Ginkgomax claims to supports memory, concentration and mental clarity, while also enhancing energy metabolism. The Ginkgo Biloba and Panax Ginseng blend is manufactured by the New York based Maxi Health Research Company.
The business was set up in 1974 and currently claims to be one of the largest suppliers of vitamins, minerals and herbal products, as well as especially designed kosher and vegetarian special product lines. The company manufactures and sells more than 130 nutritional supplements in tablet, powder, chewable, capsule and liquid forms designed to meet the health needs of the entire family.
The formula is recommended to adults who wish to achieve mental clarity and to enjoy proper memory and concentration levels. Ginkgomax is cautiously recommended to pregnant or nursing, who are advised to consult a healthcare practitioner before using any dietary supplement.
Ginkgomax includes a Proprietary Herbal Blend (400 mg) of the following ingredients: Ginkgo Biloba (leaf) extract [Std. for 24% ginkgo-flavonglycosides (14.4 mg) and 6% total terpene lactones (3.6 mg)], Panax ginseng (root) extract [Std. for 7% ginsenosides (28 mg)], vegetable cellulose, rice flour, Enzymax® (calcium carbonate, bromelain, papain, lipase, amylase, protease, silica), and Magnesium stearate.
Ginkgomax is a mixture of two standardized extracts of Ginkgo Biloba and Panax Ginseng. Panax Ginseng, also known as red, Asian or Korean Ginseng, is extremely popular among herbal remedies manufacturers today and is used for a wide spectrum of benefits. First, it is known for its adaptogenic properties, helping the body cope with stress.
Then, there are its antioxidant properties, which mainly benefit the heart (by decreasing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol) and brain tissue (protective action). Also, Panax Ginseng may have positive effects on mental function (better cognition and memory, improved speed of recall and improved accuracy and reaction time), however opinions here are mixed. Other functions include athletic enhancement and control of blood sugar. Side effects are rare, but include insomnia and high blood pressure, whereas interaction to other drugs is not fully known.
Ginkgo Biloba’s blood flow enhancing and antioxidant properties have gained it incredible popularity and a vast applicability: from mood disturbances to headache, from sexual performance problems to memory loss and cognitive decline. The standardized extract has been the subject of numerous clinical trials and research which validate its effectiveness and safety. Mild side effects are associated to Ginkgo :stomach upset, headache, constipation, dizziness or forceful heartbeat.
There are no consumer reviews available online and the manufacturer issues no side effects warning. However it advises that patients who are using blood thinning medications should consult their doctor. The recommended dosage is 1-2 capsules daily.
- Kosher certified vegetarian formula;

Ginkgomax suggests a combination of two extremely powerful herbal ingredients (Panax Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba) in a formula designed to enhance memory and concentration. Given the fact that both ingredients have been standardized and proven effective and safe, it is likely that the formula will work in the benefit areas mentioned by the manufacturer.
However, there are no consumer testimonials to assess the degree of its effectiveness, therefore we recommend you also consult a specialist prior to use. Pregnant and nursing women, as well as people on blood thinning medication are particularly advised to be cautious and use the formula only after consulting a specialist.
