Improves Brain Health Through the Gut-Brain-Microbiome Axis
Your gut feeling is an example of how your gut works with your brain. Recent research shows that gut health and the gut microbiome strongly influence brain health. Your gut bacteria can control your thoughts, emotions, and stress resilience. Also, many people with mental health and neurological disorders have dysbiosis and digestive issues. Often, an improvement in gut bacteria composition.
Cognibiotics contain bacteria strains that are known to improve mood and cognitive function. In addition, the Chaihu Shugan San herb formula in Cognibiotics works by improving the have dysbiosis and digestive issues. However, Cognibiotics is only meant for general brain health and not approved to treat any disease.
Boost BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor)
Boost low mood, reduce anxiety
Produce mood-boosting vitamins (e.g. K and B-12)
Rejuvenate your brain and improve brain-gut connection
Generate happiness chemicals
Enhance cognitive performance
Promote a Balanced Stress Response and Stress Resilience
Stress can cause anxiety, poor sleep, abnormal appetite, reduced performance, and many other negative health effects. Adaptogens are herbs or substances that help reduce the stress response, promote calmness, or improve your ability to deal with the stress. Cognibiotics contain several adaptogenic herbs such as Schisandra and Chinese licorice.
Promote Healthy Acetylcholine Levels
Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter for learning and memory. P. multiflorum, S. miltiorrhiza, and R. glutinosa in Cognibiotics are cholinergic herbs that increase acetylchol levels.
Improve Neurotransmitter Balance
In animal studies, the probiotics L. plantarum, L. helveticus, L. fermentum, L. rhamnosus, and B. infantis promote the balance of neurotransmitters in the brain. The good bacteria also help ensure that the used neurotransmitters are
Improve Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor
The good bacteria and herbs in Cognibiotics work together to stimulate the production of proteins that help the brain grow, reorganize, and adapt. These proteins include brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neural growth factor (NGF). Increasing these proteins help with learning, memory, and mood.
Protecting Neurons Against Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress comes from mental-emotional stress, toxic exposure, inflammation, poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle, and more. Nowadays, most people don’t consume enough antioxidants in their diets. When oxidative stress exceeds your body’s antioxidant capacity, it can damage cells. Oxidative stress can contribute to brain fog, fatigue, and neurologic disorders.
Herbs in Cognibiotics contain antioxidants that can cross the blood-brain barrier and protect your brain from day-to-day oxidative stress.
Increases Blood Flow to the Brain
Your brain needs oxygen and vital nutrients to work well, but it’s also the organ that’s hardest to deliver blood to. It’s located at the highest point in the body and has many tiny blood vessels. Stress, poor blood vessel health, oxidative stress, and low blood pressure can reduce blood flow to the brain. When the brain gets reduced blood flow, it doesn’t get healthy levels of oxygen and nutrients. The deprivation can cause fatigue, brain fog, poor cognitive function, and low mood.
The Chaihu-Shugan San herb formula normalizes brain blood flow in depression patients.
Producing Beneficial Postbiotics, Such as Butyrate
Postbiotics are produced when your probiotic bacteria ferment the prebiotic fibers, such as the small fatty acids propionate and butyrate.
Low mood, brain fog, and fatigue are caused by sluggish neurons that can’t produce enough energy (ATP). The small fatty acids. can enter the brain, energize the sluggish neurons, and lower oxidative stress Your neurons can also burn the fatty acids for energy. Butyrate also boosts BDNF levels.
Cognibiotics combine the power of Chinese medicine with synergistic brain-boosting probiotics.
Cognibiotics contains two Traditional Chinese Medicine formulas traditionally used for both mental health and digestive issues by promoting harmony between the brain and the gut
The Chai Hu Shu Gan San formula, which improves stress resilience, mood, and cognitive function by improving the gut flora
The An Shen Bu Xin San formula, traditionally used to calm the spirit, contains several cognitive performance-enhancing herbs
These herb formulas were invented 2,200 years ago, but modern-day research has shown that they boost neurotransmitter levels, improve the gut microbiome, and combat oxidative stress. They are also adaptogenic herbs that promote a balanced stress response.
The beneficial bacteria boost mood, wellbeing, memory while promoting a balanced stress response by:
Directly speaking to your brain via the vagus nerve that links between the gut and the brain
Controlling your happy, rewarding and relaxing neurotransmitter
Producing beneficial nutrients that can jump-start sluggish neurons and combating oxidative stress
Boosting neuronal growth and branching, such as by increasing a protein called BDNF, which improves happiness and memory
Promoting a healthy and balanced stress response
Promoting a balanced inflammatory response, since excess inflammation can contribute to mental health and cognitive problems
When To Take CogniBiotics?
The goal is to deliver the probiotics to your large intestine relatively intact and maximize absorption of the herbs, so you want to minimize their exposure to your stomach acid and digestive enzymes. Your gut secretes digestive enzymes and stomach acid when you have food in your stomach. Therefore, you should take your Cognibiotics on an empty stomach. However, if you get stomach upset from taking it without food or cannot take it without food for any other reasons, it is still beneficial when taken with meals.
Take Cognibiotics first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Some people also find significant cognitive and mood boosts when they take Cognibiotics before or with lunch and dinner.
Because Cognibiotics contain probiotics, be sure to take it at least an hour away from antibiotics or supplements that have antibacterial properties.
Cognibiotics and Depression
The latest research shows that, aside from life events, the following factors contribute to depression, cognitive dysfunction, and other mental health problems:
Cognibiotics promotes good mood, mental health, cognitive function, and stress resilience by:

Supporting the gut and brain barriers

Reduced intestinal discomfort
I started taking these pro/prebiotics because I had some intestinal discomfort and bloating that I didn't know how it had originated. I started taking this product and haven't stopped since (~1 month). My discomfort is gone, and I haven't had to think about my intestine since I started taking them. I am still to test how much they affect my cognition.
