Vinpocetine is a derivative of Vincamine, naturally occurring in Crioceras longiflorus.
Clinical studies suggest that Vinpocetine facilitates cerebral metabolism by improving cerebral blood flow, increasing glucose and oxygen utilization by neurons and concentration of neurotransmitters involved in the process of memory formation. Clinical studies have also shown that Vinpocetine may help to maintain healthy microcirculation in the inner vital organs of ears and eyes.
Research has shown that the effects of this compound go beyond mere prevention and turn vinpocetine into a Powerful Memory Enhancer.
Its effects have been studied preferentially in animals:
Vinpocetine Covex 5mg is absorbed rapidly when administered orally, reaching maximum concentration in 1.5 hours. Its bioavailability is very variable, oscillating between 7-57%, and increasing with the simultaneous ingestion of food.
The volume of distribution is approximately 3 l/Kg in young adults and superior values have been described in the elderly (approximately 7 l/Kg).
Vinpocetine Covex 5mg is extensively metabolized in the liver, with the apovincaminic acid (AVA) being the principal resulting metabolite, apparently destitute of pharmacological activity.
