Gotu Kola

2 oz.

Gotu kola is a small, herbaceous plant native to Asia. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine systems such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine for its numerous health benefits. Here are some potential health benefits:

Brain Health: Gotu kola is often referred to as a "brain tonic" due to its potential cognitive-enhancing effects. It is believed to improve memory, concentration, and overall brain function, making it beneficial for promoting mental clarity and focus.

Skin Rejuvenation: Gotu kola is rich in antioxidants, including asiaticoside, asiatic acid, and madecassic acid, which help protect the skin from oxidative stress and promote collagen production. It is used in skincare products to improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and promote wound healing.

Stress Reduction: Gotu kola has adaptogenic properties, meaning it helps the body adapt to stress and maintain balance. It may help reduce stress, anxiety, and nervous tension, promoting a sense of calmness and relaxation.

Wound Healing: Gotu kola has been traditionally used topically to promote wound healing and reduce scarring. It stimulates the production of collagen and increases blood circulation to the skin, facilitating tissue repair and regeneration.

Directions: add one teaspoon of gotu kola to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 


FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
