Vinpocetine is derived from vincamine, the major alkaloid found in the periwinkle plant. Vinpocetine has been used orally for many years in Europe to enhance memory and mental function by:

  • increasing the neuronal firing rate
  • Improving blood supply to the brain
  • Increasing oxygen and glucose use by the brain
  • Improving brain tolerance to low oxygen levels
  • Increasing ATP levels in the brain
  • Reducing abnormal coagulation of blood
  • Raising brain levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin
  • No toxic effects have been seen from vinpocetine use at levels far above therapeutic dosages, which are usually in the range of 5-20mg per day.
