Review of Purple Wraath by Controlled Labs


Purple Wraath is a product from Controlled Labs used to assist in workout recovery.  I typically take it before and after my workouts. My soreness and overall recovery was literally cut in half since I’ve been on Purple Wraath. In addition to using it for intra-workout while weight training, I use it during cardio to prevent catabolism and promote protein synthesis and recovery.

Product Claims vs. Personal Results

  • Fast Absorption/fast acting
    • As far as absorption goes, I didn’t notice any digestive issues, and the ‘tingling’ from the beta alanine is noticeable within minutes.
    • Purple Wraath contains an excellent ingredient profile of both EAAs and BCAAs.
  • Caffeine-free ergogenic formula
    • It was nice to find such a great formula that doesn’t rely on caffeine to make the user ‘feel’ the product. The beta-alanine can cause a tingly feeling, but it is better than the buzz and crash of caffeine.  Furthermore, caffeine causes a catabolic effect which would be counterproductive in a product like this.
  • Delicious Tangy Grape Flavor
    • The flavor of this product isn’t the best tasting thing on the planet, but it wasn’t bad either. It is pretty impressive for a product that isn’t loaded with tons of sugar.
  • Natural Anabolic Environment
    • The product ingredients are natural, and BCAA/EAA’s contained here have been shown to prevent catabolism and muscle breakdown during workouts, all while promoting protein synthesis.
  • Increase athletic performance, endurance, focus, stamina, and muscle recovery
    • This is where Purple Wraath shines. I put it to the test during a 6 week long cutting phase including 2 workout sessions per muscle group a week and 4 sessions of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Not only did it help with the retention of my lean mass on a cutting cycle, but I was experiencing some of the best recovery that I’ve ever had. The endurance on my HIIT cardio was also noticeably increased as well.
  • Legal, safe, and effective for both men and women
    • The ingredient profile is legit, containing natural, non hormonal ingredients, which prove to be safe and legal.
  • Stimulate metabolism to reduce body fat
    • It’s hard to judge a product’s effectiveness when it comes to stimulating metabolism, but I did in fact notice that it made my cutting cycle go considerably smoother.
  • Explosive strength, power, and energy
    • Once again, it is hard to judge a products effectiveness in this category because many factors can have a hand in it, especially while on a cut. Though from my personal experience my strength was maintained and even went up on some lifts.
  • Increase or maintain muscle mass whether cutting or bulking
    • True to its word, it fulfilled its purpose when it came to helping maintain my muscle while cutting. There was also noticeable muscle fullness and pumps for longer periods post workout compared to before use.
Overall Product Rating:
  • Mixability in a shaker/sports bottle: 9
  • Mixability in a glass with spoon: 6
    • I’ve found that it mixes well in a bottle, but is difficult when mixing in a glass with a spoon.
  • Taste: 10
    • Excellent grape taste without any added sugar.
  • Pricing: 10
    • I got the 90 serving container and feel that it’s more than worth the rough $50 I paid for it.
  • Overall: 9.9
    • Overall, I am extremely please with Purple Wraath and I honestly feel that Controlled Labs outdid themselves. Not only does it contain EAA’s and BCAA’s, but also Beta Alanine, Citrulline and a couple of other beneficial ingredients.
