Can Ginkgo Biloba help with vitiligo?

Ginkgo Leaves VitiligoGinkgo Biloba extract seems to be a simple, safe and fairly effective therapy for arresting the progression of the vitiligo. Ginkgo Biloba is known to have anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and antioxidant properties, thus potentially impacting the oxidative stress mechanisms of vitiligo. 

The ease of taking an oral pill, the relatively low cost, and the low frequency of adverse reactions make its use tempting for vitiligo management. There are no recognized guidelines on the maximum daily dosage of Gingko Biloba. Some manufacturers recommend twice-daily intake of 120 mg of standardized Gingko Biloba with the meal, on a continuous basis.

Intake of Ginkgo Biloba has been also reported to improve symptoms associated with dementia including anxiety, improve sleep efficiency and reduce awakenings, - but in high doses it can interfere with around 500 drugs. 

Check with your doctor before starting with Gingko biloba therapy – especially if you are regularly taking aspirin, warfarin, ibuprofen, ticlopidine, azpazolam, digoxin, diltiazem, haloperidol, trazodone, nicardipine, nifedipine, omerprazole, thiazide diuretics, tolbutamide, or valproate.
