Vinpocetine is a semisynthetic derivative alkaloid of vincamine, and also can be semisynthesized from tabersonine, an extract from Voacanga Africana Seed.
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.

1. Increases blood flow.
2. Increases the rate at which brain cells produce ATP (which is a cell molecule that creates energy).
3. Speeds up the use of glucose in the brain. Regulates Sodium/ Potassium channels
4. Speeds up the use of oxygen in the brain.
5. Vinpocetine increases levels of neurotransmitters involved in memory
Vinpocetine as the “smart supplement” that can stimulate cerebral circulation and help the brain make better use of oxygen. With current increases in human longevity and an exponentially expanding senior population, degenerative disorders which affect the brain and its functions are attracting more and more attention as an aging generation looks toward a healthier, more active, and more productive lifestyle.
Vinpocetine is a vasodilator (improves brain blood flow) that, uniquely for this type of drug, affects only the areas that need to treat. This action has to lead to Vinpocetine being used to improve hearing (particularly tinnitus), eyesight and even alleviate problems related to the menopause; Clinical research indicates that Vinpocetine has a positive effect upon damaged areas of the brain and raises brain energy levels. But perhaps most importantly, Vinpocetine can protect against brain arteriosclerosis, which if left unchecked, can lead to strokes.
