Cognityl, herbal supplement for concentration

Forget fatigue and be effective with Cognityl



Herbal supplement for concentration.

Cognityl® is an innovative herbal supplement for concentration, associating highly active xanthines (caffeine and theobromine) in well defined ratio and concentrations for an optimal action on intellectual fatigue and exhaustion.


Cognityl® improves mental energy (concentration, motivation, cognition, well-being and alertness) and reduces physical fatigue specifically at the level of muscular cells.




Cognityl Formulation


Herbal supplement Cognityl® contains cocoa extract and supercritical tea extract, and is standardized in theobromine and caffeine in form of tablets of 805 mg.


Each tablet contains 250 mg of theobromine and 19 mg of caffeine.


Recommended usage is 1 tablet a day before a meal with a large glass of water.



Cognityl and 

Caffeine and theobromine stimulate concentration.


The composition of herbal supplement Cognityl® has been inspired by Smit's experiments.

Smit et al. have proven in a clinical trial in 2004 that an oral dose of 250 mg of theobromine and 19 mg of caffeine helps people to concentrate, feel energetic, and develop a feeling of well-being and pleasure [1],[2].


In 2004 [1], the effects of cocoa constituents (caffeine and theobromine) were tested on mood and performance and the activity compared to that of the same amount of xanthines found in cocoa powder and to placebo.


The profile of effects of cocoa powder with methylxanthines and the methylxanthines alone were found to be identical: an increase in energetic arousal and hedonic tone, performance improvements on simple reaction time and information processing, all this compared to placebo.


With this study, it was concluded that theobromine and caffeine were responsible for the psychopharmacological activity of chocolate.


Thanks to its well-balanced dose in xanthines, Cognityl® is a psychostimulant without over-stimulating and tachycardia side-effects.
