Recently I had the chance to try PWURE supplements. What is it?
It’s a customized supplement that is individually made. My PWURE is different from yours and every other person. It makes sense since we all have different needs. It’s not just a simple protein powder that is the same for everyone.
About the Company PWURE:
According to the website: PWURE is the contraction of Pure and Power.
- Pure: Anything that’s uncontaminated by extra, unnecessary, or unclean substances. The PWURE supplement doesn’t have any extra junk.
- Power: Sport endurance power is defined as a watt. The more watts you produce, the more power you generate.
How was PWURE Started?
The founders of PWURE are runners. When they moved to the US, they could not find a single product that met their needs as long-distance runners. They began creating their own and mixing ingredients. Eventually, friends and other runners began asking them to create recipes, and PWURE was created.
It’s rare to find a supplement or protein company founded by runners for runners. Many times, it’s a supplement created by bodybuilders or gym-goers and not for endurance athletes.
What makes PWURE Different?
- Customized formulas for endurance athletes
- It can be made in organic, vegan, and gluten-free
- Both Pre- and post-workout nutrition mixes
- Ability to sync with Strava training history to create an even more personalized formula
My experience with PWURE Supplements:
Unlike regular protein shakes, PWURE is created for each athlete. Each formula is data-driven and uses quality ingredients.
Creating your formula with PWURE:
When you log onto the website, you put in a plethora of information that induces height, weight, and activity level. You can also link up your fitness tracker, including Garmin, Fitbit, Sunnoto, Apple, and Strava, for even more customization. You don’t *have* to input your training history, but obviously, it helps with more customization.
Then PWURE will ask if you want to include caffeine, vitamin B12, and Vitamin D. It also asks what kind of protein you want (brown rice, whey, or pea). Finally, it will ask for a flavor option, including unflavored, vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry.
I chose pea protein and vanilla flavoring (for no reason other than it sounded good).
It’s not a complicated process, and you follow the manual questionnaire. I tried both the PWURE Pre-workout and Post-workout.
PWURE Protein Arriving:
After ordering, PWURE arrived roughly 3-4 days after. It was fairly fast, and I was excited to try it. The PWURE packaging is really cool. It has a customized label with your name and the day it was created. It appears the packing of PWURE is done in sustainable packaging, which is always nice.
One thing that I wish PWURE came with was a scooper. Why doesn’t it?
PWURE Protein Taste:
As I’ve mentioned previously, if a protein powder or supplement doesn’t taste good, it’s hard for me to consume it. In fact, I usually don’t. With vanilla, PWURE is sweeter than many protein powders I’ve tried but not in a “too sweet” type of way. It mixes well and doesn’t get gritty. I don’t hate consuming it, which is always a plus with protein.
The PWURE Pre-workout is obviously designed to improved performance. It includes a carbohydrate mix, including fructose and beta-alanine. Mine also included caffeine.
I don’t like to take any pre-workouts all of the time. I don’t have a habit of taking them, period, but I have taken them occasionally before workouts and races. Usually, anything “long” or “fast.”
I appreciated that it tasted good, mixed well, and didn’t make me feel “jittery.” If I consume too much caffeine, it can trigger a migraine, but I didn’t have an issue with that.
My mix had 78 calories per serving. The ingredients in my pre-workout were simple and included organic tapioca, organic fructose, beta-alanine, and organic tea extract. Nothing else! It sat in my stomach well and didn’t give me any digestion issues. I definitely noticed a difference on the days I took the PWURE Pre-workout (in a good way).
The PWURE Post-Workout is obviously designed for after your workout and to improve recovery. My personal blend recommended being used as 1/2 cup+1 tablespoon. It’s slightly complicated versus a “scoop,” but that is what makes it so personalized.
The ingredients of my PWURE Post-workout were simple and included organic tapioca, organic fructose, organic pea protein, brown rice protein, organic lichen extract, vitamin D3, and Vitamin B12. That’s it! Mixing it was easy. It advises to mix it in 11+ ounces of water, and that’s what I did.
It was easily digestible, and for a protein powder with no smoothie ingredients, it tasted good. It wasn’t gritty, and I didn’t feel bloated afterward.
For 10 servings of the pre-workout and 10-15 servings of the post-workout, the cost with tax was $81.87.
I like the PWURE protein and supplements. It’s one of the most customizable supplements you can purchase right now. It’s also one of the most digestible protein powders I’ve come across. I don’t feel like I’m forcing it.
The only “issue” I really see is the cost. While the ingredients are great and you feel good about consuming, PWURE is not a cheap protein powder. You can’t look past a protein powder formulated for you and your needs.
