FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY DO I NEED A PRE-WORKOUT SUPPLEMENT/AID?
A proper pre-workout aid can transform your workout rapidly and significantly. pureWOD PRE was specifically formatted to provide people who are looking to increase strength, burn fat, improve performance and endurance, decrease muscle fatigue and work longer. Sounds like magic, doesn't it? It's not - it is just well researched and properly dosed. Most supplements use too little and too few active ingredients to make a difference.
Check out our active ingredients and read more why we use them HERE.
WHY DO YOU USE BEEF AND NOT WHEY OR EGG IN pureWOD BUILD?
Whey is a byproduct of dairy and eggs have certain proteins, of which either many people are sensitive to. Beef is the one protein that can be shared by all.
Not only does BUILD contain a great protein source, you also get all of the collagen, gelatin and micronutrients as you would in eating a piece of steak. This helps you not only build muscle but also repair joint surfaces, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments.

I'VE NOTICED MY pureWOD PRE/BUILD FOAMS WHEN I SHAKE IT - WHAT GIVES?
Great question! We don't use any of the binding agents or fillers that other supplement companies do. This may prevent it from mixing perfectly without any sort of foaming when shaken, but you may have peace of mind knowing that you're not getting a bunch of unnecessary chemicals that are known to be gut irritants. The foam is okay to drink straight down and does not change the effects of pureWOD PRE or BUILD. Waiting a second or two will allow the foam to settle.
Since PRE and BUILD are so clean, they are very easy mixed by simply stirring or swirling rather than violently shaken if you want to minimize foam.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
YES! Of course we do. Chose your country and enter your address to see if we ship to you! Shipping times typically range from 7-14 days.
Unfortunately this option isn't available for our monthly subscriptions.
HELP! MY FACE AND HANDS ARE TINGLING!
Not to worry! This is just the beta-alanine at work. If you're new to pre-workouts and haven't had an actual effective dose of beta-alanine before, you may notice a tingling sensation commonly referred to as the "beta tingle". This is caused by stimulation to your nerve endings and the buffering of hydrogen ions to where you need them. The sensation should subside within 2-3 weeks of use.
More information about beta-alanine can be found at our Ingredients page.
WHAT ARE THESE LITTLE WHITE THINGS IN THE PACKAGE?
Great question. These are desiccant packs added in to absorb any moisture that collects in the bag after you open. This is important to prevent clumping and optimize mixing of the product. Don't worry, though! We wouldn't ruin our standards of chemical free products with this addition. All of our desiccant packs are made from 100% all-natural clay, which absorb just as fine as other leading brands using silica gel and other odd chemicals.
YOU ADDED "NATURAL FLAVOR" -- THIS WILL PROBABLY KILL ME, RIGHT?
Let's not get too ahead of ourselves here! After sampling thousands of cups and selling thousands of bags of the old version, the one consistent feedback we received is that the flavor needed to be better.
