For Mental Alertness, Memory and Blood Circulation
Life in the Fast Lane
Living in the “information era” can be hard on our memory. There is more information available while we seem to have less time to handle them. If an occasional slip of memory is common for you and you forget things easily, ecalling names or where you left your belongings is getting harder and frustrating you, your brain may be deteriorating faster than you age. As we age, our body start to make less of the chemicals your brain cells need to work. The problem worsens as we grow older. The medical usage of Ginkgo biloba dates back to about 5000 years ago and has been proven in scientific studies to be beneficial for improving memory and brain function.
Ginkgo Biloba – the Brain Herb
Ginkgo biloba is one of the oldest living tree species. The extract of ginkgo leaves is used medicinally in North America and many ther countries around the world, where it's one of the most popular medicinal herbs. In traditional Chinese medicine, the seeds of the ginkgo tree are used. Ginkgo contains two main groups of active constituents namely, Ginkgo flavone glycosides (bioflavonoids) and Terpene lactones - ginkgolides and bilobalides. An effective Ginkgo supplement should contain a standardised level of 24% total flavonoids and 6% terpene lactones.
Researchers at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute found significant improvement in verbal recall among a group of people with age-associated memory impairment, who took the herbal supplement ginkgo biloba for six months compared with a group that consumed a placebo. There has been numerous research and studies that establish a direct correlation between improved cognitive functions and regular Ginkgo supplements.
Ginkgo and Circulation
Do you have poor blood circulation and commonly experience cold hands and feet? Did you know that Ginkgo is also beneficial for reducing blood viscosity and enhancing blood circulation? Ginkgo helps to dilate the blood vessels and micro-capillaries in the circulatory system, which increases both blood circulation and oxygen levels in the brain and other critical organ tissues. It has been proven that oxygen-rich blood enhances the memory. Hence, with regular Ginkgo consumption to improve blood circulation, cold and numb limbs can be significantly reduced.

No. It will not, but you are advised to drink more water on a daily basis for better absorption of your health supplements.
It is true that caution should be exercised when taking a blood thinner and Ginkgo together, because Gingko has mild blood thinning effect. However, as long as you space your intake 2 hours or more apart from medication, the effect should be minimal. If you’re on a very high dose of blood thinner, please consult your physician to determine the potential benefits and risk of such combination.
It is normally not recommended to take Ginkgo and Ibuprofen together. The reason is that Ginkgo has the anti-blood clotting activity and ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) may increase bleeding. Potentially they may act on top of each other to increase the chance of bleeding. However, the real evidence is rare, to demonstrate this actually is the case. We suggest that you avoid taking them together for a long period. But occasional intake of Ibuprofen in addition to a regular Ginkgo supplement should be fine.
