My name is XXXXX XXXXX you for the excellent question.I actually have a lot of experience and research in the supplement industry.Your answer is pretty easy to understand and breaksdown as follows.These Nootropic pills aren't really considered drugs. They are classified as supplements and as such have zero FDA regulation which is why they can claim whatever they want but more importantly can claim to have X amounts of each thing on the label, but they don't have to hold true to the label claims - unfortunately.. Basically these 2 products are considered "private label" where a bottler and pill "assembler" takes the designated mixture, puts them in capsules. The reason it's called a private label is because the information is held in confidence. The exception MIGHT be on the bottles themselves where they say "bottled" or "manufactured by" the company. You see this with private label food sometimes but obviously would need to have this in hand. There is a chance they are both made in house - in fact that may actually save them some money considering how cheap some bulk ingredients can be. Your first thing is to research sources and pricing for the individual ingredients you want in your formula. I utilize nootropics and really have found that i am response to alcar, vinpocetine and huperzine A along with some of the racitam family. A REALLLLLLY good thing you could base your formula off of is called Focus XT by SNS. They market toward studying and sports performance but I use this for work, the non caffinated version. Its seriously impressive to me - I add in my own ALCAR. You should also be able to find private labelers and those that do this for a living if you find you don't want to do the "manufacturing" yourself. The other part to this is that you can request sample material so you can see how good or poor each bottler is in regard to the process.The actual label is more than likely a combination of marketing and graphic design, perhaps possibly even separate from the actual company that creates and bottles the mixture.
Thanks for the response, just wondering if you were aware of any contract manufacturers for nootropics or a company that could bottle or package the product (or any pill for that instance)?
