What additives increase the strength of concrete, it's PSI ...

Reduce the water in the concrete and the strength will go up. To a point, until the workability will have dropped that you need another weapon. Water reducers and high range water reducers (aka superplasticisers) assist (often greatly) in reducing the water demand in concrete mixes. A good mix design is a prerequisite additive.

Admixtures and additives for concrete - PCC Group

With this modification, the concrete becomes frost-resistant and less absorbent, but its compressive strength decreases. The addition of 1% air to the concrete mass means a decrease in strength by about 5Mpa. The best results can be obtained by using organic acid salts as admixtures. Air-entraining admixtures are used, among others for bridge, surface and hydrotechnical concrete.
