As we go through our busy days, we have a lot to think about. Unfortunately, as we age, the ability to retain our memories sometimes fades. At times, even the simplest things — names, events or tasks that we would have had no problem remembering a few years ago — seem to completely slip our minds. Cognitin is specially designed to help maintain healthy blood circulation within the brain. Maintaining proper blood flow to the brain is important in maintaining proper brain function.* Cognitin has a select ingredient combination to enhance memory and inhibit oxidative stress to the brain. Alpha-lipoic acid has antioxidant activity that can scavenge free radicals in the brain to stop the undesirable chain-reaction they cause. Alpha-lipoic acid is both water and fat-soluble and can regenerate endogenous antioxidants, such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and glutathione, and inhibit oxidative stress. Vinpocetine and acetyl l-carnitine help maintain healthy blood circulation in the brain. Cognitin is specially formulated to promote proper blood flow to the brain in order for the brain to maintain peak performance and to infuse the brain with antioxidants to inhibit free radicals activity in the brain.*

Benefits


  • Aids in improving and enhancing memory

  • Helps maintain healthy blood circulation within the brain (cerebral blood flow)

  • Helps maintain normal brain physiology

  • Helps minimize the effects of aging on the brain

  • Inhibits oxidative stress/damage to the brain

  • Promotes healthy levels of acetylcholine (an important neurotransmitter in the brain)

  • Supports normal mental activity

  • Supports overall cognitive performance

Ingredients

Acetyl L-Carnitine: 500 mg 
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is able to travel through the blood-brain barrier where it supports the normal formation of the brain chemical acetylcholine; it promotes the efficient operation of cells by helping them stay clear of toxic fatty-acid metabolites; and it helps maintain normal brain physiology.*


Chemical messengers like neurotransmitters are vital to maintaining cognitive function yet often decline with age. Studies have shown that ALC promotes overall cognitive performance. ALC promotes normal cognitive function by helping to maintain brain energy production, phospholipid metabolism and acetyl coenzyme A levels. Acetyl coenzyme A is used by the body to re-synthesize acetylcholine.*


Alpha-lipoic acid: 100 mg 
Deep within the tissue, alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that, together with pyrophosphatase, promotes normal carbohydrate metabolism and production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Deep within the tissues of the brain, alpha-lipoic acid and the metabolite, dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), have antioxidant components, which help to neutralize damaging free radicals.*


Alpha-lipoic acid is both water and fat-soluble and can regenerate endogenous antioxidants, such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and glutathione, and prevent oxidative stress. Alpha-lipoic acid is about 30 percent absorbed from dietary or supplemental sources, and is reduced to DHLA in many tissues.*


Vinpocetine (Viagra for the Brain): 20 mg 
Vinpocetine appears to have antioxidant components and supports normal blood flow, which may be beneficial to healthy brain function. Preliminary evidence indicates that vinpocetine supports cerebral circulation and promotes glucose and oxygen consumption by the brain. Vinpocetine's age management benefits may include improved concentration.*

FAQ

If I am taking OPC-3 ®, can I take Cognitin? 
The combination of the ingredient vinpocetine and OPC-3 may cause blood thinning, so if you are currently taking warfarin (Coumadin), other antiplatelet/anticoagulant, antidiabetic, chemotherapy or any other prescription drugs, or have an ongoing medical condition, you should consult their physician before taking this product. I get sick taking pills on an empty stomach.


Can I take this with food? 
Cognitin should be taken with food to improve absorption of the active ingredients.


If I am already taking Vitamind, can I also take Cognitin? 
The combination of Vitamind and Cognitin is not necessary or recommended. The vinpocetine in Cognitin may interact with the Ginkgo Biloba in Vitamind and may cause the blood to thin.


What other products complement Cognitin? 
Isotonix ® Maximum ORAC, Isotonix Multivitamin, Heart Health Advanced CoQ10, and Isotonix Advanced B-Complex all complement Cognitin to produce optimal memory levels.


What are signs that I need Cognitin? 
If you are elderly or if you routinely have difficulty when trying to recall a simple task, name, or event.


What portion of the brain does Cognitin affect*? 
The entire brain.


What mechanisms does this formulation work by*?

Great product

on 08/11/2015

I bought this product for my dad who is 87 yrs old who and was having a lot of confusion and memory issues after getting pneumonia in January. Within 2 weeks he was back to his old self. He did have dimentia before the pneumonia but the symptoms were mild. He is no longer living in a fog.

awesome product

im bad when it's coming down the line having to memorize something and this products works wonder..i took it and i realized that i could remember things to do, things i have planned, and even people's phone numbers and car tag # which surprises myself in so many different ways...i was like omg, i got it in my mind...it's awesome..yes, it is

on 05/10/2012

I was wonderfully surprised at how fast acting and powerful this product works. I live on vitamin supplements, tried many on the market and found this supplement to be one of the better memory support products out. I was experiencing brain fog, problems recalling names, etc. I don't have that problem anymore. I'm almost out and need to buy another bottle. I don't want to run out because its that good.

I bought this product 6 weeks ago for my father, 87, who had experienced some memory lapses lately. He takes the product at night before he sleeps. Three weeks ago in his rest home apartment, he handed me 6 or 7 pieces of paper that contained diagrams and text as to how workers in the Gulf could contain and capture the leaking oil by relieving the pressure with a series of "capping" towers that would lead to ships that would collect the oil. He wrote to the governor of Louisiana to pass this infomation to engineers and other experts to see if it had merit. "If it works, all I'm asking for is $50 million," he wrote. Now I can't say for sure that Cognitin was THE factor that prompted him to take action, but he's certainly taken a greater interest in what's happening in the Gulf, and he's been writing and calling news stations (CNN, MSNBC, Glenn Beck, Fox News, etc.), and will share his solution to the problem to anyone who will listen. The residents of the rest home know his solution all too well by now. I think my dad is already counting ways he can spend that $50 million. God knows he needs a new pair of sneakers!
