FOCUS ON MEMORY

Vinpocetine Plus for Cognitive Wellness

Memory loss and mental exhaustion are not purely age-related; any student will attest to the reality of “brain-strain.”

Most of us think of memory as the crown jewel of brain health. The fact is that while memory is indeed important, it is one of several integrated functions of brain health. It would benefit every one of us, whether we are 19 or 90, to focus on the wider perspective of overall cognitive wellness. 

What is Cognitive Wellness & How Does it Relate to Memory?

The word cognition is derived from the Latin word “cognoscere,” which means “to know.” Medical dictionaries define cognition as “the mental faculty of knowing, which includes perceiving, recognizing, remembering, conceiving, judging, reasoning, and imagining.” Needless to say, memory is considered the cognitive function we most often call upon.

We use memory to store all types of information from phone numbers to where we left our keys, to the names of things and people. Memory is an essential component of multiple cognitive activities including reading, reasoning, mental calculation, and mental imagery. Naturally, any loss of memory is disconcerting. Clearly, we want to do everything we can to keep our memory and all of our cognitive tools sharp and in good working order.

What is Prairie Naturals Vinpocetine Plus & What Does it Do?

Prairie Naturals Vinpocetine Plus is a “nootropic” substance. Nootropics, commonly referred to as “smart pills” are defined as a class of substances that promote cognitive wellness and brain performance. Vinpocetine Plus’ synergistic formulation of vinpocetine and blueberry extract protects against brain-aging and cognitive decline. These naturally occurring antioxidant-rich phytonutrients are among the world’s most thoroughly researched and recommended. Vinpocetine is derived from the beautiful periwinkle plant (Vinca minor) and Voacanga Africana, a tree native of West Africa. Research studies conclude that vinpocetine increases blood flow to the brain, reduces inflammation and protects the central nervous system against degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. 

What’s So Great About Blueberry Extract?

The short answer is: just about everything!  With over 450 varieties of blueberries worldwide, every culture values the healing and nutritive power of these little blue antioxidant gems. A recent study strongly suggests that the antioxidants in blueberries clear out the accumulated toxic proteins in the brain that accelerate brain aging. The study also showed that blueberry intake prevents skin and nerve aging while protecting against the multiple effects of radiation exposure.

Fight Brain Strain! 

Memory loss and mental exhaustion are not purely age-related; any student will attest to the reality of “brain-strain” a state of intense mental fatigue exacerbated by stress and overuse. Vinpocetine Plus provides mental support for students and people of all ages wanting to enhance and sustain brain power. 

The Wonderful World of Nootropics

Why do we need to include these nootropic substances in our daily supplement program?  According to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, there are now 500,000 Canadians with dementia-related conditions. Within a generation, they predict, that number will more than double to encompass a staggering 3% of Canadians. The magnitude of the problem is so astounding that scientists worldwide are calling cognitive decline and dementia “The Silent Epidemic of the 21st Century”.

The active ingredients in Vinpocetine Plus are considered to have nootropic potential and are commonly prescribed as “smart drugs” in Germany. Interestingly, while Canada ranks 16th highest in the world with dementia-related deaths, Germany comes in at a much, much lower ranking of 89th place!

 Once again, “prevention is the best medicine” and a high-antioxidant diet with select supplementation, regular exercise, positive thinking and daily mental stimulation is the surest way to live a long, healthy, and mentally vibrant life. 

Nootropics help to:

  • Improve availability of brain neurochemicals (neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones)

  • Improve oxygen flow to brain
  • Stimulate nerve growth & function

  • Improve memory & learning
