Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)

Ginkgo really has taken the world by storm so much so, that the trees are grown specifically to meet the demand across many countries.

So what is all the hype about? The most important constituents present in the dried leaves are the ginkgolides, bilobalide, and flavone glycosides which have many actions on the body namely circulatory and cognition enhancing, as well as neuroprotective according to scientific evidence.

We personally believe its best enjoyed in a cuppa when you need a 3pm pick me up, or if you’re cramming for that exam (caffeine free of course), as Ginkgo may also improve concentration and memory. So keep calm and sip some Little Wildling Co tea, you’ve got this!
