Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo Biloba Picture

The Ginkgo tree, also known as the maidenhair tree, is one of the oldest trees on earth. They can live three to four thousand years!

Ginkbo Biloba herb is one of the most widely prescribed herbals in Europe. It may be effective in preventing or treating many of the conditions that increasingly affect us as we age. It improves blood circulation and may decrease the risk of stroke and heart attacks. It may help increase peripheral circulation and improve oxidation of the blood which in turn improves memory and reaction time. Gingko Biloba has a unique ability to inhibit a process called platelet activity factor (PAF) which plays a major role in many of your body's processes such as blood flow and blood clots. By blocking PAF, ginkgo exhibits tremendous healing possibilities.

Because of Ginkgo's PAF-inhibiting quality, it is not an appropriate herbal remedy for those with blood clotting disorders. It is essential to follow the dosage directions on commercial ginkgo remedies. Large quantities can cause negative side effects.
