      Dear English members, I'm looking for the supplement mentioned in this forum. It seems to help to many people and I feel it may help me to cause each time I take a 'vasodilatateur' ( I have no idea how it's called in Eng) I feel a small relief and my T changes form from annoying sound to thousands of cicadas which is much easier to bear. However , France is very restrictive when it comes to supplements and I can't buy it here. I wanted to ask a friend who often goes to London to buy it for me, but I don't know if it's sth one can find easily in any pharmacy or it's only to find on the internet as well? I wouldn't like him to have to spend too much time looking for it. Thanks a lot.

      Thanks, but that's not at all an answer to the question. I know it's available online, but the idea is exactly to avoid buying on the net cause for some reason each time I order things from England it takes ages for it to arrive to France. I will have it much sooner if I can ask this person to buy it from me in London, but on the condition that it's easy to find in pharmacies. Is it?

      Wouldn't have a clue. I haven't ever seen it in health stores or pharmacies.

      you're more likely to find it in any large health store eg wholefoods than a pharmacy.

      Just google it and buy it from an online source. I use 10mg from a company called "Source Naturals"
      It does tame my T but not always.

      Sailboardman, as I said, I started the thread exactly not to have to buy online cause I'm impatient. I know I can google it..I've been buying online for more than decade. But guess what, I finally gave in to it again. However, amazon is not always the best deal. After having checked and compared a dozen of websites I bought it on iherb.com.
      Not only the prices are lower, but you get a sugnificant discount for first shopping plus reduction if you buy further boxes. I ordered 4 of them for the price of what others provided for 1,5. The only minus - it's coming from California, so I can wait even as long as a month.( That's what they say.) That's why I wanted to buy it in persona..
      PS. Do you take 10 mg a day or more?

      I never said I know it was going to cure me. I believe it will help a bit. As I noticed that vasodilators made my T a bit more bearable and I slept better thanks to that. And this one is natural, which I like. Contrary to other stuff it has a lot of positive feedback. If it doesn't help for T, at least it shall be useful for my upcoming year of studies as it's supposed to speed thinking and boost memory in addition to protecting brain cells from damage.

      Well, the ebay seller I sent you is selling 365 capsules 30MG for 44.84 Euros. Quite cheap if you ask me.

      "This product is no longer available. Continue shopping at Costco."

      And this thread is about Vinpocetine in England. Last I checked, Costco is a US-based company and they don't ship to England:

      "Currently, Costco.com offers shipping in the United States only. For items available to ship to Canada, visit our website located at www.costco.ca"

      L arginine and viagra are vasodilators.. (caution with L arginine if you are hsv pos). Nitric oxide is also a vasodilator..which might be why some are helped by exercise (as NO is released during strenuous exercise) i believe ALA assists with NO production by mitochondria.

      I bought it from the USA finally, months ago already. Took it for about a month and stopped cause I didn't see any change. What's more, today sb posted about possible drawback of vinpocetine. Still, I would maybe keep taking it if it changed anything, but I state that my T is at its calmest if I just don't take anything at all. ( anything that messes up with the brain anyway ).
