Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo biloba, also known as ginkgo or gingko, is a tree native to China that is more than 2,500 years old. The tree is known for its green, fan-shaped leaves, which can be found in both urban and rural areas of China. The leaves of the tree are used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a variety of medical conditions. Among these conditions, one of the main advantages of ginkgo biloba is its effect on sleep. Ginkgo biloba contains active compounds that help relax the body and mind, which can lead to deeper, more restful sleep. In addition, ginkgo biloba can also help reduce anxiety and stress, which are two of the main factors that can cause sleep problems.
