Brahmi plant care and instructions
Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) is a well-known herb traditionally used in the treatment of skin damage as well as for circulatory enhancement. This is a specialized extraction employed for the concentration of the active constituents for enhanced therapeutic benefits to the skin. Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) has been shown to have many healing attributes acting as a general tonic for overall skin and circulatory health. When applied topically it has been shown to speed the healing of damaged tissues and to minimize scarring. Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) is rich in saponins which are well known for their beneficial connective tissue impact where they stimulate skin repair and strengthen hair and nails. This activity is dramatic enough to improve the look of cellulite and other skin imperfections.

According to the American Cancer Society, although Centella is promoted for its health benefits, “available scientific evidence does not support claims of its effectiveness for treating cancer or any other disease in humans” However some research has shown a possible health benefit in the form of reduction of the progression of subclinical arterial lesions in low-risk asymptomatic subjects. It also has culinary uses in some countries.
