Ginkgolide B is the main character here: it acts on microcirculation and it has a strong antioxidant action.
Verbena, Verbena Officinalis
Verbena (Verbena Officinalis L.) is native to Europe and widespread in Italy up to 1400m. In Italy it’s also called “Erba Colombina” or “Erba Crocina” and it has historically been used for its beneficial properties in Roman times when it was considered sacred; as a consequence, all the sacred plants such as laurel, olive and myrtle were called verbena. Flowers and leaves of verbena have always been used as ingredients in herbal teas and preparations with draining, analgesic, antipyretic, calming and diuretic properties. The upper parts of the flowers are used in decoctions or gargling against sore throat.

Its oral intake is recommended to improve memory and cognitive abilities but also against fatigue and anxiety and for the treatment of trauma, wounds and circulation problems. Finally, centella asiatica is recommended against sunstroke, tonsillitis, pleurisy, hepatitis, stomach pain, indigestion, but also asthma, anemia and diabetes. When applied to the skin, it turns out to be really useful against wounds and scars, including stretch marks associated with pregnancy.
Matè, Ilex paraguariensis
Mate or yerba mate is an infusion obtained from the leaves of Ilex paraguariensis A. St. Hill. National drink in Argentina and Brazil, mate is almost a ritual, like coffee for Europeans., for its natural caffeine content. Mate extracts are able to activate the so-called TGR5 receptor which is involved in the regulation of basal metabolism and energy consumption and which also boosts the immune system. The making of mate is pretty simple: the ends of the twigs are cut and exposed to heat in order to inactivate the enzymes; in this way the leaves can keep the typical green color. They are subsequently dried and chopped, ready to make herbal infusions.
Moldavian balm, Moldavian Dragonhead
Moldavian balm is a plant which is native to the southern regions of Siberia and the Himalayan area, now spread also in Central and Eastern Europe. It is well suited to cold climates, arid soils and valley floors in both alpine and subalpine areas. Usually it’s 60 cm high, but it reaches up to one and a half meters in height. With its typical dark green leaves, Moldavian balm has lilac-colored flowers with a calyx of 10 cm which is typically tubular bilabiate. Dried flowers and leaves are used to flavor foods and drinks; just by rubbing a moldavian balm leaf you can feel the intense citrus scent thanks to the high content of citrals.
Basil, Ocimum Basilicum

There are many properties associated with basil, a plant which is omnipresent on tables of Mediterranean kitchens: considered to be pretty miraculous, it has analgesic, bechic, diuretic, as well as sedative and – last but not least – aphrodisiac properties.
