FAQ

ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

  1. Do Pure 21 supplements contain gluten, soy, or allergens? / What does “through a fermentation process” mean?

All supplements are free of gluten free and most major allergens. Do not use a supplement if you have a known hypersensitivity (allergy) to any of the ingredients. While most Pure 21 products don’t contain the majority of common allergens, they are manufactured in facilities that do. Our facilities follow safety guidelines and sterilize equipment between production batches, so cross-contamination is highly unlikely; however we support full transparency, hence why it is noted on the packaging.

All vegan digestive enzyme formulas use food sources including wheat (the most common source), dairy and soy as part of the fermentation process. These food sources are fed to the microorganisms which in turn secrete enzymes to break down the food source so that the organisms can “eat”. The enzymes are so effective that there is very little, if any, of a food source left over afterwards. The enzymes produced by the microorganisms then undergo a purification process that further removes any trace of a food source.

To make sure that we are compliant, we always list any food source used in the fermentation process which represents a required allergen statement by the FDA. All companies that sell enzymes of the same nature as ours are using this same process, but most choose to exclude the allergen statement given there has never been a known reaction to wheat, dairy, or soy in this case. After speaking with some of the experts at the raw material supplier, we felt it was wise to take no chances when it comes to FDA compliance in this matter.

Just as we may get hit with questions from consumers concerned over the wheat allergen on the label, we are just as likely to get hit with questions from very savvy individuals as to why we did not reflect the allergen if we had chosen to leave it off. We much prefer to apologize for being accurate, when most companies choose not to, rather than to apologize for trying to hide something from the consumer.

For someone deathly allergic to wheat, dairy, or soy, even though we feel the product is perfectly safe, we would suggest that person consider using another product that is animal based and does not go through a fermentation process as described.

  1. Is the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge dairy-free?

While the challenge isn’t explicitly dairy-free, we do consider the majority of dairy foods and dairy containing products as unapproved.

  1. Are headaches a normal part of the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge?

Yes. When your body’s used to certain eating habits, changes (even ones that are for the better!) can cause headaches at first. As your body adjusts, the headaches will subside. To keep headaches at bay, make sure you’re eating often and enough and drinking enough water. If all else fails, over-the-counter pain reliver can help. For more information, check out the Tips of the Week section in Week 1 of your guidebook.

  1. If I have a misstep during the program, should I stop the challenge?

Nobody’s perfect and that’s okay. The challenge isn’t all or nothing so forgive yourself for missteps and get back on track! Remember why you started and take that determination into the next day of your challenge.

  1. Can I continue to take other supplements during the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge?

Yes. But, as always, we recommend getting the green light from your healthcare provider.

  1. Can I use sugar-free sweetener? / Can I use healthy sugars?

In our minds, there’s no such thing as a healthy sugar. The key is moderation. If you absolutely can’t do without sweetening up the flavors of your foods or drinks, we recommend sugar-free sweeteners such as stevia, Swerve®, yacon syrup, monk fruit, and erythritol. Barring that, a pinch of regular sugar (yes, only the small amount that fits between your fingers) is usually enough to satisfy.

Swerve® is a trademark of Swerve IP, LLC. Pure Romance is not affiliated with Swerve IP, LLC.

  1. I don’t like water. / I’m having trouble meeting my daily water goal.

We recommend changing up flavors to help. Try adding fresh fruits to your water to jazz things up; try adding them directly or using an infuser bottle for easy clean-up.

  1. Is bright yellow urine normal?

Yes. This can happen due to increased intake of B vitamins from the supplements.

  1. Will I have to cook separate meals for myself and my family?

No! Pure 21 approved recipes are healthy and delicious so you and your family can enjoy the benefits of a healthier diet together.

  1. Are there age recommendations for the challenge?

In general, we do not recommend the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge for anyone under the age of 18. You’re more than welcome to share dinners and/or meals with young family members but no one under 18 should partake or be made to partake in the challenge.

  1. Can I eat at restaurants?

Yes, just remember to make decisions based on the Approved Foods list and rules. Keep in mind that the preparation of certain dishes may introduce ingredients that aren’t explicitly called out on the menu, so ask questions and make substitutions if needed.

