How soon can I expect to feel a difference?
If you are using the Pre-Workout, you may feel the difference on your first use. That’s because the Pre-Workout delivers natural energy sources to support focus and intensity as well as nutrients that support optimal blood flow to muscle during an intense workout.
How soon can I see results?
Results vary from person to person, depending upon numerous factors, such as how frequently you work out, for how long, how intensely, your starting fitness level and weight, etc. That said, all of the product formulations were created utilizing the most current scientific research on nutrition and performance. For example, both our Whey Protein and Recovery products give you at least 2.5g of L-Leucine, a branched chain amino acid that triggers muscle protein synthesis.
What difference will I see in my workouts?
By complementing your workouts with the Pursuit Rx line-up, you will experience various results, depending upon the product or products that you are using.
Pre-Workout – supports maximal circulation leading to increased endurance, helps reduce fatigue and faster post-workout recovery; delivers natural energy from two tea extracts; and muscle tissue protection.
Whey Protein – supports faster muscle recovery, faster gains in strength, endurance and total performance and fit appearance .
Recovery Blend – supports faster muscle refueling and recovery, faster gains in strength, endurance, and total physical performance and fit appearance.
Fish Oil – helps minimize inflammation process which result from intense training, which as a result can lessen muscle and joint pain
Do you guarantee the quality of your products?
Yes. If you are at all dissatisfied with our products due to some sort of packaging or product quality defect, we will replace it or provide a refund at no cost to you. However, our products endure rigorous quality checks and are manufactured in NSF Sport GMP manufacturing facilities so you can count on quality.
Why should I take Pursuit Rx supplements?
When consumed in conjunction with a workout program, Pursuit Rx supplements will help you achieve performance gains faster than one can achieve without taking supplementation.
The Pre-Workout product gives you a natural energy boost; helps optimize circulation during exercise to support endurance and help reduce fatigue, allowing you to work out even harder; and it helps start the recovery process while you work out, via optimal nutrient delivery to the muscles as well as muscle tissue protection via the Tart Cherry extract.
Whey protein delivers the critical branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) your body needs to help repair your muscles after working out. Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein is made from all-natural whey protein concentrate and gives you 25g per serving of whey protein, which in turn delivers enough of the BCAA L-Leucine to trigger muscle protein synthesis, the process by which your muscles get bigger and stronger. In addition, this product contains no gluten; no hormones (rBGH/rBST); no soy; no artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors. ; [SW1]
For athletes that train and perform hard, the ideal type of recovery product contains a mix of fast-absorbing, high glycemic carbohydrates and high quality protein. The carbohydrates trigger insulin production, which in turn “opens the gates” to your muscles to let the nutrients come in that will repair your muscles after working out. Much sport performance research indicates that the ideal carbohydrate to protein ratio is 2:1 for strength training and Pursuit Rx Recovery Blend is formulated with this 2:1 ratio, plus contains added L-Leucine to ensure that muscle protein synthesis gets triggered.
One of the biggest roadblocks for many people that workout is pain, much of which is due to exercise induced inflammation. Pursuit Rx Fish Oil gel caps are a critical component to help combat post-exercise inflammation. First, Pursuit Rx Fish Oil gel caps are 60%+ concentrated in Omega 3s, at least 2x versus your typical fish oil gel caps. Second, the Pursuit Rx Fish Oil gel caps provide triple action support against inflammation. Like most fish oils, it contains EPA, an Omega 3 known for its anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it contains Astaxanthin to help control inflammation, which usually is only found in krill oil products. Finally, it contains DPA, an Omega 3 that recent research is showing to prevent the inflammatory response.[SW2]
Are Pursuit Rx products safe for women who are pregnant or nursing?
Pregnant and nursing women should always consult with their doctor before taking any nutritional supplements, as every pregnancy and/or post-partum situation is different and should be appropriately evaluated by a physician.
Are Pursuit Rx products safe for children and teenagers?
Parents should consult with a doctor before buying any supplement to give to their children. While Pursuit Rx products are all-natural and clean/free of any harmful ingredients, every child’s nutrition needs vary and should be appropriately evaluated with a nutrition expert[RW3] .
How early can I use Pursuit Rx before a workout and how long after?
It is highly recommended that consumers use the Pursuit Rx Pre Workout 30 to 45 minutes prior to working out so it can start working before you start working out.
It is also highly recommended that consumers use the Pursuit Rx Recovery Blend within 30 minutes of working out, to start refueling and repairing your muscles right away.
Pursuit Rx 100% Whey protein can be taken anytime throughout the day depending upon your nutrition needs. It can be used right after waking up in the morning to reverse the negative effect of the overnight fast on your muscle; it can be used in-between meals as a satisfying, muscle supporting and healthy snack; post-workout if your dietary requirements dictate that you minimize your carbohydrate intake; or it can be used after meals, like a healthy dessert offering.
Pursuit Rx Fish Oil gel caps should be taken with meals whenever is convenient for you.
Is it preferable to use water vs. milk to mix with your supplements?
Only use water with the Pursuit Rx Pre-Workout, but you can take the Pursuit Rx Fish Oil gel caps with your favorite beverage and with a meal. It is up to you whether you use water or milk with the Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein products and the Recovery Blend. If you do use milk, however, know that you need to add the Nutrition Facts from the milk to those from the Pursuit Rx Nutrition Facts for your total nutritional intake. The Nutrition Fact panels on the Pursuit Rx products only factors in the use of water.
