EndurElite Chief Endurance Officer Matt Mosman discusses how the supplement PURENERY found in PerformElite can provide up to 8 hours of sustained energy to endurance athletes without the jitters or crash.
Good morning caffeinated cyclists, revved up runners, and other endurance friends. Matt Mosman, Chief Endurance Officer over at EndurElite, the maker of premium supplements for endurance athletes and endurance training and supplement expert.
Hey, I was thinking the other day, it's been quite a while since we've actually talked about a supplement. So today, we're going to talk about one very cool ingredient found in PerformElite called PurEnergy.
PurEnergy is caffeine pterostilbene co-crystal. What? What is that? I don't know. I'm not a gynecologist. I can't tell you what it is. But as a scientist, I can tell you what it is.
Kinda as the name implies, PurEnergy caffeine pterostilbene co-crystal is a combination of caffeine and pterostilbene. From previous videos, you're all familiar with what caffeine is and kinda, you know, what it does to enhance endurance performance. Basically, it competes with a molecule called adenosine for the adenosine receptor. When adenosine binds to this receptor, it makes you feel real tired and sleepy and stuff like that. But when caffeine gets in there and kicks that adenosine's ass, that's when you, kind of, get that nice burst of energy and the nice endurance enhancing effects.
So all familiar with caffeine. Now, what is pterostilbene? Pterostilbene is a polyphenol found in blueberries and grapes. Basically, it's an antioxidant that has a lot of cool benefits. It can improve blood flow. It can improve glucose and lipid oxidation. It can reduce inflammation and anxiety. By themselves, caffeine and pterostilbenes have a lot of cool effects as it relates to improving endurance performance, but when you kind of mash them together in this PurEnergy molecule, is really where the magic happens.
So research on PurEnergy has shown three really cool things as it relates to caffeine. One, PurEnergy delivers about 30% more caffeine into the bloodstream compared to ordinary caffeine. Two, Six hours after taking PurEnergy, there's about 51% more caffeine in the bloodstream compared to ordinary caffeine. And three, the half-life of caffeine in PurEnergy is extended by about 25% which is pretty damn significant.
What I'm getting at here is PurEnergy is absolutely awesome, and what it's going to do when combined with the caffeine anhydrous in PerformElite is when you take it, initially, you're going to get a quick burst of energy from the caffeine anhydrous found in PerformElite. Then after that is where the PurEnergy comes in. It will basically give you sustained energy for up to about eight hours, and you won't have that typical caffeine crash.
We've been getting a lot of feedback on PerformElite or questions about PerformElite saying, you know, what is this awesome amount of energy I'm getting that seems to last forever without giving me, you know, a typical, like, energy crash? This is the PurEnergy within the PerformElite product. So you're going to get in PerformElite, 150 milligrams of caffeine anhydrous, again, for that quick burst of energy. Then you're going to get 150 milligrams of PurEnergy. And kind of, the break down with that is PurEnergy is about 43% caffeine and then 57% of that pterostilbene. So total yield of caffeine in PerformElite is about 215 milligrams, which is really a sweet spot for endurance athletes in terms of the amount you need to improve endurance performance.
So that is the 411 on the PurEnergy found in PerformElite. If you like this video, share it with your friends. If you have any questions, comment below and I will answer them.
