Vinpocetine enhances brain metabolism. Obtained from tabersonine, which is an alkaloid extracted from Voacanga seeds, vinpocetine works by increasing the synthesis of ATP in the brain and the utilization of oxygen. Vinpocetine also enhances the synthesis of some neurotransmitters that influence critical brain functions such as mood, focus, and memory recall.
Vinpocetine may also have antioxidant effects similar to those of vitamin E and be beneficial to brain function and age-related cognitive decline. Vinpocetine may have a number of other beneficial health effects, including increasing cerebral blood flow, anticonvulsant activities, and neuroprotection. Often referred to as a nootropic or cognition enhancer, vinpocetine is used in many parts of the world to treat cerebrovascular and cognitive problems.
