Ginkgo Biloba is a tree well known for its longevity and
a single tree may live as long as a 1000 years or more. The Ginkgo
Biloba Tree is also one of the oldest species of trees dating back to
the ice age.

Although it is relatively new in the united states,
ginkgo biloba is the most widely prescribed medication in Europe, often
for problems related to poor circulation. Every system in the body from
the brain to sexual function depends on a steady flow of adequate blood

Ginkgo biloba is reported to aid in enhancing
circulation to the brain (helping improve memory and concentration),
has been used to successfully treat male sexual problems caused by
inadequate blood flow to the penis, may also be helpful with therapy

Many of the warnings that I've read about Ginkgo Biloba
include information on consuming Ginkgo with other blood thinners and
prescription drugs. Since Ginkgo Biloba aids in increasing
blood flow it can be very dangerous or even deadly when taken with
other drugs designed to perform the same function. Please read the
warnings on any supplements that you take, even if they are all
natural. Even aspirin can have side effects.
