About Purely For You

How does Purely For You work?
Purely For You guides you through a series of health, lifestyle, and exercise questions that are designed specifically to identify the supplements that are right for you. Our questionnaire was crafted in partnership with nutritional and medical experts to help provide you with the best possible recommendations to support your individual nutritional health.
How long does Purely For You take?

We offer two types of questionnaires. One is a focused questionnaire for those who know exactly what areas they want to target and will take approx 5 mins. We also have a comprehensive questionnaire for those who want a more overall assessment, this will take about 10 mins. You can take either one and you always have the option to come back and take the other.

How long will it take to get my Purely For You results and recommendations?
Your personalized recommendations will take a few seconds to process based on your unique responses to the questionnaire.
I didn't finish the questionnaire. Is there a way to continue from where I left off?
Yes! It’s simple. Just login again to continue where you left off, or start again, it’s up to you.
Can I retake the questionnaire?
You sure can. Once you log into your account, simply choose the ‘Retake Questionnaire’ button to take the survey again.
Once I get my supplement recommendations, how do I purchase them?
Once you’ve received your personalized list of recommendations, you can add any supplements you’d like to purchase to your cart. They can be added right from your recommendations list, then you can simply proceed to checkout. You can also edit or add to your selections, or save them to purchase later.
Can I purchase supplements that weren't specifically recommended for me?
Absolutely. After you’ve received your recommendations, you can also browse other Pure Encapsulation products and add other products you’re interested in to your shopping cart for you or your family.
What are the benefits of personalizing my supplement plan?
Health is personal. We believe your supplement recommendations should be, too. Simply put, your diet, lifestyle and health all impact what nutritional supplements will benefit you the most — so by answering a few questions about yourself, we can provide recommendations tailored to meet your individual needs. And our entire approach is backed by science, delivering supplement recommendations that are personalized for you, and verified by medical and nutritional experts.
Who do I call if I have questions or concerns?
You can contact our customer support team at 1-844-419-7870, Monday–Friday from 8:00am–4:30pm (MST), or you can email the team anytime at support@pureforyou.com.

Products purchased from unauthorized sellers do not come with the guarantee. Returns must be made within 30 days and require preauthorization. Any claims of shortage or damage must be made within 7 days of receiving package. All returns are subject to a 15% return fee.
How long will it take for my supplements to ship?

About Pure Encapsulations

Do you manufacture your own supplements?
Yes. We research, develop, and manufacture our products in our own state-of-the-art facility in Sudbury, Massachusetts.
What are your quality control procedures?
We are deeply committed to delivering the highest-quality supplements possible. To that end, ingredient quality, manufacturing excellence, and quality control are our most important priorities. We have high standards for ourselves, and our suppliers — following strict cGMP manufacturing procedures at our FDA-inspected plant.
What product testing does Pure Encapsulations do?

Pure Encapsulations has a rigorous testing policy:

  • Our raw materials are tested for identity, potency, microbial contaminants, heavy metals (including mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead), 32 solvent residues, and allergens
  • Herbal ingredients are tested for 70 different pesticide compounds and essential fatty acids and fish/krill oils are tested for dioxins, furans, PCBs, and other agents
  • Fish oils are tested for oxidation, PCBs and PCB-like compounds, dioxins, and furans
  • We also test for any specific contaminants known to be potential adulterants (for example, we test grapefruit seed for potential preservative contaminants)

Our testing is done through high-quality, third-party independent laboratories, such as Silliker, Eurofins, Intertek, and Advanced Laboratories, which are considered the gold standard in the industry.

At Pure Encapsulations, probiotics are verified with DNA testing. Our products, as well as our manufacturing and testing procedures, are thoroughly inspected twice annually by the NSF (an organization that inspects products for compliance with the FDA GMPs).

Where do you source your ingredients?
Pure ingredients are critical to the quality of our products. Our ingredients are selected for quality and purity, and are provided in highly bioavailable forms. We source premium raw materials from trusted industry leaders, including the finest suppliers from the U.S., France, Japan, Switzerland, Germany and Italy. Ingredients are tested for purity and potency by independent certified laboratories. Ingredient suppliers must meet rigorous testing and quality criteria to qualify as a Pure Encapsulations supplier.
Is everything in the capsule listed on the label?
Our nutritional supplements say what they do and do what they say, which means our product labels are transparent. Every ingredient we put into our products, even if it is just a trace amount, is listed on the label. Additionally, standardizations of herbal extracts are provided to indicate primary active marker compounds, and minerals are listed by their true elemental weights.
Do your products contain artificial ingredients or common food allergens, such as gluten?

Our supplements are FREE FROM unnecessary additives and many common allergens:

  • GMOs
  • Unnecessary additives
  • Artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners
  • Many common allergens like wheat, eggs, tree nuts, and peanuts

Most of our products are also free from soy, dairy, and preservatives, unless specifically noted on the label. Our products contain no hidden coatings, unnecessary excipients, binders, fillers, shellacs, artificial colors, artificial flavors or fragrance. We do not use magnesium stearate, preservatives, BHA or BHT in our products.

Do your products contain corn?
Many of our ingredients, including vitamin C, B12 and B2, are derived from corn dextrose fermentation. This process starts with isolating dextrose (a sugar, so it does not contain allergenic corn protein) from the corn, then feeding it to microorganisms. The nutrients produced by the microorganisms are then isolated and purified away from the starting materials. While no corn proteins or sugar remain in the final product (and we have tested with negative results), we do not routinely test for corn allergens, and therefore cannot guarantee its safety for someone with a corn allergy.
Are Pure Encapsulations ingredients organic?
While we do always try to source certified organic ingredients, we are often unable to find organic ingredients that meet our strict microbial standards. While many studies have found comparable nutrient levels between organic and non-organic crops, pesticide residues have been a concern. For this reason, each plant-derived ingredient is tested for a full panel of pesticides (approximately 70 compounds), in addition to the standard tests for identity, potency, solvent residues, heavy metals, and microbial contamination.
Do you use synthetic ingredients?
Pure Encapsulations does use some synthetic ingredients. As a company that specializes in FREE-FROM formulas, we do sometimes choose to use synthetically derived ingredients if they can be made to act identically to naturally derived compounds in the body. This limits the potential for allergy in our highly sensitive customer population. Ingredients that cannot be synthesized identically are typically derived from fermentation.
Do Pure Encapsulations products contain soy?

Most Pure Encapsulations products are soy-free; however, there are six ingredients used in the line derived from soy. Vitamin E derived from soybean oil (with the exception of Tocotrienols). While originally sourced from soybean oil, the oil is purified to remove all soy allergens and should be tolerable even to individuals with soy allergy.

Other products that contain soy are as follows:

Phytosterols sourced from soy target lipid metabolism and prostate health. Soy phytosterols do not contain significant soy protein or isoflavones, but are not recommended for individuals with soy allergy:

  • Beta-sitosterol (contains soy phytosterols)
  • CholestePure (contains soy phytosterols)
  • SP Ultimate (contains soy phytosterols)

Soy lecithin is used as the source of phospholipids (phytosome) to enhance absorption. Soy lecithin does not contain significant soy protein or isoflavones, but is not recommended for individuals with soy allergy:

  • Liposomal glutathione (contains soy lecithin)
  • Lycopene (contains soy lecithin)

  • Q-Gel (contains soy lecithin)
