Gingko Biloba is referred to as the "smart herb", because it improves brain function by improving circulation and increasing blood flow and oxygen supply to the brain. Its effects in improving circulation also contribute to its use for impotency and peripheral vascular insufficiency. A standardized extract is good source of the phytochemicals that act as powerful antioxidants and inhibit blood platelet clumping. Ginkgo supports depression, headaches, memory loss and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). It is also used for Alzheimer's, asthma, eczema, heart and kidney disorders. This herb contains ginkgolides and heterosides.

What are the common side effects, and contraindications?
ZooScape Moderator - May 11, 2006, 10:53
The only known contraindication is that Ginkgo Biloba may increase the effects of MAO-inhibitors. Consult a medical professional before using, if you are taking any anti-depressants. The only known side effect is that if your digestive system is sensitive, the highly purified extract can cause mild gastrointestinal irritation.

A typical dosage for Ginkgo Biloba, standardized to 24% ginkgoflavones, is 40 mg to 60 mg three times a day. This product page is for the 40 mg version manufactured by TerraVita and I do apologize for any confusion with your thinking that it was 450 mg.
As Alzheimer's disease is a very serious disorder, it is essential that anyone taking an interest in ginkgo supplements talk to their doctor or healthcare practitioner; they will be able to identify any contraindications, drug interactions, potential complications, and they can prescribe a correct initial dosage with correct monitoring of the approach.
Take 1-2 capsules, 3 times per day.
