Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species on earth, dating back to more than 225 million of years ago. Its seeds have been used as Chinese herbal medicine for thousands of years and it is traditionally used for enhancing memory.


The active ingredients in ginkgo are ginkoflavoglycosides and terpene lactones. Both compounds are strong antioxidants, capable of preventing cells from free radicals damages, especially those found in the brain. That’s why ginkgo is famous for its benefits in memory enhancement. In addition, ginkgo enhances peripheral blood circulation by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of blood, so it may relieve pain caused by reduced blood flow to legs.  


Due to its anti-clotting effect, Ginkgo can increase the risk of bleeding and should be taken with caution if the person is on blood-thinning medications.