  1. Can I continue intermittent fasting?

We don’t recommend intermittent fasting while completing the challenge. One of the main principles is five meals per day to revitalize your metabolism.

  1. How often can I do the challenge?

Since we recommend waiting 6-8 weeks between Pure Start cleanses, please wait at least this long before restarting the full challenge. Most Pure 21 alumni retake the challenge every 6 months or so and stick to what they learned in between while also taking core Pure 21 supplements i.e., Multivitamin, Digestive Enzymes, Whey Protein Isolate, and Daily Probiotic.

  1. Can I purchase the Pure 21 supplements separately?

Yes. To make wellness effortless, we added Pure 21 products to our Subscribe for Deals program! Sign up to save on supplements and get them delivered right to your door.

  1. Is there a maintenance program following the 21-day Challenge?

Our Maintenance Kit allows you to get core supplements all together at a discount. Check out pure21.com for more info. If you’re into automation, you can also get the Maintenance Kit via our Subscribe for Deals replenishment program.

  1. Can I take the challenge if I’ve been diagnosed with medical conditions or if take certain medications? / Can I take the challenge if I’m on thyroid medications or had bariatric surgery?

Some Pure 21 alumni with medical conditions have found success with the challenge. We understand wanting to hit reset on your eating habits, but make sure you’re not going it alone if you have a condition listed below, a different condition not mentioned below, or are taking medications.

This program cannot replace instructions from your healthcare provider. Discuss the program and options for your individual health needs and goals with your provider. Your provider should be aware of all medical conditions you have as well as any medications and supplements you take and/or want to introduce.

In general, we do not recommend beginning the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge if you:

Have a BMI below 20 and/or are underweight</p>

Have an eating disorder, disordered eating habits, and/or a history of either condition

Are pregnant or nursing

Have liver disease, hepatitis, or active cancer

Have diabetes and/or are taking a diabetes medication

  1. Can I take the challenge while pregnant or trying to conceive?

While there is nothing about the Pure 21 program that is in any way provocative for a pregnant person, we don’t generally recommend taking the challenge while pregnant. Pregnancy and surrounding stages can affect individual healthcare needs. If you are pregnant, nursing, or trying to conceive, consult your healthcare provider before starting Pure 21. If approved, you should try the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge only with the supervision of your healthcare provider. This program cannot replace instructions from your healthcare provider.

  1. Do any supplements contain stimulants that could raise heart rate or blood pressure?

Our vanilla Whey Protein Isolate does not contain caffeine. Trace amounts of caffeine (about 1.7 mg) may be found in the chocolate flavored Whey Protein Isolate. For comparison’s sake, an 8 oz. (237 mL) cup of coffee has about 100-150 mg of caffeine.

  1. I have trouble taking pills. Can I still complete the challenge?

Yes. There are alternatives for taking the pills. For example, you may open the capsule and mix it with your desired liquid, just keep in mind that the capsule for many supplements masks the unpleasant taste of any ingredients.

  1. Are Pure 21 supplements all natural?

No. While we incorporate many natural elements in Pure 21 products, we do also rely on synthetics ingredients used in processing so, that’s why we don’t mark Pure 21 supplements as “all natural”.

  1. Are corn products allowed on this program?

Yes.

  1. What should I do if I’m still hungry?

Eat! Yes, you read that right. If you’re hungry in the evening after your 5 meals, add another small meal. If you’re hungry between meals, add snacks. Just make any additions healthy! We recommend a small serving of nuts, fruits with a low level of natural sugar (like strawberries, pears, melon, or red apples), or non-starchy veggies. An extra meal or snack at times won’t ruin your progress! Feeling full and staying on track is always better than being hungry and giving in to cravings.

  1. Is there a specific exercise plan to follow?

While there’s no specific plan, your guidebook has suggestions. If you’re part of our Pure 21 Facebook community, check out posts from others to see what’s working for everyone.

  1. Should I count calories or macros on Pure 21?

There’s no need to do so. Following the basic principles of the program essentially takes care of this for you.

