As we go through our busy days, we have a lot to think about and a lot that we have to remember. Unfortunately, as we age the ability to retain our memories may progressively fade. The simplest things such as names, events or tasks that we would remember 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. Having optimal brain health will help enhance memory and mental activities. Cognitin will assist in staying focused and keep your mind from getting overwhelmed or cloudy. *
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-reactions 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. Ginkgo Biloba 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.*
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, phospholipidmetabolism 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.*
Ginkgo Biloba: 120 mg
The ginkgo tree has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 4,000 years. Various parts of the ginkgo tree were reportedly used in the treatment of respiratory ailments, to improve circulation, as a digestive aid, as a tonic for memory loss in the elderly and as a longevity elixir. Extracts of this powerful antioxidant herb can improve brain function by increasing cerebral blood flow and the supply of oxygen to the brain, contributing to healthy brain function. It boosts the brain's energy metabolism of glucose and heightens electrical activity. The specific extract used in this product is a 50:1 ratio and is a superior standardized botanical specially formulated to support healthy blood circulation within the brain.
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.
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*?
Possibly within two weeks.
