Invest in a decent milligram scale that’s accurate to at least +/- 3 milligrams. The dosage range for some nootropic supplements is as low as 10 milligrams, like in the case of noopept. Small scoopulas of various sizes with approximate measurements are also available but be aware that the weight for different compounds may be different so this isn’t always a perfectly accurate metric.
Long Term Storage of Nootropic SupplementsIf you’re going to buy in bulk another good investment to make is some form of long term storage. Our heat seal aluminum foil bags are a great solution as they are pharmaceutical grade. A more expensive choice would be glass reagent jars of amber or blue colour. The coloured jars block out harmful UV rays that can degrade the chemicals and cause a loss in potency over time. To save time you could pre-measure doses for the week and store them in HDPE bottles or the foil pharma bag as opposed to daily opening and exposing your bulk supplements to the elements and potential hydration and oxidation. Silica gel packets are also a great idea for increasing shelf life on your investment. Cool, dark and dry is best for any long term storage so inside an airtight apothecary bottle in the refrigerator’s crisper is a good idea. Regardless of where you store it, adding several desiccant packets is always worthwhile.Another way to save time and increase convenience is through encapsulating your supplements. Consumer grade products are available like Cap’M Quick and the Capsule Machine that are inexpensive and great for saving time and trouble as you can encapsulate all your supplements for easy storage. For those who wish to save the time and trouble of dealing with the raw supplement pre-bottled capsules is a great choice. Focus Supplements offers several of our products in encapsulated or tablet form such as 5-HTP, Alpha GPC, and AMP Citrate,

This potent antioxidant can prevent free-radical-induced damage in the neurons of the brain, and helps maintain an effective blood brain barrier. What many people don’t know is that there’s actually an entire class of neuroprotective antioxidant molecules, many of which have gained popularity for their nootropic benefits. . . . .
