As opposed to what it might lead you to believe, Ginkgo Smart is not simply a Ginkgo Biloba supplement. In all actuality, it’s much more than that – a nootropic (Well duh, we wouldn’t be reviewing it otherwise). Ginkgo Smart has actually been seeing quite some popularity lately, possibly riding on the popularity of Ginkgo Biloba as a supplement, which is becoming one of the highest selling supplement in the US.

Nootropic Ingredients

We were pleasantly pleased at the fact that it wasn’t too hard to find Ginkgo Smart’s ingredients, which was readily available on their website. Yes, obviously, we’d be able to see the ingredients on the Supplement Facts label on the back of the bottle, but the fact that you’re able to see it online before you buy it allows you know what exactly it is you’re buying. Our readers should agree.

As we’ve mentioned. Although you might think that Ginkgo Smart might contain only Ginkgo extract, there’s actually quite a lot more. However, it wouldn’t be called Ginkgo Smart if there wasn’t special attention paid to Ginkgo, and with that said, a third of the formula is actually only Ginkgo.

Despite that, the other ingredients still suggest a good nootropic, due to ingredients such as Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which enhances focus and mental energy and Trimethylglycine which may enhance mood and motivation, as well as many others.

It doesn’t stop there, though. Ginkgo extract itself is quite useful, due to it being a vasodilator. It increases blood flow to the body and the brain, potentially enhancing cognitive processes, whilst supporting other substances that do so as well.

Brain Enhancing Effects

Starting from the very beginning of our trials, our participants immediately reported that Ginkgo Smart took effect rather quickly, and were feeling an increase in focus just 15 minutes after taking Ginkgo Smart. On top of this, in the next few weeks, they’ve also returned to report higher rates of productivity and more work getting done in their offices.

Ginkgo Smart showed much promise. In fact, our cognitive tests showed that it not only helped in focus and productivity, but also enhanced our participants’ motivation and memory, as well as their capacity to work creatively – thinking out of the box.

Side Effects

Unfortunately for Ginkgo Smart, many of our participants actually experienced a few side effects, which were associated with large doses of Ginkgo Biloba extract. First of all, was an increase in libido – which although, not bad, was not expected. Our participants had varying views on that, some of them claiming a boosted sex life.

Despite this, our participants felt that the fact that a large chunk of the formula was Ginkgo, a naturally occurring substance, made them feel much cleaner compared to other products using synthesized ingredients.

Readers’ Score

Despite the aforementioned side effects, we found that the majority of our readers really liked Ginkgo Smart. Most of the reviews that we received were positive, which was the whole reason why we decided to review Ginkgo Smart in the first place. There were extremely positive results, according to our readers, who reported feeling more focused overall – not just in the work place. Some of them claimed they were able to do things much more efficiently, and stopped “forgetting where the keys were” and similar brain farts we experience regularly.

With all this in mind, Ginkgo Biloba is a worthy supplement in the nootropics industry, using a little bit of ingenuity and being smart to put themselves on the radar. Score for Ginkgo Smart: 7.2 out of 10
