Abstract

The brain is the platform for our mental health. But there is a growing body of evidence, and a number of significant voices are championing the role of diet in the care and treatment of people with mental health problems. Ginkgo biloba leaf extract has shown beneficial effect in treating impairments in memory, cognitive speed, activities of daily living, edema, inflammation and free-radical toxicity associated with traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's dementia, stroke, vaso-occlusive disorders, and aging. The purpose of this chapter is to provide the mechanisms of action, clinical indications, and safety of Ginkgo biloba extract.
