Gotu kola (Centella asiatica) is a small, leafy green herb that grows in India...
⬊Gotu kola is 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.
⬊Another remarkable benefit of gotu kola is its ability to repair skin cells and boost the health of your skin.
It effectively enhances antioxidant activity in your tissues. This aids in wound healing and skin regeneration. Antioxidants can help neutralize harmful free radicals. These are compounds that accumulate over time to cause oxidative damage and accelerate aging.
Although generally safe when used in suggested serving sizes, some side effects have been reported.
While uncommon, side effects may include headaches, nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and skin irritation. If you experience these or any other adverse reactions after taking gotu kola, you should discontinue use and consult your health care practitioner.
Additionally, most research advises against usage for longer than six weeks and recommends taking a two-week break if using for an extended period of time.
🚫Most also recommend against using gotu kola if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding as its effects have not been studied on infants or children.
Finally, because high doses can act as a sedative, some sources caution against using gotu kola in combination with medications that are used to treat anxiety or sleep disorders.
