What Is Male Peak Ultra?
Male Peak Ultra is a pre-workout nutritional supplement formulated with botanical extracts and other natural compounds to raise physical fitness and performance levels. It can be used as both a workout enhancer and as a vitamin and mineral source with which to fill in nutritional gaps in users’ diets. It is marketed as a performance-boosting supplement for serious athletes who want to gain an edge on the competition with a safer and fully legal dietary aid. It is also marketed to bodybuilder, weightlifters and powerlifters who are seeking a boost in muscle strength, endurance and stamina with which to pack on more lean muscle mass faster. It is not, however, designed solely for fitness professionals; it is equally intended for any male who wants to build and shape his goal body faster.
Male Peak Ultra is developed, manufactured, marketed and distributed by a health and fitness supplement manufacturer based in the United States. This company’s 14-day trial program has helped to make this product popular among American fitness enthusiasts. It is specifically designed for healthy adults and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18; it is available online only at this time. Potential benefits to regular daily use may include heightened energy levels, accelerated fat-burning, improved mood levels, enhanced cognitive functioning and increased self-confidence. It may also provide an effective and all-natural physical vitality enhancement solution for older men experiencing age-related effects such as a loss of strength, decreased energy, mental fog and weight gain.
The manufacturer of this muscle-boosting nutritional supplement goes by the name of Pipe Online, LLC. This company is headquartered within the United States; specifically, within Huntington Beach in California. According to online business records, Pipe Online, LLC is registered as a domestic limited-liability company in the state of Nevada and has been in business for approximately a year. The founder and CEO of this health and fitness supplement solutions manufacturer is listed as Michael Ehrman, according to the site. Interested consumers can follow the company’s listing for changes in business roles, activity status, location updates, new connections and any such related information.

