OVERVIEW: 

Gotu kola is a leafy green herb of the parsley family. This medicinal plant is known as the “herb of longevity,” Gotu kola is often 

combined with other herbs and spices to enhance flavor in Asian cuisine. Its taste can range from mild to slightly bitter and it is unique in that it has virtually no detectable fragrance. The leaf is used in tea blends, soups, and sauces and eaten as a salad green and cooked vegetable. 


Gotu kola is a staple in traditional Chinese, Indonesian, and Ayurvedic medicine and is said to help improve your overall health and well-being. It contains many nutrients, including several B-vitamins, C-vitamin and antioxidants. Its impressive health-promoting properties are said to boost brainpower, heal skin issues, promote liver and kidney health, ease inflammation and improve circulation.
