One of the world's leading herbal supplements for centuries and an excellent source two powerful nootropic ingredients; Flavonoids and Terpenoids.
A Dr. Scholey said of it "Subjects were able to sustain their concentration for longer. Normally when people have to concentrate over an extended period of time, their reaction time begins to slow – ginkgo seemed to stop that slowing and one dose actually speeded them up".
Dr. Scholey's team discovered that Ginkgo has almost immediate mental benefits; improved memory, concentration, attention resulted from taking this herb. Ginko promotes adenosine triphosphate (ATP) a universal energy molecule of the body and improves nerve cell transmission. An impressive 34 studies have been conducted since 1975 conclusively demonstrating Ginko's benefit to our mind and body.
A paper published in the Journal of Food Science, showed that it enhances memory and concentration, along with having a number of benefits; antioxidant, antiplatelet, antihypoxic, antiedemic, hemorrheologic, microcirculatory actions and as an effective treatment for Dementia.
Flavonoids are an excellent influence on the nervous system:
Protecting neurons from stress by suppressing neuroinflamation. Boosting cognitive function. Terpenoids, positively affect the entire body by their effects on our blood:Dilate blood vessels and improve plasma flow.Allow platelets to move more freely in the blood. Optimized blood flow is very important to those seeking an empowered mind because the mind absolutely relies on a constant flow of blood. Ginkgo also promotes overall healthy blood flow to tissues and organs.
Since it is such positive force influence of healthy blood flow, it is an effective treatment for many elderly conditions: memory deficiency, depression, dizziness, ringing in the ears, slow thinking and reasoning, headaches, and senile macular degeneration (a major cause of blindness).
Ginkgo Biloba comes from the massive Maidenhair Tree, a +300 million year old species of tree which has no close relatives. Its leaves have been cultivated for centuries for medicinal purposes. Researchers and scientists have extracted over 40 unique medicinal components from the leaves of the Maidenhair Tree.
It's a good idea to take Ginkgo in concert with Ginseng, Dr. Scholey's (mentioned above in this article) team discovered that test subjects experienced the greatest cognitive gains when taking:
60% Ginseng - 400MG Daily
40% Ginkgo - 360MG Daily
Gingseng is also a natural aphrodisiac, so taking this synergistic combination of herbs will lead to a more limitless mind and sex life!
Ginkgo is a very affordable over the counter supplement $7-$14 per bottle. It can also be used as cooking ingredient.
