Ginkgo biloba is one of the world’s oldest living species of trees and is one of the most important plant based medicine available. Ginkgo is a popular plant for boosting blood flow to the brain (improving memory) and fingers (helping Raynaud’s) – it is widely used as a mental and vascular stimulant and a powerful protector of the brain, liver, eyes and circulatory system.
Not many people realize that gingko boosts blood flow also to the genitals.
Relaxes blood vessels and boosts circulation to the peripheries thus improves maintenance of an erection, even at a relatively low dose. Research involving males with erectile dysfunction showed a beneficial effect after 6 – 8 weeks treatment, and after 6 months half of patients had regained full potency.
Who would benefit? Those whose low sex drive is linked with mental fatigue, poor memory, stress during times of intensive study (eg for exams), peripheral vascular disease or cold extremities. Would also benefit male smokers who tend to have less firm erections.
Gingko cures impotence relatively slow but the results are permanent. It is more like a medicine than an aphrodisiac. Those who are looking for immediate results should take sex pills like VigrxPlus that contain some fast acting herbal aphrodisiacs beside gingko.
Check for interactions if taking any prescribed drugs.
Do not take during pregnancy.
Some people are unable to tolerate ginkgo even in small doses.
Ginkgo can cause headaches, seizures, irritability, restlessness, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting; if these symptoms develop, check with your practitioner to see if you should lower your dosage or stop taking ginkgo completely.
