Enzymotec and Life Extension have announced the launch of an improved brain formula called: Cognitex. Cognitex was originally introduced in 2000 and since then has been reformulated numerous times to take advantage of the latest novel ingredients that have been proven by scientific studies to enhance cognitive function. Life Extension's premiere cognitive health formula now contains Enzymotec's new product introduction - SharpPS gold(tm).
PhosphatidylSerine (PS) and DHA have long been associated with proper cognitive functioning and their presence is strongly correlated to proper mental development and function. SharpPS gold(tm) is a PS-DHA conjugate, following the natural PS structure found in the human brain and emulating the historical compound originally extracted from bovine brain.
"Its unique composition enables a potent biofunctionality and DHA/PS synergy, which translates into a significant cognitive improvement, compared to any other alternative such as: "regular" DHA or PS", say the scientists at Enzymotec.
According to the US census bureau, there are more than 60 million Americans over the age of 55, or 22% of the population. Similar figures exist in other western countries. Aging has long been associated with mental and cognitive decline.
Moreover, age-related illnesses such as: Alzheimer or Dementia are also associated with a sharp, irreversible decrease in mental and cognitive capabilities, affecting the quality of life of the patient as well as the people that surround him or her. For some time this issue has been the focus of major products launched including functional foods containing omega 3.
