C4 50X is a stronger version of C4, a pre-workout supplement by Cellucor.
It uses an extra 50% of all ingredients, giving a bigger boost to those who want more intensity from their pre-workout.
The formula is designed to improve workouts by increasing energy, focus, performance, and pumps.
Cellucor is most famous for the C4 range, which now has many of variations of the original formula. These variations provide an extra edge, such as more fat-burning or extra recovery.
Creatine is an organic acid that increases the production of ATP energy in skeletal muscle.
Creatine Nitrate is a less-researched form. The Nitrate component might provide extra benefits by boosting Nitric Oxide levels, which can be great for pumps and endurance (3).
Arginine is another Nitric Oxide booster, which dilates blood vessels and can further increase endurance and pumps (4).
The AKG version is better-absorbed than other forms (5).
An effective dose is 3-6g.
Beta Alanine is a beta-amino acid that reduces the accumulation of acid and free radicals in the muscles, and can increase your endurance (6).
The recommended dose is 2-5g daily.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that reduces the production of stress hormones.
This can increase focus and reduce fatigue (7).
An effective dose is 500-2,000mg.
Caffeine increases alertness, and can also increase strength and endurance in higher doses (8).
An effective dose is between 200 and 500mg.
Mucuna Puriens is another name for Velvet Bean, which is a good source of L-DOPA.
It has been shown to increase levels of dopamine and testosterone in men with fertility issues, but may be ineffective in healthy people (10).
An effective dose is 5g of dried Mucuna Pruriens.
Tetramethyluric Acid is similar to caffeine, but people do not build a tolerance to it. This means it can provide an energy boost every time, and does not need to be cycled.
Who Takes It?
Athletes who want a stronger pre-workout than the original C4 will benefit from C4 50X.

C4 50X is a more effective dose of all ingredients found in the original C4, but is really just the same formula, repackaged.
