More than 40 components isolated from the ginkgo tree have been identified, but only two are believed to be responsible for the herb’s beneficial effects in humans — flavonoids and terpenoids. Flavonoids (such as quercetin and rutin) have potent antioxidant effects. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that flavonoids protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids (such as ginkgolides) improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets.

One of the most common uses of ginkgo biloba is to improve memory. Scientifically controlled double blind tests have shown that ginkgo biloba increases blood circulation to the brain, thereby improving the oxygen content of brain tissue and cells. More oxygen to the brain means more clarity, increased ability to focus, increased attention span and a general feeling of being more awake. This is the reason that ginkgo biloba is an ingredient in some energy drinks. There is a special group of healthy energy drinks which based on ginkgo biloba.

  1. My friend's Mom was hospitalized lately. She'd been under general anaesthesia. When she woke up she began acting strange. She doesn't recognize anyone in the room; the onset of dementia. I will mention Ginkgo Biloba to my friend. It may be a big relief. Is it coming in any other brand name?

  2. Cool, I didn't know there was a drinkable ginko out there. I take my tabs nearly every day (I haven't been taking them quite long enough to remember them every day yet).

    Was also reading down your other articles. I've always maintained the 8 glasses of water was bunk. I've heard 1/2 your body weight in ounces and that was what the calculator turned up when I followed the links to it.

    I recently have discovered Yerba Mate tea. Would be interested in what you know about that.

  3. Ginkgo or Maidenhair Tree (Ginkgoaceae – Ginkgo Family) – other name. But most developed name is Ginkgo Biloba. I think that it'll be better for your friend to receive the doctor's consultation about it. How many? How often? etc.

    Wish great healthy to your friend's Mother.

  4. Took me time to learn every of the feedback, but i actually loved the article. It proved to be very useful to me and i'm obvious to all of the commenters here! it's all the time better when you can not solely be informed, but additionally entertained! i'm inescapable you had enjoyable penning this article.
