Stared taking it to improve mental function. However, after two years of daily supplement use, I realized that my thrice yearly migraines had ceased. I have experienced no adverse side effects.

I broke out in a poison ivy life rash ALL over my body for two weeks. The rash was incredibly itchy, and made life very uncomfortable.

I believe it does help with circulation. Word to the wise, it will cause burst blood vessels in the eye if taken while using alcoholic beverages. Not painful but unsightly. Goes away in a couple of days.

Comment:
I used to have a big problem with short term memory. For example, in filling out 3 page invoice forms, I would likely leave out either shipping address on at least one of 3 pages, or shippers name and address. After I started using Ginko these went away. Also a lower leg circulation issue improved almost a 100 %! Very pleased.
