If you find it hard to concentrate, or often forget things, then this powerful brain enhancer may be what you need. It is commonly used for its cognitive-enhancing effects today as it was thousands of years ago.
This brain-boosting leaf comes from one of the oldest living tree species in the world! The ancient Chinese used it for brain disorders, circulatory issues and more. It soon spread to Japan and Korea. Its health benefits were not recognised in the West until the 20th Century.
Now there has been plenty of research to confirm its cognitive boosting effects. It appears to work by improving blood circulation in the brain. It opens up blood vessels and makes blood less sticky. This property is also why it is used to improve general circulation.
Research has confirmed that Ginkgo is packed with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Inflammation and oxidative stress (cell damage from toxins and pollutants) cause many of the world’s most serious health issues, so we always recommend the regular use of herbs such as Ginkgo.
Its cognitive-enhancing properties have been backed up by plenty of research in areas such as dementia, Alzheimer and tinnitus. It has also been shown to improve memory and attention in healthy individuals.
