Gingko Biloba Supplements

Posted By: Dr. Gary Bellman on August 6, 2013

The Gingko Biloba tree has very unique properties and is said to have a number of therapeutic properties and contains high levels of flavonoids and terpenoids; these are antioxidants that provide protection against oxidative cell damage from harmful free radicals.

Over recent years, ginkgo supplements have become increasingly popular and is currently among the top-selling herbal medications.  The extract is collected from the dried green leaves of the plant and is available as liquid extracts, capsules, and tablets. The dried leaves of the plant can also be used to make tea.
Ginkgo Biloba was first used for its medicinal properties in Ancient China.  The Chinese took Ginkgo for its claimed cognitive benefits and to alleviate symptoms of asthma.  They also ate ginkgo nuts because of their ‘strengthening’ properties.

This article warns consumers that due to its popularity, quality and purity of supplements should be considered before taken on as a dietary supplement.