What difference can I expect to see from drinking Pursuit Rx compared to drinking plain water or fruit-flavored sports drinks?
Drinking water or flavored sports drinks helps your body to stay hydrated, but does little to actually repair your muscles and/or help minimize inflammation. By taking Pursuit Rx supplements, you will see that your body is less sore (DOMS – Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) after and between workouts, you will see faster performance improvement and improved endurance.
I’ve heard amino acids can be essential for working out. Do your supplements provide me with the necessary amounts of amino acids?
Amino acids are critical for the body, but there are many types of amino acids that all play different roles in the development and maintenance of your body. The amino acids most critical to building muscle and strength are the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), of which L-Leucine at a level of at least 2.5g per serving is the most critical to triggering muscle protein synthesis. Both the Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein and Recovery Blend products deliver at least that level of 2.5g of L-Leucine per serving.
What kinds of proteins are used in your supplements: whey, soy, casein or milk, egg or vegetable?
Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein and Recovery Blend products only use whey protein, the fastest digesting and highest leucine content protein available. Research suggests that whey protein postworkout has the most positive impact on muscle protein production. The Pre-Workout and Fish Oil products do not contain protein.
Why are carbohydrates so important? Do your supplements provide me with the required amounts?
Fast-absorbing, high-glycemic carbohydrates are very important immediately after working out because they trigger insulin production which, in turn, “opens the gates” of your muscles to allow nutrients to flow in, plus they are rapidly used to refuel muscle energy stores to prepare you for your next workout. When these types of carbohydrates are combined with protein, the result is much faster absorption of critical Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) into your muscles, thereby speeding recovery, lessening muscle soreness and speeding muscle gain. Pursuit Rx Recovery Blend provides this carb to protein blend.
What vitamins and minerals are most important to consume while in a workout program and do your supplements provide them?
You should consult with a nutrition expert on what vitamins and minerals you should be taking and when, as recommendations will vary depending upon what you consume within the context of your normal eating habits. Only the Pursuit Rx Fish Oil is fortified with Vitamins D & E.
Are your products safe for diabetics?
We strongly recommend that anyone with diabetes or any other health-related issue consult with their physician before taking any nutritional supplement.
Are your products gluten-free? Lactose-free? What if I’m a vegetarian?
All Pursuit Rx products are gluten-free. The Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein products are low lactose (1gm per serving), but do contain lactose. The Pursuit Rx Recovery Blend is very low in lactose, less than 1gm per serving. The rest of the Pursuit Rx product line is lactose-free. Whether our products meet the dietary needs of a vegetarian depends upon that person’s definition of being vegetarian. The Pursuit Rx Fish Oil obviously comes from fish. The Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein products and the Recovery Blend both contain whey protein, which derives from cow’s milk.[SW4]
Do I need to eat before and after my workout along with taking Pursuit Rx?
You do not need to eat in conjunction with taking any of the Pursuit Rx products, although we do recommend that you not take the Fish Oil gel caps on an empty stomach.
Why do I need to take Pursuit Rx supplements if I’m already eating a balanced diet?
Pursuit Rx products provide various benefits that most people cannot achieve via their regular diet.
Dietary complement: A 180 lb. person participating in strenuous workouts needs between 110- – 160 gm/day of protein. Most people who train vigorously find it very difficult to achieve the protein levels they need without complementing their diet with protein supplements.
Convenience: While there are many food items, like beef, chicken, and cottage cheese, that are good sources of protein and food items, like fatty fish (e.g. salmon), that are high in Omega 3s, many consumers find it very difficult to consume the required amount of protein and Omega 3s by relying on just those types of items because they live “on-the-go” lives and it is very inconvenient to have a chicken breast of fish filet while running from work to the gym or the gym to pick up the kids. Concentrated powders and gel caps that only require water to consume provide a high level of convenience.
Concentration: There are about 30g of whey protein in a gallon of milk. One serving of Pursuit Rx 100% Whey Protein provides 25g of whey protein without the additional calories, carbohydrates and some fat that you would get from consuming a gallon of milk, let alone the time it would take to drink that quantity of milk.
What is the best way to prepare myself so that I get the most benefit out of Pursuit Rx supplements?
Make sure that you and your trainer/coach has developed the right workout plan for you and your goals, then discuss how supplementation fits within your dietary plan.[SW5]
If I exercise multiple times a day, can I take Pursuit Rx multiple times a day as well?
You can take Pursuit Rx at various times throughout the day, but if you work out multiple times per day, we strongly recommend that you consult your trainer/coach and review your work out and nutrition plans to ensure hydration and optimal nutritional intake. Plus, rest between workouts and adequate sleep will be important for recovery and repair processes.
How long can I continually use Pursuit Rx?
There is no time limit for how long you can continually use Pursuit Rx products in conjunction with an active lifestyle.
Some of the marketing materials refer to the Pursuit Rx line-up as “clean”, what does that mean?/Will taking Pursuit Rx cause me to test positive for any banned substances?
We say that Pursuit Rx is “clean” because it is all-natural; free of hormones; free of artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners; and absolutely free of any banned substances. The Pursuit Rx products are made in a NSF GMP certified production facility and are undergoing certification by HFL Informed Choice to receive their “Trusted by Sport” seal confirming that the final products test free of all banned substances.
