Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola has been valued for thousands of years in India, China, and Indonesia. It was traditionally used to heal wounds, improve mental clarity, and treat skin conditions such as leprosy and psoriasis. Some cultures also used it to treat respiratory infections, such as colds. In China it was referred to as "the fountain of life" due to a legend that one particular Chinese herbalist lived for more than 200 years as a result of taking Gotu Kola regularly.
