Gingko is supposedly a natural remedy for memory problems, but it is not going to be the cure all for you. If you’re forgetting a lot of things, it sounds like it may be a lifestyle problem. If you’re a forgetful person it may be time to restructure how you go about your routine. Use a planner, and keep things organized. Gingko is helpful towards memory retention, but if you’re relying on that to remember everything, you’re sorely mistaken.
