Gotu Kola Herb Powder Organic

Botanical Name: Centella asiatica

Common Names: Indian pennywort

Despite its common name, Gotu Kola Herb is not related to the kola nut, contains no caffeine and has no stimulant properties. Quite the contrary, it actually has calming properties.

Gotu Kola Herb, like many quality bulk herbs, is native to the tropical regions of Asia and Africa, particularly Sri Lanka and Madagascar. Traditionally, the leaves of such herbs are dried and steeped in order to create a tea or infusion. It may also be taken powdered in capsule form.

*Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) is an herb in the parsley family. It has a long history of use in the traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine systems.

Gotu kola contains certain chemicals that seem to decrease swelling and blood pressure. It also seems to increase collagen production, which might be helpful for wound healing.

People use gotu kola for burns and poor circulation that can lead to varicose veins. It is also used for scars, stretch marks, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses.*
