The Safe, Natural Way to Get that Extra Mental Edge
If you’re like me and you feel the need for that extra mental edge from time to time, or if you’re reaching that age where you notice your cognitive abilities are slipping a bit and you want to provide your body with the nutrition it needs to get you back on top of your mental game, then you just might want to try safe, natural Vinpocetine.
Its long-term safety has been demonstrated in medical studies to be second to none. And with over 200 medical studies backing it up, you can rest assured of its effectiveness.
Here’s what you need to know…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for Targeted Nutrients…
Sooner or later we all experience a situation where our memory isn’t so razor-sharp.
“Where did I put my keys?”
“Did I turn off the iron?”
“Oh dear, what is her name?”
“What time is that appointment?”
These common expressions are signs of forgetfulness that can affect just about anybody at any age. In fact, nearly 76 percent of Americans experience memory lapses and decreased alertness.
Some people think this is simply a natural part of aging. But it may surprise you to learn that so-called “senior moments” can affect folks as young as 30 years old!
Medical experts agree that it is natural to experience some memory loss as you age. But natural deterioration doesn’t mean you’re powerless to prevent brain drain from stealing your precious memories.
The fact is your brain needs nourishment to function properly – just like the rest of your body. And you’re about to learn about a superstar nutrient that can help rev up your brain cells!
This safe, natural substance has been a prescription memory drug in Europe for over 20 years, but much to the chagrin of the FDA, it can now be sold in the U.S. as a dietary supplement.
But what if I told you there are also over 200 clinical studies backing up its astonishing memory-boosting and cognitive-enhancing qualities? And that it works in as little as one hour!
Well, it’s all true.
the Superstar of Brain Nutrients
This nutrient is called Vinpocetine (pronounced vin-PO-seh-teen) and scientific research proves this remarkable memory enhancer can help slow mental decline…improve memory and recall…increase oxygen and blood flow throughout your body…and power up your brain – regardless of your age!
Vinpocetine is so powerful that Ward Dean, M.D., world-renowned expert in anti-aging and author of Smart Drugs and Nutrients, said the nutrient is “one of the few cognitive enhancers that I actually notice a positive difference when I take it.”
In his book, Dr. Dean discusses how Vinpocetine facilitates cerebral metabolism by improving cerebral microcirculation (i.e., blood flow to, and throughout, the brain). He further notes:
“In brain cells it steps up the production of ATP, the cellular energy molecule, and increases utilization of glucose and oxygen, the brain’s two most critical fuels.”
And according to Dr. Steven Bratman, M.D., director of The Natural Pharmacist in Fort Collins, CO, and author of the Natural Health Encyclopedia and The Natural Health Bible:
“Vinpocetine aids memory and mental function, not only with mild memory loss and age-related cognitive impairment, but also with Alzheimer’s and related conditions. Most people begin to notice clearer, sharper thinking and recall within a few short days to a few short weeks time.”
In her book, Vinpocetine: Boost Your Brain Power With Periwinkle Extract, author Dr. Beth M. Ley writes:
“Research shows that Vinpocetine provides an astonishing array of benefits. It has a very powerful stimulating effect on memory.
In Europe it is often used for the treatment of cerebral circulatory disorders that can cause such symptoms as memory loss, stroke, dizziness and even cerebro-vestibular (inner-ear) problems.
Vinpocetine has even been demonstrated to improve visual acuity – that is to say, eyesight – in 70% of subjects tested.”
Science writer James South, M.A. notes that recent medical research demonstrates Vinpocetine’s almost miraculous ability to boost the quality of thinking and planning carried out by the cerebral cortex. He writes,
“Another key benefit from Vinpocetine derives from its activating effect on the noradrenaline nerve cluster in the reticular activating system called the locus coeruleus. Researchers have shown that Vinpocetine is one of the most effective activators of locus coeruleus neurons, thus making it a true ‘cognition enhancing’ agent.”
And finally, Bernd Wollschlaeger, M.D., a Florida-based board-certified family physician who is also the associate editor of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association (JANA), says Vinpocetine is one of the mainstays of his practice when it comes to patients complaining of memory loss and mild cognitive impairment.
Dr. Wollschlaeger notes:
“All of the peer-reviewed studies I’ve seen found a significant improvement in cognitive function with Vinpocetine.
Until Vinpocetine, we physicians have had nothing to prevent cognitive decline. We only have drugs to treat after the fact. With safe, natural Vinpocetine, patients see comparatively rapid improvement in memory functions as well as enhancement of learning and recall and overall alertness.
