Vinpocetine is believed to support neuronal function and healthy blood flow to the brain, thereby supporting cognitive function and memory.
Studies have shown that vinpocetine’s potential for cognitive support are due to its properties as a vasodilator, increasing blood flow to the brain as well as potentially improving the brain’s use of oxygen. 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.
Vinpocetine, a derivative of vincamine, is made from extract of the periwinkle plant, Vinca minor. Its use as an herbal medicine dates back centuries. In addition to supporting cognitive function, the alkaloids in the plant extract may have blood pressure and blood sugar supporting properties.
Vinpocetine capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support the healthy functioning of their mental processes.
