Key Ingredients Found In nutraMetrix® Prime™ Cognitin™ Memory Support Formula:

 

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.*

What Makes nutraMetrix® Prime™ Cognitin™ Memory Support Formula Unique?

 

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.*

Frequently Asked Questions About nutraMetrix® Prime™ Cognitin™ Memory Support Formula:

 

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 your 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 portion of the brain does Cognitin affect*?

The entire brain.
