Ginkgo Cinnamon tea possesses a multitude of health benefits, thereby making this drink a good herbal supplement. Ginkgo is useful in helping treat a plethora of diseases (Alzheimer’s, dementia, Raynaud’s). It can also help reduce premenstrual syndrome (PMS), improve memory, and relieve anxiety.
A few benefits of cinnamon include weight loss aid, anti-aging, anti-bacterial, and anti-cancer properties, blood thinner, cold/flu relief, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) remedy. When working in conjunction, Ginkgo and Cinnamon can better serve to be a source of antioxidants, memory boost, stimulate blood circulation, and thin the blood.
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba; in Chinese, Korean and Japanese: 杏, pinyin romanization: yín xìng, Revised Romanization: "eun haeng", Hepburn romanization: ichō or ginnan, Vietnamese: bạch quả), acceptable variant gingko and also known as the maidenhair tree, is a unique species of tree with no living relatives. The ginkgo is a living fossil, recognisably similar to fossils dating back 270 million years. 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.
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is one of the oldest living tree species. It is also tops in scientific studies and in purchases. In Europe and the United States, ginkgo supplements are among the best-selling herbal medications.
Ginkgo has a long history of being used in traditional medicine to treat blood disorders and improve memory, and it's best known today as way to potentially keep your memory sharp. There is some scientific evidence to back that up. Laboratory studies have shown that ginkgo improves blood circulation by opening up blood vessels and making blood less sticky. It's also an antioxidant.
For these reasons, ginkgo may improve vein and eye health. Ginkgo may help treat dementia (including Alzheimer's disease) and intermittent claudication, or poor circulation in the legs. It may also protect memory in older adults.
Some people use ginkgo to treat sexual performance problems. It is sometimes used to reverse the sexual performance problems that can accompany taking certain antidepressants called SSRIs.
Ginkgo leaves have two types of chemicals (flavonoids and terpenoids) that are antioxidants. In your body, harmful particles called free radicals build up as you age, and may contribute to heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Antioxidants like those found in ginkgo fight off free radicals, and stop them from damaging DNA and other cells.
MEDICINAL USES AND INDICATIONS
Based on various studies, ginkgo is used for the following:
a) Dementia and Alzheimer's disease
Ginkgo is widely used in Europe for treating dementia. At first, doctors thought it helped because it improves blood flow to the brain. Now more study suggests it may protect nerve cells that are damaged in Alzheimer's disease. A number of studies have found that ginkgo has a positive effect on memory and thinking in people with Alzheimer's or vascular dementia.Studies suggest that ginkgo may help people with Alzheimer's disease:
• Improve thinking, learning, and memory (cognitive function)
• Have an easier time doing day to day activities
• Improve social behavior
• Have fewer feelings of depression
b) Intermittent Claudication
Because ginkgo improves blood flow, it has been studied in people with intermittent claudication, or pain caused by reduced blood flow to the legs. People with intermittent claudication have a hard time walking without feeling extreme pain. An analysis of eight studies showed that people taking ginkgo tended to walk about 34 meters further than those taking a placebo.
One preliminary study found that ginkgo might help relieve anxiety. People with generalized anxiety disorder and adjustment disorder that took a specific extract of ginkgo had fewer anxiety symptoms than those who took placebo.
One small study found that people with glaucoma who took 120 mg of ginkgo daily for 8 weeks had improvements in their vision.
e) Memory and Thinking
Ginkgo is widely touted as a "brain herb." Some studies show that it does help improve memory in people with dementia. It's not as clear whether ginkgo helps memory in healthy people who have normal, age-related memory loss. Some studies have found slight benefits, while other studies have found it didn't help at all. Some studies have found that ginkgo helps improve memory and thinking in young and middle-aged people who are healthy.
f) Macular Degeneration
The flavonoids found in ginkgo may help stop or reduce some problems with the retina, the back part of the eye. Macular degeneration, often called age-related macular degeneration or AMD, is an eye disease that affects the retina. The number one cause of blindness in the Unites States, AMD is a degenerative eye disease that gets worse as time goes on. Some studies suggest that ginkgo may help preserve vision in those with AMD.
g) Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Two studies with a somewhat complicated dosing schedule found that ginkgo helped reduced PMS symptoms. Women in the studies took ginkgo beginning on day 16 of their menstrual cycle and stopped taking it after day 5 of their next cycle, then took it again on day 16.
h) Helps to treat sexual performance problems
i) Raynaud's Phenomenon
One well-designed study found that people with Raynaud's phenomenon who took ginkgo over a 10-week period had fewer symptoms than those who took placebo. More studies are needed.

