Varicose veins are not only unaesthetic. They pose a medical risk because they favor the appearance of inflammation of the veins and thrombosis.
Ginkgo Biloba L.
Ginkgo Biloba is the oldest known tree species - its age is estimated at over 200 million years. This tree is the last representative of a whole class of seedless plants that have existed since the time of the dinosaurs. According to models from northeastern China, modern ginkgo has very few differences with that of the Jurassic period. During the Pliocene (5.3-1.8 million years ago), the ginkgo population sharply declined and remained in only a small area of central China.
Ginkgo is a deciduous tree, up to 20-35 m in height, and up to 2500 years old. The leaves are vesicular, 5-15 cm long. The seed is 1.5-2 cm long, in a 2-3cm-thick flesh-like sheath, which contains butyric acid, which adds the odorous odor of the fruit.
