    I've been taking Rexall Ginkgo Biloba 120mg once a day for over 10 years now. I do technical work and I've noticed it does help my memory especially names and locations. Now that I'm in my 50's I'm considering upping my dosage.

    started to have moderate to severe dizziness to the point of loss of balance. I am guessing my blood is too thin since it works like a blood thinner. Talk with your provider before taking if you are already on supplements and Meds.

    My short term memory has never been good and my focus often impaired, but with the Gingko I function normally. Over the last 10 years I have taken 120 mg/day and at any time I run out or forget to take it after a few days, it is obvious that I need this suppliment.
