What Makes Us Different

Illuminate Labs is the most transparent supplement company in the U.S.

Illuminate Labs is the only supplement manufacturer in the U.S. which ensures that all of our products meet European Union dietary supplement contaminant standards (strictest in the world). We test our products for purity, potency and label accuracy at a third-party laboratory called the U.S. Botanical Safety Laboratory and then publish the test results for you the consumer to see. We only sell products that pass this rigorous testing.

In January of 2020, over 800 individual supplement brands (supplied by three large contract manufacturers) were ordered to take all of their products off the market by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for significant violations of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The only way for consumers to know that the supplements they're taking are safe and effective is to see test results from a third-party laboratory.

Additionally, we publish all of the medical research that went into our supplement formulations right on each product page. See the Medical Research section at the bottom of this page to view the 10 research papers that went into our Panax Ginseng Extract formulation. These publications prove the safety & efficacy of our product.

These documents are highly technical. If you have any questions about the results please reach out to

What is Panax Ginseng?

Panax ginseng extract (often called "Korean Ginseng" or "Red Ginseng") comes from the root of a perennial plant native to the Asian continent. Panax is one of two variants of the herb, the other being American ginseng. It's considered a "general tonic" in Chinese medicine. However, most of the recent research on this plant involves its nootropic (cognitive-enhancing) effects.

Research suggests that panax ginseng extract can improve cognitive performance and support energy. We recently put together a research article on all of the benefits of this type of ginseng.

All Illuminate Labs herbal extracts are sourced from a variety of different countries based on seasonality and purity of raw materials.

      Excellent Strength Of Product

      I find Illuminate Labs ginseng capsules to be significantly more potent than other varieties I have tried. The subscription option is useful as well, because I often forget to order my monthly supplements!
