All About Gingko

One of the oldest living tree species in the world, Gingko has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat circulatory disorders and enhance memory for thousands of years. The 2 main ingredients which are believed responsible for herbal beneficial effects are flavonoids and terpenoids. Flavonoids protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels and retina from damage by free radicals. Terpenoids improve blood circulation by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of vessels. On the other hand, ginkgo is widely researched as a “brain herb”. Researchers recently reviewed all of the high-quality published studied on ginkgo and mild memory impairment, and conclude that ginkgo was significantly effective in enhancing memory and cognitive function.

They can also lower the total cholesterol level, and reduce blood pressure and platelet aggregation. Omega-3 fatty acids can exercise a preventive effect on the development of cardiovascular disease like heart attacks, strokes, etc.

Lecithin is a major source of choline. Choline is a liptropic substance which aids in the digestion of fats. Choline helps the body to burn fat, and thereby acts as agent supporting weight loss. As choline increases fat metabolism it has been shown that it lowers blood cholesterol.
