The Benefits of Ginkgo Biloba

A native of China, Ginkgo Biloba is used for multiple purposes. It is a staple in Chinese medicine used for thousands of years. Today, ginkgo extract can be found in various supplements and offers several health benefits. 

Improves Circulation and Heart Health

Ginkgo may increase blood flow in specific areas of the body. A study conducted with patients who had coronary heart disease discovered an increase in blood levels of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is responsible for dilating blood vessels.

A Sense of Well Being

A few small studies have indicated that Ginkgo may enhance the feeling of wellbeing and help with attention span in older adults helping with focus and clarity.

Can Help Fight Inflammation

Whether you have a cold, get an injury, or your immune system perceives a foreign substance, you have inflammation. It’s the body’s natural response. Too much inflammation can cause damage to the body’s tissues.

Research shows that ginkgo can reduce the markers of inflammation. Some health conditions that are associated with inflammation are:

● Heart Disease

● Stroke

● Arthritis

● Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Dementia 

Ginkgo may help reduce cognitive decline in people with dementia. It may also help mild Alzheimer’s patients with functionality. Researchers believe this is due to increased blood flow and vascular dilation.

Antioxidant 

Ginkgo Biloba is high in antioxidants. Antioxidants are vital because they help fight the damage to cells and body tissues due to free radicals. Free radicals are part of the normal function of metabolism.

You can garner these potent benefits by taking a ginkgo supplement. Pills are one option. There is another option that is not only tasty but has other health-enhancing ingredients as well! 

Natural Remedy Ginseng, Ginkgo & Brahmi Tonic is an excellent herbal remedy for enhancing brain function. Ginseng helps with brain function and complements Ginkgo, while Brahmi helps enhance memory. 

Our premium, nutraceutical non-alcoholic tonic has antioxidants as well as brain-enhancing properties.
