(LONG ANSWER): Ginkgo Biloba Supplement is an herb which may help improve memory. (Detail from Google scholar:”It contains flavonoids and many compounds that have antioxidant, antiseptic, antimicrobial, sedative, and vasodilative effects… It has been shown to excite neurochemistry, blood vessel elasticity, as well as the creation of this neurogenic neuroclicals, dopamine and noradrenalin.” Additionally, see my article about”Dementia, Colds, And Alzheimer’s” for more information on ginkgo biloba}
(ANUMED FROM GERD, LONG ANSWER): There is not any clinical research that reveals ginkgo biloba helps prevent memory loss in people with moderate or mild forms of Alzheimer’s Disease. (Detail from Google scholar:” Preliminary evidence suggests that ginkgo biloba can reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia (age-related mental decline), but the advantages of the nutritional supplements are unknown. Ginkgo seems to be associated with reduced 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 scarcity of information regarding the impact of ginkgo biloba in kids, particularly those with learning disabilities. Most of the studies that have analyzed the effects of ginkgo biloba on memory functioning have been either placebo-controlled or have involved very tiny numbers of subjects. (Detail from Google scholar:”Ginkgo… does not seem to be effective for the treatment of moderate memory problems in children”.)
(ANNEMorial OF THE AGING OF SADO & KORETEC): This was originally written as a background for the book,”Euromuscular Aging: A Manual of Nutritional Supplements for the Prevention and Remedy of Aging”. I made the decision to include this little tidbit about the ginkgo biloba extract once I found that Dr. Konstantinov, the programmer of this book, is an advisor to the Russian authorities. Also, I read this in Russia, and also there were many doctors practicing ginkgo biloba extract. I found it curious that Dr. Konstantinov includes it as a very helpful wellness supplement since it’s very controversial. The simple fact he admits this and writes about it makes me wonder what exactly his motives are.
(MENTULARY FUNCTIONS OF Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract): The Chinese have used ginkgo biloba for centuries, and there is no doubt it has positive impacts on the memory, mood, concentration, and so on, but there are also asserts that it can slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, a disease that leads to death. If true, this would mean that ginkgo biloba can stop the worsening of the disease which all experts agree is among the very serious problems facing us now. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that destroys the brain cells and causes the psychological decline called dementia, which gradually becomes worse over time without a cure. This is the reason why everybody wants to know if ginkgo biloba can protect against dementia.
Regrettably, there are still no research on these, but there are some promising results in clinical trials with extracts from the ginkgo biloba tree. In one study, mice were given a small quantity extract daily. Some of the results showed that the mice did have a lesser risk of developing cataracts. But more research is needed to understand whether these results are legitimate or not, especially since there are still so many doubts regarding unwanted effects.
