For 1000's of years, leaves from the Ginkgo biloba tree have been a common treatment in Chinese medicine. Many people use this herb with the belief that they will improve memory and sharpen thinking.
Ginkgo leaf is often taken by mouth for memory disorders including Alzheimer's disease. It is also used for conditions that seem to be due to reduced blood flow in the brain, especially in older people. These conditions include memory loss, headache, ringing in the ears, vertigo, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, mood disturbances, and hearing disorders. Some people use it for other problems related to poor blood flow in the body, including leg pain when walking.
