Can't remember like you used to? Maybe Ginkgo Biloba could help. Ginkgo Biloba is scientifically proven to improve blood and oxygen flow to the brain and extremities, making it a valuable botanical to enhance memory function, mental sharpness and other cognitive functions. An ideal supplement for seniors and younger persons with active lifestyles.
Some of ginkgo's actions result from several of its constituents working together, and other actions relate directly to specific constituents. Ginkgo extract seems to affect cognitive deficiency in two ways; it stimulates populations of nerve cells that are still functional, and it protects nerve cells from pathologic influences. Ginkgo flavonoid constituents, which are mainly rutin, are efficient free-radical scavengers. Rutin is known to improve capillary fragility and permeability. Ginkgo contains ginkgolide constituents that competitively inhibit platelet-activating factor (PAF) binding at the membrane receptor.
This action might be responsible for beneficial effects in asthma, bronchospasm, hypersensitivity reactions, and circulatory issues. Ginkgolides antagonize PAF-induced decreases in myocardial contractility and coronary blood flow, and avoid cyclosporin-induced nephrotoxicity. Ginkgo contains ginkgolides A and B. These exert an anti-stress and neuroprotective effect by decreasing corticosteroid synthesis. Ginkgo leaf extract increases cerebral blood flow. There is some evidence that ginkgo might improve cerebral metabolism and protect against ischemia. Ginkgo leaf extract decreases blood viscosity, can help improve microcirculatory blood flow, protects neural and retinal tissue from hypoxic or oxidative injury, help stimulates choline uptake and helps reduce age-related decline in muscarinic receptors in the hippocampus. There is some suggestion that ginkgo leaf extract might exert a monoamine oxidase inhibiting effect. There is also some suggestion that it shows some activity against Pneumocystis carinii, arrests fibrosis in damaged hepatocytes, and inhibits nitric oxide production in inflammation. Ginkgo can improve vascular blood flow in the corpus cavernosum by relaxing vascular smooth muscle, which supports healthy performance.

I like that fact that the TerraVita Ginkgo powder has no additives at all: no gelatin, no yeast, no corn, no soy, no nothing - just straight Ginkgo. This is important to me because I have some food allergies. One thing I dislike with most herbal supplements is that they only come in capsules or tablets, which means additives of one sort or another, even if it is just gelatin for the capsule. Powder is awesome! No capsules to swallow, no additives to digest. Just mix a teaspoon of powder in with my morning juice, and I am done. Thank you so much for this & quot;innovation& quot;. I do not understand why other companies do not sell powder.
