Slinshot by Purus Labs 90ct


Purus Labs SLINshot™ represents a truly novel product stemming from an exciting field of research amongst dietary supplements involving blood glucose disposal and nutrient uptake into skeletal muscle. This product has applications far reaching, from aiding the combined 80.6 million people in the United States diagnosed with diabetes and pre-diabetes (ADA with blood sugar control to increasing athletic performance/recovery through enhanced nutrient uptake and potential glycogen (the stored form of glucose widely used as an energy source during moderate to high intensity exercise) storage. We will, for now, focus on SLINshot™ as it pertains to the athlete.

It is widely accepted and practiced within the athletic community to consume a liquid nutrient supplement immediately postworkout. This beverage is typically comprised of a large dose of high glycemic carbohydrate, a moderate amount of protein, and additional amino acids such as creatine. There is a plethora of available scientific research supporting this practice as it relates to enhanced exercise recovery through increasing glycogen resysnthesis and increasing protein synthesis. The main goal of this beverage is to immediately spike circulating insulin levels in order to rapidly replenishing glycogen stores and drive nutrients into muscle tissue initiating anabolism through protein synthesis. It should be understood that insulin plays a major role in activating the aforementioned process. Specifically, insulin is secreted from the pancreatic beta cells in response to a postprandial (after meal) rise in blood glucose. Insulin then binds the insulin receptor and promotes a cascade of “signaling” events that ultimately allows for the “translocation” of glucose-4 transport protein (GLUT4) from an intracellular site to the cell surface. It is GLUT4 that is chiefly involved in glucose uptake into tissue when in the fed state (e.g., post exercise feeding). While most well-trained athletes tolerate such high intake of carbohydrate post exercise due to a heightened state of insulin sensitivity observed post exercise along with an increase in GLUT4 activity, some athletes may want to amplify these processes by using SLINshot™.

Benefits Include:

  • Increased nutrient absorption and utilization within muscle tissue
  • Enhanced energy utilization and glycogen resynthesis
  • Improved carbohydrate metabolism
  • Enhanced post receptor insulin signaling
  • Faster recovery from strenuous exercise
  • Diminished free radical production
  • Nutrient partitioning
