What are Gotu Kola Enteric Coated Tablets?

Gotu Kola, scientific name Centella asiatica and sometimes referred to as Asiatic Pennywort, Indian Pennywort and Tsubokusa; is a perennial plant native to India, China, Japan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, South Africa and the South Pacific. As an aquatic plant, it grows abundantly in tropical, swampy areas and is known for its fan-shaped green leaves and white, purple or pink flowers. Traditionally, both the leaves and stems of the Centella asiatica plant are used to obtain its reported health benefits.  

Gotu Kola Plant

Gotu Kola’s history of use, as well as its nootropic benefits, are very similar to that of Bacopa monnieri – even to the extent that they have even shared common names such as Brahmi. Due to its similar name, Gotu Kola has also been often confused for the Kola Nut as well. However, it should be noted that, unlike Kola Nuts, it is not stimulating nor does it contain any caffeine whatsoever. Much the opposite, in fact, as Gotu Kola has been reported to actually promote relaxation. In China, it has often been referred to as “the fountain of life” and is renowned in traditional Ayurveda as a memory supplement among its other benefits and uses.

Gotu Kola Benefits and Uses

As a dietary or nootropic supplement, Gotu Kola benefits may include:

    • May help support memory function and promote mental clarity
    • May help promote healthy stress levels
    • May help support healthy cardiovascular function
    • May help promote healthy sleep cycles
    • May help support collagen synthesis

The active chemicals in Gotu Kola are known as triterpenoids. Some studies conducted on triterpenoids suggest they may benefit memory function, promote healthy stress levels as well as increase the strength and volume of collagen. 

Much like Bacopa monnieri, it is reported that it may take a few weeks for Gotu Kola’s cognitive-enhancing benefits to take a noticeable effect. It is believed this is due to Gotu Kola activating a class of proteins known as mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), which then in turn causes a release in a growth factor for neurons called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). This may support neuronal growth which promotes brain plasticity and communication between brain cells. In 1992, a study of rats concluded a positive effect on memory function when they were supplemented with a Gotu Kola extract daily for fourteen days. Learned-behavior retention was then measured to be 3 to 60 times better in those rats than that of the control animals in the same study.

Other studies indicate that an additional Gotu Kola benefit may be its ability to support the brain from neurotoxins such as a lead, arsenic and aluminum.

Is This Gotu Kola Extract Standardized For Its Triterpene Content?

Yes, this Gotu Kola Extract is standardized to a minimum 35-45% Triterpenes, 15-25% Madecassoside + Asiaticoside B, and 15-20% Asiaticoside.

What is Enteric Coating?

Our Gotu Kola Extract tablets, besides being very high in bioactive compounds, have another special trick up their sleeve; enteric coating. Enteric coatings are designed to resist stomach acid, only releasing their contents once they have passed the harsh acidic environment of our stomach. For many supplements, this is completely unnecessary, as they fare perfectly fine in stomach acid and absorb well in the stomach too. This is not the case for something like a Gotu Kola supplement, as the triterpenes contained in Gotu Kola break down in our stomach acid. This actually is not necessarily a bad thing, as the breakdown products of these triterpenes still have important physiological effects in the body. However, by enteric coating Gotu Kola, we can selectively induce different effects than regular Gotu Kola supplementation.

The triterpenes contained in Gotu Kola, which have a glucose moiety are especially sensitive to our stomach acid. The glycoside triterpenes asiaticoside and madecassoside, quickly lose their glucose moiety when exposed to stomach acid and turn into their aglycone counter parts, asiatic acid and madecassic acid. This is a shame, as asiaticoside and madecassoside both have their own unique effects, such as enhancing brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels and can help promote healthy cardiovascular function. This is one of the main reasons why we decided to create enteric coated tablets of our Gotu Kola extract.

Another reason why we decided on enteric coated tablets is, in theory, enteric coating our Gotu Kola extract, may also increase the duration of effects. This is due to the fact that asiaticoside and madecassoside will eventually metabolize into asiatic acid and madecassic acid, which are both also bioactive compounds. Instead of having asiaticoside and madecassoside rapidly break down in the stomach to form asiatic acid and madecassic acid, the enteric coating allows the asiaticoside and madecassoside to fully absorb. This will allow asiaticoside and madecassoside to exert their beneficial effects in the body, before turning into asiatic acid and madecassic acid, and allowing them to exert their beneficial effects.

