Scitec Ginkgo Biloba is a dietary supplement containing high-quality extract of ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba), whose therapeutic activity has been known and used for long. The product improves memory and concentration, improves cognitive abilities and facilitates the acquisition of knowledge. It can also have a positive effect on mood and well-being.
Ginkgo Biloba belongs to one of the oldest trees in the world. Extract from the leaves of the plant contains more than 50 substances that have a positive effect on human health (including quercetin, bilobalides and ginkgolides). It comes from China and has been used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. In some countries, it is a component of herbal prescription medicines.
Improving blood flow
Preparations containing ginkgo biloba help to improve blood circulation (including microcirculation in capillaries) and its flow to most tissues and organs. Thus they affect the better blood supply to the brain and prevent its hypoxia. They are also often used against the effect of cold feet because they significantly improve circulation in the lower extremities. Ginkgo may also reduce the number of atherosclerotic plaques (leading to atherosclerosis) and reduce blood pressure.
Impact on memory and cognitive skills
Ginkgo biloba is used in particular to improve concentration, memory and cognitive skills, which is why it is often used in the period of increased mental activity. It is also used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. In the elderly, it may also help to suppress memory and cognitive age-related impairment or dementia, however, according to the GEM study (Ginkgo Evaluation of Memory) of 2008, it is rather a therapy supplement to older people, and it does not replace a conventional treatment. It is worth adding that GEM was one of the largest studies on Ginkgo's influence on the elderly in which 3069 people were assessed and lasted almost 7 years. Some studies show that the administration of Ginkgo Biloba along with aspirin to individuals after acute ischemic stroke has resulted in very good results in improving cognitive assessment.
The positive impact of ginkgo on the psyche
Ginkgo Biloba is used as a herbal medicine to treat anxiety, depression and even schizophrenia. Ginkgo may reduce erectile dysfunction caused by taking antidepressants in men. This is because it increases the availability of nitric oxide, which plays a significant role in the blood flow to the penis. In addition, Gingko Biloba taken by healthy people has a beneficial effect on their mood and well-being. It may also be effective in reducing the symptoms of ADHD in children.
Protection against the oxidative effect of free radicals
Ginkgo contains flavonoids and terpenoids, which have strong antioxidant properties, thus reducing oxidative stress, usually deepened with age. They also have a protective effect on mitochondria, protecting them from damage. Taking the supplement increases the activity of the strongest antioxidants in the body – including superoxide dismutase and glutathione.
Blocking PAF activity
Ginkgo biloba extract blocks the action of PAF, or plaque activating factor. It is a phospholipid that plays a role in the immune response and inflammatory response of the body. It is synthesized by numerous cell types and occurs throughout the body, although it is not stored in any cells.
Other effects of Ginkgo Biloba supplementation
Ginkgo may improve vision in people with glaucoma and reduce dizziness and headaches. Some studies have also shown positive effects of ginkgo biloba on the alleviation of premenstrual syndrome and menopause (such as mood swings, headaches, anxiety, fatigue and muscle pain). Ginkgo can also help to reduce migraine pain as well as symptoms of altitude sickness. Supplementation with ginkgo biloba extract also causes a slight improvement in the symptoms of leucoderma.
In summary, Scitec Ginkgo Biloba is a dietary supplement, the action of which will be appreciated in particular by those who need support in improving concentration and memory (for example, students during a learning session). It is also recommended for people who have problems with blood circulation. Taking Ginkgo-based supplements has a positive effect on the mood and alleviates mood swings associated with premenstrual syndrome or menopause. Due to the strong antioxidant effect, it allows the body to defend against too fast aging.
Ginkgo Biloba is a safe preparation, although it may cause an allergic reaction in some people (e.g. in people allergic to mango skin, urushiole, resin from poison ivy or sumac). Ginkgo Biloba was the subject of about 2,500 scientific articles and it is one of the most popular medicinal plants in the world.
Ginkgo biloba thins the blood, so it should not be used by people with clotting problems or taking blood thinners such as Ibuprofen. Due to thinning properties, you should also stop taking the product about two weeks before the planned surgery.
Caution should also be taken by people suffering from diabetes or hypoglycemia, because Ginkgo may reduce blood sugar levels.
Due to the insufficient number of tests, the product is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women or children.