  1. Where is the expanded food list?

Check out our blog at blog.pure21.com to read up. For foods not mentioned on the lists, stick to basic Pure 21 principles and use your best judgement. For quick review:

Weeks 1 & 2
FOODS ALLOWED: white meat (including white fish), whole fruits, and whole vegetables.
FOODS NOT ALLOWED: dairy, grains, refined sugar, processed foods, and alcohol.

Week 3
FOODS ALLOWED: white and red meats (including fish), whole fruits, whole vegetables, and clean, starchy carbs.
FOODS NOT ALLOWED: most grains, refined sugar, processed foods, and alcohol.

  1. The challenge calls for 5 meals per day, what constitutes a meal?

A meal is 1 serving of protein and 1 serving of fruits or vegetables. If this is too much, try a snack or a Whey Protein Isolate shake or smoothie for meals 2 and 4 (typically the meal between breakfast and lunch, and the meal between lunch and dinner).

What’s a serving? Your Pure 21 guidebook makes it easy! To reiterate the info there: aim for 1-2 handfuls of protein and/or carbs and 1 fistful of fruits and/or vegetables every meal. For easy reference, 3-6 oz (85-170 grams) of protein is 1-2 handfuls and 1 cup (226 grams) is a fistful.

FIST = 1 CUP

THUMB = 1 OZ

HANDFUL = 3 OZ

  1. Which supplements are vegan friendly?

Our Digestive Enzymes, Daily Probiotic, and Pure Start supplements are vegan, while our Multivitamin and Whey Protein are neither vegetarian nor vegan. 

  1. Can I take pre-workout supplements during my challenge?

Pre-workout supplements tend to be all about amino acids. Luckily, we’ve already got you covered there. Our Whey Protein Isolate is rich in the branched chain amino acids you’re likely looking for so feel free to mix up a quick shake or smoothie before your workout. If you’re using your protein in other ways and still want to try adding a pre-workout supplement into the mix, make sure to 1. check any labels, 2. watch out for carbs, sugars, and things on the Pure 21 unapproved list, and 3. use your best judgment.

FAQ

WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE

  1. Can I use the Whey Protein Isolate if I have a lactose allergy?

Although most believe they cannot use a whey protein supplement due to lactose intolerance, our Whey Protein Isolate is simply the milk protein without the lactose. It may be possible to find trace amounts of lactose in the powder.

  1. If the Pure 21 Wellness Challenge encourages you to remove dairy, why is the shake made of a dairy product?

When the team formulated this, they wanted to ensure the absolute best protein on the market and that just so happens to be whey isolate. As part of the isolate extraction process all the fats, sugars and “bad” things from milk are refined out so it’s easily digestible and doesn’t have the negative effects of normal dairy products.

  1. Will there be a vegan option available?

Soon! In the future, we’re definitely looking to create a vegan protein option. 

FAQ

MULTIVITAMIN

  1. What is the absorption rate of the multivitamin?

We do not have the formal clinical studies needed in order to provide this information.

FAQ

DIGESTIVE ENZYME

  1. Why should I take digestive enzymes?

Short answer: for a better feeling gut. Long answer: it’s an essential! Modern diets typically include a lot of processed food which can lead to discomfort like bloating. Digestive enzymes can not only help cut down on this kind of discomfort, but also gives your digestive system a helping hand overall by helping break down and process nutrients you consume.

FAQ

PURE START

  1. Can I do the cleanse only?

While we recommend the full challenge for the best chance at success, you can take Pure Start and do your own cleanse if desired. This short-term detox can be purchased on its own on our website. Even if you’re using Pure Start only and not taking the challenge, wait 6-8 weeks between cleanses and note the combination of highly effective ingredients in Pure Start may overstimulate the digestive tract and cause diarrhea, bloating, loose stools, or cramping for some.

In response to customer feedback, we now recommend the following for Pure Start:

1. Start your cleanse by taking 1 capsule a day before bedtime (instead of the bottle-recommended 2 capsules). If your body doesn’t seem to respond to 1 capsule, you can increase to 2 capsules per day. If you run into unexpected issues when taking Pure Start (1 or 2 capsules), discontinue use until bowel movements are less frequent and/or normal. Then begin again using only 1 capsule a day until the 7 days is over.

