Monthly Herbs with Elva Brown - Ginkgo Biloba

Monday, September 30, 2019

Herb Name: Ginkgo or Maidenhair Tree

Botanical name: Ginkgo Biloba

What ailments would benefit from it:

  • Poor circulation
  • Inflammation
  • Heart health
  • Brain function
  • Poor vision
  • Memory decline
  • Asthma


How does it work in the body:

Ginkgo contains high levels of flavonoids and terpenoids. These are compounds which have a strong antioxidant effect that combat damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals can damage healthy tissues which can contribute to accelerated ageing or diseases. It can beneficially modulate cortisol during periods of stress and promote alertness and mental clarity. Ginkgo also helps reduce the congestive symptoms of premenstrual cramping by improving blood circulation.

Cautions: Not to be used with known gingko sensitivities. Professional supervision is suggested for pregnancy and lactation. Discontinue 7 days prior to general anaesthesia.

Personal thoughts:

For use in times of mental stress and when full concentration is required. This is a go-to herb for the elderly or anyone in need of a memory boost. Always speak to your health care professional to advise if this herb is suitable for you. (Bone,K,2003,2007)

"After more than 35 Years of emotional and physical heartache which has manifested into years of ill health, I can finally say I AM FREE.. WOW!! Even writing that makes me smile. Obviously I still need medical treatment, but to have that clarity is so over whelming. I am crying with joy now not sadness and frustration."
