Vinpocetine is a compound found in the Periwinkle plant and is used as a neuroprotective and anti-aging supplement. A common nootropic, Vinpocetine enhances cerebral blood flow and is believed to increase memory.
Vinpocetine also appears to be neuroprotective and to slow the rate of cognitive decline, although it is still understudied in this area compared to other more common nootropics.
The standard dosage range recommended for Vinpocetine daily is between 15-60 mg, divided into three daily doses and taken with meals.
The low end dosing protocol recommended is to take 5 mg three times a day with meals, while the high end dosing protocol is to take 20 mg three times a day with meals. We do not recommend exceeding a 60 mg per day dose.
Most studies on Vinpocetine and memory have been performed in the 30-40 mg daily dose range, and this is what we recommend for optimal benefits.
When taken orally, Vinpocetine is safe and well tolerated and studies have found no significant harmful effects after a year of daily use at 60 mg. Adverse side effects, while rare, have been observed in some cases and include stomach aches, nausea, sleep disturbances, headache, dizziness, and flushing of the face.
Vinpocetine should not be used with prescription medications that slow blood cotting such as clopidogrel or Coumadin. OTC drugs such as aspirin should also be avoided when using Vinpocetine.
