Effects of Ginkgo Biloba

Postby itachiuchiha » Tue Apr 16, 2013 12:10 pm

So I started taking Ginkgo Biloba 2 weeks ago and I have found improvement in my RC and LR. I find myself able to actually concentrate on the subject matter without thinking about other things.
Anyone else find similar effects?

I haven't, but it's a good idea. I've been trying things like that (different teas, multivitamins, charting mealtypes by time of day to correlate with PT scores) because even though I know much of the effect I experience will be placebo, it's still an effect. Also meditating before RC has helped me a lot, focus is so key...

Where is Gingko on this graphic? (Hint: it's pale, pale yellow)

heavy = a lot of, or is that a type of fish oil?

I've operated under the assumption that you want about 2000mg/day, 2:1 ratio of EPA to DHA. Also I've read that a shitty multivitamin that derives its nutrients from poor sources may actually be more detrimental to your health than taking no multivitamin at all.

I'm afraid my multivitamin is TTT, which kind is best?