Results are often seen in only seven to ten days. We don’t have to wait four or six or eight weeks, like with Gingko Biloba, to see results.
What’s more, there have been more than 100 clinical studies conducted on Vinpocetine, with over 30,000 patients, proving its safety and effectiveness.”
But Vinpocetine is not limited to use by older persons. Anecdotal evidence confirms college kids use it to improve alertness when studying for exams. Business professionals take the nutrient to maintain peak mental performance and cognitive vitality during working hours. And even doctors have used it to stay sharp when performing surgery and other complex tasks!
You see, these folks know that Vinpocetine helps boost mental clarity, improve thought processes, and helps increase the ability to focus and concentrate. And thankfully, medical science corroborates Vinpocetine’s profound brain-boosting qualities, as you’re about to see:
100 Clinical Studies Later,
Medical Science Now Agrees
The medical establishment often says you’re powerless to prevent age-related brain decline. But new scientific evidence shows they’re wrong, Wrong, WRONG!
More than 100 clinical studies confirm that the nutrient Vinpocetine is effective at boosting brain power and slowing memory loss!
According to Ray Sahelian, M.D., author of the book Mind Boosters: A Guide to Natural Supplements that Enhance Your Mind, Memory, and Mood, European doctors began using Vinpocetine over 30 years ago to treat a wide range of brain problems including:
- Inner ear problems
- Memory impairment
- Motor disorders
In his book, Dr. Sahelian writes that Vinpocetine effectively dilates blood vessels, which improves oxygen and blood flow to the brain. He also states that Vinpocetine helps make red blood cells more flexible and prevents them from clotting. This is an important factor in preventing possible strokes!
He notes that:
“In another double blind clinical trial, Vinpocetine was shown to offer significant improvement in elderly patients with chronic cerebral dysfunction.
Forty-two patients received 10 mg. of Vinpocetine three times a day for thirty days, then 5 mg. three times a day for sixty days.
Matching placebo tablets were given to another forty patients for the ninety-day trial period. Patients on Vinpocetine scored consistently better in all cognitive evaluations.”
Other studies have demonstrated Vinpocetine’s astonishing beneficial effects for stroke victims. For example, one study demonstrated a 42% reduction in brain injury for stroke patients who were given Vinpocetine [Acta Pharm Hung. 2002;72(2):84-91].
And another study demonstrated that Vinpocetine interrupts the various stages of the ischemic cascade during strokes, meaning it helps prevent the ongoing damage to the brain that results from the stroke itself [Ideggyogy Sz. 2003 May 20;56(5-6):166-72].
How Vinpocetine Works to Boost Your Memory and Mental Clarity
George Foss, a long-time consultant to the nutritional supplement industry, and former general manager of Kayser Nutrition, explains how Vinpocetine works, and why it has become the world’s #1 best-selling all-natural brain-boosting supplement:
“Vinpocetine’s astonishing beneficial effects on memory, recall and mental acuity occur principally because of its ability to bring age-related declines in the cellular energy functions of the brain back to more youthful levels.
It does so by literally nourishing the brain. First, it increases blood flow to the brain through mild dilation of the blood vessels, which in turn dramatically boosts glucose and oxygen uptake by the brain’s 100 billion neurons.
The neurons thrive on this increased glucose and oxygen, which in turn is used to produce prodigious quantities of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which is pure cellular energy.
This increased production of ATP within the brain quite rapidly boosts the metabolism, or energy activity of the entire brain back to the levels of a young adult.
Finally, this increased energy activity triggers two crucial functions in the brain: increased cell-to-cell communication for quicker thinking, and repair and/or replacement of damaged brain cells for optimal brain function.”
Experts say Vinpocetine boosts the circulation of oxygen-rich and glucose-rich blood to the brain so effectively it almost immediately results in a vastly increased ability to concentrate and focus.
And the results of even more clinical studies prove it’s true! Consider just a few examples:
Foggy Thinking Clears!
In one recent clinical study, 62% of healthy subjects exhibited significant short-term memory improvement only one hour after taking 40 mg. of Vinpocetine [Eur J Clin Pharmacol1985;28(5):567-71].
What’s more, researchers at the University of Surrey in Guildford, England gave Vinpocetine to 203 patients suffering from mild to moderate dementia (Hindmarch 1991). In this 16-week, double-blind trial, the patients received either:
- 10 mg daily doses of Vinpocetine three times a day,
- 20 mg doses of Vinpocetine three times a day, or
- A placebo three times a day.
