Ginkgo Biloba Benefits

Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Tea Has several positive effects that all stem from increased blood flow and circulation.

Aphrodisiac

Ginkgo Biloba is seen as an aphrodisiac because of its capacity to boost circulation and increase blood flow to the genitals.

Blues

Ginkgo Biloba is an excellent herb when taken for both the physical and emotional effects of depression and anxiety. Poor blood flow to the brain is linked with depression, anxiety, poor focus and low energy levels, and a condition known as "cerebrovascular insufficiency". Research indicates that Ginkgo Biloba can improve symptoms linked to cerebrovascular insufficiency, supporting healthy circulation to the brain thus reducing feelings of depression and anxiety.

Men

Ginkgo also lowers the stress hormone cortisol  and enhances the production of all-important testosterone, making this an excellent herb to use for performance related anxiety. By lowering sex related inhibitions and easing stress, Ginkgo Biloba can help to create the right mood for love. 

Memory

Ginkgo improves memory and concentration by allowing more blood to flow freely around the brain. 

Women

Ginkgo Biloba has been shown to be of great benefit to PMS in several clinical trials. It not only improves the psychological symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome, it also helps to alleviate some physical issues.

Peace and Wellbeing

Additionally, L-theanine has a relaxing (although not sedative) effect, able to bring about a state of "calm attentiveness". It can sharpen focus and concentration whilst reducing stress and enhancing overall wellbeing.
