Ginkgo, Ginkgo biloba
Ginkgo is a prehistoric plant (it dates back until 250 millions years ago) appreciated for its healthy and beneficial properties; its therapeutic and nutritional uses bloom in ancient traditional Chinese medicine and at the beginning of “Western” phytotherapy (herbal medicine). When infused, its leaves release low ginkgolides concentrations which have natural invigorating and antioxidant effects with a light digestive action. Ginkgolide B is the main character here: it acts on microcirculation and it has a strong antioxidant action.
Hypericum (St. John’s wort), Hypericum perforatum
Hypericum, or St. John’s wort, is a very common plant in phytotherapic tradition. Natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, it contains high concentrations of two main active principles, hypericin and hyperforin.
