Ginkgo Biloba, one of the oldest trees in history, can live up to 1000 years and reach heights of 120 feet. It is one of the most commonly used herbs in existence today in the United States and Europe.

This antioxidant-rich herb is known to help support healthy circulation, and is an excellent source of iron, calcium, and vitamin C. The anti-aging effects of better circulation may include increased energy, decreased blood clotting, reduced inflammation, better concentration, improved memory and better brain function.


Common Names: Ginkgo, maidenhair

Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology
Ginkgo leaf has a rich folk history for treating poor circulation. The shape of the leaf with its many fan segments were thought by early herbalists to represent the many vessels of the circulatory system poised for maximum circulation. The longevity of the tree itself and its ability to resist pollution and disease give it special place with folk practitioners. These observations alone point herbalists to its potential uses. Standardized concentrates of the bitter principles in ginkgo are sold all over the world but especially in Europe and Japan. Studies have shown it to be effective in increasing peripheral blood flow.

Ginkgo has demonstrated remarkable ability to improve peripheral circulation. All the anti-aging effects of better circulation go along with this ability: increased energy, antioxidant effects, decreased blood clotting, better concentration, improved hearing and others.

No one quite knows how it accomplishes its feat but its action is attributed to a group of bitter compounds that include flavonoids, hetersides, and anthocyanidines. It is especially popular as a longevity drug in Japan and is gaining popularity in the United States as the population ages. Its active principles seem to wear off after six to eight hours so small doses are recommended three times a day for maximum effect.

Contains bitter compounds (flavonoids) that decrease capillary permeability, thrombosis and platelet aggregation. These compounds increase peripheral blood flow and reduce inflammation. Ginkgo is an excellent source of iron, calcium and vitamin C.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • We use Ginkgo often in tea and tincture combinations. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. For instance, it can easily be made into powder, and used in capsules.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most herbs, Ginkgo should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.
