Gingko Biloba is  known as a long-life  tree with the unchallenged reputation to cure many serious ailments such as memory deficiencies, arterial occlusion, sexual weaknesses.

Location: Originated from China, it was spread throughout the globe. The gingko tree's scientific name is "Gingko Biloba". In the USA, this plant is known as  the "maidenhair tree", which can sustain hundreds of hundreds years of life.

In Seoul where I lived for a few years, it is  the normal part of the landscape. It beautifully adorns all the streets of the splendid south korean metropolis. According to information I received,  the municipality of Seoul grew this majestic vegetation for  environmental and medical purposes. In due season, City Hall services cut the branches not only for security reasons but also for the use of pharmaceutical industries.

If you are an "early riser", as I used to be at that time, you can encounter Korean grandmas ripping the yellow fruits with its characteristic aroma spread in the chilly  atmosphere of the dawn. Later in the day, they will prepare a  traditional healing decoction which ingredients had not been revealed to a curious  foreigner like me. Koreans (particularly Korean Grandmas), though extremely polite are very shy and not very talkative.They would not let you bother them by too many questions.  "Good friends" told me that the  decoction is  an unparalleled cure against flu.They claim it protects, without cost,  for  the entire winter season; but, after due  research, I found no evidence of that particular health benefit. I suspect the truth is elsewhere...

Useful parts: Leaves, fruits, bark, nuts.
                        In Japanese and Chinese culinary art, the  Gingko nut extracted from the seed is served as a high quality dish,  carefully prepared on special  religious or wedding occasions.  
I got to warn you about gingko seed usage; indeed, be careful  here; do not try a recipe you know nothing about because ingesting the seed can be poisonous for humans. Such a case has been reported. Do not  try the  mentioned recipe  without the supervision of an expert!
The leaves are the part containing the substance used for pharmaceutical purposes, to prepare tablets, pills and supplements.

Supposed health benefits: Gingko Biloba can more or less ease certain negative symptoms of the Alzheimer disease.
It may also be helpful in some cases of dementia;
Sexual deficiencies;
Arterial occlusion;
Blood disorders;
Memory deficiencies.

Medical research: University of Maryland, School of Pharmacy conducted research on the effects of that substance.
                                  Korea (pharmaceutical production). Pharmaceutical industry uses it to produce drugs.

                           It cannot be taken as a substitute of a medical advice.
                           This article is written as a brief overview by virtue of general information.
                            Before taking any  gingko biloba supplement or cure, you must consult a registered medical expert.

I thought important to post a video from an expert and related to the topic of Gingko Biloba. Please take a look and get more accurate information from the scientific point of view:
