What’s in it? What does it do? How does it do it?
The answer to all of these questions: A lot.
Even though that’s not quite grammatically correct with regards to the third question …but who cares, because there’s a lot to MTS Nutrition Barracuda, which packs a lot of test & libido boosting power into its powder — that’s right, powder and not capsules — with its potent herbal extracts and massive dosages.
But perhaps we still need to answer the third question: How does it do it?
Fair enough. Let’s get to the review.
About MTS Nutrition Barracuda
Manufactured by MTS Nutrition, Barracuda is Natural Testosterone and Libido Enhancer that tosses the capsule restraints, packing its fat dosages in 8.2 g scoop servings. However, the Mango & Blue Raz flavors may require nose-plugs. Formula notes:
- D-Aspartic Acid: DAA, one of the best testosterone booster supplements, delivers Barracuda’s test boosts at a large 3 gram dosage.
- L-Carnitine L-Tartrate: Also coming in at 3 grams, LCLT may help bodybuilders build lean muscle while freeing up their enhanced T levels.
- Affordable: Premium quality ingredients at potent dosages, sold at the reasonable price of $35 …what the hell is the catch??

Mango-flavored man power in massive 8+ gram scoops!
They say mangos are natural aphrodisiacs. (And by “They” we mean that one Seinfeld episode on mangos.) Interestingly, Amazon prices the Mango flavored Barracuda lower than the Blue Raspberry flavored stuff. Have we been wrong all along?
Are raspberries the true aphrodisiacs??
Regardless, let’s check out the:
MTS Nutrition Barracuda Ingredients
The idea underlying this formula: Natural testosterone boosts & fat burns to increase gym & bedroom performance. First impression: MTS Nutrition Barracuda seems to have the right tools for the job:
D-Aspartic Acid – The one & only D-Aspartic Acid, the #1 test booster on our BIG List of T-Boosters for its research-backed boosts on T by 42% in only 12 days, supplied here in a hefty 3,000 mg dosage.
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate – Popular bodybuilder compound in the correct bodybuilder form (LCLT), believed to help transport fatty acids to mitochondria, converting fat to energy for leaner, energized muscle gains.
MacaPure® Maca Extract – Maca extracts are a rare sight as plain powder seems to work just fine — however, MTS Nutrition goes with the good stuff, the trademarked MacaPure extract of Maca, which is more performance enhancer than T-booster (in fact, it doesn’t seem to do much for T).
Safed Musli Extract – Traditional aphrodisiac adaptogen with practically no evidence of boosting testosterone or aiding with male hormones. Needs more research.
Eurycoma longifolia Extract – Or Tongkat Ali, a traditional libido booster shown to optimize the testosterone:cortisol ratio, theoretically assisting with anabolic muscle gains. The 4:1 concentration isn’t bad, but could be better.
TestoSurge™ Fenugreek Extract – Popular Fenugreek brand, delivering a potent 80% grecunin standardized extract of this sex enhancing, recovery quickening spice. Research claims fenugreek as a valid test booster, however that research was overlooked by fenugreek supplement manufactuers, so hmm… Prepare for the maple syrup smelling side effect.
Black Pepper Extract – Every supplement should have black pepper extract for its potent benefits on nutrient absorption. The standardized piperine extract increases the overall bioavailability of this formula.
Altogether, Barracuda supplies 7 premium male enhancers at high dosages for acute boosts on physical & sexual performance. The best part: it comes in Mango flavoring. (Or is that the worst part?)
We wonder why more testosterone booster products don’t go for the powder servings over the capsules. It seems like simple math: You simply can’t fit enough ingredients at adequate dosages inside those tiny pills. You just can’t do it!!
MTS Nutrition Barracuda goes big & bold with its 8.2 gram servings, doing something rare with its formula: supplying enough carnitine to deliver the amino’s researched benefits on fat loss & muscle gains. Many supplements — from nootropics to fat burners — fail at this, or sometimes worse: they supply enough carnitine, sacrificing precious capsule space otherwise reserved for the more important ingredients.
MTS Nutrition Barracuda does none of that, supplying not only 3 grams of LCLT but 3 grams of the leading star, our favorite test booster: D-Aspartic Acid. Whereas the remaining portion of the formula could fill the capsules of a completely separate product and still review well here.
Granted, the test boosting power is limited outside of DAA, with Fenugreek & Tongkat Ali potentially assisting with “free” T boosts. Additionally, Barracuda’s powder base comes with the downside of all those junk additives & fillers — Natural & Artificial Flavor, Sucralose, FD&C Yellow 5.
Either way, MTS Nutrition Barracuda’s high quality, high quantity formula ranks as a top-notch test booster for the big boys.
MTS Nutrition Barracuda Benefits
The two specific results touted by MTS Nutrition w/r/t Barracuda:
- Enhanced Natural Testosterone
- Enhanced Libido
Of course, the first benefit comes with a range of secondary benefits, of which is included libido — as well as muscle & strength gains, physical performance, etc. MTS Nutrition is correct in having powerful dosages, so we’d say these benefit claims are earned.
Who Takes It?
Big Boys. Or guys right on the cusp of being big boys. We’d advise at least having some mass built up to handle MTS Nutrition Barracuda’s dosages, although one of the upsides of powder supplements is the ability to manipulate & monitor your intake, i.e., increase & decrease dosages based on your needs.
Any Side Effects?
According to some Amazon customer reviews, a little mudbutt may be expected. However, these reports are few & far in between, leading us to suspect that (as we hinted at in the previous section) these customers are taking too much for their bodies to handle. Perhaps not, though, so take near a bathroom your first couple of servings.
Also, MTS Nutrition recommends a 4-weeks on, 4-weeks off cycle to minimize risk, while stating that an anti-estrogen supplement is not necessary for offsetting Barracuda’s test boosts.
