Ginkgo has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to promote health. And now modern science is confirming ginkgo’s benefits for postmenopausal women.
Reduces Cardiovascular Disease Risk
Ginko contains phytoestrogens, which help restore hormonal balance, and heart-protective terpenoids. Terpenoids have antioxidant properties and can help improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing stickiness of platelets (blood cells that help the blood to clot). Improved blood circulation to hands and feet also relieves chilliness before hot flashes.
Ginko can improve memory, especially in menopausal women and the elderly. In one study, postmenopausal women experienced improved attention, memory, and mental flexibility after consuming gingkgo for one week. Studies also indicate that ginkgo is helpful for fatigue, depression and visual or cognitive difficulties.
The ginkgo leaf contains flavonoids that have antioxidant properties, which help fight free radical damage. In fact, researchers believe that gingko has more antioxidant activity than antioxidants such as beta-carotene and vitamin C and E. Its active compounds include ginkgolides and bilobalide, both of which can aid the immune system in fighting disease.
Research shows that gingko extract has the potential to help prevent osteoporosis. Gingko is also valued for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
