Ginko Biloba

Ginko Biloba Extract:  Ginko Trees are one of the oldest living species of trees. They date back hundreds of millions of years and are the only tree to have survived the atomic blast of Hiroshima. Those trees are still alive today! Ginko Biloba is extracted from the leaves of the tree. It is truly one of the most researched of the herbs. Ginko extract increases blood flow to the peripheral arteries, vessels and brain thereby increasing oxygenation of the tissues and brain. Good circulation is critical to overall good health. When tissues are deprived of nutrients and oxygen they begin to deteriorate.

Ginko has two groups of active compounds, flavonoids and terpene lactones including Ginkolides A, B and C, bilobalide, quercetin and kaempferol. Ginko is a powerful antioxidant free radical scavenger and helps control allergic inflammation and asthma. It is well studied for its positive effects on brain function. Studies have shown that it increases mental alertness, enhances memory, reduces mental fatigue and increases energy. Studies have shown Ginko to be effective in slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s symptoms, relieve depression, anxiety, headaches, tinnitus and dizziness by increasing blood flow to the brain. Some studies have shown that Ginko may help slow macular degeneration by increasing blood flow to the nerve rich fibers of the eyes. Ginko may be effective in treating other conditions related to poor circulation like diabetes, impotence and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
