People who need to care for minor maladies should take 40 milligrams of concentrate regularly. People who suffer from more serious illnesses will have to take a higher dose in order to experience an improvement in their condition. If you suffer from any brain disorder the suggested intake is 120-140 milligrams of concentrate twice or three times a day. People who suffer from leg pains and loss of balance should have 120-160 milligrams twice or three times a day.
A ginkgo concentrate treatment should last for at least seven weeks in order to notice the results.
