 ABB's Hardcore Essentials Pure Pro


ABB's Hardcore Essentials Pure Pro provides 40 grams of high quality protein rich in three BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) leucine, valine and isoleucine. This post-workout protein drink mix includes a proprietary blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, 18 amino acids and three essential minerals (calcium, sodium and potassium). Pure Pro is formulated for hardcore athletes to promote muscle gain and recovery after challenging workouts and performance.

Whey protein is a major protein in milk. Whey proteins contain an optimal concentration of all of the amino acids that promote positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein). Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are necessary for the growth, repair, and maintenance of muscle.

Muscle protein levels can become depleted after exercise and workouts. Whey protein can rebuild amino acids and protein levels after training and athletic performance for maximum muscle growth and recovery.

Pure Pro contains 18 essential amino acids including 4,470 mg of BCAAs and 3,360 mg of glutamine. BCAAs make up about one-third of the protein in muscles. The body can't make BCAAs from other substances so they must be supplied from the diet or supplements. Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid if demand for glutamine exceeds the body's ability to produce it.
Intense workouts and athletic performance can deplete BCAA and glutamine levels, making supplementation necessary. BCAAs and glutamine supply the necessary nutrients to promote muscle growth, endurance, repair and recovery.


Each serving of Pure Pro contains 40 grams of high quality protein and 4 grams of carbohydrates. Pure Pro is instantized to conveniently mix with a spoon.

Pure Pro has the following benefits:

  • Provides 40 grams of high quality protein
  • Promotes positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein)
  • Whey protein boosts muscle gain
  • BCAAs and glutamine promote muscle repair and recovery


People who are allergic to dairy products should avoid whey protein.
Although few side effects have been reported with the short-term use of amino acids, mega-dosing may result in potential side effects. This may include excess nitrogen to be excreted as urea in urine, which has been linked with reduced kidney function.

Large amounts of arginine can lead to diarrhea, weakness and nausea. Arginine may promote viral growth and replication, such as genital herpes.

It has not been determined if long-term use of tyrosine in large amounts (more than 1,000 mg per day) is safe. Long-term use of tyrosine should be monitored by a health care professional.

People with pre-existing medical conditions such as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), depression, Reye's Syndrome or herpes should not supplement with Pure Pro without consulting a physician.
