Cellucor has revamped their entire C4 pre-workout category to increase dosages of key ingredients, add new innovative ingredients and introduce new authentic flavor collaborations. One of the biggest upgrades came to their #1 selling pre-workout C4 Original.

The upgraded C4 Original features a larger serving size increasing from 6g to 9g which includes the new PeptiPump ingredient as well as increases in other key active ingredients

As mentioned previously, the first noticeable change was the increase in serving size from 6g to 9g. That increase came in the way of two phases: larger dosages and new ingredients.

CarnoSyn Beta-Alanine is still used in C4 Original but Cellucor increased it from 1.6g to 2g. Beta-Alanine is an ingredient that needs to be taken daily for saturation and it can aid in muscular endurance. The optimal dosage is 3.2-6.4g.

Cellucor swapped Citrulline Malate for pure Citrulline. They also increased the dosage from 1g to 1.2g. On paper it may look like only an increase of .2g, however Citrulline Malate is blend of Citrulline and Malic Acid so users are actually getting more than .2g of added Citrulline. Cellucor also included 1.2g Arginine. Citrulline converts to Arginine in the body which can improve nitric oxide. Effective dosages of Citrulline start around 3g.

Cellucor introduces PeptiPump at 100mg. PeptiPump is a patent ingredient from Nuritas. PeptiPump is derived from lentils which research has shown it to be antihypertensive, which lowers blood pressure and improves muscular pump.

Another new ingredient to the C4 Original formula will be 1g Creatine Nitrate as NO3-T. This is exogenous nitrates which yields creatine and nitrates. This will improve blood flow and ultimately lead to bigger, fuller pumps. 

Cellucor updated the energy blend as well. The first major change is they made it fully transparent. They increased caffeine anhydrous from 150mg to 200mg per serving. The brand removed Velvet Bean and TeaCrine and replaced it with 5mg of Huperzine-A for focus. As we did not know how much TeaCrine was used in the old formula we know 5mg is a good starting dosage of Huperzine-A.

A big deal to the new C4 Original lineup was the new authentic collaboration between C4 (Cellucor) and Hawaiinn Punch. This new flavor will be available in both the C4 Original and the C4 Ultimate formula. You can watch our One Sip Review below for more of a breakdown of this new flavor.

Final Takeaway

I am not going to stand up here and tell you that C4 Original is the best pre-workout. It's not. I am also not going to stand up here and tell you it sucks, because it doesn't. C4 Original was never meant to be a loaded pre-workout. For the price point and the amount of servings, it really is an entry level pre-workout that if it aids in helping you get to the gym and being productive then it is a win in my eyes. If you are new to the space and need something that is readily available, this is a great opportunity to try the #1 selling pre-workout powder.
