Ginkgo_The Anti-Aging Brain Herb

(Ginkgo biloba)

Ginkgo can somewhat improve the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia. A study completed in 2002 showed that ginkgo helped improve Alzheimer's patients' cognitive and social performance, regardless of how severe their condition was.

Patients with very mild or mild impairment improved on ginkgo, and the herb appeared to slow down the progression of symptoms among people who were severely impaired. Ginkgo's powerful antioxidant activity is thought to prevent damage to the blood vessels serving the brain. When it comes to maintaining the memory you have, ginkgo is a smart choice.

But can ginkgo sharpen a healthy mind? There's been some hot debate on this. Two studies on humans showed that using ginkgo did make a difference; a later study reported that it did not. Finally, another study done with healthy subjects showed that a single dose improved the quality of memory. In my opinion, the evidence suggests that ginkgo is a good herb to try for boosting brainpower.

How to buy and use: It's widely available. Choose a product containing 80 mg ginkgo biloba extract standardized to 24 percent ginkgo flavone glycosides. Though some people notice improvement after a few weeks, plan on using ginkgo for at least 4 months before judging whether or not it's working for you.

Caution: Do not use in conjunction with blood thinners because it may magnify their effects. Discontinue 2 weeks before surgery and until surgical wounds have completely healed.
