We are committed to going above and beyond industry standards and FDA requirements for safety and quality.
Our manufacturing facilities are certified by GMP ISO 9000 quality management standards, using the industry best for our airtight seals, desiccants, and equipment. We batch test every raw ingredient coming in using the most cutting edge methods of HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography) and MS (mass spectrometry).
As a secondary measure, we open every 100th bottle and verify that the ingredients in the capsules matches the manufacturer’s Certificate of Analysis (CoA).
We do small manufacturing batches of our products, reducing the amount of time between manufacture and delivery to optimize freshness. We focus on these dimensions when choosing our ingredients:
Science: All our ingredients are chosen based on a strong empirical basis of their safety and efficacy. We take into account several kinds of research: Phase II & III university and clinical trials, strong quantified self research data (e.g. on racetams like noopept), and over 40+ years international research on nootropic stack formulation.
Sourcing: We use only the highest quality ingredients. Many come from patented sources and are considered best in class. (e.g. BioPerine piperine, pTeroPure pterostilbene)
Purity: All our ingredients are tested for heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides, and other forms of environmental toxin, and ensured to be at levels far lower than FDA GMPs requirements. No silica, magnesium stearate, animal, or toxic binders or fillers are used.
Potency: All our nutraceuticals are refined to the highest potency and bioavailability commercially possible. All our herbs and botanicals are standardized for potency and purity of active ingredients.
Form: All our nutraceuticals are in the most biologically active form for the purpose that we intend them. (i.e. methylated, acetylated, phosphorylated, L-form, D-form, etc). The form of the nutrient makes orders of magnitude difference as to its effectiveness, which is a category in which we'll never compromise. These uncompromising expectations, putting a premium on efficacy and quality, accounts for the higher pricing of our product as compared to many cheaper products created with lower standards for safety, premium ingredients, and scientific literacy regarding the product's profile and thus its ability to achieve top tier efficacy.
