Vapor X5, Simplified

A running theme for MuscleTech products appears to be stating great facts about two-scoop servings – only to trick you about the number of servings on their tub, (i.e. pretending all you need is one scoop).

Similar to their Neurocore pre-workout, each tub really has only only half the servings that they claim (assuming you actually want to take the effective dose of any of the ingredients).

It’s also a very similar formula, but for some reason a lot more expensive.


  • 1.9 cups of coffee’s worth of caffeine per scoop

The recommended 2-scoop serving would contain almost 4 cups of coffee, which is quite a bit!


  • Caffeine – Improves alertness and motivation (good dose)
  • Agmatine Inositol Silicate – May reduce depression and anxiety (good dose, but only works in those who have those issues)
  • L-Theanine – Increases focus through promoting relaxation without sedation (poor dose)
  • Choline Bitartrate – May improve cognition and mood (poor form of choline)

None of the effects from these ingredients are too pronounced, expect for those of caffeine – especially at 2 scoops.

The theanine dose is quite small, but it might enhance focus a bit, especially at 2 scoops. For best effects it would have been dosed at about the same level as caffeine, which isn’t the case here.

Choline bitartrate is a cheap source of choline, and will have almost no effect, especially at the dose provided.

Agmatine could be great if you have anxiety or depression, otherwise it’s only really there for pump effects.


  • Beta Alanine – Improves endurance by delaying fatigue (poor dose)
  • Betaine – Improves power output and endurance (poor dose)
  • Caffeine – Can increase power output and endurance at higher doses (poor dose)
  • Creatine Monohydrate – Increases power output and endurance via increased ATP energy (poor dose)

A bunch of performance ingredients are in Vapor X5, but are only provided at effective doses if you take 2 scoops.

2 scoops actually gives quite good performance results, but could still be improved slightly. Also remember that you only get 15 serves per tub if you double up the dose.


  • Agmatine Inositol Silicate – Increases pumps via nitric oxide production (good dose)
  • Creatine – Can increase cell volume (poor dose)
  • Taurine – May increase cell volume (poor dose)

Pumps would be much better using 2 scoops of Vapor X5, which would give you a much better dose of all the above.


  • Yohimbe/Yohimbine – Fat-burner (poor dose)

Like Neurocore, Vapor X5 provides few extras except an irrelevant dose of yohimbine.


Vapor X5 isn’t bad at 2 scoops, but at 15 servings per tub at this dose, you’d be better off spending your money elsewhere.

Their other pre-workout Neurocore is a better choice, since it’s similar, yet cheaper and provides more servings per tub.
