Raw PRE Rocket Pop: Nostalgic and Sensibly Stimulating

image_pdfimage_print

roSince Raw Nutrition‘s awesome partnership with Chris Bumstead, we haven’t had many chances to write about Raw’s pre-Chris products. While Chris has brought a level of pure mass and energy to Raw’s newer lines, we also love to appreciate their older hits, like the much tamer, smoother pre-workout: Raw Nutrition RAW PRE.

Raw PRE Rocket Pop Flavor

Raw Nutrition has released a brand new Rocket Pop flavor of their original pre-workout formula, Raw PRE.

RAW Pre is a low-stimulant pre-workout formula, and it is a welcome counterbalance to RAW’s other, more intense pre-workouts: Raw Pre Extreme and CBum Thavage Pre-Workout.

Luckily, we get to write about RAW Pre again today because it has just been released in a new, oh-so-patriotic Rocket Pop flavor.

Rocket Pop RAW PRE – Every Day is Independence Day

Most pre-workouts are hitting the market these days, including the other ones Raw has been putting out, so juiced up with stimulants that one may say they are traditional pre-workouts on juice. And don’t get us wrong, many people love them. We love them. There’s no better way to lift some people to Valhalla than slamming down some 400 milligram caffeine pre-workout like the gym-bro version of Tony Montana.

But that’s not what RAW Pre is, and we think that’s a good thing. There are times when we don’t want to be bouncing off walls or throw a wrench in our circadian rhythms. Sometimes, we just want a little boost for that after-work gym session before we go home and go to bed.

Just 100 milligrams of caffeine in two scoops!

Raw PRE Pre-WorkoutRAW Pre was one of the first six supplements launched by Raw Nutrition, and it takes a very conservative approach to stimulants, boasting only 100 milligrams of caffeine. As far as the other main purpose of pre-workouts goes – pumps – RAW Pre has that nailed down.

So if you want an excellent pump with only a bit more stimulation than stim-free pre-workouts? RAW Pre is perfect for you.

We’re going to dive into a little summary on how RAW PRE works, but first, let’s check the PricePlow for good Raw deals, and check out our video review of the new flavor:

The New Flavor: Rocket Pop

Rocket Pops – that classic frozen treat. It calls to mind warm summer days, skating down to the park with your friends, and sweating all day before cooling off with a red, white and blue popsicle. It is, of course, Americana. And while winter may be here, there’s no reason we can’t channel the esoteric, mythic energy of the rocket pop to fuel us for our workouts.

The flavor is typically described as a combination of cherry, lemon-lime, and blue raspberry – a pretty darn good combo for a pre-workout. You have some sweetness, some tartness, and a lot of nostalgia. What could be better?

RAW PRE – How It Works

Raw Pre IngredientsFor a more in-depth view on the ingredients, check out our main Raw PRE article. Here’s a summary of what you get in a full two-scoop serving (leaving 20 servings per tub):

  • L-citrulline malate (7g) is a nutritional supplement that improves blood flow and circulation. It helps the body to better use oxygen and nutrients, which leads to improved exercise performance. It also helps to reduce fatigue and muscle soreness after exercise.
  • GlycerSize (3g), a trademarked form of glycerol powder, is a natural supplement that helps hydrate the cells of the body, leading to increased pumps and athletic endurance.
  • L-tyrosine (2g) is an amino acid that the body uses to produce the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. Supplementing with L-tyrosine has been shown to increase cognitive performance, alertness, and focus. It has also been shown to improve mood and reduce stress.
  • Agmatine sulfate (1.5g) is an arginase inhibitor, meaning it helps to prevent the breakdown of arginine, leading to more nitric oxide in the body — and synergizing with citrulline malate as well as the next ingredient:
  • Nitrosigine (1.5g) is a nutritional supplement that acts as a vasodilator. It relaxes blood vessels and increases blood flow. Nitrosigine also increases levels of nitric oxide, which has numerous benefits for the body, including increased cognitive function, improved circulation, and reduced inflammation. There are numerous human clinical studies at the 1.5 gram dose you’ll get here in two scoops of Raw PRE.
  • 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***!

    Alpha-GPC (600mg) is a choline-containing ingredient that is metabolized in the body to release free choline. Choline is essential for many bodily functions, including memory, muscle function, and metabolism. Alpha-GPC has been shown to improve memory, increase muscle mass, and decrease body fat.

  • Caffeine anhydrous (100mg) is, of course, a stimulant. It increases alertness and reduces fatigue. It also has other benefits, such as increasing stamina and improving focus. In RAW Pre, we’ve got a pretty low dose of caffeine, coming in at just 50mg in each scoop.
  • Citrus aurantium (standardized to 30% synephrine) (68mg) contains synephrine, which is structurally similar to ephedrine and acts as a stimulant. Citrus aurantium is thought to increase thermogenesis, which produces heat in the body. Citrus aurantium is also believed to increase metabolism and have appetite-suppressing effects.
  • Huperzine 1% (20mcg) is a nootropic supplement that acts as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. This means it increases levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain, which can improve memory, learning, and focus. As such, we have an awesome synergy here between huperzine A and alpha-gpc.

Raw PRE Rocket Pop

    Good Flavors: Key To Adherence

    400mg+ caffeine pre-workouts are all the rage. The industry is stim-maxxing, you might say. But in a world of supplemental extremism, Raw Nutrition continues to remind us with one of its flagship products that we don’t need to be extreme all the time.

    There are times when we just want a little boost and a great pump. That’s when RAW Pre really shines. And it shines even brighter when you marry it to an awesome, iconic, and refreshing flavor like Rocket Pop.
