Gotu Kola benefits for skin health and to help balance mood swings

If you’re looking for a plant-based all round skin booster then gotu kola should definitely be on your top most wanted list.

The ancient Ayurvedic plant centella asiatica (Gotu Kola) is a member of the Apiaceae family of plants which includes parsley, carrots and celery. It takes on the nature of a weed and has round-lobed leaves with small pink flowers. It grows in the wetlands of Asia and is native to Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China, Japan and South Africa. Gotu kola is often called centella or pennywort.

Gotu Kola gives great benefits for skin health and helps to balance mood swings among other things.

You’ll be amazed by how many benefits this herb has.

Gotu kola is a popular herb and widely used in Europe, however, it’s quite unknown in the UK and America. The natives of Ceylon (Now Sri-Lanka) believed that the longevity of elephants came from their love of eating the leaves of the gotu kola plant.

It is rich in various alkaloids, glycosides, phenolic compounds, flavonoids, triterpenoids and saponins (Chippada et al’, 2011)

What are the health benefits of Gotu Kola?

Research has linked this incredible herb to:

  • Improving skin firmness, elasticity.
  • Improving circulation.
  • Reducing the appearance of scar tissue.
  • Reduction of oedema and water retention.
  • Stress reduction.

Gotu Kola acts as an antioxidant to help reduce inflammatory conditions and protect cells. It has been associated to many health benefits including anxiety and wound healing.

It contains youth-boosting, skin healing properties. It supports the strength and flexibility of blood vessels and tones and firms the skin.

Studies revealed that gotu kola has shown to boost the production of collagen type I and type III, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

In 2013, researchers linked gotu kola to easing anxiety problems, however, more studies are needed to confirm this.

Skin Perfecting Complex contains Gotu Kola to support skin health and aid collagen production. It has additional benefits of calming the skin for a healthy glow.

Gotu kola is a natural ingredient and should be suitable for most people. If however, you have the following conditions then we would advise that you don’t take it.

Don’t take Gotu kola if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding
  • Are under the age of 18
  • Have a history of skin cancer
  • Have surgery booked within the next 2 weeks.
  • Have liver disease.
