One of the world's leading herbal supplements for centuries and an excellent source of two powerful nootropic ingredients; Flavonoids and Terpenoids.

A limitless (and very affordable) natural supplement I recommend is Ginko Biloba which you can take to increase mental alertness and improve memory. Ginkgo Biloba has been touted by East Asians for more than 1,000 years as a natural way of improving mental acuity. In fact, Gingko Biloba is the most widely used herbal supplement for memory loss and degenerative brain diseases in the world. The antioxidants in Gingko Biloba are likely to keep free radicals and agents of premature aging out of your system.

A Dr. Scholey said of Ginkgo Biloba

"Subjects were able to sustain their concentration for longer. Normally when people have to concentrate over an extended period of time, their reaction time begins to slow – ginkgo seemed to stop that slowing and one dose actually speeded them up"

Dr. Scholey's team discovered that Ginkgo has almost immediate mental benefits; improved memory, concentration, attention resulted from taking this herb. Ginko promotes adenosine triphosphate (ATP) a universal energy molecule of the body and improves nerve cell transmission. An impressive 34 studies have been conducted since 1975 conclusively demonstrating Ginko's benefit to our mind and body.

A paper published in the Journal of Food Science, showed that it enhances memory and concentration, along with having a number of benefits; antioxidant, antiplatelet, antihypoxic, antiedemic, hemorrheologic, microcirculatory actions and as an effective treatment for Dementia.

Flavonoids are an excellent influence on the nervous system:
Protecting neurons from stress by suppressing neuroinflamation. Boosting cognitive function. Terpenoids, positively affect the entire body by their effects on our blood:Dilate blood vessels and improve plasma flow.Allow platelets to move more freely in the blood. Optimized blood flow is very important to those seeking an empowered mind because the mind absolutely relies on a constant flow of blood. Ginkgo also promotes overall healthy blood flow to tissues and organs.

Since it is such positive force influence of healthy blood flow, it is an effective treatment for many elderly conditions: memory deficiency, depression, dizziness, ringing in the ears, slow thinking and reasoning, headaches, and senile macular degeneration (a major cause of blindness).

Ginkgo Biloba comes from the massive Maidenhair Tree, a +300 million-year-old species of tree which has no close relatives. Its leaves have been cultivated for centuries for medicinal purposes. Researchers and scientists have extracted over 40 unique medicinal components from the leaves of the Maidenhair Tree.


Food ForensicsAvoid Chinese-sourced Ginkgo Biloba. Food Forensics explains why:

When I discovered that popular ginkgo herbs grown in China contained a whopping 5 parts per million (ppm) of toxic lead—an element proven to cause cancer and brain damage—I was told that the lead contamination was “naturally occurring” and therefore didn’t matter. Yet when I tested ginkgo herbs grown on U.S. soil, they tested remarkably clean, showing near-zero levels of heavy metals. It turns out that when ginkgo is grown in contaminated soils, it accumulates heavy metals in the herb.

So pass on the inexpensive stuff sold in plastic bottles at your local pharmacy, chose American grown and manufactured organic Ginkgo Biloba which is lab-verified for purity. I prefer powdered over capsuled Ginkgo as it's more economical and it doesn't taste awful when added to tea.

Downloadable Ginkgo Biloba?

You may be interested in taking it as an infoceutical - a non-pharmacological, side-effect-free version of the supplement that takes advantage of the phenomenon of water memory - which is imprinted on water via quantum collocation and electromagnetism using this device...

Infocueticals typically have 1/3 or half the effect of the actual medicine being imprinted. If you're skeptical of Infopathy that's understandable, it's a game-changing application of a little-known scientific phenomenon. But I'd urge you to evaluate the scientific evidence (presented in my biohacker review) that downloadable medicine is no longer science fiction...


It's a good idea to take Ginkgo in concert with Ginseng, Dr. Scholey's (mentioned above in this article) team discovered that test subjects experienced the greatest cognitive gains when taking:

60% Ginseng - 400MG Daily

40% Ginkgo - 360MG Daily

Ginseng is also a natural aphrodisiac, so taking this synergistic combination of herbs will lead to a more limitless mind and sex life!

Ginkgo, Bacopa, and Lion’s Mane

This unique stack boosts mental focus, memory, learning, and cognitive performance while reducing anxiety and depression. I have found that it can significantly boost mental alertness for around six hours at a time without any jitteriness or irritability. It is important to allow a grace period of about twelve weeks of daily supplementation before you feel the stack’s full potential, so don’t expect immediate results. (p.177)

Ginkgo is a very affordable over-the-counter supplement $7-$14 per bottle. It can also be used as a cooking ingredient.

Recommended Daily

240MG - 360MG Daily for increased mental function (24% concentration of flavonoid extract).

Boundless book Ben Greenfield adds a bit of timing advice in his Biohacking deep-dive Boundless...

Effective doses of ginkgo range from 120 to 240 mg taken one to four hours before a cognitively demanding task.

Make sure to check the flavinoid concentration of the Ginkgo supplement you are taking. 

Side Effects:

Some of the rare side effects include vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, heart palpitations, nausea headaches, and restlessness.

Conflicts: Anticoagulants or drugs for blood circulation disorders such as ibuprofen, warfarin, or aspirin can heighten the likelihood of side effects from Ginkgo.
