(LONG ANSWER): Ginkgo Biloba Supplement is an herb which may help improve memory. (Detail from Google scholar:”It contains flavonoids and several compounds that have antioxidant, antiseptic, antimicrobial, sedative, and vasodilative effects… it’s been demonstrated to excite neurochemistry, blood vessel elasticity, and the creation of this neurogenic neuroclicals, dopamine and noradrenalin.” Additionally, see my article about”Dementia, Colds, And Alzheimer’s” for more information on ginkgo biloba}

(ANUMED FROM GERD, LONG ANSWER): There is not any clinical research that shows ginkgo biloba helps prevent memory loss in people with moderate or mild forms of Alzheimer’s Disease. (Detail from Google scholar:” Preliminary evidence suggests that ginkgo biloba may reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia (age-related psychological reduction ), but the benefits of the supplements are unknown. Ginkgo appears to be associated with reduced prevalence of stroke, however there are no trials that directly link ginkgo biloba with a heightened chance of heart attack or stroke. There is also a scarcity of information concerning the effect of ginkgo biloba in children, especially those with learning disabilities. The majority of the studies that have examined the effects of ginkgo biloba on memory functioning have been placebo-controlled or have involved very tiny numbers of subjects. (Detail from Google scholar:”Ginkgo… does not seem to work for the treatment of mild memory problems in children”.)

(ANNEMorial OF THE AGING OF SADO & KORETEC): This was originally written as a background for the book,”Euromuscular Aging: A Manual of Nutritional Supplements for the Prevention and Remedy of Aging”. I decided to include this little tidbit about the ginkgo biloba extract when I saw that Dr. Konstantinov, the developer of this publication, is an advisor to the Russian authorities. Also, I read this in Russia, and also there were many physicians practicing ginkgo biloba extract. I found it curious that Dr. Konstantinov contains it as a very helpful health supplement since it is extremely controversial. The simple fact that he acknowledges 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 is no doubt that it has favorable impacts on the memory, mood, concentration, etc, but there are also asserts that it may slow the development of Alzheimer’s, a disease that leads to death. If true, this might signify that ginkgo biloba can prevent the worsening of the disease which all experts agree is one of the most serious problems facing us today. Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that destroys the brain cells and triggers the mental decline called dementia, which slowly becomes worse over time without a cure. This is the reason why everyone would like to know if ginkgo biloba can protect against dementia.

Regrettably, there are still no studies on these, but there are some promising results in clinical trials with extracts from the ginkgo biloba tree. In 1 study, mice were given a small amount of the extract daily. Some of the results showed that the mice didn’t have a lesser chance of developing cataracts. However, more study is needed to understand whether these results are legitimate or not, particularly as there are still so many uncertainties regarding unwanted effects.
