Why Choose nutraMetrix® Prime Cognitin™ Memory Support Formula*

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.

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.

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.

excellent product

I definitely notice my memory is stronger. I feel clearer in my mind and my learning retention is much better, as I was feeling the effects of aging. This product is an obvious requirement for me.

I notice a difference

When I do not take Prime memory for more than 5 days, I notice that my memory is less sharp.


  • Shop Consultant

Can't be without it

I am 66 yrs old and as with other age related problems my memory is faulty. I have been taking this product for several years now because when I don't take it, I notice a huge difference in concentration and recall. I order every month along with my OPC-3. Highly recommend this product and it's much less expensive than the product being advertised on TV.


Great product

I bought this product for my dad who is 87 yrs old who and was having a lot of confusion and memory issues after getting pneumonia in January. Within 2 weeks he was back to his old self. He did have dimentia before the pneumonia but the symptoms were mild. He is no longer living in a fog.



And took a week but then I got sick on it. I have trouble with most vitamins and I thought this one would work. My mistake.
