What Is Cognitex?

Cognitex is a self-proclaimed nootropic and brain brain (i.e. brain health) supplement produced by a US-based nutrition company named LifeExtension.

This product is available via the official website official cognitex website and Amazon. The product may also be available via other third party supplement retailers.

One bottle of Cognitex contains 90 capsules, costs $62.00 and will last consumers for approximately one month based on the directions of three capsules per day.

This product is targeted towards those who are looking to improve your brain performance, as well as those looking for a supplement for supporting their overall brain health. LifeExtension state that consumers of Cognitex can expect effects such as improved brain function, better memory levels and an increase in the productivity of the brain’s “regenerative mechanisms”.

Does Cognitex Work?

Based on our research into this product, we believe it may be useful for certain aspects of improve brain performance, but for the most part we feel the abilities of the formula are significantly exaggerated.

Firstly, we believe that this product is useful for reducing brain fatigue maintaining brain health (though it’s important to note that it is not able to treat or prevent any degenerative brain diseases/disorders). The feel that Cognitex is let down by the lack of clinically proven nootropic ingredients – we have found no concrete scientific evidence to suggest anything inside Cognitex will boost your energy long / short term memory levels and cognitive capacity. The product is also highly unlikely to speed up your thought processing speeds.

We would advise our readers view this as a more of an “alertness/focus pill”, rather than a full-blown nootropic stack.

Have used cognitex for 12 months now, and found them to be very effective. Experienced noticeable increase in focus and clarity of thought especially in intense mental activity.