2. Eat enough food. Pure Start must have something to “push through” your GI tract. Maintain meal frequency and quantity during the cleanse.

3. Drink enough water. Pure Start will not work as effectively without lots and lots of water. Have a goal of at least 1 gallon (128 oz or 3,785 mL) a day at minimum during the cleanse.

  1. Does Pure Start need to be taken in the evening?

Not necessarily. This isn’t so much a need as it is a recommendation. All that matters is taking Pure Start before bed to give it time to be absorbed into your body before you start your day. For most, bedtime is evening but there are plenty of people who have alternative schedules too! If you work nights or otherwise keep an alternative schedule, don’t worry about the time of day, just take Pure Start before you head to bed and you’re all set.

FAQ

DAILY PROBIOTIC

  1. Do I really have to take Daily Probiotic three times a day?

Our suggested use is three times a day but if you find yourself forgetting to take it that often, no sweat. We get it. Feel free to drop to 2 or even 1 a day as needed. Even taking just 1 a day can help!

FAQ

COLLAGEN PEPTIDES

  1. Why’s collagen important?

By age 25, collagen production starts declining by approximately 1-2%, so give your body what it needs! It’s the most abundant protein in the body and related to structure of many different areas of the body. While collagen supplements are first on the list when it comes to beauty, it’s important to remember it’s not only relevant to hair, skin, and nails, but also key to healthy joints and strong bones!

  1. Does it have allergens?

This supplement is free of sugar, soy, milk, eggs, synthetic colors, artificial flavors and ingredients, hidden additives, fillers, gluten and most major allergens. Do not use this supplement if you have a known hypersensitivity (allergy) to any of the ingredients. While most Pure 21 products don’t contain the majority of common allergens, they are manufactured in facilities that do. Our facilities follow safety guidelines and sterilize equipment between production batches, so cross-contamination is highly unlikely; however we support full transparency, hence why it is noted on the packaging. We much prefer to apologize for being accurate, when most companies choose not to, rather than apologize for trying to hide something from our consumers.

  1. Is it all natural?

No. While we incorporate many natural elements in our Collagen Peptides supplement, we do also rely on synthetics ingredients used in processing so, that’s why we don’t mark this supplement as “all natural”.

  1. Is it vegan friendly?

No. In general, all collagen is derived from animals in some form and therefore can’t be vegan.

  1. What flavor is it?

It’s unflavored! So, you can get your protein boost however you like without worrying about flavor combos. It’s great in both hot and cold drinks, plus you can use it in your favorite recipes for dishes like soup, oats, and baked goods.

  1. How do I use it?

Add a scoop to 8 oz. (237 ml) of liquid and mix thoroughly until fully dissolved. One effortless way to get this beauty boost into your daily routine is adding it to your morning coffee!

  1. Should I use it at a certain time of day?

Not really. There’s no real science behind taking it in the morning vs evening. We think it’s more important to work it into your routine at a time that’s most convenient for you, whether it’s an addition to a cup of joe, an afternoon pre-workout shake, or something completely different!

  1. Should this be taken with food?

No need. In fact, some feel keeping it simple by taking this supplement with minimal other ingredients and on an empty stomach helps maximize absorption. If it’s easiest to work it into recipes, that’s totally fine too! The important thing is getting your daily body boost, so just do so in a way that works for you.

  1. When will results be noticeable?

The best things take time and, since collagen is found in so many areas of the body, it should come as no surprise taking it as a supplement is no quick fix. Per studies noted by Healthline, we recommend using collagen peptides for at least 8 weeks to see how it’s working out for you. Note, all bodies are different, and some people absorb vitamins and minerals more quickly or effectively than others but 8 weeks is the general recommendation. Talk to your healthcare provider for more information.

  1. Who should take this supplement? / Are there age recommendations for this supplement?

As with all Pure Romance products, we do not recommend this product for anyone under the age of 18. In regards to foods prepared with collagen peptides, you’re welcome to share meals or snacks with younger family members on occasion. Keep in mind health needs are highly individualized and the needs of adult bodies can differ wildly from younger bodies that are still growing. Reach out to a pediatrician and/or your healthcare provider for additional questions.

