Ginkgo leaf (Ginkgo biloba) has traditionally been used to promote circulation and enhance the brain. It’s native to China and comes from one of the oldest living tree species in the world.
Ginkgo is a powerful antioxidant herb that benefits the mind, mood, and cardiovascular system. Because of its ability to improve oxygenation, it has been used for acute mountain sickness, also known as altitude sickness. It is also known to support blood sugar metabolism in the body.
Ginkgo leaf contains over 60 active compounds, including flavonoid glycosides (ginkgolide A and ginkgolide B), terpene trilactone bilobalide, and terpenoids (quercetin and kaempferol).
The constituents found in ginkgo may:
- Increase blood flow

Improve the body’s response to oxidative stress
