Vinpocetine is a derivative of Vincamine, naturally occurring in Crioceras longiflorus. Clinical studies suggest that it facilitates cerebral metabolism by improving cerebral blood flow, increasing glucose and oxygen utilization by neurons and concentration of neurotransmitters involved in the process of memory formation. Clinical studies have also shown that Vinpocetine may help to maintain healthy microcirculation in the inner vital organs of ears and eyes. Research has shown that the effects of this compound go beyond mere prevention and turn it into a Powerful Memory Enhancer.
Vincamine is a purified extract of Vinca Minor L. (Periwinkle plant). Used as a cerebral vasodilator for enhancing mental alertness, it increases blood flow to the brain and improves its oxygenation.
