Whilst Ginkgo biloba, sometimes just referred to as 'ginkgo', is best known for its effect in helping maintain peripheral circulation to the extremities of the body such as the legs and hands, there are a number of other uses for this herb including helping maintain memory in the short-term. It is also a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It is the flavonglycosides that are the yardstick for potency, with a content of 24% flavonglycosides being the standardised figure, and the level used in clinical studies. Each tablet contains a concentrated extract, standardised at 28.8mg (24%) flavonglycosides. What's more, you'll find our label quotes another group of compounds, 'terpenes' the most important of which are the ginkgolides and bilobalides. Whilst not analysed in the recent analysis, these have important properties with regard to circulation and ours contain 7.2mg per tablet. How to use: 1 tablet daily, just after a meal. Caution: Do not take if pregnant or breast feeding.
