Ginkgo holistic extract

What is it?


A great number of medicinal plants get their curative effect not only from a sole active principle, but also from the sum of all their active principles. We are talking about the application of the holistic principle that is a law of nature: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Therefore, the total extract of a medicinal plant (like the Ginkgo in Ginkgo Extra) brings to the patient's organism a complex of substances, conceived by nature, according to its law (holistic equilibrium) which man Himself is subject to.

Monosubstances, by their unilateral and aggressive action, are susceptible to modify the biological equilibrium and provoke undesirable side effects. For example, salicylic acid (aspirin) in a holistic extract of willow is counterbalanced by other elements that prevent it from causing stomach bleeding without compromising its analgesic properties.

Total plant extracts offer a complex of active substances which act in synergy and offer full spectrum therapeutic action.

This is the main difference between total extracts - or holistic extracts - and standardised extracts which are modified to act more like a pharmaceutical drug.
