Pure Labs Turbo….


Pure Labs Turbo separates itself from the rest of pre-workout formulas with its unorthodox approach and use of conventional ingredients combined with novel compounds. Turbo is a testament to real research and development that thinks outside the box, looking at the overall picture rather than being short sighted and relying on general belief.

These alternative uses require much smaller dosages than commonly thought, thus making Turbo a scientifically affective product at a price everyone can afford. Why pay more for inferior formulation? Turbo is a true innovation in an industry full of generic copies.


Creatine Monohydrate

While other products use this scientifically proven ingredient for its muscle cell saturation and ATP recycling mechanism, Pure Labs recognises its potential as a neuromodulator and true neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters allow the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across synapses. In layman’s terms, creatine has the potential to improve the communication between neurons and thus between your brain and your body and most importantly – your muscles.

Creatine has also shown to be a neuroprotective agent in a growing number of research regarding neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases.  It has the ability to reduce neuronal cell loss, improving central nervous system efficiency.

These benefits are important when supplementing with any type of stimulant as prolonged use can induce neuronal damage.


Carnosine is synthesized from Beta Alanine and buffers H+ ions. High intensity exercise elevates the  amount of positive hydrogen ions (H+),  putting your muscles in an acidic state which increases lactic acid build up, decreases strength and causes fatigue. By buffering H+ ions, carnosine normalises the pH balance, improving muscular performance.  Beta alanine is also implicated in being neuroprotective, a quality great in any stimulant based product.


An acetylated derivative of the amino acid L-tyrosine. It is an a biochemical precursor in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine which increases alertness, focus and concentration. It also reduce blood pressure during times of stress.


Taurine is a trophic factor in CNS development. It is involved in several physiological actions in the brain, including neuroprotection, osmoregulation and neurotransmission. It has been shown to significantly increase cell viability inhibited by stimulant use and reduces apoptosis (cell death) via the mTOR signaling pathway.

Mucuna Pruriens

Containing an alkaloid which is a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamin, it stimulates the hypothalamus and pituitary to release and increases the level of hypothalamic growth hormone-releasing hormone. Dopamine regulates the immune function which is vital as excessive ingestion of stimulants reduces the body’s immunity via production of cortico-adrenal insufficiency. L-DOPA also protects against dopamine neuronal cell death and increased the number and branching of neurite processes.

Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate

AAKG may bind to ammonia in in muscle cells, converting ammonia into glutamic acid, eliminating the toxin ammonia from the body. Those who participate in an active fitness lifestyle usually consume a high protein diet, which increases the production of ammonia, a toxin that can reduce athletic performance dramatically.

Trimethylglycine (TMG)

Also known as Betaine Anhydrous, it supports cardiovascular function by lowering homocysteine levels. It does this by donating its methyl group to a molecule of homocysteine, converting it to the  non-toxic amino acid, methionine and then into S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe). This increase in SAMe however was the primary inclusion of TMG in Turbo due to it being a nonspecific antidepressant. This may help to inhibit the depressive state many encounter when taking potent stimulants.

D-Aspartic Acid

DAA as it’s more commonly referred as, is one of the most proven natural testosterone boosting ingredients. While that benefit is a fantastic quality to have, it is not it’s intention of use here. DAA is also a great libido enhancer, a quality that becomes more aware of importance by people who suffer from libido loss when using strong stimulants. One other quality most are not aware of, is DAA being a neurotransmitter, triggering signal transduction by increasing the second messenger cAMP. Overall a great addition for CNS protection.

Agmatine Sulfate 

A vasodilator that is included to counteract the vasoconstrictive effects of stimulant usage. Most notably help alleviate erectile dysfunction that many experience when supplementing with potent stimulants.  It also modulates nitric oxide, a molecule used by macrophages. As mentioned earlier, Turbo increases dopamine levels, which in turn is a precursor to norepinephrine and epinephrine, (adrenaline). Adrenaline suppresses the nitric oxide response of macrophages. Macrophages are a type of white blood cell that ingest and destroy bacteria. They also clear cellular debris such as dead cells that contain microbes, such as bacteria or viruses. They are vital to the immune system and play a large role in recovery.

Caffeine Anhydrous

Caffeine works by blocking adenosine receptors in the brain. Adenosine is a central nervous system neuromodulator that has specific receptors. When adenosine binds to its receptors, neural activity slows down, and you feel sleepy.  As caffeine reduces the ability of adenosine to bind to the receptors, the natural “braking” action of adenosine is inhibited, and neural activity therefore speeds up.

The stimulated nerve cells then release the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline), which increases blood flow to muscles, improving the transportation of oxygen throughout the body, enhancing performance. Caffeine also increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, enhancing cognitive functioning capabilities and neuromuscular coordination.

While many brands stop using caffeine in fear of appearing generic, it would be stuid to do so. Caffeine is one of the most proven ergogenic aids with countless benefits. Why would anyone want to turn their back on proven science?

Dendrobium Nobile Extract

Used traditionally in Chinese cultures as one of the 50 key traditional herbs, Dendrobium has a vast array of bodily healthy benefits ranging from suppression of disease mutagens, damage inhibition of UV radiation, carcinogens and bacteria and protects and even helps repair pancreatic structure (in turn positively impacting insulin functioning and sensitivity). It is also a potent mood enhancer and stimulant.

Dendrobium acts as a stimulant by increasing the functionality of the central nervous system via monoamine transporter inhibition/reversal, allowing for higher concentrations of Phenylethylamine to circulate in the brain which has strong actions on epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine release for fast-acting energy and extreme increases in mental focus.

Dendrobium has a ‘feel good’ factor which is caused by its effects on dopamine release which is a key neurotransmitter involved in mood and cognition. It also helps decrease oxidative stress, delays neuromuscular fatigue and even spares muscular glycogen stores thereby increasing fatty acid usage for energy. This improves energy, reaction time, increased blood and oxygen transportation to the muscles, intense mental focus and improved body fat metabolisation.

It can also increase recovery by easing the ability to breath. It might sound strange, but it’s actually true. After an exhausting workout, you’ll find yourself catching your breath much better post workout.


An established anti-inflammatory,  analgesic and anti-depressant that increases locomotor activity. This elevates your stamina and ability to handle a demanding lifestyle. The great thing about theacrine is that it does not induce locomotor sensitization or tolerance over prolong use.  Just like caffeine, it is also an adenosine receptor antagonist, sharing its benefits.


L-Theanine is an amino acid which is known to block the binding of L-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors in the brain. It is included for its ability to help prevent some of the adverse effects of caffeine such as potential headaches and anxiety. It has a synergetic affect when used with caffeine, improving cognitive function and increases concentration and perception of alertness.

As you are clearly aware by now, every ingredient in Turbo is there for a reason, to compliment other ingredients use and improve the overall effectiveness of the product.
