Plato is made from plants, and plants, like people, aren’t all alike.

Seasonal variation, changes due to weather, and even differences from plant to plant — all are common reasons for variations in the potency of herbs and roots.

For that reason (and a few thousand others), Plato is formulated with branded standardized extracts.

‘Standardized’ means every batch of each ingredient is identical in potency and purity, season to season, year over year.

‘Branded’ means we buy from suppliers who are proud to put their name on the product. Many supplements are made of generic ingredients, which is fine for, say, breakfast cereal, but not so much for us.



In formulating Plato, our goal was to first to find the ingredients with the strongest evidence available indicating their safety and efficacy for healthy young people. With the best ingredients identified, the next step was to bring them together into a single formula that matched the ingredients used in the research.

One aspect of that was finding standardized extracts whose active ingredient profiles were as close to the studied ingredients as possible, and the other was to match the potencies and quantities to deliver the same amount of active ingredients used in those studies.

In the case of Rhodiola rosea, we were excited to find Jiaherb’s Rhodiola5Plus™ #2, which confers 3% rosavins and 2% salidroside, closely matching the profile of the SHR-5 extract used in the best Rhodiola studies.

With Panax ginseng, we went to Italian producers Indena® for a high-concentration extract with tightly controlled ratios of ginsenosides Rg1 and Rb1 similar to the G115 standard used in the most promising studies of Panax ginseng.

For Bacopa monnieri, the best evidence comes from research done on Bacognize® itself, and at exactly the 300mg quantity used in Plato. If you noticed a discrepancy between the NLT 12% bacopa glycoside by HPLC potency on Plato and the 45% by UV-VIS you may have seen on other products – good eye! It’s the same product with a different name, and this is the same dosage used in all the excellent research done on Bacognize®.
