Alpha P5 Is The Perfect Addition to Any Prohormone Cycle
Hello family. It’s your friendly neighborhood Darkman, AKA Sexual Chocolate. I’ve been blessed by Alpha Gainz to review another one of their innovative prohormones. This time it’s Alpha P5, a topically applied pregnenolone. I have seen nothing but great results from prior Alpha Gainz products, so I was curious to see how Alpha P5 worked.
Each 1 ml serving of Alpha P5 contains 25 mg of pregnenolone, but what is pregnenolone? Pregnenolone is a naturally occurring hormone found in the body. In fact, pregnenolone is the original precursor from which almost all of the other steroid hormones are made. It functions as a biologically active neurosteroid which has many health benefits and is widely acknowledged for its safety and absence of any significant side effects. Pregnenolone is an essential hormone in males & females of all ages and as is the case with other hormones, our natural production declines with age. Supplementing with pregnenolone assists in reducing fatigue, increasing endurance, and improving mood quality. It also provides the brain with the hormonal and neurotransmitter support it needs to reduce memory loss, thus helping to improve concentration, memory, and focus. In medical studies, pregnenolone has been demonstrated to enhance performance on the job and dramatically increase mental alertness while helping to relieve both stress and fatigue simultaneously. To top it off, pregnenolone has shown its capable of aiding in the recovery of those with arthritis, depression, and traumatic injuries. Pretty impressive, right?
The label recommends applying 25 mg of Alpha P5 to the chest, abdomen, shoulders/clavicles and inner arms, rotating application sites with each use. The 1 ml dropper that was provided was pretty worthless when it came to trying to extract an exact amount. Fortunately, I had a 1 ml oral syringe which I used. There was no excessive dripping, and the product absorbed into my skin and dried fairly quickly. It didn’t stain my clothing and left behind a woodsy, earthy, masculine scent, much like Alpha Andro TD.
I stacked Alpha P5 with Alpha Andro TD with hopes that it would be an effective 1, 2 punch. Mission Accomplished. Alpha P5 gave me increased energy, endurance, and focus, not just pre-workout, but all day long. With Alpha P5, I was constantly in a good mood, and I was able to get some good quality sleep. Alpha P5 is one of those all-around supplements. It’s a great focus agent, nootropic, energy booster, and sleep enhancer. As an added plus, it also helped relieve some nagging joint pain and also tightened my muscles, especially my biceps and triceps.
Alpha P5 is available on Alpha Gainz website for $19.99, but on other websites, it can be purchased for $14.99. Either price is a bargain. Heck, for what it does, Alpha P5 is a freaking steal!
I’m adding Alpha Gainz to my short list of favorite companies. Not only are their products effective, but they are ridiculously affordable. I plan on doing another run with Alpha P5, but I’m going to purchase 2 bottles. I want to see what an 8-week cycle will do.

Alpha P5, your stackable brother from another mother to complement any Test Booster or PH you are running.
What’s up SR family! Before I begin with my review of Alpha P5, I would like to thank Alpha Gainz and the Troopers for the opportunity. Since I am fast approaching the 50-year milestone, I am constantly looking for good products to keep my test levels where they are, before I start having to use my Butt as a pincushion. Therefore, when Alpha P5 came up for the Troopers, I thought it would have been a good product to bridge with my current Test Booster run.
What do you get inside that bottle of Alpha P5? There is 25 mg of Pregnenolone, hmmm, Pregnenolone? Your body produces Pregnenolone, of course, as we age; it starts to drop, just like our test levels. There are many applications of Pregnenolone, which is just not for body building purposes: Helps with Fatigue Increase Endurance Recovery Joints Feeling of Wellbeing
Taste – Well, if you are like one of those people in the Direct TV Commercial that like to taste nasty stuff, you right ahead; this is a transdermal delivery system. Mix – Nothing to mix, just rub on a body part and go! Dosing – Well, the dropper that comes with Alpha P5, to put in a nice way Sucks! I had to buy my own 1 ml dropper at CVS in order to get a full dose. I would use 1 ml every morning, after taking a shower.
Alpha P5 is the real deal, when it comes to some of the benefits listed above; however, it was like adding jet-fuel to a 1990 Yugo, when I stacked this with an over the counter test booster. The test Booster I was using contains some nitrates, which helps with pumps, I noticed about 3 days into using Alpha P5, the pumps were more intense and lasted longer. In addition, I felt happy most of the time, despite having a crazy job, which makes you drink. I was more focused and when I took one of the Nootropic products, which the Troopers sent, wow, I can tell the boosting effect. When it came to other physiological effects I felt, one that came to mine was the ability to fall asleep faster. I am one of those who need to write down my next day to do list before going to bed, if not, I am up until 12:30 am lying in bed wide awake.
Man, this is what I love to see, a product that works and you can get cheap $15 to $20 bucks! Now, with that said, I have been looking to buy at least 2 bottles, I am having a hard time finding it; even on Alpha Gainz site it states “Sold Out”.
