Q: How many ENERGY can you drink daily?

A: The Mayo Clinic defines moderate daily caffeine intake as 400 mg among healthy adults. This is approximately three servings of ENERGY daily. If you experience irritability, restlessness, anxiety, sleep issues, or irregular heart rhythms, be sure to speak with your doctor about healthy caffeine intake.

Q: What is the purpose of using xanthan gum in GoYin and other products?

A: Xanthan gum is a plant-based material created by mixing simple carbohydrates with bacteria. It is used to help thicken, emulsify, and increase viscosity of liquids. It also helps create a more creamy texture. Typically corn or sugar beets are used to create xanthan gum.

Q: Can you give me a list of your products that provide high protein/low carbohydrate nutrition?

A: Generally speaking, a low-carbohydrate diet (not ketogenic diet 20-50g) consists of less than 130g of carbohydrate (CHO) a day. As a meal replacement shake, 360 Complete Shake incorporates whey and pea proteins (20g per serving – high protein), as well as a unique potato extract and fiber blend that helps the body control feelings of hunger. 360 Complete Shake offers a combination of vitamins and minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber. One serving provides 19g of CHO, which includes 11g of fiber for a total of 8g of net carbs. Every serving of Mila packs three grams of protein-rich, heart-healthy omega-3s. In comparison, one half a fillet of salmon contains 4g of omega-3s. Mila is high in calcium and magnesium which contribute to bone health.

Q: Do you have any recommendations on how to travel by plane with the Superfruit juices and/or CalciuMK+?

A: Since these are liquids, they still adhere to the 3-1-1 rule: containers must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less; stored in a 1 quart/liter zip-top bag; 1 zip-top bag per person, and placed in the screening bin. The final decision rests with TSA on whether to allow these items on the plane.

Q: What products do you suggest are nutritionally good for young children to take?

A: Mila is a great product for the whole family, including kids. It offers plant-based protein and fiber, with no gluten, trans fats, or sugar. Overall, use of our dietary supplements is recommended for anyone over the age of 18 years. The nutritional needs of children during growth and maturation are different from those of adults. Please consult your doctor about appropriate supplements for people younger than 18 years of age.

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

Q: My husband has been on heartburn medication. Would any of your products help him?

A: Magnesium and calcium are effective acid neutralizers and have been shown to help to eliminate heartburn and acid reflux. Our CalciuMK+ is a delicious, liquid non-dairy formula offering the Rapid Delivery of calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, E, and K2. Other steps your husband can take are not going to bed with a full stomach, eating smaller portions, eating slowly, and avoiding foods like onions, peppermint, chocolate, caffeine, citrus fruits, tomatoes and spicy foods. There are also products to avoid. In some individuals, GoYin may cause heartburn due to the fruit juices and citrus in the product. Some individuals may also experience heartburn with Organic Sulfur; consuming Organic Sulfur with a meal may help reduce this. Some studies have suggested that nightshade fruits like the goji berry may cause heartburn among some individuals.

Q: I was contemplating adding Metabolic ONE capsules to my Autoship, but I need to know how much caffeine is in each capsule and what the source of caffeine is.

A: Metabolic ONE contains natural sources of caffeine (88mg per 3 capsules) from guarana berries and yerba mate. It also contains green tea catechins and bitter orange extract (synephrine), which are known to boost the metabolism.

Q: Why would Organic Sulfur not be certified when it says organic on the label?

A: First, PURE does its best to use only organic, wild-crafted or cultivated without chemical, non-GMO ingredients. Methylsulphonylmethane (MSM) is a an organic sulfur compound found in all living plant and animal tissues. This form of sulfur is 100% organic; however, the term organic does not specifically refer to farming practices utilized in the production process of organic sulfur. While it may seem confusing, “organic sulfur” is the actual technical term for our MSM compound. Unlike sulfur oxide, organic sulfur is a food grade form of sulfur that is absolutely necessary beneficial for proper health and well-being. MSM (organic) sulfur works in the body by supporting the connective tissues of tendons, muscles and ligaments. Furthermore, organic sulfur, a naturally-occurring component of (MSM), is an essential mineral which helps cell oxygenation and detoxification.

Q: At what age can a young man begin to take Daily Build? What is the recommended dosage ?

A: Use of our dietary supplements, including Daily Build, is recommended for anyone over the age of 18 years. You may note that the nutritional needs of children during growth and maturation are different from those of adults. Please consult your doctor about appropriate supplements for people younger than 18 years of age.

Q: What products help with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

A: The products are intended to supplement a healthy diet. The products are not formulated for the treatment of specific health conditions, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  Before using products we recommend you consult with your healthcare provider to determine whether or not they are okay to be used in your specific situation.  Some research suggests probiotics may help in maintaining healthy gut flora, including in persons with IBS. By introducing healthy bacteria like those found in Probiotic, digestive tract function may be improved. Probiotic provides good bacteria the gut needs to digest foods properly.  Mila is another product, which might be helpful.  Some but not all individuals with IBS need to increase their consumption of dietary fiber. The soluble fiber contained in Mila (chia seeds) may be effective in helping to improve regularity and elimination. In general, fiber helps promote satiety and may offer relief from occasional constipation; however, it is also important to increase intake of fluids at the same time. Drink plenty of water when increasing your intake of fiber. According to the USDA, chia seeds contain a significantly higher percentage of fiber than corn, rice, oats, wheat, or barley. We strongly recommend discussing your choices with your healthcare provider to make sure they are appropriate. If your healthcare provider has asked you to increase your fiber intake, we suggest introducing Mila to your diet slowly. Begin with 1 tablespoon for the first couple of days to see how it works for you. Increase to 2 tablespoons daily if you are able to tolerate the increased amount of fiber in your diet. Please remember, our products do not treat, cure or prevent any disease, including irritable bowel syndrome.

