We keep repeating it - but hard scientific evidence for the benefits of herbal medicines is conflicting. But there is no denying the centuries of knowledge and wisdom built up around the world - not just China - on the health and remedial benefits of plants and natural remedies.

A case in point is our favourite ingredient - Ginkgo Biloba.


It has been used for centuries for its perceived beneficial impact on memory and the ageing process among others.

And if anecdotal evidence arises from anecdote - then "Ginkgo?! - I've been taking it for as along as I can remember!" serves as a case in point.


Many of the issues surrounding natural remedies and traditional Chinese medicine arise from poor science and overstated claims.


Hopefully we can give you some general information to help you decide.


As always, Read the instructions - and if it doesn't have any, don't use it!
