Cogni Clear is marketed as a potent and well balanced supplement for proper cognitive function. Specifically, the main benefits advertised are enhanced conscious intellectual activity, imagination, and the ability to concentrate and learn. The formula is a combination of nutrients who work to improve brain metabolism and reduce mental stress in order to achieve the benefits advertised by the formula. In addition, these are vegetarian capsules.

No specific ailment claims are mentioned by the manufacturer. The product is recommended to adults (both young and elderly people) for the day-to-day care and nutrition of the brain for normal brain function.

Cogni Clear is manufactured by Nutraceutical and sold under the Solaray Brand, one of the many owned by the company. Nutraceutical was founded in 1932 and currently manufactures and sells over 3,000 products. Solaray entered the company’s brand portfolio in 1973 and currently comprises a variety of herbal-, mineral- and vitamin-based products.


1) What is Cogni Clear?

Cogni Clear is a combination of herbal ingredients mostly and a number of other chemicals designed to support normal brain function.

Phosphatidylserine is a substance naturally found in brain neurons and chemically extracted from soy beans. It is used for a number of cognitive dysfunctions or decline related problems, ranging from Alzheimer’s disease to ADHD to improving thinking skills. However, research is still limited. For instance, on the matter of Phosphatidylserine being able to reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive dysfunction in the elderly, FDA concluded insufficient evidence exists. Side effects may include insomnia and stomach upset, particularly when 300 mg doses are exceeded. Not enough is known about its effect on pregnant and nursing women and other drug interactions.

Huperzine A is a substance extracted from the Chinese club moss. Huperzine A is believed to cause increases of the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, hence to have memory and cognitive functions. It is commonly used in treatments for Alzheimer’s, memory and learning enhancement and age-related memory impairment. Huperzine A is likely safe when used for a short time, but can cause some side effects including nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, cramping, increased saliva and urine, inability to control urination and slowed heart rate.

3) What Does Cogni Clear Do?

Promoted as a combination of herbal ingredients as well as other chemicals which play a role in obtaining a proper brain functioning, Cogni Clear is sold by vegetarian capsules, which makes the formula accessible for everybody. One of its components is Phosphatidylserine, a substance chemically extracted from soy beans and naturally found in brain neurons. It has been used to treat a variety of cognitive dysfunctions and problems related with the decline, such as Alzheimer’s and ADHD. On the other hand, research is currently limited.

For example, reducing the risk of dementia and other cognitive functions in older people doesn’t rely on sufficient evidence. Side effects related to consumption of Phosphatidylserine include upset stomach and insomnia. There isn’t enough information regarding the safety of Phosphatidylserine supplements in pregnant or lactating women.

Another ingredient found in Cogni Clear is Huperzine A, a substance extracted from Chinese club moss. It is believed to increase the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, thus determining an improvement in cognitive functions. This extract has been used in treating memory and learning problems. Even though it is viewed as likely safe for a short time use, treatment can lead to some side effects, such as vomiting, inability to control urination, and nausea.

The overall effectiveness of this remedy can’t state because there are no online customer testimonials.
