Supports brain health & function.

Vinpocetine is a supplement derived from the alkaloid vincamine from the periwinkle plant that helps support memory & cognition & helps you maintain concentration. Although the periwinkle plant may be best-known for its pink and purple garden flowers – which is why periwinkle is the name of a color – it is also the source of vincamine, an alkaloid from which the memory- and cognition-supporting ingredient vinpocetine is derived.

Vinpocetine supplementation can support healthy brain blood flow, memory, concentration & overall cognitive function.

Vinpocetine and Tinnitus

Vinpocetine has long been used in Eastern Europe to treat various forms of hearing disorders. A 1986 review of eight independent studies of substances that enhance blood flow found that vinpocetine produced improvements in hearing as well as in “ringing” of the ears, or tinnitus, following trauma to the ear.

A decade later, an open-label study of vinpocetine at a dose of 20 mg a day for 10 days following trauma to the ear showed that vinpocetine supported significant improvement in hearing and a decrease in tinnitus, with the best results seen in patients who took the supplement within one week of the injury.

Vinpocetine may also have a role in preventing non-traumatic hearing loss. According to a 2003 study, pre-treatment with vinpocetine prevented hearing loss associated with the antibiotic gentamicin in 118 patients under treatment for tuberculosis.
In a 2008 study of 150 tinnitus patients suffering from chronic unilateral or bilateral tinnitus who were previously ineffectively treated by oral or intravenous nutrients or drugs, the use of vinpocetine, in conjuction with physio­therapy, came out on top.

In 2013, a Russian paper found that:
“With the use of vinpocetine, 80% of the study group showed a significant improvement of hearing and reduced severity of tympanophonia [abnormal hearing of ones own voice and respiratory sounds, usually as a result of an exposed eustachian tube] compared with the control subjects treated by the traditional method.”

These effects make biological sense, as vinpocetine’s effect on tiny intracellular structures called microtubules helps brain cells restore function after injury, and microtubules are important in the hearing cells of the inner ear as well.
