What is Human Performance Optimization?
Human Performance Optimization is Performance Lab® ’s ultimate mission: The belief that humans can leverage the vast untapped power of natural and synthetic nutrients to transcend their current mind-body limitations and achieve a higher state of overall biological function.
How are Performance Lab® supplements different from other products on the market?
Performance Lab® is the evolution of nutrition: A new take on supplementation designed to unlock next-level human performance. To realize this goal, Performance Lab® extensively researches, tests and formulates advanced nutritional supplements that upgrade function across performance-oriented biological pathways.
Performance Lab® formulas feature nutrient combinations that are not seen in any other products on the market.
To ensure that our formulas are empowered to excel, Performance Lab® uses best-in-class ingredients, cutting-edge forms and nutritional breakthroughs – including BioGenesis™ nature-identical vitamin and mineral essentials, standardized botanicals, and many premium branded nutrient forms.
What are BioGenesis™ vitamin and mineral essentials?
Performance Lab® developed BioGenesis™ to unlock the full performance-enhancing potential of vitamins and minerals.
Hydroponically grown on cultures in a sterile lab setting, BioGenesis™ uses patented technology that replicates nutritional genesis in nature. As a result, BioGenesis™ vitamins and minerals are supplied in a matrix of natural cofactors including probiotics, fiber, enzymes and antioxidants that enhance their bioavailability and health-supportive activity.
In addition to their superior potency, lab-grown BioGenesis™ nutrients are safer, cleaner, and more eco-friendly than conventional vitamins and minerals.
BioGenesis™ vitamins and minerals are available exclusively in Performance Lab® formulas. More on BioGenesis™
What are standardized herbs, and why does Performance Lab® use them?
Standardization is a process where herbs are lab-calibrated to guarantee an exact level of their most active, health-promoting compounds.
Many factors can affect an herb’s potency, such as poor growing seasons, soil quality, time of harvest and environmental toxins. Standardization ensures that despite these variables, the herb will consistently deliver the exact botanical active ingredients that work best to support health.
Since standardization supplies customized, precise levels of active compounds, it can also be used to increase an herb’s overall potency and improve an herb’s safety.
What are branded ingredients and why does Performance Lab® use them?
Branded ingredients are patented, trademarked forms of nutrients that offer performance advantages over plain nutrient forms.
Branded ingredients are typically more potent than their plain counterparts, and may feature advanced delivery systems and enhanced bioavailability. Some branded ingredients are backed by well-designed human clinical trials demonstrating their effectiveness and safety.
Not all branded ingredients are exceptional, but Performance Lab® has taken the time to identify and source the best branded ingredients in the world, which are proudly featured in our formulas.
Some Performance Lab® dosages look smaller than other products. Why is this?
Some ingredients in Performance Lab® supplements are concentrated or standardized to a high degree of potency that delivers more active compounds in a smaller dosage than plain ingredient forms with larger dosages.
In other cases, ingredients in Performance Lab® supplements may be combined to produce synergy, in which two or more ingredients work together and amplify each other’s bioactivities for greater results at a lower dosage.
Other Performance Lab® ingredients may work in harmony with the body to increase production of natural compounds, like hormones or neurotransmitters, rather than supplying those compounds directly in a big dose.
In all cases, Performance Lab® supplements are precisely calibrated to supply balanced, results-oriented doses that are safe, well-tolerated, and most importantly, highly effective. Bigger doses are not always better, and in some cases may be risky.
What does a Performance Lab® “clean label” mean?
Performance Lab® supplements are the World’s Cleanest Formulas . To make this claim, we only use ingredients of unparalleled purity, while avoiding all unnecessary additives.
The cleanliness of our formulas is reflected on our labels: Performance Lab® supplements contain NO soy, egg, fish, shellfish, dairy, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, or other allergens; are non-GMO and non-irradiated; and are free of gluten, caffeine, synthetic additives, artificial colors, preservatives and banned substances.
Look under “Other Ingredients” on Performance Lab® formulas’ supplement facts, and you will see that for most of our products, the only “Other Ingredient” is the capsule or softgel itself. That means these Performance Lab® supplements are filled to the max with 100% health-enhancing nutrition, nothing more, nothing less.
Why does Performance Lab® avoid artificial additives?
Not all additives are bad. Sometimes additives are needed to improve a supplement’s quality. For example, adding flow agents to a powdered nutrient can help to improve manufacturing quality and efficiency. Sometimes adding a colorant can help to protect nutrients that are light-sensitive. Performance Lab® only uses additives when they are absolutely necessary to enhance our supplements. In those rare cases, we will only use natural additives.
Performance Lab® always avoids artificial additives because they may carry some risks that, in our opinion, just aren’t worth it. Artificial colors have been linked to nerve issues, DNA damage and health concerns; artificial flavors have been tied to blood sugar and weight concerns; and artificial preservatives may hurt friendly flora and lead to digestive health concerns. Performance Lab® feels these synthetics have no place in supplements that are intended to support health.
Are Performance Lab® supplements safe?
Yes. Performance Lab® takes great care throughout each phase creation to ensure that our supplements enhance your health and performance safely and naturally.
We start by using premium quality ingredients that are backed by clinical research demonstrating safety. We then supply those ingredients using a minimal-effective-dosing philosophy that delivers all of the benefits you deserve without the potential risks of mega-dosing.
Performance Lab® always shows all dosages of every ingredient, so you can know exactly how much of each you are taking. We feel that sharing this information is an important safety step that is neglected by supplement brands that instead choose to hide their dosages in proprietary blends.
