      Ginkgo biloba health benefits

      Sometimes referred to as the fossil tree, Ginkgo biloba has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of dementia, sexual dysfunction and blood clots.

      Sexual dysfunction


      Side effects and contraindications


      Many Ginkgo biloba treatments are based on the use of the leaf of the tree. However, as some are based on using the nut of the tree, anyone with nut allergies should avoid these. Also the nuts are mildly toxic so it should not be taken in high doses over prolonged periods

      Headache, nausea, gastrointestinal upset, diarrhea, dizziness, or allergic skin reactions. More severe allergic reactions have occasionally been reported.
