I am researching what is in Shakeology. When I started this process I was researching the ingredients of Vanilla Shakeology.
I have searched a few ingredients from the Vanilla Shakeology bag and so far, they all seem pretty beneficial to me. The next ingredient is something I have never heard of before: Ginkgo.
Ginkgo is in the herb family.
It is used in the thinking disorders, such as depression or Lyme disease.
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 has been tried for eye problems including glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Ginkgo is also used for those individuals with Alzheimer's.
It also helps with asthma, bronchitis, and fatigue.
Ginkgo improves blood flow circulation that may help with eyes, ears, legs performing better.
A few fun facts about the tree Ginkgo is that it can last up to a few thousand years, which is the roughly oldest tree around! Now thats impressive.
About 50 pounds of dried Ginkgo leaves produce the medicinal form.
Female tree produce fruit like the male trees do but they produce a foul odor. YUCK.
Well just another little bit of information about an ingredient in Shakeology :)
I am coming to realize that this stuff is VERY valuable.
Each individual ingredient alone can help with so many issues in someones life, and to put them all together and tested by scientists with Shakeology it is found to be a more than beneficial product.
Thank you for reading and I hope to have my next ingredient up sometime in the near future!
