Dietary supplement manufacturer Life Extension has introduced Cognitex Basics for cognitive health. Cognitex Basics contains phosphatidylserine and alpha-glycerylphosphoryl choline, supplied by Enzymotec (Morristown, NJ).

Phosphatidylserine is considered a key building block of the brain, but natural stores of the compound can decrease with age. Alpha-glycerylphosphoryl choline is another nutrient that depletes with natural aging. Its use in brain health relates to activating the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
