    The best I've tried is the one I got from Costco. It's from a company called Health Balance. It's concentrated and maintains its strength due to it being in a gel cap.

    @Dufresne , did you find it actually did anything for you? (I haven't found it helpful for anything to do with ME)

    Actually, a little research and I find out that a lot of Ginkgo supps contain high Ginkgolic acid content which can be detrimental.
    Europe has strict guidelines on this, but the US does not.
    My doc alwasy talks about Standard Process supps as being the best. They are the most expensive actually, but I checked it out and they have a stellar reputation.
    Here is the Ginkgo they sell:

    I looked for it online as well and couldn't find it. Health Balance is regularly found at Costco, but for some reason their Ginkgo is not listed online.

    Gel caps are always my favorite form, as they preserve potency well and don't have alcohol.

    Ginkgo tones down my tinnitus, but I don't think it does anything for my ME.
