NEW ORLEANS - Forty to 60 percent of multiple sclerosis patients have trouble with memory, speech and processing thoughts.

A small study by LSU Health Sciences Center Dr. Jesus Lovera once found the herbal supplement Ginkgo biloba did improve cognitive function.

But new, more recent research, also done by Lovera, is now contradicting those earlier findings.

He was in the studio to explain why Ginkgo biloba does not improve cognitive function in MS patients.
