What is Ginkgo Biloba?

Ginkgo Biloba supplements are extracted from the leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba (Maidenhair) Tree. This tree is also known as the living fossil because it dates back to the existence of dinosaurs. The Maidenhair tree is native to China and the leaves have been used in Ayurveda for centuries as a brain tonic.

The Benefits of Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract Containing Glycosides

Many plants store chemicals known as inactive glycosides. These inactive glycosides are activated through enzyme hydrolysis, the process of binding the inactive molecule with a sugar or sugar group. Glycosides are the active compounds in these leaves that provide its unique benefits. We choose this extract to make sure each dosage contains these active components so maximum results can be achieved.

Ginkgo Biloba Benefits

Nootropic Benefits

Even those individuals who are not suffering from a cognitive impairment can experience memory improvement and improved processing abilities from Ginkgo Biloba supplementation. [1,2]

Gingko Biloba doesn’t only improve memory; it also improves overall cognitive function. This extract shows promise in improving focus and attention span. [3,4]

Mood

This supplement is effective for mood regulation. Ginkgo extract regulates cortisol levels which is the hormone that is released during times of stress. Cortisol reduction allows for a more relaxed state when dealing with stressful situations. [5]

Sleep Better with Ginkgo Biloba

Lack of sleep can cause negative effects on mood, cognition, and overall well-being. Taking ginkgo extract before bed may improve REM sleep. One study showed Ginkgo Biloba improves non-REM sleep and reduced the number of awakenings, this means ginkgo supplementation improves overall sleep quality. [6]

Ginkgo Biloba Extract Dosage

If you want constant but mild benefits, the recommended ginkgo biloba dosage is 40-125mg one to three times per day.
