MTS Nutrition Machine Fuel - Intraworkout BCAA Supplement

"I knew the power of Intraworkout Nutrition with the proven BCAA ratio of 2:1:1 Leucine:Isoleucine:Valine when I first tried it. I knew it would be the next big thing in the sport nutrition industry. So I set out relentlessly to educate the world on this miraculous yet basic supplement. Years later, it is still a growing category and with MTS Nutrition Machine Fuel I had a chance to improve upon an already amazing category. Machine Fuel is my choice for intraworkout BCAA supplementation and if anyone knows intraworkout supplementation, it’s me."

-Marc Lobliner, CEO of MTS Nutrition


We all know recovery is crucial when it comes to building lean muscle mass. However, most are unaware of the fact that they are breaking down muscle tissue when they train, not building it. This is why proper rest and nutrients are essential if you are looking to maximize your gains. Protein is the building blocks of muscle and Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein! Amino Acids are the key macronutrient responsible for creating muscle.

Marc "The Machine" Lobliner created the "intraworkout" category in 2004. His belief in the benefits of BCAA was so great that he traveled around the world educating individuals on the importance of BCAA during training. Thereafter, a new, enormous category was born and several studies validating the importance of BCAA during training surfaced. Adhering the most stringent quality control standards, Machine Fuel combines the proven 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA to enhance recovery and reduce muscle breakdown with AgmaPure for enhanced pump and protein assimilation, Taurine for cellular hydration and coconut water powder to naturally replace electrolytes lost during training. The BCAA in Machine Fuel are derived from 100% VEGAN INSTAMINOS.


L-Leucine (3g), L-Isoleucine (1.5g), L-Valine (1.5g)

L-Leucine: Deemed as the most important of the three BCAAs, L-Leucine positively affects muscle protein synthesis (Blomstrand et al., 2006) which aids in promoting new muscle growth. This is extremely important when striving for hypertrophy and adding quality lean muscle mass. L-Leucine helps prevent the breakdown of muscle, or muscle wasting (atrophy/catabolism) itself. This can be extremely important when dieting and trying to maintain as much muscle mass as possible. When L-Leucine is metabolized, ketones are produced (Holmes et al, 1995) and are used as a source of energy and fuel for both the brain as well as the body.

L-Isoleucine: One of the three branched chain amino acids, L-Isoleucine, has the ability to not only help the body recover from exercise and strenuous activity, but can also give the body an added boost of energy to improve stamina and endurance (Sharp et al., 2010). Like all BCAAs, L-Isoleucine cannot be manufactured by the body alone, and therefore would need to come from diet and supplementation where it can then be catabolized by the muscle and utilized.

L-Valine: Similar to L-Isoleucine, L-Valine is able to improve energy levels during exercise. And being that it is one of the “big three” in terms of branched chain amino acids, it’s needed to help promote recovery and muscle growth following resistance training. With the ability to help increase protein synthesis (Carunchio et al., 2010), L-Valine can help build stronger and larger muscle fibers.

Agmatine Sulfate (AgmaPure®): 500mg

Familiar with L-Arginine? It’s used in many pre-workout products to aid in providing a pump/vasodilation. Agmatine, is simply a metabolite of L-Arginine and has many benefits. You can find Agmatine in many pre-workouts as well as nootropic supplements. When it comes to benefits, Agmatine is great for mental functioning such as mental health, stress management, and mental clarity (Examine). Agmatine has the ability to aid in increasing insulin response which has the ability to improve body composition (Hwang et al., 2005). If looking to add quality mass to your physique, it’s important to push yourself in the gym. With the help of Agmatine, you can reduce perceived pain, allowing you to push harder and longer during workouts (Keynan et al., 2010). In order to build quality lean muscle mass, you also need to increase protein synthesis while shuttling nutrients to the muscles to help them rebuild and recover. Agmatine aids in regulating nitric oxide synthase to help produce nitric oxide which can than cause a vasodilation effect of the blood vessels to help transport nutrients throughout the body and into working muscles (Biolo, 1997). Another key benefit of Agmatine is it’s potential to affect testosterone levels. When there is a higher level of testosterone present, it primes the body to build muscle. Agmatine can also increase the secretion of luteinizing hormone, which is vital in testosterone production (Kalra et al., 1995).

