Increases blood flow to the brain. Helps short term memory loss, headache, ringing in the ears and depression. Increases circulation throughout the body.

The Ginkgo tree may be the world’s oldest living tree species. Some estimate that it has grown on this planet for over 200 million years. The Ginkgo tree was almost lost to mankind during the Ice Age, but fortunately survived in areas of China. The Ginkgo tree has shown a remarkable resilience and resistance to insects, disease and pollution. For this reason Ginkgo trees are now frequently planted along major boulevards and streets in cities throughout the world. Individual trees may live as long as 1,000 years, reaching a diameter of 3 to 4 feet. The tree bears an ivory colored inner seed that resembles an almond. The seed is edible and is sold in marketplaces in the Orient. The folk use of this tree has centered around the promotion of the tree’s leaves. The leaves of the Ginkgo tree posses a number of compounds that have been found to be of therapeutic benefit for a variety of disorders and conditions.

Method of Action: Ginkgo Biloba extract (GBE) comes from the tree’s leaves and has shown pharmacologenic action of different parts of the circulatory and nervous systems. Clinical and in vivo studies have shown the GBE to: enhance intracellular energy production, increase cellular glucose uptake, demonstrate free radical scavenging activity, increase blood flow to the brain, and improve the transmission of nerve signals.

Helps Chronic Cerebral Vascular Insufficiency – Increases Blood Flow to The Brain: In a large open trial involving 112 geriatric patients with chronic cerebral vascular insufficiency, those given GBE displayed a statistically significant regression of the major symptoms of cerebral vascular insufficiency, including: short-term memory loss, vertigo, headache, ringing in the ears, lack of vigilance and depression. These symptoms of decreased cerebral blood flow are extremely common in the geriatric population owing to the presence of antherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The extremely significant regression of these symptoms offered by Ginkgo Biloba extract suggests that vascular insufficiency may indeed by the major causative factor accounting for these so-called “age-related cerebral disorders” versus a true degenerative process.

Help Restore Mental Performance: Ginkgo Biloba extract has been shown in in-vitro experiments to increase the rate at which information is transmitted to nerve cells. However, this has also been demonstrated in clinical studies. In a double-blind placebo controlled study, the reaction time of healthy young women performing a memory test was found to have improved significantly after administration of GBE. In a separate double-blind study GBE was shown to induce a restoration of vigilance towards normal levels and improved mental performance in elderly patients. Further corroboration of these results comes from EEG tracings and behavioral observations.

Peripheral Arterial Insufficiency and Peripheral Vascular Diseases: Ginkgo Biloba extract has a demonstrated free radical scavenging effect. This combined with its effects on blood vessels and its ability to increase metabolic processes during decreased blood supply suggested that it might have clinical efficacy in arterial insufficiency. In a double-blind randomized clinical trial of GBE versus placebo in two parallel groups of patients with peripheral arterial insufficiency of the leg, GBE was shown to be superior to placebo. Both plethysmographic and Doppler ultrasound measurements (after exercise) showed increased blood flow through the affected limb in addition to more pain-free walking distance and maximum walking distance.
