Vinpocetine is a derivative of the alkaloid Vincamine. Vincamine is found in the aerial part of Vinca minor plant and can also be derived from other plant sources such as the Voaconga and the crioceras longiflorus. The Vinca minor plant is a creeping root plant which has a long history of use as a traditional tonic to refresh weariness, especially the type associated with advanced age, and also as an astringent, for excessive menses, bleeding gums and mouth sores. Linnea's Vincamine is derived from Tabersonine, which is in turn the alkaloid extract of Voacanga seeds found primarily in the West Africa.
