Beyond Raw LIT pre workout supplement is made and sold solely by GNC. If there is one thing GNC knows how to do it is making a great product that will appeal to a huge variety of people. Their brand and products have been trusted by everyday people all the way up to professional athletes for generations. They believe in creating the best products at decent prices. From caffeine pills to pre-workouts, and Whey or Vegan Protein powders, this brand truly has you covered. There is pretty much nothing you could need that they won't have available for you. Their pre-workout supplements have been being used for decades and that is why millions of people across the globe have been flocking to them for all their supplement needs.


In terms of taste, this product is so well received we may say they are the best in today's market. They have nailed their flavors giving a variety that actually tastes as they should. All of the flavors do seem to be well-liked with very few reviews stating otherwise. The taste isn't overpowering and seems to have a good balance of sweetness. Compared to other products in this category, these are all exceptionally appreciated things and oftentimes things we hate about our pre-workout supplements. You won't be disappointed when you decide to give it a try. Clearly being able to taste the difference your taste buds will be thanking you for the change before killing it at the gym.


You won't be offered a huge variety of flavor choices when you decide to give this product a try. However, the flavors that are available are exceptionally loved by users. You will have your choice of Gummy Worm, Icy Fireworks, Fruit Punch, and Blue Raspberry. As with any decent pre-workout, the Blue Raspberry and Fruit punch are spot on and a common choice among pre-workout users. When talking about the flavors that customers like the best, this is where we find the Gummy Worm and Icy Fireworks varieties. Gummy Worm is by far the most loved of the flavors and is said to taste exactly like gummy worms. In a close second is the Icy Fireworks variety. No matter what you choose we are fairly certain you will enjoy it for many workouts to come and then you will be headed back for more.


Beyond Raw LIT's formula not only offers a great taste it also offers a great consistency. So many pre-workout powders are exceptionally difficult to mix leading to them not being fully dissolved when you try to drink it. Not only are you not getting your full serving because it's stuck to your water bottle but it also gives you a horrible gritty feeling in your mouth while trying to drink it. Trusting this brand is to know that you won't have to deal with either of these things. It will dissolve easily and quickly. This will leave you with a smooth and delicious pre-workout drink that you look forward to a day in and day out.


While this product is quite effective upon the initial use it seems that it doesn't last for a very long time. You are only going to notice a significant increase in your energy, focus, and pumps for about an hour and a half. This is not an exceptionally long time, especially when comparing this product to others in its class as many outperform it in terms of longevity of use. If an hour and a half is plenty of time for you to complete your routine then you have nothing to worry about as in this timeframe this product really shows results. You will have great drive and energy to put your all into your workout session. No matter how hard you want to hit it while using this product you are sure to hit it harder than ever.


We love the clarity of the ingredient list used by this product. There are no proprietary blends which means you will know exactly what you are getting and how much. This makes it easier when you decide you want to stack other supplements with your pre-workout. It contains Sodium and Potassium to start. Then we go into their energy and mental intensity ingredients. This consists of Beta-Alanine, Micronized Creatine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Ancient Peat Extract, Apple Extract, and Coffee Arabica. They move into the pump and support section which is simply made of L-Citrulline and Arginine Silicate Inositol. Lastly, there are a few other ingredients that are for consistency and flavor such as, Citric Acid, Sucralose, and Acesulfame Potassium. This is a standard list of ingredients for this type of product and they are proven to help you achieve the results you have been looking for.


Caffeine content can really impact how your pre-workout supplement works and how it leaves you feeling when it wears off. Some carry exceptionally high values which make a crash occurring more of a concern than those products with less caffeine. This option gives you two hundred and fifty milligrams of caffeine per serving. This is pretty average among these types of products. It isn't a huge amount of caffeine and most people can handle it without any major side effects like the jitters or rapid heartbeats. If you are exceptionally sensitive to caffeine you should probably decrease your initial serving size until you know how your body is going to react to this particular supplement.


Limiting your sugar intake is something pretty much all health-conscious people do. When you decide to make this your preferred pre-workout you won't have to worry about increasing your daily sugar intake. Sucralose is used for the sweetness factor and is commonly used in products like this because it doesn't add actual sugar to it. Sucralose is derived from sugar but is indeed an artificial sweetener. You have probably used a variety of products that use it and may remember them to be overly sweet or for leaving a bad aftertaste in your mouth. These things are often associated with this sweetening agent. Beyond Raw LIT pre workout has a great formula that has an excellent balance of Sucralose. This means you won't find it to be gaggingly sweet and there are only a few reports of an unpleasant aftertaste.


