Ginkgo has two groups of active substances, flavonoids
and terpene lactones (trepenoids), including ginkgolides
A, B, and C, bilobalide, quercetin, and kaempferol.
The ginkgolides have been shown to control
allergic inflammation, anaphylactic shock and asthma. .
Flavonoids have credible antioxidant effects.
Studies have shown that flavonoids protect the nerves, heart
muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids
improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing
the stickiness of platelets.
Antioxidants such as Flavonoids help
in eradication of free radicals that are found in our bodies
and are potential hazards to our health and the functions
of normal systems.
Environmental toxins including ultraviolet light, radiation,
cigarette smoking, and air pollution tend to increase the
number of these hazardous free radicals which can cause
aging, cell death, heart diseases, cancer and Alzheimer's
disease along with other possible forms of dementia.
Ginkgo may also help control the transformation
of cholesterol to plaque associated with the hardening of
arteries, and can relax constricted blood vessels. (refer
