Ingredients of CogniShield
This is a "nootropic" product, which means that it serves to improve memory mainly. It is said on the official website that one of its main ingredients was first discovered in the 1960s By Soviet Scientists during the Cold War. The product was initially meant to help people suffering from motion sickness. There is a video with Adam Rand explaining how his father with Alzheimer's disease tried the ingredients found in CogniShield and experienced improvement. The manufacturer of the product also claims that the ingredients are also tested and verified by a GMP-certified third party laboratory. These are really loud promises but does the supplement really work? Let's try to answer this question by looking at the main ingredients of CogniShield.
As it was already mentioned, the supplement intends to improve attentiveness and memory by boosting oxygen flow to the brain, protecting it from chemical and physical assaults, increasing the production of dopamine and serotonine, and ceasing premature dying of brain cell. The manufacturer of the product does not say much about the ingredient in CogniShield, however, I made my research and learnt that it only contains four active ingredients. These include Piracetam, Choline, Noopept, and L-Theanine, all of which are claimed to be scientifically proven nootropic ingredients.
CogniShield company claims that all of these four ingredients are perfectly dosed, but unfortunately, they never tell the dosage of any of these components. This information is not mentioned anywhere on their website, online sales copy or product packaging. That's a red flag. The matter is that the scientists have used exact doses of choline to define whether it works to boost memory in people. But CogniShield does not mention any doses. If a manufacturer doesn't list dosages of ingredients, it means that they are trying to trick you by offering you an overpriced product at a small dose. So, you are not expected to achieve any positive results.
So, CogniShield contains only four ingredients but it is unknown whether there are any other ingredients in the supplement. What we know for sure is that there is a big dose of caffeine in these pills. This component can be seen in many other nootropics too. Let us have a closer look at the main ingredients in CogniShield. L-Theanine is an ingredient that is used to relieve stress. It is naturally contained in green tea. It is also responsible for calming down the nervous system and relaxing the mind. This ingredient can be associated with a number of adverse reactions which will be described in the next part of this review.
Choline/B-Vitamin is another ingredient in the product's formula. Its function is to boost memory. This vitamin can be found in many foods such as almonds and eggs. Piracetam is another component that serves the same function. It is used to improve general cognition and to treat cognitive impairment. However, this ingredient lacks human studies, especially involving people having cognitive decline. Even though piracetam is added to many supplements, it actually provides limited benefits for both sick and healthy people. The latter experience little to no cognitive benefit. Piracetam requires more studies and evidence proving its effectiveness.
Noopept was discovered by the Soviet Scientists in the 1960s. It is promised to slow down the effects of Alzheimer's disease. As a matter of fact, this nootropic ingredient is badly studied and may cause a number of serious side effects described further.
