  • Purpose: For improving cognitive function as demonstrated in increased mental sharpness, concentration, and memory. Primary uses include age-related cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and Intermittent claudication. Secondarily it has been used for Atherosclerosis, Depression in elderly persons, Impotence of vascular origin, Macular degeneration, Retinopathy and Vertigo.

    How it Works: The medical benefits of Gingko biloba extract (GBE) rely primarily on two groups of active components: the gingko flavone glycosides and the terpene lactones. The 24% gingko flavone glycoside designation on GBE labels indicates the carefully measured balance of bioflavonoids. These bioflavonoids are primarily
    responsible for GBE’s antioxidant activity and ability to inhibit platelet aggregation (stickiness). These two actions may help GBE prevent circulatory diseases such as atherosclerosis and support the brain and central nervous system.

    Dosage: Take 1 tablet a day with cold, clear fluids on an empty stomach.

    Side Effects: Gingko biloba extract is essentially devoid of any serious side effects. Mild headaches lasting for a day or two and mild upset stomach have been reported in a very small percentage of people using GBE. Pregnant or lactating women should consult a physician before taking.

    Traditional Uses: Medicinal use of gingko can be traced back almost 5,000 years in Chinese herbal medicine. The nuts of the tree were most commonly recommended and used to treat respiratory tract ailments. A tea of the leaves was occasionally used for elderly persons experiencing memory loss.

    Related Info: Three double blind studies have now shown that GBE is helpful for persons in early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as the closely related multi-infarct dementia. Patients with other types of dementia also respond to GBE, including, as mentioned above, problems due to poor blood flow to the brain.
