Ginkgo biloba extract is a type of product that uses Ginkgo biloba L.Leaves as raw materials and extracts active ingredients enriched with appropriate solvents.Various formulations made from GBE are widely used in fields such as pharmaceuticals, health products, food additives, functional beverages, cosmetics,etc.
1.Memory enhancement, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.
2.Anxiety:Ginkgo biloba may help alleviate anxiety symptoms.
3.It has the effect of improving memory and cognitive function of patients.
4.Protective effects of the brain and its central nervous system.
(1).The effect on the brain is targeted at rats with cerebral ischemia-reperfusion. After administration of EGB, it can be observed that the area of cerebral infarction is significantly reduced, the volume of brain edema is reduced, and the survival rate of rats is significantly increased.Research has found that ginkgolides may protect the brain by reducing the expression of apoptotic proteins, reducing the number of free radicals, and reducing the expression of nitric oxide synthase.
(2).The protection of neurons can prevent aging, injury, and even death of neuronal cells after cerebral ischemia and reperfusion. The active ingredients in the extract can inhibit the expression of mutated genes after ischemia and reduce cell apoptosis.Flavonoids have the ability to scavenge free radicals and alleviate mitochondrial mediated apoptosis caused by increased free radicals.Suppress calcium ion influx, reduce amino acid excitability, and protect nerve cells from damage. Promote ATP synthesis, reduce the production of inflammatory factors, and thus reduce the action of nerve cells.
1.Health effects on cardiovascular system
(1).Effects on the heart: Research on EGB761 (Ginkgo biloba extract), which has been widely used, has shown that the extract significantly reduces the damage caused by myocardial ischemia-reperfusion, enhances myocardial function, and alleviates the resulting angina pectoris. Its pharmacological components are mostly ginkgolides.
(2).Vasodilatory and lipid-regulating effects:The mechanism of action of EGB (Ginkgo biloba extract) on vasodilation is currently uncertain.
(3).Anti thrombotic effect: Platelet activating factor PAF is the strongest aggregation factor, inducing thrombosis.
1.Experiments have shown that ginkgolides are specific inhibitors of PAF and can effectively resist the formation of blood clots.EGB (Ginkgo biloba extract) can significantly reduce thrombosis caused by ischemia-reperfusion and alter blood rheology, in response to phenomena such as vasoconstriction and reduced blood flow after ischemia-reperfusion.Improving skin:Ginkgo biloba extract can help improve skin quality in several different situations.Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder that causes white patches on the skin. Taking ginkgo biloba extract can have a slight but significant improvement in vitiligo symptoms.ü In the form of face cream, flavonoids from ginkgo biloba leaves have significantly improved skin smoothness/roughness, wrinkles and moisture.The increase in water content was the most significant, with an overall increase of nearly 28%.Although this is only a study and the sample size is very small, it does show that the use of face cream containing ginkgo biloba extract may help to naturally slow down aging.
