Ginko, Memory and Menopause
Poor memory in menopause is one condition for which ginkgo biloba is well worth trying.
In Germany ginkgo biloba is one of the top selling products among all medicines — not just herbs!
Purposes for which ginkgo is used include general brain insufficiency (memory, blood circulation), cold hands and feet, Alzheimer’s disease, tinnitus, depression, eye function in glaucoma, reduced sexual function — for men or women, and to help reduce free radicals, which cause damage to cells.
Another possible cause of poor memory during menopause is the effect of lowered estrogen levels at this time; but this notwithstanding, it is worth trying ginkgo anyway for poor memory in menopause because of its good safety record.
Another benefit of ginkgo at menopause time is that it improve libido for both sexes — and reduced libido is something a fairly high proportion of woman complain of at menopause time.
Cautions The only concern reported with ginkgo is that it is suggested that ginkgo may increase the chance of bleeding if blood-thinning herbs, such as Warfarin, are being taken.
