1. Ginkgo Biloba
An extract made from leaves of a ginkgo tree has been shown to increase blood flow to the brain and provide a slight benefit to memory. It has been used for centuries as a remedy for many kinds of medical problems, and some recent studies show that it can help prevent or slow down the advancement of symptoms related to dementia or Alzheimer’s.
There have also been studies that show ginkgo can relieve pain caused by partially blocked arteries in the legs, along with various other issues associated with poor circulation. The only way to safely consume ginkgo is an extract from the leaves, as the seeds and the raw leaves themselves are harmful to the human body and can even be fatal. It is also important to remember that just because it’s a natural remedy, it can still cause problems when taken in too high of a dose or when taken along with certain medications.
