As you get older, some degree of cognitive decline is a given. That's because neurotransmitters and other brain compounds diminish with age, affecting what you understand, process, and remember. But with nutrients like Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC) and Sharp-PS® Green Phosphatidylserine found in our Cognitex® Basics formula, you can lay a strong foundation for healthy, youthful cognition and memory for years to come.
Benefits at a Glance
Brain health starts with the cell
A healthy adult brain has about 100 billion nerve cells. Each cell requires specific dietary support for optimum performance. But most aging individuals unwittingly starve their brains of these critical nutrients. Life Extension's Cognitex® Basics lays a foundation for cognitive health with two brain-boosting nutrients that provide nutritional support for a youthful cognition and memory.
Support Acetylcholine with Alpha-GPC
Maintaining healthy levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine is essential to muscle control, sleep, and cognitive function.1,2 But acetylcholine levels decline with advancing age. So our Cognitex® Basics formula provides L-alpha glyceryl phosphoryl choline (Alpha-GPC), a precursor to acetylcholine — a crucial building block for the production of acetylcholine in the brain.3-4
Phosphatidylserine helps brain cells function
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is highly concentrated in brain tissue. But aging causes a decline in Phosphatidylserine. In the brain, PS helps maintain cell membrane integrity and brain-cell-to-brain-cell connections,5-13 and improves neural function. Phosphatidylserine also enhances cellular energy metabolism and promotes healthy memory, concentration, learning and word choice.
Phosphatidylserine helps the brain by boosting glucose metabolism and stimulating production of acetylcholine. Supplementing with phosphatidylserine has been shown to improve memory and cognitive function in older people.14-17
