Stress And Anxiety. A study conducted on animals in 2016 showed that the Gotu Kola extract possessed calming effects for anxious thoughts. These effects were exhibited in test mice that had been sleep-deprived for approximately 72 hours. Anxiety, cell-flammation and oxidative damage are likely to occur as a result of sleep deprivation . The study indicated that mice which were given the Gotu Kola extract five days before being sleep-deprived displayed less anxious behavior and stress even after 72 hours.
Another study that was published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology indicated that there were improvements in both mood and memory of elderly people who had been using the extract . Additionally, our Gotu Kola extract will also act as a restful support agent by calming our nerves for better sleep.*
Memory Booster. Gotu Kola extract is recognized for its ability to naturally boost memory. A study conducted at the Kasturba Medical College in India showed that rats which were put on the Gotu Kola extract for a period of two weeks exhibited a significant improvement in their memory .
The ability to boost memory shows that this extract has the potential to support cognitive health. Mice on the Gotu Kola extract displayed positive effects on their behavioral abnormalities . This shows that our extract is capable of supporting our brain cells from any kind of toxicity.*
- Improved Body Circulation. Poor circulation in the body could be due to many conditions such as obesity, diabetes, varicose veins and even heart disease . This could lead to problems such as numbness in certain parts or even muscle pain. Our blood circulation could be boosted through regular exercise and avoiding long periods of immobility. For more desirable results, you can supplement these activities with our Gotu Kola extract. A review in 2013 discovered that the Gotu Kola extract was effective in improving body circulation . This super extract also helped in supporting circulation challenges numbness and leg pain. Older research suggests that the Gotu Kola extract could be used in vein health. This could be due to the positive metabolic effect of the plant's extract on the connective tissues of the vascular wall.*
- Stretch Marks and Cellulite. A review in 2013 indicated that the Gotu Kola extract contains terpenoids which can increase collagen production in the body . As a result, the appearance of stretch marks is greatly reduced. The formation of new marks is also significantly lessened. It has been observed that skin products containing Gotu Kola as an extract is also helpful in supporting stretch marks and cellulite in females . This shows that consuming our extract will also help you minimize your stretch marks.*
- Stomach Health. These are sores that usually form on the lining of the stomach. They could also form on the lining of the oesophagus or small intestines. Ulcers will result in pain and bleeding on the affected organs. External symptoms include nausea. Studies show that the Gotu Kola extract will help support stomach health by strengthening our intestinal barriers . A study conducted and published in the journal of Life Sciences shows that rats on the Gotu Kola extract had an improvement in stomach health by up to 82% . The active compounds in the extract were also able to support stomach health after a few days. *
- Cell Homeostasis. Cell-Flammation in various body organs occurs as a normal biological response to injury. In the long run, chronic inflammation may bring about worse complications such as obesity, arthritis, cancer and diabetes. In order to prevent inflammation, your body requires antioxidants. Gotu Kola extract may boost the antioxidant process in the body. An animal study conducted in 2008 showed that the compounds in Gotu Kola extracts were able to demonstrate healthy cell homeostasis through antioxidant support .*
