More facts about Cognitex® Basics

This formula has 250 mg of alpha glyceryl phosphoryl choline (Alpha-GPC), 100 mg of Phosphatidylserine, and 100 mg AuroraBlue® wild-crafted whole blueberry fruit extract.


Maintaining healthy levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine is essential to muscle control, sleep, and cognitive function.1,2 So our Cognitex® Basics formula provides L-alpha glyceryl phosphoryl choline (Alpha-GPC), a precursor to acetylcholine - a crucial building block for the production of acetylcholine in the brain.3,4


Phosphatidylserine (or just PS for short) an essential component of healthy cell membranes, is critical to brain metabolism and function, and supports brain-cell-to-brain-cell connections.5,6 PS promotes healthy cognitive function, healthy memory, concentration, attention, and more.7-12 Additionally, PS helps the brain use its fuel efficiently by facilitating glucose metabolism and stimulating production of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter.13-15

AuroraBlue® blueberry fruit extract

Blueberry phytonutrients can help inhibit age-related decline in cognitive and motor function.16,17 Wild blueberry extracts have been shown to inhibit oxidative and inflammatory factors in brain cells believed to affect memory health.18,19 Our formula uses AuroraBlue®, a whole-food complex of various blueberry species from pristine Alaskan tundra with powerful antioxidant properties. Add Cognitex® Basics to your regimen today, and lay a strong foundation for healthy, youthful cognition and memory for years to come.