  1. Can this help support fitness goals?

While this is not a dedicated athletic or fitness product, when used alongside regular exercise and/or strength training, may notice better lean muscle mass and/or feel more energetic, able to handle tougher workouts, and more.

  1. Can I use this as a pre-workout supplement?

Pre-workout supplements tend to be all about amino acids. Luckily, we’ve already got you covered there. Our Collagen Peptides powder is rich in the BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) you’re likely looking for so feel free to mix up a quick shake or smoothie before your workout.

  1. What BCAAs are in it? / What’s the BCAA trio in it?

L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine, and L-Valine. If you didn’t know, are typically known for muscle growth, post-workout recovery, and weight loss support.

  1. What amino acids are in it? What are the 7 essential amino acids in it?

The full list is on the label but for quick reference, the 7 essential amino acids in our powder are L-Histidine, L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine, L-Lysine, L-Methionine, L-Threonine, L-Valine. L-Tryptophan is also listed on our label as trace amounts can be found in our collagen peptides from naturally occurring sources of protein.

  1. Why is my bag not completely full?

Our packaging is made this way to accommodate the included scoop and allow for any settling during shipping. Additionally, this product is sold by weight not volume.

  1. What is goFAT® olive oil powder?

Only the best. Rather than focus on MCT oil, we decided to on goFAT® extra virgin olive oil powder on acacia! goFAT® is a premium blend of healthy, nutrient-rich fat powders (yes, there’s such a thing as good fats!) made from the world’s best olive oil, so your skin ages beautifully.

Olive is a body superfood that’s been around for centuries and for good reason. Extra virgin olive oil is rich in polyphenols, naturally occurring compounds in plant-based foods that have antioxidants. (Pro Tip: MCT doesn’t contain polyphenols.) goFAT® combines olive oil with pre-biotic acacia. Pre-biotic fibers are the ones you want for gut health as they support overall improvement and flora maintenance.

goFAT® is a trademark under exclusive global distribution by Compound Solutions, Inc.

  1. What’s hydrolyzed collagen?

This is collagen that’s undergone hydrolyzation, a process that breaks the proteins amino acid chains down in order to make it more digestible (or bioavailable). That means important nutrients (Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Threonine, and Valine!) ready for your body to absorb.

  1. Why hyaluronic acid?

There’s a reason hyaluronic acid (or HA) is a skin care sensation: it’s a moisture magnet. And we all know how important keeping skin hydrated is, especially when it comes to combatting visible signs of aging. One great way to get more HA is treating yourself to consumable HA vs sticking with topical HA only. That’s where our Collagen Peptides comes in.

  1. What’s the difference between collagen and collagen peptides?

Generally, collagen peptides have better bioavailability vs regular collagen so they’re better absorbed by the body.

  1. How much is in each serving?

11.1 g of collagen peptides per serving. We consider a serving a single level scoop.

  1. Is it third party tested?

Yes!

  1. What type of collagen is it?

Our collagen peptides is sourced from grass-fed bovine and rich in collagen Types I and III. To keep things short and sweet, Type I collagen is the most abundant type in the human body, and what most consider the “glue” that holds everything together. Type III is the second most abundant in the body and typically attributed to gut health and improving the look and feel of your skin.

  1. Where is it made?

Our Collagen Peptides powder is made in the USA with quality, globally sourced ingredients. It’s also cruelty-free and non-GMO!

  1. Why bovine collagen vs marine collagen?

We decided to go with bovine collagen for a few reasons!

      1. Sources. As you might’ve guessed, bovine collagen is typically derived from the bone and hide of cows while marine collagen can be derived from the bone, skin, and scales of fish.
      2. It’s a match! Studies show grass-fed collagen powder (like ours!) is highly biocompatible with the human body.
      3. Collagen type. Bovine collagen contains collagen Types I and III. Types I and III are the ones you likely know since they’re related to hair, skin, nails, bones, etc. Marine collagen is primarily Type II collagen. This type is only found in cartilage. It’s an important type but your body needs so much more than just that!
      4. Potential allergens. Allergies to fish are unfortunately common and could be exacerbated by marine collagen. With bovine collagen, this common allergen is not a concern.
  1. Why powder vs liquid?

