How It Works:
Ginkgo provides potent food for the body’s circulatory system because it contains flavonoid glycosides like quercetin and other important compounds. Ginkgo is a powerful free radical scavenger. It helps protect blood vessels and optimizes the amount of oxygen supplied to brain cells. It may also help support blood flow to the extremities.
Bacopa is an Ayurvedic herb that appears to stimulate memory through non-specific pathways. Researchers theorize that bacopa allows the body to maintain old neurons and synthesize new neurons more quickly. Studies show that people who took bacopa supplements had reduced memorization time, increased memory time and decreased retrieval time. It also may help boost concentration.
Many herbalists have called gotu kola “brain food.” Despite the sound of its name, it is not considered a stimulant like the kola nut. Rather, it provides many nutritional benefits, especially to the aging body. Gotu kola gained a reputation in eastern nations for promoting longevity.
