Last month, I acquired Controlled Labs’ Purple Wraath supplement from the Bodybuilding.com store and implemented it in my supplementation routine. I needed a good EAA/BCAA (Essential Amino Acids, Branched-Chain Amino Acids) supplement and was told Purple Wraath would deliver the goods. Checking out some reviews on the web, I decided to give it a go and ordered a tub. Within a week and a half, I received my shipment from the BB store and tried it out. Here are my results and a mini-review of my usage so far.
First, I need to get it out: the taste is horrible. I mixed half a scoop of the powder into a tall glass of water and immediately took note of the awful chemical smell. Forcing myself to drink it anyway, I must’ve reached half way until I decided to stop drinking it because I couldn’t take it. “Could I have gotten a bad batch?” I thought to mysel. After reading user opinions on the taste issue, I was told to mix the scoop with a lot of cold water and let it sit in the fridge for half an hour before I consume it. I was also recommended to mix it in with some Green Magnitude. I tried the first suggestion and it worked very well. I decided to put it in the free shaker bottle I had received with my order and try it out at the gym. I am now craving for this stuff like mad. 🙂 So, for whoever is having a hard time with the taste, let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before you consume it. You’ll thank me when you do.
On to the supplements efficacy: this stuff seems to be working, but it’s hard to say whether it’s the Purple Wraath or Green Magnitude giving me the energy. I consume Purple Wraath over the period of my workout, from start to finish. Halfway through my workout, I can say I feel more energized than I first started, but that can also be the adrenaline rush going through my body. It hasn’t been that long since I started taking Purple Wraath, so perhaps I’m talking a bit too early when it comes to results. So for now, I should probably stay neutral on whether it works or not. I will be posting my final results this supplement within a month or two.
