This powder made a difference for me. I was getting so forgetful it was embarrassing, not to mention scary. I bought this powder along with some gelatin capsules and filled the capsules with the powder. My memory was getting so bad I thought I had Alzheimer's disease. I would get up from my desk with a purpose, but by the time I was out of my seat I forgot what I got up for. I know this happens to the best of us occasionally; however, when it happens with great frequency throughout the day it becomes worrisome. Now I occasionally forget what I was just going to do, but nothing like it was before I took the gingko.
