Quick Summary

In this meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, supplementation with ginkgo biloba improved blood parameters of vascular health in adults with type 2 diabetes.

What was studied?

The effects of supplementation with Ginkgo biloba (GKB) in the context of type 2 diabetes (T2D).

The following outcomes were evaluated:

  • Blood parameters related to vascular health: plasma viscosity (a marker of inflammation), hematocrit, velocity of the dorsalis pedis artery (the main blood supply to the foot and a marker of circulatory issues), and ankle brachial index (a test of blood flow to the legs)
  • Blood lipids: HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides
  • Biomarkers of glycemic control: HbA1c and fasting glucose
