Ginkgo

Powerful remedy against allergies, vasodilator of the arteries, an excellent antioxidant, because it activates the cell metabolism
Ginkgo is a gymnosperm and for this reason it does not flower as we usually understand them, but it has structures defined as cones or strobili or, as in this case, modified scales. It is a dioecious plant, i.e. it carries separate male and female fertility structures on different plants. The fruits (of which the embryo is edible after roasting) are covered by a fleshy, pruinose yellow covering with an unpleasant smell when ripe.

  • Terpenes
  • Flavonoids
  • Polyphenols
Contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding, administer with caution in patients taking anticoagulants, blood thinners and platelet inhibitors, MAO and NSAID inhibitors or acetylsalicylic acid at the same time. During the period of intake it is good to avoid exposure to the sun and/or tanning lamps, because it is photosensitising.
The ginkgo, besides being considered the oldest tree on Earth, is also one of the most long-lived, since it can reach 1000 years. No wonder, then, that in Japan it is considered a sacred tree, often found in the vicinity of temples. For this reason it is believed that the species has been preserved thanks to the cultivation carried out by Chinese monks to decorate places of worship.
It is native to China, where fossils dating back to the Mesozoic era have been found, and Japan. Today Ginkgo Biloba is widespread in the temperate areas of the planet, as an ornamental plant for parks and city avenues; it was introduced in Europe in the middle of the 18th century.

Vasodilator of the arteries, while in the veins it has a vasoconstrictive action, therefore it is recommended for asthma attacks. The vasoprotective property is given by the plant's ability to improve the tone and elasticity of the walls of veins, arteries and capillaries, and is therefore recommended in the treatment of neuropathies caused by diabetes, macular degeneration of the retina, and other circulatory problems, such as hemorrhoids, varicose veins and capillary fragility.

An excellent antioxidant, because it activates cell metabolism and protects the brain and nervous system from damage caused by free radicals, which can help to counteract the effects of aging.