How Male Peak Ultra Works?
The plant extracts, nutrients, minerals, herbs and other botanicals included in this nutritional formulation are engineered to work with the body’s natural processes to enhance nutrient absorption and physical capability. Each capsule contains a purportedly potent blend of minerals, botanicals and natural compounds which function to enhance the body’s production of a molecule called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is also crucial to a process called vasodilation, a bodily function characterized by enlarged diameter of the smooth walls of arteries and blood vessels, which allow greater blood, oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscle tissue. Enhanced blood delivery and widened blood vessel walls help to amp up muscular energy, healing and regeneration for stronger muscle contractions, more lean muscle-building capability and lengthened endurance. Nitric oxide also promotes faster healing, which may then translate to more frequent and more energized workout sessions, allowing users to get more done at a faster rate.
This organic formula complex is also designed to enhance a natural body function called protein synthesis, which is essentially the process of building and healing new muscle tissue. Since amino acids are essentially the basic building blocks of proteins, the amino acids in these capsules are specially formulated to amplify and enhance the process for maximum lean muscle gained in combination with strength-training. The capsules' nutritional profile is dosed to promote efficient signaling to muscle cells for greater endurance, energy, muscle strength and blood flow. This, this pre-workout supplement aims to enhance biochemical signaling pathways for accelerated exercise gains. In order to best amplify the protein synthesis process, this product is best taken within (approximately) an hour before the start of a cardio or strength-training session.
Ingredients of Male Peak Ultra
The product nutrition label provides detailed dosage information for each ingredient. One serving size is equivalent to two capsules, while each container contains a total of 30 servings for a one-month supply.
The following natural compounds are the active ingredients in Male Peak Ultra’s proprietary formula blend:
- L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate;
- L-Arginine Base;
- L-Arginine HCL;
The capsules also include:
- Magnesium Stearate;
- Microcrystalline Cellulose.
L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate is also known as AAKG and, simply, Arginine. L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate is a natural compound called a nonessential amino acid that is produced by the liver, while its potent nitric oxide-stimulating properties have made it a must-include in many modern bodybuilding fitness supplements. This amino acid plays an important role in the production of nitric oxide; not only is L-Arginine a precursor to this important molecule, it enhances production and to allow more proteins, carbohydrates and nutrients to working muscles to amplify strength and lean muscle-tissue building capability. L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate also promotes the regulation and delivery of various hormones that also contribute to the myogenesis (muscle-building) process. Many bodybuilders assert that this enhanced nitric oxide production helps to enable stronger and more long-lasting muscle pumps.
Serious athletes and bodybuilders are likely more than familiar with the importance and popularity of L-Arginine in muscle-building formulations. As such, another form of Arginine – L-Arginine HCL – is a form of Arginine that is manufactured synthetically with an extra hydrogen chloride molecule in order to increase nutrient absorption capacity. It regulates many important bodily functions, including protein metabolism, immune system function and wound healing. Historically, this amino acid was first isolated in 1886 by a Swiss chemist who extracted this compound from lupin seedlings. Since L-Arginine HCL cannot be produced by the body in optimal quantities, it is best to consume it by mouth via nutritional sources such as tuna, halibut, salmon, shrimp, beef, poultry and high-potency dietary supplements.
Also key to the formula blend is L-Citrulline, an amino acid originally extracted from the watermelon in 1914. When taken by mouth, it is converted into L-Arginine by the kidneys and has become a popular supplement among bodybuilders and powerlifters. Not only does L-Citrulline optimize blood flow to the tissues and extremities, it also reduces lactic acid buildup from exercise, which further contributes to decreased muscle soreness and accelerated myogenesis. In addition to boosting cardiovascular capability as well as natural nitric oxide production L-Citrulline may also help to significantly enhance immune system functioning and growth hormone production. Muscular protein synthesis activates as soon as muscle fibers tense in response to resistance; especially in combination with naturally-elevated protein synthesis rates after exercise, this supplement aims to increase this activity as well as to raise the body's basal protein synthesis rate even in non-exercise states.
Male Peak Ultra’s organic formulation may help those who use it to consistently supplement a healthy, active lifestyle, to get stronger and more toned at an accelerated rate. It is designed to both assist with weight loss and calorie-burning as well as to ramp up users’ abilities to pack on hard, lean muscle. Unlike some fitness supplements – of which users must take many pills daily in order to see results – this product was formulated in easy-to-use capsule form to make it an easy addition to almost any daily routines. It is also versatile, as it can be used as a sole fitness supplement or stacked in combination with other high-quality dietary aids and vitamins. Dedicated users may experience a decrease in body fat, a higher metabolic rate, reduced visceral fat and improved aerobic capability.
Not only can this nutritional aid be utilized as a fitness enhancer, it may also help users to fill in nutritional gaps for vitamin and mineral deficiency in users’ diets. It may boost cognitive function due to greater supply supply to working muscles and to the brain. As a bonus, new customers can take advantage of the manufacturer’s 14-day trial program, while the manufacturer also offers buyer protection via a 30-day money-back guarantee for non-trial purchases. This company also provides 24/7 customer support for anyone with inquiries about the product, manufacturer programs and/or policies or for any reason before, during or after a sale. Another potential benefit to successful use of this nutritional benefit may be skyrocketed self-confidence; naturally, those who are looking and feeling their best are bound to experience a heightened feeling of confidence and pride in their accomplishments.
The Male Peak Ultra website does not display any specific certificates on the product website nor is it known whether it is manufactured in the United States. However, its active ingredients do have an extensive history of use in current health and fitness supplements, many of which are used by professional athletes and other fitness professionals. A registered dietician and American Dietetic Association spokesperson by the name of Jim White has cited the effectiveness of the star ingredient in this nutritional profile, L-Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate, in enhancing strength and muscle-building when used as a workout supplement. White has spoken in the popular Men’s Health online publication regarding its potential as an athletic performance enhancer as well as its ability to enhance protein synthesis, a key bodily function in building new muscle. White has discussed this amino acid’s abilities to help the liver break down ammonia, which is a byproduct of exercise that often leads to unwanted physical effects such as stiffness and cramping.
The Male Peak Ultra website specifies that this nutritional supplement is not designed to treat medical conditions nor has it been specifically evaluated by the FDA. Anyone considering supplementing with these capsules are advised to consult a health professional with any potential concerns. Since some users may be allergic to the plant extracts and the formula, anyone with such concerns is advised to consult with a nutritionist or another health professional before using. Similarly, this product is not designed for use by anyone under the age of eighteen and should not be used by those taking certain classes of medications. This product is not intended to replace meals and should be used in conjunction with a healthy, lean protein-based diet, an active lifestyle and a regular exercise program.
Male Peak Ultra has been a key factor in helping me get shredded faster than I thought I would have been able. I was already in pretty good shape, but I still had kind of a potbelly and I knew I could be a lot stronger. I started taking a couple of these before my workouts and made sure to take them every day. Before long, I was working out harder, I was getting more sets and reps in, I ramped up my cardio sessions and I had almost doubled my bench press. If you like to work hard and play just as hard, I’d suggest giving these a go.

Around the time I hit the age of 40, I came to the realization that I wasn’t as lean or as strong as I used to be. I’d packed on about 20 pounds since my college days, and when I hit the gym with a group of new co-workers, I discovered I was struggling to lift half the weight I used to in my twenties. A buddy suggested I try this stuff, so bit the bullet and signed up for a free trial. It’s been three weeks now, and my pants are looser, I’ve lost belly fat and I’m firming up all over the place – this has been a big win for me.

I noticed an energy rush the first couple of times I took these, and it didn’t leave me nauseous or crashing like some fitness supplements have. It has given me an extra power boost to get more done in the gym in a shorter period of time. I’d say it helps me to get going and keep going once I’m there, and I’ve got an extra inch of muscle on my biceps to show for it. When I first picked these up, I thought the price was pretty steep, but the extra endurance and energy are worth it. These capsules are outstanding.

Male Peak Ultra helped me get through some pretty intense training sessions when I first started physical training as a firefighter. I had recently started a clean-eating program, daily runs and high-intensity strength-training, so I needed a little extra to help me stay on track to keep me from getting winded and giving up. I also really liked the fact that the ingredients in these are all completely natural. I called customer service with a few questions before I placed my order, and they made the whole order process very smooth and helpful. My experience with this pre-workout supp was excellent.
