  • Studies suggest that ginkgo biloba supplements can reduce symptoms of anxiety, improve glaucoma and boost blood flow in conditions like Raynaud's syndrome and erectile dysfunction
  • Ginkgo biloba is the world's oldest living tree and some trees in China are said to be 2,500 years old
  • Ginkgo survived the dinosaur extinction and one tree survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima
