Ginkgo supports overall cognitive health and helps maintain healthy circulation.
Also spelled gingko, the leaves can be utilized in extracts, infusions, and herbal formulations.
Native to China, the ginkgo tree is beautiful and unique, both aesthetically and biologically. Having lived for over 225 million years, the ginkgo is one of the oldest known species on the planet. After the bombing at Hiroshima at the conclusion of World War 2, surveyors examined the effect of the blast on local plant populations. Throughout the devastation, six ginkgo trees survived the bombing, the closest of which still lives less than 1200 meters from the epicenter. This tree stands as an international symbol of resilience and the ginkgo itself is regarded as a "bearer of hope."
Qualities: Dried ginkgo leaves are considered "sweet" and have a gentle effect.
