Gotu Kola General Information
Gotu Kola is a slender perennial found throughout tropical regions of the world. It has kidney-shaped leaves with dark purple flower petals. In Sri Lanka the elephants fed extensively on the plant, which gave this plant its reputation of being a longevity herb. It was believed that eating a few leaves everyday strengthened and revitalized tired minds and bodies. Gotu Kola is widely used in India to promote wound healing and slow the progress of leprosy. Gotu Kola contains asiatic acid, asiaticoside and madecassic acid which stimulates collagen synthesis, a key element in skin repair. It also aids in the elimination of excess fluids, decreases fatigue and depression, increases sex drive and stimulates the central nervous system. Throughout history Gotu Kola has been used as a memory herb, and it is said to prolong life, enhance sexual potency, and increase energy.

Gotu Kola Uses & Scientific Evidence For
In the 1970s, Italian and other European researchers found evidence that Gotu Kola significantly improved the symptoms of varicose veins such as the overall discomfort, tiredness, and swelling; however, it is not thought to do much for the appearance of veins that are badly damaged. It has been suggested that hemorrhoid sufferers could use Gotu Kola for the treatment of their symptoms since hemorrhoids are a type of varicose vein. Gotu Kola is also used to improve memory and can be beneficial to Alzheimer’s patients. It is also still used to heal wounds and alleviate the symptoms of scleroderma. This plant has also been used to help treat high blood pressure, abscesses, rheumatism, fever, ulcers, leprosy, skin eruptions nervous disorders and jaundice. The fresh leaves can be given to children for dysentery. An extract of the oil is used to promote hair growth. Gotu Kola is known to thin the blood, and, in large dosages, can help lower blood sugar levels.
