1. can ginkgo increase blood pressure?

Taking ginkgo in the form of dietary supplements does not increase blood pressure. On the contrary, ginkgo can lower blood pressure in the human organism. The reason for this is the vasodilatory property of ginkgo extract. Ginkgo in the form of food supplements not only lowers blood pressure, but also the cortisol secretion during stress.

    2. the effect of the dry extract

    The leaves of the ginkgo tree are dried and then ground to obtain the extract. The ginkgo extract shows many very different actions and effects on the human organism.

    Ginkgo Biloba dry extract:

    • improves the oxygen uptake
    • protects the human organism from toxic stress and free radicals
    • reduces the degradation of nerve cells
    • dilates blood vessels
    • inactivates oxygen radicals
