- Ginkgo biloba is the oldest living tree species, it has survived relatively unchanged for at least 200 million years. Originally from China, ginkgo has been recommended in Chinese herbal medicine for its numerous nutritional benefits for the brain and circulatory system.
- With age, the body often suffer from decreased blood vessel elasticity and tone, and decreased blood flow. Insufficient blood and oxygen to the brain can lead to a deterioration of cognitive function. Studies over the past 30 years show that 120 to 240 mg a day of extract of Ginkgo biloba increases blood flow to the brain resulting in increased oxygen and glucose utilization with subsequent improvement in mental function. These benefits are attributed to two main classes of phytoactive compounds present in the Ginkgo biloba leaf: ginkgo flavone glycosides and terpene lactones.
