What Cognium is

Cognium is a memory and concentration boosting supplement that comes in the form of pills.

The supplement is manufactured by an American company called Natrol, LLC which is said to have been in the market for more than 35 years.

The company boasts of other products such as weight management pills, vitamins for brain health and women pills.

They have an official website, but it provides very little information on the company itself and cognium.


Here is the list of all the ingredients that cognium comprises of:

* CERA-Q Powder (100mg) – This is from a traditional Korean medicine and is a powerful new ingredient clinically shown to help support learning, mental sharpness and memory.

This is the active ingredient in this supplement.

Other ingredients include:

* Microcrystalline Cellulose – Which is a high quality wood pulp that has been purified, hydrolyzed and dried.

It is used as a pharmaceutical excipient to fill and bind formulations. 

* Stearic Acid – which is known to help prevent water loss, among other benefits.cognium ingredients

* Dicalcium Phosphate – This is used for pharmaceutical reasons to make substances stable, dilute them and make them easy to swallow.

* Glycerine – This is used to prevent water loss and improve athletic performance.

* Magnesium Stearate – Which is used as a lubricant to prevent sticking of ingredients in manufacturing equipment during the compression of chemical powders into solid tablets.

* Maltodextrin – This is a white powder made from wheat, potato starch, corn or rice.

It is commonly used as thickener in products.

* Glycerol Monostaerate – This is an ingredient that is mostly used  as an emulsifier in food.

The other ingredients include Croscarmellose Sodium, Silicon dioxide and Methylcellulose. Some have been used as additives while others help improve the cognium formula.

How it Works

To start with, Natrol claims Cognium has only natural ingredients and is safe to take. Although many people have begged to differ on that.

They claim the supplement works well for all adults of different stress levels, obligations and ages. 

Natrol further claims that the natural ingredients reach the neurotransmitters in the brain easily thereby boosting how it works. 

The ingredients are said to be able to help with areas such as boosting memory so that you can retain information more effectively, among other benefits such as raise energy levels.

Failure to follow that procedure, you will not get a refund.

My Final Thoughts

Cognium seems to have helped a good number of people based on my research. It has gotten fairly good reviews online.

So if it is something you feel can come in handy in for you, I would encourage you to try it out.

However, I would like to mention that I didn’t see many of the well known ingredients in the brain improvement industry like Bacopa Monierri, Valerian root, Ahswagandha and the rest.

These are the some of the ingredients you will see in the brain supplements that are respected in the industry like Qualia Mind, Alpha Brain and Mind Lab Pro.

They increase the effectiveness of the supplements as they are quite efficient in improving the brain’s performance on their own.

Maybe they have been replaced by the CERA-Q Powder, which is the main ingredient.

Either way, if you like Cognium, go ahead and work with it.

Also, if you want a more natural based brain supplement, I would strongly recommend Herberall.

It is an all natural supplement.

And that is where I end this review.

I hope it has been informative enough for you to make a well informed decision.

Let me know if you have any more questions or thoughts on the supplement. I’d love to hear from you. 🙂

  1. A very interesting post about a topic I don’t seem to find many articles about. Thank you for writing the review, I am always up for improving the brain functions but I am also very much aware that we have to be careful about what we take and all the side effects that can come from it. I was glad that you poited out both the good and the bad about the pill. >Not many people do that. Thank you

    1. You are always welcome Barbara, 🙂

      We always do our best to be as real with any product as possible including the possible dangers.

      Have a wonderful day!

  2. I have been experimenting a lot lately with cognitive-enhancing drugs, mostly nootropics, and I just found out about Cognium…

    I’ll definitely try it at some point but could you please let me know more about those side-effects that you mentioned it might have? Is there anything more than this rash itchiness on the chest area?

    Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

    1. Hey there Harry, 

      Well, the side effects of Cognium are mostly mild like headaches, stomach problems, anxiety and nausea. 

      But if you take it while you are on other medications or while you have other medical issues, you may experience the serious side effects like the nervous system issues and the rash on the chest area.

      That is why we recommend that you ensure you check with a doctor that you don’t have other health issues before you take the supplement so that you don’t add to any problems you may be having and things get worse for you.

      Hope I have adequately answered your question.

    This is an interesting concept to take supplements to boost your brain power. Apart from the active ingredient, the other ingredients seem pretty synthetic to me. I would really want a supplement that has been made purely out of natural ingredients. Is there any supplement that you can recommend with that? I would appreciate your help.

    1. Hey there Line, 

      I recommend you check out Qualia Mind, Mind Lab Pro or Alpha Brain. These are the top brain supplements that have been made using natural ingredients that were used decades ago to improve the performance of the brain.

      A huge number of people who have used them have reported really good results. Do let me know how the one you choose to give a go works out for you.

    I was empowered by the topic of the brain supplement Cognium. I didn’t know there was such a thing and that others have been trying products similar to that which is interesting. I like how there was a table of contents of what the reviewer is discussing for everyone to know. I love that there are ingredients as well because, for someone who has sensitive skin, like myself, we have to watch out for harmful substance that reacts to our skin. In this case, I’m afraid I cannot take this supplement because of a couple of ingredients listed. Other than that, the information is helpful and it gives us more of an understanding with the product itself which is nice. 

    1. Hallo there Autumn, 

      Thanks for letting us know you loved the review and found it useful. 

      It goes a long way in helping us do detailed and thorough reviews.

      If you are sensitive to some of the ingredients of cognium, I would recommend you try out another nootropic like Qualia Mind and Alpha Brain.

      Have a wonderful day.
