The herb that helps improve circulation, mental function and concentration.
Ginkgo Biloba is considered the oldest living tree. This ancient Chinese herb has been recommended for over 5,000 years. Research has shown Ginkgo Biloba to improve mental functioning, the ability to concentrate and to improve circulation of blood throughout the body. Ginkgo is the most popular herb on the market in Germany, with doctors writing more than five million Ginkgo prescriptions annually. Our 60mg Ginkgo Biloba capsules are standardized to 24% Ginkgo Flavo Glycosides and 6% Terpene Lactones.
Research has shown that this powerful antioxidant helps improve circulation of the blood throughout the body, and has the ability to improve mental functioning. Because this herb is able to squeeze through the narrowest blood vessel, it is able to increase the amount of oxygen to the heart, brain and additional parts of the body.
Ginkgo flavone glycosides, which are the active ingredients in this herb, help protect the body against damage from free
radicals and also improve mental performance and circulation.
