Ginkgo Biloba

Overview

Ginkgo biloba or memory tree is often considered an anti-aging agent. But gingko biloba is much more than that.



Mechanism

The active ingredients of Gingko biloba improve blood flow in the brain and promote thinking ability, memory and concentration. Gingko biloba is rich in bioactive substances (including flavone glycosides, catechins, lactones, carotenoids) with an anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effect on brain cells.


Benefits

  • Improve blood flow in the brain
  • Promotes thinking ability, memory and concentration
