    Active middle-aged couple

    Bio-Biloba is a pharmaceutical-grade herbal remedy that consists of coated tablets 100 mg of refined, dried ginkgo biloba leaf extract. The extract has a standardized content of 24 mg of ginkgoflavone glycosides and 6 mg of terpene lactones.

    Characteristics of Bio-Biloba

    Bio-Biloba helps maintain good circulation of blood to all parts of the body, thereby helping oxygen and nutrients reach cells in the different tissues. The brain alone accounts for around 20 percent of the body's entire oxygen consumption.

    Because of the high content of standardized ginkgo biloba extract in the product it is possible to achieve the desired effect in approximately four weeks with a daily dosage of 1-2 tablets.

    Remember that health problems which require treatment should always be supervised by a physician.

    What is Ginkgo biloba?

    Ginkgo leaves with pills

    Ginkgo biloba, also known as maidenhair tree, originates from Southeast Asia. For centuries, extract made from the leaves of this tree has been used for therapeutic purposes. Ginkgo biloba, which is not related to any existing tree species, has existed for 240 million years and is occasionally referred to as "a living fossil". It is extremely sturdy and can easily grow to a height of 30-40 meters.

    The Ginkgo tree came to Europe in the 17th century. Its characteristic fan-shaped, bi-lobed leaves contain several active ingredients, of which ginkgoflavone glycosides and terpene lactones are believed to constitute those with the therapeutic properties.
