With tedious amounts of research and development, GNC has a real winner with this line that will not only give you real results but help you find a healthy way of reaching those results. Trusting GNC and Beyond Raw will not leave you wishing you hadn't.


Most consumers agree that the taste of this BCAA powder is better than most others they have tried. When we saw that this product contains Sucralose it gave us a bit of worry. Sucralose is known for making products overly sweet and for leaving a terrible aftertaste in your mouth. This isn't the case with Beyond Raw Precision BCAA. There is a good balance to the flavor. Some flavors may be a bit tart but in general, they all taste good. BCAAs are also known for being quite bitter. There are no reports of this product being exceptionally bitter. We believe you will be pleasantly surprised by the taste if you decide to give it a go.


Keeping some variety in your flavor options is very important to some people and can keep your weekly routine interesting. There are six flavor options for this product, which is quite a few more than others you find on today's market. On top of there being a good amount of options, they are all well-liked so you really can't go wrong regardless of what you decide to try first. You will have your choice between Peach Tea, Gummy Worm, Blue Raspberry Lemonade, Tropical Punch, Ice Tea Lemonade, and Watermelon. Gummy Worm is the clear front-runner for favorite flavor but again they all are very well-liked.


Consistency is where this product fails us a bit. There are many reports stating that this product is hard to mix, even when using shaker bottles. When your supplement does not dissolve completely, not only does it give it an awful texture, it also means you probably aren't getting the full serving. This is due to the fact that it will stick to the sides or settle at the bottom of your water bottle. It is important to note that some customers break their serving up and mix it in two separate bottles and it seems to dissolve a bit better when the powder content is reduced. If it does not mix well you will have a gritty drink that leaves your mouth feeling quite chalky. Most can get past this but for some, it may be a deal breaker.


This product is exceptionally effective in a variety of ways. Not only will you be getting the BCAAs that keep your muscles away from soreness and growing quickly you will also gain extra hydration through included Electrolytes. They include ingredients to help with your performance. You will have more energy and focus to do what needs to be done to crush it every day at the gym or whatever activity you decide to take on. Watching your strength and power increase as you continue to use this product is something you will certainly notice and appreciate. Customers agree this product performs better than expected and it is a huge part of the reason they keep coming back.


When looking at ingredients they fall into a couple of categories. The ones that are most important to a BCAA supplement and the extras that take it a step above others in its class. The content of micronized Branched Chain Amino Acids equals a total of ten grams. It is made up of L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine in a 2:1:1 ratio. This covers all of the Branch Chain Amino Acids that your body can not produce on its own. They also add Betaine Anhydrous and Univestin to help with power increase and reduced inflammation.

Looking at the other ingredients, they include Magnesium, Chromium, Sodium, Calcium, and Potassium. These are minerals that help with hydration. They also include a small amount of natural and artificial flavorings, Citric and Malic acid, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Sunflower Lecithin, and dyes. These are all used to help with flavoring, texture, and of course coloring. This is a good mix of ingredients and the lack of proprietary blends is reassuring that this is a genuine product.


To start this product helps with muscle Protein synthesis. What this means is it helps your body use Amino Acids more effectively to help you build muscle more quickly. Then there is the fact that it contains Betaine Anhydrous. This ingredient helps your muscles perform at their highest level. Scientifically and clinically backed many supplements are starting to add this to their formula because it really does enhance the performance of your muscles. In line with all of this, Beyond Raw BCAA Precision will help you with fast recovery. The less soreness you feel after a tough workout the more you will be able to do the next day. With this cycle, you will be losing fat and gaining muscle quicker than before and feel less pain. Who can complain?


Many supplements like this want to help with hydration as it is a key component to keeping not only you but also your muscles healthy. They include Electrolytes in their product that will help with your hydration. It is especially helpful after a super sweaty gym session. In addition to the Electrolytes, they include you will also be mixing this product with at least eight ounces of water. So, by adding in a BCAA supplement you will not only have the hydrating power of Electrolytes you will also be adding a full eight ounces of water into your daily routine and making it much simpler to guarantee hydration.

