Gingko has a long history of use in treating blood disorders and memory issues. It is best known today as way to potentially keep your memory sharp.
There is some evidence indicating that people with dementia can benefit from taking ginkgo, although more studies are required.
Some of its benefits can include:
- Improved thinking
- Improved memory
- Better social behavior
- Reducing tinnitus
Gingko biloba was first used for its medicinal properties in Ancient China. The Chinese took gingko for its claimed cognitive benefits and to alleviate symptoms of asthma, they also ate gingko nuts because of their "strengthening" properties.
It improves blood circulation by opening up blood vessels and making blood less sticky. It is also an antioxidant. For those reasons, gingko may improve vein and eye health.
Gingko leaves contain flavonoids and terpenoids, which are both antioxidants. In your body, harmful particles called free radicals build up as you age, and may contribute to heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer disease. Antioxidants like those found in gingko fight off free radicals, and stop them from damaging DNA and other cells.
Traditional uses of gingko biloba include:
- Preventing bed wetting
- Increasing sexual energy
- Soothe bladder irritation
- Treating intestinal worms
