What Ginkgo Biloba Is

Gingko treeGingko Biloba is a large, picturesque tree grown in cities the world over for its shade and bold landscaping effect. Ginkgo is derived from the Japanese word ginkyo, meaning "silver apricot", referring to the fruit, which is eaten in Japan. Biloba means "two-lobed", referring to the split-in-the-middle character of the tree’s large, fan-shaped leaves. Gingko originated in China and is one of the world’s oldest tree species, having lived on Earth for approximately 200 million years. Gingko trees can live for as long as 1,000 years and grow to a height of 125 feet.

Medicinal use of ginkgo can be traced back thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine. Modern pharmacological research into the active constituents of ginkgo leaves began in the late 1950s, spearheaded by the Dr. Wilmar Schwabe phytopharmaceutical company of Karlsruhe, Germany. Twenty years of research resulted in a concentrated, standardized extract of ginkgo biloba leaves (GBE), now found in the European market in both oral and intravenous forms. GBE is the most frequently prescribed herbal remedy in Europe, with an impressive track record of more than 100 clinical studies, over half of which were double-blind, placebo-controlled.




How GBE Works

The most active constituents of GBE are ginkgo flavonglycosides and terpene lactones. Their action includes:

  • Protection of small blood vessels against spasm
  • Protection of small blood vessels against loss of tone
  • Relaxing effect on the blood vessel walls
  • Protection of capillaries from leaking blood into tissues
  • Protection of circulating blood from pooling
  • Protection of circulating blood from clotting
  • Inactivation of free radicals
  • Improvement of circulation to the brain
  • Improvement of circulation to the extremities
  • Reduction of edema and lesions in the retina
  • Improvement of disequilibrium
  • Improvement in memory and learning capacity
  • Protection of the nervous system

In addition to the above well-documented effects of GBE, it may have a positive effect on longevity according to a study performed by Jerrold Winter, professor of pharmacology and toxicology in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Buffalo, New York. "At a certain point in our analysis, we realized that the rats who were receiving ginkgo biloba were living substantially longer than those who were not receiving the extract. Than finding leads us to speculate that in addition to its purported beneficial effects on brain function, which our study supports, the extract may also have a positive effect on longevity."




What Ginkgo Biloba Is Used For

For the past fifteen years in Europe, GBE has been prescribed widely to treat age-related organic brain impairment, problems with vision and hearing, cardiovascular problems, and peripheral circulatory disorders. Specifically, GBE is considered effective for:

  • Tinnitus
  • Hearing loss
  • Macular degeneration
  • Alzheimer’s (early stages)
  • Age-related memory loss
  • Impotence due to arterial insufficiency
  • Poor circulation
  • Recovery from stroke
  • Depression in the elderly
  • Prevention of blood clotting

Side effects are uncommon with GBE. Mild gastrointestinal upset has been observed in less than 1% of users in clinical studies. Some users with cerebrovascular insufficiency may experience a mild headache during the first one or two days of use. There are no known interactions with commonly prescribed drugs, although concurrent use with anticoagulants should be closely monitored. German research indicates that GBE is safe to take during pregnancy and lactation.




GBE, Technically Speaking

-from the American Botanical Council pamphlet on ginkgo biloba-

"The leaves are a rich complex of chemical structures. Active constituents include bioflavonoids, such as the flavonoid glycosides kaempferol, quercetin, and isorhamnetine; flavones; and organic acids. Novel dieterpene lactones, unique to ginkgo are currently the focus of intensive pharmacological and clinical research. These include the ginkgolides (A, B, C, and M) and bilobalide, a sesquiterpene . . .

The ginkgolides, bitter diterpene principles of the leaves and roots, were first isolated in 1932 by Furukawa. The chemical structure of ginkgolides was elucidated and named by Japanese researchers in 1966. They are extremely complex molecules unique to gingko . . .

The various ginkgolides have different degrees of potency. They are very selective antagonists of platelet aggregation induced by platelet-activating-factor (PAF), an inflammatory autacoid. Autacoids, generally synthesized in local tissue sites, mediate local types of tissue response, such as pain perception, blood coagulation, and smooth muscle contraction. PAF is involved in various inflammatory, cardiovascular, and respiratory disorders. The ginkgolides modulate various enzyme systems and ion pumps . . . Ginkgolides counteract the effects of PAF in human blood platelets, both in-vitro and ex-vivo."
