What is Ginkgo?

Often referred to as a living fossil, ginkgo biloba (Maidenhair) has been growing in China for hundreds and thousands of years. As one of the longest living tree species in the world, the ginkgo biloba tree is considered to be the only surviving member of an ancient order of plants.

What is Ginkgo Biloba used for?

Ginkgo biloba has been used for over 1,000 years in traditional Chinese medicine, for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is said that ginkgo acts as a vasodilator (a remedy that opens blood vessels), improves cognitive disorders, and may even benefit those with dementia or Memory loss. Ginkgo alos has a history of use for the treatment of dizziness, vertigo and erectile dysfunction.

Who should not take ginkgo biloba?

Ginkgo biloba may interfere with the management of diabetes and potentially increase the risk of bleeding in those with a bleeding disorder. Gingko is also not suitable for pregnant women or those planning to have surgery in less than two weeks time.
