The science between the two nootropics have been studied for a while now and just a couple of weeks ago, Nexira launched a unique synergistic combination of the two ingredients two help improve people’s cognitive ability.
The studies made of the combination, called Cognivia, showed that the nootropic can enhance the memory capacity (speed of memory AND special & long-term memory). But also, better learning process, concentration and alertness.
Compared to just buying or consuming Spanish Sage and Garden Sage, the benefit of Cognivia is the manufacturing process. The company is using Acacia gum to protect the sage from oxidation and drying up. This ultimately means that we regulars can buy it easier as a supplement – rather than growing the leaves on our back garden!
Increasing Concentration, Alertness and Learning Process
So when should you use Cognivia?
There are plenty of uses for the supplement. So far, Cognivia have been used for gaming and programmers. Having the similar problem of requiring several hours of grinding in front of the computer, this supplement is perfect for increasing alertness over an extended period of time.
Pending EFSA claim…
The European Food Safety Authority have verified that Cognivia complies with food supplements regulations.
Also, you will find out that there is a pending EFSA claim on essential oil:
Helps to maintain optimal mental well-being. E g. maintaining concentration, attention and memory.