Q: Which product provides the body’s daily requirement of vitamin B12?

A: Daily Build has an excellent blend of B vitamins, including vitamin B12. Daily Build contains 500mcg of vitamin B12.  This is 8333% of the recommended Daily Value (DV). GoYin also contains 11.8mcg vitamin B12 (200% DV). A third option for obtaining the body’s daily requirement of this vitamin is Energy. One serving of this product delivers 34mcg (567% DV) of vitamin B12.

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: How much EPA, DHA, and DPA are in Mila?

A: EPA, DHA and DPA are all omega-3 fatty acids. Mila contains 4 grams of essential fatty acids, 3 grams of omega-3 and 1 gram of omega-6. The type of omega-3 fatty acid in Mila is ALA or alpha-linolenic acid. The body converts ALA into EPA, DHA, and DPA, so technically Mila does not actually contain these fatty acids. Everyone’s ability to convert ALA to EPA, DHA, and DPA will vary, so it is difficult to say how much of each you will actually get from consuming it.

Q: Does your GPS Energize contain dairy?

A: No, GPS Energize does not contain milk.

Q: What is the best way to take supplements and what should the timing be between each?

A: We are currently working on a helpful guide on when to take our supplements. Please check online on the Recommended Use page for each product in question. For products that contain caffeine, including Metabolic ONE, Green Coffee Bean, PURE Café, we suggest not taking them together as you don’t want to consume too much caffeine at once.

Q: Do any of your products contain lutein, and if so, what amount?

A: Yes, our Daily Build contains lutein. One serving contains 2mg of lutein which is about the same amount you would find in a cup of cooked broccoli, sweet corn, Brussels sprouts, or about a 1/2 cup of cooked green peas or summer squash.

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

Q: I have had customers that were taking the CardioClean and it was helping to keep their blood sugars down. Now that it is discontinued, what products are you recommending that l suggest they take?

A: First, the Genesis PURE products are not intended for the purpose of treating health conditions like diabetes. If an individual has diabetes, we recommend you advise your clients to consult with their physician to determine whether or not our products are right for them. Our products are intended to provide nutritional support to an otherwise healthy diet.  It is interesting that you found some success with your clients using CardioClean to help them maintain healthy blood sugar levels. While not their primary purpose for being in CardioClean, there were some ingredients in the product that have been shown in preliminary research to help maintain healthy blood sugars levels already in the normal range. One of these ingredients was noni juice. Both animal research and preliminary clinical studies have shown noni juice appears to have some promise in this area, so you could suggest the use of the Noni superfruit juice in its place. Another product with some research supporting healthy blood sugar maintenance is HealthTrim Green Coffee Bean.  Interestingly, green coffee bean has also been shown to maintain healthy blood pressure levels as well. At this time, we do not have any immediate plans to replace CardioClean, but we are carefully monitoring this area and will look at other possibilities in the future.  CardioClean contained B vitamins and folate as well as an antioxidant blend, among other ingredients. Our Daily Build product, a multivitamin with superfruits, greens, sea vegetables, and botanicals, is an excellent source of these ingredients. Mila and HealthTrim 360 Complete Shakes are good sources of fiber, which has been shown to support blood sugar maintenance.

Q: Does the GPS Rebuild contain glutamine?

A: Glutamine is an amino acid that plays a key role in protein metabolism and new muscle growth. When we are stressed, the body’s demand for glutamine increases. Our Recovery product was created to be used after your workout. The main ingredient is creatine,  30,000 mg, which increases the body’s ability to produce energy rapidly. There is L-glutamine in our Pro-Arginine and E2 products. Pro-Arginine was created to be taken before your workout to help support growth hormone release, nitric oxide production, muscle energetics, and superior muscle growth. Our E2 product was created to be taken before your workout to deliver nutritive support while providing energy and mental clarity. We’ve revamped our entire GPS line giving it an easier, systematic approach to working out. New action-oriented names help you identify the proper function of each product and sleek new packaging is color-coded to represent the best time to consume the products for an amplified workout. We hope you try all the products in the GPS line.

Q: Do the HealthTrim 360 Complete Shakes have gluten in them? Do they have any stimulants that effect blood pressure?

A: While many Genesis PURE products have no gluten-containing ingredients, they may be processed in facilities that also process gluten. Therefore, some cross contamination may occur. 360 Complete Shake contains barley grass which does not contain gluten; however, barley is an ingredient that may have come in contact with other gluten-containing grains and are at a high risk for cross contamination. Other Genesis PURE products may be made on machinery that also process gluten-containing ingredients. If you are extremely sensitive to even the smallest amount of gluten, we caution against consuming Genesis PURE products. The potential for cross-contact with other gluten containing grains and ingredients is relatively low, but if you have celiac disease or a severe gluten intolerance, we recommend consulting with your physician before using Genesis PURE products. 360 Complete Shake does contain 33mg guarana, a natural caffeine-based stimulant. Guarana comes from plants in South America. It’s more dense in caffeine than coffee beans. The American Dietetic Association suggests no more than 200-300 mgs of caffeine a day, which is equal to not more than 2-3 cups of coffee a day. Studies suggest that people with high blood pressure limit their caffeine intake to 200 mg (two six-ounce cups of coffee) per day or less.

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.

Q: In the Coral Calcium supplement, is is calcium citrate or calcium carbonate?

Calcium citrate is the naturally occurring calcium salt of citric acid. It is the product of the fermentation process used to produce citric acid.
