Some components of Rehaminnia seem to immune system and reduce pain, swelling and some components also seem to balance blood sugar level.
Rehmannia effects energy use and maybe beneficial for people with diabetes and insulin resistance. Sugar extracts of this plant increased insulin production in mice while catalpol lower glucose level in diabetic rate catalpol increased the secretion of endrophins from the adrenal gland. Which helps transport glucose from the blood into the muscles.
Highly effective on all types of Diabetes. Also effective on Hepatitis, Viral Hepatitis, Internal Haemorrhage.

Hypersensitivity to Rubia Cordifolia Manjistha is a contraindication. In addition, Rubia Cordifolia Manjistha should not be used if you have the following conditions:
Ginkgo biloba is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth during pregnancy. It might cause early labor or extra bleeding during delivery if used near that time. Not enough is known about the safety of using ginkgo during breast-feeding. Do not use ginkgo if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Effect of administration of the standardized extract of Ginkgo biloba leaves on learning, memory and exploratory behavior was estimated in water maze and hole-board tests. Rats (18-month old) received for three months at doses: 50, 100 and 150 mg/kg b.w. per day. After completion of the behavioral experiment, concentrations of neurotransmitters were estimated in selected brain regions. ANOVA demonstrated significant differences in the content of monoamines and metabolites between the treatment groups compared to the control. The increased level of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in the hippocampus and 5-HIAA (5-HT metabolite) in the prefrontal cortex correlated positively with the retention of spatial memory. Positive correlation between platform crossings in SE during the probe trial and neurotransmitter turnover suggest improvement of spatial memory. Long-term administration of Ginkgo biloba extract can improve spatial memory and motivation with significant changes in the content and metabolism of monoamines in several brain regions.
