A basic version of the original Cognitex formula. Supplies clinically evaluated doses of alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline (alpha-GPC) and phosphatidylserine, both of which are critical to proper neurotransmitter function and optimal cognitive health.

Someone in America develops an age-related brain decline every 70 seconds!59 Within 20 years an astounding 71 million aging individuals will be at risk for cognitive problems.59 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, is naturally present in all the body’s cells. 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.46-48 The safety and importance to life of Alpha-GPC is evidenced by its substantial presence in human breast milk.49,50 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.51

Alpha-GPC (alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline) - your brain needs this acetylcholine "precursor" to produce optimal amounts of acetylcholine, which is critically involved in memory, cognition, sleep, and motor control.46-48 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 helps the brain use its fuel efficiently. By boosting glucose metabolism and stimulating production of acetylcholine, supplemental phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve the condition of patients experiencing age-associated memory impairment or cognitive decline.11,20-22 Thus, replacing this brain food is essential.

Cognitex® contains a compound that mimics the naturally occurring PS in the brain.

Phosphatidylserine - found in human milk, it 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.60 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.
