Benefits for health

  • Centella asiatica / Gotu Kola is best known as an adaptogen, or health tonic, which means it reinforces your body, so that it can better cope with stress, anxiety, and fight fatigue more easily.
  • It is also brain stimulant. Several studies have found that Centella asiatica helps to improve memory and understanding.
  • Other research has shown that Centella asiatica has antiviral and antibiotic properties, which help to prevent wound infections. Historically, Centella asiatica has also been used to heal wounds, and treat skin problems such as psoriasis.
  • Finally, Centella asiatica is often used to treat varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency. These two conditions occur when ageing, due to the fact that vessels lose their elasticity. This causes blood pools in the legs and fluid leaks out of the blood vessels. Several studies suggest that Centella asiatica may help reduce swelling and improve blood flow. It was also found to strengthen the walls of capillaries and veins.

How to use it?

Take 1 to 3 capsules per day, preferably during meals.
