Jarrow Formulas Vinpocetine Ingredients

Jarrow Formulas Vinpocetine contains the following ingredients: Vinpocetine 5mg, cellulose, and Magnesium Stearate (vegetable source).

Product Features

Jarrow Formulas Vinpocetine is a single ingredient formula. The formula is advertised to contain no wheat, no gluten, soybeans, dairy, egg, fish/shellfish and peanuts/tree nuts.

Vinpocetine is a chemical compound derived from Vincamine, an alkaloid naturally occurring in Voacanga seeds and other plants. It has been used as a prescription drug in Europe since 1960 to treat age-related memory impairment, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), cerebrovascular disorders, as well as to enhance short-term memory and concentration.
Vinpocetine is known as a peripheral vasodilator with a number of specific benefits which derive from this. It increases cerebral blood flow, has neuro-protective effects and supports brain functions such as memory and concentration. It also activates cerebral metabolism by increasing cerebral synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is known as the universal “currency” of energy because it transports chemical energy within cells during metabolic processes.

Although considered generally safe, Vinpocetine can cause some stomach, pain, headache, nausea, sleep disturbances, dizziness or nervousness.

The suggested dose is 1 capsule one or two times a day with a meal. No side effects are mentioned by the manufacturer. Consumer reviews are mixed. Precautions refer to medication that slow blood clotting.

Disadvantages

  • Potential drug interactions

Conclusion

Jarrow Formulas Vinpocetine is a formula based on Vinpocetine as single core ingredient. The product bears little differentiation from other Vinpocetine supplements; therefore we cannot make an honest comparison with alternative products. Reviews for the product are not numerous and are mixed. While some consumers report the formula gives excellent results, others say that side effects (such as headaches) determined them to seize administration, even if positive results have been noticed.

Additionally, Vinpocetine is known to interact with some type of medication, hence a specialized opinion is advised prior to starting using Jarrow Formulas Vinpocetine or any product based on Vinpocetine.

    This product is great. It improved my concentration and strengthened my memory in a very short time. I felt the effects soon after ingesting it. I’d recommend Vinpocetine to anyone who would like to improve their mental agility.
