Pure Ginloba Extract
Ginkgo Biloba is perhaps the most widely used herbal treatment aimed at augmenting cognitive functions, that is: improving memory, learning, alertness, and mood. Ginkgo has been used to relieve tension, anxiety, improve mental alertness, elevate mood and restore energy. Studies have confirmed that Ginkgo increases blood flow to the retina, and can slow retinal deterioration resulting in an increase of visual acuity. Ginkgo can be used to improve hearing loss in the elderly. It also improves circulation in the extremities relieving cold hands and feet, swelling in the limbs and chronic arterial blockage.
Brain Function Effects - The brain is one of the hungriest organs of our body. For proper function, it needs to be continuously bathed in oxygen an nutrient-rich blood. Little malfunctions in the circulation of the capillaries can cause memory problems in the brain. By repairing these malfunctions in brain circulation, Ginkgo can increase brain function, including memory. Ginkgo also has the capacity to increase the oxygen content of the blood. It has been shown that memory is enhanced by oxygen-rich blood. When it comes to brain function, Ginkgo goes further, all neural functions in the brain are achieved by neural transmission. Ginkgo both increases the amount of neural transmission and increases the number of receptor sites for neural transmission. Again, this dramatically improves brain functions.
Other Uses - Even though Ginkgo is one of the most important herbs for the brain, it is important to understand that is components don’t go directly to the brain. The ginkgosides work as herbal antioxidants throughout the body, and enhance the microcirculation of capillary beds throughout the body. This is why Ginkgo is beneficial to all organs that have rich blood supplies, including the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, and spleen, to mention only a few. Ginkgo has also been shown to be beneficial for headaches, vertigo (dizziness), hearing loss, allergies, dementia. Scientific literature overall does suggest that Ginkgo (120 to 240 milligrams daily) benefits people with early stage Alzheimer’s disease and multi-infarct dementia. Multiple clinical trails have evaluated Ginkgo performance, fatigue, headache, dizziness, depression, and anxiety. It is believed that cerebral insufficiency is caused by decreased blood flow to the brain due to clogged blood vessels. Some research reports benefits of Ginkgo in patients with these symptoms.
Standard dosage: 12-15 drops in water or juice, three times daily in between meals.
