Vinpocetine Benefits

Cognition

Taking a vinpocetine supplement can promote cognition.* One study found that vinpocetine enhances acute memory formation and reduces reaction time. [5] Besides enhancing memory and reducing reaction time, vinpocetine also helps support cognitive function.* A study found that when consumed at 30mg for 90 days, vinpocetine enhanced cognition, especially in the elderly. [6] Another study conducted on the elderly found that vinpocetine supplementation enhanced their ability to speak and form words. [7] It is thought that these benefits are the result of an increased accumulation of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), by way of phosphodiesterase 1 (PDE1) inhibition.

Vinpocetine Dosage

The recommended dosage is 5mg thrice daily with food.
