Definition: The most ancient of all trees, ginkgo is native to areas of the Far East and is a favorite of Chinese practitioners for the treatment of respiratory disorders.

Scientific Updates: Numerous studies have found that ginkgo can protect the neuronal membranes in the brain and help prevent the decrease in cerebral reception that occurs with aging.101 During an open trial involving 112 geriatric patients who suffered from inadequate cerebral blood flow, 120 mg of ginkgo extract caused a significant regression of pre-existing symptoms.
