Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)
Natural Support For Healthy Brain and Circulation
Ginkgo is one of the most well-studied herbs for age-related memory changes. It is also a potent antioxidant. Ginkgo increases circulation to small-diameter blood vessels (such as those in the brain and extremities) and inhibits platelet aggregation (decreases blood “stickiness”). Ginkgo also has anti-allergy effects.
Ginkgo has been studied and found useful for:
- early-stage Alzheimer’s
- multiple infarct dementia (memory changes caused by “mini strokes”)
- age-related depression
- stroke (blood clot) prevention
- deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- impotence (erectile dysfunction; ERD)
- multiple sclerosis
- vascular insufficiency
- chronic respiratory allergies
- allergy-related conditions.
Ginkgo is one of the best-selling natural remedies worldwide. Many alternative physicians and researchers feel that ginkgo should be part of the Longevity Protocol for everyone over age 50.
Suggested dose: 1 cap ginkgo, 1-2 times per day.
Target dose: 240 mg per day of 24% flavoneglycosides.
Each Capsule contains: Ginkgo biloba extract 120 mg, (standardized to 24% flavoneglycosides.)
I.) Ginkgo should be used cautiously in women of menstrual age because it has anti-coagulation effects which can increase menstrual bleeding.
II.) Anyone preparing to have surgery or taking blood-thinning medications should tell their doctor about ginkgo intake. Discontinue ginkgo one week before surgery. In conjunction with blood thinning drugs, the drug doses may need to be decreased (ginkgo may enhance the blood-thinning effects of certain drugs).
