Ginkgo Biloba is one of the oldest trees on the planet. It appeared 280 million years ago. This tree survived the ice age. Ginkgo grew on all continents in the Mesozoic era. Scientists have determined that there were about 50 species of this tree at that time. Today, only one species has survived. In 1691 the German traveler Engelbert Kempfert discovered this tree in Japan. In the early 1700s Kempfert brought the tree to Europe. 3000 years before the new era the leaves of this tree were used for medicinal purposes. Today, Ginkgo and Ginseng are basic elements of traditional Chinese medicine. In recent years, Ginkgo has been cultivated in many states for making medicinal preparations.
The antioxidant properties of Ginkgo Biloba slow down the aging process. They are based on the high activity of biochemical ingredients. They can normalize the function of any tissue (or organ) by restoring blood flow in those tissues. Preparations based on this plant help with senile memory loss, dizziness, headaches and tinnitus. It slows the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It relieves depression and removes anxiety and other problems related to mental activity.
The main cause of aging in the human body is cell damage by free radicals. Free radicals are formed in the body as a result of metabolism or under the influence of external factors (environmental pollution, smoking, radiation, alcohol, stress). When a lot of free radicals are created, they simply lose control and cause irreparable damage by destroying cells in the body. Scientists estimate that uncontrolled free radicals are the cause of over 60 diseases. That is why antioxidants oppose these processes. Ginkgo preparations increase the elasticity of the walls of blood vessels in the brain, contribute to their expansion, restore the blood circulation system, reduce the density of blood and dissolve blood clots.
Based on the research, it can be seen that the Ginkgo effect occurs after 7 to 10 days. The pronounced effect of Ginkgo is within a month after use.
Pour a cup of boiling water over a drink with Ginkgo – a glass of dry and chopped leaves. Cook for 15 minutes on steam. Drink a third of a glass three times daily before meals for a month. Take a break for 2 weeks. You can use the leaf of the plant ground into a powder. Take a small spoonful of powder with warm water in the morning. The therapy lasts a month and is followed by a two-week break . The beneficial effect of Ginkgo on the body is maintained by regular consumption of the plant. Numerous preparations of various manufacturers containing Ginkgo Biloba can be bought in pharmacies.
