Vinpocetine is manufactured by Source Naturals. Vinpocetine comes from the Perwinkle plant and is used with individuals with short-term memory loss associated with aging or stress. It not only improves short term memory but increases cerebral metabolism and improves awareness. This supplement is very popular in Europe where they believe it is more effective than Ginkgo Biloba. Vinpocetine contains many of the same components as Ginkgo but Vinpocetine works faster. Results have been seen in as little as 7 to 10 days.
- aid memory
- support brain function and health