Vitamins & Minerals

Electrolytes are one of the main minerals in our blood. This product provides us with Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Chromium, and Sodium which are all Electrolyte minerals. Adding them into the mix, helps with hydration, as stated above. Many supplements are adding these types of minerals into their formulas as they have found it really helps with how your muscles feel and it is common that people don't get enough in their diets alone. It is important to note, depending on what other supplements you take that may contain these elements you may want to see how much is too much before stacking one on top of the other.


While there are many products in this category that are not going to add to your daily carb count, this one is going to. Each serving carries six grams of carbohydrates. For those of you that are on low or no carb diets, this is going to be a deal breaker. While it is not an exorbitant amount it is still enough to matter in your daily totals. For many others, this will not be a huge concern but we do feel it should be taken into consideration when deciding if this is the supplement you want to use for increasing your BCAAs.


Deciding which ingredients are being used as fillers and which aren't can be hard, especially if a brand uses proprietary blends. Beyond Raw gives us a clear label and breaks down the amounts of each ingredient. This is a really good sign that there are no fillers involved. With further research we have found that this is the truth, you will not encounter filler ingredients in this product. Untrustworthy brands use filler ingredients to make a product look like it is better for you than it is or to make it seem as if you are getting more than you actually are. What is their end game? Money. Deciding to try and trust this brand will save you money in the long run and you will actually be getting what they claim you are, a product that really works.


A serving of this product is quite a bit higher than others like it. You will need to use two full scoops totaling about twenty grams of powder. This plays a big role in how difficult this product is to get fully mixed. Most other brands only require about half this much but they also contain a much lower BCAA count per serving. There is no variety in container size and you will get about thirty servings per container. This is enough to last a month but should be thought about if you aren't someone that likes to make purchases like this on a monthly basis. You can use this product at any point of your day but on workout days it works best when used pre or post workout. On rest days you can use it whenever you find it to be convenient.

Side Effects

Users have not reported any negative side effects while using this product. That does not mean there is not a potential for experiencing some. Pretty much all supplements have a chance to cause you a bit of problem. Branched Chain Amino Acids are responsible for a few on their own. These include stomach upset, bloating, decreased motor function, and fatigue. It is also recommended that women that are pregnant or breastfeeding avoid using this type of supplement. If you are taking medications you may want to check with a healthcare professional to make sure none of the ingredients will cause an adverse reaction.


This product carries a large list of advantages. You will have a good variety of flavors to chose from and a plus note is that they are all good. Not only will you recover faster, improve muscle maintenance, and increase lean muscle growth while using this product you will also see an increase in your overall performance. Extra hydration and the drive to push harder and farther than ever before are also major bonuses to using this product. It doesn't contain any filler ingredients and seems to be free of terrible side effects. Overall, this product really works and will help you blow past your current fitness goals.


There is a very short list of items that we see as disadvantages in this product. First, we have to mention the mixability and consistency. This product is tough to mix and the texture of your drink will probably leave something to be desired. You also don't have a choice in container size which for some is very frustrating. Lastly, this product does contain a decent amount of carbohydrates. This will make it an absolute no-go for those that avoid carbs. Other than this we really can't find much wrong with this option.


This product is pricier than others in its class. Partially because it is filled with superior ingredients and partially because it is more than just a stripped-down Branched Chain Amino Acid powder. If you are currently buying this type of product the increase in price should not be a huge deal to absorb. Using it for the first time may mean you need to make an adjustment to the budget and for some, it may be more than you can handle. Value is not only about cost but also about the benefits of adding a product into your routine. This product is exceptionally effective and will help you along your journey towards optimal health and we feel it increases the value of it. Overall, customers agree that this product is a very good value.

Bottom Line

Looking at the pros and cons of using this product, we feel that in the world of BCAA supplements this is a very good one. You will know exactly what you are getting and the flavors won't make you gag. There are a few shortcomings but all in all, it exceeds expectations in the way of its performance in helping you with yours. It's a bit pricey, sure, but oftentimes we get what we pay for. There are no reports of side effects that can leave you wishing you had never added a supplement into your life at all. You will improve muscle growth, maintenance, and recovery times and you will notice the change quickly. We believe you will truly love this product if given the chance.
