Cognitive from Living Nutrition is a synergetic formula of lion's mane mushroom and brain-boosting fermented foods. Each bottle comes with 60 capsules that have been expertly formulated by nutritional therapists and packed with 12 organic superfoods. They have carefully selected to actively promote cognitive health and support your general wellbeing.
Living Nutrition have developed their own kefir-kombucha style fermentation to enhance the benefits of the food blend and allow it to be absorbed quickly. In this process, micro-organisms are used to bio-activate the supplement and enhance the effects of its complex nutrients. Then, the fermented foods are gently freeze-dried to maintain freshness. This way you can be sure that each capsule will deliver the maximum effect when you consume it.
Certified as organic by the Soil Association, Living Nutrition's Cognitive also contains no additives, binders or excipients. The capsules are made from vegetable cellulose and the product is registered with the Vegan Society.

Founded by experienced nutritional therapist Graham Botfield, Living Nutrition uses the best foods, herbs, and mushrooms to produce a range of fermented supplements. They use traditional methods and natural ingredients with no chemical or synthetic additives.
By combining education and research with natural processes, they have developed their own kefir-kombucha fermentation method to increase the bioavailability of their supplements. They add thirty-five specific microorganisms to their wholefood mix, to naturally promote the creation of a living food matrix of nutrients, enzymes, and microbes. This is then captured for later consumption by a carefully calibrated freeze-drying process.
Living Nutrition is actively involved in nutritional and scientific studies and often apply the latest discoveries directly to their products. This means that each formulation represents cutting edge information on how to support health and wellbeing.
