The pharmacologic effects include following endothelium relaxation mediated by inhibition of 3, cyclic GMP (Guanosine Monophosphate) phosphodiestrase, inhibition of age related loss muscarinergic cholinoceptors and a -adrenoceptors and stimulation of choline uptake in the hippocampus.

Cognitive- Recently, the ginkgo extract EGB 761 was found to increase alpha wave and decrease theta wave activity following oral intakes of 120 or 240 mg in healthy volunteers. These brain wave changes indicate that EGB 761 is capable of improving cognitive function as demonstrated in increased mental sharpness, concentration, and memory.

Antioxidant properties- Gingoba 100
(GBE) has antioxidant actions in the brain, retina of the eye, and the cardiovascular system. One double blind study found that Gingoba could help people with macular degeneration, an oxidation-related disorder causing decreased or lost vision. It's antioxidant activity in the brain and central nervous system to help to prevent agerelated declines in brain function.

Antidepressant- One double blind study in Germany found that elderly depressed people with mild dementia (who were not responding to antidepressant medications) responded well to Gingoba-100 (GBE).

Nerve protection and PAF inhibition- One of the primary protective actions of ginkgolides is their ability to inhibit a substance known as platelet-activating factor (PAF), a mediator released from cells that causes platelets to aggregate ( clump together).

Tinnitus and balance- Gingoba 100 inproved tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and balance problems related to inner ear , an important part of maintaining balance. Double blind studies have confirmed the benefit of Gingoba 100 (GBE) for people with tinnitus or vertigo.
