Were you looking for information about Ginkgo? Gingkgo is a common misspelling of ginkgo.
Ginkgo (ginkgo biloba) is an herbal supplement claimed to be beneficial for improving memory and mental functioning. It is believed to have "blood-thinning" properties and antioxidant effects, and may also help to prevent cell damage caused by beta-amyloid proteins (which may contribute to Alzheimer's disease). Since some people are more likely than others to experience problems due to supplements, you should talk to your healthcare provider before taking ginkgo if you have diabetes, infertility, or a bleeding disorder.
