Ginkgo Biloba for a Boombastic Experience.
Remember back in the mid 90’s, there was a popular song by the Jamaican singer Shaggy called “Mr.Boombastic”?
Call it a coincidence or what you please, but we were actually listening to that very song when we decided to do a review on Ginkgo Biloba.
In the song Shaggy sings “Mr.Loba-Loba”, which we haven’t a clue to what it means except that it rhymes with Ginkgo Biloba.
This product itself is essentially from the leaves of the Ginko Biloba tree which has been used for over a thousand years in traditional Chinese medicine.
Many people consume Ginkgo supplements with hopes that it will improve their memory and thinking capabilities.

Now with the advent of nootropics, Ginkgo Biloba is classified as an essential nootropic substance and can be found in the ingredients of many popular nootropic stacks and energy drinks
However, what about Ginkgo Biloba itself if used as a separate standalone nootropic?
It’s not essentially a nootropic itself, but more of a nootropic enhancer.
Ginkgo Biloba if taken improves blood flow to the brain and has antioxidant properties.
For medical purposes, it has many advantages.
Ginkgo Biloba is also known to improve memory and cognitive speed moderately but is mainly useful to treat memory problems such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Other uses of Ginkgo Biloba are also to treat several other medical conditions such as ADHD, depression, sclerosis, tinnitus, and even high altitude sickness.
You can buy Ginkgo Biloba supplements legally over the counter and the price is affordable.
For example, you can buy Ginkgo Biloba products from Bio Conseils or from Absorb Health at 100 capsules per bottle with each pill providing 500 mgs of the substance (24% Flavone Glycosides) at a mere $10.
That’s extremely cheap and is an excellent choice for new comers to the nootropic stack world
There has been a considerable amount of debate from many parties with claims that Ginkgo Biloba does actually produce the effects it claims to provide.
Research has suggested that it does help improve memory function and acts as a brain enhancer to a certain extent, but has no real evidence supporting the fact that it’s actually useful in preventing or treating people with medical conditions such as memory loss (Alzheimer’s disease).
This only makes it suitable for a nootropic addition in combination with other substances.
Also, in Absorb Health’s product description, they include large quantities of information regarding the benefits of Ginkgo Biloba with details such as how it works in the body, reasons why people take it, and even side effects or risks.
They say that the safe level of consuming Ginkgo Biloba daily is around 600 mg.
As with most substances, there are potential pitfalls of taking any form of supplement.
Some of the adverse effects of taking Ginkgo Biloba include headaches, nausea, vomiting, heart palpitations, constant gas buildup, diarrhea, including allergies and rashes.
There are also precautions when taking Ginkgo Biloba. For example, if you have any medical conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, bleeding disorders, or fertility problems, you should stay away from it.
There is even a life-threatening condition called serotonin syndrome which can be developed over time from taking Ginkgo Biloba in combination with certain types of antidepressants.
What’s more, we’re also not convinced about the claims made by Absorb Health’s Ginkgo Biloba product.
This substance has not yet been approved by the FDA as it’s still in popular debate.
Yet, Absorb Health tries to convince you that we should not be doubtful over centuries of Ginkgo Biloba use over FDA approval.
With all factors taken into consideration, we conclude that Ginkgo Biloba is not so “Boombastic” as we initially thought it would be.
The actual nootropic effects are lacking and there is always the risk of health related issues when consuming it.
Even though the price tag is friendly on your wallet, we don’t recommend it to more experienced nootropic users.
There is just too much of a debate going on to clinically decide if it really produces the benefits to our brain.
Trying it in person will be the only detrimental way to decide if it really is an effective nootropic.
Despite many recommendations from people (mostly the elderly), they claim that this nootropic is the ideal one for them, which means that it’s age segment would most benefit older people who are more prone towards medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and such.
Don’t let the price fool you, you’re just wasting your time and money buying any stand-alone Ginkgo Biloba product.
If you do see it as a nootropic addition in some other product, it’s still doubtful that it will do you any good as there is not enough evidence to be found anywhere regarding this claim.
We wonder if Shaggy thinks otherwise.
