This tree is the sole survivor of a family which had known its zenith in the secondary era 150 to 190 million years ago. It is probably the most ancient tree. It
was first discovered in Japan in the XVIIth Century, and was found again later on in the mountains of the Chê-kiang province of China. It has an astonishing
resistance. It was said to be the only tree to have survived Hiroshima.
Ginkgo biloba is the “tree with forty crowns”: in fall, the leaves remain affixed
to the branches and wear a beautiful golden color. The dry leaves are used in medicine as a vein tonic, due to polyphenols in particular flavonoids.
– Flavonoidic dimeres : ginkgetin, isoginkgetin
– Flavonoids: quercitrin, isoquercitrin, rutosid, kaempferol, isorhamnetin
– Terpenes: bilobalide, ginkgolides A, B, C, J, M
– Essential oils
– Amino acids
– The leaf of ginkgo biloba has free radical scavenging properties, due to the presence of flavonoids; thus protecting the cell membranes of the connective tissue and of blood vessels.
– The biflavonoids accelerate the micro-circulation and strengthen blood vessels: ginkgo biloba is an anti-inflammatory vein tonic agent.
– Ginkgo biloba can be useful in the cosmetic treatment of pale, wrinkled or dry skins, and more generally for aging
