About Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo biloba extract is derived from the fruit, which grows in the form of a nut. The fruit has a hard casing, with only one seed making up the fruit. The seed coat has a relatively strong, pungent scent. The relatively foul smell from the fruit is regarded as an adaptation of the fruit during its dispersal process, and as it grows. According to botanists, it is meant to chase away animals that might prey on it as it grows. Most of these seeds drop on the ground during fall season. With the scent that comes from them, they can germinate with ease, with minimal disturbance from preying parties. The fleshy matter on the inside of the fruit has been used for many things over centuries especially in the culinary world. The extract from the fruit was also used as a remedy for various mild upsets. Apart from the fruit, leaves of the ginkgo plant are also popular. They are also incorporated in different cuisines especially in the Korean, Chinese and Japanese cultures. Other people prefer taking the nut as a delicacy in its roasted form.

The existence and use of ginkgo nuts has been mentioned numerously, especially in ancient Japanese and Chinese literature. Although the plant has been in existence since the time of the dinosaurs, it was only discovered and adopted for human consumption about 1,000 years ago. The first written history on the fruit is traced back to the 11th century. It was mentioned in different poems in the Song Dynasty era. Some of the names that were used to refer to the fruit include white fruit, white eye, and duck foot. From the literature available, it is believed that the fruit first grew in China before the natives transported them to Japan and Korea among the popular trade routes at the time. This took place around the 14th-15th century. Most of this activity took place during the medieval era. Japan, China and Korea are the few countries where the breed of ginkgo trees from this eras are still in existence. The ginkgo plant was then introduced to Europe, before it was introduced to other continents. Traces of the plant on Britain soil can be traced back to the 16th century. 

Gingko biloba fruits were consumed widely by women who were nursing toddlers as well as those who were in their fertile years and were planning to have children. The extract, which is derived from the seeds and leaves, was also consumed by the elderly who were at a stage where they were gradually losing their memory. The longevity of the tree has made it a common phenomenon especially in sacred places and places of worship e.g. Shinto Shrines and Buddhist temples. Different people wrote inscriptions of their desires on the trees with the belief that they would come true. It is regarded by some of these people as the oldest tree on earth hence the deep reverence they have towards it.
