How to Enjoy Ginkgo Leaf Powder
Ginkgo leaf powder has a mellow herbal flavor that can be enjoyed with other food and drinks. Mix 1 teaspoon of ginkgo leaf powder 2-3 times daily in any food or drink. For a tea, add a teaspoon of the powder to 6 ounces of hot water, and sweeten with honey if you like. Ginkgo powder can also be blended into smoothies and juices, sprinkled over oatmeal, or mixed in sauces and soups.
Health Benefits of Ginkgo Leaf Powder
Ginkgo leaf is often referred to as a brain herb because of its rich nutrient content and associated health benefits. Ginkgo leaf powder is packed with plant-based antioxidants called flavonoids, which protect cells and reduce the risk for developing age-related diseases. It is also rich in terpenoids which researchers believe improve blood flow to the brain. The combination of these protective compounds gives ginkgo leaf powder its brain-boosting powers.
1) Enhance Memory: Ginkgo biloba may improve memory and cognitive performance in patients with dementia. A 2010 study in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry found that compared to a placebo, a 240-mg daily dose of ginkgo biloba extract improved neuropsychiatric symptoms in patients with dementia.
2) Improve Concentration: Do you have a short attention span and wish you could focus better? Ginkgo leaf powder may improve your ability to concentrate. A 2005 study published in the journal Psychopharmacology examined the effect of ginkgo biloba on young, healthy participants. People that received a dose of ginkgo significantly improved performance on attention tasks compared to those in the placebo group.
3) Reduce Anxiety: Ginkgo leaf powder may help manage excessive stress and anxiety. The Journal of Psychiatric Research published a study in 2007 that demonstrated the effects of ginkgo biloba extract in patients with generalized anxiety disorder. Reductions in anxiety tension improved significantly for patients given ginkgo compared to the placebo group.
Ginkgo leaf powder is also known as ginkgo biloba, gingko, and maidenhair tree.
