Tincture made by a process of hydro-ethanolic percolation, with a ratio of 1 part Ginkgo Leaf to 4 parts liquid. Liquid comprises of 75% water and 25% sugar beet derived ethanol.

Ginkgo biloba, commonly known as ginkgo or gingko, also known as the ginkgo tree or the maidenhair tree, is the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct.

It is found in fossils dating back 270 million years. making it the oldest surviving tree species on earth.

Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated and was introduced early to human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food.

They rarely suffer disease problems, even in urban conditions, and are attacked by few insects.  For this reason, and for their general beauty, ginkgos are excellent urban and shade trees, and are widely planted along many streets.
