Dr. Tripp: Purify Contains a Tsunami of Powerful Ingredients

An incredible amount of first-hand and second-hand research has been conducted for Purify to come into existence. It’s a crowning piece for many of the scientists working to create Nature’s Sunshine Products’ and Synergy WorldWide’s world-class health solutions. This is especially true for the brain behind the Elite Health formulas, Dr. Matthew Tripp.

Dr. Tripp, our Chief Scientific Officer, describes Purify as having a healthy “whirlwind” or “tsunami” effect, as many potent ingredients, backed by extensive research, combine to create a force within the human microbiome that prompts fast-acting results. Clinical research that will further support the effectiveness of the Purify Kit and program is underway in The Hughes Center for Research and Innovation.

The Purify Kit includes a one-week supply of five products—Biome DT, Biome Shake, Biome Actives, Body Prime, and ProArgi-9+—which were created to address the microbiome, a complex ecosystem of microbes living within each of us. The microbiome suffers due to toxic environments, nutrient-stripped foods, and a stressful, sedentary lifestyle. This suffering results in an unhealthy balance of good and bad bacteria, which ultimately impacts every system in the body.

Together, the Purify Kit products provide clinically formulated nutrition for an unbalanced microbiome. Let’s take a closer look at what these products have to offer:

Biome DT

Biome DT is a patent-pending drink mix that combines psyllium, broccoli, inulin, glutamine, and zinc to support microbiome purification for a new beginning to Elite Health. Biome DT is gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly and utilizes distinct pathways to support the microbiome.

Biome Shake

Biome Shake was carefully formulated to support proper balance in the microbiome. Biome Shake is high in vegetable protein with a blend of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and beneficial fats from sources such as flax seed and borage oil. The formula has a vegetable base featuring broccoli and clean pea protein.

Biome Actives

Biome Actives is an innovative formula that contains inulin and 1 billion colony-forming units (CFU) of Bacillus coagulans (a lactic acid-forming bacterial species) per capsule, which supports a favorable environment for beneficial gut bacteria. Biome Actives supports the balance of the microbiome in the digestive system.

Body Prime

Containing a significant amount of magnesium, Body Prime supports normal energy metabolism and valuable electrolyte balance, which prime your system to initiate your next health program. Body Prime also features an apple pectin and prune powder blend. Together, apple pectin and prune powder comprise the majority of one capsule’s contents. Like magnesium, these familiar fruit sources provide a variety of benefits. These ingredients are non-GMO and are approved for daily use, making this a gentle formula derived from familiar fruit sources.


The starring ingredient in ProArgi-9+ is l-arginine, a compound studied by many scientists who tout its health benefits. ProArgi-9+ contains six essential vitamins: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and folic acid. Each plays a vital role in supporting the body’s overall performance. Vitamin C supports the normal functioning of the nervous and immune systems while also supporting proper energy levels and normal psychological function. Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and folic acid share a few health benefits with Vitamin C, but also support red blood cell formation and homocysteine metabolism. Vitamin K has a set of its own benefits, including supporting bone health and blood coagulation.
