Q: Can PURE Perk be taken once a day, every day and for an extended time?
A: We recommend taking it once a day but it can safely be taken up to twice a day. The second serving should be taken four hours after the first serving, as the label suggests. Do not take the product within four hours before bedtime, and do not exceed two servings per day.

Q: How many times a day can you take GPS Circulate?
A: It can be taken 30 minutes before exercise. If desired, it may be taken at bedtime with GPS Reset. For the average, healthy person, we do not recommend more than two servings a day. For an athlete who heavily trains, three times a day would be fine as well. Higher amounts of L-arginine and L-citrulline might cause osmotic diarrhea. Taken at separate times throughout the day would negate this effect. GPS Circulate contains vitamins and amino acids. L-arginine is an amino acid used to improve athletic capacity, muscle growth, sexual performance and cardiovascular function. It also stimulates the immune system.*

Q: Can I take products by PURE together or must I use them individually? Which products are compatible, and which are not?
A: Many of products by PURE can be taken together. We do not suggest taking products containing caffeine together, or before bed time.  You can find recommended use on each label and online to identify which products are recommended at what time throughout the day and with/without food.

Q: What is the  difference between Organic Sulfur and the sulfur that causes some people an allergic reaction?
A: Sulfur is one of the most abundant elements in the human body and is essential to life. Sulfur is found in many foods that we eat, including fish, poultry, eggs, milk, onions, garlic and cabbage. When people say they are allergic to sulfur, they mean that they’re either sensitive to sulfites, which are preservatives found in red wines and some foods, or that they are allergic to sulfonamides, found in sulfa antibiotic drugs. Sulfites and sulfonamides, even though they sound like sulfur, are very different and have unrelated mechanisms of action. It is safe to use MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), the only ingredient in Organic Sulfur. This chemical is in animals, humans and many plants. When a person says they have a sulfa allergy or sulfite sensitivity.

Q: We noticed a change in taste to the Liquid Cleanse. Was there a formula change?
A: The herbs used in Cleanse are from naturally growing plants. The herbs may be harvested during different seasons and may come from different areas. These can cause a variation in taste. The formula has not changed.

Q: Can products by PURE cause a false positive on a 10-panel drug test?
A: Absolutely not. Our weight loss products do not contain ingredients that would cause false positive results on drug tests. Our GPS line of products (GPS Hydrate, GPS Energize, GPS Circulate, GPS Rebuild and GPS Reset) have been tested and are Informed-Sport Certified.

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

Q: How long will a PURE Enrollment Pack last?
A: Enrollment packs come in two sizes. The bigger packs contain almost all the products and the small packs also have a large variety. The enrollment packs are designed for people to who want to build their business and to help people become familiar with the products.  It is hard to tell how long the products in a pack will last.  Most of the products are a monthly supply and some of the products are about half of a month’s supply.  Some people choose to not take all of the products together.  Others may choose to share the products. Generally, we expect people will finish most of the products within 6 months.

Q: Are any of your products recommended for someone who wants to gain weight?
A: To increase weight, one should take a good nutritional supplement that has essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. A high-quality protein supplement, antioxidants and bioactive compounds should all be a part of the diet. We suggest taking 360 Complete Shake, GPS Energize, Daily Build, GoYin and Acai superfruit.

Q: What products should I take while I’m on a ketogenic diet?
A: We suggest taking 360 Complete Shake as a source of high protein, vitamins and minerals. It contains 21g protein, 11g fiber and low (50g) carbohydrates per serving.

Q: Do any of the products contain strawberry?
A: ENERGY – Watermelon contains strawberry.

Q: Can SleepTrim and CalciuMK+ be taken at the same time since they both benefit sleep?
A: Yes, these products can be taken together. However, they have different mechanisms of working in the body. For best results, we suggest taking SleepTrim with dinner and CalciuMK+ after dinner.

Q: What products should be taken after the 28-Day Detox?
A: We suggest taking Daily Build, GoYin, CalciuMK+, Probiotic and Immune6. These products are basic supplements for daily use. You may take the superfruits, Organic Sulfur, Mila and the GPS line for your more targeted health needs.

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

Q: How many Organic Sulfur capsules are equal to one scoop of Organic Sulfur?
A: Three capsules (1 g x 3 = 3 g) equals 1 scoop of Organic Sulfur (3 g). The Recommended Use on the label suggests 3 capsules as one serving.

Q: Is it possible to eat too much Mila?
A: Mila is a high-quality, 100% natural food. One serving contains 5 grams of dietary fiber, which helps with intestinal regularity, cardiovascular health and blood sugar maintenance. Consuming too much fiber, especially if your body is not used to it, can cause gastrointestinal upset. If you experience GI upset, take less than the recommended 2 Tablespoons and build up to this amount as your body adjusts to an increased intake of fiber. Drink plenty of water when taking Mila. The recommended daily amount of fiber is 25 grams.*

Q: What is the source of the natural vanilla bean flavoring in Greens?
A: Natural vanilla originates from Madagascar, Indonesia and Mexico.  Vanilla beans are extracted, purified and made in the U.S.

Q: What are the natural flavors and colors that are used in products by PURE?
A: Natural flavors and colors are from vegetables, fruits and other natural sources such as vanilla and cacao beans.

Q: Which products by PURE contain vitamin D?
A: Daily Build has 800 IU of vitamin D3, the highest amount. CalciuMK+ has 600 IU. Immune6 and GPS Reset have 500 IU. 360 Complete Shake has 200 IU. GPS Rebuild Chocolate has 40 IU of D3.  Please check the product labels for ingredients and amounts.

Q: Which products help support circulation and blood flow?
A: Typically, Goji has been used to support circulation. GPS Circulate provides amino acids like L-arginine and L-citruline, which help promote the production of nitric oxide N.O. in the body. N.O. helps promote circulation and blood flow.*

Q: Do you use any synthetic ingredients in your “natural flavors”?
A: There are no synthetic ingredients in our natural sweeteners and natural flavors.

Q: What is glucose polymer derived from and is it something that is good for the body?
A: Glucose polymers are an important source of carbohydrates in dietary supplements. Glucose polymers are large molecules composed of many glucose molecules. They provide more energy at a given osmolarity and are absorbed at a faster rate than glucose alone. Glucose polymers also improve the consistency of beverages made from powdered mixes. Glucose polymers are responsible for the creamy texture in products like ENERGY, 360 Complete Shake and PURE Café.

Q: Are any products by PURE tested on animals?
A:  None of the products by PURE are tested on animals.

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).

The apple juice they contain is different from raw apple, and the amount is minimal.
