Gingko Biloba is another promising ingredient found in the best dietary supplements. You’ve heard the claims: improved memory, promise for Alzheimer’s patients, relief of asthma symptoms, improved sexual functions, and the list of circulatory benefits goes on. For Western medicine this may be all new, but Gingko Biloba has been a part of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. More recently, Chinese literature names Gingko Biloba as one of the best dietary supplements in the treatment of heart and lung diseases.

But all gingko is not equal. Its active ingredient can be extracted from its leaves and its seeds. The most widely investigated leaf extract is EGb 761. Keep this in mind as you read about various studies with Gingko biloba and its benefits in your dietary supplements.
