Ginkgo Biloba: A magic herb?

What it is?
A very old chinese herb , which is known to increase blood flow to brain.

Why it is relavant to Ultrarunners?
Based on the following study it is known to reduce chances of AMS in mountaineers.

Since I wont be getting time to Acclimatize. I have decided to try this at TRT 100m, and follow a 3 week
routine of Ginkgo and keep taking the capsules during the run. my dosage will be 120mg a day, for 3 weeks.

Given my last year's performance at TRT 50M, I Will find how Ginkgo will help in other High Altitude ventures.
