With 60 mg of standardized ginkgo leaf extract + 340 mg of raw ginkgo herb, Organika's brain boosting herb offers a broad spectrum of active flavoneglycosides & terpene lactones. Ginkgo is a popular herb, used for a variety of conditions including, memory, brain function, circulation, and more!
Ginkgo is used to increase blood flow to the whole body but especially to the brain and extremities. The active components are flavone glycosides, potent antioxidant molecules. Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage.
Ginkgo is commonly purchased as encapsulated herb or tincture. Ginkgo products should be standardized as an assurance of the amount of active compounds they contain. Gingko can be found in combination products for memory, eye health, cardiovascular health and sexual functioning. These trees are widely cultivated for their leaves and seeds so there is no concern with the ecological impact of gingko use. Interestingly they are also planted in cities because they can tolerate the harsh urban environment.
