Thinking of using ginkgo for tinnitus?

Ginkgo for Tinnitus - How It Works

Earlier studies done in France show that ginkgo provided relief from tinnitus.

Experts suspect that this popular herb works to improve blood circulation to the inner ear, supports the nerves responsible for hearing and protects against age-related free radicals that damage nerve cells.

However, recent well-designed clinical studies show that ginkgo is no better than placebo (sugar pills) even when taken for 12 weeks in treating subacute tinnitus.

In conclusion, the researchers suggest the need for additional studies involving a greater number of volunteers to verify this negative finding.

Is it worth trying? Since the exact cause of tinnitus is not known, certain causes for ringing in the ear may be treatable with ginkgo but the preliminary research studies are not promising.

Dose to Use

Take 40 mg three times daily with food for tinnitus treatment. Results may take from 6 to 12 weeks to appear. For concentrated formulations, see the direction provided by the manufacturer.
