Both the nuts from the ginkgo biloba tree and its leaves have been used
Two main components cause Ginkgo biloba’s medicinal effects: ginkgo flavone glycosides and terpene lactones. The flavone is the main reason for Ginkgo biloba’s antioxidant qualities, and its effectiveness in treating the brain and central nervous system.1
Terpene lactone is associated with increased circulation and protection of nerve cells.2
In addition, the ginkgolides appear to inhibit substances which cause platelets to clump,3 leading to nerve damage, inflammation, and poor blood flow in the nervous system. Ginkolides also protect the central nervous system when it is temporarily deprived of oxygen, as with stroke.4
Useful in treatment of: Alzheimer’s Disease, asthma, arteriosclerosis, depression, macular degeneration, Parkinson’s Disease, retinopathy.

Contraindications: Patients taking anti-coagulants or undergoing aspirin treatment should consult with a medical professional before taking Ginkgo Biloba.
