Gotu Kola (Indian Pennywort) is a small herbaceous plant native to parts of Asia, where it is known as the “herb of longevity“. As this plant is known to absorb any heavy metals and toxins from the soil and water in which it is grown, it is particularly important to ensure that it is grown organically.  Our Gotu Kola comes from India and is certified Organic by the Soil Association of Great Britain.

Gotu Kola is a potent antioxidant, best known for its supportive effect on cognitive function and memory.  It is believed to be particularly useful in improving brain health and function in older adults, and has been used in the treatment of stroke patients and those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Often used to reduce anxiety and stress, Gotu Kola is thought to have antidepressant effects and may help to ease the insomnia that accompanies these conditions.

Due to its positive effects on connective tissues and collagen production, Gotu Kola has been shown to help improve and prevent varicose veins.  It is also used to improve the appearance of stretch marks, and is a boost to skin health generally, improving wound healing, increasing moisture and protecting from environmental damage.
