What can help Prevent Cerebrovascular Issues

Written by Jules Riley. Posted in Articles

Cerebrovascular disorder is a very serious thing that needs to be understood, but it is also something that can be avoided. Cerebrovascular disorder is also known as a stroke. Strokes happen when blood stops going to a part of the brain for a short period of time and can cause some serious health effects, and brain damage.

Some people use aspirin to help them diminish the chances of getting a stroke but aspirin can damage the intestine and lead to other health problems. Some people have started using Vinpocetine to help improve their chances at not getting a stroke.

Vinpocetine has been shown to help improve blood flow as well as have a variety of health benefits. Vinpocetine is a periwinkle extract. Periwinkle extract has been noted to dilate blood vessels, allowing the blood to cross the blood brain barrier which enhances the circulation in the blood, while improving oxygen uptake into the brain causing the red blood cells to be more absorbable.

Due to the effects of Vinpocetine and what it does to the brain it can cause nausea, dizziness, and sleeplessness. This is because Vinpocetine increases the uptake of blood to the brain which may be over stimulating when first taken. If you have a high caffeine tolerance these issues should not affect you.

This product can be taken with acetyl-l-carnitine, DMAE, ginkgo biloba, and Choline. If you want an extra boost taking it with caffeine can really help mental focus for studying or to help get through the last few hours at work.
