Periwinkle is building its reputation in the United States due to its popularity in Europe and Japan. Since the late 1960s, Periwinkle 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. Vinca major helps because it is a sodium channel blocker, meaning it can stop the accumulation of sodium in injured nerve cells and also help to restore cognitive functioning.

Periwinkle Claim:

The potential for Periwinkle and or its alkaloid vinpocetine to treat cognitive impairment and brain trauma was demonstrated in a study of retired NFL players. During the investigation, sophisticated brain imaging showed an increase in blood flow in the brain. At the same time, testing of the men revealed significant improvements in scores of memory, reasoning, attention, and information processing speed and accuracy.

Numerous scientific studies have shown Periwinkle to benefit the prevention and improvement of many different kinds of ailments. It enhances cognitive functions, including those involving long-and-short term memory, and it has also been shown to be valuable in protecting heart, visual, and hearing functions.

Periwinkle is a potent memory enhancer. It achieves this principally by facilitating cerebral metabolism and improving blood flow to the brain. It works by causing mild dilation of blood vessels, thereby allowing for increased cerebral blood flow, which results in increased oxygenation and glucose utilization.

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.
