Description

More Information

Lamberts Ginkgo 6000mg 180 Tablets are one of the highest strength ginkgo products available in the UK. Each tablet contains 120mg extract, equivalent to 6000mg of dried leaf. Lamberts have also made the tablets time release so that the ginkgo is released gradually over a period of approximately 2 hours. This will help prevent any minor side effects, such as mild, short-term headaches.

Ginkgo may have beneficial effects on both the circulatory and the central nervous systems. It increases blood flow to the arms and legs and the brain by regulating the tone and elasticity of blood vessels, from the largest arteries to the tiniest capillaries. It also acts like aspirin by helping to reduce the 'stickiness' of the blood, thereby lowering the risk of blood clots.

  • 180 tablets.
  • Contains 120mg ginkgo extract in each tablet.
  • Time release formulation.
  • Beneficial effects on both the circulatory and the central nervous systems.
  • Helps to lower the risk of blood clots.
  • Increases blood flow.
  • May moderately improve cognition in dementia patients.
  • Suitable for vegetarians.

Clinical trials of ginkgo have shown it to be moderately effective in improving cognition in dementia patients but not preventing the onset of Alzheimer's disease in people without dementia. Most of the studies on Ginkgo biloba have been carried out with a standardised extract called GBE, containing 24% glycosides, and this is the material used in Lamberts Ginkgo. This high purity extract ensures low levels of an unwanted natural compound called ginkgolic acid. No other UK brand uses this high grade of Ginkgo extract.

Summary

More Information

Ginkgo is a popular herbal medicine, derived from one of the oldest species of tree on earth and is widely marketed as a 'memory booster'. Ginkgo biloba does help combat age-related memory loss, but whether it is a 'smart pill' meant for everyone remains to be seen. 

The medicinal form of the herb is extracted from the fan-shaped leaves of the ancient ginkgo biloba tree, a species that has survived in China for more than 200 million years. A concentrated form of the herb, known as ginkgo biloba extract (GBE), is used to make the supplement. GBE is obtained by drying and milling the leaves and then extracting the active ingredients in a mixture of acetone and water.

The fact that ginkgo aids blood flow to the brain -  thereby increasing its oxygen supply - is particularly important to elderly people whose arteries may have narrowed with cholesterol build-up or other conditions. Diminished blood flow has been linked to Alzheimer's disease and memory loss, as well as to anxiety, headaches, depression, confusion, tinnitus and dizziness. All may be helped by ginkgo.
