Cogni Lift is a brain supplement that promises will unlock your potential, activating your power and revitalizing your mind, giving you a better memory and allowing you to focus like never before. Cogni Lift adds that if you take their supplement you will be able to “drive” your dreams, allowing for total relaxation, which they say is key to piece of mind and an enriching life experience.
What is in Cogni Lift that makes it so powerful for my brain?
Cogni Lift claims to have 9 natural compounds that have been comprehensively studied to elevate your neurotransmitters, reduce stress, and protect your brain; however they don’t list any ingredient except to say they work to increase acetylcholine, a chemical that acts as a neurotransmitter in our brain.
Cogni Lift claims that studies have shown people who take acetylcholine enhancers have more vivid and lucid dreams. In addition, they state acetylcholine works to increase our REM cycles as we sleep. Together, they claim, this will allow you to control your dreams and live a more rewarding life.
How much does it cost to try Cogni Lift?
Cogni Lift claims to offer a sample bottle for just $4.97 shipping – BUT a peek at the lengthy terms and conditions reveals a different story.
- After 10 days from date of order, you will be billed $139.97 for that “sample” bottle.
- You will also automatically be enrolled in the “Customer Preferred Program” (aka a sneaky auto ship) and every 30 days you will be sent another bottle of Cogni Lift and billed $139.97 plus $9.97 shipping and handling.
- Refunds are not available for sample bottles.
- Refunds are only available for unopened bottles.
- A 35% restocking fee is charged.
- You must first get approval from Cogni Lift Customer Service: 855-511-1614
Cogni Lift also has a “negative option clause”, which states you may be liable for a payment of $139.97 plus $9.97 shipping if you fail to notify them to stop supplying you with bottles.
Bottom Line: Should I try Cogni Lift to enhance my mind and dreams?
No. Why do we make such a bold statement?
Well, first of all, they don’t list the ingredients, so you essentially have no idea what you are getting. Because supplements are not regulated like pharmaceutical drugs, these products can be sold as long as they state somewhere that it has not been evaluated by the FDA.
Second, the trial period is very small, expiring just 10 days after you ordered it, not when it comes in the mail. Since shipping times are notoriously slow for these types of supplements, you will very likely have your trial period expire before you even know it. (And since they state it may take up to 3 months before you see any results, you’re likely not to feel any different.)
That means you will be liable for at least $139.97.
How to buy supplements
Recently, the supplement industry has come under fire for not policing themselves. An investigation by the New York Attorney General took DNA samples of some of the biggest names in supplements including GNC, Target, and Walgreens, and found that many of them did not contain the ingredients listed on the label.
While GNC has agreed to do more testing, and the industry is starting to adapt better standards, we recommend only buying supplements from a company that uses an independent outside lab. One of the oldest and most respected is US Pharmacopeia (USP), and you can find a list of companies that use USP here.
We don’t recommend buying any supplements that offer “free trials” no matter how fancy the website graphics are.

Can I control my dreams?
Lucid dreaming, or the idea of being fully awake while dreaming is an intriguing concept that is actually quite possible with a bit of practice. Sleep studies have shown that we really can influence and control our dreams more than we realize.
If you’d like to begin having more lucid dreams, you can start out by just keeping a journal and writing down your dreams every morning. Another trick is to keep asking yourself “am I dreaming” during the day – the theory is you can train yourself to ask yourself that in the middle of a dream.
Once you realize you are in a dream, have fun! Fly around (you know you want to) or perform crazy feats of strength. Studies also show that lucid dreaming helps with our memory and problem solving.
If you’d like to learn more, check out the Lucid Dreaming subreddit where people swap stories and advice. If you are looking to increase acetylcholine, you can have a little milk, some vitamin B-6 or perhaps some Stilton blue cheese before bed time. According to Livestrong, a dream study conducted at Sonoma State University found Stilton cheese to be associated with the most bizarre dreams.
