A landmark clinical trial has found that a unique combination of Panax Ginseng and Ginkgo biloba extracts can significantly enhance mental performance in healthy, middle-aged people. The study showed the unique Gingko biloba/Ginseng formulation can promote fast, accurate thinking, improve short and long-term memory retention and reduce mental fatigue. The results were recently presented at a National Institute of Mental Health seminar and announced today at a press conference at The Rockefeller University in New York City. The large clinical trial involving 256 men and women was led by Professor Keith Wesnes, Chief Executive, Cognitive Drug Research Ltd., Reading, England and visiting professor of psychology with the University of Northumbria, Northumbria, Newcastle.
The 14-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multi-center trial showed the group of volunteers receiving the active herbal combination had statistically significant improvements in cognitive function (average of +7.5%) compared to the control group receiving placebo. The combination product was well tolerated by study volunteers. The results seen in this study can't necessarily be applied to all Ginkgo/Ginseng combinations. The extract used in the study was Ginkoba M/E, a dietary supplement manufactured and distributed by Pharmaton Natural Health Products, is a unique formula of two herbal extracts, GK501(TM) Gingko biloba and G115(R) Ginseng. These unique extracts are only found together in Pharmaton's Ginkoba M/E.
