Nowadays the pharmaceutical market for improving the brain activity is flooded with supplements and drugs. A large part of these substances are completely natural and derive from the most common herbs or flowers.
Few people could imagine that a little flower of Europe contains an almost unknown dietary supplement with great potential, which is called vinpocetine. Vinpocetine is a kind of alkaloid, synthesized by the vincamine molecule. It can be naturally found in the flower Vinca minor, also known as periwinkle in Europe.
Vincamine is the plant’s main constituent and its concentration reaches 25-65% of the total alkaloids. Periwinkle has been used in traditional European medicine for treating headaches.
Vinpocetine has been used in European medicine for the treatment of brain diseases and for improving memory for decades. That is why vinpocetine is categorized as a nootropic. Successfully improves blood flow to the brain, which is due partly to the moderate vasodilatory effect.
