What Are The Benefits of Ginkgo Biloba?
Following are the benefits of using the ginkgo biloba
- Treat Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Taking ginkgo biloba leaf extract by mouth produces significant relief in breast tenderness and other symptoms associated with PMS when started during the 16th day of the menstrual cycle and continued until the 5th day of the following cycle (Yonkers and Simoni, 2018).
Taking ginkgo biloba leaf extract by mouth may serve well to improve preexisting damage to the visual field in people with normal tension glaucoma (Cybulska et al., 2012).
- Improving color vision in people with diabetes
There is adequate evidence to substantiate that taking ginkgo leaf extract by mouth for 6 months does improve color vision in people whose retinas have been damaged by diabetes. However, the beneficial effect of ginkgo biloba in both chronic schizophrenia and dementia is modest (Weinmann et al., 2010). Particularly, there is a considerably less meaningful mean effect observed in patients who are taking ginkgo. However, ginkgo biloba was equal to donepezil in two recent clinical trials, thus it provides evidence for its use in dementia, which even today can be treated only with a few pharmacological agents. Ginkgo biloba is generally used as adjunctive therapy in schizophrenia (Brondino et al., 2013).
- Helps to treat respiratory disorders
Ginkgo biloba has been reported to effective as adjunctive therapy for patients with chronic caugh, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. The extract could significantly reduce the infiltration and inflammation cells into the asthmatic airway and relieve from inflammation in asthmatic patients. Therefore, it can be used as a complement to glucocorticosteroid therapy for asthma. It also effectively treat the pulmonary interstitial fibrosis that badly affects the tissues around the air sacs of the lung interstitium (Chu et al., 2011).
- Antidiabetic properties
Ginkgo biloba extract (EGb 761) reported being an effective therapeutic drug in diabetes with respect to ischemic heart injury. It also treats the early diabetic kidney problems by regulating blood lipid, improving kidney functions and decreasing urinary albumin rate (Lim et al., 2011). This extract decrease the high blood glucose level and high lipids in patients. It has also been reported to be effective in treating and preventing obesity-induced insulin-signaling impairments in patients.
- Anti-depressant and inhibit anxiety
Ginkgo biloba extract (Egb 761) reported being effective in treating and reducing the symptoms of anxiety and adjust the anxious mood in people with mental decline. It is also effective in treating depression and dementia in elderly patients (Rojas et al., 2011).
- Neuroprotective and helps to improve cognition
It has been reported that ginkgo biloba extract could be beneficial and improve therapeutic efficacy, cognitive ability and blood flow supply in the brain with vascular cognitive impairment with no dementia suffering patients. It improves the oxygen supply and shows a protective effect on the brain. A study has shown that 240 mg per day dose of extract is effective and safe in the treatment of dementia, Alzheimer’s and short term memory loss (Yasar et al., 2013). It also treats a headache and migraine disorders (Belviranli and Okudan, 2015; Vellas et al., 2012).
