I’m not going to lie, ladies and gentlemen of the blogosphere- in my line of work, I try a lot of different vitamins and supplements. In fact, I probably take more pills in one day than an 80 year old woman. Chalk it up to all those multis, ya know? Anywho, Pure Matters is a brand that was recently introduced to me, and one that I have become rather impressed with. This past month, I had the opportunity to test drive both Be Lean and Enliven with 5-HTP. More on that below!
On BeLean, from the Pure Matters Website:
“One of the toughest challenges when trying to lose weight is maintaining lean body mass while losing fat. Pure Matters® Be Lean helps support healthy weight management and a healthy lean body mass. This unique formula contains ForsLean®, named best new product at 2001 Nutracon. Extracted from the roots of Coleus forskohlii, the only known plant source of forskolin, ForsLean® is a patented phytonutrient designed to aid in weight management. Clinical trials have shown that ForsLean® may help maintain a healthy body weight and maintain lean body mass. Pure Matters® Be Lean could be especially beneficial to athletes, bodybuilders, and anyone seeking a little extra help in improving their body composition.”
I took my BeLean every morning for a month, and in that time saw a drop of 4 lbs on my already small frame. While I don’t attribute the weight loss solely to the supplement (I diet and exercise like a fiend), I will certainly say that it helped!
Enliven with 5-HTP- From the website:
“Serotonin is the brain’s feel-good hormone; if you produce too little of it, your days might be gloomy and your nights, restless. But an exciting discovery has been made in the forests of West Africa. A native wild shrub, Griffonia simplicifolia, has been found to contain high levels of 5-HTP, an natural amino acid derivative used by the body to form serotonin. Recent research links 5-HTP supplementation with significant increases in serotonin within the central nervous system. Pure Matters has carefully extracted 5-HTP from powdered Griffonia simplicifolia seeds and paired it with vitamin B-6, hops and valerian to promote relaxation while at the same time increasing concentration. There’s also calcium and magnesium to help with the transmission of nerve impulses related to mood and sleep. With your new outlook on life, you’ll want to remember these days forever.”
Enliven in something that I took every night before I went to bed, for it’s ability to enhance my sleep experience. All in all, I’d definitely say I noticed a difference both in my mood, and in the quality of sleep I got.
Having tried both of these products, I can definitely attest to the fact that Pure Matters is a gem of a supplement company, with amazing products. For more information, and to get in on the Pure Matters action, be sure to check out their page, here!