Our enteric coated tablets are made with methyl cellulose; an inert, safe and hypoallergenic ingredient. Methyl cellulose is hydrophobic, meaning it is “scared of water”, this is one of the reasons why it is able to resist the harsh environments in our stomach. Once the enteric coated tablets have passed our stomach, the enteric coating will slowly start to fall off, allowing the Gotu Kola tablets to release their contents. This same technology has been applied to other sensitive ingredients such as probiotics. Enteric coated probiotics have been shown to work much better than regular probiotics. This is because enteric coated probiotics deliver probiotics where they are needed most. The same technology has been applied to fish oil because enteric coated fish oil can prevent fish oil burps.

    I'm still not sure of the overall benefit? I've been sleeping better but I think a higher dosage is probably needed to achieve optimal results!

  • Isabel Torralba - 22nd Jan 2021

    Skin looks like silk, eyes looking more than ever

    Not only skin look tighter and smoother than ever but I'm also needing less hours of rest in order to feel fully replenished. One of my fav noots

  • Daniel - 28th Dec 2020

    My favorite adaptogen

    I generally am not keen on adaptogens because they make me almost too calm, but this (along with Bacopa) is the exception. I love Gotu Kola. I take it first thing in the morning and it helps keep my mood up and combats my sensitivity to caffeine. I also take a second tablet before bed. My memory and skin have improved as well and it hasn't caused anhedonia like other plant extracts have. 5 stars!

    Gotu Kola

    Lab tests show 4 times telomerase compared to TA-65

  • John - 28th Nov 2020

    Worked but problem..

    It worked as expected and as with all ND products you can remain calm that there's no metal contamination. I use it for varicose veins and it does a good job at this. Howver the enteric coating means my stomach doesn't always digest it, I've been getting half of the tablet come out in my stools. I will be purchasing the powder from now on for this reason.

  • Arthur J. - 16th Nov 2020


    I honestly don't notice anything for my hairs/nails. Perhaps buying the powder and taking more helps better in that regard than these tablets. Other than that, I find gotu kola similar to bacopa but more subtle.

  • Mike Stanley - 26th Aug 2020

    For gotu kola this is the best I think?

    My hair and nails are def stronger but I didn't notice mental acuity

  • Mark Heller - 20th Apr 2020

    Nice concentrated extract in a small pill in a pretty bottle

    Will reorder

  • Abe - 12th Apr 2020

    Mixed feelings

    This product works well to recover long forgotten memories. It also puts me in a good mood and makes my skin look significantly better. The only reason why I give this three stars is because it consistently ruins my sleep.

  • Isabel Torralba - 11th Apr 2020

    New born

    I sleep like a baby and my skin is smooth as one's

  • Arthur - 5th Apr 2020

    Probably the best substance for skin

    I have only 30 cp left and I think it was enough time to go through a review now. I used the powder first and got a lot of good results, mainly in cognition, sleep support and skin (wrote a review there). This tablet version is a weird case because I didn't feel that the cognitive effect was as strong as the powder. However, I take a lot of things that disrupt the brain homeostasis so this must be taken into account. About the skin and sleep: I felt this tablet version being is a bit stronger, but nothing absurd. I mean, Gotu Kola is already an absurd, but the powder and tablets difference was not that great on me.

  • Anonymoose - 27th Jan 2020

    Skin improvement, possibly sleep + memory too

    Taking this alongside bacopa + sleep support, the benefits of these tablets to sleep + memory might have been missed by me. But, I definitely noticed a skin improvement while taking this; my skin is much smoother than it was before starting. These tablets are also just small enough for me to swallow.

  • Mike - 17th Dec 2019

    Double hitter

    I started taking this for the cognitive effects like calmness and memory. However my skin got better while on it. I later found out that gotu kola improves skin health because of collagen effects. So I got an extra bit of benefits I didn't even expect.

  • Brianna - 9th Jun 2019


    This is the best gotu kola I have every tried. I get better sleep and am less stressed after taking these. My skin looks fabulous. My mood and memory are better. It is just a perfect supplement for me, and the tablets are small and easy to swallow.
