The Ginkgo tree, a sacred tree of the East, is the oldest surviving tree species on earth. The ginkgo tree is thought by many to possess miraculous power, bearer of hope and symbol of love, and because of all of its properties it is associated with longevity.  The Chinese have used the plant medicinally for eons and the  Ginkgo leaf has been the subject of extensive modern clinical research in Europe. Its most striking clinical effect is its ability to dilate blood vessels and improve circulation and vascular integrity in the head, heart, and extremities. Reduced circulation to the head is responsible for many of the mental and neurological symptoms of aging, including memory loss, depression, and impaired hearing. Double-blind clinical trials -- considered the most reliable method of scientific research -- have shown that ginkgo can help ease these conditions when they are due to impaired circulation.
