GINKGO BILOBA – SHREDDED LEAVES OF THE LIVING FOSSIL
The Ginkgo tree is one of the oldest types of trees in the world with no close living relatives. Ginkgo is often called a living fossil, because there were fossils found that are recognizably related to the modern Ginkgo. The oldest was from the Permian, dating back 270 million years. The Chinese consider Ginkgo a sacred tree. The main active compounds in the leaves of the Ginkgo tree are flavo-glycosides: kaempferol, quercetin, isorhamnetin, and proanthocyanidins.
Several studies show that taking Ginkgo extracts or drinking Ginkgo tea can be significantly beneficial when it comes to memory enhancement. Those who suffer from a lack of memory or have difficulties in remembering things often show improvement when consuming Ginkgo on a regular basis.
Another big benefit when drinking Ginkgo tea is in raising the energy level – drinking just two cups of tea per day will make you feel more alert and energetic. This is backed by studies showing Ginkgo helps with fatigue.
