Why We Use Ginkgo Leaf

Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo contains multiple constituents that play a role in brain and adaptogenic health, including flavonol glycosides and terpene compounds such as ginkgolides and bilobalide. It is known to increase blood flow to the brain and body and cross the blood-brain barrier. Ginkgo stimulates the cholinergic system in various areas of the brain, which has the effect of strengthening working memory, attention, concentration, mood and energy.

A Brief History

As the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct, Gingko is the world's oldest living tree with an existence that can be traced over 250 million years. At one time prominent throughout Asia, America and Europe, it now takes refuge in southern China. Gingkos are large trees traditionally reaching 66-115 ft. in height, and in some cases over 160 ft. Its resistance to disease and insects along with its ability to form aerial roots gives Gingkos a long life with some specimens aging more than 2,500 years. This ancient tree's ability to survive and thrive throughout history is a true testament to its strength and the important influence it has on human health.
