Time : 2023-06-26 Hits : 18

Ginkgo Biloba Extract (GBE) refers to the effective substances extracted from Ginkgo biloba, which contains total flavonoids of Ginkgo biloba, ginkgolides and other substances.

Ginkgo biloba extract can expand blood vessels, protect vascular endothelial tissue, regulate blood lipids, protect low-density lipoproteins, inhibit PAF (platelet activating factor), inhibit thrombosis, and scavenge free radicals.

Main ingredients

Ginkgo biloba has a wide range of biological activities and contains a variety of chemical components, mainly including flavonoids, terpenes, polysaccharides, phenols, organic acids, alkaloids, amino acids, steroidal compounds, trace elements, etc. Among them, vitamin C, vitamin E, carotene, calcium, phosphorus, boron, selenium and other mineral elements are also very rich, but the most important medicinal components are flavonoids and terpenes. Flavonoids and terpenoids have various effects such as blood vessel expansion and anti-oxidation.

Ginkgo Biloba Extract - Excellent Skin Care

In terms of whitening: When the body is not in good condition, our endocrine is easily disordered and out of balance. At this time, there are too many oxygen free radicals in the body, but the superoxide dismutase (SOD) is insufficient, resulting in excessive oxygen free radicals and dermis. Cells produce oxidative reactions, forming a large amount of lipofuscin (lipid peroxide), resulting in chloasma or pregnancy spots. The flavonoids contained in Ginkgo biloba can hinder the formation and deposition of pigments in the dermis, so as to achieve the effect of whitening the skin and preventing pigmented plaques. In addition to flavonoids, trace elements such as manganese and molybdenum in ginkgo leaves can also scavenge oxygen free radicals and inhibit the growth of melanin.

In terms of wrinkle removal: It takes about 3 months for the human body's skin to completely renew, but why do we still have annoying small fine lines on our faces? The reason is that the newborn cells formed in the dermis have been oxidized by too many free radicals before reaching the skin surface, and they are already aging cells when they reach the epidermis. The flavonoid glycosides and flavonols in Ginkgo biloba are free radical scavengers, which can protect dermal cells, improve blood circulation, and prevent cells from being oxidized to produce wrinkles.

Effect and Function

1. Promote circulation
Ginkgo biloba P.E. can promote the circulation of the brain and body limbs at the same time. One of the main health benefits of Ginkgo biloba extract Ginkgo biloba P.E. is to inhibit a substance called platelet activating factor (PAF), a mediator released from cells that causes platelets to aggregate (pile together). High levels of PAF can lead to nerve cell damage, decreased central nervous system blood flow, inflammation, and bronchoconstriction. Much like free radicals, high PAF levels also contribute to aging. Ginkgolides and bilobalides protect nerve cells in the central nervous system from damage during periods of ischemia (lack of oxygen to tissues in the body). This feature may be useful as an adjunct therapy for patients suffering from stroke. In addition to inhibiting platelet adhesion, Ginkgo extract regulates blood vessel tone and elasticity. In other words, it makes blood circulation more efficient. This circulatory efficiency boost affects both the large blood vessels (arteries) and smaller blood vessels (capillaries) in the circulatory system. the

2. Antioxidant effect
Ginkgo biloba extract Ginkgo biloba P.E. may exert antioxidant properties in the brain, eye retina, and cardiovascular system. Its antioxidant effects in the brain and central nervous system may help prevent age-related decline in brain function. The antioxidant function of Ginkgo biloba extract in the brain is of particular interest. The brain and central nervous system are particularly vulnerable to free radical attack. Brain damage caused by free radicals is widely believed to be a contributing factor in many of the diseases that accompany aging, including Alzheimer's disease. the

3. Anti-aging function
Ginkgo biloba P.E. enhances blood flow to the brain and has an excellent tonic effect on the nervous system. Hundreds of scientific studies involving tens of thousands of patients have confirmed the efficacy of ginkgo biloba extract for a variety of problems including insufficient blood flow to the brain and mental decline in elderly patients. Ginkgo works well for many possible symptoms of aging such as: Anxiety and depression Memory impairment Difficulty concentrating Decreased alertness Intellectual decline Vertigo Headaches
Tinnitus (ringing in the ears), macular degeneration (the most common cause of blindness in adults), inner ear disturbance (which can lead to partial deafness), poor circulation to the ends, impotence due to poor blood flow to the penis

4. Dementia, Alzheimer's disease and memory improvement
Scientists reviewed all published high-quality studies on ginkgo and mild memory impairment and concluded that ginkgo was significantly more effective than placebo in improving memory and sensory function. Ginkgo is widely used in Europe to treat dementia. Ginkgo is thought to help prevent or treat these brain disorders because of its ability to increase blood flow to the brain and its antioxidant function. Despite the scientific flaws of many clinical trials, the evidence that ginkgo may increase thinking, learning and memory in people with Alzheimer's disease remains promising. the

5. Premenstrual discomfort
A double-blind controlled placebo study evaluating the benefit of ginkgo biloba extract Ginkgo biloba P.E. in women with symptoms of premenstrual dysphoria. The trial included 143 women aged 18-45 years and followed them for two menstrual cycles. Each woman received either Ginkgo biloba P.E. (mg twice daily) or placebo on day 16 of the first cycle, and treatment continued until day 5 of the next cycle, and in that cycle Start again on day 16. The results are impressive. Compared with placebo, ginkgo significantly reduced the main symptoms of premenstrual dysphoria, especially breast pain and mood swings. the

6. Sexual dysfunction
Although there is no double-blind trial basis for this function, case reports and open studies suggest that ginkgo can improve sexual dysfunction caused by polozac and other antidepressants. the

7. Eye problems
Flavonoids in ginkgo may stop or relieve certain retinopathy. Damage to the retina has many possible causes, including diabetes and macular degeneration. Macular degeneration (commonly known as age-related macular degeneration or ARMD) is a progressive degenerative eye disease that tends to occur in older adults. It is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. Research suggests that ginkgo may help preserve vision in ARMD patients.

Dosage: The mainstream opinion is that when used to treat terminal microcirculation problems including vertigo, tinnitus and intermittent claudication, a daily dose of 120-160ml is very suitable. Higher doses (approximately 240 mg/day) may be used to treat dementia, mild depression and improve cognitive performance. For best results, the daily dosage is generally divided into 2-3 servings. The criteria for validating the use of the extract is to contain at least 24% Ginkgo flavonoid glycosides and 6% terpene lactones - because this is the level at which the extract has shown substantial efficacy in every clinical trial. the

8. Treatment of high blood pressure
Ginkgo biloba extract can simultaneously reduce the adverse effects of blood cholesterol, triacylglycerol, and very low-density lipoprotein on the human body, reduce blood lipids, improve microcirculation, and inhibit blood coagulation. These have significant therapeutic effects on hypertension. the

9. Treatment of diabetes
At present, Ginkgo biloba extract has been used in medicine instead of insulin for diabetics. It shows that Ginkgo biloba has the function of insulin to regulate blood sugar. Many glucose tolerance tests have proved that Ginkgo biloba extract can regulate blood sugar and improve insulin resistance. , thereby reducing insulin antibodies and enhancing insulin sensitivity are obvious.
