Ginkgo Supplementation: Uses, Effectiveness, and Safety is organized by Western Schools and will be held from Aug 28, 2017 - Aug 28, 2020.
Gingko biloba is an herbal product obtained from a long-lived tree that has been cultivated and used as a therapeutic agent in Asia for centuries. The active principles are thought to be flavonoids and terpenoids that have antioxidant, vasodilating, and antiplatelet activity. Many indications have been proposed for Gingko biloba, but none has received strong evidence-based support to date; among the most-studied indications are cognition and dementia. Consumers have difficulty evaluating the literature and making appropriate choices with regard to the uses, dosing, adverse effects, interactions, and product quality of gingko. Pharmacists who are knowledgeable about ginkgo supplements can assist patients in the appropriate use of these products to achieve better health.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
