Info: 100 Veg. Capsules
Ginkgo can help improve cognitive function and memory, especially the short-term memory and concentration needed to carry out more complex tasks. This vegetarian formula by Protocol for Life Balance also contains synergistic Gotu Kola and Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng).
Ginkgo biloba is extracted from the leaves of the Maidenhair tree. In sufficient doses, it can not only compensate for cognitive deficits but also protect brain tissue by improving the circulation and reinforcing the capillary walls in the brain and reducing the chances of its nerve cells being harmed when they're deprived of oxygen, and it also appears to have an antioxidant function, to protect brain tissue from free radical damage.
Each capsule contains:
120 mg Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract (G. biloba L.) (50:1) (Standardized to Contain 24% Ginkgo flavonglycosides & 6% Terpene Lactones)
150 mg Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) (Leaf)
125 mg Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) (Root)
