Ginkgo interacts with anticoagulants (Coumadin®) and anti-inflammatory agents (aspirin). Associating Ginkgo and these drugs could increase the risk of hemorrhage.
Some transient side effects have been reported depending on the dose and formulation: nausea, abdominal heaviness, vertigo, headache, fatigue and nose bleeding. All these effects cease upon stopping or reducing the herb dosage.
It is highly recommended that people with coagulation problems (phlebitis, etc.) see a healthcare professional before taking Ginkgoforce.
One double-blind, randomized clinical study evaluated the efficacy of Ginkgoforce in 241 patients between the age of 55-85. Patients were assigned to 3 treatment groups receiving either 20 drops 3 times/day (recommended dosage), 40 drops 3 times/day or a placebo, over a 6-month period. Subjects from the two groups receiving Ginkgoforce had a significant subjective and objective improvement (as measured by three different tests) of their cerebral function as compared to the placebo. The difference between the two groups receiving Ginkgoforce was insignificant. The authors concluded: “Ginkgoforce is capable of improving the cerebral function and seems very well indicated for the treatment of age-related memory problems. (…) for this drug, the 20 drops 3 times/day dosage should be considered as optimal for long term treatment.”(5)
