Ingredient Spotlight: MSM

When you hear the word sulfur, you might think of a yellow substance, the smell of rotten eggs or a hot spring. That distinctive smell is from sulfur, or sulfur dioxide, a form of sulfur often used in metallurgy, rubber vulcanization, and petroleum refining. It is toxic to the body.

Methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM), on the other hand, is an organic form of sulfur that can be safely digested and absorbed by the body. It is stored in the muscles, skin, bones, nails and hair; however, our body cannot make it. We must get it from food (found naturally in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meat, poultry, and eggs), or supplements.

MSM is an organic, food-grade sulfur found in all plant and animal tissues. It is white and odorless. It is both a mineral and an element found naturally in the protein of plants, animals and humans. It is necessary for many important functions in the body.*

Organic Sulfur by PURE

Our supplement consists of 99.9% pure distilled MSM sourced in North America, has no added fillers, binders, excipients, artificial ingredients, or flow agents. It is non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

“Research shows that Organic Sulfur can help balance inflammatory mediators in the body. When there is imbalance, we are going to have issues,” said Darin Blackhurst, PURE Director of Research and Development and Quality. “Clinical studies show that we are using the right amount in our product, 6 grams a day. The people in the study who took the product actually had an improvement in joint mobility and flexibility.”3

Benefits of MSM:

  • Improves flexibility and mobility by promoting joint function and health.*
  • Can alleviate discomfort that may follow challenging exercise sessions.*
  • Assists with the elimination of cell-damaging free radicals in the body.*
  • Helps promote healthy skin, hair, and nails.*

Ways to take Organic Sulfur

Organic Sulfur is available in both capsule and powder form. Some people may have trouble stomaching the bitter taste of the powder. To make it more palatable, you may want to mix it with GPS Hydrate,  GoYin or even coffee. Or, add a light juice or sweetener to offset the bitterness. The more water you add, the less bitter the taste. Take three capsules twice daily, preferably in the morning and the evening, on an empty stomach; or mix one level teaspoon into warm water or drink of your choice to dissolve crystals and consume.

Is organic sulfur an ingredient in sulfa pharmaceutical drugs?

No. Organic sulfur is a nutrient, a necessary part of natural chemical processes in the body. Sulfa based drugs or sulfites are forms of inorganic sulfur. Sulfa drugs are synthetic; they do not occur naturally. They are used as antibiotics, which in some people cause allergic reactions.3

PURE featured in Direct Selling News

PURE was highly praised in the January edition of Direct Selling News for its steady growth in both sales force and revenue in the past two years. This edition is titled, “What you focus on grows”, which so aptly describes the transformation PURE has experienced in just a short amount of time.

The article, “A Promising Path for PURE”, recaps PURE’s growth from the creation of GoYin to the formation of PURE. Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, helped start GoYin several years ago and it eventually merged with another company in 2008, a company founded by Dae Geun Jung, now Founder and Chairman of the Board for PURE. PURE then underwent a rebrand in 2017 to become PURE: People United Reaching Everyone.

In the article, Daren Hogge refers to the HI-ACT principles as how he wants to build the company and how he wants its IBOs to build their businesses. HI-ACT is an acronym for the principles of Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, Commitment and Trustworthiness.

“We put in some founding principles that were pillars,” Daren explains. “One of them was the philosophy of our products that have come to life through the CORE4 — to cleanse the body, balance the body, build the body and provide focus for the body. All the products we developed, we created to make sure they fit into those categories and help to deliver Whole Health. The other principles we came up with are what I term the HI-ACT.”

The article continues to talk about how we’ve modernized our products to make them more mainstream with what consumers see in the marketplace — from the redesign of the GoYin bottle for our tenth anniversary celebration to bolder ENERGY packaging. And just recently, our GPS performance line was recognized by Informed Sports Certification as being safe for use by professional, collegiate and Olympic athletes.

