What is Gotu Kola?
Gotu Kola is an herb that is native to India, Sri Lanka and other Asian countries and is part of the parsley family, it is also known as Centella asiatica, brahmabuti, hydrocotyle, Indian pennywort, and Indian water navelwort. In Sri Lanka, we grew up eating Gotu kola as a day-to-day green, basically like broccoli here in the US! We’re so proud to bring this childhood staple to this side of the world in an easy to consume way - and preserve all of its nutritional value!
Gotu Kola is for mind, body, and spirit
Here at Kola Goodies we are all about feeling good on the inside and out and luckily for us that’s exactly what Gotu Kola does.
The benefits are endless:
✨May help reduce reduce anxiety
✨increasing blood circulation
✨lastly who doesn’t love healthy hair, skin and nails
Gotu Kola also has the ability to boost collagen and decrease inflammation. It helps protect our existing collagen and helps create the building blocks for new collagen. What does that mean for you?
✨Tightening of skin
✨Reduces the appearance of scars
✨Helps reduce the appearance of sun damage
✨Helps maintain skin's elasticity and youthful glow
A blend of triterpenes ( asiatic acid, madecassic acid and asiaticoside) is found in Gotu Kola that is responsible for most of these benefits. Along with triterpenoid, Gotu Kola contains a rich source of amino acids and hydrating properties that help calm irritated skin.
Gotu Kola: the most spiritual herb
Gotu Kola is great for anyone looking to enhance their spiritual journey. Gotu kola is great for balancing all three doshas but like anything else in life moderation is important. It will slow your mind and give you a sense of space, stillness and awareness. This is great for anyone that practices posture and meditation.
Where does the Gotu Kola in GO-TU POWER MOVE come from?
We work with a farmer collective to source our gotukola under fair working conditions from Sri Lanka. Our gotukola is sourced from Beliatta, a small town on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. You’ll smell the freshness as soon as you open the pouch!
