Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
 
Freshly milled organic Ginkgo leaf is combined with a standardized Ginkgo extract containing 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones.

Ginkgo biloba is the world's oldest living species of tree, dating back more than 200 million years. Individual trees live as long as 1,000 years. It is now commonly planted in the cities of Europe, Japan, Southeast Asia, and the United States because of its hardiness and resistance to infection and pollution.

Although the medicinal use of the seed originates from China nearly 5,000 years ago, it was not until the 20th century that the leaves of the tree were used in European herbal medicine. Many of Ginkgo's current uses originate from research and clinical observations during the 1950's in Europe. In France and Germany, it is one of the most popular prescribed medicines.

In the United States, Ginkgo is one of the top-selling herbal supplements. This popularity can be attributed to large number of successful clinical studies that have been published. The Federal Government's Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) research program is currently funding several studies featuring this herb.

These capsules supply the scientifically validated dosage of extract (60 mg extracted to supply 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones). This is supported by the addition of pure unadulterated Ginkgo leaf. The whole leaf has hundreds of compounds and flavonoids related to the flavone glycosides, which have yet to be studied.
