Introduction

LiftMode is a nootropic vendor known for supplying Phenibut among other individual nootropic compounds as well as stacks. The company is based in Chicago, Illinois and has been around since 2010. So, what’s the secret to their ability to retain a leading position in a marketplace otherwise characterized by cut-throat competition? We investigate.


All About Lift Mode

This 5-team member organization was established close to a decade gone by and is operated by Synaptent LLC. Although not the most popular big boy vendor (in terms of hype) out there in the world, there is no doubt that theirs has been a story of rising. Today, they have an extra branch in Japan which is meant to improve the speed at which they handle their customers from the East.

One thing we really like about this company is transparency. Their team is made up of experts in biochemistry and business. And so far, the quality of their staff is reflected by the kind of services and quality of products they provide.

So, to this end, this supplier seems quite promising and we’d like to laud them for that. But what about the elephant in the room – quality assurance?

Quality Assurance

Whenever you order a product from them, it usually comes with a Certificate of Analysis (CoA). This indeed confirms the fact that they do have independent third-party tests done on all of their products. As a quality conscious shopper, it is always important to insist on CoAs – these certificates can go a long way in helping you determine whether the kind of product you pay for meets expectations.

Most importantly, you are able to confirm whether the product has been checked for heavy-metals or not. Heavy metal tests are particularly important because some of the herbs like Bacopa, for instance, are grown in marshy conditions.

Some of the tests that this company has confirmed are done on its products include:

  • Identity tests
  • Purity tests
  • Contaminants test
  • Heavy-metal testing
  • Bacteria testing
  • Isomeric purity testing

So, as far as quality assurance and product safety are concerned, we have reasons to believe that this is one of the most reliable vendors on the markets currently.

Customer Support

Here you get an all in one package as far as customer support goes. We’re talking about live-chat, email-based support, physical address, phone-based support, and a thriving social media community. Just to test how good their customer support is we contacted them via their live chat tool and got a response within seconds. That alone goes a long way to show just how seriously they take their customers.

The Marketing Model

Lift Mode is one of those companies that choose to focus on continually improving the quality of their products and achieving the highest possible levels of customer satisfaction instead of breaking the bank all in the name of advertising and paying influencers. This is a fact that’s evident once you check out their reviews on platforms like Trustpilot and Facebook.

So, if all you’re looking for is a company that lets its work speak for itself, this might just be the best marketplace to shop from.

Pricing

Nootropics Depot, one of its main competitors sells its Phenibut HCL 250mg capsules at $0.167 per capsule while Lift Mode sells its Phenibut HCL 300mg capsules at $0.2 per capsule. So, you get a higher quality product but also pay slightly more when you shop with Lift Mode.

A stack of Caffeine and L-Theanine mixed in ratio 1:2 would cost you $0.125 per capsule if you ordered through Pure Nootropics but a similar stack at (1:1.5 ratio) would cost you some $0.16. Once again LiftMode is slightly expensive than the competition and this time around the stack falls below the recommended 1:2 ratio.

Shipping & Returns

You get free shipping if your order exceeds 25 bucks and you reside within the US. What’s more? The company provides a no-nonsense 90-day money-back guarantee. Claims are usually settled within 7 to 10 days.

Final Thoughts

  • Product Quality – Check
  • Customer Support – Check 
  • User Experience – Check 

In our view, this is a great place to shop from. That said, their product menu is still quite limited in our view. We hope to see them increase the number of nootropics and stacks they deal with over time.
