Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention With Ginkgo Biloba

Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention With Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo biloba has been shown to help slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. According to the AMA Health Care Trends 2008 under “Complementary and alternative medicine,” ginkgo biloba reduces the formation of specific brain abnormalities and paralysis in animal models and may slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in humans.

In an earlier study published in 1997 in the journal of the American Medical Association: 202 people with Alzheimer's were given either a placebo or ginkgo extract of 120 mg a day. A year after the start of the research, the ginkgo group retained more mental function. Further studies have corroborated this finding.

  1. Hi Sandy, Thanks for the great post. Since Alzheimer's is a disease that runs in my family, I'm always interested in information that relates to it---especially if it's natural.
    Best, Linda
