Ginkgo Biloba the Brain Enhancing Herb

Ginkgo Biloba is a very widely used herb that has been in use for thousands of years by the Chinese. Ginkgo Biloba comes from an endangered ornamental Chinese Tree believed to be extinct in the wild. This incredible tree is called a ‘living fossil’, has no modern relatives and produces an extract with amazing qualities.

The extract from it’s fan shaped leaves is a very popular herbal product. The Flavone Glycosides present in the extract have shown to have an effect on the body’s vascular system. Research has shown that Ginkgo Biloba reduces the tendency for dangerous clots or thromboses to form in the veins and arteries, aiding in the recovery from heart attacks. It is also valuable as a brain enhancing herb as it increases blood flow to the brain and aids in the recovery and prevention of strokes.

Research suggests that Ginkgo Biloba may help:

  • Move blood and oxygen to the brain to enhance memory and mental alertness.
  • Help in the elasticity and strength in the blood vessels and capillaries
  • Relieve headache, vertigo, and ringing in the ears
  • Strengthen the cardiovascular system, reducing tendency for clots
  • Scavenge free-radicals that can damage cells and accelerate aging.

Centrophenoxine AKA (Lucidril) or (Meclophenoxate) is an anti-aging drug widely used to increase brain energy, since it stimulates the chemical activity of the brain. Much like other nootropics (Piracetam, Aniracetam, and Oxiracetam) Centrophenoxine promotes cognitive brain activity. In particular, uptake of the sugar glucose (which is essential for energy production and keeps the mind sharp) is increased.

Oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production also increase significantly when centrophenoxine is taken regularly, providing further evidence of its effectiveness. Feel more aware and more alive!

Oxiracetam (4-hydroxy-2-oxo-1-pyrrolidinacetamide) is a potent nootropic supplement of the racetam family. It is a fast acting water soluble analog of the nootropic Piracetam. It is similar to, but far stronger than piracetam and aniracetam.

Researchers wrote that oxiracetam is a “vigilance-enhancing compound with some effects on spontaneous memory”, and that “in comparison with piracetam, oxiracetam exhibits a greater improvement in memory factor”. During another study, they found that oxiracetam had better therapeutic results than piracetam on both a psychosomatic and neurologic symptoms. Oxiracetam also seemed to decease platelet aggregation.

Oxiracetam, like other nootropics, is non-toxic. It has been shown safe in doses up to 2400mg.
