Ginkgo has been shown to improve both brain circulation as well as peripheral circulation, making it an excellent remedy for improving symptoms of clogged arteries, such as claudication. There is preliminary research showing small improvements in memory and other brain functions in patients with age associated memory impairment diseases (such as Alzheimer’s and dementia), however further research is needed. Regarding its ability to elevate mood and to improve memory in healthy people, results of tests so far are inconclusive. Side effects are rare and include headache and dizziness.
Tyrosine is an amino acid found in meats, dairy products, fish, eggs, nuts, beans, oats and wheat. It is involved in the synthesis of dopamine, a neurotransmitter responsible for behavior and cognition, reward and punishment systems, sleep, mood, working memory, attention and learning. Tyrosine seems to be safe in dosages up to 150 mg/kg per day for maximum 3 months. Side effects include fatigue, heartburn, joint pain, nausea and headache.
