Ever have the thought, early on in a workout, that you aren't quite ready yet, today, for this particular slog-fest? We have that sometimes, but in a lot of cases we just slog through it and end up not having a great time. What if we could be a little more prepared by drinking a pre-workout blend that made all the parts of your system a bit more jiggy with it? That would be the idea behind Natural Force Raw Tea, a blend of amazingness like guarana, ginseng, bee pollen, green tea, and other goodies shown to pump you up almost as well as Hans & Franz. ~
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
Raw Tea - that sounds, well, weird. Isn't tea supposed to be cooked and boiled and stuff? Not necessarily - not if you define tea as anything that is an herbal mixture you can drink. Then you'll find things like this intense pre-workout drink from Natural Force. There's a potent mix of herbs and energy ingredients to prep your body for the work to come - potent enough that they recommend not using more than two doses per day. Now it might sound weird, but when something comes with a cautionary warning, it gives me a better feeling that I'm dealing with a serious product - something to not be messed around with.
In Natural Force's own words: our Raw Tea is a unique blend of natural herbs, roots, fruit extracts, and superfoods to help give you a naturally powerful energy boost unlike any other supplement on the market. Although it is natural, don't let that fool you… its extremely powerful ingredients will help provide you with the energy and endurance you need to meet the demands of your grueling workout. It will nutritionally support a sustained vascular pump and improved sense of well being hours after you work out!

Even more about Natural Force Raw Tea:
Natural Force Raw Tea is designed to increase energy, muscular endurance, mental focus, vascularity, and fat utilization. Unlike conventional pre-workout supplements on the market, Natural Force does not dump processed vitamins, minerals, and lab synthesized compounds into our product. We utilize naturally powerful superfoods, herbs, roots, and fruit extracts to achieve our nutritional goals in a raw, wholesome, and 100% natural way. The principle here is that the body can absorb nutrients from whole food ingredients much better than it can from large quantities of processed ingredients.
NATURAL ENERGY ENDURANCE AND FOCUS:
This part of Natural Force Raw Tea provides the user with natural sources of B-complex vitamins and amino acids from the sources of bee pollen and royal jelly. These B-complex vitamins act as coenzymes that metabolize carbohydrates and fats so that they can be used as energy. The bee pollen and royal jelly also provide amino acids that aid in the production, growth, and protection of muscle cells. The red panax ginseng contains natural chemicals called ginsenosides, which have a stimulatory effect on the body that provides a natural burst of energy. The ginseng in combination with the caffeine contained in guarana seed extract is just enough to provide the user with an energy boost without a comedown or crash. Raw Tea also contains maca root, which in addition to providing more amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, helps to support and restore the adrenal glands, which are responsible for the secretion of adrenaline into the blood stream.
This section of the Raw Tea was specifically designed to provide a variety of sources of powerful antioxidants including, resveratrol, lycopene, quercetin, isoquerciten, vitexin and vitamin C. Contrary to popular belief, arginine is not the only pre-cursor to nitric oxide. The powerful anti-oxidants contained in Raw Tea attack free radicals in the blood stream and induce nitric oxide (N.O.) synthase, which increases vasodilation and blood flow to the muscles in order to create a “pump”, without the use of arginine. Beyond the power of the anti-oxidants, the beet root powder is extremely high in nitrates, which dilate the blood vessels in order to improve blood flow, and ultimately allows the muscles to uptake more oxygen and reduces strain on the heart. The Cinnamon Bark Powder naturally regulates insulin levels and increases the body’s temperature, which induces thermogenesis and causes a warming sensation in the body. This combination of natural vasodilating forces will increase your body’s overall blood flow and vascularity to give you a long lasting overall muscular pump.
NATURAL FAT UTILIZATION:
The two main objectives of working out are to create lean muscle and burn fat. This section of Raw Tea was specifically designed to help the body burn fat by increasing the metabolism and utilization of fat cells as a primary source of energy. Without these thermogenic ingredients the body will be more susceptible to breaking down muscle cells for energy instead of fat cells. The green tea extract helps to increase the body’s metabolic rate, and when taken prior to working out, will increase one’s overall calorie expenditure. The bitter orange extract contains synephrine, which also increases the body’s metabolic rate without putting strain on the heart or negatively effecting blood pressure. The yohimbe bark powder is absorbed by the body as yohimbine, which also helps to utilize fat as a primary source of energy and significantly increase blood flow. This combination of natural fat utilizing plants will increase the body’s fat burning capacity while working out and increase the body’s overall metabolism leading to less fat and more muscle mass.
Frequently Asked Questions:
HOW CAN YOU HAVE A PRE-WORKOUT SUPPLEMENT THAT WORKS WITHOUT THE USE OF CREATINE OR ARGININE?

Natural Force Raw Tea utilizes natural sources of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to give you energy and muscular endurance without the bloating or side effects of creatine.
