Skip to comments.Is there a superior brand or preparation of Gingko Biloba product to recommend to seasoned citizens?

My "seasoned citizen" mom is concerned that she might be having memory issues, and feels that she's slow on the uptake on some things during conversations.
In the past I've tried to recommend ginkgo to her, but she's resistant to try new things... but now, it seems she's willing to give gingko a shot.
I understand some preparations are better than others, and I we sure the natural healing community on FR would have some recommends...
My mom works here, she's not a member, but I'm going to send her a link to this thread, she'll read what you advise...~*Thank You*~...T.
Just noticed I’ve spelled ginkgo as both ginkgo and gingko... maybe I’m the one who needs to take ginkgo/gingko :^(
Beat him with your stick, mom...lol
I've been taking Ginko Viagra. It's for people who can't remember a f___ing thing.
LOts of “C” and “D3”, combined with a good multi-vitamin high in zinc would be as good if not better than Gingko use. But why not try both? Wash it all down with cranapple juice.
Eating a low carbohydrate diet helps in getting rid of brain cobwebs.
Get her out and about. A new project or hobby helps perk up the brain.
Read a study recently that ginko biloba was not helpful....wish I’d have saved the article.
I’d be researching coconut oil/dementia/alzheimers. Have read of some impressive results from using it.
Ginkgold by Nature’s Way.
Be aware that Gingko Biloba may block the action of the hypertension drug Lotrel (amlodipine benazepril). Wait several hours after taking the Lotrel before taking the gingko.
I accidentally took a triple dose of gingko once, on the morning of a training session at work. I became acutely depressed and overwhelmed by feelings of sadness and had to leave the class. I leveled out after a few hours and felt okay, but I will never chance that again— it was awful.
