Ginkgo Biloba is gaining popularity for its ability to improve brain function, short-term memory loss, alertness, ringing in the ear, headache, and even impotent.

Ginkgo Biloba is the world’s oldest living tree species which appeared on Earth some 230 million years ago. Ginkgo’s medicinal use began as early as 2800 B.C. The Chinese have venerated the Ginkgo’s foul-smelling fruit for thousands of years, using it in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), using it for everything from promoting longevity, increasing blood circulation to the brain, relieving the symptoms of asthma and coughs, helping the body eliminate parasites, and increasing sexual endurance. Today, ginkgo leaf extracts are the leading prescribed medicines in Germany and France with millions of prescription a year.

Ginkgo’s Active Compounds:

The major active compounds in ginkgo leaves are known as flavon glycosides and terpene lactones. These specific flavonoid molecules are found only in ginkgo. Flavonoids are wildly recognized for their ability to strengthen capillaries and connective tissue structures. Manufactures use the flavonoid glycoside molecules in ginkgo as a guideline when analyzing and standardizing an extract. Most extracts on the market today are standardized to contain 24% ginkgo glycosides and 6% terpene lactones.

More than 250 clinical and experimental studies have explore the benefits of this 24/6% standardized extracts that include protecting body tissues against damage by stabilizing cell membranes, acting as an antioxidant, and scavenging free radicals. Ginkgo Biloba Extracts also helps the cells use oxygen and glucose more efficiently for energy. By improving the brain’s supply of blood, oxygen and glucose, Ginkgo may help improve many common conditions found in the elderly:

Short-term Memory Loss

Ginkgo Biloba’s effect on platelets offers additional protection against a stroke. In a clinical
study on post-stoke patients, Ginkgo improved the viscosity (thickness) of blood and
plasma to help prevent clotting and keep blood flowing freely. Ginkgo extracts also
increases the rate at which information is transmitted between nerve cells. For example, in
one double-blind study, healthy young women performing a memory test reacted more
quickly after taking Ginkgo. In another double-blind clinical study, ginkgo biloba restored
vigilance and improved mental performance in elderly patients. Patients whose condition
was more severe at the beginning of the study displayed the greatest improvement.

Ginkgo Biloba’s ancient benefits have finally appeared on the prestigious Journal of the
American Medical Association (JAMA) in the October, 1997 issue. The first double-blind
study in the U.S. on the effects of ginkgo, researchers say, proved that an extract of ginkgo
has measurable effect on treating dementia or Alzheimer’s diseases.

Ginkgo Biloba causes no side effects at the prescribed dose. Mild reactions such as
gastrointestinal upset and headache are quire rare.
