A.Vogel Ginkgo Extra - 60 tabs
Ginkgo is known for its vasodilator, antioxidant, neuroprotective and PAF (platelet-activating factor) inhibiting properties. Ginkgo extract promotes increased blood flow to extremities, which explains its usefulness in vascular occlusive diseases such as intermittent claudication (Raynaud’s disease). The same mechanism of action could explain its effect on memory and mental faculties. This vasodilator activity increases with age, providing an optimal action on arteriosclerosis and blood flow in elderly patients. In young patients whose arteries still have their elasticity, Ginkgo has a much smaller effect on mental faculties.
