The Ginkgo Biloba can be traced as far as the Jurassic period; it had many species and was a plant that covered several regions. However, due to different changes that happened, it decreased in number and vanished in North America and Europe. Many scientists thought that it was long gone, but Englebert Kaempfer, a German, found this tree in Japan in 1691. It was believed that the seeds of the tree were carried by wind from China wherein it was mostly found in Buddhist temples and monasteries. After the discovery, Kaempfer brought it to North America and Europe in the 1700s.
The Ginkgo Biloba has several medicinal uses. In Chinese medicine, the seeds are mostly used unlike the Westerns who mostly use the leaves. Some of the earliest records of the seeds being used were in 1578 in a book made by Li Sheh-chin’s Pen Tsao Kang Mu translated as “Great Herbal”. It was used in the past to aid in digestion and to heal a variety of other sicknesses which include cough, asthma, and even cancer. It was also used to be useful in skin treatment.
The seeds by the Japanese were eaten raw or also roasted. The Western community began to take a closer look into the medicinal benefits of this plant by the 1950s. It is now one of the medicines that North America and Europe are prescribing to their countrymen. There are additional records that quack doctors must have used the wood of the plant to create charms and for other treatments.
