GINKGO

Ginkgo has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy. The extract of the leaves is said to dilate blood vessels to increase blood circulation to the brain for improved memory and it has been used in early stages of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.

Ginkgo leaf extract has been used to treat a variety of conditions including asthma, bronchitis, fatigue, and tinnitus. It is used to decrease leg pain caused by narrowing arteries, for sexual dysfunction, multiple sclerosis and other health conditions.  

Ginkgo is also used in the treatment of ADD and ADHD as it appears to boost symptoms of attention and working memory as well. For this purpose it is usually combined with ginger.

Externally it is used in many skin care products.

Ginkgo is an excellent source of antioxidants.

CAUTION: Ginkgo has certain side effects which may cause allergies and also bleeding.
