(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, anti inflammatory, sedative, and vasodilative effects… It has been demonstrated to excite neurochemistry, blood vessel elasticity, as well as the creation of the neurogenic neuroclicals, dopamine and noradrenalin.” Also, see my article on”Dementia, Colds, And Alzheimer’s” for more information on ginkgo biloba}
(ANUMED FROM GERD, LONG ANSWER): There is no clinical study that reveals 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 may help reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia (age-related psychological reduction ), but the advantages of the nutritional supplements are still unknown. Ginkgo seems to be associated with reduced prevalence of stroke, however there are no trials that directly associate ginkgo biloba with a heightened chance of heart attack or stroke. There is also a scarcity of information concerning the impact of ginkgo biloba on children, particularly those with learning disabilities. Most of the studies that have analyzed the effects of ginkgo biloba on memory function have been placebo-controlled or have involved very small 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 Guide of Nutritional Supplements for the Prevention and Treatment of Aging”. I made the decision to include this little tidbit concerning the ginkgo biloba extract once I found that Dr. Konstantinov, the programmer of this book, is an adviser to the Russian government. I also read this in Russia, and there have been many doctors practicing ginkgo biloba extract. I found it curious that Dr. Konstantinov includes it as a helpful health supplement since it is very controversial. The fact he admits 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 positive effects on the memory, mood, concentration, and so on, however there are also asserts that it may slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, a disease that contributes to death. If true, this would signify that benzoyl peroxide can stop the worsening of the illness which all experts agree is one of the very serious problems facing us now. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that destroys the brain cells and triggers the mental decline known as dementia, which slowly becomes worse over time without a cure. That is why everybody would like to know if ginkgo biloba can protect against dementia.
Regrettably, there are still no research on those, but there have been some promising results in clinical trials with extracts from the ginkgo biloba tree. In one study, mice were given a small quantity infusion every day. Some of the results showed that the mice did have a lesser risk of developing cataracts. But more study is required to understand whether these results are valid or not, particularly as there are still so many doubts regarding side effects.
