As mental cognitive functions in adults tend to decline with age, absentmindedness, poor concentration and mental loss is often associated with age-related degeneration. Restricted circulation to extremities such as hands and feet is also a common complaint.
The ginkgo or maidenhair tree is one of the world's oldest trees and is a good example of a herbal medicine that must be carefully extracted and concentrated in order to obtain the desired therapeutic benefit. It is one of the most extensive, clinically-studied herbs investigating disorders of the elderly - over 400 scientific studies have been conducted and all claims are supported by many well-conducted clinical trials.
Ginkgo biloba is an ideal tonic for the elderly as it can help them to think clearly. Clinical trials have shown an improvement in mental cognition, if taken regularly. Ginkgo helps improve short-term memory loss and brain function such as concentration, learning, mental alertness and behaviour. It reduces the risk of mental loss associated with ageing and aids in the management of tinnitus and dizziness. It temporarily alleviates pain when walking (due to poor blood circulation).
