What You Should Know
Purple InTrain is an in-workout powdered supplement by Controlled Labs. The anabolic supplement offers carbohydrates and protein to support muscle growth and recovery during a workout. This supplement is not to be confused with a pre-workout or post-workout shake mix. Vitamins and electrolytes are also added to the formula to enhance muscle gains. Controlled Labs is known for high priced supplements and Purple InTrain is no different. The supplement is priced $76.99 on the official website. Other retailers online sell the same supplement for at least 50% off this price.
List of Ingredients
Purple ProCho Complex: Highly Processed Waxy Maize Starch, Hydrolyzed Whey Protein.
PurpleBolic Complex: L-Leucine, Beta Alanine, L-Glycine, Banaba Extract.
Purple vitAmin Complex: Potassium Gluconate, Sodium Chloride, Pyridoxine HCI, Inositol Nicotinate, Methylcobalamin.
In the ProCho Complex, Purple InTrain packs in both the protein and carbohydrates. There are only five grams of carbohydrates per serving so the carb impact is minimal at best. Typically carbohydrates are consumed in the post-workout shake so this small amount does not significantly impact muscle growth. Hydrolyzed whey protein is easy to digest offering quick fuel for muscles.
The PurpleBolic Complex claims to support muscle growth with anabolic ingredients. L-Leucine is an essential amino acid meaning the body cannot make it so it must be consumed. It is utilized in muscle tissue and lab studies have proven L-Leucine can slow the breakdown of muscles (in rats). No human studies have backed up this claim. Beta Alanine precursor’s carnosine. This may cause an increase in carnosine in muscles leading to a decrease in muscle fatigue and increase in work done by muscles.
L-Glycine is a natural source of creatine that may work to decrease the breakdown of muscles during workouts. It has also been used to treat depression. Banaba Extract is typically used as a natural appetite suppressant. We could find no connection with bodybuilding or muscle growth. The Purple vitAmin Complex is pretty self explanatory. The label reveals how each of these ingredients is used and none are directly related to muscle gain or bodybuilding.
- Several proven ingredients for bodybuilding.
- Sufficient vitamin complex to support overall health.
- No support for weight loss.
- The appetite suppressant does not have much place in a bodybuilding supplement.
- The price is far too high on the official website.
Purple InTrain may be an effective bodybuilding supplement. Dieters, however, will not have much luck with the powder even though it is extremely low calorie. There are no fat burners or ingredients to boost metabolism and that is what a dieter is looking for in a supplement. In place of Purple InTrain, dieters may wish to seek out a supplement with proven ingredients like green tea and caffeine.