We decided to go with powder for a few different reasons.

      1. Customization. Powder is more easily incorporated into your foods and drinks of choice and generally the most flexible of all options (liquid, pills, etc.). In liquid-only form, collagen peptides are expected to be readily drinkable and flavorful, and let’s face it, we don’t all have the same taste in drinks.
      2. More collagen. Liquid collagen products tend to stay at the low range of 10 or less grams of collagen in one go. That means you’d likely have to take 2-3 times the amount to reach just 10 grams which means paying 2-3 times more. Since we’re not bottling collagen in small amounts, you’re free to hit higher collagen benchmarks every day without lugging around a bunch of bottles.
      3. Additives. In order to make collagen drinks palatable, sugars, salts, and other ingredients are unfortunately often added. We’d prefer to steer clear of these for obvious reasons.
      4. Collagen type. Our Collagen Peptides is rich in collagen Types I and III vs most liquid products on the market feature only Type II. (See question #24 for more detail.)
  1. What makes our collagen peptides special?

Put simply: it’s unrivaled beauty technology with a dose of decadence. Our Collagen Peptides features a breakthrough combination of hyaluronic acid and goFAT®, a premium blend of healthy, nutrient-rich fat powders for the most graceful of aging.

And, with the inclusion of goFAT®, our collagen peptides powder dissolves easily and adds a soft, creamy texture. From your morning coffee to baked goods, this unflavored powder makes your wellness efforts that much more rewarding.

  1. Can I take this supplement if I’ve been diagnosed with medical conditions or if take certain medications? / Can I take this supplement if I’m on thyroid medications or had bariatric surgery?

If you’re taking medications or have a medical condition or other concern, reach out to your healthcare provider with any questions before taking this supplement.

  1. Can I take this supplement while pregnant or trying to conceive?

While there is nothing about our Collagen Peptides supplement that is in any way provocative for a pregnant person, we still recommend getting the OK first. Pregnancy and surrounding stages can affect individual healthcare needs. If you are pregnant, nursing, or trying to conceive, consult your healthcare provider before taking this supplement. If approved, you should take this supplement only with the supervision of your healthcare provider.

  1. Can this product be taken while also taking other Pure 21 supplements? / Can this be taken while completing the Pure 21 Challenge?

Yes. But, as always, we recommend getting the green light from your healthcare provider. Additionally, if you’re already using our Whey Protein Isolate, be mindful of your total intake when considering adding more protein.

  1. Does this supplement contain stimulants?

Our collagen peptides powder does not contain caffeine or any other type of stimulant.

  1. Can this be taken in place of a prescription?

As our Collagen Peptides product is not a prescription medication, it cannot replace prescription medication.

FAQ

IMMUNITY BOOST

  1. Why’s immune support important?

If your immune system isn’t at peak performance, you notice. Poor immune health can mean less enjoyment when traveling abroad, experiencing anxiety when others around you get the sniffles, feeling like you always seem to have a cold, and generally just feeling unwell. When your immune system is strong and balanced, you feel your best many more days out of the year vs feeling ill.

  1. Does it have allergens?

This supplement is free of milk, soy, wheat, eggs, synthetic colors, artificial flavors and ingredients, hidden additives, fillers, and most major allergens. Do not use this supplement if you have a known hypersensitivity (allergy) to any of the ingredients. While most Pure 21 products don’t contain the majority of common allergens, they are manufactured in facilities that do. Our facilities follow safety guidelines and sterilize equipment between production batches, so cross-contamination is highly unlikely; however, we support full transparency, hence why it is noted on the packaging. We much prefer to apologize for being accurate, when most companies choose not to, rather than apologize for trying to hide something from our consumers.

  1. Is it all natural?

No. While we incorporate many natural elements in this supplements, we do also rely on synthetics ingredients used in processing so, that’s why we don’t mark this supplement as “all natural”.

  1. Is it vegan friendly?

For this supplement, we do not use animal byproducts etc. so it is vegetarian and suitable for most vegans.

