Alchem Launches Vinpocetine Ingredient for Brain Health

May 2, 2012

ReQollect is derived from periwinkle and Voacanga africana plants and can be formulated for softgels, tablets, and liquid dietary supplements.

Alchem USA Inc. (Minnetonka, MN) will introduce ReQollect vinpocetine (ethyl apovincaminate), a memory and cognitive function ingredient, at next week’s SupplySide MarketPlace tradeshow (booth #514) in New York City.

Vinpocetine has been the subject of clinical studies covering more than 30,000 individuals, says Alchem, with results ranging from faster reaction time to better scores on cognitive impairment and dementia tests.

“Vinpocetine is often called the ‘smart nutrient’ for its studied ability to help improve cognitive function and memory by increasing blood circulation through the brain,” said the company in a recent press release. “Vinpocetine is commonly used for enhancing memory as well as for helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions that harm learning, memory, and information processing skills as people age.”

ReQollect is derived from periwinkle and Voacanga africana plants and can be formulated for softgels, tablets, and liquid dietary supplements.

Product development managers can obtain a white paper from Alchem summarizing research on the ingredient.
