P6 Extreme Review
P6 Extreme is your basic testosterone booster, but is said to go beyond the call of duty and block estrogen as well.
You increase testosterone while blocking estrogen–because these two hormones directly oppose each other, and men obviously need more testosterone–and as a result, you get amazing workout- and muscle-building results, while also increasing sex drive.
If it manages to follow through and produce these results, P6 Extreme could be a powerful testosterone supplement. Of course, we know that it can only produce these results if it uses powerful ingredients. Syntheroid has clinically-proven ingredients that can dramatically boost testosterone levels, for example.
Let’s take a look at what P6 Extreme has and if it will also be effective.
What’s In P6 Extreme?
P6 Extreme contains a 947 mg proprietary blend of nine ingredients, and 250 mg of tribulus terrestris. We’ll go over each of these 10 ingredients and let you know what they are and what they do.
• Black Cohosh Root Extract is derived from a perennial plant in the buttercup family and was used by Native Americans to treat female health conditions, like menstrual cramps, and arthritis. More generally, it has been connected to the treatment of muscle pain, sore throat, and indigestion. It is used today primarily to treat hot flashes and mood swings, so its presence in a testosterone booster is a bit unexplained.
• Beta-Sitosterol is a substance found in many plants and is used to treat heart disease and high cholesterol. Rather than promoting testosterone levels, it maintains existing levels by blocking an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, which turns testosterone into DHT.
• Ovine Placenta Powder is derived from the placenta of sheep, and are said to be rich in amino acids, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B, all of which are essential for testosterone production and muscle growth. Supporters claim that consuming sheep placenta results in anti-aging effects, more body energy, better skin, physical vitality, overall good health.
• Agaricus Bisporus, known more commonly as the white mushroom, actually reduces testosterone levels as well as estrogen levels, which makes us wonder why this ingredient is included in a supposed testosterone booster.
• Stinging Nettle Root Extract is used primarily as “irrigation therapy” for urinary tract infections that can lead to an enlarged prostate. In a testosterone booster, however, it can also promote free testosterone levels by inhibiting the sex hormone binding globulin, which prevents testosterone from reaching muscle cells. When this happens, testosterone can convert to estrogen.
• Wild Yam Root Extract is believed to convert Androstene to testosterone by aiding the liver. However, the effects of wild yam are undocumented, and may not be reliable. Furthermore, it contains a chemical known as disogenin, which can convert to estrogen.
• Myricetin is a flavonoid, which contains several antioxidants that can fight free radicals and keep your body healthy. It does not do anything to directly enhance testosterone levels, however.
• Sclareolide is a lactone derived from several plant sources that is used in cigar tobacco. It is said to have a powerful fragrance as work as a fat burner to increase thermogenic effects in the body. This will help to break fat down and improve muscle definition.
• Tribulus Alatus Extract, which is included in 250mg in the P6 Extreme formula, seems to be the main T-booster. It is closely related to tribulus terrestris, which you might have heard of as it is well known to support healthier testosterone production. Ostensibly, tribulus alatus will produce the same results, but we couldn’t find any studies to verify this.
This is, to put it frankly, one of the oddest testosterone-boosting formulas we’ve seen. More than one ingredient seems better adapted to tending to menstrual cramps than to boosting testosterone, and several have nothing to at all to do with promoting T-levels. Some, like mushroom, actually decrease testosterone altogether.
Is Cellucor Reliable?
Cellucor, the company that produced and distributes P6 Extreme, is based in Bryan, Texas and has been a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business since 2010. It currently has a rating of A+ and has no complaints currently on file.
It seems like a well-run, reliable company, which makes us question why it would have put out a T-booster with such irrelevant and frankly bizarre ingredients.
How Do I Order P6 Extreme?
If you do decide to go with this product, P6 Extreme can be purchased from the Cellucor website in bulk for $119.99 for a bottle of 120 capsules. This price holds true on other websites as well, such as GNC.com.
This is a fairly expensive price for a T-booster, and it doesn’t come with a money-back guarantee, which makes us nervous. Shipping information varies with each website, so be sure to check that out before you order.
Cellucor is an efficient and reliable company, but P6 Extreme seems to be the black sheep of the family. It doesn’t include the right ingredients, it masks the ones it does have in a proprietary blend, and it is extremely expensive.
Instead, we would recommend you try a product like Syntheroid.
Every ingredient it uses is powerful or clinically proven. The reviews that customers leave for this product are very complimentary and I like that the manufacturer offers a 90-day money back guarantee for Syntheroid. If you want to really boost your testosterone levels, I recommend that you try Syntheroid instead of P6 Extreme.
