For nearly 2800 years, the Chinese have used extracts from the Ginkgo biloba tree to treat a variety of conditions. Ginkgo helps
promote healthy brain, metabolic, and cardiovascular function (i.e., blood, blood vessels, circulation).150-170 Ginkgo contains
numerous antioxidants such as proanthocyanidins and flavonoids that counteract free radical activity. Flavonoids are also known to
strengthen capillaries, which can promote healthy blood flow to the brain to help maintain cognitive health.153,158,167

Ginkgo biloba extract is reputed as a neuroprotective antioxidant agent.169 It is known to protect the energy-producing
mitochondria within the cells, thus enhancing oxygen utilization and cellular respiration.
In a study to determine whether ginkgo extract could prevent age-associated cellular changes, the brain and liver mitochondria of
old mice fed ginkgo extract in their drinking water was compared to those of young and old control mice. Mitochondria from the
rats given ginkgo exhibited significantly less genetic damage, peroxide generation, and oxidation of the crucial antioxidant
glutathione than non-supplemented rats. In addition, mitochondria from old rats given the ginkgo extract resembled those of young
rats much more closely, being similar in size and morphology. The study concluded that standardized ginkgo extract prevents
age-related decline in mitochondrial structure and function by protecting mitochondria from oxidative damage.170
