    30 Bags
    Memory Alertness, Alzheimer, Antioxidant (Cognitive function)

    Ingredients: Ginkgo leaf
    Origin: China

    Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba; in Chinese, Korean and Japanese: 杏, pinyin romanization: yín xìng, Revised Romanization: "eun haeng", Hepburn romanization: ichō or ginnan, Vietnamese: bạch quả), acceptable variant gingko and also known as the maidenhair tree, is a unique species of tree with no living relatives. The ginkgo is a living fossil, recognisably similar to fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated and was introduced early to human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food.


    Health effects:

    Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is one of the oldest living tree species. It is also tops in scientific studies and in purchases. In Europe and the United States, ginkgo supplements are among the best-selling herbal medications.


    Ginkgo has a long history of being used in traditional medicine to treat blood disorders and improve memory, and it's best known today as way to potentially keep your memory sharp. There is some scientific evidence to back that up. Laboratory studies have shown that ginkgo improves blood circulation by opening up blood vessels and making blood less sticky. It's also an antioxidant.

    For these reasons, ginkgo may improve vein and eye health. Ginkgo may help treat dementia (including Alzheimer's disease) and intermittent claudication, or poor circulation in the legs. It may also protect memory in older adults.

    Some people use ginkgo to treat sexual performance problems. It is sometimes used to reverse the sexual performance problems that can accompany taking certain antidepressants called SSRIs.
    Ginkgo leaves have two types of chemicals (flavonoids and terpenoids) that are antioxidants. In your body, harmful particles called free radicals build up as you age, and may contribute to heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Antioxidants like those found in ginkgo fight off free radicals, and stop them from damaging DNA and other cells.

    MEDICINAL USES AND INDICATIONS
    Based on various studies, ginkgo is used for the following:


    a) Dementia and Alzheimer's disease
    Ginkgo is widely used in Europe for treating dementia. At first, doctors thought it helped because it improves blood flow to the brain. Now more study suggests it may protect nerve cells that are damaged in Alzheimer's disease. A number of studies have found that ginkgo has a positive effect on memory and thinking in people with Alzheimer's or vascular dementia.Studies suggest that ginkgo may help people with Alzheimer's disease:
    • Improve thinking, learning, and memory (cognitive function)
    • Have an easier time doing day to day activities
    • Improve social behavior
    • Have fewer feelings of depression


    b) Intermittent Claudication

    Because ginkgo improves blood flow, it has been studied in people with intermittent claudication, or pain caused by reduced blood flow to the legs. People with intermittent claudication have a hard time walking without feeling extreme pain. An analysis of eight studies showed that people taking ginkgo tended to walk about 34 meters further than those taking a placebo.


    c) Anxiety

    One preliminary study found that ginkgo might help relieve anxiety. People with generalized anxiety disorder and adjustment disorder that took a specific extract of ginkgo had fewer anxiety symptoms than those who took placebo.


    d) Glaucoma

    One small study found that people with glaucoma who took 120 mg of ginkgo daily for 8 weeks had improvements in their vision.


    e) Memory and Thinking

    Ginkgo is widely touted as a "brain herb." Some studies show that it does help improve memory in people with dementia. It's not as clear whether ginkgo helps memory in healthy people who have normal, age-related memory loss. Some studies have found slight benefits, while other studies have found it didn't help at all. Some studies have found that ginkgo helps improve memory and thinking in young and middle-aged people who are healthy.


    f) Macular Degeneration

    The flavonoids found in ginkgo may help stop or reduce some problems with the retina, the back part of the eye. Macular degeneration, often called age-related macular degeneration or AMD, is an eye disease that affects the retina. The number one cause of blindness in the Unites States, AMD is a degenerative eye disease that gets worse as time goes on. Some studies suggest that ginkgo may help preserve vision in those with AMD.


    g) Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS)

    Two studies with a somewhat complicated dosing schedule found that ginkgo helped reduced PMS symptoms. Women in the studies took ginkgo beginning on day 16 of their menstrual cycle and stopped taking it after day 5 of their next cycle, then took it again on day 16.


    h) Helps to treat sexual performance problems


    i) Raynaud's Phenomenon

    One well-designed study found that people with Raynaud's phenomenon who took ginkgo over a 10-week period had fewer symptoms than those who took placebo. More studies are needed.
