Ginkgo for a sharp and clear mind
Ginkgo originally comes from China, where it is revered as a sacred tree and is a symbol of power, strength and hope. Ginkgo trees are very resilient and can live to be over 1000 years old. In the West, we have been using Ginkgo as a remedy for memory impairment since the 1960s.
Ginkgo extract is made from the dried leaves of the Ginkgo biloba tree. The main active ingredients in Ginkgo biloba are flavonoids and terpenes, which are secondary plant substances. Flavonoids are known to protect blood vessels and terpenes have a protective effect on mitochondria, the "power plants" of cells.
What can Ginkgo do for you?
Ginkgo improves the ability of the blood to flow, thus promoting blood circulation, especially through the capillaries (smallest blood vessels). This in turn increases the level of oxygen and nutrients in tissues, which particularly benefits the grey cells of the brain.
Ginkgo also stimulates the brain's receptors for the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and serotonin, so stimuli are communicated more rapidly to the nerves.
Ginkgo's ability to improve circulation enhances memory, concentration and the ability to learn, and makes our brains more agile and resilient. Ginkgo is often used for the prevention of brain disorders and may delay mental decline in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer's.
The eyes and ears also benefit from improved circulation, so Ginkgo is frequently used to treat tinnitus (a whistling in the ears)and degenerating eyesight. It can also help to relieve headaches and dizziness.
In addition, Ginkgo is a powerful antioxidant, protecting the cells from free radicals which counteract the deterioration of nerve cells and improve the performance of existing cells.
What to look for when buying Ginkgo capsules
The leaves of the Ginkgo tree naturally contain about 1.8% flavonoids. To produce a high-quality Ginkgo extract, a special process is required to concentrate the crucial active ingredients - flavonglycosides and terpenes.
The Ginkgo extract in Ginkgo Royal is standardised to contain 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpenes. Products that contain only powdered ginkgo leaves have a much lower content of these crucial ingredients, which is reflected in the effect.
Consequently, when buying Ginkgo biloba capsules, check how much of these two substances they contain - the higher the amounts, the more effective the product will be.
