Brain food.

Good brain food to help with the flow of those writing juices is a well known herb called Ginkgo Biloba.
Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba; '銀杏' in Chinese) is a tree native to Asian countries and in Chinese Medicine has been used for thousands of years to sharpen the brain and now they are even using it to help cure patients with neurological and memory loss deseases. It is a great help to the Nervous System and is now widely available in both Eastern Medicine and Health food stores.
It was thought for a long time that Ginkgo was extinct in the wild but they have now found it growing in the Zheijiang province in Eastern China.
There are many culinary functions to the Ginkgo, from the seeds and nuts used in Chinese food to the powders produced to put into energy drinks. It is great against free radicals and so is also used as an anti oxidant to help prevent other deseases.
