Ginkgo Biloba


Ginkgo biloba, or maidenhair, is a popular herbal medicine made from an extract of the same tree and has seen widespread use in traditional Chinese medicine. This herbal drug contains two constituents, flavonoids and terpenoids, which are have shown strong antioxidant properties.

Ginkgo biloba has seen many applications not only in medicine, but in skin care as well. Gingko leaf extracts are believed to improve cognitive function, promote good blood circulation, relieve anxiety, as well as improve the symptoms of Raynaud’s disease and glaucoma.

Although ginkgo biloba is a herbal supplement which is readily available in most areas in the world, care is still needed when using this drug. Ginkgo does not interact well with other drugs. People should not take ginkgo if they are also taking anticoagulants like Aspirin, because of the higher risk of internal bleeding. The same is true for those who are taking antidepressants, since ginkgo inhibits monoamine oxidase, resulting in a reduction of the effectiveness of the medication. Furthermore, ginkgo contains alkylphenols, which causes allergic reactions in many people.
