Your brain may only make up 2% of your body weight, but did you know that it requires 20% of your body’s energy to function? If you want to boost your brainpower, improve concentration and focus and enhance your mental energy you need to feed your brain what it needs. And what it needs is Cognizin®.
The Cognizin® nootropic as formulated at 250mg in LYMA is what your brain needs to remain powered-up, alert and firing on all cylinders, all day long.
Cognizin® is a form of citicoline - a potent brain-health nutrient - that has been clinically proven to enhance mental performance, concentration and attention. Cognizin® is nature’s way of keeping your brain balanced, healthy and alert to your environment, and of supporting you in maintaining your mental edge.
Cognizin® is a patented form of citicoline. Citicoline is a nutrient naturally found in every cell in the human body, but it is particularly important to the development and maintenance of brain health. Cognizin® is able to help fuel mental processing without the ‘crash’ associated with artificial stimulants such as caffeine.
Clinical research has shown that the cognizin supplement boosts mitochondrial health, resulting in more energised brain cells. When your mitochondria are powered up, your brain cells are able to produce more Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). Sometimes referred to as the ‘molecular unit of currency’, ATP is the primary energy carrier in all cells and is responsible for driving the nerve impulses and chemical synthesis that allow brain cells to communicate with one another.
Improving communication between brain cells is fundamental to maintaining good cognitive health. KSM-66® Ashwagandha as formulated at 600mg in LYMA can further support inter-cell communication because it promotes the formation of dendrites in the brain; the greater the number of dendrites you have in your brain, the more robust your brain health will be.
To sustain concentration and increase your attention span your brain needs two things: sufficient energy and efficient communication between neurons. One of the numerous Cognizin® benefits is to support both of these mechanisms by supplying brain cells with the nutrients they need to flourish.
In addition to supporting healthy brain metabolism, Cognizin® also protects your brain against free radical damage and provides your body with something called ‘phospholipids’. Phospholipids are a fatty substance that make up a major component of all cell membranes in the body. They make up 30% of your brain, ensuring neuronal membrane integrity and enabling communication between nodes. In simple terms, phospholipids are fundamental to your ability to think.
Cognizin® has been clinically proven repeatedly to boost and reduce mental fatigue in human subjects; resulting in enhanced focus and attention, and a sharper mental experience.
One study, carried out by researchers at Harvard University, used brain-scanning technology to observe neural changes in people supplementing with Cognizin® over a six week period. Results showed that those who had taken the supplement demonstrated increased brain activity and sustained attention when it came to tackling difficult tasks.
Another study, carried out by the University of Utah, was able to conclude that supplementing with Cognizin® over a 28-day period had the benefit to drastically improve attention span. Participants also demonstrated an increased likelihood of performing well in various cognitive challenges. Results were strongest when the administered dose was within the 250-500mg range as formulated in LYMA.
Cognizin® is safe and allergen-free, and appears effective across age-brackets. Cognizin® provides the nutrients needed to support healthy cognition, attention and focus.
Wondering if you can mix cognizin and ashwagandha?
Of course you can, both ingredients have both been selected to be part of the LYMA formula to work in harmony to give your body and mental health the little extra support you need to thrive.
Does cognizin affect gaba receptors in the brain?
There is some evidence that citicoline would have some effects on some monoamines, serotonin, nor epinephrine, muscarinic receptors, and glutamate and GABA however there needs to be more clinical studies around the extent of these effects.
If you want to biohack your body and mind and start reaching your potential, Cognizin® is a great place to start.
LYMA’s formula contains Cognizin® alongside patented ingredients that have been meticulously selected for their immune-boosting, stress-busting , beauty-enhancing and adaptogenic properties.
