Why Does the FDA Want to Ban this Supplement that has Been Around for Decades?Vinpocetine, a natural nootropic (nōəˈträpik), is an active ingredient in several brain boosting supplement formulas. It is also sold as an inexpensive supplement by itself. Nootropics are neurologically active memory and cognitive enhancers, promoting well being and learning potential. It is the sole ingredient of an Eastern European medicine, used since 1978 for recovering stroke victims and other neurological issues called Cavinton. Its use has spread throughout Asia and other parts of Europe. Both Cavinton and Vinpocetine, extracted from the periwinkle plant, have been tested, studied, and tried internationally for several neurological issues with mostly highly positive results since 1978. Along the way, other benefits were discovered related to heart health, vision, hearing, and more. Now there is a current controversy involving the FDA and a Missouri Senator seeking to restrict public access to this supplement which has a long history of use outside the U.S.

If The FDA are against it, it must be good for you!
I am suspicious of this negative FDA response to/about VINPOCETINE!
I have ordered 30mg tablets on-line and will let you know how I am getting on because I had been professionally diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in London since July 2016.
The FDA also banned MGN3 Extra - an auto-immune booster for combatting cancers; well, I was diagnosed here in London on 17th February 1999 with prostate cancer and had permanent brachytherapy which killed the cancer cells but at the expense of damaging my cavernous nerves - now allegedly irreparable by orthodox medicine!
Hence my suspicion of FDA bans!
