Since thousands of years, Ginkgo biloba is known for its medicinal properties. Its benefits has made it one of the top selling herbs in the USA.
This herb is still under scientific research and at present it is used for the treatment of many kinds of disorders. However, one of the most effective uses of ginkgo is the management of the intermittent claudication, cerebral insufficiency as well as Alzheimer’s/multi-infarct dementia.
There is evidence that supports that ginkgo is effective for memory enhancement. In addition to that, it has also been effective in the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, altitude sickness as well as reductions of end-organ vascular damage due to the induction of chemotherapy in the subject.
GINKGO BILOBA largely used for sexual enhancement:
The main function of the Ginkgo Biloba is that it largely helps in the dilation of the blood vessels. This in turn increases the circulation of blood to the penis or even clitoris and vagina.
In fact, improper circulation of blood leads to erectile dysfunction in men. On the other hand, when the flow of blood is less in women, the sexual sensation gets diminished thereby giving fewer responses.
Biloba is definitely a great vasodilator and works by opening up the blood vessels.
In a study conducted, it was found that more than about 70% men suffering from ED saw improvement in their ability to have erections after they took the Ginkgo.
Ginkgo is effective also for people who consume (SSRI) antidepressant like Prozac. The libido dampening side effects that are associated with these drugs get lessened.
However, ginkgo reduces the clotting property of blood. Therefore it should not be used with other blood thinning drugs. At the same time it is better to consult a doctor before taking these supplements.
