Minimal Memory Enhancment
Ginkgo biloba
Citation:   Berry Boy. "Minimal Memory Enhancment: An Experience with Ginkgo biloba (exp34479)". Feb 27, 2007.

240 mg oral Ginkgo biloba (daily)
I had never tried a 'smart drug' before and decided it would be worth my time to try.

The next day I drove down to my local super market and picked up a bottle of 60 mg. (24% concentration) ginkgo Biloba tablets.

I have previous experience with psychoactive drugs, anti-depressants and stimulants. I have been taking ginkgo for about four months now.

During the first week I noticed little, if any, effects. At the two week point I started to notice some mild increases in short term memory as well as memory of past childhood experiences.

While on ginkgo, I noticed not so much that I was able to remember things more clearly or thoroughly, it was more like being able to remember that there WAS a date or event to remember.

I also noticed a slight increase in energy, both mental and physical.
