What is newzealandpurehealth Ginkgo biloba?
The Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is a unique tree with no close living relatives. It is classified in its own division, the Ginkgophyta. For centuries it was thought to be extinct in the wild, but is now known to grow wild in at least two small areas in Zhejiang province in eastern China, in the Tian Mu Shan Reserve. The geological records indicate this plant has been growing on earth for 150 - 200 million years.
The earliest record of the use of the leaves as a medicine is said to be mentioned in the Chinese Materia Medica Shen Nung Pen Tsao Ching (which should originate from about 2800 BC or from the Han dynasty [206BC-220AD]) as an aid for blood circulation and the lungs. This record cannot be confirmed however because the original of this work has never been found. For several hundred years, many diseases were treated using ginkgo biloba. In the late 1950s western medicine began to study its medicinal uses. Dr. Willmar Schwabe Company produced the first extract from the leaves in 1965.
Nowadays Ginkgo is prescribed in Europe and used by many people in the U.S., Canada and other countries for its medicinal abilities. After the 70s paleontologists, botanists, biochemists, cultural and theological historians began to investigate the Ginkgo more intensively too.

- Protects against oxidative cell damage from free radicals (antioxidant)

It has many alleged properties, and is mainly used as a memory enhancer and anti-vertigo agent.
- Ginkgo Biloba is gaining recognition as a brain tonic that enhances memory because of its positive effects on the vascular system, especially in the cerebellum. Benefits of enhanced circulation in the brain include improved short and long term memory, increased reaction time and improved mental clarity.
