Ginkgo biloba is an exceptional supplement formulated from one of the oldest species of tree on Earth. Now one of the world’s most widely used supplements, Ginkgo biloba boasts numerous scientifically supported benefits for the circulation and for cognitive function.
The supplement offered by SuperSmart differs from other such products in that it has a very high content of active principles: 24% ginkgo flavonglycosides and 6% terpene lactones (ginkgolides A, B et C, bilobalides). Unlike many average products on the market, this supplement is composed exclusively of natural ingredients (natural extract of Ginkgo biloba, rice flour and acacia fibre).
A truly exceptional species, Ginkgo biloba can improve daily life for all sorts of people.
Nonetheless, it is especially recommended for those at higher risk of cognitive decline and circulation problems:
Therapeutic use of Ginkgo biloba among Asian populations dates back thousands of years: it is actually one of traditional Chinese medicine’s most important plants.
Substantiating the experiences of these forebears, more than 200 studies conducted over the course of the 20th century have confirmed the effects of ginkgo biloba on circulation and brain function (1).
There are many compounds responsible for this effect, the most important of which are without doubt the flavonoids. These antioxidants are recognized for acting at all levels of the circulatory system (2). Ginkgo biloba contains a large number of them such as kaempferol, quercetol and luteolin, grouped together under the name ginkgo flavonglycosides. Once ingested, they help:
Research shows that Ginkgo biloba is able to optimise cognitive function while at the same time slowing down cerebral aging. Its high content of terpene lactones (primarily bilobalides) means it is able to protect mitochondrial barriers from oxidising elements (10-11), which helps increase energy production (fewer ‘leaks’) (12-13). It also consolidates neural circuits which ensures the preservation of our memories and the optimisation of our cognitive faculties (14).
In addition to its effect on mitochondrial function, Ginkgo biloba extract also contributes to several physiological improvements in cognitive health:
In order to deliver the benefits of Ginkgo biloba, our supplement is offered at a suggested dose of three capsules a day, to be taken with meals. While it can be adjusted in line with your needs and the advice of your therapist, this dose corresponds to the recommendations of Commission E (an independent scientific advisory board), the WHO and the IQWIG (an independent agency responsible for assessing the quality and efficiency of ingredients, amongst others). As ginkgo’s effects take a little while to be fully appreciated, it is advisable to continue supplementation for at least two to three months.
To enhance its efficacy, you can also adopt the following measures throughout the supplementation period:
An age-old witness to the history of the world and humankind, Ginkgo biloba has managed to withstand all the challenges it has faced over time because of its unique richness in micronutrients. SuperSmart has harnessed the best of this remarkable tree to produce a 100% natural supplement.
