Vasodilator activity on the arteries, increasing venous tone, increased cerebral circulation. Ginketolo, isiginketolo bilabetolo and act on the cell membrane stabilizing.
Ginkgolide block lipid peroxidation and the formation of free radicals, inhibiting the platelet activating factor (PAF). In cosmetics ginkgo biloba is used for the regularization of sebaceous secretion, dry and devitalized skin, etc.

Characteristics and properties of Ginkgo Biloba

Native to China and Japan, is an old legendary tree of more than 250 million years and which has withstood the worst pollution of the twentieth century and in particular the residues of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima.

  • It protects the blood-brain barrier (anatomical barriers and transport systems that control types of substances that enter into the extracellular space of the brain)
  • Decreases the viscosity of the blood by inhibiting the PLATELET-activating factor (platelet activating factor (PAF))
  • Decreases tissue damage during circulatory stress and increases circulation to the extremities
  • Assists in the oxygen distribution and glucose to the brain
