Gingko biloba is well known for its positive effect on memory enhancement. The extract from the gingko biloba leaf improves blood flow to the brain and extremities, helping to improve memory and mental sharpness. Ginkgo has a demonstrated ability to boost cognitive function, and may be helpful in the early stages of cognitive decline and dementia.
Ginkgo is also a powerful antioxidant, scavenging free radicals that cause inflammation and damage cells. The brain contains high levels of unsaturated fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, which are vulnerable to oxidative damage. Ginkgo can help protect these vital fatty acids from oxidation from free radical damage.
HerbalFactors Ginkgo Biloba Phytosome from Natural Factors is standardized to guarantee a minimum of 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones, the key active compounds in ginkgo. Gingko flavone glycosides act as antioxidants and inhibit platelet aggregation, thereby improving circulation. Terpene lactones also improve circulation by inhibiting platelet activating factor (PAF) to reduce inflammation and protect nerve cells.
The patented phytosome process offers superior bioavailability to unlock the cognitive and circulatory benefits of ginkgo biloba. Phytosomes are herbal substances bound with phosphatidylcholine molecules, creating a highly bioavailable compound that is both water- and fat-soluble to enhance absorption.
