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

Q: Do any of your products contain vitamin D?

A: Daily Build contains 100% DV of vitamin D3. CalciuMK+ contains 150% DV of vitamin D3. Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, has several important functions. It works with calcium to promote healthy bones. It also facilitates normal immune system function.

Q: Is there an ingredient in GoYin that is stimulating?

A: The ingredients in GoYin are not known to be stimulating. There are botanical ingredients that together help support the body’s ability to better handle stress. Most would describe the effects of GoYin as having a calming rather than a stimulating effect. However, everyone’s biochemistry is different and not everyone will react the same.

Q: Does the flash pasteurization process that the superfruit juices go through harm the phytonutrients?

A: Although the levels of certain nutrients in Superfruits may decrease with pasteurization, the final product retains most of the original nutritional value. The idea behind flash pasteurization is to expose the juices to a higher temperature for a very short period of time (i.e. seconds). Other juices sold in the market place may choose to kettle pasteurize. While this process also kills harmful bacteria and microorganisms, a good portion of beneficial nutrients are destroyed, because this form of pasteurization takes several minutes (usually 30 min.). After you open pasteurized juice, it may lose nutritional value due to exposure to light and the air. To optimize nutritional value, store pasteurized juice in the container in which it came. Superfruits are still all natural as we are not altering or adding any ingredients.

Q: Does our Silver have colloidal in it?

A: PURE’s silver technology has taken colloidal silver and has turned it into the next generation of colloidal silver. Our Silver product incorporates a patented manufacturing technology to create an advanced nano-silver solution. Our Silver is easily absorbed and highly stable even outside of a glass container. It is also very safe, because unlike other silver products, it does not build up in the body. Research has shown it is excreted from the body within 24 hours making it a highly safe and effective way to gain the benefits of using Silver.

Q: Can you suggest recommendations on products that produce collagen?

A: MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), the main ingredient in Organic Sulfur, has been shown to support healthy joint function and mobility. How exactly MSM works is not known, but preclinical studies suggest it works by balancing inflammatory mediators. Some research also suggests the sulfur found in MSM can be incorporated into the connective tissue of the joints helping to maintain collagen integrity. Most published research on the benefits of MSM have used as much as 3g taken twice daily (6g/day total). To achieve this amount use 2 scoops daily by using one scoop in the morning and another in the evening, or take 6 capsules daily (3 in the morning and 3 in the evening).

Q: What product(s) help with hair growth?

A: PURE has not created a specific supplement for the benefit of maintaining healthy hair and growth; however, there are some essential vitamins, which may support normal, healthy hair. The B vitamin biotin, for example is often suggested for the benefit of the hair, skin, and nails. A lack of adequate biotin in the diet has been linked to minimized hair growth. Some case reports and a couple of smaller studies have shown an improvement in healthier-looking hair through the use of biotin supplementation. Daily Build liquid provides 300mcg (1000% DV) of biotin. While not the primary function of Organic Sulfur (MSM), sulfur is an important component of collagen production. Collagen also plays a role maintaining normal hair growth. Two smaller, preliminary studies have shown improvements in healthier-looking hair through the supplementation of MSM. Organic Sulfur may help support the maintenance of healthy hair.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
