Why Ginkgo & Hawthorn Combo?
Lots of reasons. 1. Our hawthorn berries grow in Albania and are wild-harvested by local residents who collect early on warm, sunny days in the dry hills. After harvest, the fruit dries naturally in the sun. With this employment, these hard-working people are able to provide for their families. 2. Our ginkgo leaf and extract, and our olive leaf extract are certified vegan. 3. Nature’s Sunshine QA and Purchasing team members have personally visited our olive leaf supplier in Spain and have verified their commitment to quality ingredients.
The Story behind Ginkgo & Hawthorn Combo. Hawthorn berries have been used in traditional medicine for nearly 2,000 years. Native Americans consumed them for heart and stomach issues and as a food source. In the 1800s, US medical practitioners employed these berries for circulatory and respiratory health concerns. The ginkgo tree is one of the oldest in the world! And ginkgo leaf has been a big part of Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Today, this fan-shaped leaf is used to support the cardiovascular system and the brain. Records show that the Egyptians used olive leaf in the mummification process. Much more recently, Italians have used a tincture of olive leaves traditionally for immune support. Moroccans and Brazilians have used olive leaf for blood pressure and blood glucose modulation. And Tunisian folk medicine recommends olive leaves for mouth and ear concerns.
