Gotu Kola is an herb native to India, Indonesia, Iran and all the way throughout Asia. It is used traditionally in Ayurvedic medicine to promote meditative states and also to rejuvenate and detoxify the body. Gotu Kola has been used traditionally to help with memory retention, cognition, and critical thinking, making it an ideal herb for Nootropic function!
An interesting modern application of this herb is in the Decalcification of the Pineal Gland. Gotu Kola is said to be one of the most powerful herbs in these regards. The topic of Pineal Calcification is somewhat controversial, but if it is indeed the case that our pineals are becoming inactive due to contaminants in our foods and water, then by all means we need herbs to combat this!
Gotu Kola is great to use in teas, consumed whole, or made into tinctures.
It has a noticeable alertness-increasing quality to it, and is also very calming to the body and mind. Great to take in the morning in place of a caffeinated beverage, and also great for stressful work. Gotu Kola has found a special place in our hearts here at Eternity in a Box, and we hope that this plant wows you all as well 🙂
