Health & Beauty. delivery number 45: Ginkgo Biloba.

Greetings friends of Steemit.



Thank you for visiting my blog and Continuing with the series of properties and benefits of fruits and vegetables, today I bring you information about:


The ginkgo biloba plant belongs to the Gimnosperme family and is one of the longest trees, it can reach 1,000 years of life.

Ginkgo biloba seeds should not be eaten. In fact, they can lead to food poisoning with the consequent loss of consciousness and seizures.

This plant has many properties for our health, of which I investigated some of them.


Blood circulation:

It improves blood circulation in the heart and brain. For this reason, it prevents the formation of varicose veins and strengthens the walls of the capillaries.


Thanks to the increased blood flow to the brain, ginkgo biloba increases concentration. Short-term memory and cognitive skills also benefit from their intake.

Free radicals:

It exerts a continuous action against free radicals. This thanks to the presence of flavonoids and terpenes that have antioxidant properties. Therefore, it can provide benefits to the brain and organs, as it can slow aging.

Macular degeneration:

Flavonoids can stop or reduce macular degeneration. This disease affects the retina and over time gets worse and worse, depriving the affected people, of sight. Ginkgo biloba extract seems to be able to stop this pathology.

Erectile dysfunction:

As we have seen, one of the properties of this plant is to increase blood circulation. This feature can also provide benefits against erectile dysfunction.

Premenstrual syndrome:

Studies have shown that Ginkgo biloba has helped reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.


Washing hair with infusion of ginkgo biloba brings benefits against baldness and alopecia.


  • Not recommended for children, pregnant women and nursing women.
  • People affected by epilepsy should also be very careful when taking ginkgo biloba as it could cause seizures.
  • People with diabetes should consult a doctor before taking the extract of the leaves of this plant.
  • Ginkgo contain alkylphenols, which are allergens, therefore allergy sufferers should avoid it.

I hope you like this initiative … you can make suggestions and propose fruits and vegetables for the next delivery.
