Periwinkle powder has been under research for its brain-boosting potential. There is a specific alkaloid it possesses called “vinpocetine.” Vinpocetine increases brain health through its antioxidant properties, which, along with the inhibition of PDE1, promotes blood flow and may protect the brain and nerve cells from damage should blood flow decline for some reason.
Periwinkle is the ideal candidate for improving and preventing specific disease processes in need of increased blood flow and oxygenation and for athletes who want to enhance their performance by improving brain oxygenation, such as skiers, mountain climbers, and high-altitude hikers.
