How do we put this…
You’re an idiot and need to get smarter.
At least that’s what P6 Black thinks, mixing nootropics with T-boosters in its hybridized male-enhancing formula. Super T, on the other hand, knows you’re an idiot and assumes you’ll buy its formula simply for its cool, slick design.
And like the politicians we’ve come to know & love throughout 2016 thus far, both of these T-boosters are vying for your money by preying on your being an idiot.
Let’s see which one is better at… calling us stupid…?

Round 1: Formulas
These Supp Facts are wassup, but let’s see how they compare:
Performix Super T comes back from the future with red balls.
The future is here.
And the future is expensive.
What the hell: Right now is expensive, but apparently it gets worse. However, what we’re here to discuss are Performix Super T’s TERRA Bead Technological “beads floating in capsules” design—and, more importantly, whether or not it works for T.
The idea of the high-tech capsules is enhanced absorption—ensuring that these vitamins, minerals, & herbal extracts survive the GI tract to work in the body. In theory, the idea is cool. In science, the idea is… well, unbacked. We really don’t know if it works (but it’s COOL!).
The actual formula, on the other hand, is backed by bona fide, research-backed T-boosters—supplying 2 of our Top Best5 T-Boosters, Zinc + Vitamin D3, and many T-boosting herbs (most of which are more sex-enhancers than T-boosters).
The end result are COOL!-looking “ball-in-capsule” capsules full of a couple raw dawg vitamin/mineral T-boosters and plenty of libido-enhancing extracts (that probably will help T status).
P6 Black makes you BIG and SMART (not really).
Cellucor is a HUGE name in bodybuilding supplements & sports nutrition.
Which is probably why they’re able to get away with a little experimentation.
And experimentation is a good thing… when it works.
P6 Black works, but the ingredients it experiments with do not. We’ll divide the formula into these two categories:
- What works: The D-Aspartic Acid definitely works, some research showing T-boosts up to 42% in only 12 days. The classic, sports nutritional ZMA (Zinc-Magnesium-B6) trio works. The Mucuna pruriens works.
- What does NOT work: The nootropics Alpha-GPC & D-Serine. They’re solid experimental ingredients in other settings, but their brain/cognitive advantages don’t really have a place or purpose in a T-booster. Also, the Andrographis paniculata is puzzling (it’s used to treat the common cold).
So P6 Black fails at the whole “being smart” nootropic experiment, but it succeeds in the central point: Boosting T. And it’s worth noting that where Super T has 2 of our Best5 T-Boosters (Zinc + D3), P6 Black has 4 (Zinc + D3 + DAA + Mucuna pruriens), which is just *Italian chef kissing fingers thing* buonissimo!
In a T-booster fight, you have to go with the formula with the most T-boosts. It’s just like… math or something.
Round 1… P6 Black Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Both sides are DQ’d in this round for simultaneously throwing illegal shots in the form of proprietary blend dosaging. You can have the best ingredients in the world, yet still sell the worst formula by supplying little to no dosages.
Which is why it’s almost a bigger offense to hide those dosages.
For the record: The overall prop blend dosages don’t actually look too bad—P6 Black provides a sizeable amount with its 2.1 g Nootropic Testosterone Matrix and all of the vitamins & minerals look good.
Honestly, our only beef is with Super T, which only sets aside 759 mg for 6 ingredients. And while they make up for this (SEE: the next round), it still just doesn’t look good for them—nor for the Super T consumer.
Round 2… P6 Black Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
As far as herbal extracts go, Performix Super T might have the best we’ve seen yet.
In terms of potency, nothing in Performix Super T’s Male Performix Matrix can be improved—which massively upgrades our confidence in its T-boosting capabilities. Plus, the Zinc is in rare branded form (although the B6 could be improved to P-5-P [SEE: P6 Black’s B6 form]).
P6 Black also has a few impressive ingredients—the chelated DAA, the Mucuna pruriens extract, the P-5-P, the sportsy ZMA… However, it lacks the refinement demonstrated by Performix Super T’s ingredient qualities.
Actually, you know what: Everything lacks the refinement demonstrated by Performix Super T’s ingredient qualities.
This round is an easy call.
Round 3… Performix Super T Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Performix Super T||VS.||P6 Black|
|1 Bottle (26-day supply)||$115.00||1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$69.90|
|Price Per Capsule||$1.47||Price Per Capsule||$0.77|
|Price Per Serving||$4.42||Price Per Serving||$2.33|
Round 4… P6 Black Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
The T-booster from the future vs. the smart-but-not-really booster from… now.
If Performix Super T didn’t take into account the price inflation from the future, as well, then we’d probably give it a higher recommendation—which isn’t to say that we don’t recommend it (we do). But one hundred and fifteen BIG ones?
Ay Dios mio.
Frankly, if you get down to it, P6 Black simply has more T-boosts than Performix Super T—plus, it’s ~45 bucks cheaper.
There’s something to be said about premium-grade herbal extracts, though. Something really, really good. And we’re excited to see these extracts utilized under Performix Super T’s futuristic “red-ball” technology.
But, for now, we’re going with P6 Black, looking forward to Super T when we save up the big bucks.
