The Ginkgo plant is one of the oldest in the world, and it is able to treat many diseases. It is worshiped as a sacred tree, but above all it is known for its healing and medicinal properties.
It promotes the functioning of blood circulation and increases concentration. Unfortunately, Ginkgo Biloba has some undesirable substances in its natural state, which is the reason why the healing and medicinal ingredients can only be administered through concentrated products, such as Ginkgo Biloba extract capsules.
Ginkgo has flavonoids, terpenoids, and ginkgolides
This tree is known worldwide for its medicinal ingredients. The seeds, fruit, leaves, and bark of the plant have been used for centuries in Asia, both as healing elements, as well as to increase the beauty of the body. Nowadays, the active ingredient of the plant is obtained in a concentrated form.
It essentially has flavonoids and terpenoids, which are extracted from the leaves of the Ginkgo tree. Around 0.1 per cent of its content are diterpenes, among which ginkgolides are included.
In addition, it also has a small proportion (about 0.03 to 0.06%) of sesquiterpenes, among which bilobalides are included. Other substances that can be found are kaempferols and quercetins.

How to use or how to administer Ginkgo Biloba
For centuries, Ginkgo leaves have been eaten raw, now it is consumed as extracts or supplements.
It is not recommended to consume raw leaves, seeds or bark, since they may contain other harmful substances.
Its raw consumption is not good either. Moreover, its ingredients do not have the same effects for health as they do when used as concentrated extract capsules.
Ginkgo extract is obtained through a process in which the leaves of the plant are smashed, so that their active and medicinal ingredients are filtered out, while discarding and eliminating the harmful substances which can cause allergies and skin irritations.
Ginkgo extract is very valuable, since in order to obtain 100 kilos we would beed five tons of leaves. Therefore, only 2% of the Ginkgo plant is used to get the final extract.
Finally, this extract is machined and processed into tablets. The ginkgo essence is available both as capsules, drops, or juices. The extract can be quickly absorbed by the body, which makes the administration much more efficient than the consumption of the raw plant.
Ginkgo does not act immediately and should be consumed regularly in order to notice its effects. Depending on the symptoms of each illness, the dose should be administered from an eight-week period and up to several years.
Ginkgo Biloba - Side effects
The side effects from the Ginkgo Biloba treatment are very rare and do not go beyond simple gastrointestinal discomfort or allergic reactions in the skin.
The Ginkgo plant has 3000 years of history
The Ginkgo tree belongs to the "ginkgoaceae" family of plants and it is the last representative of this type of plant. It has existed for around 3 billion years and it is one of the oldest plants in the world.
It has a very long history in Asia and it can be found in many temples and religious institutions even today. Ginkgo did not survive after the ice age in Europe, but it did survive in China and Japan. After the French purchased the Ginkgo plant, it was once again introduced to Europe.
The oldest Ginkgo Biloba trees are more than 1000 years old and grow mainly in Asia. Ginkgo trees of 30 metres of height can be found and its leaves are fan-shaped. They have an undulating edge with colors in diverse tones, from green to gold.
In ancient China these leaves came to be used as a cash currency, but this custom did not continue, due to the difficulty to collect them. The flowering of the tree often occurs for the first time when the plant reaches the age of 20, so its sexual maturity arrives very late.
Ginkgo tree seeds have also historically been used as food, consumed in a roasted and peeled form.
The Ginkgo Biloba tree grows very slowly, which is particularly noticeable in the first five years. It grows around 30 cm in height each year, which means that the tree reaches its full development at the age of 100.
It is extremely robust, since it stands the cold, heat, and environmental toxins very well. This feature is very important, since it may play an essential role in the future, with regard to the heavy environmental impact taking place nowadays.
The name ‘Ginkgo Biloba’
The name ‘Ginkgo Biloba’ has a long history. Its correct name is Ginkyo, but due to poor spelling on behalf of a German doctor, Ginkgo was written down instead of Ginkyo and it was finally and definitively adopted in America by the botanist Engelbert Linneoen in his classification system.
The first Ginkgo trees in Europe were acquired by the French in 1780 for 25 guineas, and they were named "Maiden’s hair tree", because of the similarity of the plant to a young girl's hair.
Ginkgo Biloba plants can also be known as silver apricot, due to the silvery color of their seeds. This name derives from plants that are found in religious temples. Other names refer to the shape of its leaves, which are similar to an elephant's ear or they refer to the tree as the 'grandfather', due to the age that the Ginkgo plant can reach.
Ginkgo has even been called Goethe in Germany, since the author of the same name devoted one of his poems to the plants. In addition to these, it receives many more names, some more common than others, arising from its unique appearance, its lifespan of many centuries, or the religious qualities it has been granted.
Ginkgo Biloba as an object of worship
Ginkgo is worshipped in the Far East. In Asian countries it is considered a symbol of hope, vitality, and longevity. The trees grow around places of pilgrimage in China and Japan and they are planted in religious temples. It is common for Asian women to visit a tree, say their prayers and request that all manner of wishes be granted, such as those relating to increased fertility or to have enough breast milk for their babies.
In Ginkgo, the stout trunk and the softness of its leaves converge as a symbol of the famous oriental principle of yin and yang. It has been granted the status of millennium tree, the highest possible award, due to its exceptional properties and its long history.
A striking fact is that the predecessor of this tree was originally deciduous, however, through evolution it appears to have become very much like a conifer.
The tree is dramatically linked to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. The first green plants to grow after the fatal bombing were Ginkgo plants.
In Germany, specifically in the House of Goethe in Weimar, there is a museum dedicated to the Ginkgo, whose origin is the poem written in its praise by the famous German author.
One of the most curious features is its smell, which in the case of the female plants might be somewhat unpleasant when they are in full sexual maturity. But it is only with the arrival of the first flower when the tree reaches twenty years of age, when you can know whether the Ginkgo plant is male or female.
