What is Gotu Kola?
Centella Asiatica, more commonly known as Gotu Kola, is a perennial plant found in Asia. This herbal supplement is traditionally used in Chinese, Indian and Indonesian Ayurvedic tonics. The many benefits of Gotu Kola do not stop there; in China, Gotu Kola was referred to as ‘The Fountain of Life’ because of its many health benefits. 
Gotu Kola Containing 5% Saponins
Individuals looking to take herbal supplements should look for extracts for maximum benefits. Extracts provide a guarantee that a certain amount of the active ingredients are present. In this case, Gotu Kola has been tested to contain 5% Saponins.
What are Saponins?
Saponins are plant based glycosides extracted for a variety of benefits. The presence of Saponins protect the plant from certain scavengers due to the bitter taste and poisonous characteristics. Though Saponins are poisonous to some animals, they provide many health benefits to humans. Saponins are commonly used to promote respiratory and circulatory health.* 
Gotu Kola Benefits
Mainly known for its cognitive benefits, Gotu Kola also promotes overall health and well-being. This supplement functions as a cellular health supplement, and more.*
Gotu Kola has been shown to promote relaxation and overall well-being. One study showed Gotu Kola decreased the acoustic startle response (ASR). ASR is the negative response to sudden threats, noises, or movements. This study further proves Gotu Kola’s effectiveness as an anxiolytic.* 
Poor mood, lack of motivation and many other factors have negative effects on cognitive function. Gotu Kola’s ability to promote healthy mood is one of the reasons it aids in cognitive benefits.  Mood-related cognitive supplementation is not the only nootropic benefit experienced when using Gotu Kola. This supplement promotes enhanced memory, attention span, and motivation.* [3,5]
Gotu Kola supplementation promotes microcirculation which is the circulation of blood through the smallest blood vessels consisting of artioles, capillaries, and venules.* [6,7,8]
