Alzheimers Home > Ginkgo Biloba Extract Information
People should consult their family doctor before using ginkgo biloba extract. This is especially true for those with disorders in blood circulation or blood-clotting and those taking anticoagulants such as aspirin. Many different preparations of ginkgo biloba extract are available over the counter, varying in content and active ingredients. Because not enough research has been done, no specific daily amount of a ginkgo biloba extract can be recommended as safe or effective at this time.
Anyone who is worried about a memory problem should see a doctor. Symptoms similar to those caused by Alzheimer's disease may be caused by other medical conditions, including:
- A high fever
- Vitamin deficiency and poor nutrition
- Bad reactions to medicines
- Thyroid problems
- A minor head injury.
Medical problems like these are serious and should be treated by a doctor as soon as possible.
