 Blackmores Ginkgo + Brahmi (40)

Features and benefits

  • Contains Ginkgo and Brahmi.
  • May be helpful in times of mental stress.

How it works

The memory enhancing and cognitive effects of Brahmi (Bacopa monniera) have been attributed to the active components saponins, in particular bacosides A and B. The mode of action is thought to be by the:
- Positive influence on many nerve endings found in the brain that are important for memory and cognition
- Antioxidant effects by neutralisation of free radical producing metals and by increasing the levels of antioxidant enzymes hence assisting in avoiding cell damage

Ginkgo's (Ginkgo biloba) main neuroprotective and cognitive enhancing effects have been attributed to:
- Improvement in blood circulation to the brain and associated increases in oxygen and nutrient supply.

Dosage

Adults - Take one tablet twice daily with meals, or as professionally prescribed.
