    What Is Ginkgo Biloba?
    The leaves of the common ginkgo biloba tree. The standardized extract (GBE) requires a 50:1 ratio of leaves to extract, and extraction of GBE from the leaves is a very long process. The resulting extract contains ginkgo flavonglycosides (bioflavonoids) and terpene lactones as its active parts.

    For What Is Ginkgo Biloba Used?
    Early stages of Alzheimer's disease
    Memory loss associated with aging
    Erectile dysfunction (impotence) due to arterial insufficiency
    Poor circulation
    Long-term therapy in stroke victims
    Tinnitus
    Hearing loss
    Depression in the elderly
    High flavonoid content is effective in treating asthma
    How Does Ginkgo Biloba Work?
    Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE) increases blood flow to the brain by inhibiting blood platelet aggregation and by regulating blood vessel elasticity; it has been shown to improve blood flow through both major blood vessels and capillaries. Ginkgo is also a powerful antioxidant. Ginkgo biloba extract has two major groups of components, ginkgo flavonglycosides and terpene lactones. Its efficacy depends on their proper balance and a standardized extraction method has been developed to ensure that balance. Basically, these two constituents or groups of constituents are responsible for ginkgo biloba's two main properties: the ability to inhibit blood platelet aggregation (which allows for greater flow of blood to the brain and extremities) and its strong antioxidant properties (which exert a protective influence over the brain and CNS).

    Ginkgo Biloba's Use in Alzheimer's Disease
    GBE is beneficial in the early treatment of Alzheimer's disease. It has been proven effective in stopping the advancement of Alzheimer's disease, in improving the mental function of elderly people having suffered several "mini-strokes", and if the patient's dementia is caused by lack of blood flow to the brain, it can reverse the problem.

    Recommended Ginkgo Biloba Quality
    You will want to use the same substance proven beneficial in the various studies2,3 performed: standardized extract containing 24 percent ginkgo flavonglycosides and 6 percent terpene lactones -- 120mg twice daily. Allow 12 weeks of use before determining its efficacy.

    Possible Ginkgo Biloba Side Effects
    Side effects are rare with use of the standardized extract. Mild gastrointestinal upset occurs in less than 1 percent of patients in clinical studies. Some patients with poor blood flow to the brain (i.e., cerebrovascular insufficiency) may experience a mild, transient headache for the first one or two days of use. There are no known interactions with commonly prescribed drugs. The current German Commission E monograph lists no contraindications to the use of ginkgo during pregnancy or lactation.1Why Buy Our Ginkgo Biloba?
    The quality of ginkgo products on the market vary dramatically. Our Ginkgo Biloba contains fresh, potent, standardized Ginkgo extract plus 300mg of Ginkgo leaf per capsule, which gives you an extra 6mg Terpenes per capsule plus all the natural compounds present in the whole leaf. Our ginkgo tests (in the laboratory) to 24 percent ginkgo flavonglycosides and almost 7 percent terpene lactones! Remember, if you want the benefits that the studies have shown, you need to use the same quality ginkgo that the studies have used. In fact, our Ginkgo was chosen for a study currently underway at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. If a supplier does not list their concentration of ginkgo flavonglycosides or terpene lactones, don't buy it because there's no way of knowing what you are getting.

    In fact most companies never test their ginkgo for its terpene lactone concentration. Most ginkgo products on the market (over 90% of them) are either ginkgo extract standardized to 24% ginkgo flavonglycosides which is then sprayed on alfalfa leaves (because they are cheap), or it is simply unstandardized ginkgo leaves, which means you will have no idea how much of the active compounds are in each capsule! Our ginkgo is the highest quality available at any price, and we offer it at a great price--most companies sell low-quality ginkgo for more! (And, they don't even know why their ginkgo is low-quality. Just ask them questions, and you'll see!)

    I think it's great. I also know of many people who swear by ginkgo biloba. It seems to help with memory and providing some energy. It is also supposed to help prevent cognitive decline if taken as you age. Ginkgo also has many antioxidants, so it's a good source of those as well.

    Nice stab at trying to sell it.


    Link changed.


    By the way, I think that I just read somewhere that testing is showing that it does nothing to help...

    I saw a porno recently with a chick with a prosthetic third boob. Apparently, it's a fetish.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.
