This is the latest discovery in miracle food...
This tree with yellow leaves is used in Chinese medicine for centuries. An extract of gingko leaves is taken for the antioxidants it has as much than green tea, but is also a vasodilator.
The seeds, similar to those of pistachio, are edible and are part of the Chinese diet.
In extract form, it is consummed to improve memory, combats aging (like all antioxidants), and is used against many diseases, skin, varicose veins, etc. ...
But this product is it perfectly healthy and does it really have all the desired effect?
This is not the opinion of the Journal of American Medical Association, which claims that the Ginkgo Biloba:
- Does not improve memory.
- Do not slow the decline in cognitive abilities.
To verify this, a study was conducted with as usual, people consuming the product on one hand, and other subjects consuming a placebo, on a population of more than 3,000 people and over a period of 6 years.
The conclusion of the study is clear: no positive effect was found on those who used extracts of this plant ...
This does not preclude the sale of this product that make millions of dollars, at least in the U.S. before it will arrives in Europe.
