Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking
medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, or seizures. Do not use
if you are taking health products that affect blood coagulation (e.g.
blood thinners, clotting factor replacements, acetylsalicylic acid,
ibuprofen, fish oils, vitamin E) as this may increase the risk of
Do not take if you are if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or are

is one of the most well-known and most-sold herbs around the world. Its
use in traditional folk medicine goes back to “Chen Houng Pen T’sao” – a
form of pharmacopoeia created in ancient China around the year 2800 BC.
Ginkgo is the sole survivor of a tree species, dating back over 200
million years ago that has become legendary for its durability and its
ability to extract nutrients from the soil.
Ginkgo is monographed in the modern Chinese Pharmacopoeia as well as in the United States and Germany. In fact, Ginkgo biloba
extract has been proven in Germany (in accordance with the Commission E
monographs) to reduce the symptoms of cerebral insufficiency. These
symptoms include memory loss associated with conditions such as
Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia, among others. Ginkgo is also
used to cope with the symptoms of tinnitus, vertigo and of intermittent
claudication (inadequate blood flow to the lower limbs). Studies also
show that Ginkgo biloba enhances the integrity of the capillary walls and protects nerve cells of brain damage associated with a lack of oxygen.
contains a variety of compounds, but the two main active ingredients,
namely terpenoid lactones and flavonoids are responsible for the central
effects of increased cerebral blood flow and protection against
1. Terpenoid Lactones
substances impart a strong, bitter flavor. Ginkgo Biloba 50:1 contains a
minimum of 6% terpene lactones, considered the highest percent
2. Flavonoids (Antioxidant Potential)
a. Ginkgoflavonglycosides (also called heterosides). Ginkgo flavonoids
are up to 10 times more potent than citrus bioflavonoids. Ginkgo Biloba
50:1 is standardized for 24% flavonoids. Some of the flavonoids found in
Ginkgo biloba include quercetin, kaempferol and isorhamnetin.
Proanthocyanidins, which are ionized (negatively charged) flavonoids,
are also found in pine bark, grape skin and grape seeds.
c. Other flavonoid groups found in minor quantities are coumarin esters and catechins.
d. The most potent and important compounds in Ginkgo biloba
are the ginkgolides A and B. Ginkgo Biloba 50:1 is rich in ginkgolides,
containing a minimum of 0.8% — the highest range available.
Studies by Casato, Doly, Fink, and others strongly suggest that ginkgolide B is the most important component of Ginkgo biloba.
Ginkgolide B has been isolated and studied as compound BN 52021 and
shown to have biological effects. In fact, editor Pierre Braquet, Ph.D’s
review text on the effects of ginkgo is entitled “Ginkgolides and
ginkgo flavonoids”. According to Braquet, the world’s leading authority
on Ginkgo biloba, the extracts are 90% absorbed.
enhances cerebral microcirculation in the brain, keeping needed energy
and oxygen flowing to the brain. Many controlled trials have
demonstrated the ability of Ginkgo to support cognitive function.
Good for Both Young and Old
• A recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial found that 4 weeks of treatment with Ginkgo biloba
extract in younger patients led to significantly superior measures of
anxiety disorder or adjustment disorder with anxious mood compared to
the placebo group.
• A meta-analysis of nine studies concluded that Ginkgo biloba extracts are beneficial in dementia.
• A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter study tested the effects of Ginkgo biloba
extracts for 52 weeks in Alzheimer patients with mild to severe
dementia. In 202 patients, the extract appeared to be capable of
stabilizing and improving the cognitive performance and the social
functioning of demented patients. It has also been shown to delay the
onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
• A randomized, placebo-controlled,
double-blind study of 60 Alzheimer’s patients compared Ginkgo biloba
extract to the drug donepezil. After a 24 week supplementation period, Ginkgo biloba
was found to be comparable to donepezil in its improvements compared to
the placebo group, as assessed by the Clinical Global Impression score.
Ginkgo biloba is also useful for those whose mental faculties have not yet begun to decline.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study
gave Ginkgo biloba extracts to 60 healthy volunteers between 50 and 65
years of age. After 4 weeks, self-estimated mental health and quality of
life were significantly better in the Ginkgo group compared to placebo.
• A placebo-controlled, double-blind, crossover study found that acute administration of Ginkgo biloba (120-360 mg) produced a sustained improvement in attention in healthy young adults compared to placebo.
Cancer fighting potential
is beneficial in fighting cancer. In vitro studies have found that it
is effective against various forms of human cancer cells, including
ovarian cancer, breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. A clinical
trial found that Ginkgo biloba decreased the risk of ovarian
cancer. These effects are partly due to the anti-proliferative effects
of Ginkgo extracts, along with quercetin and ginkgolide A and B. The
latter appear to be able to block the cell cycle, thereby preventing
cancer cells from continuing to divide.
Ginkgo biloba has overall been found to be safe and well tolerated, although it does have several potential drug interactions to be aware of.
Ginkgo biloba is mostly known for its memory-enhancing effects. The most potent and important compounds in Ginkgo biloba are the ginkgolides A and B.
