GLOSSARY
GINKGO BILOBA (GINKGO)

Ginkgo Biloba (Ginkgo)

 

How does it work?

Gingko is used in western herbal medicine for its antioxidant, vasodilatory, antiplatelet, anticoagulant, neuroprotective, neurotransmitter alteration, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activity.1 This is due to containing many active constituents such as ginkgolides and flavonol glycosides which have been studied extensively.2 It is thought these constituents increase blood, nutrient and oxygen flow and therefore improve conditions that may have restricted cerebral, retinal and peripheral blood flow.3

What results can be expected?         

Ginkgo is commonly used to increase microcirculatory blood flow through arteries, veins and capillaries therefore may assist in those with conditions associated with poor circulation such as fluid retention, peripheral vascular diseases and reynaud’s syndrome.4 Due to vasodilation and anti-inflammatory activity, ginkgo may also help reduce symptoms of tinnitus, vertigo, glaucoma, dementia and memory impairment, particularly in the elderly.5
