Ginkgo Extract and Ovarian Cancer


At the American Association for Cancer Research's annual meeting in Baltimore last year, Ginkgo was highlighted for its use in the prevention of ovarian cancer. Both initial laboratory and epidemiological evidence demonstrated that women who took Ginkgo supplements for six months or longer were shown to have a 60 percent lower risk of ovarian cancer. Lab experiments showed that the ginkgo extract caused ovarian cancer cells to stop growing. The researchers observed an 80% growth reduction in non-mucinous ovarian cancer cells. Ovarian cancer I believe instills more fear in women than any other disease because of its aggressive and silent arrival. Patients frequently ask me if there are any specific things they can do to prevent ovarian cancer. Perhaps Ginkgo Extract shows promise in yet another arena.
