Pure Encapsulations produces many different hypoallergenic nutritional supplements that are intended to support various health conditions and symptoms. Whether it be a healthier gut, improved immune system, or stronger heart, Pure Encapsulations has a supportive formula.
Because the supplements are developed based on research, and hand-in-hand with capable healthcare professionals, you can be sure you’re getting the highest quality, no matter what supplement you’re using. To provide you with the best product possible, Pure Encapsulations starts with the highest quality ingredients and uses doses that are supported by research and clinical studies.
Pure Encapsulations’ testing and quality control procedures are world- and industry -renowned, ensuring that high-quality ingredients translate into high-quality supplements.
Even with such a wide variety of products and supplements, Pure Encapsulations has managed to make sure that all of their supplements, not just some, but all of their supplements are free from wheat and gluten, eggs, peanuts, coatings and shellacs, GMOs, magnesium stearate, trans fats and hydrogenated oils, artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners, unnecessary binders, fillers, and preservatives.
They are able to use their powerful research facilities to make compounds that are highly absorbable without all of the fillers and other additives some supplement producers need to rely on. As someone who has balanced life with severe digestive disorders for over two decades, I appreciate that there aren’t a bunch of fillers and binders in Pure Encapsulations products. When I am in an IBD flare-up, the last thing I want to worry about is the ingredients in my supplements. I’m too concerned about what I am eating and not eating.
As a nutritionist, I am comfortable recommending Pure Encapsulations supplements because I don’t have to worry about even my most sensitive clients. My clients who seem to react to everything, who are on the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) or Low FodMap diets need extremely pure supplements so that they don’t flare up their immune cells. Pure Encapsulations is the brand I trust for anyone with digestive problems from occasional diarrhea, food sensitivities, to Crohn's disease.
Pure Encapsulations also sources their raw materials from some of the most trusted industry leaders, primarily from the U.S., France, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. With such a wide range of products, it’s almost impossible to review the benefits of all of them in one post, but I’m going to highlight some of the most impressive and useful formulas: Pure Encapsulations Magnesium glycinate, ProbioMood, and PureGG 25B.
Before I start into these three top products, please know that Pure Encapsulations offers far more supplements than these three, including vitamin D3, thyroid supplement complexes, B complexes, One multivitamins, and so many others. If you are wondering where to buy Pure Encapsulations formulas, you can find them here.
Magnesium glycinate is a highly bioavailable magnesium chelate. Magnesium chelates support the metabolism and utilization of many essential nutrients such as B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. Magnesium also plays an important role in the proper function of enzymatic and physiological functions, like neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in your body.
Magnesium glycinate is perfect for maintaining bone health with a study showing a higher intake of magnesium was positively associated with bone mineralization in study participants. When it comes to your heart, magnesium helps your arterial function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein metabolism and lipid metabolism.
Based on twenty different studies, magnesium has also been found to promote healthy systolic and diastolic functions, helping to regulate your heart rate and blood pressure. One study has even linked magnesium to healthy glucose utilization, on top of all of the cardiovascular benefits.
Of course, as with any supplement, there is always the potential for side effects. Magnesium has very few, the main potential adverse effects revolving around gastrointestinal upset and diarrhea, though this is less common with glycinate as it is with other magnesium compounds. However, anyone who is pregnant, lactating, or has kidney disease needs to consult with their doctor before taking magnesium.
Next, let’s talk about your gut bacteria and what products Pure Encapsulations offers for maintaining healthy levels. One of the strongest formulas from Pure Encapsulations is PureGG 25B. It is a probiotic offering 25 billion CFU of lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, one of the most researched and reliable probiotic strains on the market. This particular strain has been identified for its resistance to gastric acidity, adhesion properties, and the ability to support a healthy gut microflora, but it also helps to support your immune system and reduce some forms of inflammation.
One of the bonuses of this particular strain and supplement is that there really are no side effects. As with many probiotics, this blend could cause a slight increase in stomach gas and bloating, but unless this persists or worsens, the side effects should go away on their own as your body adjusts to the healthier gut bacteria.
Their other unique probiotic supplement is ProbioMood, a two-in-one supplement that not only helps maintain and regulate your gut bacteria, it also helps to reduce occasional stress and promote emotional well-being and relaxation. ProbioMood incorporates clinically researched probiotic combinations of strains. Pure Encapsulations developed innovative, patented microencapsulation to protect the probiotic strains from harsh conditions, like your stomach acid, compression, and thermal shock. This allows the probiotics to reach your small and large intestines where they are needed. Without this protective encapsulation, the probiotics would be killed by your stomach acid and other digestive juices.
ProbioMood works to offer unique support for emotional well-being and relaxation. You might wonder how a probiotic can affect your mood? Research has suggested that both Lactobacillus Helveticus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium Longum Rosell-175 help support emotional well-being, in part by supporting a healthy cytokine balance and intestinal integrity. In other words, these two probiotic strains reduce inflammation in your gut, which translates to reduced inflammation in your brain.
One double-blind placebo-controlled trial showed that the supplement maintained healthy urinary cortisol levels, as well as supported a positive mood, relaxation, and cognitive functions. In addition, another double-blind placebo-controlled trial showed that the two active probiotics in ProbioMood moderated the normal gastrointestinal stress response by 49%. If you are going to take a probiotic, and if you also have mood issues, this is the formula I recommend.
One reviewer Carris S. states,
“This seems to help with sleep. It is good quality and priced well.”
Another reviewer, Jessica G., says,
“Magnesium glycinate is an excellent source of magnesium. It absorbs very well into my system. Feel excellent and calm when taking it. Very centered! I highly recommend this product!”
Pure Encapsulations prides itself on being one of the best supplement and dietary nutrition providers on the market today and they succeed in bringing high quality and affordable supplements to you the consumer.
Pure Encapsulations has a long-standing excellent reputation for pure and clean products. They use medically studied ingredients and doses, without adding fillers and binders. If you would like to incorporate Pure Encapsulations formulas into your wellness regime, please schedule a consultation with me.
In Good Health,

Colostrum. Chances are that is the first time you’ve read that word. Maybe you were intrigued by the cow and calf picture and decided to see why something called “Colostrum” warrants its own blog post. Or, maybe you read our previous post and know all about the wonders of colostrum and are thirsty for more information.

OrthoSpore Biotic and Microbiome Labs Sporebiotic are both formulas I wish I could have access to and used for my own health decades ago. The forefront of medicine and more particularly, digestive health, is in probiotics. Yes, your diet matters, but your probiotic make-up---known as your microbiome--- matters even more.
