My mother had a stroke back end of August last year.
She appears to be slowly deteriorating cognitively (we have memory clinic coming up this Thursday) which could be dementia driven.
So I’ve just been looking around for anything that could help.
There are mixed messages for Gingko Biloba and PAX Ginseng.
I’m wondering if anyone has tried these and if so whether they helped.
Hi, haven’t used either , did look into it a while back, but it did say to beware if you were on Blood thinners, so I left it alone. Perhaps check with your G.P. or Chemist, find the latter to be more helpful. Let me know how you get on.
Best wishes, Jane.

I’d read the same about blood thinners Jane - which is what partially prompted the query.
I’ve spoken to my Mum’s GP (and Dad’s as thought migh help him), and was given the line, they couldn’t recommend or give an opinion because it wasn’t a medicinal supplement.
@Juppy as @jane.cobley mentions these are not recommended if taking certain meds, your GP is the same as mine and won’t give an opinion on any supplements.
Best wishes to you all

Pretty much clears it up.
Please do your research on what will work.
