Product Description
One of the most commonly used herbs which has been in traditional Chinese medicine for 1000's of years. Particularly useful in the winter months because it improves the blood supply from the heart to the extremities. It also improves circulation in the legs which helps fight leg cramps. Many studies have proven the effectiveness of Ginkgo Biloba in helping circulation in the brain. Increasing the level of arousal in the brain, taking the strain of remembering away and restoring short term memory. It also helps improve alertness and general concentration. The main active compounds found in Ginkgo Biloba are called Glycosides and it is recommended to take a standardised product with at least 24% Glycosides contained. These have been shown to inhibit a naturally occuring substance known as Platelet Activating Factor, causing stick platelets to clump together and form blood clots. Ginkgo Biloba appears to work by opening the blood vessels, which then accounts for increased blood flow. In the brain this in turn means increased levels of oxygen. A lack of oxygen to the brain can mean loss of mental alertness. The elderly suffering from circulatory problems should consult their doctor before using ginkgo, as such problems can indicate a more serious disease.
