Chasing the Intense Energy & Extreme Pump – The Cellucor C4 50X Run Down

Since the launch of Cellucor G4 (Fourth Generation of Products), we can see they’ve taken the C4 Extreme and broke it down into separate series of C4’s. Not rolling out the C4 Extreme in the G4 series, but in addition to that, Cellucor has pumped out C4 Mass, C4 Ripped, and the latest arrival to SC, C4 50X.

So what makes the new 50X different from the others? Well the C4 Mass is as simple as it is named. They’ve added carbohydrates and additional creatine to the Mass blend; again simple. Reviews on this product are coming in slowly as the new G4 series has been picking up. The Mass has performing well with majority of our customers. We can’t say the same for the C4 Ripped as of yet with little to no feedback. – Stay tuned for those though!

The C4 Ripped has mass similarities to the Super HD Powder, yet still holding the C4 label. Could be that the Super HD Powder is being phased out? We will leave you to decide that.

On to the answer for the question above, what makes the C4 50x different from the rest? After quickly reviewing the nutritional panel and not going to much in depth, it appears quite simple. They’ve integrated TeaCor™, XCELICOR™ and the traditional Caffeine Anhydrous (I know same-old yada yada.) The most intriguing thing about this blend are the two “fancy” caffeine’s. Not by name but how the absorption rate by the body, each source provides. As old school caffeine anhydrous hits the system quickly and yet not as efficiently, meaning the body doesn’t process and absorb anhydrous to the fullest. On to the TeaCor™ and the XCELICOR caffeine’s.

Both TeaCor™ and XCELICOR™ are a more efficient, moderate to fast absorbing caffeine’s with lasting effects. What do I mean by “lasting effects”? It’s been tested that XCELICOR has lasting effects up to 6 hours after consumption. Say WHAT! Yes, the effect of XCELICOR compared to regular caffeine is that it’s been shown to improve mental clarity, greater concentration, improved energy & alertness, and most important, NO adverse effects.

The release of TheaTrim™ by Purus Labs, utilized the TeaCor™ compound well before C4 50X came out. The TeaCor™ seems to affect the brain, closer to the effects of caffeine in which stimulates the central nervous system and decreases the central nervous system at lower doses. The biggest difference between TeaCor™ and Caffeine is that TeaCor™ has been shown NOT to effect blood pressure, and also has been suggested that it has much less effects on the liver as it does not cause liver damage usually causes by stress when utilizing caffeine.

Okay, enough of the energy and focus talk. On to the pump compounds in the C4 50X. Again, briefly running through the panel we can see it contains the essentials, beta alanine, arginine AKG, and the most favorable Creatine Nitrate (N3-T™).

With the basics covered and the additional energy sources, the new Cellucor G4 C4 50X would definitely be an interesting product to try, and is now available!

On the rise, Purus Labs Theatrim is the solution…or is it?



The weight loss/thermogenic category has been stagnant and lacking ingenuity for quite some time. With an overwhelming percentage of our population being overweight, and an even larger percentage whom would still like to shed a few pounds, the case should be quite the contrary. Compound this with the fact that it boasts one of the industry’s largest market categories by consumer demand, and you can see the clear need for attention and innovation.

TheaTrim is our answer.

We are proud and excited to be the world’s first company to introduce Teacrine, a nature-identical compound proven to enhance psychometric indices of energy and endurance. We’ve combined it with a research-drenched supporting cast of other materials designed to increase energy, overall sense of well being, thermogenesis, and stored fat utilization through strategic neurochemical pathway manipulation. Best of all, Teacrine doesn’t seem to cause habituation, therefore consumers are less likely to develop a tolerance with TheaTrim as with other energy and weight loss products.



TeaCrine (theacrine) is a nature identical compound found in certain botanical sources that has been shown to positively act on both dopaminergic and adenosinergic nuerochmical pathways (i.e. mood and stimulation). By strategically and favorably manipulating these complex pathways, enhanced energy, improved concentration, and reductions in fatigue are experienced. Although structurally similar to caffeine, preliminary evidence suggests lesser signs of tolerance, therefore your body won’t become desensitized over time requiring increased dosages. Essentially, Teacrine provides all the weight loss benefits of caffeine, plus some, but with less central nervous system stimulation and less build up of tolerance.

Dicaffeine malate & Caffeine anhydrous are also included for their famed effects on alertness, energy, and appetite suppression. Dicaffeine malate crosses the blood-brain barrier more rapidly than the benchmark, caffeine anhydrous, so we’ve included both to achieve somewhat of a tiered stimulatory effect.

Methylcobalamin & SAMe (S-Adenosyl methionine)

Included for methyl group metabolism and tri-monoamine modulation. In short, they support an overall better sense of well being through neurochemical involvement with norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin.

Citrus Bioflavanoid complex (std. for hesperidin)

Specifically included for CYP 450 inhibition, an endogenous protein designed to oxidize (break down) certain substances such as caffeine. By blunting this, we can increase the active life of these molecules. This gives our caffeine blend more bang for the buck.

White Willow Bark extract (std. for salicin)

Salicin acts like nature’s aspirin, thinning the blood allowing for more rapid circulation and delivery of paired compounds. Aspirin and caffeine have long been used in conjunction due to their synergistic nature, both for pain and weight management. We have included it as somewhat of a formula accelerant, as it makes sure no time is wasted delivering these caffeine alkaloids to their receptors where they can begin doing work.

Rauwolfia Vomitoria (root bark extract)

Added precisely for alpha adrenergic receptor antagonism. Alpha receptors inhibit fat loss. Beta receptors stimulate fat loss. Most stubborn, high density fat areas, such as the lower back on males and the hips/thighs of women, contain a higher ratio of alpha to beta receptors. If we can antagonize (blunt) the alpha receptors while simultaneously stimulating the beta receptors, we create an ideal scenario for fat mobilization and weight loss.

USAGE: To assess your tolerance, begin with 1 serving taken with food. If tolerance permits, you may consume up to 4 servings throughout the day. Do not exceed 2 servings at any one time, and do not consume within 4-6 hours of bedtime.

SUMMARY: Through its flagship ingredient, Teacrine, Purus Labs’ TheaTrim is an ingenuitive and novel approach to weight loss and energy stimulation. Through identifying, focusing on, and addressing specific neurochemical and metabolic pathways, TheaTrim is a synergistic force specifically aimed at the issues surrounding fat loss and energy production. Uniquely, due to its specific formulation, consumers are less likely to develop a tolerance as well. This means consistent delivery of results without the need for increasing the dosage.
