Ginkgo Biloba Extract
120 Veggie Capsules • 120 mg
This product contains standardized ginkgo biloba extract 24% - 6% to promote concentration, memory, and blood flow to the brain and extremities.

Ginkgo biloba is the world’s oldest living species of tree. Individual trees live as long as 1000 years. Ginkgo grows mostly in the southern and eastern United States, southern France, China, and Korea. The leaves of the tree are used in contemporary herbal medicine.

Therapeutic and medicinal use of ginkgo biloba can be traced back to almost 5,000 years in Chinese herbal medicine. The nuts of the tree were frequently recommended for the respiratory system. The use of the leaves extract is a modern development that started in Europe.

The medicinal benefits of ginkgo biloba extract (GBE) are attributed to two groups of active constituents: the ginkgo flavone glycosides and the terpene lactones. Ginkgo flavone glycosides, which make up approximately 24% of the extract, are primarily responsible for GBE’s antioxidant activity and may mildly promote inhibition of platelet aggregation (stickiness). These two actions of GBE may help people with circulatory complications and support the brain and central nervous system. In addition to the cardiovascular system, GBE’s antioxidant action may also extend to the brain and retina of the eye. Preliminary trials have suggested potential benefit, supporting the improvement of conditions such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The terpene lactones found in GBE, known as ginkgolides and bilobalide, make up about 6% of the extract. They are associated with promoting circulation to the brain and other parts of the organism and may support nerve cells. GBE regulates the tone and elasticity of blood vessels making circulation more effective.

Ginkgo biloba is also well-known for its effects on memory and thinking (cognitive function). It may support cognitive performance in healthy older adults, in people with age-related cognitive decline and in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.
