Ginkgo Biloba Herbal Tincture

Ginkgo is one of the oldest plants used in herbal and natural medicine, as well as in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Ginkgo Biloba benefits are now commonly used today for memory loss and degenerative diseases of the brain and central nervous system. Ginkgo is known to increase the circulation of blood and oxygen to all parts of the body.  The herb is thought to be an effective overall tonic that aids in the treatment of a variety of conditions, ranging from ringing in the ears to impotence. Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Seasonal Disorder (SAD), and depression may be reduced with regular consumption of Ginkgo Biloba extracts. Its benefits also include some eye related issues like macular degeneration, retinopathy and glaucoma. The Ginkgo tincture may also help to provide relief for those with headache, sinusitis, vertigo, Reynaud's disease and the shaking and loss of muscle coordination typical in Parkinson's disease.

Ginkgo Biloba has been used for increasing circulation to the scalp and brain and for peripheral circulation of the blood. And almost any condition that can be helped with increased blood flow may benefit from the regular use of Ginkgo leaf. Scientists continue to study this herb for possible prevention and treatment for stroke patients. Ginkgo prevents blood clots from developing, and by increasing blood flow to the brain, may stop strokes from occurring. It is also believed that it inhibits free-radical damage of brain cells after a stroke. It has also been reported to reduce blood viscosity. The ability to increase vascular dilation may help to reduce retinal damage due to macular degeneration and may also reverse deafness caused by reduced blood flow.  

Ginkgo is used to improve blood flow to the brain, which also helps to prevent strokes, cerebral arteriosclerosis and other diseases of peripheral circulation. Evidence demonstrates Ginkgo's efficacy in the management of "cerebral insufficiency" caused by impaired blood flow to the brain, which is thought to be secondary to arteriosclerotic disease, and characterized by impaired concentration, confusion, depression, fatigue, headache and dizziness.
Ginkgo may reduce the risk of heart attack. In the same way improved blood flow helps other vital areas of the body, Ginkgo may prevent the blood clots that cause them. The herb is said to block the platelet activation factor (PAF) that triggers the internal blood clots, which lead to heart attacks. Also, one of Ginkgo's flavone glycosides (ginkgolide) has been used to treat severely irregular heartbeat. Taken orally, Ginkgo is known to have the properties that can help in improvement in symptoms of clogged arteries, like painful legs. This herb in conjunction with regular exercise and walking, is something that is good for everyone.
Raynaud's disease is believed to be caused by blood vessels that overreact to the cold and then spasm, reducing blood flow and depriving the extremities oxygen. Ginkgo may help this condition by widening the small blood vessels. It is said to be effective in reducing short-term memory loss. Ginkgo leaf tincture increases blood flow to the brain and has been said to improve the transmission of nerve signals. Varying degrees of vascular insufficiency is sometimes the cause of mood changes or mood swings. Ginkgo users have found that the herb improves mood and has also been used effectively for depression, especially in the elderly. 
It is said to both protect and promote memory and mental function, even with Alzheimer's disease which is marked by a major loss of nerve cells in the brain. Since doctors have found that antioxidants help to slow the destruction of nerves, it is not a far stretch to think that Ginkgo's antioxidant properties may help in this area. Studies have been made with geriatric patients that showed regular use of the leaf for at least eight weeks, measurably improves senile dementia. It has been shown to be beneficial for ADD, improvement of sociability, mood, anxiety and nervous tension.
Ginkgo's antioxidant effects in the central nervous system may also help to relieve certain symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. Several East Coast (USA) university medical schools studied the effects of Ginkgo Biloba, and it appears that the patients using Ginkgo showed significantly more improvement in areas of depression, fatigue, attention span, memory, symptom severity and functionality. These effects have also been used effectively for the complications of Parkinson's disease. The lack of dopamine is believed to be the reason there is progressive stiffness, shaking and loss of muscle coordination. Doctor's theorise that along with other treatments, Ginkgo biloba extract may help symptoms by increasing the brain's blood flow and there by allow more of the depleted dopamine to be circulated to the areas that need it most. The research also showed that no adverse events or side effects were reported.
It may also prevent free radical damage in the kidneys and liver and is sometimes used in Chinese medicine to treat kidney stones, kidney infections and other urinary tract problems. Studies show that the toxic liver damage of acetaminophen, also commonly known as Tylenol®, is reduced through the antioxidant effects of Ginkgo. A new study in the Journal of Medicinal Food evaluates Ginkgo's role in protecting the body from the toxic effects of uranium, present in the environment, on the principal targets of the liver and kidneys. It demonstrated that uranium toxicity induces oxidative damage to these organs. Supplements of Ginkgo Biloba may serve as a "toxicity-limiting agent" to reduce the environmental effects of chemical and radioactive agents, or may provide a new approach to understanding the mechanism of chemical toxicity.
Ginkgo helps promote good sexual health. Male impotence (erectile dysfunction) has been helped by the use of Ginkgo Biloba. Studies have shown that Ginkgo improved blood flow to the penis in men who had narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to that area and were unable to achieve erections. And for women who suffered sexual difficulties when taking antidepressants have shown improvement after 6 months of use, claiming that it enhanced orgasm and excitement.
Scientific research has shown Ginkgo Biloba to be helpful for those with poor leg circulation by enabling them to walk for longer distances without pain. The increased circulation also brings more oxygen and nutrients to the scalp which helps to prevent hair loss, or balding. These nutrients are basically essential vitamins A and E along with others. When a hair follicle gets the right amount of oxygen and nutrients it will automatically start hair repair and promote hair growth.
There are tremendous efforts being done by researchers to find out what benefits Ginkgo biloba extracts can give patients that may be dealing with skin disease. One such major study has been undertaken to find out if it will benefit Vitiligo patients. This study showed that the herb has the ability to stop the progression of this skin disorder. Ginkgo is also said to fight melanoma by improving the delivery of oxygen to tissues throughout the body. Oxygenated blood creates a hostile environment for hormone-related malignancy.
Ginkgo biloba leaf has been shown to help with weight loss. With the processed synthetic foods that are available these days are rich in unhealthy fats and toxins. With this type of diet, the body requires detoxification and needs better circulation for toxin removal. Ginkgo is known to increase blood circulation and the nutrients get better absorbed into the system. It makes the gastrointestinal muscles healthier and which is helpful for colon cleansing.
As an astringent, antifungal and antibacterial, it helps to ward off diphtheria, dysentery, hemorrhoids and toxic shock, and treats incontinence and excessive urination. It is also useful in treating vaginal infection. Ginkgo Biloba has also been shown to be beneficial for the respiratory tract. This herb is said to be helpful in cases of bronchial constriction, asthma, chesty coughs (with thick phlegm) and tuberculosis.
