Ginkgo biloba can promote the strengthening of cerebral arteries or peripheral blood vessels, restore the elasticity of hardened blood vessels, improve narrowed blood vessels, and thus restore vitality to atrophied brain cells, prevent Alzheimer's disease, improve memory, and reduce dizziness. . the
Ginkgo biloba was rarely recorded in previous herbal medicine books. It was not until the 1960s when domestic and foreign scholars developed and screened natural medicines that they discovered the valuable medicinal value of ginkgo biloba. The ranks of health care products and cosmetics have recently established its extraordinary status as a legal drug - in the 2000 edition of the Pharmacopoeia (Part One), which was officially implemented in China recently, Ginkgo biloba has been included as a legal drug, which is called its : Nature and flavor are sweet, bitter, astringent, flat, return to the heart and lung meridian, function to astringe the lungs, relieve asthma, promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis, and relieve pain. It is used for cough and asthma due to lung deficiency, coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, and hyperlipidemia. In the research, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that a small ginkgo leaf contains many ingredients, and the pharmacological activity is unexpectedly powerful. Among them, there are more than 20 kinds of flavonoids, and there are terpenes, phenols and many more. trace elements, vitamins and amino acids. It is no exaggeration to describe it as a miniature treasure house.
Improve cardiovascular and cerebrovascular circulation, prevent and treat cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases
In the 1960s and 1970s, German scientists were the first to discover that Ginkgo biloba contains a variety of pharmacological components. Among them, there are two main types, one is ginkgolides, and the other is ginkgo flavonoids, which are unique in dealing with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. After a large number of pharmacological experiments and clinical trials, the good effects of ginkgo biloba have been affirmed by many experts in medicine at home and abroad, and ginkgo biloba and its preparations have been included in the Pharmacopoeia of the People's Republic of China, and the 2000 edition of the United States. The new version of the Pharmacopoeia is indeed very rare for the United States, which did not believe in traditional Chinese medicine in the past.
One is that ginkgolides can selectively resist platelet activating factor. Platelet activating factor is a strong endogenous active substance that can cause platelet aggregation and thrombus formation in the human body. It is an invisible killer that induces cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, especially stroke and myocardial infarction. It is very dangerous. Ginkgolide is the nemesis of platelet activating factor.
The second is that ginkgo flavonoid glycosides have a high-strength ability to deal with white blood cells. Ginkgo flavonoid glycosides have been proven to effectively fight and eliminate free radicals, and play a good role in delaying aging, especially recent information from abroad. It is believed that Ginkgo biloba can be used to prevent and treat patients with early Alzheimer's disease, especially to help restore and improve memory.
The third is that picrolactone and flavonoid glycosides have a synergistic effect, which can expand blood vessels, increase blood flow, improve cardiovascular and cerebrovascular circulation, and protect brain and cardiomyocytes under hypoxic conditions. In addition, it can reduce triglycerides in the blood, increase the content of high-density lipoprotein, and increase the activity of red blood cell superoxide dismutase. Therefore, the preparation of Ginkgo biloba extract has relatively good effects on patients with coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, hyperlipidemia, cerebral concussion, sequelae of brain trauma, etc., and adverse reactions are generally rare, and it is easy to be accepted as a health care drug.
