Ginkgo Biloba has been known as the Mind Herb for centuries. This herb contains powerful antioxidants that help to fight free radicals and blood thinners to improve blood circulation and overall brain function. This herb is popular in Europe and often prescribed in parenteral and intravenous forms. There have been over 400 pharmacological and clinical studies done on Ginkgo making it the most well researched botanical in the world. The active ingredients in Ginkgo are terpene lactones, ginkgo flavone glycosides (A,B,C) and bilobalide. These molecules promote neuroprotection and improved blood circulation by inhibition of platelet-activating factor. Ginko also contains quercetin, kaempferol and isorhamnetin which are responsible for the antioxidant properties and free radical elimination.
