(LONG ANSWER): Ginkgo Biloba Supplement is an herb that can help improve memory. (Detail from Google scholar:”It contains flavonoids and several compounds that have antioxidant, antiseptic, antimicrobial, sedative, and vasodilative effects… It has been shown to excite neurochemistry, blood vessel elasticity, and the creation of this neurogenic neuroclicals, dopamine and noradrenalin.” Also, see my post on”Dementia, Colds, And Alzheimer’s” for more information on ginkgo biloba}

(ANUMED FROM GERD, LONG ANSWER): There is not any clinical research that shows ginkgo biloba helps prevent memory loss in people with mild or moderate forms of Alzheimer’s Disease. (Detail from Google scholar:” Preliminary evidence suggests that ginkgo biloba can help reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia (age-related psychological reduction ), but the benefits of the supplements are unknown. Ginkgo appears to be associated with lower incidence of stroke, yet there are no trials that directly associate ginkgo biloba with an increased chance of heart attack or stroke. There’s also a lack of information regarding the effect of ginkgo biloba on kids, especially those with learning disabilities. The majority of the studies that have examined the effects of ginkgo biloba on memory function have been either placebo-controlled or have involved very tiny numbers of subjects. (Detail from Google scholar:”Ginkgo… does not appear to work for the treatment of moderate memory problems in children”.)

(ANNEMorial OF THE AGING OF SADO & KORETEC): This was originally written as a Backdrop for the book,”Euromuscular Aging: A Manual of Nutritional Supplements for the Prevention and Treatment of Aging”. I decided to include this little tidbit about the ginkgo biloba extract when I found that Dr. Konstantinov, the programmer of this publication, is an adviser to the Russian government. Also, I read this in Russia, and also there have been many doctors practicing ginkgo biloba extract. I found it curious that Dr. Konstantinov includes it here as a very helpful wellness supplement because it’s extremely controversial. The fact he acknowledges this and writes about it makes me wonder just what his motives are.

(MENTULARY FUNCTIONS OF Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract): The Chinese have used ginkgo biloba for centuries, and there’s no question that it has favorable impacts on the memory, mood, concentration, etc, however there are also asserts it may slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, a disease that contributes to death. If true, this would mean that ginkgo biloba can prevent the worsening of the illness which all experts agree is among the most serious issues facing us now. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that destroys the brain tissues and triggers the psychological decline known as dementia, which slowly becomes worse over time without a cure. That is why everyone wants to know if ginkgo biloba can protect against dementia.

Unfortunately, there are still no research on these, but there are some promising results in clinical trials with extracts from the ginkgo biloba tree. In 1 study, mice were given a small amount of the infusion daily. A few of the results demonstrated that the mice didn’t have a lower risk of developing cataracts. However, more research is needed to understand whether these outcomes are legitimate or not, especially since there are still numerous doubts regarding unwanted effects.
