– Mind – Gotu Kola has been a pivotal herb in the Ayurvedic practice of eastern herbal medicine. It has been used in meditation practices due to its ability to increase circulation, which allows more oxygen to the Brain which helps to calm the mind and improve neurological functions and reduce stress and anxiety.
Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) is native to India, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and South Africa. A member of the Apiaceae family, Gotu kola is also known as Brahmi in Aryuvedic medicine, and is widely used in Chinese traditions too. The Hosa and the Mfengu tribes in East Africa have used it both as a food and a medicine for many years. Gotu Kola has been used to ease the mind and calm the body in meditation practices. It has also been proven to help with symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency extending to poor circulation. The saponins (asiatic acid) in Gotu Kola appear to promote neuronal growth and protect against glutamate induced cell damage.
