Memory is a complete formula for mental energy
and memory, to meet the demands of
today’s stressful world. It provides potent
antioxidants and the building materials for neurotransmitter production.
Memory contains memory enhancer- Vinpocetine.
Vinpocetine is a powerful memory enhancer. It
facilitates cerebral metabolism by improving cerebral microcirculation (blood flow), stepping up brain cell ATP production (ATP is the cellular energy molecule),
& increasing utilization of glucose and oxygen.
What all this means is that vinpocetine shares many of the effects of
several other cognitive enhancers. Vinpocetine is often used for the treatment of cerebral circulatory disorders such as memory problems, acute stroke, aphasia (loss of the power of expression), apraxia (inability to coordinate movements), motor disorders,
dizziness and other cerebrovascular (inner-ear) problems, and
headache. Vinpocetine is also used to treat acute or
some chronic ophthalmologic diseases, with visual acuity
improving in 70% of the subjects.
Vinpocetine also is used in the treatment of sensor neural hearing impairment.
The Gedeon Richter company of Hungary markets vinpocetine as
Cavinton in Europe. They have funded more than one hundred studies on
vinpocetine, often comparing its effect to other smart drugs. The incidence of side effects in humans using the drug orally is usually less than 1% of a study's participants, with the unwanted effects usually disappearing with continued use. One series of studies that Gedeon Richter conducted involved 882 patients with neurological disorders ranging from stroke to cerebral insufficiency. Significant improvements were found in 62% of the patients. In one of the
studies, cerebral insufficiency patients were asked to memorize a list of 10 words. Without vinpocetine the subjects were able to memorize an average of 6 words. After a month of treatment the average went up to 10 words. Gedeon Richter promotes vinpocetine as the only drug that
improves cerebral metabolism (glucose and oxygen
uptake), tolerance of hypoxia (deficient blood oxygenation), ATP concentration, norepinephrine and serotin turnover, and cerebral
microcirculation. Gedeon Richter also claims that vinpocetine selectively increases blood flow to the brain, improving blood flow to the impaired area without lowering blood flow to other parts of the
body. As if the medical uses of vinpocetine were not amazing enough, in
one double-blind crossover study normal, healthy volunteers showed incredible short-term memory improvement an hour after taking 40mg of
vinpocetine. The volunteers took a computer-administered
short-term memory test called a Sternberg Memory Scanning Test. The volunteers (all women between the ages of 25 and 40) were shown one to three digits on a computer screen, then a moment later were shown a long string of digits. The
volunteers then indicated whether any of the first strings appeared in the second long string. The time the volunteers took to remember was then assessed. On a placebo the women took an average of 700 milliseconds to response when the first set
contained 3 digits. With vinpocetine they averaged under 450 milliseconds!
Vinpocetine is a derivate of vincamine, which is an extract of the periwinkle. Although they have many similar effect vinpocetine has more benefits and fewer adverse effects than
Precautions: Adverse effect are rare, but include hypotension, dry
mouth, weakness, and tachycardia. Vinpocetine has no drug
interactions, no toxicity, and is generally very safe.
