About this item

 

Also known as

Ginkgo biloba and Maidenhair Tree.

Introduction

Ginkgo, the oldest living species of plant on earth, is more than 225 million years old. In this U.S. it has been one of the ten best selling herbs for more than 5 years and a standardized extract of ginkgo leaf is presently one of the most frequently used plant-based medicines in Europe.

Constituents

Gibberellin, cytokinin-like substances, ginkgolic acid, bilobol, ginnol, aspartine, calcium.

Parts Used

Leaves. Leaves are considered “sweet” and have a gentle effect.

Typical Preparations

Teas, capsules, and extracts.

Summary

The natural herb has a long history in Chinese medicine. They are sweet, astringent, and non-heating.

Recent research into the plant has discovered a range of medicinally 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 colour. They are dried for later use.

Precautions

The leaf is not recommended for persons currently taking blood thinning medications.

For nuts- do not use if you have a current outbreak of poison ivy or contact dermatitis, since the increased circulation to the skin caused by the herb could spread the toxin.
