THOMSON ACTIVATED GINKGO EXTRACT, 40mg (活性银杏精华)

How to choose a quality herbal supplement?

A product with poor quality can cause the product to be poorly absorbed in the body, is not able to last the duration of its expiry, contain inconsistent amounts of the active ingredient (some may be more, less or even none of the active ingredients) or even contain contaminants or be adulterated with substances that may be harmful to the body.

All medicinal, traditional and supplement products in Malaysia must be registered with the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) before the product can be sold or marketed to consumers. This means that the products have gone through a screening process and will have a registration number beginning with “MAL” followed by 8 digits and also have a Meditag Hologram sticker (Meditag Checker App to check stickers).

Next, selecting a product from a reputable brand that is Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified can also help ensure the quality of the product.

Lastly, purchasing from a reputable source can help ensure that you are not purchasing a dubious/counterfeit product. When in doubt, contacting the company of the product can help verify its authenticity.

 

Are Thomson products Halal?

Yes, all Thomson products are Halal certified.

 

Why Thomson Activated Ginkgo contains only 40mg when other Ginkgo products contain 2000mg?

Ginkgo biloba extract is a product that has undergone an extraction process to concentrate the active ingredients from the crude Ginkgo Biloba plant. Some products that mention Ginkgo Biloba in the thousands of miligrams could either be using the crude herb or be indicating how much of the crude herb their extract is equal to. Thomson Activated Ginkgo and Thomson Circulon 125 each contains 40mg and 125mg of Ginkgo biloba extract which is equivalent to 2000mg and 6250mg of crude Ginkgo leaves respectively.

 

What are the advantages of Thomson Activated Ginkgo?

Thomson Activated Ginkgo is produced from young Japanese Ginkgo leaves with patented ACTIVATION technology from Japan to enhance the absorption of its active ingredients. Thomson Activated Ginkgo is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 24% ginkgo flavone glycosides and 6% terpene (rich in ginkgolide B) which are the key active ingredients found in Ginkgo Biloba. Also, Thomson Activated Ginkgo contains 5x lower ginkgolic acid toxic levels than the recommended minimum. It is free of pesticides, fungicides, yeast, sugar, colouring and preservatives.

 

What is Ginkgolic Acid?

Ginkgolic Acid is a substance found in high amounts in Ginkgo Biloba nuts/fruits, but also in other parts of the plant. It is known to cause allergic reactions and damage to cells. Due to its toxicity the German Commission E Monograph states that Ginkgolic Acid cannot be present at levels higher than 5ppm (parts per million) in Ginkgo Biloba supplements. Thomson Activated Ginkgo and Thomson Circulon are tested to contain less than 1ppm of Ginkgolic acid to ensure high levels of safety.

 

Is Thomson Activated Ginkgo suitable for vegetarians?

Yes, it is suitable. 

 

Is Thomson Activated Ginkgo only suitable for elderly, or can younger people also benefit from it?

Studies showed that Ginkgo biloba has positive effects for the elderly through the improvement in blood circulation and nerve health; however, ginkgo biloba should not be limited to elderly groups as it can also benefit all age groups. For children between the age of 12 and 18, we suggest to take half of the adult dose.

 

What is the recommended dosage of Thomson Activated Ginkgo?

For adults, we recommend 1-2 tablets 3 times a day. For those with a sensitive stomach, it is best taken after meals. Some who experiences alertness and difficulty sleeping at night, take the last dose in the evening, not too close to bedtime.

 

People who need to be cautious when taking Ginkgo biloba supplement: 

- Children below 12 years old

- Pregnant or breastfeeding women

- Those with epilepsy

- Those with bleeding disorder

- Those undergoing surgery

- People who taking blood thinner (e.g. Warfarin, Clopidogrel), blood pressure lowering or diabetes medicines.

 

Can elderly people that have high blood pressure and cholesterol take?

Ginkgo can help improve blood circulation and indirectly help regulate blood pressure. People with high cholesterol have no problem to take ginkgo. While for people with hypertension, if they are taking medication to control blood pressure, there is concern that ginkgo may cause the blood pressure drop too low. They still can take ginkgo, suggest to start to take ginkgo from low dosage and monitor their blood pressure regularly.

 

Is Thomson activated ginkgo suitable for diabetic patients?

Diabetics may have some neuro or nerve pain (especially the leg) and circulatory health issues because high blood glucose could damage the nerve and blood vessels in our body.

Ginkgo biloba contains antioxidants that able to help improve blood circulation, protect our nerves and blood vessels, and helps in nerve repair/regeneration as well. There are some studies that showed that ginkgo biloba can help or as adjuvant supplement for diabetes

While for glucosamine, there are concerns that glucosamine may affect blood glucose as glucosamine is a type of sugar. So, for diabetic, they would have to monitor their blood glucose level closely.
