MTS Nutrition’s new testosterone booster might be the first supplement to have its own theme music.

The brainchild of owner Marc Lobliner, Barracuda was designed to help maximize natural testosterone production.

With refreshing candor, Lobliner has vehemently insisted that Barracuda isn’t a steroid, and isn’t going to increase your testosterone levels beyond what the body is naturally capable of producing.

Are The Ingredients Effective?

MTS Barracuda
The first ingredient you’re going to find in Barracuda is d-aspartic acid, which is one of the best researched compounds for naturally boosting testosterone levels.

One study showed subjects supplementing with 3 g of d-aspartic acid daily for 12 days experienced a 40% increase in their testosterone levels. [1]

Barracuda is dosed at 3 g of d-aspartic acid per serving, so you will be getting an effective dose in here.

The other main testosterone boosting ingredients in here are Testosurge (patented form of the compound fenugreek) and eurycoma longifolia.

Both of these ingredients stimulate extra luteinzing hormone production in the pituitary gland. This extra amount of luteinzing hormone signals the body to increase testosterone production.

Hormone Support

You’re also going to find l-carnitine l-tartrate and maca extract in Barracuda. L-carnitine l-tartrate enhances androgen receptor activity for better hormonal response and improved exercise recovery. [2]

The maca extract supports optimal hormone levels, boosts libido, and helps reduce lactic acid buildup in muscles. [3]

To further support libido and hormonal balance Barracuda features the compound safed musli. What’s more, there’s also black pepper extract in here to improve the absorption of all the other compounds.

Will You Need An Estrogen Blocker?

Natural testosterone boosters like Barracuda are designed to maximize testosterone output. This means that you’re body isn’t producing more than it’s capable of. Rather, it’s being stimulated to produce as much as it can.

This means that you don’t have to worry about any estrogen blockers, since you won’t be subject to any side effects from increased estrogen levels.

Is Barracuda Effective?

On paper, Barracuda has all the ingredients necessary to be a pretty effective testosterone booster. However, I had to try this for myself to find out whether it was the real deal.

I can’t say that I noticed much of a difference in my workouts during the first couple of days, but around the 5 or 6 day mark I noticed an increase in my libido. Any time my sex drive goes up, I’m stronger and I push myself harder at the gym.

Although it wasn’t a huge increase, Barracuda noticeably increase my strength and sex drive.

Final Verdict On Barracuda

Overall I would say that Barracuda lived up to my expectations, and makes good on the promises made by Lobliner. Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, and this is going to give you a boost in both the bedroom and the gym.
