Ginkgo Biloba

Best-selling herb in the World

Ginkgo biloba is one of the world’s oldest living tree species, with a history spanning more than 300 million years. Trees can live for more than a thousand years on their own. The best-selling herbal product in the world is Ginkgo Biloba. It is made from the green leaves of the Ginkgo tree, which is native to Asia but is now grown all over the world. There are several active ingredients in the extract, such as Ginkgoflavoneglycos, bilobalide, terpene lactones, and ginkgolides A, B, and C. Ginkgo tree extracts have been utilized to treat cardiovascular and pulmonary ailments in Asia for over 5,000 years.

The most potent effect of ginkgo is on the circulatory system. Ginkgo flavonoids widen the micro-capillaries, the smallest part of the circulatory system, increasing blood circulation and oxygen levels in the brain and other vital organ tissues. Platelet aggregation or clumping within the artery walls is also prevented by ginkgo. This improves artery wall strength and flexibility while lowering the risk of arteriosclerotic plaque development. Ginkgo is being studied for its involvement in senility, forgetfulness, migraines, and Alzheimer’s disease because it increases oxygen flow to the brain and improves glucose uptake and utilization. According to recent studies, some patients with similar symptoms had a slight increase in cognitive capacities after taking Ginkgo. Ginkgo has been found to help lower the frequency and intensity of depression, in addition to the benefits it provides to the brain.

Ginkgo has also been studied as a treatment for atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease by German researchers, which is related to circulatory improvement. This disease makes it difficult to walk, and ginkgo has been demonstrated to improve blood flow to the legs, allowing people to walk for longer periods of time with less pain. Ginkgo biloba is a powerful antioxidant that has been found to have a particular affinity for scavenging superoxide radicals.
