You want to go out and party…
But you only have time to workout.
Well, here’s an exercise you can do to accomplish both. We call it The Baby-Maker:
- Grab a pair of 100 lbs dumb-bells.
- Set your feet shoulder-width apart.
- Establish eye-contact with a female gym-member.
- Maintain eye-contact while thrusting your hips the female gym-member’s direction and bicep-curling those 100 lbs dumb-bells.
That’s one rep. Repeat until “successful” or until the cops are called—and if you need a little supplemental assistance, try Beyond RAW RE-TEST: One of GNC’s top muscle-pumping, hip-thrusting T-boosters.
About Beyond RAW RE-TEST
Manufactured by the BIG doggs GNC (ever heard of them?), Beyond RAW RE-TEST is a “HARDCORE ANABOLIC ENHANCER” designed for muscle-pumping, hip-thrusting T-action. But does it execute on this design? Formula notes:
- Tribulus + Fenugreek: Most of the T-boosting power comes from these herbs, in addition to some Vitamin D lovin’.
- Vasodilator Complex: Enhanced circulation is great for all-around health, particularly sexual/athletic health… But we wonder if there’s enough vasodilation here.
- GNC Supp: GNC sees a lot of supps. So when they manufacture a supp themselves, we can’t help but get a little excited.

Beyond RAW RE-TEST cranks libido & bloodflow for sexy gains.
Emphasis on the SEX, because that seems to be the primary goal of this T-booster:
- Enhancing libido & vasodilation for increased sexual functioning, with mild gains in testosterone on the side (maybe).
Not that these sex-enhancers are ineffective at boosting T, but… ya, many of them are pretty ineffective at boosting T—with exception to Vitamin D, which not only kicks off this formula’s Supp Facts, but tops our BIG LIST of T-Boosters for its strong association with T levels.
Not too shabby, GNC. But let’s see what else we’re working with here:
Hardcore Test Amplifier
First things first: Let’s thank the supplement gods (or GNC) for showing the dosages on the ingredients in this “proprietary” blend. If we couldn’t see all of the dosages in this blend, then we wouldn’t be able to criticize how low many of them are past Fenugreek.
- Tribulus & Fenugreek both supply fat doses at 1100 mg & 600 mg, respectively. This is good considering that these are our favorite T-boosters in this blend—although, only Fenugreek boosts T; Tribulus is more sex-enhancer… Actually, Fenugreek is more sex-enhancer, too, but at least Fenugreek increases “free” T action as well.
- Below Tribulus & Fenugreek we’re seeing a major dip in milligrams and an increase in questionable ingredient choices—the only ingredient that really stands out to us is Tongkat Ali, which, like Fenugreek, increases “free” T and
Other ingredients such as DHEA, Antler Horn Powder, & DIM we’d be happier to see left out of this formula. For one, DHEA is a WADA banned substance, thus disallowing the use of Beyond RAW by competitive athletes. For two, DHEA & Antler Horn Powder are largely ineffective at doing really anything for male health. And DIM + I3C might actually diminish T levels according to some research.
These dosages should have been saved for Tongkat Ali so it could be closer to its sex-enhancing friends Tribulus & Fenugreek.
This formula advertises itself strictly as a “Vasodilator” blend, topping itself with classic N.O. boosters such as Agmatine Sulfate & L-Citrulline, but it also manages to notch in a couple estrogen-blockers—Resveratrol & Mushroom Powder.
Again, we’re dealing with dosage issues on almost all of these—especially the ingredients below Agmatine Sulfate (i.e. nearly all of this blend’s ingredients)—but these ingredients aren’t a bad way to top off this formula.
It’s one thing to boost T.
It’s another to boost T, increase circulation, & regulate estrogen.
Beyond RAW RE-TEST has the right idea here, but we do question the effectiveness of this blend due to the low dosages.
If you’re formula requires 5 capsules for a single serving, then you know you’re packing some heavy stuff.
Beyond RAW RE-TEST packs in some heavy stuff… But packing heavy stuff is only a good thing when that “stuff” is, well… good things (Please subscribe to B5 for more Obvious Observations!). Much of Beyond RAW RE-TEST’s “stuff” is unnecessary:
- DHEA, Antler Horn Powder, DIM, I3C—we’ve listed these 3 times now, but they deserve to be pointed out again: Because they’re sucking up dosages that would be better spent on potent T-boosters such as Tongkat Ali, or at least funneled into the Vasodilator Complex—because that shit is a good idea!
The entire Beyond RAW RE-TEST formula is a good idea: Sex-enhancing T-boosters with vasodilators for enhanced athletic/sexual performance. Hell ya, we’ll invest in that.
Unfortunately, compared to other bona fide T-boosters, Beyond RAW RE-TEST fails to execute on anything beyond the Tribulus & Fenugreek duo—whether its due to bad ingredients or low dosages.
If DHEA & Antler Horn have been on your radar, then sure go for it. Otherwise, we recommend these BEST for TEST boosters, many of which also supply Tribulus & Fenugreek (and Tongkat Ali!).
Beyond RAW RE-TEST Benefits
The benefits purported by this T-booster are:
- Supports healthy testosterone levels
- Fuels circulation
- Drives maximum muscularity
Strictly in terms of ingredient choices, Beyond RAW RE-TEST may accomplish these benefits to a degree—namely based on the benefits of Tribulus & Fenugreek. But the ceiling is pretty low on how far Beyond RAW’s benefits will go based on its design flaws.
Who Takes It?
Bonerific Bodybuilders. Lifting doods might be the target demographic of this T-booster, but it’s their Johnsons that are going to be most pleased with this supplement. Perhaps the sexual energy can translate to exercise performance, but most research on these herbs explore them as sex-enhancers.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. Which is surprising considering that Agmatine Sulfate has a bad relationship with diarrhea. On the whole, user reviews of this T-booster are mixed: Many claim it works side-effect free. Others state that it doesn’t nothing beyond granting morning wood for a while.
Morning wood or none, this T-booster seems generally safe.
Beyond RAW RE-TEST Summary

- Poor Design. Many of these ingredients could be scrapped.
- Bad Dosages. Sort of a headscratcher considering the 5 capsule serving size.
- WADA Banned. Some people like DHEA. WADA does not.

Final Word on Beyond RAW RE-TEST
If you manage to nab that “Sale Price,” then we can confidently state that Beyond RAW RE-TEST is worth a try. Not every T-booster works for everyone, and some T-boosters that don’t work for many might work for some. Beyond RAW RE-TEST seems like one of those conditional T-boosters that might help some men, but do nothing for others. At the least, it’s a solid source of libido-boosting Trib + Fenugreek.
