One of the most important parts of our health is maintaining or improving our memory. Losing our memory is extremely hard on a person and anyone who loves that person. It often puts so much strain and stress on a family. There are natural remedies we can use to help combat against memory loss. Ginkgo Biloba has been used time and time again to help with memory. There are also other things you can use in conjunction with Ginkgo Biloba such as Natural Factors PS, Purica’s Lion’s Mane and coconut oil has proved to even reverse Alzheimer’s Disease.
Enhances cognitive function: This herb is extracted from the fan shaped leaves of the ancient ginkgo biloba tree, a species that has existed in China since the days of the dinosaurs! So if you find yourself feeling ancient (staring at a cupboard for 5 minutes without a clue as to what you intended to fetch), this old tree may have some benefits to aid your memory. Because ginkgo improves blood flow to the brain, more oxygen and blood sugar (glucose) is delivered to this area. This relieves cerebral insufficiency symptoms like: dizziness, poor concentration, memory loss, disorientation, forgetfulness and impaired judgment. Ginkgo may also lessen symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease as well as depression and anxiety in some older people. Composed of flavonoids, this herb has antioxidant properties and protects against free radicals. Due to the hi-potency 150 mg formula, you need to take only one per day, unlike other types which should be taken 2-3 times daily.
Improves health of eyes and ears: Due to increased circulation of the blood to the nerve-rich fibres of the eyes and ears, ginkgo helps treat macular degeneration and ringing in the ears (tinnitus). Like aspirin, ginkgo helps reduce stickiness of the blood, thus lowering the risk of blood clots.
Reduces coldness in the extremities and relieves leg cramps: By regulating the tone and elasticity of blood vessels from large arteries to tiny capillaries, ginkgo also increases blood flow to the arms and legs. This helps combat Raynaud’s disease (coldness in extremities) and intermittent claudication (leg cramps).
