Gotu Kola Review
L.A. Naturals Gotu Kola is a single ingredient liquid formula based on the beneficial properties of the Gotu Kola plant. The company behind this supplement is called L.A. Naturals and is specialized in providing liquid formulations and sprays mostly based on herbal extracts. Vitamin sprays and drops, children’s formulas, and homeopathic remedies are also part of their line of products.
The manufacturer does not indicate if there is a specific affection for which the formula is designed, which is a little strange for a product of this type. Fortunately, there is enough online information about the modern uses of the Gotu Kola which we will try to summarize in the sections below.
L.A. Naturals Gotu Kola contains the following ingredients: L.A. Naturals Gotu Kola includes the following ingredients: Certified Organic Gotu Kola herb (Centella asiatica), grain alcohol (45-55% by volume), and deionized water.
L.A. Naturals Gotu Kola is based on the healing qualities of the Indian plant Gotu Kola. Traditionally, the herb has been used to support meditation, as a general tonic, and to support nervous and circulatory system functions.
Today, Gotu Kola is used for a broad spectrum of affections, with scientific research backing-up some of these uses. For example, studies have shown that the herb works very well as a memory enhancer and general brain tonic. Other studies support its ability to promote connective tissue healing. Due to the presence of a certain compound (Asiaticoside) the herb can actually stimulate skin repair in the case of wounds and third degree burns.
Another important benefit of Gotu Kola refers to the circulatory system. Not only is the extract able to lower high blood pressure, but is can also strengthen the veins and capillaries. Because of these qualities, the herb has been successfully used to treat various conditions affecting blood vessels such as chronic venous insufficiency, a condition that weakens the valves in the veins making it impossible for the blood to be transported back to the heart. Varicose veins, spider veins, leg cramps, abnormal tingling in the extremities, or sores, are only a few of the symptoms indicating a venereal condition.
Gotu Kola is considered generally safe even for pregnant women when applied to the skin. However there is not enough information about the safety of the oral administration in this case, so pregnant and breastfeeding women should not use unless their doctor approves it. Some concerns that Gotu Kola may cause liver damage also exists, so people with known liver conditions should also be careful.

L.A. Naturals Gotu Kola looks like a high quality supplement that lacks GMO’s and artificial substances. However, the fact that there is so little information about it on the official website makes us wonder about the manufacturer’s interest in promoting their products. The product is not clinically researched, and consumer testimonials are also missing. Please consult with your physician or healthcare provider prior to purchasing and using this supplement.
