Product Overview

Description

  • Supports Healthy Brain Cell Function
  • Dietary Supplement

Within 20 years an astounding 71 million aging individuals will be at risk for cognitive problems. Fortunately, new research indicates that some of the factors behind this alarming trend may lie within your control. The key is to maintain a steady supply of special nutrients clinically shown to support brain health as you age.

A healthy adult brain has about 100 billion nerve cells. Each cell requires specific dietary support for optimum performance. But most aging individuals unwittingly starve their brains of these critical nutrients with a heart-healthy diet deficient in eggs, red meat and cheeses, the very foods that contain these vital brain-boosting nutrients.

To remedy this deficiency, Life Extension developed the comprehensive Cognitex formula back in 1982, to provide optimal support for the aging brain. Now Cognitex Basics offers a more simplified, lower-cost approach featuring these two key compounds that may not be obtained in optimal amounts when following a healthy diet:

L-alpha glyceryl phosphoryl choline (Alpha-GPC), a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and also converted to phosphatidylcholine after oral ingestion, is naturally present in most every cell membrane in the body. A decline in acetylcholine levels coincides with advancing age and is a hallmark of neurodegeneration. Cognitex provides Alpha-GPC as a crucial building block for the production of acetylcholine in the brain. The safety and importance to life of Alpha-GPC is evidenced by its substantial presence in human breast milk. Proper acetylcholine function is essential to muscle control, sleep, and cognition. Alpha-GPC plays a key role in both the synthesis and the catabolic recycling of phospholipids. Alpha-GPC supplementation may result in enhanced phospholipid synthesis, including synthesis of the phosphoinositides available for signal transduction at central nervous system level. Owing to clinical studies validating its brain-supporting power, Alpha-GPC is sold as an expensive prescription drug in Europe. But a daily serving of two softgels of Cognitex Basics gives you 600 mg of Alpha-GPC.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a crucial building block in the brain. In fact, brain tissues are especially rich in this nutrient. However, aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body including brain cells, which can lead to cognitive decline. Phosphatidylserine is essential in helping brain neurons support memory and in promoting healthy nerve cell division and repair. Research shows it benefits people of all ages. Since 2003 the FDA has recognized that phosphatidylserine consumption may reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive dysfunction in the elderly. And a daily dose of Cognitex Basics provides 100 mg of phosphatidylserine.

Age-related cognitive decline or "senior moments" are in store for anyone who lives long enough. But taking precautionary measures now can yield huge neurological health dividends later.

Brain booster, stroke recovery

Posted by Reviewer1055106 on Dec 17, 2013

In my opinion Life Extension has superior quality products. I have always better result with their products, so if they sometimes are a bit more expensive than other brands, I still prefer buying their products. I combine Cognitex Basics with PQQ, RNA and PS from the same brand (but Jarrow is good too for PS) and also with Better Brain from Garden of Life and finally Lion's mane for boosting nerve growth factor. This combination has not only improved brain fog and memory, but also helped me to have an amazingly great recovery from a stroke recently.

good dose for a great price

I take one twice a day with Jarrow Pantethine 450. Cognitex is a gelcap, whereas Jarrow (only 300mg) is a dry capsule. They're both effective, but Cognitex is twice the dose for less.

Immediate Effect.

I would consider these essential. 2 in the morning and 1 more with lunch if I a boost. I find that if I take a dose with dinner, I have incredibly vivid dreams. Taking these with acetyl-l-carnitine and fish oil will radically improve mood, concentration and memory.
