Ginkgo Biloba is an ancient tree whose leaves have been used as medicinal remedies for thousands of years. Today, it has a wide array of therapeutic uses, some of which have not been demonstrated through thorough research and clinical trials. Some of its most notable benefits include improvement of memory and the reduction of anxiety, stress, tinnitus and headaches, which are attributed to Ginkgo’s antioxidant and blood flow enhancing properties.
The herb works by improving brain blood circulation, hence ensuring proper oxygen and nutrient supply to the central nervous system. Clinical trials have shown it to be effective in improving working memory in healthy individuals.
Ginkgo is considered generally safe (both in extract and leaf powder) but has been reported to cause stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, lightheadedness or even loss of consciousness in some extremely rare cases. Also there is concern that it may decrease the ability of the blood to clot and to interfere with diabetes and seizures.
The recommended dosage is 2 vegetarian capsules daily. Consumer reviews can be found in small number and are mixed. No side effects are mentioned by the manufacturer.
