This oldest known living fossil, more than 5,000 years old, is native to China. The tree has an average life span of 1,000 years. It belongs to the Ginkgoaceae (Ginkgo family) and is a large shade tree and can grow up to 100 feet or more in height with a trunk more than 8 feet in diameter. It produces foul-smelling fruits that are inedible, and ivory-colored seeds that have long been used as food in Asia. The oldest trees are serving in the temples of the Chinese and Japanese Buddhist monks. These trees are considered to be very sacred to their way of life.
Most often Ginkgo is associated with improved circulation and memory retention. A 1997 Journal of the American Medical Association study confirmed the successful use of Ginkgo in improving cognitive performance, mood and social functioning in Alzheimer's patients. This study noted Ginkgo's potential for improving short term memory, longer attention span and oxygen metabolism in the brain with improved transport of oxygen and glucose, the energy source of the brain. Ginkgo has strong antioxidant properties, protecting both the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system from aging.
