Gotu kola centella asiatica extract (Centella asiatica) has been used to treat many conditions for thousands of years in India, China, and Indonesia. It was used to heal wounds, improve mental clarity, and treat skin conditions such as leprosy and psoriasis.
Extract centella asiatica has been important in the medicinal systems of central Asia for centuries. In Sri Lanka, it was purported to prolong life, as the leaves are commonly eaten by elephants. Numerous skin diseases, ranging from poorly healing wounds to leprosy, have been treated with gotu kola. Gotu kola also has a historical reputation for boosting mental activity and for helping a variety of illnesses, such as high blood pressure, rheumatism, fever, and nervous disorders. Some of its common applications in Ayurvedic medicine include heart disease, water retention, hoarseness, bronchitis, and coughs in children, and as a poultice for many skin conditions.

Gotu Kola Centella Asiatica Extract Benefits:
1. GOTU KOLA STIMULATES GROWTH OF NEW BRAIN CELLS
Gotu kola centella asiatica extract activates the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a protein that acts like fertilizer for your brain, encouraging new brain cell formation. In this way, it works similarly to the “other brahmi,” bacopa.
It takes a few weeks for gotu kola’s effects to kick in and it seems to work by encouraging dendrite branching, increasing brain plasticity, and facilitating communication between brain cells.
Extract centella asiatica also increases nerve growth factor (NGF), a protein which stimulates the growth of new nerve cells and safeguards existing ones.
2. GOTU KOLA INCREASES BLOOD FLOW
Gotu kola centella asiatica extract is well regarded for its ability to improve circulation. This is important because maintaining optimal brain circulation is one of the most important things you can do to keep your brain healthy and fit.A steady flow of blood to the brain delivers life-giving oxygen and nutrients and removes carbon dioxide, toxins, and other waste products.
3. GOTU KOLA PROTECTS THE BRAIN FROM DAMAGE
Most plants have some antioxidant capacity, but extract centella asiatica excels as a neuroprotective antioxidant.Gotu kola protects your brain from damage incurred by the assaults of everyday life.
Studies show that it protects the brain from neurotoxins like lead, arsenic, aluminum, and glutamate. Glutamate is an important neurotransmitter, but, in excess, it actually kills brain cells.Glutamate is also found in some foods, especially those that contain added monosodium glutamate (MSG).
4. GOTU KOLA ALLEVIATES STRESS, ANXIETY, AND DEPRESSION
Research indicates that gotu kola centella asiatica extract increases levels of the feel-good neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, while reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
By bringing balance to these brain chemicals, gotu kola can help alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression.Additionally, gotu kola protects the brain from inflammation.Chronic inflammation of the brain is now thought to be an underlying cause of depression.In human studies, gotu kola increased calmness, contentedness, and alertness by 100% and significantly reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.
It has been shown to lower symptoms of anxiety and stress in persons with generalized anxiety disorder.Gotu kola significantly reduces the startle response caused by sudden noises within 30-60 minutes after ingestion.Since the acoustic startle response is a reliable way to tell if someone is anxious, this is another indicator that this herbal remedy may be useful for treating anxiety.
5. GOTU KOLA HELPS YOU SLEEP
Getting adequate sleep is one of the best things you can do for your brain.Researchers have found that one bad night of sleep can impair your mental faculties as much as being drunk. Chronic insomnia is a common modern malady, but the usual solution, sleep medication, is a bad idea since it robs you of restorative sleep and can cause significant memory loss.
The popular sleep drug Ambien has been called “the amnesia drug” and sends thousands of people to the emergency room every year. Gotu kola has been used as a natural sleep aid for thousands of years.Traditionally, gotu kola tea is sweetened with a little honey as an Ayurvedic remedy for insomnia.
6. GOTU KOLA IMPROVES MEMORY AND MOOD IN ALZHEIMER’S PATIENTS
Extract centella asiatica can enhance mood and cognition in both healthy seniors and those with Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer's patients have significantly reduced levels of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter strongly associated with memory and learning. Alzheimer's drugs like Aricept work by blocking the breakdown of acetylcholine.
7. VITAMIN E + GOTU KOLA: A BRAIN-ENHANCING DUO
Vitamin E is known mostly as a heart-healthy vitamin, but it’s equally important for your brain.This fat-soluble vitamin slows down age-related mental decline, particularly when paired with vitamin C. When taken together, “E + C” is linked to memory improvement and reduced risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia. Gotu kola shows similar synergistic effects with vitamin E, making “E + gotu kola” another powerful brain-enhancing combination.
