Gingko Biloba in Traditional Chinese Medicine

In traditional Chinese medicine, the Gingko leaves were used to improve cognitive health, circulatory disorders and respiratory diseases.*

Ginkgo leaves benefit both the Heart and Lungs in TCM. They help to clear phlegm from the Lungs and can be used to treat chronic coughs in people with asthma. They also benefit the heart by breaking up blood “stagnation” and improving circulation. 

It is through these functions that you can understand how it impacts cognitive function in TCM. The phlegm clouds the senses and leads to foggy headedness. This phlegm affects clarity of thinking and impairs focus. Also, the Heart is very closely related to the Mind in TCM, and by benefiting the Heart, we allow the Mind to stay clear, healthy, and calm.
