    I have been taking Cognitex for about 3 years now and have definitely noticed a difference in my memory. I am now able to recall things quicker and think clearer. I am a veterinary assistant and must be able to remember things and think fast on my feet. I was noticing that I was having trouble recalling things as quickly as I used to be able to do. I am in my upper 50's now and needed something that could help with my memory & alertness and needed it immediately. Cognitex has done the trick. I have just ordered the newer version of Cognitex and am waiting to see how it works. I am expecting even greater results from it also. Thank you once again Life Extension for helping me with my aging problems.

    It seems if I only have one project to concentrate on I am fine, but when my mind is filled with the myriad of assignements I tend to forget names of people sitting right in front of me. So it's difficult to tell whether these pills are really doing the job of jogging my memory much. In the beginning it seemed like it was working but lately, I'm forgetting things.

                  The difference wasn't immediate, but after a month of supplementation with this product my mental clarity is distinctly sharper. The product feel nourishing as opposed to artificially stimulating, like coffee.

                            This product has aided me in my work performance. Prior to taking it, I experienced brain fog during the 2nd half of the workday, but now that I have been taking it for over a year, I am much sharper during the 2nd half of the day. The regular Cognitex is better, but due to price, I switched to Basics, and it works pretty well also.

                              Used 90 days, no noticable effect. Have now tried Cognitex with NeuroProtection Complex for 30 days. Had to quit as it gave me serious flatulence and very loose bowels. Will return extra bottles for a refund.

                                I don't think most people really believe that a supplement like Cognitex has an effect beyond placebo, but I will tell you it makes a huge difference. At times I'll get busy and lapse in taking it for a few days. I'll get back to some project that requires a lot of concentration and I really know its missing.

                                        We love the Basics because the original was just out of our reach........we get auto delivery and pay for it every month and get the same price as if we were ordering all at once(12 at a time)and that is such a good deal..........we love Basics and it has helped us both(husband and I) with everyday concentration, and things are easier to recall and puzzles are not so frustrating anymore. Good stuff.

                                        I was really excited to receive this product, yet was a bit disappointed in the capsule. It is listed as a "softgel", however the capsule is more rigid and large. I find it hard to swallow and have had it lodge trying to go down. Would like to see at least a more pliable capsule. I am anxious to receive the benetifts of these supplements!!

                                        It helps me with clarity. Allows me to read faster and improves my comprehension. The only issue I have is that you have to keep it refrigerated during the summer time or the outer coating melts off the capsules.

                                          I have been taking Cognitex for about 3 years now and have definitely noticed a difference in my memory. I am now able to recall things quicker and think clearer. I am a veterinary assistant and must be able to remember things and think fast on my feet. I was noticing that I was having trouble recalling things as quickly as I used to be able to do. I am in my upper 50's now and needed something that could help with my memory & alertness and needed it immediately. Cognitex has done the trick. I have just ordered the newer version of Cognitex and am waiting to see how it works. I am expecting even greater results from it also. Thank you once again Life Extension for helping me with my aging problems.

                                              I purchased this for my husband and we both ended up taking it. With the increase in cognitive decline we take it as a preventive measure. We might never know if it works but we'd rather be as proactive as possible. It's simple to take - one capsule in the morning and evening. No hassle product with no noticeable side effects.

                                                My 90 year old mother and I have been using Cognitex Basics for almost a year. It helps me focus, and has improved my mother's memory, balance and equilibrium. We will continue to take this supplement.

                                                    I wasn't sure if it was working. I ran out and realized that I could not remember some things. I re-ordered and found that my recall is definitely better!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                        Prior to the introduction of Cognitex Basics by LEF, I was a long time daily user of Cognitex which I found helped my concentration. Cognitex is a pricey product but I liked the results. However, some ingredients in Cognitex duplicated some that I was already obtaining from other supplements. Along comes Cognitex Basics which contains only those ingredients that I was primarily seeking in Cognitex and at much reduced cost. I'm very pleased with the product. It provides a good combination of brain health supplements in one product which simplifies my daily regiment and reduces my cost considerably.
