Purus Labs Strawberry & Pretzel Protein Cheesecake Bites

Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Pretzels

I know what you’re thinking…pretzel?

Well, surprisingly these little salty bites go well with the sweet and creamy cheesecake! Every summer while growing up, my momma would make this “pretzel dessert” with cream cheese and strawberries and I wanted to recreate it in cheesecake form with protein! (Obviously) The protein I used for this recipe is Purus Labs MyoFeed Protein in “Moms strawberry milkshake”. The protein alone is so yummy and what is awesome about this particular powder is that there is little slivers of REAL STRAWBERRY! HOW CREATIVE?! So if you are into IIFYM, this is the perfect recipe for you!

Marcos are 4p/5c/1f per serving a.k.a. 45 calories. (So basically, you can eat 2, 3, 4 or as many you want, as long as it fits your macros!)

Here is what you will need:

For the crust:

–    11 pretzels
–    6 graham crackers squares
–    1 tbsp butter
–    1-2 tbsp of unsweetened almond milk
–    1 tbsp Truvia

For the cheesecake filling

–    4 oz fat free cream cheese
–    3 oz low fat cottage cheese
–    3 oz chobani greek yogurt (plain)
–    1 egg
–    2 egg whites
–    2 tbsp of Truvia
–    1 scoop of Purus Labs MyoFeed Protein in “Moms strawberry milkshake”

Directions:

Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Step 1 Step 1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Place graham crackers and pretzel crisp in a zip lock bag and use a rolling pin to chop them up! or you can use a food processor, but i’m old school.

 Step 2. place mixture into small bowl and almond milk, truvia, and butter. Make sure the mixture is not too wet because nobody likes soggy pretzels!

Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Step 2 Step 3. Distribute the mixture into muffin cups and smash down using a spoon or your thumb. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

 Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Step 3 Step 4. Using a hand mixer, combine cream cheese, cottage cheese, and greek yogurt. mix for at least one minute, until combined.

Step 5. Keep mixing at a low speed and add the 1 egg, 2 egg whites, Truvia, and Purus Labs MyoFeed Protein powder ingredients one at a time, allowing each ingredient to mix in before adding the next.

 Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Step 4 Step 6. Pour the mixture over the pretzel/graham cracker crust. Reduce heat to 300° F and bake for 30 minutes.

Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Step 5/6 Step 7. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes. Then, transfer cheesecakes to refrigerator and let them hang out in there for 2 hours.

Purus Labs Protein Cheesecake Bites - Step 8 Step 8. Top with fat free cream cheese (it’s a MUST), a little strawberry and baby pretzell! (Oh so fancy)

On the rise, Purus Labs Theatrim is the solution…or is it?

PURUS LABS THEATRIM

RATIONALE FOR CREATION

The weight loss/thermogenic category has been stagnant and lacking ingenuity for quite some time. With an overwhelming percentage of our population being overweight, and an even larger percentage whom would still like to shed a few pounds, the case should be quite the contrary. Compound this with the fact that it boasts one of the industry’s largest market categories by consumer demand, and you can see the clear need for attention and innovation.

TheaTrim is our answer.

We are proud and excited to be the world’s first company to introduce Teacrine, a nature-identical compound proven to enhance psychometric indices of energy and endurance. We’ve combined it with a research-drenched supporting cast of other materials designed to increase energy, overall sense of well being, thermogenesis, and stored fat utilization through strategic neurochemical pathway manipulation. Best of all, Teacrine doesn’t seem to cause habituation, therefore consumers are less likely to develop a tolerance with TheaTrim as with other energy and weight loss products.

PERFORMANCE INCLUSIONS

InstEnergy

TeaCrine (theacrine) is a nature identical compound found in certain botanical sources that has been shown to positively act on both dopaminergic and adenosinergic nuerochmical pathways (i.e. mood and stimulation). By strategically and favorably manipulating these complex pathways, enhanced energy, improved concentration, and reductions in fatigue are experienced. Although structurally similar to caffeine, preliminary evidence suggests lesser signs of tolerance, therefore your body won’t become desensitized over time requiring increased dosages. Essentially, Teacrine provides all the weight loss benefits of caffeine, plus some, but with less central nervous system stimulation and less build up of tolerance.

