Vinpotropile ® is a combination of Vinpocetine and Piracetam. Vinpocetine was first isolated from Lesser Periwinkle plant by the Hungarian chemist Csaba Szántay. It was found that that the compound has cerebral-flow enhancing and neuroprotective effect. Over the last decades it has been extensively studied and now it is used in Eastern Europe for the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders and age-related memory impairment. 

Vinpocetine and Piracetam work synergistically, with Vinpocetine improving mainly blood flow and Piracetam increasing glucose and oxygen consumption. 

Vinpocetine is on the Russian List of Vital & Essential Medicine.

One pack of Vinpotropil ® contains 30 or 60 pills, each with 5 mg Vinpocetine and 400 mg Piracetam, which is sufficient for approximately 10 and 20 days of administration.
