Life Extension Super Ginkgo Extract 28/7, 120mg, 100 caps


For nearly 2,800 years, the Chinese have used extracts from the Ginkgo biloba tree to treat a variety of conditions.

Ginkgo helps promote healthy brain, metabolic, and cardiovascular function (i.e., blood, blood vessels, circulation).

Ginkgo contains numerous antioxidants such as proanthocyanidins and flavonoids that counteract free radical activity.

Flavonoids are also known to strengthen capillaries, which can promote healthy blood flow to the brain to help maintain cognitive health.

Ginkgo may:

  • Help maintain normal circulation by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of blood platelets.

  • Help maintain the normal function and tone of blood vessels, and maintain a normal blood flow.

  • Maintain already normal oxygen and glucose metabolism in the brain.

  • Maintain normal coagulation of blood.

  • Help slow the aging process in the brain.

  • Ginkgo biloba extract is reputed as a neuroprotective antioxidant agent.

It is known to protect the energy-producing mito-chondria within the cells, thus enhancing oxygen utilization and cellular respiration.

In a study to determine whether ginkgo extract could prevent age-associated cellular changes, the brain and liver mitochondria of old mice fed ginkgo extract in their drinking water was compared to those of young and old control mice.

Mitochondria from the mice given ginkgo exhibited significantly less genetic damage, peroxide generation, and oxidation of the crucial antioxidant glutathione than non-supplemented mice.

In addition, mitochondria from old mice given the ginkgo extract resembled those of young mice much more closely, being similar in size and morphology.

The study concluded that standardized ginkgo extract prevents age-related decline in mitochondrial structure and function by protecting mitochondria from oxidative damage.

The Japanese premium-quality bio-chemical extract in Super Ginkgo has been concentrated and dual-standardized to ensure the highest quality, consistency and biological activity.
