Periwinkle is also known by the names Vinca minor,Vinca Major and Myrtle. Periwinkle is an endangered species native to Madagascar that was used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat numerous diseases, including diabetes. The leaves, and seeds of the periwinkle contain Vincamine, a precursor ( which means that it can be converted organically in your body ) in to the chemical Vinpocetine, which is used medicinally to naturally enhance memory in aging minds. With shows and movies such as Limitless and Lucy finding their way in to pop culture now there has been a dramatic rise in the manufacturing of the so called smart drugs to improve memory and focus in individuals.
Like with a vast majority of these chemically enhanced derivatives put out by big pharma companies in our opinion also shared by other natural herb enthusiasts it may be safer to try the herbal form of Periwinkle and have the natural balance of the plant from the leaves and seeds instead of using the chemically isolated and strengthened Vinpocetine. Periwinkle alkaloids are a part of treatment of leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, malignant lymphomas, neuroblastoma, Wilms tumor, Kaposi's sarcoma, mycosis fungoides and to improve cerebral blood flow. In the Caribbean islands it has been used by natives for centuries to treat high blood pressure.
Coagulant / Hemostatic
This cut and sifted periwinkle can be used by making it into a Tea.
NOTES: We have personally blended this Periwinkle with Ginseng and Goto Kola in Tea form using the muslin bags here on our site and in our opinion found it helpful in improving short term memory especially. There are many more expensive products and smart drugs that are synthetic or altered derivatives of this blend. However again in our opinion it is safer to use precursors and let our bodies convert the active ingredients naturally as needed.
