If you have ever taken a pre-workout or performance supplement and felt itching or tingles, that’s just the beta-alanine coursing through your veins. So what is beta alanine? Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid. The reason it’s frequently included in pre-workout supplements is due to its ability to increase muscle carnosine levels—a critical muscle Ph buffer. You can read more about beta alanine here. Beyond Raw LIT pre-workout includes 3.2 g CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine—one of the most popular beta-alanine supplements on the market—and is clinically shown to increase muscle pH buffering carnosine levels.
Creatine is a huge buzz word in performance supplementation. It’s one of the most widely studied sports nutrition supplements and is included in the best pre-workouts for a good reason—it helps you push for those extra reps. Beyond Raw Lit pre-workout powder contains 1.5g micronized creatine in each scoop, in the form of creatine monohydrate.
Beyond Raw LIT is dosed with a solid 250mg caffeine anhydrous in every scoop or can of pre-workout. Caffeine is a clutch ingredient included in many pre-workout supplements because it helps support improved physical endurance activity and performance and reaction time. When it’s consumed in doses of 100mg-400mg it provides thermogenic benefits, which means it fuels calorie burn.
Two other ingredients you’ll find in LIT are ElevATP and Neurofactor. LIT contains 150mg of ElevATP, a combination of ancient peat and apple extract, and 100mg NeuroFactor, a patented extract of whole fruit from the Coffea Arabica plant.
L-citrulline and Nitrosigine, a patented complex of arginine and silicon, provide pump and N.O. support. Beyond Raw LIT features 3g of l-citrulline, which can be recycled to arginine in the citrulline/nitric oxide cycle, in turn contributing to nitric oxide production. LIT includes 1.5g of Nitrosigine, which helps fuel nitric oxide levels for enhanced blood flow and intense muscle pumps.
