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 shown promise in slowing 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.
