Research suggests this herbal extract possesses significant anti-anxiety, mood boosting benefits.
Cellucor P6 Ultimate boasts a big game and… well, actually delivers, which doesn’t happen often with these hybrid testosterone + cognition supplements. Altogether, P6 Ultimate offers three key bio-benefits to the exercising men:
- Increased Testosterone – provided by natural, herbal vitality enhancers.
- Enhanced Cognition – two nootropics: alpha-GPC and Zembrin.
- Improved Circulation – two N.O. boosters: Nitrosigine and NO3-T.
And in lieu of a cherry, P6 Ultimate tops this formula with one of the best testosterone boosters on the market: Vitamin D – a particularly solid selection during winter.
Cellucor doubles down on this formula by supplying high quality, branded ingredients, enhancing the potency of each ingredient within those dosage-obscuring proprietary blends (meh…). Even so, P6 Ultimate sacrificed many of the big dogg boosters – D-Aspartic Acid, Zinc, Mucuna Pruriens, Boron – to make room for its Cognitive and Pump Blend.
You’ll have to decide if that’s worth the insane-O price tag attached to this product.
P6 Ultimate Benefits
P6 Ultimate bills itself as “THE MOST ANABOLIC TESTOSTERONE & COGNITIVE FORMULA” with the following benefits:
- LEAN MUSCLE
Is P6 Ultimate the most anabolic testosterone & cognitive formula? Probably not, although the formula’s emphasis on adaptogenic testosterone boosts and muscle enhancing circulation certainly helps its case. Alpha GPC and Zembrin accomplish the cognitive angle, with Ashwagandha providing a solid anxiolytic effect – so long as the dosage distributions are adequate within those proprietary blends.
Who Takes It?
Mind & Muscle Men. Cellucor emphasizes P6 Ultimate’s ability to enhance “laser-like focus” while in the gym, strengthening the mind-muscle connection that’s essential to a good workout. Granted, there’s no legitimate
Any Side Effects?
None reported. The P6 Ultimate customer reviews are generally positive, if not a little vague. One reviewer noted improvements in their daily work and workout routine, so there’s something to potentially look forward to, maybe.

Final Word on P6 Ultimate
Cellucor P6 Ultimate is a solid supplement that delivers each of its advertised hybrid advantages. (Although, the nootropic angle is a little oversold.) Does that make P6 Ultimate worth the $159.99 price tag? Eh… probably not. Really, you could probably buy a testosterone booster, nootropic, and pre-workout individually and actually save money, rather than buying this supplement.