The Benefits of Cinnamon Tea go far beyond its Soothing, Exotic Taste!
You can enjoy the many benefits of cinnamon tea whether you love a pure cinnamon tea or prefer it blended/added to other teas. Sweet, soothing, spicy, and a little bit exotic... Cinnamon is versatile and much loved, a favorite not only in sweet and savory dishes, but in tea, as well!
Cassia cinnamon has been used in traditional medicine for many centuries. Cassia or Saigon cinnamon has been tested for its ability to lower blood sugar levels. It can also be effective in treating menstrual cramps, certain types of cancer, kidney problems, vomiting, flatulence, bed-wetting, stomach and muscle cramps, bronchitis, impotence, etc. While some research has been conducted, further evidence is required to rate its effectiveness for these conditions.
The well-known spice is famous for its ease in blending with a variety of flavors - with other teas, spices, fruits, and herbs - to create intoxicating tea blends. Cinnamon tea is chock full of good things - for your body, your mind, and even for romance!
Health Benefits of Cinnamon Tea
i) Bad cholesterol levels too high? Lower your cholesterol - and protect your heart health - with cinnamon tea. Research tells us that consuming cinnamon tea may help lower bad cholesterol level
ii) Cinnamon has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Cinnamon fights viruses (such as cold and flu viruses), inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria (like E. coli or the bacteria that causes UTIs), and combats infections (such as medication-resistant yeast infections caused by the fungus Candida albicans).
iii) Cinnamon is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.Chronic inflammation has been linked to many health concerns and harmful diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, cancer, diabetes, infertility, obesity, PCOS, IBS, Crohn's, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Cinnamon tea is a natural, tasty way to fight and protect against the potentially destructive effects of inflammation.
iv) Cinnamon is filled with potent antioxidants - more than almost all other spices and herbs. Cinnamon's antioxidant levels are comparable with other high-antioxidant foods, as well - for example, just one teaspoon of ground cinnamon has as many antioxidants as 1/2 cup of blueberries! It's essential that we include antioxidant-rich foods and beverages in our diet, because antioxidants provide us with so many health benefits... They protect us from the effects of free radicals, prevent and fight chronic diseases (like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis), and reduce those signs of aging we dislike so much (like wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity)!
v) Cinnamon improves circulation. Poor circulation can affect the body in all sorts of ways, from varicose veins to constipation to painful joints. Cinnamon tea is naturally warming and helps to increase blood flow. Cinnamon is a natural blood thinner as well.
vi) Reduce swelling and the aches and pains of arthritis and rheumatism with a soothing cup of cinnamon tea.
vii) Cinnamon tea's reputation as a weight-loss tea is growing - with good reason. Not only do the antioxidants in cinnamon boost metabolism, but cinnamon also helps your digestive tract work the way it should (essential for weight loss - and for feeling good, too!).
viii) Cinnamon tea stabilizes blood sugar levels, so you feel satiated and have fewer cravings. Another benefit - cinnamon is a flavorful addition to your diet and, when your food tastes good, you'll feel satisfied sooner and eat less (meaning fewer calories going in!)
ix) Ward off a chill with cinnamon tea. Are your hands and feet always cold? Does a brisk, chilly wind have you burying your icy nose behind a scarf? There's nothing like cinnamon tea to warm you when you feel chilled!
**Some General Precautions for Cinnamon Tea**
Very high quantities of cinnamon may be toxic, so, as a general rule, it's best not to consume excessive amounts of cinnamon tea for extended periods of time.
