Pulse Healthcare Ginkgo Balboa is an extract of Ginkgo, taken from the leaf of the Ginkgo Balboa plant. Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species, dating back to well over 3,000 years ago, a single tree can live to be 1,000 years old and grow to 120 feet. This plant is thought to help promote circulation, particularly to the extremities such as the brain, fingers and toes. These properties make the plant useful in the treatment of poor circulation in particular Raynauds disease. Ginkgo leaves are believed to contain two types of chemical, flavonoids and terpenoids. These chemicals are thought to have strong antioxidant properties; they help our bodies fight against something called free radicals. These free radicals have been linked to contributing towards certain diseases such as cancers. Antioxidants can also help with boosting our immune system, which is our body's first line of defence when it comes to fighting illness and helps protect against heart disease. Ginkgo can help to improve blood flow to the brain which could help improve memory. It could also directly protect nerve cells in the brain that have been damaged in someone who suffers from Alzheimer's and help improve thinking and social behaviour. Being a vasodilator, ginkgo helps to widen the blood vessels, thus increasing blood flow around the body and promoting circulation. This action can also help to lower higher blood pressure.
