What does Ginkgo Biloba do?
Ginkgo biloba helps to support arterial circulation. Our arteries help to propel oxygenated blood to our extremities including our hands, feet and head (with the help of our microcirculation, which encompasses the capillaries), before blood returns to our heart via the other side of our circulatory system, the veins.
Ginkgo helps to strengthen and tone blood vessels, reducing spasm in the walls of the smaller arteries so that blood can be efficiently pumped to the extremities. Ginkgo improves circulation all over the body, but the improvement in circulation to the head, especially, has been well recognised.

Now, we couldn't possibly talk about memory without bringing in Ginkgo biloba. Ginkgo biloba is one of the oldest medicinal herbs and it certainly shouldn't be forgotten- excuse the pun!
We've recently had some changes to our Ginkgo range, in that our Ginkgo tablets will no longer be available. This leaves us with the original Ginkgo biloba tincture, from which the tablets were made.
Ginkgo biloba tincture is an extract from fresh Ginkgo leaves and has the benefit of faster, more effective absorption, and therefore swifter results.