Dicaffeine malate & Caffeine anhydrous are also included for their famed effects on alertness, energy, and appetite suppression. Dicaffeine malate crosses the blood-brain barrier more rapidly than the benchmark, caffeine anhydrous, so we’ve included both to achieve somewhat of a tiered stimulatory effect.

Methylcobalamin & SAMe (S-Adenosyl methionine)

Included for methyl group metabolism and tri-monoamine modulation. In short, they support an overall better sense of well being through neurochemical involvement with norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin.

Citrus Bioflavanoid complex (std. for hesperidin)

Specifically included for CYP 450 inhibition, an endogenous protein designed to oxidize (break down) certain substances such as caffeine. By blunting this, we can increase the active life of these molecules. This gives our caffeine blend more bang for the buck.

White Willow Bark extract (std. for salicin)

Salicin acts like nature’s aspirin, thinning the blood allowing for more rapid circulation and delivery of paired compounds. Aspirin and caffeine have long been used in conjunction due to their synergistic nature, both for pain and weight management. We have included it as somewhat of a formula accelerant, as it makes sure no time is wasted delivering these caffeine alkaloids to their receptors where they can begin doing work.

Rauwolfia Vomitoria (root bark extract)

Added precisely for alpha adrenergic receptor antagonism. Alpha receptors inhibit fat loss. Beta receptors stimulate fat loss. Most stubborn, high density fat areas, such as the lower back on males and the hips/thighs of women, contain a higher ratio of alpha to beta receptors. If we can antagonize (blunt) the alpha receptors while simultaneously stimulating the beta receptors, we create an ideal scenario for fat mobilization and weight loss.

USAGE: To assess your tolerance, begin with 1 serving taken with food. If tolerance permits, you may consume up to 4 servings throughout the day. Do not exceed 2 servings at any one time, and do not consume within 4-6 hours of bedtime.

SUMMARY: Through its flagship ingredient, Teacrine, Purus Labs’ TheaTrim is an ingenuitive and novel approach to weight loss and energy stimulation. Through identifying, focusing on, and addressing specific neurochemical and metabolic pathways, TheaTrim is a synergistic force specifically aimed at the issues surrounding fat loss and energy production. Uniquely, due to its specific formulation, consumers are less likely to develop a tolerance as well. This means consistent delivery of results without the need for increasing the dosage.

The TRUTH from Purus Labs president on the new MyoFeed Protein

PURUS LABS MYOFEED

Inarguably one of the most influential nutrients an athlete can consume, we at Purus Labs® have always revered whole protein as a supplemental cornerstone. Until recently, however, we weren’t aware of the dire need for a quality manufactured “commodity” item such as this. We watched in disbelief as many companies were slapped with class action lawsuits for deceptive manufacturing practices. We listened to our customers’ pleas and answered the issue head-on by assembling a tiered-absorption pure protein with an amino acid-rich nutrient profile that goes beyond simple whey protein.

RATIONALE FOR CREATION

“Protein Spiking,” or “Amino Spiking,” has recently become a common deceptive practice throughout the sports supplements industry. In efforts to combat diminishing profit margins due to relentlessly rising protein prices, companies are slashing the amount of true, whole protein and replacing with cheap, free-form amino acids such as taurine, glycine, alanine or even arginine. They get away with this because they exploit a loophole whereby using these nitrogen rich amino acids, they fool the benchmark Kjeldahl methods for testing protein content. Functionally, this test relies on and measures nitrogen content to determine the amount of protein within a given sample; therefore, deceptively nitrogen-rich free form amino acids will not only register as whole protein gram for gram, but they register as far more protein than this allowing companies to use even LESS protein in their products. They mask these modifications by masquerading like they are adding extra amino acids, when in fact, they are substituting them for the whole protein you are paying for.

MYOFEED = ABSOLUTELY NO AMINO SPIKING!

CONSTITUENTS

Cold Processed Ultra Filtered Whey Protein Isolate– Further refined by more stringent cold filtering, removing more fat and carbohydrates than with whey concentrate, isolate protein more quickly absorbed than most other proteins. This provides an immediate spike in plasma amino acid levels and ushers them to muscles at a rapid pace.

