To be sure you're getting a standardized amount of the herb's active ingredients, purchase supplements that contain ginkgo biloba extract, or GBE, the concentrated form of the herb. GBE supplements should contain at least 24% flavone glycosides (to maximize the herb's antioxidant and anticlotting potential) and 6% terpene lactones (for improved blood flow and nerve protection).
As a brain booster and for Raynaud's disease, intermittent claudication, cataracts, and macular degeneration: Take 40 mg of GBE three times a day, or 60 mg twice a day.
For Alzheimer's disease, depression, tinnitus, dizziness, impotence, or conditions caused by insufficient blood flow to the brain: Take up to 240 mg of GBE a day.
For diabetes and heart disease prevention: Take 40 mg of GBE three times a day.
For asthma: Take 40 mg of GBE three times a day, increasing the dose up to 240 mg a day when asthma is acute.
