Gingko Biloba pesto is the ultimate brain food. Gingko Bilbao leaves are sometimes called living fossils because they have been around since the dinosaur age. A booster for the brain is one of Mother Nature’s own gifts to help improve our cognitive function.
You can use the ginkgo leaves powder from natural food stores, as the leaves are not so easy to acquire in most places. In Naturena, our natural healing center in Portugal, many people from Europe, north and south America have different natural treatments. Dr. Andre Gomes ( Dr. Kamalakant treats patients with distinct electromagnetic technology, colon cleansing, liver and kidney flush, ozone therapies and natural medicine, and vegetarian diet.)
I used the Gingko Biloba leaves to create pesto in Naturena for one of my patients, who was suffering from severe lymphatic cancer. While she stayed there, my first task was to boost her vitality and lift her spirit, knowing that her troubles with low energy were related to multiple personal and family issues.
There are several Ginko Biloba trees in Naturena. I made a healthy Buckwheat pizza with Gingko Biloba pesto that the patients enjoyed during their recovery process. You will positively relish this recipe. Enjoy
