Our
story

Like science, Lipogen is synergy – the synergy between one of the world's leading brain researchers and talented professionals driven by a consuming curiosity of what makes our brains function. Professor Meir Shinitzky and our passionate team founded Lipogen in 1991, bringing to life his visionary insights on optimizing cognitive health.

There's plenty to learn from our success

What you'll find when you meet Lipogen is a team that believes in what it does. Perhaps taking Lipogen's products over the years for cognitive function and stress reduction has helped us stay on top of our game.

A well-kept secret among manufacturers for over 25 years, Lipogen's gold-standard products are now available directly to consumers.

One thing's for sure: the key to Lipogen's success is not magic; our company's winning team has invested non-stop in everything we do so that customers can get the maximum from our products.

OUR FORMULAS

Brain performance is highly dependent on membrane integrity. Lipogen products help structure and protect cells so they can function and communicate with each other.

Lipogen has been innovating and manufacturing phospholipids since 1991. The company was the first to introduce phosphatidylserine (PS) globally and clinically test soy-lecithin-based PS. Lipogen raw ingredients, used as ingredients in a variety of products, have been shown safe and effective in extensive clinical research. Lipogen delivers high quality products at competitive prices. Patented Lipogen formulas have applications in cognitive function, stress management, enhancing well-being, women's health and improving quality of life.

Phosphatidic acid

This lipid has important roles in cell signaling, membrane curvature, and metabolic regulation in all organisms. Recent studies identified that daily supplementation with PA may stimulate increases in muscle size, promote lean body mass and strengthen brain function.

Phosphatidylserine

A vital phospholipid notable for its role in memory and cognitive health. PS is mainly concentrated in the brain and nerve tissue, and is essential to nerve-cell function. PS is the only dietary ingredient with two FDA qualified health claims related to reducing risk of cognitive dysfunction and dementia in the elderly. Clinical studies have demonstrated that daily supplementation with PS can support healthy brain function.

+ Phosphatidylserine
is the only dietary supplement that has FDA qualified health claims related to cognitive function and dementia.

Phosphatidylcholines

Phosphatidylcholines are a class of phospholipids that are a major component of cell membranes. Phosphatidylcholines are believed to help brain-related functions, such as memory and anxiety mitigation.

Our history

1991

Lipogen established as partnership between company founders and two pioneering scientists – Professor Meir Shinitzky and Dr. Avner Sheinfeld – from the renowned Weizmann Institute. Lipogen introduces the world's first vegan-source formula for specific molecules vital to brain health.

1992

Lipogen builds upon the Weizmann Institute's research success, progressing to formal formula development and clinical research.

Lipogen demonstrates the positive effects of the Lipogen PS Plus formula on memory performance in healthy individuals. The results show that people who use the formula significantly improve their memory and mood.

1995

The company conducts a clinical study that shows significant positive impact of the Lipogen PS Plus formula on Alzheimer's disease patients' daily functioning, emotional state and general condition, with no side effects.

2003

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) grants phosphatidylserine (PS), the primary Lipogen ingredient, Qualified Health Claim approval, allowing Lipogen to specify on its label that consumption of PS "may reduce the risk of dementia or cognitive dysfunction in the elderly."

In 2019, PS is still the only nutritional supplement that has this claim approval (in the proper dose), while other supplement-claim requests have been rejected by the FDA.

2004

Lipogen conducts an independent clinical study examining the effects of the Lipogen PSPA formula on the stress hormone cortisol. When the level of cortisol in the body remains abnormally high, people are at higher risk of health problems.

Results from the scientific study show that subjects who take Lipogen PSPA function better and have lower levels of cortisol during and after stressful events.

2006

Lipogen formulas are designated Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. To obtain this approval, companies must prepare a comprehensive product safety portfolio, including a detailed analysis and characterization of the formula's ingredients and the production process. The FDA reviews scientific information, clinical trial results and toxicology reports demonstrating product safety.

2010

Lipogen signs a collaboration agreement with the large Swiss pharmaceutical company, Lonza.

2014

Lipogen publishes results of the clinical trial that assesses the effects of the Lipogen PSPA formula on people's cortisol stress hormone levels. There is large and growing evidence worldwide about the correlation between high cortisol levels and Alzheimer's disease.

Lipogen proves again that subjects taking the formula suffer from less emotional stress, function better in stressful situations and have lower cortisol hormone levels than subjects who do not take the formula.

2016

Following successful formula safety and efficacy studies, Lipogen receives the European Union's most prestigious safety certificate, NOVEL FOOD.

This extensive approval process includes submitting a detailed application, including in-depth ingredient data and characteristics, information of the production process, an analysis of various risk factors, stability data, use and level of exposure, history of exposure to the complex and a comprehensive toxicology report.

2018

The company publishes a clinical study that examines the positive effects of the Lipogen PMS-FREE formula on women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

The results show that women who take the formula demonstrate significant improvement in emotional, physical and performance symptoms over 3 menstrual cycles, including lower depression and less interference in relationships and productivity.
