Native to China, gingko has been used in food and medicine for centuries. It is said that the elephant's long memory is due to eating gingko leaves. You'll enjoy the mildly sweet leaf as tea.

Ginkgo biloba is referred to as a living fossil because it is one of the oldest and longest living species of tree in the world. The tree is native to China, where its leaf has been used in traditional medicine for centuries.

Although gingko leaf contains at least 40 known compounds, only two produce pharmacological effects—antioxidant flavonoids and terpenoids. The latter includes ginkgolides and bilobalides, which have been the subject of numerous clinical studies.


Background: Imagine a plant that has existed for over 190 million years. The ginkgo tree has been around that long and is considered the oldest tree on earth. Much research has been done about this plant that's been used since ancient times in China.

Description: The ginkgo tree grows as high as 100 feet. It is native to China and is also grown in Japan, France, and South Carolina. The leaves and the fruit containing the seeds are removed from the tree in the fall.

Safety: Do not take more than the recommended dose of Ginkgo as too much may cause toxicity. In some countries the use of this herb is restricted. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
