Gingko biloba with Folic Acid decreases symptoms in painful neuropathy

In this study German researchers at the University of Essen placed 60 patients with diabetic nerve damage on one of four protocols; Ginkgo biloba alone, Folic Acid alone, Ginkgo Biloba together with Folic Acid, or inactive placebo. All three supplement therapies reduced the symptoms of diabetic nerve damage compared to placebo, however, the combination of Ginkgo and Folic Acid was superior.
