Why is There a Caution About Taking Ginkgo and Aspirin Together?

Question: I would like to know why we're being told not to take ginkgo and aspirin at the same time. I saw this on the TV. Thank you for any help.

Ginkgo biloba is tops for promoting circulation and brain health. However, its mode of action may produce a blood thinning effect. This action is desirable for many people concerned with cardiovascular health, too. However, if a person is also taking aspirin, often for the same reason, the results may be too extreme during the time of surgery or if a wound is sustained, as the blood may not be able to sufficiently coagulate.

You can read much more about Ginkgo biloba on the website
