Ginkgo Biloba
 
"Ginkgo biloba is commonly used in the treatment of early-stage Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, peripheral claudication, and tinnitus of vascular origin. Multiple trials investigating the efficacy of ginkgo for treating cerebrovascular disease and dementia have been performed, and systematic reviews suggest the herb can improve the symptoms of dementia. Ginkgo is generally well tolerated, but it can increase the risk of bleeding if used in combination with warfarin, antiplatelet agents, and certain other herbal medications. Clinical issues of safety, dosing, use in the perioperative period, and pharmacology are addressed in this review. (Am Fam Physician 2003;68:923-6.

Astonishing Memory Pill (Ginkgo)
October 22, 2000 - Excerpts from Miracle Cures By Jean Carper

"The plant's reputed most active chemicals, the ginkgolides, are generally extracted from the leaves and turned into tablets of various potency. These potent ginkgolides are unique to the ginkgo tree and are not found anywhere else in nature."

"In a large, very tightly structured study, published in 1996, German investigators at the Free University, Berlin, observed the use of ginkgo on 222 outpatients at forty-one study centers around the country. The subjects, all over age fifty-five, had been diagnosed with mild to moderate Alzheimer-type dementia or dementia caused by a series of mini strokes, known medically as multi-infarcts. For six months the patients were given either a dummy pill or a daily dose of 240 milligrams of standardized ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761), taken twice a day before meals. Undeniably, those getting ginkgo did much better."
