RAW Synergies Thermo Pre: 2-in-1 Fat Burning Pre Workout

RAW Synergies Thermo Pre

RAW Synergies has released a 2 in 1 thermogenic fat burner that can also double as a perfect moderate stim pre workout for fasted cardio days.

A few weeks back, we introduced you to RAW Synergies, a brand dedicated to making premium quality supplements using the very best available trademarked ingredients. Previously, we’ve featured the brand’s brain-boosting natural testosterone booster, Black Lion, and today we’re back with another new release from the young brand.

Thermo Pre is RAW Synergies’ 2-in-1 thermogenic pre workout powder helping you burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Fans of powdered “thermo pre’s” have been looking for a quality replacement for their fat burning needs since the previous king Alphamine went through a rather mind-numbing makeover.

We’ve got more info on this new fat-burning, performance boosting drink below, but first, take a moment to check the best deal and sign up for alerts from PricePlow:

Thermo Pre Ingredients

Thermo Pre contains a mix of energy boosters, fat loss enhancers, and focus aids to support your weight loss and performance goals during exercise.

  • Beta Alanine (1.6g)

    RAW Synergies Thermo Pre Ingredients

    Thermo Pre is completely open label and contains a solid mix of performance boosters and proven fat burning agents

    A staple of just about every pre workout available, beta alanine shows up at a modest 1.6g dose — about half the dose you need per day. Beta alanine increases muscle carnosine levels, which improves your body’s ability to buffer lactic acid, thereby prolonging endurance and stamina.[1,2]

    Most of the clinical trials on beta alanine recommend dividing the doses up throughout the day to optimize nutrient absorption, so if you’re looking to really get the most of beta alanine, you’ll want to get a couple additional grams in your post workout or some other point during the day.

    Message for Keto Dieters: May slow getting into ketosis

    One note for dieters trying to keep their blood sugar low is that beta alanine is slightly glucogenic, meaning part of it can get converted into glucose. If not burnt off, that small amount can actually be stored as fat.

    That’s not a big deal, but for keto dieters who are attempting to get into ketosis as fast as possible, we recommend staying off glucogenic amino acids during their transition period. After that, the pros of beta alanine seem to outweigh the cons, even for keto dieters.

  • Acetyl L-Carnitine (1g)

    RAW Synergies Thermo Pre Features

    Better flavoring, more servings, and a revamped formula make Thermo Pre an prime choice.

    Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is a dual nootropic/fat burning ingredient. It easily crosses the blood-brain barrier where it’s used in the production of acetylcholine — the “learning” neurotransmitter. Increased levels of acetylcholine enhance cognition, reduce mental fatigue, and elevate mood — 3 attributes that commonly decline when dieting.[3,4,5,6]

    Additionally, ALCAR also encourages fatty acid uptake into the mitochondria, making for better fat burning.

  • MCT 70% Powder (357mg)

    MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) powder contains a special type of fat that is rapidly taken up by the body and immediately used for energy, similar to how a fast-digesting carb works. But, MCTs won’t be converted to stored fat, even if they’re consumed alongside some carbs. Consuming some MCTs pre workout means you’ll start burning fat for fuel immediately during training.[7]

    Getting back to keto and low-carb dieters (per our beta alanine warning above), MCT Oil definitely increases ketone levels, and will be assisted by the “Acetyl” part of the ALCAR above, so this may help blunt any effects of beta alanine if transitioning into a fat-adapted / ketosis state. Everyone else should be good to go.

  • KSM-66 (300mg)

    RAW Synergies Thermo Pre Comparison

    RAW Synergies is a cleaner, more natural fat burner than the competition.

    One of the most popular adaptogens around, KSM-66 is the industry-leading form of ashwagandha extract standardized to >5% withanolides. Though it’s commonly supplemented for relieving stress and anxiety, it’s almost a wonder what KSM-66 isn’t good for as the litany of research on it finds it useful for athletic performance, recovery, testosterone levels, cognition, and weight management.[8,9,10]

  • Natural Caffeine (250mg)

    Dieting can bring about low energy, motivation, and focus. What better way to get everything running at normal speed that with a stout dose of caffeine?!

    Thermo Pre contains 250mg of natural caffeine to provides a smooth, strong, and consistent energy high that will power you through your workout and never leave you with any sort of crash.

  • Cognizin Citicoline (150mg)

    One of our favorite forms of choline, Cognizin citicoline is a patented form of citicoline (a.k.a. CDP Choline). It works in conjunction with ALCAR (discussed above) to boost acetylcholine levels yielding better concentration, focus, and productivity.

    Brain fog and lack of mental focus is a common side effect of dieting, and the combo of Citicoline + ALCAR should be just the thing you need to be mentally alert and “with it” even when you’re on poverty calories.

    Choline also improves the utilization and transportation of carnitine into cells.[11,12] Here is yet another synergism between ALCAR and choline making for better focus AND fat burning.

  • Yerba Mate (100mg)

    RAW Synergies Thermo Pre Table

    Home, office, or gym — Thermo Pre is the any day anytime energy boosting fat burner to help you perform better.

    Yerba is a plant belonging to the holly family and traditionally brewed as a tea. It’s frequently touted as the “perfect marriage” of coffee and green tea. Theoretically, it provides the energy burst of coffee with the health benefits of green tea, though not much research has been conducted to show this. Yerba Mate is packed with polyphenols, which may be the cause for its fat-burning properties, thought its leaves contain less polyphenols than that of tea leaves.[13]

  • Theacrine (75mg)

    To provide some long-lasting energy and mood enhancement, RAW Synergies has included 75mg theacrine (from tasteless teacrine). Note that the 75mg is the yield of from a total of 187.5mg of tasteless teacrine (which is 40%).

    Theacrine is similar to caffeine in structure, but provides a more sustained energy release compared to caffeine’s immediate surge in energy. Another area where the two diverge is in that theacrine DOES NOT come with a tolerance build up[14,15], something you can’t say about caffeine..

  • Capsimax (50mg)

    For the “thermo” component of Thermo Pre, RAW Synergies adds in 50mg worth of Capsimax, the patented form of capsaicin, the spicy, pungent alkaloid found in chile peppers responsible for its tongue-numbing bite.

    Capsimax increases thermogenesis and decreases appetite,[16,17] making for greater calorie burning during the day and less consumption. Taken together, this culminates if faster fat loss.

  • BioPerine (5mg)

    RAW Synergies Thermo Pre Need

    Thermo Pre contains you need to burn fat fast during your cardio session.

    Finally, 5mg worth of the patented black pepper extract BioPerine is added to Thermo Pre to enhance the absorption of all the other energy-boosting, fat burning compounds contained inside.

Flavors Available

RAW Synergies is committed to providing “cleaner” products without the artificial fillers, colors, and sweeteners contained in the vast majority of supplements on the market. In line with that, you’ll find no artificial sweeteners in Thermo Pre. Sweeteners that are included are stevia and monk fruit.

Currently, Thermo Pre is available in only one flavor currently, fruit punch.

Takeaway: Cool new company we have here

The thermogenic pre workout powder market is one niche of the market that has been fairly quiet as of late, and RAW Synergies is looking to capitalize on the void created by the reformulation of Alphamine with the release of Thermo Pre. It’s certainly got enough energy boosters to make for a solid pre workout along with sufficient fat burning compounds to enhance your weight loss efforts.
