Ginkgo Biloba has been used for thousands of years to boost mental alertness, improve cerebral circulation, and the overall function of the brain.
As a nootropic, Ginkgo has been shown to be particularly effective in elderly memory loss, slow thinking and reasoning, and tinnitus. One study shows significant improvement in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer patients. Most noticeable in adults suffering cognitive decline, Ginkgo Biloba seems to improve short term memory and recall. It’s also effective in reducing stress and anxiety, and boosting mood.
Dosage of Ginkgo Biloba is typically 120 – 240 mg. per day with food. Caution should be taken because Ginkgo can increase internal bleeding in some users.
The only source of ginkgo is the ginkgo tree. Most ginkgo supplements are derived from the leaves.
