Gotu Kola is an herbal ingredient used for medicinal purposes starting thousands of years ago in China, India and Indonesia. Its modern uses include numerous health conditions, from fatigue, anxiety and depression to urinary tract infection and diabetes. Although the precise mechanism of action is not fully understood, Gotu Kola has been shown to contain certain chemicals that decrease inflammation and blood pressure in veins. Also, it seems to increase collagen production, which is important for wound healing.
Recent research is focusing on Gotu Kola’s presumed effectiveness in improving mental functions such as concentration and memory, derived from its ability to increase peripheral circulation. Gotu Kola is considered safe for most consumers. However reports of stomach upset, nausea, itching and drowsiness have been registered.
GABA is one of the most important and most abundant inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain, known to promote sleep and positive mood and to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression or nervousness.
