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. [1]

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.* [2]
