Anyway, I can report the following effects of Ginko:
I was hoping that Ginko would help my ME, which has many symptoms, one of which is poor short term memory, and sometimes not being able to remember the word for something, or putting words in the wrong order.
Initially I took 7 drops three times a day as listed on the bottle. One the first day, I felt very 'sharp' mentally. It was a weekend, but I suddenly had an idea about a way forward in a work situation. I decided to write a paper for my Management Committee at the women's refuge where I work to inform them about the theory behind the practice of our services. I read 2 books carefully and picked out the lots of relevant points. I made links I didn't realise existed to the services I manage, and wrote a 7 page paper. The feedback I have had on the paper has been excellent.
I was delighted to have had such mental capacity as I usually have to rest for at least 2 hours during the day, and can sustain creative work for at the most 1.5 hours before I exhaust myself and have to vary tasks.
By day 2 I was feeling 'wired' - my head was buzzing with ideas, but I couldn't switch off. At night, my dreams were very vivid and complex, (not scary in any way).
Then I remembered that you had suggested that I take 2 drops three times a day, so I reduced the dosage as I was feeling as though I had overdosed on coffee.
With the dosage that you recommended, I felt very good on Ginkgo. My dreams returned to normal, I felt rested after sleep, and I remained creative and able to deal with complex matters clarity. I managed to make intelligent comments throughout long meetings and didn't feel any mental fatigue.
Ginkgo certainly had a strong affect on me - in a very positive way.
