Ginkgo biloba – bioactive ingredients

  1. 1. Lorenz Lo Sauer / 2010Flickr photos: lezumbalaberenjena, CCBYSA
  2. 2.  Part 1: Introduction ◦ Gingko – the living fossil ◦ Gingko – the favorite ◦ Ingredients ◦ Egb 761 ◦ NTP studies ◦ Health benefits? / adverse effects Part 2: Primary active compounds ◦ Recapitulation: Isoprenoids ◦ Ginkgolide B MNP ◦ Flavonol ◦ Biflavones ◦ Polyprenols ◦ Alkylphenols
  3. 3.  Common Names ◦ ginkgo, ginkgo biloba, fossil tree, baiguo, bai guo ye...  Own genus ◦ Ginkgophyto (pre-gymnosperm)Q: How?  Living fossil ◦ Longlived: 2.500+yrs  Tall: 20-35m (66-115ft)! Resistance to disease; insect-resistant wood,A: Tough!  aerial roots and sprouts, some fire resistance  Survivalist: „rough“ settings such as stream banks, rocky slopes, cliff edges…
  4. 4.  Last decade ◦ 3000+ papers published ◦ 400+ about chemical analysis ◦ Over 3200 ginkgo-related patents filed Interests for triterpene lactones (TTLs) ◦ Ginkgolides (memory enhancers?) ◦ Bilobalide ◦ Biloba extract Ginkgo industry ◦ Revenue >1 billion $ Fig 1. Ginkgolides: structure
