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
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.1,2
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.3 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).
