Gotu Kola is a medicinal herb and vegetable of Asia, a renowned source of longevity. It is thoroughly documented in the medical community for its extraordinary abilities to protect and rejuvenate the nervous system. It is popular, and highly advised, with students for learning, memory retention, and adapting to stress in times of added stress and sleep deprivation. In addition to enhancement of cognition and neuronal functions, it is a powerful antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and contains healing properties that benefit skin, liver, bone, tooth, and kidney health.
Gotu kola has an incredible ability to stimulate nerve growth by elongating and growing the branches of dendrites in neurons, the tree-like extensions at the ends of neurons. Dendrites transmit electrical impulses and direct communication throughout the entire body. It also protects neurons from apoptosis, or programmed cell death. The variety of factors that can influence neuronal death include environmental toxins, cardiovascular issues, infection, genetics, and injury to the brain or nervous system. Gotu kola has shown fantastic results in studies on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, memory retention, learning ability, epilepsy, anxiety, and depression for its ability to produce neuronal growth and protect nerve cells from toxic effects.
Gotu kola has shown to protect brain cells from toxins and genetics that can lead to buildup of plaque, a factor in Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases. These effects extend to contact of heavy metals and additives in food, helping to remove free radicals and repair damaged cells that may be interfering with mood, functioning, and clarity of mind. It has shown to relieve nervous system inflammation and increases cognitive ability, especially memory and retention, making it popular with students and recovering stroke victims.
Benefits in other areas of the body include skin healing of burns, scratches, and small wounds, increase of collagen to reduce stretch marks and scars, eczema, lupus, and psoriasis. It contributes to cleansing of toxins in the kidneys and liver, and even the prevention of certain pathogenic bacterias of the mouth. Gotu kola is considered a heal-all with endless healing properties including antiviral, antifungal, anticonvulsant, natural sedative, and other seemingly infinite healing properties. Similar but to a lesser degree as our Coated Silver, it may clear out existing pathogens that interfere with optimal functioning while protecting from invasion.
