Mach is a measurement of speed equal to the speed of sound (767 mph) that is most commonly used to describe the performance of jets. Anything capable of moving faster, also known as breaking the sound barrier, creates a BOOM noticed by all in the immediate surroundings. Mach-9™ was developed to make noise and to help bring your body to the level that everyone has to take notice.
Beta-Alanine to buffer lactic acid and blast through plateaus
L-Citrulline for nitric oxide generation and enhanced vasodilation
L-Tyrosine to support optimal neurotransmitter levels
Caffeine & Yohimbine for intense energy and motivation
By addressing key metabolic pathways to enhance performance, Mach-9™ is the best pre workout available. Break barriers with Mach-9™!
One of the essential B vitamins
Supports nutrient metabolism and the effective harnessing of energy from food.
Vitamin B6 also aids endurance by participating in the formation of hemoglobin and improve oxygen consumption
An essential B complex vitamin with broad effects
Also known as niacin
Helps improve mental acuity, reduce fatigue, and support endothelial health for better blood flow.
Intense exercise creates lactic acid, a metabolic byproduct, which causes the infamous “muscle burn.” Beta-alanine helps make exercise easier without reducing its great effects by helping to buffer – reduce the acidity – of lactic acid
The result is enhanced endurance and performance in the gym.
This has been exemplified by improved spring performance and body composition development.
L-Citrulline is a nitric oxide-generating amino acid that has far superior bioavailability and efficacy than L-arginine
L-Citrulline increases vascularity and improves work capacity – an extremely important factor for maximizing gains.
L-Citrulline is not destroyed in the liver, like arginine, and therefore is more efficacious for improving blood flow
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is a precursor to neurotransmitters that can enhance attention
Caffeine is a xanthine molecule with pronounced biological effects
Caffeine causes adrenaline release
Adrenaline gives us the best of both worlds – increased calorie burn and increased fat burn.
Increases pain tolerance, which is believed to be the primary mechanism by which it can improve endurance and athletic performance.
A natural herb that contains L-DOPA which can be converted to dopamine
Mucuna is often used in improving vigor, libido, and testosterone in men
It may reduce stress, preventing unwanted weight retention
Alpha yohimbine works synergistically with caffeine
Alpha-yohimbine is an alpha-adrenergic antagonist that may help boost mood.
Yohimbe Bark is an aphrodisiac used to increase vigor
Yohimbine helps keep adrenaline active within the body for prolonged energy and intensity levels.
It modulates the adrenergic receptors to help keep fat burning processes active
Huperzia Serrata (Std. min 1% Huperzine A)
Huperzine is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor.
Acetylcholine is a molecule which triggers muscle contraction.
By inhibiting the enzyme (acetylcholinesterase) that breaks down acetylcholine, more acetylcholine is available to send those cellular signals.
Q: What is the best way to use Mach-9?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix 1 serving in 8-12 fl oz of water and drink 15-30 minutes prior to training. If pre-workouts are new to you, or you are sensitive to caffeine, begin with ½ scoop to assess tolerance.
Q: What products can I stack with Mach-9?
A: Use Mach-9 pre-workout, Amino Prime during training, and Whey ISO post-workout to maximize results and recovery.

Works very well! Pretty strong!
this was the very first powderex preworkout ive ever used and it gave me the best pump ive had in the longest time! will be buying again
Tried Mach 9 after having tried C4 and 3 other pre workouts in the last few months and this one has definitely given me more energy, especially during my long runs. My endurance has hit another level as far as my cardio and I still have enough energy to lift. Blue Lemonade isn't normally a flavor I like, but this stuff is delicious! Looking forward to trying out Epitome Hardcore.
