Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
 

Ginkgo, the oldest living species of plant on earth, is more than 225 million years old. In this U.S. it has been one of the ten best selling herbs for more than 5 years and a standardized extract of ginkgo leaf is presently one of the most frequently used plant-based medicines in Europe. The natural herb has a long history in Chinese medicine. They are sweet, astringent, and non-heating.

Recent research into the plant has discovered a range of medicinally active compounds in the leaves and this has excited a lot of interest in the health-promoting potential of the plant. The leaves contain ginkgolides, these are compounds that are unknown in any other plant species. The leaves are best harvested in the late summer or early autumn just as they begin to change colour. They are dried for later use.

Popular uses for ginkgo include to support healthy nervous system and circulatory function.*

Constituents of Note: Gibberellin, cytokinin-like substances, ginkgolic acid, bilobol, ginnol, aspartine, calcium.
