What is Gotu Kola?

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 promote memory function and promote mental clarity
    • May help support 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.

Gotu Kola Dosage

As a dietary supplement, take 120mg of Gotu Kola Extract powder 2-3 times daily.

    Gotu Kola extract high in actives

    This is a very good Gotu Kola extract and I can tel by its taste that it is very high in the highly beneficial triterpene actives. I recently read in some cell studies it caused an 8 fold increase in telomerase activity (antiaging telomere DNA support) which was 4 to 5 times greater than TA-65 (cyclcoastragenol) tested side by side. TA-65 is extremely expensive yet this Centella is affordable by comparison and can achieve similar physiologic levels of triterpenes at regular human dosages. This is middle of the road in pricing, much more affordable than taking the same dosage of triterpenes in 10 to 15 Gotu Kola standardized extract capsules (usually standardized to only 10%), but not as affordable as getting some extracts directly from India which takes forever and could be questionable for heavy metal levels. Noottropics Depot tests for heavy metals so I feel more confident buying from them. This is a true nootropic and antiaging botanical with collagen increasing, DNA rejuvenating, and brain restoring effects. Everyone over 50 should be taking it. Good for circulation issues, vascular health, and microcirculation too. So glad they offer this!

    Fantastic for Phenibut taper

    I have not used this product yet but I have some on the way.

    I am thrilled that ND has started carrying as I have used Gotu Kola herb in capsules before during a Phenibut taper and it is an extremely useful tool to have in your Phenibut kit.

    At higher doses it is supposed to raise Gaba levels in the brain and is theorized to have GABA-B binding affinity.

    I have used a range of 5-10 grams of the raw herb in capsules and found it equivalent to around 500-1000 mg of Phenibut.

    I assume that this product, being an extract, would work effectively for this purpose around 500-1000 mg
