Vinpocetine is a periwinkle plant extract (Vinca major) that improves brain function. It has been used medicinally in Europe since 1983.

Vinpocetine dilates the arteries of the brain, decreases platelate aggregation, and increases erythrocyte flexibility, all of which are beneficial in cerebrovascular disease.  By increasing the brain's
utilization of oxygen and oxygen, vinpocetine increases cerebral metabolic rate.

Vinpocetine can help prevent stroke and can prevent much of the damage that occurs following stroke if administered immediately following stroke.

vinpocetine article

  • improves the brain's utilization of oxygen

  • improves the brain's utilization of glucose

  • accelerates the rate of learning in animal studies by up to 40%.

  • increases the length of time that short-term memory is retained.  

  • improves circulation to the eyes thereby improving vision and eyesight disorders.

  • improves impaired hearing and improves inner-ear problems.

  • improves tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and vertigo (dizziness).
