Abstract

Ginkgo biloba is a dioecious tree with a history of use in traditional Chinese medicine, Although the seeds are most commonly employed in traditionalChinese medicine, in recent years standardized extracts of the leaves havebeen widely sold as a phytomedicine in Europe and as a dietary supplement in the United States. The primary active constituents of the leaves includeflavonoid glycosides and unique diterpenes known as ginkgolides; the latter are potent inhibitors of platelet activating factor. Clinical studies have shown that ginkgo extracts exhibit therapeutic activity in a variety of disorders including Alzheimer's disease, failing memory, age-related dementias, poor cerebral and ocular blood flow, congestive symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, and the prevention of altitude sickness. Due in part to its potent antioxidant properties and ability to enhance peripheral and cerebral circulation, ginkgo's primary application lies in the treatment Of cerebrovascular dysfunctions and peripheral vascular disorders.
