Cognitex Basics
Cognitex Basics is a convenient and cost effective basic version of Life Extension's original Cognitex formula. Although the original Cognitex represents the best cost per milligram value, Cognitex Basics 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.

Alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is naturally present in all the body’s cells and plays important roles in the brain. A decline in acetylcholine levels coincides with advancing age and is a hallmark of neurodegeneration. 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 phospholipid. Alpha-GPC supplementation may result in enhanced phospholipid synthesis and improvement of signal transduction in the central nervous system, and has been shown to support memory and cognition.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a crucial building block in the brain. In fact, brain tissues are especially rich in this nutrient. However, aging causes a decline in the PS content of cells throughout the body including brain cells, which can lead to cognitive decline.

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. Thus, replacing this brain food is essential.

Cognitex Basics provides the same amounts of alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline and phosphatidylserine as the existing Cognitex products (per serving).
