Cognivance is a new nootropic supplement that claims to be scientifically formulated to boost memory recall and focus.
Find out how Cognivance works today in our review.
What is Cognivance?
Cognivance is a nootropic supplement priced at around $50 for a 30 day supply. The supplement claims to contain “the highest quality natural ingredients” clinically proven to boost brain health.
The supplement was created by Dr. Charles Day. Dr. Day claims the supplement can be used to fight the onset of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. So if you want to prevent cognitive decline and boost the focus, clarity, and memory of your brain, then Cognivance claims to help you do it.
How Does Cognivance Work?
Cognivance works by using three proprietary blends (all of which are registered trademarks) as well as a multivitamin blend. The main formulas include:
— Sharp-PS Gold: Made up of a blend of 100mg of phosphatidylserine-docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that helps to deliver DHA to the brain.
— BCM-95: Contains a proprietary form of curcumin (250mg). The manufacturer claims their version of curcumin has better bioavailability than any other form in the world. Curcumin boosts your immune system’s functionality.
— SelenoExcell: An antioxidant blend designed to fight free radicals and reduce brain damage.
— VITACOG Blend: VITACOG contains a blend of natural vitamins and nutrients, including mostly B vitamins. Those vitamins include all of the following: Vitamin A 5,000IU, Vitamin C 60mg, Vitamin D3 1,000IU, Vitamin E 30IU, Vitamin K 25mcg, Thiamine 1.5mg, Riboflavin 1.7mg, Niacin 20mg, Vitamin B6 20mg, Folic Acid 800mcg, Vitamin B12 500mcg, Biotin 300mcg, Pantothenic Acid 10mg, Iron 9mg, Iodine 150mcg, Zinc 15mg, Selenium 200mcg, Chromium 120mcg, Molybdenum 75mcg, Boron 75mcg, Nickel 5mcg, Silicon 10mg, Tin 10mcg, Vanadium 10mcg.
Together, these ingredients purportedly help to reduce brain atrophy (i.e. the death of your brain cells) and brain cell degeneration.
How to Use Cognivance
Using Cognivance seems straightforward. The manufacturer recommends taking two capsules every day with food. You take one capsule in the morning and another in the evening.
You should not exceed the daily recommended dose of Cognivance and you should also not use Cognivance unless you’re 18 years of age or older.
The manufacturer reports that there are no known side effects of Cognivance. However, you should talk to a doctor if you have an existing medical condition (although there are no known complications).
How to Buy Cognivance
You can currently only buy Cognivance from the official manufacturer. The supplement is not available from any retail stores or from Amazon.
When purchased from the manufacturer, you’ll pay $49.99 for a 30 day supply of Cognivance.
You can, however, save money by signing up for the Cognivance autoship program (it’s called a “subscription” program from the manufacturer).
That autoship program will deliver repeat shipments of Cognivance to your doorstep every month for $47.50 per month. You’ll automatically receive repeated shipments of Cognivance until you cancel.
There is no official refund policy on the Cognivance website. However, reports online have stated that the company has a friendly customer service team ready to work with customers on a case-by-case basis to handle their refunds. If you tried the product honestly for the recommended amount of time and didn’t experience any results, then Cognivance, LLC will refund your money.
Scientific Evidence for Cognivance
Cognivance’s manufacturer happily shares scientific evidence for Cognivance at the product’s official website. You can view that page here.
That scientific evidence talks about the ingredients in Cognivance. One study talks about how phosphatidylserine improved memory function of elderly Japanese subjects, for example, while another talked about how curcumin demonstrated promising results on those with Alzheimer’s disease.
There’s one problem with all of these studies: none of the studies have been performed on Cognivance itself. Instead, they’ve just been performed on the individual ingredients in Cognivance.
In other words, we don’t know how well Cognivance might work when all of these ingredients are used together.
Who Makes Cognivance?
Cognivance is made by a company called Cognivance, LLC. That company lists its address as:250 Grandview Drive, Suite 10
Ft. Mitchell, KY 41017
That company makes Cognivance in the United States in a cGMP- manufacturing facility. The company appears to be led by a man named Dr. Charles Day, who we’ll talk about in the next section.
Who is Dr. Charles Day?
Dr. Charles Day has over 40 years of experience as a research scientist for a company called the Upjohn Company. According to his official bio on Cognivance.com, Dr. Charles Day has “dedicated his life to creating formulations that have true therapeutic impacts on serious disease states.”
The Upjohn Company might sound like a fictional organization, but it’s a real company that merged with Monsanto in the 1990s before being recently purchased by Pfizer.
Unfortunately, there’s little information about Dr. Charles Day available online. All searches for Dr. Charles Day and the Upjohn Company link to articles about Cognivance.
Conclusion: Who Should Use Cognivance?
The manufacturer recommends Cognivance to men and women of all ages (over the age of 18) who are struggling with focus, memory problems, or cognitive decline.
Some take it as a preventative medication to fight off Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases, while others take it to boost the power of their healthy brain.
