 Nature's Herbs Gingko Power

Description

Nature's Herbs Gingko Power features certified potency gingko biloba leaf extract from Japan. Gingko biloba is derived from the ginkgo tree, one of the oldest living tree species, existing for more than 150 million years. Gingko biloba is commonly used to support brain and memory function and cognitive performance.

Gingko contains potent bioflavonoid antioxidants (glycosides) and terpene lactones (ginkgolides). The glycosides neutralize harmful free radicals (toxic molecules that cause damage to cells) and prevent platelet aggregation (stickiness) in the blood. These beneficial effects can help prevent degenerative diseases such as heart disease and support brain and eye health. The ginkgolides help increase circulation to the brain and throughout the body.

Research suggests that gingko supports brain and memory function and can help treat age-related cognitive decline in the elderly. One double-blind, placebo-controlled study, published in Current Medical Research and Opinion, found that ginkgo biloba extract had a beneficial effect on cognitive function in elderly patients with memory impairment (dementia).


Pros

Nature's Herbs Gingko Power features 40 mg of certified potency ginkgo biloba leaf 50:1 extract and 345 mg of ginkgo biloba leaf. Gingko Power's premium ginkgo leaves are hand-harvested under the best growing conditions from the finest cultivated farms in Japan.

My husband tried this product and according to him it clears his mind after feeling sleepy and when he woke up, he feels fresh and he suddenly wants to do his work and he finished it at the end of the day. It boost concentration, and his mind is focused. When he said that, I was curious and I tried it too because I was reviewing for my comprehensive exam at the graduate school. It really helps me focus, and I like the feeling of having concentration with my reading because I was finishing my task fast and I want to do more. I thank this product because I passed the exam because I was able to retain the things that I studied.

I have been taking Gingko biloba for some time now my wife recommended I try it. After about of month taking the Gingko biloba pills for about a month I noticed a difference my blood pressure was normal, and it seemed my memory improved a bit. This particular brand of pills is what I've been taking note it is part of my daily routine 1 pill 3 times a day.
