Ginkgo biloba is one of the oldest trees known and has been used to support health for nearly 2‚800 years. Ginkgo has been found to:
Support healthy circulation
Help maintain the normal function and tone of blood vessels
Support healthy oxygen and glucose metabolism in the brain
Stabilize capillaries and make them less fragile
Support normal coagulation of blood
Support healthy aging in the brain
Ginkgo leaf extracts contain several active constituents with neuroprotective and cardioprotective properties. These include flavonoids (e.g.‚ rutin‚ quercetin‚ kaempferol‚ and proanthocyanidins)‚ terpenoids (i.e.‚ ginkgolides)‚ and organic acids. Flavonoids are known to strengthen capillaries‚ promote healthy blood flow to the brain‚ and help maintain cognitive health.
Flavonoids such as quercetin and kaempferol from Ginkgo biloba are potent antioxidants and scavengers of many species of free radical‚ protecting against oxidative cell damage.83 Ginkgo protects the energy-producing mitochondria in the cells‚ thus enhancing oxygen utilization and cellular respiration.75 Ginkgo may also inhibit production of pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1beta and TNF-alpha while upregulating the production of an anti-inflammatory cytokine called IL-10.
Ginkgo Biloba Certified Extract™ contains 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones. In addition to what is certified to be in the product‚ what is not in this extract is also important. The health regulatory agency that regulates ginkgo purity in Germany mandates that it not contain more than 5 ppm of ginkgolic acid. Life Extension’s low-cost ginkgo contains less than 1 ppm of ginkgolic acid.

Ive been using this ginkgo for about 6 weeks now and almost immediately noticed a difference in my memory. I recall things vastly better than I used to - its quite amazing. And the price is great for the quantity. I take 1/2 a capsule in the a.m. in m smoothie and the other 1/2 at night in water. From what Ive read its better to spread out the dosage.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
