What makes Gincosan different?

Natural healthcare products can vary considerably depending on the species of plant chosen, the way it’s grown and harvested, and the extraction and production process. Therefore, it’s essential to ensure the active ingredient in your product is the same type, and in the same quantity, as the one used in clinical trials.

 

In Gincosan, we take care to use the same specific extracts (combination of GK501 and G115) with the same specifications that have been proven in clinical studies to aid cognitive function and mental performance.  That’s why you can be sure that Gincosan offers the same benefits as demonstrated in the clinical trials.

For this reason, interaction between Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer and anticoagulants cannot be completely excluded. Patients on anticoagulants should seek medical advice before starting treatment with this product.

 

There may be a possible interaction between efavirenz, an antiretroviral treatment and Ginkgo biloba, therefore it is not recommended to take these two products together.10,11