Performance Lab® products undergo dozens of quality control and quality assurance checks before, during, and after the manufacturing process, all of which further strengthen our safety profile. All Performance Lab® formulas are also validated by an independent third party auditing company that assays finished product to ensure purity, potency, label accuracy and overall quality.
For more information on the many safety checks that go into each Performance Lab® supplement, visit our manufacturing arm website at www.optinutra.com.
Are Performance Lab® supplements legal?
Yes. Performance Lab® supplements are made with legal ingredients only. Performance Lab® supplements are also banned substance free, avoiding any and all compounds that have been flagged by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). This means that amateur, collegiate and professional athletes can take Performance Lab® supplements with confidence.
Do I need to cycle Performance Lab® supplements?
For the most part, no – you do not need to cycle Performance Lab® supplements because they are designed to be safe for long-term daily use. The one exception to this rule is Performance Lab® Sport. Due to the hormonal bioactivities associated with this formula, for best results we suggest cycling Performance Lab® Sport T-Booster as follows: Take it daily for four consecutive weeks, then “cycle off” and do not take T-Booster for two weeks, then “cycle on” and resume taking Sport T-Booster for four weeks, and so on.
Is it OK to take Performance Lab® supplements if I am taking medications?
Be smart: Consult with your doctor before taking Performance Lab® supplements. Show your doctor a printout of Performance Lab® supplement facts. It is critical to talk to your doctor before starting any supplement program; this may be especially important if you have health concerns or are taking medications. Interactions are always possible, even with Performance Lab® formulas.
Also, please remember that this Performance Lab® website is not intended as a substitute for consulting with your doctor. This website does not provide medical advice or attempt to diagnose or treat an illness which should only be done under the direction of a healthcare professional.
Are Performance Lab® supplements vegan?
Yes. Performance Lab® supplements are made with vegan-friendly ingredients and delivery forms only.
What are Plantcaps® and Plantgels™?
Performance Lab® supplements are delivered in premium, natural, 100% vegan Plantcaps® and Plantgels™ exclusively.
Plantcaps® are made from pullulan (fermented tapioca) only. Notably, Plantgels™ are the first vegan softgels in the world to be made with tapioca, caramel, glycerin and purified water only. Most other vegan softgels are made with carrageenan, which has been linked to inflammation concerns.
Plantcaps® and Plantgels™ feature excellent disintegration properties for easy, comfortable absorption; as well as exemplary oxygen barrier properties to protect nutrients from the damaging effects of moisture and oxidation. And, both Plantcaps® and Plantgels™ are naturally infused with prebiotic nutrition that may further support digestive health and comfort.
Don’t be fooled by inferior vegan capsules: Some other manufacturers’ capsules labelled as “cellulose” may appear natural, but are actually made of semi-synthetic polymer.
Performance Lab® proudly uses Plantcaps® and Plantgels™ to advance our mission of using the cleanest, healthiest, highest-quality ingredients – even when it comes to the capsules and softgels that deliver our formulas.
How can Performance Lab® supplements be eco-friendly?
Eco-friendliness is an important part of Performance Lab® ’s “clean supplement” philosophy.
Our BPA-free bottles are manufactured from 20% post-consumer content, and are 100% recyclable. Performance Lab® also follows eco-conscious shipping practices, including using recyclable shipping boxes and biodegradable packing peanuts.
Beyond packaging, Performance Lab® strives for eco-friendliness in our processes and ingredients. For example, our Omega 3 supplement derives essential fatty acids from algae rather than fish. Algae is a highly sustainable biomass that is cleaner and easier to process than fish. By using algae, we also avoid overfishing and its threats to the environment and many forms of aquatic life.
Our Mind supplement uses Sharp-PS® Green, a soy-free form of phosphatidylserine that is made with a patented eco-friendly manufacturing process.
In addition, we believe our BioGenesis™ vitamins and minerals are truly revolutionary for environmental practices: Since they are lab-grown, these nutrients avoid the herbicides, pesticides, carbon footprint and destructive mining practices associated with some other vitamin and mineral forms.
Where are Performance Lab® supplements made?
Performance Lab® supplements are designed and formulated in the United Kingdom, and then manufactured in a state-of-the-art, FDA-registered and GMP-certified facility in New Jersey, USA.
Performance Lab® supplements are made by our American manufacturing arm, Opti-Nutra™ Ltd., Advanced Nutraceuticals. To learn more about Opti-Nutra™ and the Performance Lab® manufacturing process, visit www.optinutra.com.

Do you give away free samples of Performance Lab®?
No… sorry. Performance Lab® makes superior-quality with many premium and luxury ingredients. We never cut corners on quality to save money. But we do cut out free samples, coupons, discounts, etc. in order to keep our exceptional formulas affordable for all. Instead, Performance Lab® supplements are backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee – allowing you to experience our health-enhancing formulas risk-free, which is far better than a small free sample, anyway.
Why can’t I buy Performance Lab® at Amazon?
We choose to not sell Performance Lab® supplements on Amazon for a few reasons. Amazon is not always discerning about which supplements can be featured on its site, and we do not want Performance Lab® supplements to appear alongside (and therefore be associated with) low-quality junk products.
Amazon reviews are also easily manipulated by competitors, with little, if any, effective moderation.
Finally, www.performancelab.com is a superior store to buy Performance Lab® formulas, since this is the home of all the information our customers are looking for to understand our products – far more information than would be allowed on Amazon.
Is Performance Lab® available at GNC or other brick-and-mortar locations?
No. At this time, Performance Lab® supplements are only available at www.performancelab.com.
