Delayed-Release Standardized Ginkgo
Too large for me
I will be going back to another brand of Gingko, as I require a 120 mg dosage. The only one of that type on Swanson is the "Time Release" type. It makes the capsule larger, to hold in all the "extras" like cellulose, silica, etc. For me, that is very inconvenient. I like a very tiny 120 mg capsule I can get elsewhere, without all the extras. Swallowing capsules is very difficult for me.

Not what I paid for. No delayed release--too strong to give to my elderly mother but too apathetic and used to be using usually somewhat disappointed with Swansons supplements to return these.

Better thinking clarity and quickness.

capsules are not "prolonged release"
the capsules are not prolonged release as Swanson's product page suggests where it states:
Our special capsules slowly release standardized ginkgo for all day mental support.
(when I asked Swanson about this they said the caps slowly release their contents over 6 to 8 hours - totally wrong information)
DRCaps are actually a near instant release capsule whose release is delayed until near the small intestine.
If you don't believe it, then check the manufacturers (Capsugel) website:
Key Study Results
DRcaps capsules displayed delayed release properties
Disintegration started approximately 45 minutes later than a typical immediate release capsule of about 5 minutes
For the majority of subjects, complete release took place in the intestine
Complete release occurred 20 minutes after the onset of release
It's incompetence like this (misinformation, misrepresentation, etc.) which undermines and tarnishes the credibility of the dietary supplement industry.
What else have they got wrong? One can only being to imagine.

A great product!
This ginkgo biloba has helped me a lot. It really works on your temperal lobes (in your brain), and helps with your memory.

Ginko Time Release
There are many Ginko products that I have tried. They did not help. I love this particular Ginko. My head is much clearer. And I can think clearer.

very good product
My husband can tell when we run out of this product. We like it because of the delayed release. It doesn't make us hyped up and jittery. I like it because it helps me have energy through the day.
Thanks for the reasonable price too…Swanson's.

great product for the money
Ive taken a few different ginko biloba products and this being timed release I wondered if it would work well or not. It does help memory , not as much as a high dose powder but definitely seems to work longer.

this works right away for me. I have a crazy job and it's very hard for me to organize and manage my time. with this product, I can do that and that is a HUGE thing for me!! love this and won't be without it.

We have bee taking this product for several years. It has always met our expectations.

I can remember again!
I had not taken this for a long time. It really has made a difference in my life.

Have noticed a difference in my concentration level with this product. Love the convenience of the delayed-released capsule and having to take only one a day instead of multiple capsules. Would definitely recommend this product to a friend.

I need this all day long
I have been taking Ginkgo Biloba for years, but found that Swanson sells a delayed release form of it. I knew that this would be something that I would rather have. I need to feel sharp all day long. At my age, I need every word that comes out of my mouth to be the right one.

after reading a number of reports that caution about taking Ginko Biloba, I have decided to stay away from it and returned the unused bottles.

Better than a cup of coffee
Part of my daily morning supplements routine to get me up and energized.

I've noticed improvement
I have noticed improvement in my short term recall and will continue to use this product.
May 3, 2013
It's probably too soon to notice any difference. I've been on Ginkgo for 2 weeks now and not sure if I noticed the difference. I will continue taking it though till at least I finish the bottle.

The Swanson Ultra delayed release Ginko capsules are a great value - low price and convenient taking one capsule a day only. I do feel improvements in my short memory recollection compared to before starting to use these capsules.
March 25, 2013
even my doctor is impressed with this product

I notice a difference
I have seen a little difference in my level of mental alertness and information retention. I ordered this because I took it a few years back and felt it made a difference then too.

Time Released Ginko
Sure am glad my memory is good .If I couldn't remember I couldn't answer your questions
October 26, 2012
No more memory lapses.
I will turn sixty-three this year. My job is to go out and measure homes and commercial buildings for floor coverings. I noticed that I was always having to repeat my measurements because I would forget the first one after I had three or four in my head. I never had that problem when I was younger. I had heard of the benefits of taking Ginkgo, so, I ordered and it has been great, I have become as efficient in my work as I used to be. Thank you very much

Ease of use a plus
I am so glad Swanson Vitamins offers Ginko in a timed-release, one-capsule-a-day product. This makes it so very easy to use in my hectic daily life-style. Once in the morning and I'm done for the day. The ease of use is a great plus for this product.
