    Life Extension - Cognitex Basics - 60 Softgels

    Life Extension's 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, Life Extension's 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).

    Life Extension's Vison
    Our goal at Life Extension is to increase the quality and longevity of human life with science-based, “cutting edge” formulations. The unique ingredients included in Life Extension products are sometimes five to ten years ahead of the products sold by commercial vitamin companies.

    Every week, Life Extension's in-house research staff analyzes thousands of scientific studies, reviews dozens of the world's leading peer-reviewed scientific, health, and medical journals, and interacts with leading anti-aging researchers to uncover the very latest breakthroughs as they relate to nutritional supplementation. This information is then passed on to their product development team which develops scientifically innovative, health-promoting formulations.

    For over 25 years, Life Extension has developed nutritional supplements with the highest degree of quality, potency, and purity. Unlike discount supplement providers, Life Extension differentiates itself through quality, not price. Many discount products, for example, use low grade vitamin C imported from China that contains traces of arsenic, lead, and iron. Since the FDA does not believe anyone should take more than 100mg a day of vitamin C, the FDA permits the importation of this contaminated vitamin C. Many Life Extensionists take over 3,000 mg of vitamin C a day, so it is crucial that they use top-quality vitamin C that has gone through 18 purification steps to remove contaminants.

    Life Extension’s complete line of nutritional supplements includes vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phyto-nutrients and standardized herbal concentrates.

    Life Extension's Commitment to Scientific Research
    Commercial companies have made huge profits on products such as coenzyme Q10, melatonin and DHEA, each of which was introduced to the U.S. market by Life Extension at considerable risk. Life Extension performed the research on these products, determined their validity and viability, and subsequently brought them to market based upon the strength of evidence behind them.

    In the past seven years, Life Extension has funded over $21 million in research through their affiliations with such esteemed institutions as U.C. Berkeley and Mt. Sinai Medical Center. In 2004, Life Extension's scientists were awarded a $900,000 grant to continue their pioneering work, and they collaborated with BioMarker Pharmaceuticals and scientists at the National Cancer Institute to develop new anti-aging and anti-cancer therapies. This resulted in a recently accepted publication in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    In addition, Life Extension has funded life span studies at the Universities of Wisconsin, California at Riverside, and Arkansas, gene transfer studies at the Gerontology Research Center in Baltimore, neurotransmitter studies to find the key to brain aging at the University of California at Berekely, and resveratrol studies BioMarker Pharmaceuticals in collaboration with Harvard Medical School and Critical Care Research.

    Suggested Use
    Take two (2) softgels daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
