Start Early to Keep Your Brain Power
Known for centuries for its medicinal properties, Ginkgo is popularly used today for improving cognitive function and preventing cerebral decline. The potent antioxidant value in Ginkgo may help to prevent brain degeneration and aging, sustaining the brain’s healthy function. Its abilities to improve peripheral circulation in the arms, legs, and head bring blood to the extremities and may aid cold hands and feet.
Enerex GINKGO BILOBA contains the potent memory-boosting standardized extract and the powdered leaf of the GINKGO BILOBA plant with a minimum 24% Flavone Glycosides & 6% Terpene Lactones for maximum medicinal benefit.
When does forgetfulness become a serious health risk?
According to a 2014 study conducted by the Mayo Clinic, older forgetful adults have an 80% higher death rate than those without any form of mental decline. The study highlighted the seriousness of a failing memory. Even though the study focused on those over 70, memory decline may become noticeable in your 60s or earlier. A Ginkgo supplement is one method many people use to boost brain and vein power, taking early steps to save their memory.
Make healthy eating choices that focus on nutrients for brain power and consider supplements that may increase mental acuity. Herbal extracts including GINKGO BILOBA have been shown in many studies to have a major impact on increasing memory and preventing cognitive decline.
Does this plant remember what it has seen? The Ginkgo tree may be the world's oldest living tree species. Scientific estimates show that it has been growing on the planet for over 200 million years, and individual trees can live as long as 1000 years.
GINKGO BILOBA is one of the most studied plant medicines – in Europe and the US, Ginkgo is among the bestselling herbal supplements. Traditional Chinese medicine has used both the Ginkgo leaf and seed for thousands of years to address blood diseases and memory-building, but modern research focuses on the highly concentrated standardized GINKGO BILOBA extract that is shown to treat circulatory and brain diseases better than the non-standardized leaf.
Scientists have found two potent nutrients in Ginkgo: Flavonoids and Terpenoids. Flavonoids are antioxidants that may protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels and retina from damage. Terpenoids (such as Ginkgolides) may improve circulation and blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets. Both are thought to be good ways to boost brain health.
Recent evidence has suggested that Ginkgo:
- improves symptoms, including mental clarity, in Alzheimer’s and age-related dementia (Int J Psychiatry Clin Prac,2013) (BMC Geriatrics, 2010)
- may be effective for arterial disorders and the health of the central nervous system (American Journal of Therapeutics, 1996)
- helps maintain blood flow and the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain
- helps maintain circulation of the blood to body extremities (feet and hands) and the ear, nose, throat and eyes
- offers anti-aging protections because of its strong antioxidant properties that scavenge free radicals (free radicals can damage the walls of the arteries)
- may help the elderly perform day to day activities more easily, improving social behaviour and mood
Enerex Ginkgo Biloba contains a standardized extract (400 mg) and powdered leaf of the GINKGO BILOBA plant (62.5 mg) for maximum medicinal benefit. Ginkgo helps to maintain the circulation of blood to the brain and limbs, ensuring an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients. Its strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties also protect the arteries and vascular walls from damage.
The Enerex Advantage
With any herbal medicine, it is important to know the minimum amount required to be taken for medicinal benefit. Each capsule of Enerex GINKGO BILOBA Extract (400 mg) and Leaf Powder (62.5 mg) provides slightly more of the active compounds than what is shown to be the minimum effective dose. It is also standardized to minimum 24% Flavone Glycosides and 6% Terpene Lactones. This helps to increase the likelihood that you see and feel noticeable results — especially in mental clarity, alertness and focus, and also in the body’s circulation (such as feeling more warmth in hands and feet).
Enerex GINKGO BILOBA provides all the benefits of Ginkgo standardized extract but it also includes the whole-plant nutrients in the dried leaf powder. Together, they offer the most potent and effective combination available — one capsule a day provides more than 15 mg of the active Flavone Glycosides. When higher concentrations of flavone-glycosides are required, 2 to 4 capsules per day may be taken without negative side effects.
