There are two very good reasons why sales of Cognitive Enhancers (otherwise known as Nootropics) have been skyrocketing for the past few years. One is that competition these days is rough. Whether it’s straight A’s you’re after, or that big promotion, it takes everything you’ve got to stay on top. The other is the fact that Baby Boomers are aging, and with that comes the fear of Alzheimer’s Disease. With both of those factors closing in on us, it’s no wonder this market has exploded like it has.

CogniShield is a nootropic supplement that focuses on the second reason for the explosion. In fact, CogniShield’s spokesperson Adam Rand, actually formulated the supplement to help his father with his Alzheimer’s Disease. Diagnosed in 2012, he quickly declined while using the medications his doctor prescribed. Rand used the internet to research brain supplements, or nootropics, and came up with 4 nootropic supplements that he put together and gave to his dad. After a few weeks, Rand says his dad started to become his old self again.

Cognishield Review 1Rand then started to take these ingredients himself, and says he learns things 10 times faster than he used to, and has quick and complete recall of the things he’s learned. He became determined to

This is the story they tell to sell CogniShield, but I tend to take the story with a huge grain of salt. Medical scientists and pharmaceutical companies are working extremely hard to come up with a cure or at least something that would slow down the onset of Alzheimer’s. And while I’m no big fan of pharmaceutical companies, I’m positive that if there were something out there curing Alzheimer’s, they’d be on it.

In any case, CogniShield claims to be the formula to clear brain fog and actually reverse the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease, so let’s take a closer look at that formula.

CogniShield Ingredients

There are only 4 ingredients in CogniShield. The website and a video on the CogniShield website explain just how they work their magic. There’s:

  • Phenyl Piracetam which has been clinically studied and shown to improve memory at high doses. It’s been tested in both people with and without cognitive impairment and there were improvements in both groups. It was developed by Russian scientists in the early 1980s by adding the Phenyl atom to the already potent piracetam.
  • Noopept which is believed to be 1000 times more powerful than Piracetam. It was developed by Russian scientists in the 1960s, and is available only with a prescription in that country. Studies show that cognitive improvement is possible with Noopept in patients both with and without cognitive decline. This may be due to its neuroprotective properties. It’s being considered for further study in regards to delaying Alzheimer’s effects.
  • Choline which is a nutrient found in foods that provides the building blocks for memory and the ability to learn. Choline converts to acetylcholine which is the “learning neurotransmitter”. It improves coordination and reaction times, and keeps the communication lines between neurons wide open for business.
  • L-Theanine which comes from tea and neutralizes the effect of caffeine. It reduces anxiety and promotes a relaxed effect without drowsiness. When taken regularly, it also stimulates the brains ability to learn and remember. Studies are also being conducted to determine if it provide protection against neuron cell death, leading to a prevention of cognitive decline.

These are all important nootropic substances, and they claim they’re present in clinical effective doses, but they don’t reveal what those doses are, so we just have to take their word for it. I also want to mention that the claims of reversing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s seem exaggerated at worst, and irresponsible at worst.

How To Use CogniShield

The recommended dose is 2 CogniShield pills per day, preferably taken with a meal.

Where to Buy

You can purchase CogniShield online through one of their official websites, A single bottle with a one month supply costs $69 and comes with a CogniShield Memory Playbook to help you get your memory even more on track naturally.

One nice thing about purchasing CogniShield is that they make it very clear you’re not going to get involved in any ongoing automatic billing or shipping. It’s laid out very clearly right on the order page:

CogniShield No Autopay

There’s also a 60 day money back guarantee that doesn’t require you to return your bottle, and it doesn’t involve any automatic or ongoing payments.

Who Makes CogniShield?

No company name is given for the makers of CogniShield. They only refer to the name CogniShield itself. They provide a contact phone number and email form, so it’s likely you can reach them if necessary, but without a company to back up the product, there’s less accountability than we would like.

CogniShield has no presence with the Better Business Bureau, which is probably a good thing. It means there haven’t been the complaints necessary to generate a presence.

CogniShield Pros and Cons

Advantages of CogniShield

  • The formula contains some of the best nootropic substances available.
  • There’s a solid money back guarantee.
  • It comes with a book to help improve your memory naturally.
  • There’s no automatic billing.

Disadvantages of CogniShield

  • It claims to cure Alzheimer’s disease, which if it were true, would change the face of the treatment of age-related cognitive decline., It wouldn’t be a fact you would stumble upon while searching the internet for a brain boosting supplement.
  • Ingredient amounts are not revealed.


Cognishield Review 3


As nootropic supplement stacks become more and more popular, CogniShield shows some promise. The ingredients are strong and solid, but it’s a real drawback not knowing how much of each is used in the formula. The other real red flag is the story of how the ingredients in CogniShield cured Adam Rand’s father of Alzheimer’s disease. Several clinical trials are being conducted as we speak aimed at doing just that. To tell this story implying that CogniShield will do this for your parent, you loved one, or yourself, is just tugging too hard on the heartstrings of people going through some of the hardest times of their lives.

But what if the story is true? Well, if it were, I’m sure there would be studies, articles, and an awful lot of buzz about this kind of success. I conducted a whole bunch of Google searches looking for any information about Adam Rand’s father and his Alzheimer’s cure, but came up with nothing. CogniShield is worth a try for improving normal cognitive function and possibly even preventing against decline, but don’t expect it to cure Alzheimer’s Disease.

  1. I think it’s really pathetic that people like Adam Rand make use of people’s fears and experiences with diseases to sell “snake oil” like this supposed brain medicine! Too bad that our constitution guarantees him the right to send out infomercials of this type.

    Believe me, if there were any real truth in these claims, it would be miraculous and the medical community would be touting it with loud blazing horns, and doctors would have been recommending it for years. It is so bad that if his claims are not true, he should be personally liable for any cases where people do not consult with real doctors about treatments available through the normal medical community due to his claims on the internet.

    Wait a minute, he is! I’d love to hear about it if there has been any real legal actions concerning this product, and/or any other of these similar “snake oil” products.

    What a miracle it would be if there really was something that could do the things claimed in his advertising! I wish it were true!

    The power of suggestion can be truly amazing, can’t it? Not really a question, more of a statement.

  2. I inadvertantly deleted the cognisheild memory playbook download I got free with my previous order…Is there anyway I can download it again please?
    1. Hey Kim,
  is a review website. We don’t have any affiliation with this product, so you’ll have to contact the company you made your purchase from to cancel your order or billing.


  3. Recently I purchased a trial bottle of CogniShield which was labled 60 capsules. I started sharing them with my wife one for her and one for me.

    At the end
    of the first week I discovered I only had 2 capsules. I would like to order another bottle
    with 60 in it to give it a fair trial.

    What do you
    suggest? Jack

    1. You’ll have to talk to Cognishield directly to see if they’ll do what you’re asking. We are a review website, we don’t sell supplements.

    1. Hey Barry,
      We don’t actually sell Cognishield, so you’ll have to contact them regarding your order. Here’s their customer service phone number: 1-844-862-6464

  4. Hello, you mention that you are positive if there was something out there curing Alzheimer’s that pharma would be on it. I am very curious have there been very many cures for any diseases provided by pharmaceuticals?

    I remember reading that some diseases are caused by vitamin deficiencies and cured with the proper amount of the vitamin, but I have not come across any pharma cures, can you direct me were this information could be obtained, thank you!
    1. Hey Kim,

      I don’t mean to imply that only pharmaceutical companies cure diseases, but if there were a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease, we would know about it. Scientists, whether working at Universities or in industry would be studying the effects of these compounds on patients with the disease, and it would be known in the community that this potential cure exists.
