periwinkle Vinca Minor

Organic Periwinkle (Vinca minor)

Note: These herbs and statements have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA. On the other hand, phytochemist around the world have been researching the medicinal and psychoactive constituents that they create for a long time now.

             This species has been prized as medicine for a vast history of time. On this page I will inform you of the medicinal properties of this little known herb. I'll also touch base on the scientific understanding behind its medicinal properties. You see, many people do not realize that these natural remedies have been researched at some of the worlds most prestigious eduational institutions. Phytochemistry is a scientific field that isolates and studies medicinally active chemicals that plants create throughout the span of their life cycles. Aside from this modern research, human beings have successfully used alternative healing tools as long as history has been recorded.


The following phytochemicals have been isolated under research conditions by highly educated professionals: reserpine, reserpinine, akuammicine, majdine, vinerine, ervine, vineridine, tombozine, vincamajine, vincanine, vincanidine, vincamone, apovincamine, vincaminol, desoxyvincaminol, vincorine and perivincine.


This plant is a natural source of a chemical that can be synthesized into "vinpocetine". Vinpocetine is used as an alternative method for treating aging minds. It was first isolated from the Periwinkle in 1975 by a Hungarian chemist named Csaba Szántay. This was done so nearly forty years ago to this day! The compound has vasodilator properties, as well as anticonvulsant and anti-inflammatory actions.


It seems that nature has perfected a consistent and highly advanced pharmacy through the process of evolution. This is absolutely incredible and should not be ignored. I hope to see human kind build a respectful relationship with nature and the rest of the cosmos. Knowing the truth is a big step towards living this dream.

In Madagascar the periwinkle has been used for a variety of medicinal effects as well.
