Ginkgo is a great herbal option for the treatment of memory loss in conditions such as Alzheimer’s, ringing in the ears, dizziness, and poor circulation in the lower legs resulting in pain during walking. It stimulates the blood circulation and has a tonic effect on the brain, reducing lethargy, improving memory and giving an improved sense of well-being. It also contains ginkgolides, these are compounds that are unknown in any other plant species. Ginkgolides inhibit allergic responses and so are of use in treating disorders such as asthma. Eye disorders and senility have also responded to treatment. Ginkgo is an adaptogen herb which helps the body deal with stress.
