Ginkgo biloba has been used medicinally for thousands of years, dating back to ancient China. The earliest recorded use of ginkgo biloba was in 2800 B.C. by the Chinese emperor Shen Nung, who documented the plant’s medical uses in his book The Divine Farmer’s Herb-Root Classic. Since then, ginkgo biloba has been used to treat a variety of ailments, including asthma, bronchitis, ringing in the ears, and memory problems. In more recent years, ginkgo biloba has been studied for its potential to improve cognitive function and circulation. Read on to learn more about this fascinating supplement and its many benefits.

How Does Ginkgo Biloba Work?

The active ingredients in ginkgo biloba are thought to be flavonoids and terpenoids, which are antioxidants that can help protect cells from damage. Ginkgo biloba is thought to work by thinning the blood and improving circulation to the brain. This increased blood flow may help to protect nerve cells from damage and improve cognitive function. Additionally, ginkgo biloba is thought to increase levels of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in memory and learning.

What Are the Benefits of Ginkgo Biloba?

Due to its effects on blood flow and neurotransmitters, ginkgo biloba is commonly taken to improve cognitive function and memory, especially in older adults. Some research suggests that ginkgo biloba may indeed help to improve memory in healthy adults as well as those with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, ginkgo biloba is often taken to treat other circulatory problems such as Raynaud’s disease or intermittent claudication (pain caused by decreased blood flow to the legs).

Are There Any Side Effects?

Ginkgo biloba is generally safe when taken as directed. The most common side effects include headaches and stomach upset. If you experience any severe side effects, stop taking ginkgo biloba and consult your doctor immediately. As with any supplement, it’s important to speak with your healthcare provider before taking gingko biloba or giving it to a child.

In Summary:

Gingko biloba is a popular supplement with a long history of use for many different health conditions. Today, it is most commonly taken to improve cognitive function and circulation in the brain and legs respectively. While generally safe when taken as directed, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider before taking this supplement, especially if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have a bleeding disorder or other medical condition.
