Maidenhair tree is a very strong natural product that has become very popular in recent years. The amount of advantaged its intake provides make it the ideal natural medicine to treat different illnesses. The ones who used it first are the Japanese, and now the maidenhair tree products are used all over the world.

Apart from all the good things the intake of ginkgo products will produce on your body, you need to take into account that it can, at times, cause a few unwanted effects as well. Women who are expecting a baby and those who are breast-feeding their babies are at risk of getting unwanted effects if they take ginkgo products. During the gestation period you need to be extremely careful with the things you take in order not to hurt your baby. There have been countless researches to discover how the intake of ginkgo can affect the mother and the baby not only during the gestation period but also during infant feeding.

Doctors recommend pregnant women and women who are breast-feeding their babies not to take ginkgo products to avoid any complications. In a recent research, scientists discovered that women who use ginkgo products during the gestation period can have a hight level of colchicine (an alkaloid) in the vascular structure that would inevitably affect the unborn baby. This research firmly stated that the intake of maidenhair tree products during gestation or infant feeding can harm the normal evolution of the unborn baby or of the newly born baby as well.

The products containing ginkgo do not have toxic substances and it had never been reported that the use of ginkgo products during the gestation and infant feeding periods should be avoided. However, the tree does contain something similar to colchicine but it has never been stated that this could be harmful for people. Therefore, as the conclusions cannot be proved more research into this area should be carried out. The best thing for you to do is to check with your doctor to see what his opinion on the matter is.

One thing to remember is that if you are not expecting a baby or breast-feeding one, you do not need to worry about putting yourself at risk because the use of ginkgo products will provide you with a great natural solution to treat many different health conditions.
