Cognimax IQ is a supplement in the form of soft gels marketed to support cognitive abilities through enhanced learning, better concentration, and to improve mood. The company behind this supplement is Youthful Health, but we were unable to find much information about this company. All we know is that they are located somewhere within the United States.
Cognimax IQ contains ingredients specially selected because, according to the producing company, they have been shown to “enhance and support cognitive health in men and women of all ages.” According to the website, this formula may improve memory, learning, concentration, mood, alertness, focus and “brain energy.”

What’s Inside?

1) What’s Inside Cognimax IQ?

Cognimax IQ includes the following ingredients: Phosphatidylserine, Huperzine A, Vinpocetine, DMAE, DHA, Dibencozide, and DBioperine.

You can also find DMAE in nootropics like NeuroIgnite.

2) Does Cognimax IQ Work?

Cognimax IQ contains a mixture of herbal extracts that according to the website can offer complete nutritional support and antioxidants.

One of an essential ingredients added to this formula is Phosphatidylserine. Several independent studies have shown that this ingredient may benefit learning, memory, mood and concentration. The manufacturer claims Phosphatidylserine can also improve coordination between brain and its adrenal organs, which will help consumers with stress.

Another key ingredient is Vinpocetine, a semi-synthetic derivate of vincamine. Many scientists believe Vinpocetine may help facilitate blood flow to the brain. It is also thought to support the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), as well as utilization of glucose and oxygen.

The third important ingredient is DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol), an ingredient which may play a significant role in improving neuromotor control and alertness.

As an interesting fact, Cognimax IQ does not contain any of the natural herbal extracts (such s Gingko Biloba) typically seen in these types of supplements.


3) Cognimax IQ Price

One bottle of Cognimax IQ contains 30 soft gels, enough for one month of treatment at the recommended dosage of one capsule per day.

Cognimax IQ is a medium-priced supplement, and it should be available for purchase from some online retailers. Some retailers may offer additional discounts or free shipping.

Bottom Line

4) The Bottom Line – “Does it Work?”

Cognimax IQ has an innovative formula that contains ingredients that are not commonly found in supplements of this type. This is both a good and a bad thing. First, the producing company does allude to research that supports the inclusion of these ingredients. Secondly, there was no elaboration on how these ingredients are supposed to work together, on the chemical bioavailability of these substances and, most important, there are no proofs that this formula can deliver the same benefits as a formula that contains more common ingredients.

Thus, we recommend our readers to focus on products that have been fully researched and proved to work. Also, it is important to seek supplements that are developed by companies with a good reputation and experience in manufacturing such products. Also, it is a good idea to look for products that are accompanied by a free trial sample.

I tried the product and didn’t realize any positive results. I tried to get a refund and was simply met with resistance and excuses. If you try this product do not rely on any part of what they call their 30 day guarantee – the fine print says that it is 30 days from the date you order, not the date you receive it. Next you have to have a return authorization and the remaining product must be received in the warehouse all within 30 days of the order. So it took a week to receive the product, then a week for return shipment, which really means a 2 week guarantee. Then they hide behind these technical issues. Beware!!!!!!

Yes, DO NOT ORDER from this company. I called and received a return authorization from the company. Sent product back. I get billed on the credit card, which was disputed, so the company could not get $119. They turned the matter over to a collection agency. Requested if l have to pay, then send the product back. Their reply is to provide proof of RA# from email, and they will not keep me in collections. They are disregarding l have nothing for $119 and focusing on l don’t have email and didn’t follow directions. So l am supposed to give up $119 for NOTHING. Send back the “medicine”!!

Mr Truth

Well, it`s a load of rubbish really; just a few amino acids in a capsule making incredible claims and using an idiotly famous clown`s name to try and convince people; sorry people; truth is the brain develops by using the brain; not by taking addictive drugs
