Ginkgo biloba improves brain circulation, reduces free-radical damage and may slow the onset of Alzheimer’s. WARNING: If you are taking a blood-thinning medication, such as warfarin(Coumadin), consult your doctor before taking vitamin E or Ginkgo biloba. Both have mild blood- thinning effects.

    Marcus— The breakdown of Vitamin B dosages may have helped me. At any rate I found it interesting. In reading the label on our Super B-Complex indicated that more B-12 should probably be added.

    I’m relatively new to the supplement scene…and basically don’t know squat about them. The more information that is posted…The more that I will learn. Thanks.
