Gotu kola is also used for fatigue, anxiety, depression, psychiatric disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, and improving memory and intelligence. Other uses include wound healing, trauma, and circulation problems (venous insufficiency) including varicose veins, and blood clots in the legs.
The tiny gotu kola leaves are used to create a gotu kola infusion, a subtle and soothing herbal infusion that is enjoyed in a number of Asian countries.
In the wetlands of Asia, tiny green crescents, like lily pads growing on land, mark the appearance of gotu kola. Sometimes referred to by names such brahmi, centella or Indian pennywort, gotu kola is a hardy plant, and seems able to grow in abundance wherever moisture can be found. In India, gotu kola is held in high regard as a very spiritual plant. A number of Asian countries use gotu kola as a leafy green vegetable, as well as a common flavouring ingredient for traditional local beverages. Gotu kola infusion is crafted from the leaves of the plant, and offers a subtle, refreshing herbal taste.
Drinking gotu kola is a refreshing way to spice up your day.
Fresh water is essential for brewing a great infusion.