Scientists found that patients receiving the Vinpocetine showed statistically significant cognitive improvements compared to patients receiving the placebo!
Muffled Hearing Improves
Vinpocetine also aids in the delivery of oxygen saturated blood to the inner ear, improving hearing as well as alleviating many inner-ear problems including tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and vertigo (dizziness) [AF DR 28, 1977-80].
In fact, in another study Vinpocetine was given to 20 patients, ages 18 to 42, who suffered hearing loss and tinnitus after experiencing acoustic trauma (Konopka et al 1997).
Within one week of the trauma, tinnitus disappeared in 50% of patients who took the nutrient. And 79% of patients had improved hearing regardless of the timing of the acoustic incident!
Dim Vision Sharpens
Research has also demonstrated that Vinpocetine also boosts circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the eyes, thereby improving vision and eyesight disorders. In fact, in one study, Vinpocetine improved vision in 88% of test subjects [Arzneimittelforschung 1976;26(10a):1969-72].
In another study, one hundred patients suffering with hardened arteries received 20 mg of Vinpocetine daily to increase circulation in the eye vessels (Kahan, Olah 1976).
Researchers found that visual acuities improved by an average of 73% in 88 cases! And the improvement was even more significant – a whopping 267% – in cases of hardening or blockage in the central retinal artery!
A Superior Brain-Booster
Vinpocetine is truly a superior brain booster. In fact, in one study 62% of healthy subjects showed significant short-term memory improvement just 1 hour after taking 40 mg of Vinpocetine (Subhan, Hindmarch 1985)!
And the benefits of this amazing nutrient don’t end there. Medical studies also show Vinpocetine has been effectively used to:
- Accelerate the rate of learning by 40% (according to animal research)
- Increase levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) energy in the brain’s neurons
- Improve the brain’s use of glucose as fuel
- Increase the short-term memory retention
- Improve symptoms of incontinence
- And much, much more!
Studies also show that Vinpocetine has an impressive safety record, supporting and enhancing brain function with no nasty side effects!
What the Experts are saying about Vinpocetine…
87% Improvement in Cognitive Function
“Researchers have been eager to determine whether vinpocetine has any value in memory enhancement. The answer is a definitive yes. In an Italian study of 22 elderly patients suffering from central nervous system degenerative disorders, 87 percent experienced improvement in cognitive function after taking 10 mg of vinpocetine daily for 30 days, followed by 5 mg three times daily for 60 days. No significant side effects were noted.
…While many studies focus on the effects of vinpocetine for patients suffering from various degenerative conditions, researchers have also inquired into the effects of this agent in healthy individuals. In a German study, 40 healthy volunteers were given 40 mg of vinpocetine daily for two days. This brief course resulted in a significant improvement in memory as assessed by the Sternberg Memory Scanning Test. This study suggests that in normal, healthy people, vinpocetine can enhance memory quickly.
Vinpocetine may not be a cure-all, but it clearly demonstrates value in enhancing brain function and cognitive ability in many cases. As we strive to slow the aging process and fight back the deterioration of the brain and mind, vinpocetine stands to be one of the valuable agents we use for wellness as we grow older.”
– Chris Kilham, ethnobotanist, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Lowers Blood Viscosity!
“Vinpocetine lowers blood viscosity in patients with cerebrovascular disease, has significant vasodilating properties, decreases platelet aggregation, and increases and maintains erythrocyte flexibility under oxidative stress, all of which are potentially beneficial in cerebrovascular disease. Vinpocetine causes a selective increase in cerebral blood flow and increases cerebral metabolic rate.”
– Alternative Medicine Review, Volume 7, Number 3
Potent Anti-Inflammatory Action!
“Chronic inflammatory processes are related to conditions as distinct as atherosclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, asthma, systemic lupus, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. The continuous use of anti-inflammatory agents is required to treat these conditions. However, the long-term use of these drugs creates an additional challenge: the high frequency of severe side effects. Currently, there are great efforts to discover anti-inflammatory drugs that can be used for long periods with minimal side effects. In PNAS, Jeon et al. show that Vinpocetine, a phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitor known for its minimal side effects and great potential in cognitive enhancement, also has potent anti-inflammatory action.”
– Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vinpocetine as a potent anti-inflammatory agent, PNAS June 1, 2010 vol. 107 no. 22 9921-9922
Phenomenal Brain Benefits!
