GOTU KOLA (also known as Centella asiatica or Hydrocotyle asiatica) has long been an important natural remedy in Chinese, Ayurvedic and other primarily Asian traditional medicine systems. Growing abundantly in swampy wetlands, this perennial groundcover has a particularly long list of traditional uses, but is perhaps most renowned for its ability to promote longevity – so much so that gotu kola is commonly referred to as ‘the fountain of youth’. As a nootropic (or ‘smart drug’) and adaptogen, gotu kola is also known for its ability to enhance cognitive function, rebuild the nervous system, and reduce stress and anxiety.
Gotu kola has demonstrated the ability to significantly improve memory, intelligence, cognitive function, and concentration. Being ‘centering’ rather than ‘stimulating’ in nature, gotu kola provides a tangible cognitive boost without the somewhat ‘raw’ or ‘imbalanced’ side-effects of stimulants.
Gotu kola is highly rejuvenative. It helps to improve blood quality and regulate circulation, and is especially useful in the treatment of blood vessel disorders such as venous insufficiency (i.e. varicose veins, varicose ulcers, leg oedema). It has also been shown to repair and restore axons, which are used to transmit nerve impulses throughout the brain and body.
Gotu kola has demonstrated the ability to increase calmness, contentedness and alertness, lift the mood, and reduce symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, stress, and depression. It also has a long history of use versus insomnia and to enhance sleep quality. The ability of gotu kola to produce heightened states of awareness (i.e. ‘flow states’) has long been recognised by monks, yogis, sages, and others practising meditation.
Gotu kola excels as a neuroprotective anti-oxidant (i.e. it neutralises damaging free radicals) and protects the brain from neurotoxins like lead, arsenic, aluminium, and monosodium glutamate (MSG). Gotu kola activates the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that encourages the formation of new brain cells. It also increases nerve growth factor (NGF), which stimulates the growth of new nerve cells and protects existing nerve cells.
Gotu kola is rich in nutrients (including the phytochemicals beta-carotene, camphol and campesetol) and minerals (like calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc), plus vitamins (C, B-1, B-2 and B-3) and saponins. Saponins have a regulatory effect on a wide spectrum of bodily systems, including blood pressure and blood sugar levels, along with the immune, reproductive, endocrine, and, central nervous systems.
Gotu kola has been utilised for the healing of wounds (including ulcers, abscesses and burns) and the treatment of connective tissue disorders like scleroderma and psoriasis.
The anti-inflammatory properties of gotu kola have also contributed to its use against rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, along with other joint diseases like psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.
