Who We Are
VitaPLUR is the brainchild of two avid EDM festival goers with backgrounds in engineering and medicine. Prior to the creation of E-Boost Gum by VitaPLUR, we followed in the footsteps of festival veterans and took a tailored cocktail of supplements prior to entering a festival.
Knowing supplements in pill form are not allowed at events and the protective effects of antioxidants wore off within a few hours, we wanted to combine our expertise to engineer a product that would continue to promote health and wellness DURING festivals. E-Boost Gum by VitaPLUR is our solution - and in accordance to the PLUR vibe, we wanted to share our discovery with YOU!
Why gum, as opposed to a pill?
Sealed packs of gum are usually on the list of allowed items unlike pills. Why not chew gum that combines the benefits of supplements and sports drinks too! 😉
Chewing VitaPLUR E-Boost Gum will release magnesium, grapefruit extract, vitamin C and electrolytes with your saliva. Research has shown that many supplements can be absorbed with greater potency by the tissues under your tongue and cheeks, which have great vasculature (lots of blood vessels). Delivering magnesium this way sends it straight to the problem area first: your jaw muscles!
Absorption of pills via the gut undergoes first pass effect, a concept describing that the concentration of a substance is greatly reduced before it reaches your blood circulation.
How many pieces would I have to chew?
Start chewing the first piece about 45 minutes before experiencing intense physical and mental stimulation. We recommend chewing each piece for at least 15 minutes to release the maximum amount of active ingredients. Replace with a fresh piece every hour or as needed for jaw relaxation. Typically this is 4 pieces total, not to exceed 8 pieces per day.
Nothing I’ve tried fixes clenching, how can this?
VitaPLUR E-Boost Gum is infused with magnesium that is slowly released as you chew. Since magnesium can be absorbed through the sublingual (tissue underneath your tongue) and buccal (cheek) area, your jaws will be amongst the first to utilize it. Magnesium is necessary for muscle fibers to relax, thus providing the jaw muscles with sufficient magnesium will stop clenching/grinding/gurning.
Is this all I would need for a festival supplement?
We recommend continuing to drink plenty of water when you are at the festival! Do not exceed 0.8-1 liter / hr of water consumption.
Does it have 5-HTP?
No, VitaPLUR E-Boost Gum does not contain 5-HTP.
We recommend not preloading with 5-HTP because it may put you at risk for serotonin syndrome.
Is this allowed in festivals?
VitaPLUR's blister pack design provides it with a tamper proof seal for each individual piece. This means it continues to pass the seal requirement of most festivals for multiple days of use so you should not need a fresh pack each day. As long as gum is on the allowed item list, you should be able to bring VitaPLUR with you through security.
Can I take pre or post festival supplements if I have taken VitaPLUR?
You may continue to take your previously made cocktail of supplements before and after the festival. VitaPLUR is tailored to provide exactly what you need while you are at the festival. You can’t take other medication/supplement pills into the festival with you through event security. Check with your doctor prior to consuming grapefruit juice however.
What is the difference between the two products?
A new longer lasting tangerine flavor and the original grapefruit-citrus flavor with extra furanocoumarins are offered. The tangerine E-Boost Gum offers the best protection against jaw clenching through an improved delivery system. The Xtra-Grapefruit E-Boost Gum offers a higher concentration of furanocoumarins (active ingredient of grapefruit, and powerful antioxidant).
