Ginkgo biloba is the oldest living tree species on the planet today. Native to a small range within China, it is difficult to find ginkgo growing in the wild but the tree is extensively cultivated globally. Ginkgo leaf has a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its wellness-supporting properties. Also spelled gingko, the leaves can be utilized in extracts, infusions, and herbal formulations.
Recent research into the plant has discovered a range of active compounds in the leaves and this has excited a lot of interest in the health-promoting potential of the plant. The leaves contain ginkgolides, these are compounds that are unknown in any other plant species. The leaves are best harvested in the late summer or early autumn just as they begin to change color. They are dried for later use.
Ginkgo can support overall cognitive health and maintaining healthy circulation. It is used to wake up and shake off brain fog.
