Is Cognitex Right For You?

Cognitex is advertised as an herbal remedy approach especially developed to enhance neurological functions in the human aging brain. Life Extension Foundation manufactures this supplement. The company is set up as a foundation with the key goal to fund research and disseminate information on preventive medicine and life extension with the aid of nutritional supplementation. The company derives much of its income from the sale of dietary supplements that target a variety of needs. Also, in 2013 the company has had some problems with the IRS due to a conflict between its purpose and its profit gaining operations, being revoked its tax-exempt status retroactive to 2006.

This formula was created for people who want to boost their short-term memory and prevent the effects that aging processes have on various cognitive processes. Life Extension Foundation also aims to target people who seek to improve their cognitive functions in general.

Cognitex contains many different herbal extracts, and other nutrients blended in a low-cost approach to optimal brain performance. Thy company states that they use pharmaceutical grade nutrients, clinically tested for Effectiveness and potency. They also talk about neurotransmitters in their literature, and a few, in particular, are singled out for better brain functioning and aging prevention treatments.

  1. 1

    I suffered a concussion late this summer, and it really affected my memory and various other brain functions (concentration, multitasking, visualisation,stamina). I have started taking the supplement (only one gel/day) about 3 weeks ago. I have noticed a net improvement: my memory is improving and the nagging fog is slowly lifting. Now, I don’t know whether the improvement is due to the healing powers of time, the healing powers of rest (I have taken many sick days recently to rest my brain) and/or the healing powers of this supplement, but – like I said – I am feeling better. And I’m a very greatful individual at this point!

    Cognitex was given to me by my closest friend. I tried taking it for two months. It is difficult for me to assess it because I mostly rested and read a few books in this period, with no significant intellectual effort. I did feel ok all of the time, so that might be good.

  3. 3

    After taking Cognitex for a couple of months not only that my memory is better than it has ever been before, but I made real progress with my learning abilities and capacity to concentrate. Now I have time for everything, because with all this energy I can manage it all.

    I am suffering from short term memory loss. Cognitex improved my memory and I can remember more important things than I used to. I am happy I found it and try it, because there is still hope for me. Thanks.

  5. 5

    I do a lot better at school due to Cognitex. It helps me sift through all the complex information that I need to sort each day and come up with solutions to my projects. It’s great that I managed to find it before I felt getting swarmed.

  6. 6

    Unfortunately, this is another product that doesn’t help me with my short term memory. I am so tired trying so many supplements without any benefits for me. I guess I will keep searching for alternatives…

      sleep and rest should be the prime factors while trying to improve your short term memory. Nothing can replace that.

    I use Cognitex a lot. I am an accountant and I have to keep a lot of numbers in check. It is very easy to make mistakes that will have nasty consequences. A supplement like Cognitex helps me maintain memory and focus so I don’t lose my job.

    Cognitex is one of those products that don;t seem to do much for you in the end. It was very hard for me to assess if I improved in any way. Maybe it’s my sedentary nature but isn’t this supposed to make you less sedentary any way?

  9. 10

    I do need something to slow down my noticeable degradation. I used to do so much and now I do so little. It’s been only one month since I started taking Cognitex so I can’t be judgemental yet, but I hope it does more than it did so far.

  10. 11

    I take Cognitex because I can’t afford to make mistakes at work. I just turned fifty years old and I find dealing with all the technical stuff more and more difficult. I have to do a lot of adjustments in order to cope and Cognitex is one of them.

    I think it totally worth the money. It is a good herbal remedy… It really helped me to improve my short term memory and I am able to do multi-tasking and be efficient at the same time. I am more confident and more organized.

  12. 13

    During the exams I started taking this because I was not confident enough I could pull it off on my own. I managed to pass all of them, although not with pretty scores. I think it helped me overall, I don’t think I would have been able to pass all of them without it.

  13. 14

    I’ve really tried to use this effectively but I fell just short of satisfaction. I was always convinced that all brain supplements are the same and you can just pick one and change the way you take it until it works. No I know that’s not true. If the recommended dosage doesn’t work, better try something else.

  14. 15

    I’ve tried using this as a study aid but I did not perceive any difference. I felt just as anxious about not knowing how to organize myself as I did before using it. I really don’t think this works.

  15. 16

    I have spend a lot of money and nothing seems to improve. I have issues concentrating and always forgeting things. So I don’t find it useful at all.

    My job involves a lot of number crunching and attention to details. I found Cognitex very useful in improving my focus.

  17. 18

    The price for this supplement is crazy. I paid thinking it would give me the benefits but it didnt. Now I wish i could get my money back
