Comment .it was recommended to me by a friend . but did not know what I just found about it .
Q. can I change my life through it , if yes an assistance will be appreciated.
Hi Max. Thanks for this article, but there's a point of confusion: Your recipe calls for 50g of leaves brewed as a decoction in 1L of water. I have a fist-sized bag of ginkgo leaf here that weighs in around 75g; so I can see 50g is a very large volume of ginkgo leaf to brew into only 1L of water. It would be a very strong tea at this ratio. Your recommended dosage of 'two cups a day' means your 1L of Very Strong Ginkgo Tea would be consumed in just about two days.

Readers should beware here - if taken as directed in the article, the reader will be consuming a massive amount of ginkgo at once.

I would think this rate of ginkgo consumption is problematically high, so it might help to clarify the usage instructions, or take another look at the brewing ratio, in order to eliminate the confusion. Thanks for your efforts!

Hi Daniel,

50 g would be a little strong, we have reviewed the ingredient amounts and amended them accordingly. Thank you so much for bringing it to our attention!
