Ginko biloba


Botanical name: Ginkgo Biloba Habitat: Asia, Europe

Plant parts used: leaves Active ingredients and nutrients: flavonoids, terpene compounds

Therapeutic properties: The active components of the plant are FLAVONGLYCOSIDES. These molecules act as ANTIOXIDANTS, often also called scavengers, that is scavengers, since they eliminate free radicals from the body. The action of the plant is also due to the TERPENIC LATTONS, which act synergistically with the other principles. Ginkgo therefore has properties both on the circulatory system and on the central nervous system. On the circulatory it acts in the peripheral circulation (limbs) and on the cerebral circulatory insufficiency. It also thins the blood, prevents the formation of plaques, decreases platelet aggregation, gives tone to the capillaries and venules: all this allows a better venous return. On the nervous system it has been shown that Ginkgo protects neurons: it increases their survival and supports their regeneration. Studies have shown that, given to patients with Azlheimer, it improves their cognitive functions