L-Taurine: 1g

L-Taurine is known for controlling glucose levels (Nandhini et al., 2002), increasing fat oxidation (Rutherford et al., 2010), and improving physical performance (Balshaw et al., 2012). Besides the fitness related benefits, supplementing with L-Taurine also helps with cardiac functioning (Ahmadian et al., 2017), helps with the growth of brain cells (Ritiker, 2015), and can reduce the likelihood of metabolic syndrome – which includes lowering cholesterol levels, reducing triglycerides, improving glucose metabolism, as well as reducing blood pressure (Chen et al., 2016).

Coconut Water Powder: 2g

Machine Fuel now includes Coconut Water Powder! The demands put on the body during strenuous activity can deplete the body of vital nutrients. Coconut water powder is able to replenish lost micronutrients such as potassium, sodium, and chloride (Chavalittamrong et al., 1982). When added to a post-workout nutrition program, coconut water is able to aid in rehydration (Ismail et al., 2007) and provide the body with lost electrolytes. Non-exercise related, coconut water also has added health benefits such as lowering blood pressure (Alleyne et al., 2005) and lowering triglycerides and cholesterol levels (Sandhya et al., 2006). It provides several potential benefits including:

  • Electrolyte Replenishment
  • Lowered blood pressure: Studies have demonstrated coconut water might dramatically decrease blood pressure (1)(2)
  • Lower cholesterol and triglycerides (3)(4)

Machine Fuel has all the
Machine Fuel has all the ingredients to aid in protein synthesis!!! That is what we all need. Grape flavor tastes amazing the flavor is on point! For mix-ability, just don't use a spoon with water in a cup, use a shaker bottle with something that breaks up the substance inside of your bottle. Next, agmatine- just a refined arginine but for sure takes a lesser dosage to have the same effect. Machine fuel has proven clinical dosages of all ingredients within it to help your body make gains on gains. Like Marc said on The Tiger Fitness YouTube channel- "He is back in the game with this product!" Thumbs up to MTS- Great product!!! ninety-five servings will get you through the month with maybe a little more branched chains than you need but I believe you can't get enough, so stay away from the thirty servings because it will literally last two weeks with a hard lifter.

Machine Fuel 95 Servings: Explosion of GAINZ!!!
I bought this product 3 weeks ago because it had the best price for the highest quality on the market and it has no artifical colors (a real jaw dropper)! What I didn't expect was the amazing flavor. I only need to mix 1 scoop (out of the 95) in my 2.2 Liter water bottle and it flavors the whole thing; in comparison, I have to use 3 scoops of Blox to get the same flavor... But this product goes far beyond just great taste; it's also a product with a quality amino acid profile which I honestly believe has given me an explosion of GAINZ! After 3 weeks of using Machine Fuel as my intraworkout, I've put 3/4' on my arms and 1' on my legs, all muscle. These lean muscle gainz have blown me away, and weather the results come from enhanced and accelerated recvoery or just a better workout all around, I can testify that Machine Fuel works like a charm and IT'S NOT A GAME!

Best BCAA's I Have ever had!! (95 serving size)
Grape flavor is by far the best flavor I have had out of all of the MTS BCAA's, none of them taste bad but the grape blows them all out of the water!!!! I never run out of this product, if I get close I purchase another tub I have probably bought over ten of these within the past year!!!!!

Why no glutamine? Xtend, the leading intro BCAA adds it.
Benji P on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Glutamine, while having some benefits toward alkalinization in the body and debatably some benefits in preserving leucine, has been shown repeatedly to have little to no benefits for performance, recovery or lean mass gains/fat loss.

Agmatine is addeded due to it’s benefits. Agmatine is a byproduct of Arginine and at a much SMALLER dose of as low as 500mg you can elicit some great benefits, from pumps, to acting as a neurotransmitter (mental acuity), to removing metabolic waste. It does SO MUCH!
Is this 30 day supply?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you use 2 scoops per workout, it is MORE than a 30 day supply!
is it safe to mix machine fuel with mts clash?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, at the end of the day you are getting in your BCAAs. Arguably it could be better intra, but personally I believe as long as you get it in sometime during the day you are doing better than if you didn't! I mix mine with Clash, mix mine with my water pre workout or randomly during the day when I have a good time to do so. Hope this helps!
