How it works

Few herbs have been as extensively researched as ginkgo biloba extract (GBE).

Throughout the past thirty years, around five hundred pharmacological studies have been conducted on the proprietary, standardized extracts of the ginkgo biloba leaf.

This research has concluded that the herb has three major health benefits:

1. It increases cognitive function and memory

2. It helps Improve circulation throughout the body

3. It helps slow the aging process

Ginkgo contains the following active substances:


Terpene lactones

Ginkgolides A, B, and C




1. Antioxidant Benefits

Ginkgo acts as a powerful antioxidant and contributes to the oxidation of free radicals, which are associated with premature aging and dementia.

Antioxidants protect eyesight, the cardiovascular, and central nervous system.

The herb has been used in the treatment of a wide variety of circulation related disorders, such as:

Diabetic peripheral vascular disease

Raynaud's syndrome


Varicose veins.

2. Sexual Benefits

Ginkgo also helps control the transformation of cholesterol to plaque associated with the hardening of arteries. It can also relax constricted blood vessels, which has seen it used as a supplement to increase both male and female libido.

3. Memory Enhancer and Energy Booster

Ginkgo active compounds increasing the flow of oxygen to the brain, as well as optimizing the brain's use of glucose.

When consumed, food is converted into glucose - a sugar that can easily be used by the body's cells for energy.

By helping the body to make glucose available for energy use, ginkgo enhances both mental alertness and memory function.

Ginkgo therefore helps to combat fatigue by its increase in glucose utilization.

RDA for Ginkgo

There is no RDA for ginkgo since it is not an essential nutrient, but many experts recommend taking 40-80 mg, 3 times a day, on an empty stomach for best results.

It can take around 12 weeks for the benefits of ginkgo biloba supplementation to become apparent.
