CogniYouth is a recently-released nootropic formula that promises to provide all-natural brain support to help you feel smarter. Here’s our CogniYouth review.
What is CogniYouth?
CogniYouth is a brand new nootropic supplement sold online at CogniYouth.com. The supplement contains 10 ingredients and is manufactured in the United States.
By taking two capsules of CogniYouth per day, you can enjoy the following benefits (according to the manufacturer):
— Better Brain Health
— Better Memory
— Better Concentration
— Increased Mental Energy Levels
— Greater Feeling Of Wellbeing
The ingredients list consists of most of the same ingredients you find in other nootropic formulas. Those ingredients include gingko biloba and Bacopa monnieri, among other popular items. There are also B vitamins – similar to the B vitamins you would find in an energy drink.
CogniYouth is made by an American company based in Marina Del Ray, California. All products are assembled in the United States at a GMP complaint facility.
You can currently only order CogniYouth through a free trial. That free trial lasts 10 days and costs $4.99, although your credit card will automatically be charged $59.99 if you don’t return the supplement within 10 days.
How Does CogniYouth Work?
CogniYouth claims to work using a blend of 10 different ingredients.
Those ingredients include all of the following:
— Ginkgo Biloba: Promotes blood flow to the brain.
— Bacopa Monnieri: Herbal compound that may increase cognition and memory, according to some studies.
— Acetyl L-Carnitine: Amino acid involved in producing energy in the body. It boosts mitochondrial activity, which raises energy in cells throughout your body and brain.
— Huperzine A: Huperzine A promotes cognition by inhibiting the mechanisms of an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, which is the key neurotransmitter involved in memory formation.
— Rhodiola Rosea: Scandinavian herbal extract that has been shown in some studies to relieve stress on the body.
— Choline Bitartrate: Natural precursor to acetylcholine, which is the key memory forming neurotransmitter in the body.
— DMAE Bitartrate: Raises acetylcholine levels and works in conjunction with choline bitartrate.
— Phosphatidylserine: A phospholipid that plays a key role in cognitive function while decreasing cognitive decline.
— Vitamin B6 and B12: Water-soluble vitamins that boost energy throughout the body.
The manufacturer of CogniYouth lists its full ingredients chart online, and none of the ingredients are hidden behind proprietary formulas. That’s actually surprisingly rare in the nootropics world, where manufacturers will often hide low dosages in proprietary extracts. Here’s the full ingredients list:
In general, CogniYouth’s ingredients are relatively weak. Typically, nootropic users will take 550 to 3,000mg of choline bitartrate per day, for example. In fact, the FDA’s recommended dosage of choline is 325mg daily for women and 550mg daily for men. That makes the two capsule dose of 200mg of choline bitartrate in CogniYouth seem relatively weak.
Other ingredients, like Bacopa monnieri extract, are also relatively weak. Examine.com reports that the standard dose for Bacopa monnieri is 300mg, which is the same amount included in CogniYouth. However, that recommended dose assumes 55% total bacoside content, while CogniYouth’s formula includes just 20% bacosides content.
Based on the weak ingredients, it’s unlikely that CogniYouth will have a significant or noticeable impact on your cognitive performance. The formula contains less-than-standard dosages of virtually all of its listed ingredients.
CogniYouth is available exclusively online through CogniYouth.com. You won’t find it on Amazon or at local supplement retailers.
At the official website, you’ll see advertisements for a “free trial” offer of CogniYouth, or a “10 day risk-free trial”. That trial isn’t really free, but it’s advertised as being free. Here’s how it actually works and how much it will actually cost you:
— You pay $4.99 for the trial today. Within 3 to 5 business days, you’ll receive a full-sized bottle (60 capsules) of CogniYouth delivered to your address.
— You have 14 days from the date you order your free trial to test the product. Those 14 days include the days the supplement is in transit to your address.
— 14 days after you ordered your free trial, your credit card is charged $59.99 for the full-sized package of CogniYouth you already ordered.
— After your credit card is charged the $59.99 fee, you’re automatically subscribed to the CogniYouth autoship program, which delivers one full-sized supplement to your address every month at a price of $59.99 + $4.99 shipping.
This information is hidden in the fine print at the bottom of the CogniYouth ordering form, so the manufacturer isn’t exactly being honest with its policy. Few people expect to see over $100 of charges appear on their credit card within 30 days of ordering a $5 “free” trial online, but that’s exactly how CogniYouth operates.
Who Makes CogniYouth?
CogniYouth is made by a company that calls itself – appropriately enough – CogniYouth.com. That company lists its address as the following:CogniYouth
3007 W. Washington Blvd, Suite 225
Marina Del Ray, California 90292.
You can contact the company by email or phone at [email protected] or at 855-511-1322. The company claims to manufacture all of its supplements in the United States in an FDA-registered facility – although it doesn’t list where that facility is located
Ultimately, CogniYouth is another nootropic supplement that is overpriced and under-powered. Its ingredients are all below the recommended minimum dosages based on scientific studies performed to date. Despite that fact, the supplement is priced at a whopping $60 per bottle, or $1 per pill, and it relies on a shady autoship program to increase its revenue. For all of these reasons, CogniYouth is one nootropic supplement that is likely to affect your bank account more than your brain.
