Cognitex with Brain Shield/Gastrodin
By boosting glucose metabolism and stimulating production of acetylcholine (ACh - which specifically addresses learning and short-term memory), supplemental phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve the condition of patients experiencing age-associated memory impairment or cognitive decline and associated side effects.10,11 Thus, replacing this brain food is essential.
Gastrodin acts as a "brain shield," calming brain cells and helping to protect against oxidant, inflammatory, and excitatory damage. Gastrodin's multiple modes of action work together to improve circulation and shield the brain from age-related insults.
Life Extension's new generation Cognitex formulas now contain a rich PS compound that mimics the naturally occurring PS in the brain. SharpPS GoldTM fortified with omega-3 fatty acids, delivers unique brain-health benefits to help retard the cognitive degeneration so often seen with advanced age. These unique brain nutrients have been extensively studied and may be of tremendous benefit for the aging brain.12
More Protection Against Side Effects Laden Free Radicals
While antioxidant nutrients provide essential free radical protection, many have limited capacity once they have spared an electron to balance a free radical. Cognitex now contains a novel rosemary extract that is rich in carnosic acid, which provides multi-step protection against free radicals in a process called the carnosic acid cascade. At each step of free radical interaction a new compound is formed, which in turn is a powerful antioxidant in itself.Bioavailable to the Brain
Nutritional support for the brain is challenging as a barrier called the blood-brain barrier keeps out toxins. In addition, it hangs-on to beneficial nutrients and drugs. Cognitex contains the grape seed extract Leucoselect Phytosome. By pairing one molecule of proanthocyanidins from grape seed extract with two molecules of phosphatidylcholine from soy lecithin in the Phytosome, the uptake and distribution to target tissues of the grape seed polyphenols is enhanced.
Once in the brain, the polyphenols trap side effects dangerous hydroxyl free radicals that turn fat rancid. These fats make up the outer lipid membrane of trillions of brain cells. These polyphenols also protect blood circulation and oxygen flow to the brain by improving the tone and elasticity of blood vessels.
Molecular Size Matters
A Difference You Can Feel
Sensoril also helps modulate the stress response resulting in cortisol excretion. Stress can be very damaging to the brain, especially memory function, and cortisol stimulates the body to release sugar (glucose) into the bloodstream. Elevated levels of glucose can accelerate aging and increase fat storage leading to weight gain, especially in the abdomen. In addition, the stress-modulating abilities of Sensoril can help stress-overeaters especially when it comes to carbohydrate cravings.
Advanced Inflammation Protection
Circulation is a Positive Side Effect to Cognitive Health
Additional Advanced Brain Nutrients
Cognitex is available with pregnenolone. Concentrations of this critical hormone are much higher in the brain and studies show that this hormone has numerous positive side effects and mental benefits.
All these ingredients work synergistically to promote optimal cognitex function.

Continued use of the product will bring on mental re-invigoration.
