Bacognize® Standardized Bacopa Extract
bacopa supports neurological health by boosting glutathione production and supporting healthy neurotransmitter generation
Bacognize® is a clinically-researched standardized extract of the Ayurvedic herb Bacopa monnieri.
Although many may be familiar with bacopa’s positive effects on mood and focus, few are aware that it also works with the body’s glutathione system.
Bacognize® has been clinically proven to enhance memory and focus. It is sustainably grown in India and standardized via HPLC to contain serotonin-active bacopa glycosides and other bioactive phytochemicals.
The subject of 6 studies, Bacognize® supports:
- Multi-antioxidant activation through promotion of NRF2
- Enhanced activity of the Glutathione S-Transferase (GST) enzyme, helping glutathione bind to toxins
- Enhanced activity of the Glutathione Peroxidase (GPx) enzyme, assisting glutathione with the neutralization of free radicals
- Optimal memory and cognitive performance by promoting healthy levels of acetylcholine
- Healthy mood by promoting serotonin signaling (via SABGs: Serotonin-Active Bacopa Glycosides)
- Optimal stress response and calm focus by promoting healthy GABA levels
- Healthy neurological inflammation response

3x absorption Ginkgo phytosome
ginkgo: a classic herb, upgraded for enhanced bioavailability
Ginkgo Biloba leaf has been revered for millennia for its ability to support healthy blood flow, cognitive function, and mood.
Many people know of its ability to support brain health, but few know that part of its essential mechanism of action is that it’s able to upregulate glutathione by supporting the activity of enzymes called Glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs).
Ginkgo also supports healthy mood and focus by promoting the activity of critical neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine.
The special Ginkgo Phytosome used in APEX Glutathione absorbs three times better than a standard ginkgo extract because it’s been blended with phospholipids from sunflower seeds.
The subject of 3 studies, Ginkgo Phytosome supports:
- Healthy glutathione activity in the brain by promoting the activity of Glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs)
- Mood health by supporting dopamine and serotonin
- Healthy inflammation response
- Cardiovascular health by promoting healthy blood flow throughout the body
- Memory and focus by supporting circulation within the brain and promoting the activity of acetylcholine
