Heb met veel interesse de site gelezen. Zou graag willen weten of iemand weet wel leverancier de meest betrouwbare capsules levert. Op andere sites, waaronder die van het RIVM, wordt er gewaarschuwd voor het gebruik van Ginkgo. Zelf zou ik het graag willen gaan gebruiken ivm geheugenproblemen (ben 49)
