This drug is a revolutionary treatment (and preventative) for stroke, senile dementia and memory disturbances.
Vinpocetine is a vasodilator (it improves brain blood flow with a no-steal effect) and has been found to improve hearing (tinnitus), eyesight and even alleviate the problems of menopause.
Clinical research indicates that vinpocetine has a positive effect upon damaged areas of the brain, and raises brain energy levels.
Vinpocetine is also known to be an antioxidant and may protect the brain from aging. There are no known side effects, toxicity or contraindications at doses of one tablet (5mg each) three times daily (or two tablets three times daily for treatments).
This product is pharmaceutical quality derived from the patent holder Covex. (It is not true that all vinpocetine is from Covex - they informed us that they believe they are only supplying 80% of the US market).
At high dosages, seek your physicians advice if combining with potent vasodilators such as Ginko Biloba, Hydergine, Nicergoline, Picamilone, or Xanthinol (Nicotinate).
VINPOCETINE / INTELECTOL
Chemical: Vinpocetine 5mg (Molecular formula C22H26N2O2), excipient, lactose, S.C.
Description: Vinpocetine is a new cerebral metabolic activator which can improve cerebral circulation and enhance oxygen and glucose utilisation in the brain. Vinpocetine diminishes or reduces disturbances due to hypoxia or to deficient cerebral metabolism. Vinpocetine produces improvement in mental and neurological symptoms which are sequelae to cerebral haemorrhage, cerebral infarction (particularly multi- infarct) and cerebrosclerosis. Cerebral circulation is particularly enhanced in response to low oxygen levels in the brain and thus increased blood flow to the brain is not accompanied by reduced peripheral blood flow and side effects associated with that as hypertension. Vinpocetine improves oxygen and glucose utilisation by brain cells and increases their resistance to damage by hypoxia.
Characteristics: Vinpocetine improves oxygen utilisation by brain tissue and increases it’s resistance to damage during hypoxia.
Vinpocetine selectively increases cerebral circulation and decreases cerebral vascular resistance.
With minimal systemic effects, Vinpocetine does not alter pulse rate, blood pressure or respiration rate.
With possible anti-platelet effect, Vinpocetine can reduce the possibilities of thrombus formation in the constricted vessels.
Vinpocetine is well tolerated clinically.
Indication: Improvement of symptoms caused by following diseases; Sequelae of cerebral haemorrhage, sequelae of cerebral infarction, cerebrosclerosis.
Dosage: One tablet (5mg each) 3 times a day.
Precautions, Side Effects and Contraindications: Vinpocetine is contradicted in those patients thought to be incomplete homeostasis after cerebral haemorrhage. Vinpocetine is contradicted in women who are or may become pregnant. 2. Side effects. Hypersensitivities; Eruption; Nausea. If hypersensitive signs occur the drug should be discontinued immediately. Gastrointestinal system; Anorexia, abdominal pain, diarrhoea may be occurred rarely. Circulatory system; Erythroposopalgia, excitation may be occurred rarely. Blood; Leukocytopenia may be occurred rarely. Liver; Parameters SGOT or SGPT may be risen rarely. Kidney; Parameter of BUN may be risen rarely. 3. Precaution. In animal studies reproductive toxicity such as foetus death, abortion was reported, therefore the drug should be forbidden in women who are or may become pregnant. In animal studies Vinpocetine can be crossed to breast milk, therefore drug should not be forbidden in women who are lactating.
Storage and shelf life: Tight container protected from light. Store at room temperature 3 years.
