Lowering Glutamate | Ginko Biloba

Gingko biloba- Neuroprotective effects of Ginkgo biloba extract. “Antagonistic effects of extract from leaves of Ginkgo biloba on glutamate neurotoxicity” https://www.researchgate.net/publication/13217791_Antagonistic_effects_of_extract_from_leaves_of_Ginkgo_biloba_on_glutamate_neurotoxicity “The effects described mostly in animals include those on cerebral blood flow, neurotransmitter systems, cellular redox state and nitric oxide level. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14523543 “Molecular evidence of the neuroprotective effect of Ginkgo biloba (EGb761) using bax/bcl-2 ratio after brain ischemia in senescence-accelerated mice, strain prone-8.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16677616 Why Is This Important? Glutamate is also the most abundant neurotransmitter, responsible for regulating over 50% of the nervous system. It is classified as an excitatory neurotransmitter, which means it excites [...]
