Shakeology Superfood Ingredients - Spotlight On Ginkgo

January 14, 2016


Ginkgo, also known as ginkgo biloba, maidenhair tree and ginkgo nut, is one of the most widely used medicinal herbs in the world. The tree is often used in landscaping to add interest, and it is one of the oldest known tree varieties in existence.

Ginkgo is a unique species of tree with no close relative. The gingko is a living fossil, recognizably similar to fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated and was introduced early to human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food. 

Ginkgo is often used for memory disorders including Alzheimer's disease. It is also used for conditions that seem to be due to reduced blood flow in the brain, especially in older people. These conditions include memory loss, headache, ringing in the ears, vertigo, difficulty concentrating, mood disturbances and hearing disorders. 


Ginkgo Biloba is one of the oldest plants that have been used on herbal and natural medicine. However, this plant was known to grow only in parts of Asia and therefore was used in China in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese cooking.

Health Benefits

Taken orally, Gingko Biloba is known to have properties that can help in improvement in symptoms of clogged arteries like painful legs. Also known as claudication, this condition has been studied in laboratories in the context of Gingko Biloba.


The herb can help those who have been diagnosed with multi-infarct dementia or preliminary Alzheimer’s disease. Consumption of Gingko everyday helps in fighting signs like depression, performance anxiety, poor concentration, confusion, dizziness, headaches, absent-mindedness and more.

Regular issues like Pre Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and Depression have also been known to be reduced with regular consumption of Gingko Biloba.


Gingko Biloba benefits may also include eye related issues like retinopathy, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).


Reynaud’s disease is a condition where the level of blood to the toes and fingers is reduced. With the expanded blood vessels and microcirculation, ginkgo helps in providing adequate blood supply to the extremities and therefore has likely positive effects for this condition, as well.


Some people use ginkgo to treat sexual performance problems. It is sometimes used to reverse the sexual performance problems that can accompany taking SSRIs, a certain class of antidepressant (such as Zoloft or Prozac).


Using ginkgo for asthma and bronchitis was described as far back as 2600 BC.
