The Ginkgo extract contained in A.Vogel Ginkgo is not standardized on one active principle since the synergy of all the components is necessary for optimal efficacy. This homeopathic preparation thus contains all the active principles of the Ginkgo leaf: flavonoids (often called ginkolides or bilobides), terpenes, carotenes, etc.
Ginkgo extract promotes increased blood flow to extremities, which explains its usefulness in vascular occlusive diseases such as intermittent claudication (Raynaud's disease). The same mechanism of action could explain its effect on memory and mental faculties. Ginkgo is a powerful antioxidant, as effective as Grape seed extract.

Ginkgo interacts with anticoagulants (Coumadin) and anti-inflammatory agents (aspirin). Associating Ginkgo and these drugs could increase the risk of hemorrhage. Some transient side effects have been reported depending on the dose and formulation: nausea, abdominal heaviness, vertigo, headache, fatigue and nose bleeding. All these effects cease upon stopping or reducing the herb dosage. It is highly recommended that people with coagulation problems (phlebitis, etc.) see a healthcare professional before taking Ginkgo.
