Nothing has lasted longer on earth than the ginkgo tree. Not only is this tree the oldest of all known species on the planet and the only plant in its genus, but half a dozen gingko trees subjected to the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Japan in 1945 still stand today.

The powdered leaf of this "living fossil" is taken as capsules, or used to make tinctures, extracts and tea blends.

what else you should know

ginkgo leaf

Ginkgo biloba, also known as maidenhair tree, is one of the oldest living tree species known. Original to China, the tree has survived for millions of years on earth and has played a role in human history for centuries.

Powdered ginkgo is best taken in capsule form as a dietary supplement. Check with your physician first, however, if you take blood-thinning medications. The active compounds in the herb, collectively referred to as ginkgolides, may increase the effects of anti-platelet drugs and high blood pressure medications.
