Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question and can’t find the answer here, feel free to contact us.
Do you 3rd party test your products?
Yes, we conduct third party testing on most products. This includes testing for purity and heavy metals. Certificates of analysis for the most current batch are available on each product’s individual page. Please contact us if you have further questions regarding third party testing.
Why do you test for heavy metals?
Often during manufacturing of supplements and pharmaceuticals, residual metals are found in the final product. The metals are usually the result of poor maintenance and untrained operators. These metals can range from inert alloys to metals that can cause extreme health problems. We test for these metals as a quality checkpoint.
Do you use excipients?
Several products include a small amount of food grade maltodextrin (derived from corn) as filler. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved maltodextrin as a safe additive.
We use between .05-1% magnesium stearate on products with flow issues. This allows us to product a higher quality product with more consistency from capsule to capsule.
What are your capsules made of?
We currently use Capsugel V-Caps Plus. These capsules are vegan, meaning they include no animal products. We have also found that the absorption rate of these capsules is better than that of typical gelatin capsules.
Are your products FDA approved?
Pure Nootropics is an FDA registered company. We adhere to all guidelines of safety and quality. The statements on this site have not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
What is your refund policy?
If you are not satisfied with an item you have purchased, you may return the item within 30 days from the order date for a full refund of the purchase price (minus the shipping, handling, customs charges, etc.). This applies only when half or more of the order’s contents are returned to prevent fraud.
