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

Q: If I’m not going to use my Noni within 30 days, can I freeze it into 1 oz. cubes and use it as needed?

A: You can certainly freeze Noni, or any other superfruit juice, and use as ice cubes. If your bottle is unopened, it is good for two years. If it is opened and has been out of the refrigerator overnight, it is ok to consume. Superfruit juices should be refrigerated and consumed within 30 days. This is the furthest date we still guarantee it to be safe and effective.

Q: Daily Build capsules have green tea leaf extract in the ingredients. Can you please tell me how many milligrams of caffeine this adds?

A: The Daily Build formula is not intended to provide any added caffeine. While it does contain a green leaf extract, this extract is standardized to provide antioxidant polyphenols and not caffeine. Based on the green tea extract used in Daily Build and the possible amount of naturally-occurring caffeine, the amount would be range somewhere between 0-5 mg per serving.

Q: When it comes to athletes, are there ingredients in our GPS line that will give a false positive on drug tests?

A: Our products, including the GPS line, are made under the strict quality guidelines of the Food and Drug Administration’s current good manufacturing practices (GMPs). GMPs have been established to ensure the safety of dietary supplements. The GPS products are manufactured in an NSF GMP registered facility. A primary issue with unintended athlete doping from dietary supplements occurs as a result of companies selling products not produced in a facility that strictly follows FDA GMPs. All of our products are formulated to not contain any banned substances; however, some herbal metabolites naturally found in Rhodiola have been known to cause issues when consumed in large quantities. Rhodiola is found in both GPS Hydrate and Adapt. When consumed in normal recommended amounts, these products are not likely to cause an issue.  On the NCAA banned list believe it or not is caffeine, which is found in GPS Energize (110 mg per serving).  If someone were to drink 3 or 4 servings of GPS Energize prior to a random drug test, it would likely pose a problem for the athlete. PURE has been selling the GPS products for several years and the company has had no known issues for competitive athletes and drug testing.

Q: I experienced severe diarrhea after starting Capsule Cleanse. Is this normal?

A: Everyone’s body will react differently when introducing a HealthTrim Cleanse product to their daily regimen. Some individuals will be more sensitive than others to the primary ingredient cascara that is found in both the liquid and capsule forms of Cleanse. The main purpose of these products is to get the digestive tract moving and eliminating; however, persistent diarrhea is definitely a problem. These products are intended to be used on a cyclical basis (i.e. for no more than 7 to 10 days) to help the body do its job of eliminating toxins through waste. We recommend discontinuing Cleanse to see if the problem goes away. If it does, slowly reintroduce the product. It is important to start at the smallest possible dose.  Some individuals may need up to 8 capsules to get their digestive tract moving while others may only need 1 capsule. The same is true for the Cleanse in liquid form. You may need to use fewer drops than the recommended dropper full. If diarrhea is not alleviated with discontinuing the product, or worsens, contact a healthcare provider to help determine the cause.
