Product Details

Dried ginkgo leaf (Ginkgo biloba) is primarily used for its potential medicinal benefits. Here are some common uses of dried ginkgo leaf:

  1. Herbal Supplements:

    • Memory and Cognitive Function: Dried ginkgo leaf is commonly used as an ingredient in herbal supplements aimed at supporting memory, cognitive function, and overall brain health. It is believed to enhance circulation in the brain and promote mental clarity.
    • Age-Related Cognitive Decline: Some studies suggest that ginkgo leaf extract may help improve symptoms associated with age-related cognitive decline, such as memory loss or difficulty concentrating.
  2. Traditional Medicine:

    • Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): Ginkgo leaf has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine for various health conditions, including asthma, bronchitis, and urinary tract infections.
    • Peripheral Circulation: In TCM, ginkgo leaf is also used to improve peripheral circulation and alleviate symptoms associated with poor circulation, such as cold hands and feet or leg pain.
  3. Antioxidant Properties:

    • Free Radical Scavenging: Ginkgo leaf contains potent antioxidants, including flavonoids and terpenoids, which help neutralize free radicals and protect cells from oxidative damage. This may contribute to its potential anti-aging and neuroprotective effects.
  4. Eye Health:

    • Vision Support: Some research suggests that ginkgo leaf extract may have benefits for eye health, including reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and improving visual function in people with glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy.
  5. Tinnitus and Vertigo:

    • Symptom Relief: Ginkgo leaf extract is sometimes used to alleviate symptoms of tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and vertigo (dizziness). While research results are mixed, some individuals report improvement in these symptoms with ginkgo supplementation.
  6. Hair and Skin Care:

    • Scalp Health: Ginkgo leaf extract may be included in hair care products for its potential to improve scalp circulation and promote hair growth.
    • Skin Protection: Topical application of ginkgo leaf extract may help protect the skin from oxidative stress, UV damage, and inflammation, making it a common ingredient in anti-aging skincare formulations.
  7. Herbal Tea:

    • Infusion: While less common, dried ginkgo leaf can be used to make herbal tea. However, due to its strong and slightly bitter flavour, it is often combined with other herbs for a more palatable taste.
