  • Vinpocetine‚ provided by Douglas Laboratories®‚ supplies 10 mg of vinpocetine in a vegetarian
    capsule. Vinpocetine is a derivative of vincamine‚ from an extract of the periwinkle plant.

    Progressive memory loss‚ dementia‚ and related cognitive dysfunction states have become a serious medical and social problem in Western societies. According to the U.S. National Institute on Aging‚ in the United States alone there are as many as four million cases of the most extreme form of cognitive breakdown. With the increasing population of people over the age of 50‚ concern for dementia‚ cognitive malfunction and other related diseases has become understandable. Vinca minor is a perennial ground cover plant known also as myrtle or periwinkle. The plant bears bright‚ blue-violet flowers and is most often found in the temperate zone of the Northern hemisphere. Its use as an herbal medicine dates back for centuries‚ where it has been used to treat everything from wasp stings to diabetes. Its many alkaloids may have blood pressureand blood sugar-reducing properties‚ in addition to improvement in cognitive function.

    Studies have shown that vinpocetine can be a powerful cognitive enhancement product. It is a vasodilator and thus can increase blood flow to the brain‚ as well as potentially improving the brain’s use of oxygen‚ thus enabling brain cells to continue functioning‚ even when oxygen supplies are cut off. Vinpocetine has also been found to stimulate noradrenergic neurons in an area of the brain called the locus coeruleus. Noradrenergic neurons affect the function of the cerebral cortex—the part of the brain used to think‚ plan‚ and act. The number of these neurons declines with age‚ impairing concentration‚ alertness‚ and the speed with which information is processed. It may also have anticonvulsant action‚ which may be linked to its neuronal protective capacity and/or its modulation of several chemical transmitter systems. It can also increase cerebral metabolism and raise ATP levels in nerve cells. In double-blind trials conducted with patients suffering from mild-to-moderate vascular dementia‚ vinpocetine benefited memory‚ learning‚ and global clinical measures of cognitive performance. Speech and language also showed marked improvement.

    Vinpocetine capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support the healthy functioning of their mental processes.

    Vinpocetine

    I like that there arent any added ingredients in Vinpocetine. Helps with memory recall especially when trying to remember names.

    Our whole family takes Vinpocetine along with other brain-supportive supplements to keep our minds functioning well in this neuro-challenging world. It was recommended by our family physician.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
