By drinking ginkgo tea, you can get the benefit of the tea’s memory enhancing properties. Try mixing it with other memory enhancing herbs such as rosemary or sage. Today ginkgo biloba is one of the most commonly prescribed herbs and is a great example of a tonic herb – one that balances whatever is going on in your system; if you are tired it can energize you, if you are stressed it will relax you.
Allergies and asthma also improve with ginkgo. The herb contains a dozen different anti-inflammatory chemicals and seven natural antihistamines. It is sometimes called an anti-aging herb because it has been proven to increase blood circulation to the entire body, especially the brain, increasing mood, mental alertness, memory, and overall stamina, which are the very functions that diminish as we age. Much study has been done on Ginkgo and its effects, and indeed, it does appear to be about as close to a fountain of youth as we are going to get anytime soon.
- Excessive use of Ginkgo can thin the blood and should be used with caution by anyone taking anti-coagulants.
