Product Notes:

As we age, many of us start to experience deficits in our mental functioning, such as keeping up our concentration or short-term memory in carrying out tasks. When provided in sufficient concentrations, the active ingredients in the leaves from the Ginkgo biloba or Maidenhair tree can help compensate for minor deficits in brain function by improving circulation, discouraging clot formation, reinforcing capillary walls, and protecting nerve cells from harm when they're deprived of oxygen. They also appear to have an antioxidant effect, to protect brain tissue from the damage caused by free radicals.

60 mg Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract (G. biloba L.) (50:1) (Standardized to Contain 24% Ginkgoflavonglycosides & 6%Terpene Lactones)

Warnings:

Do not use if you have high blood pressure or if you are taking health products that affect blood coagulation (e.g. blood thinners, clotting factor replacements, acetylsalicylic acid, ibuprofen, fish oils, vitamin E) as this may increase the risk of spontaneous bleeding.
