Ginkgo biloba is one of the three main ingredients in TRF; it has three components whose mechanisms of action reduce tinnitus: (1) flavonol glycosides, responsible for ginkgo's antioxidant actions; (2) ginkgolide fractions of terpene lactones, which support blood vessel relaxation and inhibit platelet activating factor, resulting in increased circulation, especially in the micro-capillaries that feed the brain, eyes, and ears; and (3) the bilobalide fraction of terpene lactones, which protects brain neurons by affecting gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors in the brain and by glutamate antagonism and antioxidant activity.
