(tinctura Vinca rosea)


Vinca has more than 70 known alkaloids.
Some are used by the pharmaceutical industry for the treatment of childhood leukemia, Hodgkin’s disease, testicular cancer and cancerous tumors.
Taken as a daily supplement, it improves the blood supply to the brain, increases oxygen and glucose for the brain to use, helps prevent abnormal coagulation of blood, and it raises brain levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin.
There are two classes of active compounds in Vinca: alkaloids and tannins.
The major alkaloid is known as vincamine.
A closely related semi-synthetic derivative of vincamine widely used as medicine is known as ethyl-apovincaminate or vinpocetine.
It has vasodilating, blood thinning, and memory-enhancing actions. It has been shown in double-blind studies to help alleviate a type of dementia known as vascular dementia, in which the arteries supplying blood to the brain develop atherosclerotic plaques.

Side effects from oral use are mild, only experienced by a small number of people, and disappear after the drug has been taken for a while. Should not be taken by women who are or may become pregnant or are breast feeding
