How it works
Ginkgo increases blood flow and helps normalise circulation as it has a relaxing effect on arteries and a toning effect on veins. Ginkgo increases the fluidity of blood and by improving circulation can enhance the utilization of oxygen and glucose by the body.
Brain cells require large amounts of energy to function properly. Glucose and oxygen need to be constantly supplied to the brain cells to create energy, as the brain has very small energy reserves. Many studies have shown positive effects of ginkgo on working memory, the speed of information processing and learning.
Brahmi is an Ayurvedic medicine traditionally used to improve memory and mental capacity. Studies suggest that brahmi can improve concentration and speed of information processing as well as learning rate.
