Gotu Kola - Improved Brain Function
Gotu kola is a perennial herb found in Africa, India, China and other parts of southeast Asia. A member of the parsley family, gotu kola has been part of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years. Despite its familiar sounding name, gotu kola contains no cola or caffeine but it is a rich source of vitamin K.
The active compound in gotu kola is triterpenoids. In general, gotu kola is prized for its perceived calming effect and support of the central nervous system as well as positive effects on circulation. Gotu kola is known to enhance brain and peripheral circulation. Some people believe it may improve memory. Gotu kola appears to relax the central nervous system resulting in its calming effect. At the same time it stimulates the brain resulting in improved concentration.
Positive Effects on Circulation
Gotu kola can also have positive effects on peripheral circulation. This results in improvements in varicose veins, leg cramps, and leg swellings and decreases poor blood circulation in the legs. Gotu kola decreased vein hardening and helped improve blood flow through veins in 80% of patients in a study conducted in the late 1980s. Gotu kola may also help wounds heal faster.
