Ginkgo is said to support overall cognitive health and helps maintain healthy circulation. Dried ginkgo leaves are considered "sweet" and have a gentle effect. The powder can be used in teas, capsules, and extracts. Native to China, the ginkgo tree is beautiful and unique, both aesthetically and biologically. Wild populations of the tree are rare. Nevertheless, ginkgoes are heavily cultivated across China and in some parts of the United States. Six ginkgo trees survived the bombing of Hiroshima, at the end of WWII. The closest tree still lives less than 1200 meters from the epicenter. It stands as an international symbol of resilience. The ginkgo itself is regarded as a "bearer of hope." Ginkgo trees are remarkably hardy, are slow to grow and can live over 1000 years. Precautions: Use in persons with coagulation disorders should be under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications. (Ginkgo Leaf Powder).
