Ginkgo Biloba Benefits

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

A ginkgo tree may live more than 1,000 years and grow to 195 feet tall with a diameter of up to 4 feet. This deciduous species was abundant worldwide during the Paleocene epoch but declined before the Ice Age, ­eventually surviving only in the mountain forests of ­eastern China. Gingko trees have been cultivated for ­centuries in the gardens of Chinese and Japanese temples. Botanists speculate that no truly wild ginkgo trees are now in existence.
