What is Cogniva?
Cogniva is an innovative nootropic brain health product exclusive to Immunotec.
What are nootropics?
Nootropics—often referred to as “smart drugs” or “cognitive enhancers”—are a diverse group of substances intended to address cognitive function, which may include: memory, focus and attention, learning and retention, alertness, and even creativity and motivation.
What is cognition?
The mental process of knowing, which includes perceiving, recognizing, conceiving, judging, reasoning, and imagining.
What claims can Immunotec officially make about Cogniva?
Benefits of using Cogniva include temporary improvement of overall cognitive performance, temporary improvement of alertness and concentration, support for long-term brain health and short-term memory, and a quick boost of focus and mental sharpness.
How does Cogniva work?
Cogniva contains several scientifically validated ingredients which all act uniquely at different sites in brain tissue. Two of the areas that are focused on are the “neurons” and “synapses”.
What is a neuron?
A neuron is the basic cellular unit of the brain and nervous system. Our brain contains billions of neurons that work in tandem with each other to function. They communicate with each other through trillions of connections called “synapses”.
What are synapses?
Synapses are the connection points through which neurons communicate with each other. Signals are sent across synapses though specific molecules called “neurotransmitters”.
What are neurotransmitters?
Neurotransmitters are a diverse group of naturally-produced chemicals with signals that are sent from neuron-to-neuron through connection points called synapses.
What is Syna-PS50?
Syna-PS50 is Immunotec's unique and proprietary (trademarked) blend of scientifically researched ingredients that includes phosphatidylserine (PS).
What is Phosphatidylserine?
Phosphatidylserine has been studied extensively for its role in memory and cognition, and has been shown to have a positive effect on attributes such as memory recognition, memory recall, executive functions, and mental flexibility.
What does the 50 stand for in Syna-PS50?
The 50 represents the 50 mg of phosphatidylserine included in the formula.
What are “Executive functions”?
Executive functions are a set of cognitive processes, including attention, focus, control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, as well as reasoning, problem solving, and planning.
What other ingredients are included in Cogniva and what is their intended function?
  • Chromium increases brain glucose transporters, providing neural energy
  • Vanadium is an essential micronutrient for normal neurochemical metabolism
  • Choline is a critical component of brain cell membranes and neurotransmitters
  • Boron is a trace element involved in neuronal energy utilization
  • Methyl Folate is the active form of natural folate involved in the production of neurotransmitters
  • Methylcobalamin is a highly active form of B12 which supports healthy epigenetic regulation
  • Green Tea Isolate provides natural caffeine that is micro-encapsulated for a gentler and longer effect than synthetic caffeine
Who should take Cogniva?
Examples include: students for improved focus and learning, adults to help cope with a hectic lifestyle, and the elderly for memory support.
Who should NOT take Cogniva?
Anyone who is allergic or sensitive to any of Cogniva's ingredients. Individuals who are sensitive to caffeine need to note there is approximately 100 mg of green-tea based microencapsulated caffeine in each chew.
As we do for all of our products, Immunotec suggests that you ask your health professional before taking any new supplements.
Can children take Cogniva?
Currently, Immunotec has not applied for a licence to market Cogniva to children.
Can pregnant or lactating women take Cogniva?
It is recommended that pregnant or lactating women ask their own health professional before taking Cogniva.
Will Cogniva help with any medical conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, or Attention-Deficit Disorder?
Natural health products and dietary supplements are not intended to treat, cure, abate, or prevent any official medical conditions. Individuals may investigate accredited medical/scientific literature on each of the ingredients, or ask their health professional’s opinion and advice.
How does the caffeine in Cogniva differ from synthetic caffeine or caffeine from coffee?
The caffeine in Cogniva comes from green tea. It is microencapsulated. It is absorbed and released slower into the body than standard caffeine supplements or coffee.
Are there side effects?
If side effects occur, they are most likely to be as a result of caffeine ingestion.
This includes difficulty sleeping (if product is taken late in the day), anxiety (in caffeine-sensitive individuals), and palpitations (in caffeine-sensitive individuals). If side effects are experienced, please stop using Cogniva. These side effects may be more common in those who are already ingesting different forms of caffeine. Side effects are expected to abate within hours.
How many chews can I take per day?
The recommended dose is one chew per day. More than that increases the risk of side effects.
When is the best time to take Cogniva?
Cogniva can be taken at any time during the day except for those individuals who find that caffeine intake disrupts their sleep. In this case, try to take Cogniva before 3pm.
Can I take this supplement with medication?
Any concomitant use of supplements with medications should be discussed with your treating health professional.
How should Cogniva be stored?
Keep the bag sealed. Avoid exposure to heat.
Will warmer weather affect Cogniva?
Prolonged exposure to higher summer temperatures will cause Cogniva chews to melt. To prevent this from happening, we recommend storing Cogniva in a refrigerator (not a freezer). Please rest assured that keeping Cogniva cool will have no impact on its effectiveness and does not change the taste or mouth feel. And if you should encounter some Cogniva that’s melted, popping it in the fridge will return it to normal with no loss of effectiveness, even if the chews lose a little of their original shape.
What is the main difference between Immunotec’s Cogniva and other brain health products?
There are so many different “brain health” products on the market, it is too difficult to answer this succinctly. Each product needs to be evaluated on its own merit regarding dosage, efficacy, and scientific validation. Cogniva contains scientifically validated ingredients combined in a unique and proprietary blend trademarked as “Syna-PS50”.
Is Cogniva gluten-free?
Yes, Cogniva is gluten-free.
Is Cogniva vegan?
Yes, Cogniva is vegan.
Does Cogniva contain preservatives?
Cogniva does not contain preservatives.
Does Cogniva contain artificial sweeteners?
Cogniva does not contain artificial sweeteners.
What sweetener is used in Cogniva?
The sweetener used in Cogniva is raw cane sugar.
How much sugar is contained in Cogniva?
Cogniva contains 3g of raw cane sugar.
Why do some people occasionally find that Cogniva may leave a small waxy residue after taking it?
The green tea extract is micro encapsulated with a special coat that:
  • Decreases the bitterness
  • Leads to a sustained release of the active ingredient
How can this be avoided?
  • Chew the Cogniva well
  • Just letting it melt without chewing will result in a waxier feel
  • Being well-hydrated or drinking fluids will help
  • People with dentures may elect to cut up Cogniva into small portions and swallow with water
Is Cogniva safe for diabetics?
The tolerance will depend on the level and tolerance of each diabetic individual.
What is the recommended direction on how to take Cogniva?
The Cogniva chews were designed to be chewed rather than sucked on. If you prefer, the Cogniva chews can be cut into small pieces and swallowed with a beverage. Ingesting Cogniva in this way delivers the same benefits as the intended chew and swallow method. Some people will find it dissolves more efficiently with a beverage or warm drink.
