Ginkgo Capsules - Useful Beyond Memory Improvement
Ginkgo Biloba is one of the most frequently used herbs in natural medicine. It is derived from a tree so old it is called “The Fossil Tree.” The herb has been used for thousands of years and by many different cultures. Throughout all of the years, the herb has been used for many different things. It is mostly known for its benefits to mental health and concentration but it can be used for much more than that. There are a lot of different reasons why someone would use Ginkgo capsules beyond the improvements to memory and concentration.
Ginkgo Biloba is successful in all of the areas it works in because it is made of many different compounds. Two of these compounds are called flavonoids and terpenoids. Flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants that have been found to protect the heart muscle, nerves, blood vessels as well as the retina from being damaged while the terpenoids improve blood flow in the body. Because of these compounds, the herb is able to provide relief from a wide variety of illnesses and health problems which leads people to add Ginkgo capsules to their supplement routine.
Because Ginkgo improves blood flow, it is frequently used as a treatment for people who have circulation issues. Ginkgo capsules can be used by people with intermittent claudication, periphery artery disease and decreased circulation because of diabetes. Intermittent claudication is pain in the legs because of decreased blood flow to that area. Some people with this disorder have a hard time walking because of the pain in their legs. A study was completed on people with this problem and found that those who took a Ginkgo Biloba supplement were able to walk 112 feet further than those that did not. When combined with an exercise regimen, the herb provides even better results.
There are other benefits that come from the increased circulation from Ginkgo Biloba. The supplement can improve many other conditions, especially those found in the ears and eyes. People sometimes take Ginkgo capsules for help with glaucoma, macular degeneration and tinnitus. Tinnitus is a ringing, hissing or other sound in the ears that is caused by nerve damage or blood vessel disorders in the head, both of which are effectively treated by Ginkgo capsules. Studies have been completed showing that Ginkgo Biloba is a possible treatment against glaucoma and macular degeneration, especially if it is taken on a regular basis.
