Cogniva is an innovative nootropic brain health product exclusive to Immunotec.

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.

The mental process of knowing, which includes perceiving, recognizing, conceiving, judging, reasoning, and imagining.

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.

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”.

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”.

Synapses are the connection points through which neurons communicate with each other. Signals are sent across synapses though specific molecules called “neurotransmitters”.

Neurotransmitters are a diverse group of naturally-produced chemicals with signals that are sent from neuron-to-neuron through connection points called synapses.

Syna-PS50 is Immunotec's unique and proprietary (trademarked) blend of scientifically researched ingredients that includes phosphatidylserine (PS).

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.

The 50 represents the 50 mg of phosphatidylserine included in the formula.

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.

  • 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

Examples include: students for improved focus and learning, adults to help cope with a hectic lifestyle, and the elderly for memory support.

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.

Currently, Immunotec has not applied for a licence to market Cogniva to children.

It is recommended that pregnant or lactating women ask their own health professional before taking Cogniva.

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.

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.

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.

The recommended dose is one chew per day. More than that increases the risk of side effects.

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.

Any concomitant use of supplements with medications should be discussed with your treating health professional.

Keep the bag sealed. Avoid exposure to heat.

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.

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”.

Yes, Cogniva is gluten-free.

Yes, Cogniva is vegan.

Cogniva does not contain preservatives.

Cogniva does not contain artificial sweeteners.

The sweetener used in Cogniva is raw cane sugar.

Cogniva contains 3g of raw cane sugar.

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

The tolerance will depend on the level and tolerance of each diabetic individual.

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.
