Gotu Kola Benefits
Controlling Blood Pressure:
Gotu kola is a rich source of beneficial bioactive chemicals that help to regulate blood pressure and reduce swelling. Its regular use also helps to improve collagen production which is greatly beneficial for skin problems and the wound-healing process.
Treating Burns and Stretch Marks:
Centella asiatica is being used for the treatment of poor circulation, burns, stretch marks, and scars. Terpenoids present in the Gotu kola improve collagen production and thus help to heal the existing stretch marks. Topical application of its extract various times a day helps to treat the affected areas. However, patch testing before any topical medication is greatly recommended to avoid any problems.
Scientific studies have shown the beneficial effects for the detoxification of kidneys and liver. An animal-based study has shown that it can be used for suppressing the effects of isoniazid antibiotics used to prevent and treat tuberculosis.
Boosting Cognitive Functions:
The use of the extract along with folic acid helps to improve cognitive functioning. It is not only helpful for improving cognitive function but also improves memory. The effects of Gotu kola extract have been tested on young and old mice for improving learning and memory.
Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease:
Gotu kola has the significant potential to improve nerve functioning, and memory, and treat Alzheimer’s disease. Positive effects of its extract have been observed on behavioral abnormalities and sudden changes in the mice.
Lab studies have shown the modest effects of protecting brain cells from a build-up of toxic compounds and toxicity. Thus, it can also offer good protection from plaque due to Alzheimer’s disease.
Reducing Stress and Anxiety:
Results of animal-based studies have shown that this traditional herb is helpful in reducing stress and anxiety and helps male mice to sleep better than were deprived of sleep for 72 hours. Less anxiety behavior was observed in the mice after treatment with the Gotu kola extract for five consecutive days.
Other than this less oxidative damage and more locomotor activity was also observed. Anti-anxiety levels of different herbal medicines were compared and Gotu kola was shown to have acute anti-anxiety and stress-relieving effects.
Improved Circulation and Reduced Swelling:
Regular and optimal use is helpful in treating tied circulation, ankle swelling, and fluid retention problems. Research studies have shown that people who used its extract before air traveling experienced less ankle swelling and fluid retention.
