To function optimally the brain needs a steady of nutrients‚ including glucose to fuel and oxygen with which to burn it. Many people rely on Ginkgo Biloba to help ensure of these nutrients‚ because it enhances the flow of blood into the tiny capillaries feeding the cells of the brain. However‚ Ginkgo has its limits.
A phytonutrient found int periwinkle (Vinca minor) and originally developed by the Hungarian pharmceuticl giant Gedden Richte transcends these limitations. That phytonutrient‚ Vinpocetine‚ is a much more versatile metabolic enhancer.
While vinpocetine enhances cerebral microcirculation like Ginkgo Biloba does‚ vinpocetine does so by reducing vinpocetine‚ unlike Ginkgo‚ also supports brain metabolism by mechanisms not related to its effects on microcirculation. First‚ vinpocetine enhances the ability of red blood cells to "flex" their shape so as to more easily cross the blood-brain barrier: the layer of tight cell-to-cell contacts that protects the brain from potentially toxic substances. Next‚ vinpocetine directly supports the delivery of oxygen to the brain. Finally‚ Vinpocetine facilities the up-take and release of blood sugar across the blood-brain barrier‚ supporting optimal partitioning of fuel supplies. Studied in red blood cells and damaged neurons show that vinpocetine directly increases ATP levels in these cells‚ supporting optimal brain energy levels.
