Ginkgo Biloba Date Written 2007
Author Joe Holmes Date Revised  

"Ginkgo Biloba Ginkgo has the unique position of having been prescribed in Chinese herbal medicine for over 5000 years. Over the past 30 years, over 300 medical studies have provided clinical evidence that Ginkgo biloba can prevent many problems throughout the body, especially those connected with circulation problems. Ginkgo is gaining recognition every year as a brain tonic (and for memory improvement) due to its positive effects on the human vascular system, especially in the brain. Ginkgo is known to improve peripheral circulation (flow to body extremities), oxygen flow, and to increase blood flow to the genitals, improving sexual function and the power of the erection. A recent scientific study showed that 78% of men with non-medically caused impotence problems (impotence not caused by prescription drugs) reported significant improvement, and totally without negative side effects. Ginkgo has shown to be valuable as nutritional support for mental alertness as well as enhanced general vitality, circulatory health, and health of the blood vessels. Note that its high antioxidant activity is also valuable as a means to fight age-related conditions. It is possible that Ginkgo may counteract some of the effects of aging, especially mental fatigue and reduced energy levels." (1)
