For Mental Alertness, Memory and Blood Circulation
Life in the Fast Lane
Living in the “information era” can be hard on our memory. There is more information available while we seem to have less time to handle them. If occasional slip of memory is common for you and you forget things easily. Or if recalling names or where you left your belongings is getting harder and frustrating you, your brain may be deteriorating faster than you age. As we age, our body starts to make less of the chemicals your brain cells need to work. The problem worsens as we grow older. The medical usage of Ginkgo biloba dates back about 5000 years ago and has been proven in scientific studies to be beneficial for improving memory and brain function.
Ginkgo Biloba – the Brain Herb
Ginkgo biloba is one of the oldest living tree species. The extract of ginkgo leaves is used medicinally in North America, where it's one of the most popular medicinal herbs, and many other countries around the world. In traditional Chinese medicine, the seeds of the ginkgo tree are used. Ginkgo contains two main groups of active constituents namely, Ginkgo flavone glycosides (bioflavonoids) and Terpene lactones - ginkgolides and bilobalides. An effective Ginkgo supplement should contain a standardized level of 24% total flavonoids and 6% terpene lactones.
Researchers at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute found significant improvement in verbal recall among a group of people with age-associated memory impairment who took the herbal supplement ginkgo biloba for six months when compared with a group that received a placebo. There has been numerous research and studies done that establish a direct correlation between improved cognitive functions and regular Ginkgo supplements.
Ginkgo and Circulation
Do you have poor blood circulation and commonly experience cold hands and feet? Did you know that Ginkgo is also beneficial for reducing blood viscosity and enhancing blood circulation? Ginkgo cause dilation of blood vessels and micro-capillaries in the circulatory system, which increase both blood circulation and oxygen levels in the brain, as well as other critical organ tissues. It has been shown that oxygen-rich blood enhances the memory. Hence, with regular Ginkgo consumption and improved blood circulation, cold and numb limbs can be significantly reduced.

What is the difference between Gingko Active and the ordinary Gingko formula in the market?
Gingko Active is made from standardized Gingko extract that contains 24% total flavonoids and 6% terpenes lactones, which has undergone 50 times concentration to make it one of the most potent Gingko formula in the market. To further enhance the benefits, Reishi, Shiitake and Chlorella are also added to this superb formula to enable improved memory and cognitive functions as well as better blood circulation and maintenance of optimum health.
Can I take Gingko Active while on blood thinner Plavix?
It is true that caution should be taken in taking a blood thinner and Ginkgo together because Gingko has mild blood thinning effect. However, as long as you take it 2 hours or more apart from medication, the effect should be minimal. If you’re on a very high dose of blood thinner, please consult your physician to decide the potential benefits and risk of such combination.
Is Gingko Active heaty with the herbs added?
No. It is not, but you are advice to drink more water on a daily basis for better absorption of your health supplements.
I frequently take ibuprofen, can this be mixed with Ginkgo Active?
It is normally not recommended to take Ginkgo and ibuprofen together. The reason is that Ginkgo has the anti-blood clotting activity and ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) may increase bleeding. Potentially they may act on top of each other to increase the chance of bleeding. However, the real evidence is rare, if it exists, to demonstrate this actually is the case. I would suggest to avoid taking them together for a long period. But occasional uptake of ibuprofen in addition to a regular Ginkgo supplement should be ok.
