Gotu Kola dried leaves | Siamy Natural Herbal Drink for health

Gotu Kola (Centélla asiática) also known as Asiatic pennyworth or “bua-bok” in Thai language is a flowering plant family Apiaceae native to wetlands in Asia.

Gotu Kola can have remarkable effects on the body when consumed. Centella has a positive impact on the circulatory system, thereby oxygenating more of the brain and allowing cognition to improve. The antioxidant effects of this herb are also somewhat responsible, as they can stimulate neural pathways by eliminating plaque and free radicals from the brain. It’s why Gotu Kola is often informally called “memory herb”.

In Asian countries Centella commonly consumed in fresh raw form. At the local markets you can find bunches of it next to parsley, dill and other edible herbs.
Gotu kola is used not only for improving memory and intelligence, but also for fatigue, anxiety, depression, psychiatric disorders and Alzheimer’s disease. Other uses include wound healing, trauma, and circulation problems (venous insufficiency) including varicose veins, and blood clots in the legs.

Along with other Siamy products when used regularly, it helps promote a healthier life style and well-being.