Other notable recognition:

  • Strong leadership in its Independent Business Owners (IBOs)
  • 7-Day and 28-Day Detox Programs
  • CORE4 products featured in the 2018 Physicians’ Desk Reference
  • PURE Rank Bonus may be one of the most lucrative in the industry
  • Partnership with Disabled American Veterans (DAV)
  • Global presence with new markets in Western Africa and Thailand
  • Partnership with Gray Gaulding, PURE IBO and NASCAR driver

Going forward, Daren’s strategy is to continue to look for strong leaders who share the company’s HI-ACT principles and want to share them with like-minded individuals. “I believe that we have only scratched the surface here in the U.S.,” adds Daren. “I think we’ll see quadruple growth over the next few years from the projections we set two years ago — and we’ve exceeded — and where we’re headed over the next four years.”

PURE will keep the momentum going continuing their commitment to deliver Whole Health with high-quality products for physical health, opportunity for financial health, relationships for personal health and opportunities for social impact for philanthropic health.

Meet IBOs Ron and Jill Grieve

Ron and Jill started their journey with PURE in September of 2017. They saw the opportunity as a way to improve their family’s health and their finances. They envisioned a way to take some of the pressure off Ron who was the sole income earner, while allowing Jill to homeschool their two boys.

After taking products by PURE, they began to experience more energy and realized how good they felt. They were more than excited! While consuming the products and making healthy lifestyle choices, Jill lost 15 pounds after one month and a total of 30 pounds by the end of 3 months, which she has maintained for over a year.* This followed an ischemic stroke Jill suffered in 2014, when she was only 38.   

Jill participated and completed PURE’s Detox program and is a proud member of Team28.  She attributes the community of support and the Detox Guide as  invaluable components to her long-term success.

By simply introducing others to PURE’s community and opportunity, and by helping them get started on their health journey, the Grieves are now earning a residual income!

“It is turning out to be everything we had hoped for! Deciding to get started with PURE: People United Reaching Everyone has truly been one of the best decisions for our family! My biggest piece of advice to anyone wanting to become part of this family is to always stay positive, stay connected with your leaders who have gone before you, and stay focused! Having a no-quit attitude is important, regardless of what you are looking to achieve!”

When asked what her favorite product by PURE is, Jill replied, “I love it all but I will say that one time we ran out of Daily Build (liquid) and noticed a big difference in how we felt. We won’t let that happen again!”

Meet Lynn and Sherry Pippen, PURE IBOs

Lynn and Sherry Pippen joined PURE in 2015 after Lynn was approached by a dear friend whom he had served with in the military.

Lynn is a Platinum Director with PURE and a retired U.S. Army Colonel. Sherry is a general dentist and owner of Oak Lane Family Dental Clinic in Mississippi.

The Pippen’s weren’t interested in taking on another business venture, but they saw value in the PURE business. They chose to invest in the company should they decide later to pursue a business.

Physical fitness has always been a big part of their lives. Lynn maintained a high level of physical activity during his tenure in the Army and continued this into his retirement and second career.  However, he had compounded problems with his shoulder, back and knees due to various athletic- and service-related injuries. With the advice of his orthopedic physician, he gave up his love for long-distance running.

Lynn shared his health issues with his new PURE family who then shared the products with him. Lynn started taking the products and subsequently changed his lifestyle. He was able to return to jogging after being told that he would never run again. He beat the odds and ended up competing in eight half marathons and two half ironman triathlons.

Sherry and Lynn have both seen spikes in their energy levels. They “turned back the clock” in many ways. With their confidence in products by PURE, they began sharing them with others, through they were not yet consistent with building their business. They came to value and admire the leadership in their upline who encouraged them to attend a PURE event in Dallas, Texas in October 2017.  After meeting the leaders face-to-face and experiencing the sheer “class” of the company, they decided to get serious about their PURE business.

Lynn says, “Our story isn’t a fast-paced, knock-your-socks-off story of growth straight to the top, but Sherry and I love and believe in PURE.  Our advice to IBOs is to remember the value in what PURE offers and to be resilient in the quest for your business goals.  Latch on to your leadership team and allow them to guide you to victory.  Many say that we’re in the health and wellness industry, but Sherry and I would argue that we’re in the business of improving lives.  As long as that continues to be our goal, rank advancements will come. Above all, our prayer is that people will see us as a light for our savior, Jesus Christ, and a beacon of hope for their health and financial needs.  PURE offers us a chance to share compassion with the masses as we’ve never had before.”

Lynn’s favorite products are GoYin and Organic Sulfur; Sherry likes Metabolic ONE.
