    Support Your Brain Function with NuMedica Cognitein

    The aging process and our exposure to everyday environmental pollutants can take a toll on our brains. Lifestyle factors can also impact how our brains function as we age. Fortunately, some supplements that contain vitamins, minerals, and healthful compounds like amino acids and antioxidants can support overall brain health and may provide effective support for cognitive function.

    Worldwide, as many as 55 million people suffer from some form of dementia, but even with normal aging, people may notice reduced cognitive function. In many cases, the aging body supports reduced levels of compounds that the brain needs to function optimally. By taking a supplement that contains these compounds, we can better ensure that we're supporting these levels.

    Cognitein contains a unique combination of ingredients that may reduce risks for cognitive decline and may support healthy brain aging. These ingredients are already present in your body, and your brain has always relied upon them to function normally. By supplementing your body's natural levels, you can make sure that your brain has the compounds it needs for healthful cognitive function. Learn about this supplement's ingredients as follows.

    Magnesium L-Threonate (Magtein)

    A novel form of magnesium developed by researchers at MIT, Magnesium L-Threonate (also referred to as Magtein, Mg L-Threonate, or Mag L-Threonate) has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier better than other forms of magnesium. Magnesium plays a vital role in relaying neural signals between the brain and body. It is found on brain receptors needed for memory and learning.

    Additionally, magnesium helps to activate our body's enzymes, is needed to form synapses, and even reduces amyloid plaque, which are associated with conditions like Alzheimer's disease. Magnesium even supports healthy sleep patterns and helps us to more effectively fend off stress. Collectively, all of these functions help to support brain health.

    L-Threonine is an essential amino acid that allows the magnesium to more easily pass from the blood to the brain where it's needed to support cognitive function. Threonine is an essential amino acid, one our bodies' cannot produce. We typically obtain threonine in our diet by consuming foods such as beef, pork, cheese, sunflower seeds, lentils, wheat germ, and almonds. Threonine helps to regulate protein balance in the body and helps support the body's connective tissues.


    Taurine is an amino acid found in the body as well as in many of the foods we eat such as dairy products, meat, and fish. Like other amino acids, taurine is one of the building blocks of proteins needed to support the function of the brain, immune system, and even the heart. Recent research has suggested that taurine may play a role in supporting long-term memory. Scientists are continuing to study taurine's potential as a supplement that may help ward off neurodegenerative conditions associated with aging.

    In addition, there is also some scientific evidence that taurine may help support brain health when it's been exposed to certain toxins such as those sometimes found in water. Taurine also helps the body to maintain hydration and cellular electrolyte balance.


    Found in tea and some mushrooms, L-theanine, or theanine, is an amino acid that supports brain health in numerous ways. L-theanine increases levels of neurotransmitters in the brain that are needed for concentration, alertness, mood, emotion regulation, and even sleep. This amino acid is also associated with energy and appetite.

    By elevating levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, L-theanine has a calming effect on the brain without inducing drowsiness, but it also may help promote healthy sleep. Theanine may help reduce symptoms of both mental and physical stress with its calming effect on the brain.

    Support Brain Health with NuMedica Cognitein

    Cognitein contains these ingredients to form a powerful supplement designed to support your brain health even as it ages. This supplement does not contain peanuts, soy, wheat, milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, or tree nuts. It is contained in vegetable capsules and is suitable for vegetarians. It is also gluten free.

    If you're concerned about brain health and supporting your cognitive function, you may discuss the use of this supplement with your healthcare provider. Always check with your doctor before embarking on a supplement regimen.

Shipping & Handling

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.

Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.

International Shipping

Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.

FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.

We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.

Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.

Shipping Refrigerated Products

Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.


If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.

Changes, Returns and Refunds

If you want to make a change to your order, please email us as soon as possible so we can make the change before your order ships. If your order has already shipped you may incur additional shipping charges for the second shipment and the return label for any products returned.

If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction. Problems of this nature must be reported to us within 5 business days of the package delivery date documented by the carrier status.

We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.

If your order has already shipped you can return any un-opened products within 30 days of receiving your order for a 100% refund of the price paid for the product, less the actual shipping charges we incurred to get the product to you originally and then returned, less a $10 restocking fee.

You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label.
