>I have been taking ginkgo biloba 50:1 extract-24% 60 mg for my memory (i am 67 and forgetfull) when i started taking it all was fine, then after about 3 weeks i became very gassy, bloated, tired and mild headaches. I stopped taking it and felt better. After about 2 weeks i started taking it again and found the same symptoms after about 2 weeks. can any one explain what is going on? Am i allergic to it.
If you are having adverse effects from Ginkgo there are other herbs out there that are good for memory. Try any of these. Bilberry, evening primrose oil, eyebright, feverfew, garlic, rosemary, sage or schizandra to name a few.