Microfiltered Whey Protein Concentrate– Rich in BCAA content and boasting one of the highest Biological Values (BV),104, this has long been the benchmark standard for supplemental protein. It is quickly absorbed, not as quickly as isolate though, making them a great stack.

Micellar Casein– non-denatured milk protein, micellar casein has a very slow and sustained digestion/absorption rate compared to that of whey isolate and concentrate. Although it doesn’t have the acute effect on plasma amino acid levels that the other two forms do, its sustained digestion feeds your muscles for longer periods.

VitaFiber Prebiotic Fiber– Isomalto-oligosaccharide is an uniquely shelf-stable and gluten free prebiotic fiber. Consuming enough high-quality protein is one thing, but digesting and absorbing the protein is an even more important factor. This highly specialized fiber will encourage digestive health, ensuring the proper stage is set for your protein consumption to be maximally utilized.

Aminogen Digestive Enzymes– This goes hand-in-hand with our VitaFiber addition as this patented blend of digestive proteases has been shown by researchers that it can triple the rate of protein absorption, double the levels of free form amino acids, and increase nitrogen retention up to 32%. This highly studied enzyme blend will help ensure your protein is broken down, processed and absorbed efficiently and effectively.

SUMMARY

Entrust your daily protein requirements to Purus Labs® MyoFeed™ and eliminate the physical and financial risk of “Amino Spiking.”  Our mantra from day one, PRIDE OVER PROFIT, couldn’t be more applicable than now. We couldn’t just standby and let this travesty continue, so we created a solution…and our solution has natural cookie pieces in it.

The New MyoFeed from Purus Labs looks promising.

Purus Labs is now entering the protein market with MyoFeed.  According to Purus, this new Protein will be not be spiked with Aminos, where others on the market add extra Arginine, Taurine or Glycine to up the protein content thus falsifying the label claim. Myofeed contains three main sources of protein, Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Isolate and Micellar Casein and they are available in Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry.  In addition MyoFeed also contains digestive enzymes and a gluten free prebiotic fiber.

Purus Labs D-Pol Press Release

University Studies confirm benefits of D-Pol® extend to the gym and beyond.

Dallas, TX – November 12, 2014 – The University of Memphis conducted two studies on the effects of D-Pol confirming its validity and position in the dietary supplement marketplace.
The results of the studies, which are currently pending publication, were summarized by Dr. Rick Bloomer as follows:

“In the first study, 24 young and healthy men (average age of 23 years) were assigned in double-blind manner to ingest either D-Pol (one serving) or a placebo, daily for 28 days… Blood nitrate/nitrite was increased significantly following intake of D-Pol, from 19.1±2.1 μmol∙L-1 (pre) to 70.0±12.4 μmol∙L-1 at 14 days and 68.6±7.7 μmol∙L-1 at 28 days. The cumulative number of repetitions performed during a five-set bench press challenge was 11.3% higher after 28 days of supplementation with D-Pol, as compared to 3.6% higher for placebo.

“In our follow-up study, we enrolled 12 healthy, middle-aged men (average age of 42 years) who supplemented with D-Pol at either one or two servings daily for 28 days. Blood total and free testosterone and blood nitrate/nitrite was measured before and after 14 and 28 days of supplementation, as were subjects’ subjective feelings related to overall health. Total and free testosterone was increased on average approximately 7-10% with supplementation, with some subjects experiencing much more dramatic increases (e.g., >40%). As in our initial study, blood nitrate/ nitrite increased significantly with D-Pol treatment; approximately 4-fold with one serving daily
and 10-fold with two servings daily… Finally, subjective questionnaires completed by subjects indicated increased vitality, libido, energy levels, and mental outlook with D-Pol supplementation, at both dosages.”

Dr. Bloomer is currently Department Chair of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Memphis where he holds the title of Professor and Director of the Cardiorespiratory/Metabolic Laboratory. His research is focused on nutrient and exercise interventions aimed at attenuating oxidative stress—ultimately leading to improved metabolic and cardiovascular health. Purus Labs will continue to partner with Dr. Bloomer and his research team at the University of Memphis to test and enhance Purus products to ensure top quality and guaranteed results.
