Ginkgo Biloba 6000mg- One-A-Day, Longer Acting Time Release Formula, UK-Made-180 Tablets
- One of the highest strength one-a-day ginkgo supplements available in the UK with each tablet providing 120mg of extract, equivalent to 6000mg of whole dried leaf
- Accurately described with 24% flavonglycosides, 6% terpene lactones consisting of ginkgolides (and bilobolides A,B and C, arguably the most important 'actives' found in ginkgo)
- Time release formula- we are the only company to offer a time release ginkgo so that the important compounds are released into the blood stream gradually over 2-3 hours. This prevents any minor short term effects such as mild headaches, which may occur with non- time release formulas
- The highest grade ginkgo (meets the strictest quality requirements of the German Monograph) demanding strictly controlled, safe levels of less than 5 parts per million (ppm) of a naturally occurring compound called ginkgolic acid. We routinely test the raw material to be sure it's free from other contaminants such as heavy metals, PCB's and pesticides
- Ginkgo is a very popular herb shown to help maintain normal cognitive function (to improve memory in the short term) as well as blood system micro- circulation (cold hands and feet)

Ginkgo is believed to improve the circulation to the extremities including the brain and has been shown to improve memory in the short term. Ginkgo Biloba 6000 is the purest extract in the UK in a unique time release formulation, that is longer acting and prevents any short term mild headaches. This tummy friendly formula disperses the ginkgo ‘actives’ over a period of two hours after swallowing for gentle absorption.
Each convenient one-a-day tablet meets strictest EU regulations on contaminants and contains 120mg of extract with 24% flavonglycosides and 6% (7.2mg / tablet) ginkgolides and bilobalides, two compounds from a group called ‘terpenes’ which have important properties with regards to circulation.
Adulteration stems from the fact that ginkgo extracts are very expensive to produce. It takes well over 50 kilos of dried ginkgo leaf to make just one kilo of extract and it’s a complex manufacturing process. The temptation therefore for suppliers to cut costs is enormous! The most common form of adulteration is to add cheaper extracts of other herbs to artificially ‘spike’ some of the ingredients.
We’re pleased to see this problem is now being highlighted because it helps to explain the vast difference found between ginkgo supplements on the market.
We routinely have suppliers offering us ginkgo extracts which are absurdly cheap but, fortunately, years of experience in purchasing ginkgo has meant that our buyers know which questions to ask and what tests to have done We are then left wondering where the rejects end up!
The few suppliers that pass our strict quality criteria undergo auditing, site visits and vigorous tests of their raw materials before being accepted
Ginkgo Biloba 6000
Ginkgo Biloba 6000; like many herbal products, can contain undesirable compounds. In the case of ginkgo, these constituents are called ginkgolic acids, and occur naturally in small amounts in the leaves and fruit of the ginkgo biloba tree.
At Nature’s Best we ensure that these particular compounds are significantly minimised during extraction even thought this involves an additional and expensive process. We believe that this is absolutely necessary due to the established undesirable effects of these constituents. This process ensures our Ginkgo Biloba 6000 meets the standard for ginkgolic acid content; well below the level of 5 parts per million (5ppm) set by The European Pharmacopoeia Commission. We can therefore confidently declare our Ginkgo Biloba 6000mg to be a truly premium grade preparation.
FOR COGNITIVE & MICROCIRCULATION
Ginkgo Biloba is the most commonly ingested herb for brain health. With properties
believed to support both the circulatory and central nervous systems. Studies show Ginkgo
to improve the circulation to the extremities including the brain and has been shown to improve memory in the short term. Ginkgo Biloba 6000 is a useful herbal supplement for those
looking to support cognitive performance, and for cerebral and peripheral health.
Did you know?
Ginkgo or Maidenhair, is a species belonging to a prehistoric age. It’s quite possible that a Tyrannosaurus Rex nibbled its leaves to help with digestion!
Supplements are like foods when it comes to ‘best before’ dates and that the date on the
back of the label is there to show you how much longer you have before the supplement must be consumed. Exposure to moisture, and over time,
nutrients often degrade, especially if they are vitamins, so the supplement looks okay
but the nutrient levels have declined.
We do it right!
At Nature’s Best the best before date means the product will still contain the nutrient levels given on the label (with a few percent difference permitted each way) on that date, as long as the product has been kept in a cool
100% UK MADE
Many mail order supplements on sale in the UK are manufactured in China or India then shipped to the UK as bulk tablets and capsules. They are then packed into pots and given a UK or Channel Island address.
Although this is quite legal we think consumers have the right to know where their supplements are made. When you buy from Nature’s Best you
can be sure you’re getting products that are manufactured and tested in the UK. Our pots carry our UK quality mark which is your assurance that the product inside has been genuinely manufactured from start to finish in the UK, in factories working to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards.
POWDERED VS EXTRACT
At Nature’s Best we set high standards by which to measure the ginkgo extract that we
purchase. The extraction process is complicated, which is why ginkgo products will never
Stage 1 of the extraction process takes 30g of fresh Ginkgo Biloba leaves.
Stage 2 the leaves are dried to make 6g of dried powder – this is where most companies stop!
Stage 3 the extraction process isolates the active compounds e.g. flavonglycosides, bilobalides and ginkgolides, giving a yield of 120mg of concentrated herb extract – this is the amount of extract in each Nature’s Best Ginkgo Biloba 6000 tablet.