Alpha P5 from Alpha Gainz is a product that everyone who is into fitness, wanting to better himself or herself, or use an inexpensive stacking product, should buy and keep in your supplement cabinet. The only thing I ask is the Dropper be upgraded, that was the only Con I could find with this product. I would like to thank Alpha Gainz again for the opportunity.

Alpha Getting Me Gainz
This is the first product from Alpha Gainz that I have used and after a month’s use, I am eager to see what long-term results will look like. There are already several good reviews on this and I think they pretty much hit the nail on the head.
From WebMD, “Pregnenolone is a chemical that is found in our bodies. It can also be made in a laboratory. People use it for medicine. Pregnenolone is used for fatigue and increasing energy; Alzheimer’s disease and enhancing memory; trauma and injuries; as well as stress and improving immunity. It is also is used for skin disorders including psoriasis and scleroderma. Women use pregnenolone for lumpy breasts (fibrocystic breast disease), a disorder of the lining of the uterus (endometriosis), symptoms of menopause, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some people use pregnenolone for slowing or reversing aging, arthritis, and depression. It is also used for strengthening the heart, allergic reactions, “detoxification,” lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), prostate problems, and seizures. Because the body uses pregnenolone to make many hormones, pregnenolone was studied for stress, fatigue, and arthritis in the 1940s before lab-made hormones became available.”
isopropanol-“a liquid alcohol, used as a solvent.” propylene glycol- “common in cosmetics, is a synthetic (i.e., man-made) organic alcohol that attracts/absorbs water.” benzyl alcohol- “used in a wide variety of cosmetics and personal care products.” oliec acid- “Oleic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid that is the most widely distributed and abundant fatty acid in nature. It is used commercially in the preparation of oleates and lotions, and as a pharmaceutical solvent.” 3-Hydroxypregn-5-en-20-one- “Pregnenolone (P5), or pregn-5-en-3-ol-20-one, is an endogenous steroid and precursor/metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of most of the steroid hormones, including the progestogens, androgens, estrogens, glucocorticoids, and mineralocorticoids. In addition, pregnenolone is biologically active in its own right, acting as a neurosteroid.” 17-one- Could not locate this specific chemical but it appears to be related to androgenic substances. stearyl methacrylate- “is used in oil additives as flow/viscosity index improver for highly paraffinic oils and as pour point depressant.” nerolidol- “also known as peruviol, is a naturally occurring sesquiterpene found in the essential oils of many types of plants and flowers. There are two isomers of nerolidol, cis and trans, which differ in the geometry about the central double bond. Nerolidol is present in neroli, ginger, jasmine, lavender, tea tree, Cannabis sativa, and lemon grass, and is a dominant scent compound in Brassavola nodosa. The aroma of nerolidol is woody and reminiscent of fresh bark. It is used as a flavoring agent and in perfumery. It is also used in non-cosmetic products such as detergents and cleansers. It is also currently under testing as a skin penetration enhancer for the transdermal delivery of therapeutic drugs.” civetone-a macrocyclic ketone and the main odorous constituent of civet oil. It is a pheromone sourced from the African civet. It has a strong musky odor that becomes pleasant at extreme dilutions
As a transdermal product, this is not something you should taste. The smell was a very pleasant pine that noticeably lingered for about half an hour. People are right, that the dropper will not grab anywhere near 1 ml. Honestly, with a recommended max dosage of 3 ml, it makes sense that it was designed to grab .5 ml at a time. It consistently grabbed .5 ml for me until I got close to the bottom of the bottle. Once there, all you had to do was lean the bottle at a 45 degree angle for the same effective dose. When that wouldn’t work, there was just enough to pour straight from the bottle. I stuck with 1.5 ml in the morning and another 1.5 ml in the evening.
If this is what a transdermal product is supposed to do then it has my full support. I enjoyed the increase in focus both in and outside of the gym. In addition to the increase in focus I was able to make some strength gains and gains in mass. I also noticed considerably less DOMS, which has become commonplace with my over training. While individual opinion varies, I always stack my prohormone with cycle support, an estrogen blocker, and a natural test booster. Following a month cycle, I always use a PCT. While this PH is nowhere near as anabolic as the nasty illegal stuff, I am a firm believer in treating any form of synthetic hormones/ hormone precursors with the same level of caution. For those wondering about running the PH by itself, I would, at the bare minimum, strongly encourage a good PCT.
I purchased 2 bottles at $20 each. Depending on the dosage you apply, the amount of time it takes to go through a bottle will vary, person to person. I am not accustomed to prohormones being cheap so $40 for a month supply is a big win for me.
During the entire month, I did not experience any side effects.
The product is not expensive, worked for me, was easy to dose and apply, and had no noticeable side effects. Until, something bigger and better comes along, I will be continuing to use this. This is definitely something worth trying.
