Brain health plus...

Author: Linda Sinden   Date Posted:24 July 2020 

Centella Asiatica, aka Gota Kola, is a must when one wishes to support brain health, energy, mental clarity, memory and recall. Used both in Ayurvedic Medicine and Chinese Medicine Centella Asiatica has a balancing effect on all three doshas, helping to calm emotions while also promoting concentration and alertness. 

Famous as a tonic for nerve and brain cells, Centella Asiatica also enhances cerebral circulation, intestinal health and sleep. Interestingly some think it's effectiveness on the brain may be due to its effects on the gut microbiology as it helps to balance the inner skin that lines the digestive tract, supporting the growth and maintenance of healthy microbes. These microbes are responsible for the production of neurotransmitters that help mood and cognitive functions, leading one to conclude that the health of the gut has a lot to play in the health of our mental faculties too.

Centella Asiatica is also considered one of the most spiritual herbs of Ayurveda.
