3) Does Ginkgo-Bacopa Quick Thinking Work and it is Safe?

Advertised as a remedy specifically designed to enhance cognitive functions while promoting a good memory, Ginkgo Quick Thinking is composed of a series of ingredients which vary from vitamins to herb extracts. All ingredients are known for their individual qualities upon the human memory, but this particular combination hasn’t been researched further. One of these compounds is Ginkgo Biloba. The active components found in Ginkgo are called glycosides and terpene lactones. These thin the blood, thus helping improve muscle tone from the blood vessels walls.

This process determines enhancement of the blood flow throughout the body. It can be found in North America, China or other countries around the world. Although it is used as a memory enhancer, it has other beneficial properties as well. Among these, there are: treating symptoms related to diseases such as Alzheimer’s or peripheral artery, enhancing blood circulation and helping with macular degeneration and glaucoma. Consumption of Ginkgo-based supplements can lead to some unwanted side effects. These include headaches, skin reactions, digestive problems and muscle weakness.

Another ingredient found in this product is Phosphatidylserine, a chemical that was once obtained from cow brains. It has generally been used as a supplementation helpful for people who have Alzheimer’s, attention deficit-hyperactivity and age-related decline. The treatment with phosphatidylserine supplementation should be followed from 6 to 12 weeks to obtain results. With doses of 300 mg, some side-effects may occur, such as insomnia and stomach upset.
