Gotu kola is a wild edible weed that grows well in lawns all over the United States. This wonder herb is so beneficial that some cultures give it almost legendary properties. Gotu kola is considered to be the most spiritual of all herbs in India and is used by yogis to improve meditation. It is said to develop the crown chakra. It is said that if you eat just three fresh leaves a day it can improve brain function. Here are some of the other traditional benefits of gotu kola:

  • Anti-aging
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Burns
  • Skin problems
  • Sores
  • Vericose veins
  • Wounds
  • Blood circulation (Nature’s Viagra)
  • Memory
  • A blood purifier
  • Promoting restful sleep

Gotu kola is just one of an amazing variety of plants that we grow here at Hippocrates Health Institute in our Organic Garden for the benefit of our guests.
