ginko can be very effective if used correctly. most OTC types are rubbish and not strong enough to do anything. the biggest reason people think they don't work is cos they take what is says on the bottle which is a maintainance dose which is only of use once you have got the desired effect. to get to where you want to be you need a theraputic dose which is often far far higher.
you have to be careful though as you can't take it if you are on certain meds. ginko works by making the blood less sticky. not sure why ginko would increase your sex drive, in men it can help as it can increase and improve blood flow in the penis, women do have increased blood flows to the vagina, clitoris, labias, well the works really, but is not increased as it is in men who take ginko
H&B ginkgo 60mg is 14.4mg GF's. all trial studies are done with either 120mg or 240mg tabs at 24% GF's (28.8mg and 57.6mg GF's) if its done the trick, ok, but if you feel its not working, double or triple your dose if you are not on any other meds
