What is Ginkgo?
Known as Ginkgo or Gingko, it is a tree native to Asia and is among the oldest species in the world, with fossils dating back to the Jurassic era. Its use in Chinese medicine dates back more than 5,000 years to treat everything from dementia to asthma or bronchitis; it was attributed with anti-inflammatory properties as well as stimulating blood circulation. Its extract is produced from the leaves, which are so characteristic due to their particular fan-like shape.
Properties of Ginkgo
Ginkgo contains antioxidant phytochemicals such as flavonoids, polyphenols, and terpenes, which are capable of attacking free radicals more effectively than other powerful actives such as beta-carotene or vitamin E. Additionally, it reinforces moisture retention in the skin.
