Ginkgo Biloba Benefits

Improve your memory, circulation and other health factors with ginkgo biloba.

The name “ginkgo” comes from the Chinese yin-kuo or sankyo ­(“silver fruit” or “hill apricot”) in ­reference to the fleshy seeds. The ­resemblance ­is superficial: the seed covering smells like rancid butter and contains an acid that can cause a ­severe skin rash. The Latin specific name biloba refers to the leaves, which are ­divided into two lobes.
