What Gotu kola herb Is:

Don't assume anything simply from the name of this low-lying herb, which sports umbrella-like leaves on stalks ascending from creeping stems that hug the earth. It is not related to the cola nut of the chocolate family. Gotu kola, which grows in tropical Africa, America, Asia, and Australia, is part of the parsley family. Any go-to-it restorative effect it imparts does not come from caffeine. An ancient Ayurvedic medicine also dispensed in China, Australia, Indonesia, the South Pacific, and southern Africa, gotu kola is used topically and internally to rejuvenate and perpetuate both brain and body. As herbal observers noted in ages gone by, elephants like to eat gotu kola's semicircular leaves. We all know that elephants live long and never forget. Science has since suggested that those elephants might be on the right track: Experiments show that the plant does improve memory.

Gotu kola herb has been used as a medicine for thousands of years and has a reputation as an anti-ageing herb. It has wound-healing and sedative properties, and also improves mental function.
