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

Q: Which products do not contain stevia?
A: All capsules, GoYin and all superfruit juices do not contain stevia. Ingredients in products by PURE can be found on each product label.

Q: Does Probiotic need to be refrigerated?
A: No, it is not necessary to refrigerate Probiotic.  The probiotic strains in Probiotic remain shelf stable and active without refrigeration.

Q: Is it okay to consume both HealthTrim® Cleanse and Daily Detox at the same time?
A: Yes, these products can be taken together. Or you can use Daily Detox as a natural bridge between HealthTrim Cleanse cycles.

Q: I had an allergic reaction to sulfa a year ago. Does this mean I will have a reaction to Organic Sulfur?
A: Sulfa is a type of pharmaceutical drug that contains sulfonamides. Sulfonamides are compounds that contain nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and the sulfur they take their name from. Sulfur is a chemical that is extremely small and unlikely to cause allergic reactions on its own, unlike sulfonamides. MSM has been used as a dietary supplement for years with no reports of intolerance or allergic reaction.

Q: Does PURE have a product to help with unhealthy gums?
A: Unhealthy gums may be the result of a microbial infection or a lack of vitamins. We suggest taking Silver every day and taking Daily Build for nutritive support. Please note that products by PURE are nutritional supplements and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.*

Q: The labels on Goji, GoYin, Mangosteen and Noni state they contain sugar; however, the product information says they contain no sugar.
A: Superfruits naturally contain sugar which is what you see on the label; however, these products contain no added sugars.

Q: It was suggested that consumption of Probiotic be stopped while taking antibiotics. Why?
A: You can take Probiotic on the same day you start taking an antibiotic, but not at the same time. A quick rule of thumb is to take Probiotic two hours before or two hours after taking your antibiotic. This will give sufficient time for the antibiotic to work while not killing off the beneficial bacteria.

Q: Why doesn’t Daily Build contain iron? And, does calcium help your body retain and use iron?
A: Iron is an active oxidation reduction metal and when it’s in a complex product, it will actively react with other ingredients. This may cause the product to be unstable. Calcium will inhibit iron absorption so we don’t suggest consuming it with iron.

Q: Is there anything in GPS Hydrate that is stimulating?
A: GPS Hydrate contains adaptogens that might give someone more energy. Taking it around noon may provide enough energy to get you through the afternoon, yet not disturb your sleep.

Q: Which products contain BCAAs and how much?
A: BCAA is an abbreviation for branched chain amino acid. It includes three amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine. Please check the product label for these ingredients. GPS products that contain BCAAs include GPS Rebuild (from protein sources and leucine 1838mg, isoleucine 1115mg, valine 1070mg), GPS Circulate (Leucine 500mg, Isoleucine 250mg, Valine 250mg per serving of 15g) and GPS Energize (leucine 300mg, isoleucine 150mg and valine 150mg per serving of 10g).

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

Q: Does Probiotic contain yeast?  A: Probiotic is a product that contains seven strains of good bacteria essential to our health. It does not contain yeast.

Q: My sister is really interested in your products for her family. However, she has an allergy to apples. Occasional exposure has not caused a reaction but she’s wondering about the amount in Daily Build and GoYin A: People who are allergic to pollen might be allergic to some raw fruits including apples. The body mistakenly recognizes the protein in pollen as fruits.  Also, some people have an allergy to apples but are not allergic to apple juice.  Daily Build and GoYin are wonderful liquid supplements. The apple juice they contain is different from raw apple, and the amount is minimal.

Q: Is there any wheat in any of the products?  A: We do not use wheat in our products.

Q: Where does the energy in Greens come from?  A: Greens contains many plants that provide plenty of nutrients and adaptogens for energy and body metabolism.  It also contains antioxidants that help the body deal with daily stress and environmental contamination.

Q: Are there any enzymes in the Daily Build?  A: Daily Build does not contain enzymes.
