Ginkgo Extract and Ovarian Cancer

Terms: Uncategorized

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.
