How it works
Standardised Ginkgo biloba extract has demonstrated effects to improve arterial, venous and capillary circulation, assist cognitive functions and alleviate stress. Oriental Botanicals® Ginkgo Excel™ contains standardised flavonglycosides that possess powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties, which help protect blood vessels and brain cells (neurons) from oxidative damage; therefore promoting healthy ageing.
Ginkgo biloba is one of the world’s oldest living tree species, and for this reason is commonly called the “living fossil”. The Ginkgo tree has exceptional resistance to disease and insects, with some living specimens believed to be more than 1,000 years old.
As we age, impaired circulation to the brain (called cerebral vascular insufficiency) contributes to a deterioration in memory and concentration, as well as absentmindedness, confusion, tiredness, mood changes, ringing in the ears and dizziness.
Likewise, age-related circulatory impairment to the eyes contributes to the development of macular degeneration, while peripheral vascular insufficiency results in a deterioration in walking tolerance and cold hands and feet.
