Ask the Expert: Frequently Asked Questions

At Genesis PURE, we have an expert team that is dedicated to answering your product and nutrition questions.

Here are the most popular questions from the previous week. You might find a topic related to a question you have.

Q: Is the whey protein in Rebuild whey isolate four-way concentrate? Are the L-leucine valine and L-lysine contributing to the protein count?

A: Yes, the whey protein is a whey isolate. Rebuild has both concentrate and isolate, but mostly concentrate. The ratio is 2:1 concentrate to isolate from whey. It is generally regarded as a high-quality protein due to its amino acid profile and fast absorption rate. Lysine and leucine are two of nine essential amino acids. Both these amino acids play vital roles in protein synthesis and can help promote the recovery and growth of muscle tissue. Rebuild has 20g of protein per serving.

Q: What is the recommended amount of Mila to be taken daily? Is Mila to be taken one or two times per day. If two times, what is the recommended amount?

A: You can take Mila up to three times a day, as it is a food. We recommend adding one scoop of Mila to your favorite beverages, cereal, yogurt, salads, cereals, smoothies, and recipes. Did you know that chia seeds can absorb up to 10 times their weight? This makes them great as thickeners in sauces, puddings, dips, and spreads. You can replace ¼ of the oil or 1 egg in your recipes. Simply add ½ scoop Mila to 3 tablespoons water and allow to sit for 15 minutes before using. As a versatile ingredient with a mild flavor, Mila can be incorporated into your favorite recipes. Mila pairs nicely with most our products; combine Mila with GPS Hydrate and Greens for an afternoon pick-me-up!

Q: My wife began using the Rally 28 products about a week ago.  She desires to have better overall health and help get a jump-start to losing weight.  She has had problems with sleep.  Are there any ingredients that will contribute to her sleep issues?  What would be a length of time that a person should drink a shake prior to wanting to fall asleep?

A: 360 Complete Shake does contain caffeine (about 35mg per serving), so we recommend enjoying it in the morning and/or afternoon. Caffeine affects everyone differently and can interfere with sleep. Metabolic ONE also contains caffeine from natural sources (88mg per 3 capsules). It too should be taken earlier in the day and you may choose to reduce the number of capsules from 3 to 2 capsules each time used.  If sleeplessness persists, you can drop it down to 1 capsule twice daily.  This dose is not ideal, but some is better than none for boosting metabolism and energy.  Our new CalciuMK+ is a liquid, non-dairy formula that offers Rapid Delivery of calcium, magnesium and vitamin K2, PLUS vitamins D, A, C and E and essential trace minerals. The magnesium helps relax muscles for restful sleep. Aromatically, lavender essential oil has been shown to relieve tension and support well-being, especially at night.  Additionally, topical application of Lavender essential oil with a carrier oil may promote relaxation. Our Ease8 essential oil blend contains Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Cypress, Wintergreen, Lavender, Blue tansy, Blue Chamomile and Helichrysum and is a relaxing aroma.
