The Ginkgo tree was present in prehistorical times and can grow to be several thousand years old. It is found in Asia. Some three million centuries separate us from its origins. The latest representative of the oldest tree species in the world, the Ginkgo, originating from China and Korea, is a dioecious tree (there exist female and male trees). For the Chinese, this fact recalls the notions of ‘Yin’ and ‘Yang’. In China, the Ginkgo was venerated as the “Tree of Knowledge”, integral part of their cultural heritage. Ginkgo has been called Japanese temple tree, because it was often planted near temples. Nowadays it is often used as a roadside tree, as it appears to be very resistant to environmental pollution damage. The Ginkgo has a very great number of medical applications: circulation problems, vasodilator... Rich in polyphenols, the extract of Ginkgo leaves is a powerful antioxidant.
