I found Nicergoline to be especially effective, and the best of the bunch. Nicergoline is more effective than Vinpocentine in my experience. Ginko is insignificant IMO. I don't think Idebenone is particularly good for this, but that's just my opinion (where are the studies you refer to, Mortuorum, that show that Idebenone does this with "considerable efficacious potency").
...lol....I guess I meant it more as an adjunct, Idebenone helps protect the brain in situations of hypoxia, low oxygen, preventing damage from occurring, as the Ergoloids are supposed to, during normal as well as situations wherein brain and heart tissues may be quickly damaged during low ATP production scenarios of occurence due to poor tissue oxygenation. It was recommended synergistically, symbiotic to the request at hand. I was making the assumption that the poster was seeking to improve hypoxia, even of the normal, sedentary variety we all are subject to every moment of the day. I would try this in conjunction with Theobromine before messing around with Ergoloids, personally. Of course, one could combine them all as well. Despite potential controversy and possible pro-oxidative effects, I think these can be offset with Idebenone, I have less faith personally in long term safety of the Ergoloids and additionally, I just don't feel as though they are practical to utilize on a daily basis.
There is a plethora of research data available for decades now attesting to Idebenone's multiple mitochondrial-protective, brain electron transport-enhancing, excitotoxin-protecting, hypoxia protective, stroke and surgical recovery/damage minimization inducing, organ protecting, etc. etc. benefits, do you really need or desire links to all of this research?
I must say that I should add here that I strongly agree with "Prophet's" posting, I would urge "NavyBlue" to invest in some raw cacao products, recipes, etc. before investing in "pills", too........
