Ginkgo Biloba seeds

Ginkgo Biloba is the national tree of China, and is also grown in Korea and Japan. Its 1500 year history has found it many purposes, including revered status in the Buddhist community. The ginkgo biloba tree was the only plant to have survived the Hiroshima bombing.

The strength of the tree is further emphasized by its many uses. Ginkgo nuts are frequently eaten, and thought to be an aphrodisiac. Ginkgo leaves are consumed as a memory enhancer. Ginkgo is particularly effective in improving the sexual functions of men because it increases blood and oxygen flow to the brain and throughout the body. Better circulation means blood pumps to the more sexually significant parts of the male anatomy.
