    Quality brands of ginkgo biloba?

    I'm looking to purchase ginkgo biloba, to see if it might help with my short-term memory problems. I was wondering what good brands of ginkgo biloba you'd recommend? Some of the brands I was looking into are Now Foods, Doctor's Best, and Nature's Way, which makes the popular GinkGold.

    Although i don't take Ginkgo, all the brands you've listed are excellent. I personally use a lot of ''Now Products'' but Nature's way and Doctor's best are fine also ...

    You have to make sure that the Ginkgo is the good kind or it won't do you any good. It must be Standardized and have 24% Ginkgo Flavone Glycosides and 6% terpines. Any brand should be ok - as long as it has these spesifications.

    Thanks for the replies. Would you consider Source Naturals a good brand also?

    Thanks, has anyone heard of Advanced Ginkgo Smart, by a brand called Irwin Naturals?

    Would something such as PS(Phosphatidylserine) be more likely to help with short term memory loss than Ginkgo Biloba does? I've been hearing a lot lately about PS, but it's pretty expensive.
