Vaughn Walker’s Raw Nutrition RAW Pre Sour Flavor Will Return!

It’s been way too long since we’ve talked about Raw Nutrition RAW PRE – a low-stimulant pre-workout supplement for those who don’t want as much caffeine as Raw Nutrition’s CBum Thavage Pre or Raw Pre Extreme.

Well, Revive MD / Raw Nutrition sponsored athlete Vaughn Walker is giving us a great reason to talk about it again – an exclusive, limited-edition SOUR flavor of RAW PRE – and word is that it’ll be back!

Raw Nutrition RAW Pre Vaughn Walker Sour

Vaughn Walker has a new limited-edition flavor of Raw Nutrition’s RAW Pre — with just 100 milligrams of caffeine in 2 scoops — and it’s SOUR as F***!

Vaughn Walker Goes Sour with RAW PRE

Raw PRE, which sports just 100 milligrams of caffeine per two-scoop serving, was actually Raw Nutrition’s first pre-workout supplement. This showed that the brand’s founders — Matt Jansen and Dr. Domenic Iacovone — were more interested in performance than just getting athletes stimmed up.

Of course, the higher-charged pre-workouts eventually came, especially with the addition of Chris Bumstead to the team, but it was really Raw PRE that was one of the first six supplements launched by the brand. But sometimes, you just need a little charge-up, but want a fully-powered pump. Great for weaning off stimulants, mixing with a moderately-stimmed fat burner, or workouts that are later in the afternoon.

RAW PRE Ingredient Recap

For a full analysis, you can read our article titled RAW Nutrition RAW PRE: Low-Stim Pre-Workout (100mg Caffeine), and that title says it all — low-stim is the name of the game here! But caffeine isn’t the only stimulant, as we also have some added synephrine from citrus aurantium.

Each two-scoop, 19 gram serving of RAW Pre has the following:

  • L-Citrulline Malate – 7g

    Raw Nutrition Raw PRE Ingredients The first of three nitric oxide enhancers, citrulline malate contains L-citrulline, which leads to nitric oxide (NO) by way of L-arginine, having shown itself to be better at the job than supplementing arginine itself!

  • GlycerSize (65% Glycerol Powder) – 3g

    A trademarked form of glycerol that provides hydrating cellular volumization to increase both pumps and endurance. Make sure you drink enough water!

  • L-Tyrosine – 2g

    L-Tyrosine is a focus-boosting amino acid that increases the body’s ability to produce feel-good catecholamine neurotransmitters, and is great for thyroid hormone production as well.

  • Agmatine Sulfate – 1.5g

    The second of our three NO boosters, agmatine acts as an arginase inhibitor, which means that it helps prevent the breakdown of arginine, keeping more arginine and more nitric oxide around.

  • Nitrosigine (Inositol-Stabilized Arginine Silicate) – 1.5g

    A patented nitric oxide booster that rounds out the NO trifecta, Nitrosigine is a form of arginine silicate from Nutrition21 that lasts longer and stronger than standard L-arginine. There’s additional research backing it up as a nootropic ingredient thanks to improved blood flow to the brain.

  • Alpha-GPC 50% (L-Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine) – 600mg

    Raw Nutrition RAW Pre Vaughn Walker Sour

    Need a low-caffeine pre-workout that still has punch?!

    A clinically-studied dose of Alpha-GPC that serves as a high-bioavailability choline source. Not only is choline important for membranes, it helps the brain generate acetylcholine, which we dub “the learning neurotransmitter”. This can help increase focus, motor control, and the “mind-muscle connection”.

  • Caffeine Anhydrous – 100mg

    Everyone knows the adenosine-inhibiting molecule that wakes you up! What’s unique in RAW Pre is that there’s just 50 milligrams of caffeine in each scoop – perfect for low-stim folks, evening workouts, or those who are already on a fat burner.

  • Citrus Aurantium (standardized to Synephrine at 30%) – 68mg

    Synephrine is a stimulant that increases energy expenditure by binding to beta-3 adrenergic receptors. It’s useful in weight loss situations, and helps amp up the workout more. Like caffeine, this is a relatively mild dose.

  • Huperzine A 1% (Huperzia Serrata Leaf Extract) – 20mcg

    Huperzine A has a unique ability to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine — it inhibits acetylcholinesterase. This is synergistic with alpha-GPC, which is supporting the production of acetylcholine — and Huperzine A helps keep it around.

Again, you can see the bigger details in our main RAW Pre blog post.

    RAW Pre: For Those Who Don’t Need a Stim-Bomb

    When Raw Nutrition first launched, we were impressed that their first pre-workout was a low-stim one in RAW Pre. This is an athlete’s brand, and ergogenic performance comes first.

    Of course, we eventually saw two higher-stimulant pre-workouts in Raw Pre Extreme and CBum’s Thavage, but the original will always be this 100-milligram-caffeine two-scooper.

    Perhaps it’s time to remember co-founder Matt Jansen’s original quote we published on our original RAW Pre article:

    “We really wanted to make a brand that focused on the individual raw ingredients and not cut corners when it came to the amounts of the most beneficial ingredients from a performance perspective. Our slogan is ‘From the Ground Up’, which simply means taking the most researched ingredients at the doses that are shown to induce the most amount of positive benefit for that ingredient within its individual category and turning them into the best overall products.”
