FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:FROM THE LIFE EXTENSION FOUNDATION
If you're over age 30, you likely suffer structural
brain changes that impair your cognitive abilities.
The good news (up until
now) is there is a validated way to mitigate factors that contribute to
The bad news is the FDA wants to rob you of
a compound that has been safely used by Americans since the 1980s.
FDA's Warped Logic
On August 31, 2016, the
FDA published in the Federal
Register that it wants to remove vinpocetine from the
The FDA is not
alleging that vinpocetine
is unsafe, nor is the agency questioning its efficacy. In fact, the FDA
provided evidence that vinpocetine is beneficial in protecting and restoring
cognitive function lost to normal aging, along with disorders like stroke and Alzheimer's.
The basis for the FDA banning vinpocetine is a technicality that has no scientific practicality.According to the FDA's misguided logic, since a new drug application was
filed in 1981,then vinpocetine does not qualify today as a dietary supplement.
Year 1981 is not a misprint!
The FDA is actually going back to a 35-year-old
drug application and claiming this as a basis to rob your brain of a
low-cost compound that has demonstrated efficacy in human clinical trials.
600 Published Studies!
If you log on to the government's medical database (pubmed.gov), you'll see over 600 published references describing vinpocetine.
Not only does it protect against neurological aging via multiple mechanisms, but it has demonstrated efficacy against a host of systemic degenerative conditions. The FDA
pretends that these studies, readily accessible on the government's own database, are not relevant.
We believe the purpose of the FDA's proposal to remove vinpocetine is to protect pharmaceutical interests. Based on its clinical benefits, there is a strong incentive to sell vinpocetine as an expensive prescription drug.
It is imperative that you
log on to a new website vinpocetine.org to
easily send the FDAa public comment protesting their attempt to rob you of vinpocetine. We've set this up so you'll simultaneously send your Representative and two Senators a letter demanding they stop the FDA from implementing this and other proposed guidelines that will cause many popular supplements to be banned.
FDA Admits Vinpocetine is Beneficial
To bolster its position that vinpocetine needs to be removed from the market, the FDA references the following article published in the Los Angeles Times in 1986.
This article describes studies whereby vinpocetine markedly improved cognitive function in older humans. According to the FDA's twisted logic, since pharmaceutical companies funded this research over 30 years ago, then vinpocetine cannot be sold as a dietary supplement (even though the patent long ago expired).
If the FDA succeeds in banning vinpocetine, an affordable way of protecting against neurodegeneration will disappear.
To stop this flagrant new attempt by the FDA to deny Americans access to dietary supplements, please log on to vinpocetine.org

voice be heard in less than 5 minutes.
