Nootropic Supplements Used for Circulatory Issues

Poor circulation can affect people of all ages for many different reasons. Some people suffer from atherosclerosis, others have had heart attacks, valve replacements, strokes, or cardiac ischemia. There are circulatory issues which are genetic and have run in a family for generations.  There are also issues with circulation systems that have been abused or mistreated (too much alcohol, smoking, etc.).  Regardless of the cause, there is a high likelihood nootropics can help!*

Top Nootropic Supplement for the Circulatory System

This is the best nootropic supplement for improving the overall circulatory system and helping with circulatory issues.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba is one of the oldest nootropics used on Earth, even having earned a strong place in ancient Chinese medicine (Chevallier, 2016, Roland & Nergard, 2012). There are many published, clinical studies which have highlighted Ginkgo’s ability to enhance circulation and blood flow throughout the body (Balch, 2010). Some of these studies have even been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (2010).  The leaves of the plant are known to produce some of the nootropic’s most powerful medicinal properties in terms of improving circulation (Chevallier, 2016). Generally, these incredible circulation-improving properties are extracted from the leaves to produce either a tincture or pill.  The herb’s extract is also considered a potent enhancer of cerebral blood flow.  The extract inhibits the platelet activating factor (PAF), reducing the likelihood of a blood clot and stroke (2016).

Due to Ginkgo’s incredible improvements to circulation, it is often considered a natural treatment for erectile dysfunction (Murray & Pizzorno, 1998).  There have been numerous studies which have proven the herb’s ability to improve erections in individuals suffering from this dysfunction. These studies have even revealed the herb’s ability to improve erectile function in individuals suffering dysfunction as a side effect of antidepressant drugs (1998).  In general, Ginkgo has been proven to offer amazing blood flow benefits to the lower region of the body (Conkling & Wong, 2006).
