In one study an improvement in short-term memory was noticed as soon as 48 hours after taking Ginkgo extract. This was confirmed in another study, where a beneficial effect was seen in mild to moderate memory loss. The greatest benefit was noticed in those over 50 years of age.¬†
Many studies have shown that people taking Ginkgo Biloba possessed improved mental acuity, were more alert, scored higher on psychometric tests and had a more positive outlook than control patients.
Improved circulation has been demonstrated in the brain and in the hands and feet. Walking without pain has been seen to improve along with Raynaud‚Äôs disease, warmth of lower limbs and clearing of ulcerous lesions. Ginkgo Biloba has been shown to improve circulation to diseased areas of the brain as well as to healthy areas.¬†
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and strokes
Ginkgo biloba has been shown to block or antagonise the platelet activating factor (PAF). A reduction in PAF activity reduces the incidence of thrombosis (clots forming inside the blood vessels) which in turn reduces the damage caused by the prevention of blood reaching vital organs by blockage of blood vessels. Ginkgo Biloba‚Äôs potential usefulness in ‚ÄòEconomy Class Syndrome‚Äô has been indicated.¬†
Sexual dysfunction due to anti-depressants
Improvement in all 4 phases of the sexual response cycle (desire, excitement (erection/lubrication), orgasm and resolution) was noted.
The human body is especially vulnerable to oxidant attack when oxygen supply to tissues is low. This is the type of condition where Ginkgo Biloba is typically used. Its anti-oxidant properties are well documented.
PAF causes an inflammatory response which is a factor in asthma. The blocking of this response has been shown to help asthma sufferers.
Tinnitus, hearing loss, dizziness and vertigo have all been shown in clinical trials to respond to Ginkgo Biloba.
Evidence is emerging that Ginkgo Biloba may help sufferers of macular degeneration.
