Centella asiatica (Gotu Kola), commonly known as Indian pennywort, is a medicinal plant with a widespread use in several traditional medicinal systems. Centella asiatica contains an important bioactive compound known as Asiaticoside that is thoroughly researched in the West due to its extensive beneficial actions.

Gotu Kola Benefits and Uses

Centella asiatica is a herbaceous perennial plant that grows in wet and swampy regions of South East Asia and India. Centella asiatica is known for its therapeutic properties in traditional practices such as Ayurveda and TCM which date back to thousands of years. It is also a popular ingredient in dishes native to Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and Vietnam.

Gotu Kola is commercialized as a dietary supplement because of its numerous health benefits. The active chemical compounds in Centella asiatica are triterpene saponins (madecassoside and asiaticoside), centellosides, and centellose.

The saponin Asiaticoside in particular holds numerous pharmacological activities. Anecdotal evidence suggests Asiaticoside may have vascular-protective and wound healing effects. One study suggested a Gotu Kola extract (topical) increased the rate of healing in wounds because of its ability to stimulate cellular proliferation and collagen synthesis.

Furthermore, promising studies are showing Gotu Kola may improve cognitive functions, namely memory and mood. Other Gotu Kola benefits include healthier circulation and antioxidant effects.

Gotu Kola supplements are also known by a few different names, including:

  • Centella asiatica
  • Asiatic Pennywort
  • Centellase
  • Asiaticoside
  • Pegagan
  • Ji Xue Cao
  • Indian Pennywort
  • Brahma-Manduki
  • Centella coriacea

Scientific Consensus

Asiaticoside supplements are considered safe when taken orally in recommended doses for a duration of up to 2 months. While side effects are rare, in high doses, some may experience nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, digestive upset and skin allergies (with topical use). Asiaticoside has caused liver problems in isolated cases.

Please avoid use in the case of a preexisting liver condition. Consult your health care provider before taking this product.

Gotu Kola Extract Powder

Liftmode's Gotu Kola extract is an excellent health supplement/neuroprotectant with a wide range of benefits. Once I dose the suggested amount I begin to feel a noticeable mood shift and sense of calm, and my body feels like it is on an even keel, so to speak. I work in marketing and sales and I notice a slight improvement in my verbal recall and social skills as well. As always, Liftmode's product is extremely high quality and their customer service reps are a pleasure (shoutout to Leo!). Highly recommended.

Scientifically Tailored Ingredients

Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) is a perennial found in marshes throughout most of Asia. The primary active components of Gotu Kola are triterpenoid saponins Asiaticoside, Asiaticoside B, and Madecassoside, which have potent mood lifting, relaxing, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Traditionally, Gotu Kola is used for stress and mood, but recent studies indicate the triterpenoid saponins may have a more complex role than expected. Gotu Kola increases cerebral GABA levels, which is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter. The saponins have been shown to increase serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the brain.

Gotu Kola may also have long-term benefits. The saponins and their metabolites are believed to promote neurogenesis by enhancing expression of BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) and NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) which may promote learning as well as mood.
