Brain Science

Why do you need to feed your brain?

The average human brain is roughly the size of a cauliflower but...

Your brain is the most important thing you own. You owe it to yourself to properly care for it.

See what Cognitively's Nootropic blend can do to help boost your brain power.

The average adult brain contains around one hundred billion brain cells each connected to 1,000 others.

That’s 100 trillion connections (synapses) that need the correct nutrients. Our brains continually change throughout life. Developing in childhood and into adult life, the pressures of work and family build up over time. Before, finally, we enter old age and oxidative decline. 


Cognitively's Focus is powerful blend of four ingredient groups in high and beneficial doses. Many supplements use insufficient amounts, far too low to stand any chance of delivering real-world results. Cognitively is different.

Produced to help our founders daughter manage her ADHD, our powerful Nootropic, addresses the common problems associated with ADHD.

Using Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids and Botanicals from Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. The Vitamins and minerals used will be familiar, but you may not realise how important they are.

Read our product pages for more in-depth information on how each ingredient affects the brain.

Amino Acids are the building blocks of your body and these compounds play numerous critical roles inside you. They are needed for vital processes such as building proteins, synthesising hormones and neurotransmitters that carry messages around the brain. Dopamine and Serotonin are the most commonly known neurotransmitters.

Dopamine is associated with pleasure, alongside learning, memory, motor system function and more.

Serotonin is responsible for regulating your mood and memory function, but it also helps with sleep, sexual function, appetite, temperature regulation and social behaviour among other things. Serotonin also affects your mood, which is why it's often a target of medications used to treat depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.

The Botanicals used in Cognitively supplements are taken from herbs used in ancient Chinese and Ayurveydic medicine.

In Western medicine, we often use the same botanicals but we change the name. For example, Digoxin can help an irregular heartbeat and is taken from the Foxglove flower. Never underestimate the power of nature!

Ayurveda is an Indian medical practice that has been used for thousands of years. The philosophy is to cleanse the body and, in doing so, restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveydic methods use diet, herbal medicines, exercise, meditation, breathing, physical therapy, all as part of a holistic regime.

Chinese & Ayurvedic medicinal beliefs are thousands of years old and agree on the modern effects of these botanicals. Examples included in the supplements are 5 HTP, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, Green Tea and Bacopa Monnieri.
