Ginkgo Has a Long History of Use in Treating Cognitive Issues.--
Cogntion: Designed to enhance memory and thinking, notably with people who suffer from Alzheimer or vascular dementia.
Ginkgo has a long history of use in treating memory issues and is widely used in Europe for treating dementia. In North America, it is best known as a way to potentially keep your memory sharp and several studies have shown that ginkgo does have a positive effect on memory and thinking in people, and notably with people who suffer from Alzheimer or vascular dementia. At first, doctors thought it helped because it improves blood flow to the brain. Now research suggests it may protect nerve cells that are damaged in Alzheimer disease and protect healthy nerve cells.
Ginkgo leaves contain flavonoids and terpenoids, which are both antioxidants. In your body, harmful particles called free radicals build up as you age and contribute to Alzheimer disease and dementia. Antioxidants like those found in ginkgo fight off free radicals and stop them from damaging DNA and other cells.
Medicinal Dosage: Apply 10-30 drops under the tongue or in 1oz of water, up to 3x/day, or when symptoms occur.
Caution: Ginkgo usually has few side effects. In a few cases, people have reported stomach upset, headaches, skin reactions and dizziness. Ask your doctor before taking ginkgo if you also take blood-thinning drugs or anti-depressants. Stop taking ginkgo 1 to 2 weeks before surgery or dental procedures due to the risk of bleeding. Always alert your doctor or dentist that you take ginkgo. People who have epilepsy should not take ginkgo, because it might cause seizures. Ginkgo may lower blood pressure, so taking it with blood pressure medications, especially nifedipine (Procardia), may cause blood pressure to drop too low. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should not take ginkgo. People who have diabetes should ask their doctor before taking ginkgo. Do not use while taking Ibuprofen. It is rare, but this combination may cause some bleeding in the brain.