L-Citrulline is responsible for the increased circulation you get with this product. Looking for serious pumps and muscles that can really hang in there during a total sweat fest? This product will help you to do these very things. Increasing your blood flow means your muscles get more nutrients and Oxygen. With the increase in these two things, your muscles will have what it takes to take your performance to a whole new level. If you have never tried a pre-workout you will see quickly the difference this will truly make. For those of you who have been using pre-workouts for years, you will still notice the increase and it will be comparable to other products that are at the top of this class.


When looking through customer reviews we have found a variety of responses. The answer to whether or not this product is going to make you crash, well, it depends on the person. For many, there is not any crashing effect and they feel fine after even a heavy workout. For others, a serious gym session is going to be followed up by a nap and some serious crashing energy levels. If you are sensitive to caffeine you should probably not start this product at its full serving. This will allow you to see how it makes you feel before enduring a serious crash you aren't expecting. For those of you that are quite used to increased caffeine levels and more potent pre-workout supplements, understand you may feel a faster decrease in energy when using this product.


Fillers are not something you are going to need to worry about when you use this option by Beyond Raw. Their label is quite transparent, showing you exactly and how much of pretty much all the ingredients save for what they use in coloring, flavoring, and consistency listed. The other ingredients count for less than two percent of the formula which is very little. Paying more for bulked up products that look like they are carrying more nutrients than they are is a worry of the past when using this. No more spending hours reading third party breakdowns of ingredients to ensure you are getting what you are paying for. This is something that sets our mind at ease about making this product part of our daily routine.


A serving of this product is almost fourteen grams or one of their scoops. This is a bit more powder than you may be used to using as other brands use as little as eight-gram scoops. When it comes to the container size you have two choices. You can order a thirty or sixty serving container. Depending on how much you use your pre-workout you will want to take this into consideration. Each scoop is approximate and if you tend to use a heavy scoop thirty servings may not be enough to get through an entire month before you need to order more. On the other hand, if you only use this type of supplement a few days a week thirty servings should be plenty to get you from one month to the next.

Side Effects

As with all stimulant supplements, this one also comes with side effects. You are probably pretty used to the tingly sensation that comes with just about every pre-workout supplement. Likely, you will experience that here too. Additionally, for some, the jitters are a bit of a problem and of course the crash you may experience. Those that are very sensitive to caffeine may experience a headache or upset stomach from this product as well. There have been not been frequent reports of this. Compared to other pre-workouts, this is a very small list of side effects. The fewer side effects you need to worry about the better and this is one of the best in terms of this.


We feel there is quite a list of advantages to using this product. You get tasty flavors that blend up easily leaving you with an easy to swallow pre-workout drink you can actually look forward to drinking. You will get the energy boost you need to get a good workout every day and you will experience very few side effects while using it. Your pumps and stamina will also increase which will improve your overall performance every time you decide to use it. Additionally, this brand gives great transparency on its label. When you spend your days focused on your health you want to make sure your supplements are there to support you not drag you down with unwanted fillers and ingredients that don't benefit us in the long run.


Trying to find disadvantages about this product was a bit more difficult than with others we have reviewed in the past. The biggest disadvantage that we can find is the fact that the time you will get with increased energy and drive is decreased as compared to others in the same category. There are also quite a few reports about it causing a crashing effect. Part of this may be because these users are used to a product that lasts quite a bit longer. Other than these issues we don't see much else wrong with this product. We also feel that these are not too bad in terms of disadvantages, especially if you start looking into others. This isn't to say there aren't other great pre-workout supplements out there, you just want to make sure to do your research before buying.


This product is made by GNC. They are trusted across the globe by millions of people because their products are very high-quality. This product is the same, very high-quality. The ingredients used are clear and concise. You will have a great effect and you will notice the improvement in your performance at the gym quickly. Great pumps and increased energy will be noticed upon your first use. Consumers are quite good at finding the best quality products and ensuring the bad ones out there are well known so that others don't make the same mistakes. This product is backed by tons of customers and we believe it to be one of the top quality pre-workout supplements on the market today.


There are a lot of factors that go into the overall value of a product. Price definitely plays its part and for this product, you are going to pay a bit more per serving than with other items in the same category. You may have to make a slight adjustment to your pre-workout budget but if already buying this type of product you should be able to handle the slight increase with relative ease. Adding in the thoughts of all the advantages that this product offers and we see the value increase significantly. The fact that there are so few side effects is a huge player in the value of using Beyond Raw LIT. Overall, we feel this product carries great value and should be given the chance to become your new preferred pre-workout drink.