“Vinpocetine taken orally is easily absorbed, and it can improve blood supply to the brain…increase oxygen and glucose use by the brain…improve brain tolerance to hypoxic injury…increase vasodilation response to hypoxia…maintain optimal energy of healthy brains…maintain normal coagulation of blood…maintain healthy levels of some neurotransmitters, and promote healthy attention, memory and concentration.”
– Life Extension Foundation
Stimulates ATP Production!
“Vinpocetine increases blood circulation in the brain by inhibiting an enzyme called phosphodiesterase. It also stimulates adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, the substance that provides energy in neural cells. This is significant since ATP availability tends to decrease with age and that decrease is a major cause of neural cell death. Vinpocetine is also valued for its nootropic effects, which means that it is considered to be a memory enhancer. Vinpocetine also improves oxygen and glucose utilization in the brain.
In addition to increasing blood flow and neurotransmission in the brain, vinpocetine also exhibits antioxidant and neuroprotective activity. Studies have shown that the presence of vinpocetine in the brain deters the formation of free radicals and lipid peroxidation.”
Improves Visual and Auditory Perception!
“Vinpocetine is a good cognitive enhancer. It improves visual and auditory perception similar to pregnenolone. My patients appreciate the effects better after a few days of therapy.”
– Dr. Ascanio Polimeni, M.D., Ph.D., Medical Director of Anti-Aging Center of Rome and Milan, Chairman of Scientific Advisory Board of Italian Association of Anti-Aging Medical Doctors
Works for Young and Old Alike!
“Vinpocetine, the extract of the periwinkle plant, has hundreds of clinical trials demonstrating its effectiveness for both the elderly and younger individuals. These studies show this important botanical has the following effects: Increase cerebral blood flow…improve cerebral metabolism…increase use of glucose and oxygen in the brain…increase serotonin levels which is important for sleep, appetite and mood regulation…benefit tinnitus and other causes of impaired hearing…benefit conditions related to insufficient blood flow to the brain, including vertigo, sleep difficulties, mood changes and depression.”
– Beth M. Ley, author, Vinpocetine: Revitalize Your Brain With Periwinkle Extract
Raises Brain Energy Levels!
“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.”
– International Anti-Aging Systems
Boosts Brain Metabolism!
“The effects of vinpocetine on cerebral blood flow, brain metabolism, memory functions, and its neuroprotective action have been confirmed in the past years in numerous animal experiments and human studies… Numerous clinical studies indicated that vinpocetine is safe during long-term administration. No serious side effects related to the treatment have been found.”
– R. Maslarova, Chemical Pharmaceutical Research Institute, Sofia, Bulgaria
Inhibits Platelet Aggregation!
“Experiments with vinpocetine indicate that it can dilate blood vessels, enhance circulation in the brain, improve oxygen utilization, make red blood cells more pliable, and inhibit aggregation of platelets.”
– Ray Sahelian, M.D., Mind Boosters: A Guide to Natural Supplements that Enhance Your Mind, Memory, and Mood
Works Four Ways to Enhance Cognitive Function
“Studies with vinpocetine show that it works in the brain in the following four ways: enhancing blood circulation in the brain, increasing the production of stored energy in brain cells, improving the brain’s utilization of oxygen, and improving the brain’s metabolism of glucose. While the causes of common brain disorders are diverse and complex, any agent that can enhance cerebral efficiency overall enhance cognitive function. In the case of vinpocetine, this definitely seems to be the case.”
– FoxNews.com, January 19, 2012
Can Also Help Tame Inflammation Without Side Effects!
“In a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center were the first to find that Vinpocetine, a natural product derived from the periwinkle plant, acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent… Results of the study show that vinpocetine greatly reduces inflammation, and, unlike steroids, does not cause severe side effects.
‘What is extremely exciting and promising about these findings is vinpocetine’s excellent safety profile,’ said Chen Yan, Ph.D., associate professor within the Aab Cardiovascular Research Institute at the Medical Center and a senior author of the study. ‘Previously, most drugs tested in this area have failed, not because of a lack of efficacy, but because of safety issues. We’re very encouraged by these results and believe Vinpocetine has great potential for the treatment of COPD and other inflammatory diseases.’
Vinpocetine is a well-known natural product that was originally discovered nearly 30 years ago and is currently used as a dietary supplement for the prevention and treatment of cognitive disorders, such as stroke and memory loss, in Europe, Japan and China. The therapy has no evidence of toxicity or noticeable side effects in human patients. Scientists at the University of Rochester hope to reposition this compound as an anti-inflammatory agent for the treatment of COPD, and potentially other inflammatory conditions, such as asthma, otitis media, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis and psoriasis in the future.”