  1. How do I use it? / Should I take this daily or only when I feel illness coming on?

Daily or occasionally, how often you want to use it is up to you. If you’re not sure if your personal health goals necessitate daily use or occasional use, talk to healthcare provider. At minimum, we recommend taking this supplement once a day during seasons and any periods of time (such as travel or stays abroad) where your body could use immune system support. Note, you should take all 3 capsules at the same time.

  1. Will taking this while ill improve my symptoms?

Unfortunately not. Immunity Boost is not a drug and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, illness, or otherwise. Our supplement helps support your body inside and out but can’t stand in for prescribed medications or antibiotics. If you are ill, please reach out to a healthcare provider ASAP to determine what’s best for you.

  1. Should I use it at a certain time of day?

Not really. We think it’s more important to work it into your routine at a time that’s most convenient for you and take your supplement regularly vs not at all.

  1. Should this be taken with food?

Yes, we recommend taking the supplement with a meal.

  1. Who should take this supplement? / Are there age recommendations for this supplement?

As with all Pure Romance products, we do not recommend this product for anyone under the age of 18. Health needs are highly individualized, and the needs of adult bodies can differ wildly from younger bodies that are still growing. Reach out to your healthcare provider with additional questions.

  1. Where is it made?

Our supplement is made in the USA with quality, globally sourced ingredients. It’s also cruelty-free and non-GMO!

  1. Why only 200 IU of vitamin D?

Vitamin D, while an essential vitamin for the body, isn’t the only beneficial ingredient when it comes to overall immune health. When creating our supplement, we found 200 IU a good choice in combination with the rest of the ingredients. This supplement was formulated so that the combination of the ingredients produces results, not one specific ingredient. We’ve also found that most people consider adding Immunity Boost alongside a favorite multivitamin, in which case vitamin D is likely already covered. If that’s not the case for you, try to grab food fortified with vitamin D at breakfast or fish rich in vitamin D at lunch or dinner.

  1. Why vitamin A?

We think NIH captures it perfectly in noting this vitamin has a “critical role in enhancing immune function.” Just like the research mentions, vitamin A not only enhances function, but also helps provide an enhanced defense to keep you feeling your best.

  1. Why vitamin C?

Another great nutrient in the mix, vitamin C is important to immune system health! In fact, Vitamin C deficiency results in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections. Given that, we knew this vitamin had to make the list.

  1. Why zinc?

Even if you know this one already, let’s review. Zinc, like most other elements in this supplement, plays multiple roles in the body but when it comes to immune health, it’s a must-have. For starters, zinc affects more than one aspect of the immune system, but it’s best known for helping bolster your body’s defenses.

  1. What’s an adaptogen?

They’re plants, typically herbs and roots, that trace back to Eastern healing traditions and augmenting the body’s resistance to all kinds of stressors, inside and out. Turmeric and Echinacea are the adaptogens found in our supplement. Some studies find adaptogens can play a role in managing inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, anxiety, and even muscle soreness.

  1. Can I take this supplement if I’ve been diagnosed with medical conditions or if take certain medications? / Can I take this supplement if I’m on thyroid medications or had bariatric surgery?

If you’re taking medications or have a medical condition or other concern, reach out to your healthcare provider with any questions before taking this supplement.

  1. Can I take this supplement while pregnant or trying to conceive?

While there is nothing about our supplement that is in any way provocative for a pregnant person, we don’t generally recommend taking this supplement while pregnant. Pregnancy and surrounding stages can affect individual healthcare needs. If you are pregnant, nursing, or trying to conceive, consult your healthcare provider before taking this supplement. If approved, you should take this supplement only with the supervision of your healthcare provider.

  1. Can this product be taken while also taking other Pure 21 supplements? / Can this be taken while completing the Pure 21 Challenge?

Yes. But, as always, we recommend getting the green light from your healthcare provider.

  1. Does this supplement contain stimulants?

This supplement does not contain caffeine or any other type of stimulant.

  1. Can this be taken in place of a prescription?

As this product is not a prescription medication, it cannot replace prescription medication.
