Ginkgo biloba is a natural remedy suitable to help improve overall cognitive function and memory. It can help with age-related memory impairment and can even help to reduce impairment in the future. Ginkgo has also been studied as providing at least some benefit for patient's with cognitive disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer's.

What else can you use ginkgo for? There is some evidence toward taking it for PMS-related symptom relief, such as breast tenderness. It may also help reduce symptoms of vertigo and other equilibrium disorders.

Visit Aisle 6 to check out our vast selection of vitamins and supplements. We are proud to provide natural supplements in addition to national vitamin brands - including plenty of options for Gingko Biloba!
