Product description for Guernsey-based supplement manufacturer Healthspan
What is High Strength Ginkgo Biloba?
It’s an extract taken from the dried leaves of one of the oldest trees on earth. Nicknamed the ‘living fossil’ due to the fact that it’s survived unchanged for a mind-boggling 200 million years (yes, you read that right!), the ginkgo biloba tree from China has been used traditionally for a wide range of purposes for centuries.
The extract provides a rich source of flavone glycosides, compounds that are thought to have antioxidant properties and reduce capillary fragility. Some research has suggested that it may have a beneficial effect on blood flow, especially to the brain. Although more studies are needed before the EU can approve these health claims.
Why is ours better?
We use a standardised extraction process, which guarantees that each tablet contains 120mg extract – equivalent to 6,000mg ginkgo biloba leaves. What’s more, this high quality extract contains less than 1ppm (parts per million) of ginkgolic acid.
We also add iodine, which is involved in cognitive function, as well as vitamin B5, known as pantothenic acid, which contributes to mental performance and helps combat tiredness and fatigue.
