Ginkgo biloba, also known as the maidenhair tree is known for its resilience and hardiness and is revered for its many medicinal uses. It is referred to as a living fossil because ginkgo biloba is the oldest species of plant known with no surviving close relatives. The fall gold ginkgo leaf has a sweet mellow herbal flavor that is most prized as a tea, made into tonics and extracts but not commonly used in cooking. They are harvested late in the season because the medicinal properties of the plant are believed to be at their strongest.
Ginkgo leaf is often referred to as a brain herb because it is rich in potent antioxidants and nutrients that are known to help improve blood flow to the brain. This benefit supports memory and the general health of the brain. Ginkgo can increase blood flow by promoting the dilation of blood vessels. It has a long history of a list of health benefits that not only include improved cognitive function but encourage a positive mood and increased energy.
