Praised for centuries by Ayurvedic medicine, Gotu Kola is a small, herbaceous plant, which has been used to promote longevity by yogis and doctors. By boosting blood flow to the brain it can help raise your energy levels, improve memory and generally augment cognitive function.
Also known as the Centella Asiatica plant, Swanson Superior Herbs Gotu Kola is a small annual plant from the Mackinlayaceae family from the wetlands of Asia. Its leaves are round and lushly green with white veins streaking through them,causing some to observe their similarity to the shape of a brain.
For those amongst us who believe in life imitating art (or in this instance life imitating nature), it is the Gotu Kola's ability to revitalise the brain that has seen it held in such regard by Ayurveda and Ancient Chinese medicine for centuries.
Primarily regarded through Asia as a longevity herb initially, Gotu Kola was used by the Daoist master and renowned herbalist Li Ching-Yuen prolifically. And while local records which state that he lived to the age of 256 years old might be a little wide of the truth, the message remains the same - that Swanson Superior Herbs Gotu Kola is incredibly good for you.
Grown throughout the Himalayas, Swanson Superior Herbs Gotu Kola has been used to improve meditation by yogis as it is said to develop the crown chakra - the central energy point at the peak of the body, where it can help to balance both sides of the brain.
Whether or not you buy into the more apocryphal stories about Swanson Superior Herbs Gotu Kola, the truth remains in the science - it really can help you improve mental processing and develop the memory.
Also known as Pennywort, Swanson Superior Herbs Gotu Kola has, at its peak, also been referred to as the 'fountain of youth' and when you take a look inside its chemical makeup, you can begin to see why…
