Supplements in the News

Vinpocetine is in the spotlight on the Dr. Oz show

A February installment of the Dr. Oz Show featured Bryce Wylde (alternative medicine expert) discussing several plant-derived supplements. One of them was vinpocetine.

Said Bryce Wylde: “I love this stuff! The reason I love it is that it boosts memory.”

He attributes its effects to its ability to dilate blood vessels in the brain, thereby bringing more oxygen, glucose, and other nutrients to brain cells. This explanation is an oversimplification, but Wylde had less than five minutes to cover three different subjects.
