Modern research into the plant’s pharmacological properties and clinical benefits bears these beliefs out: Gotu Kola is rich in triterpenoid saponins, aka centelloids, a class of flavonoids that have been found to strengthen blood vessel walls and increase their elasticity, resulting in improved cerebral blood flow and small capillary integrity. These same compounds prove effective in the treatment of peripheral varicose and spider veins, fragile capillaries, redness, water retention, slackening sub-dermal structures, stretch marks, and stubborn cellulite. Additionally, amino acids, tannins, phytosterols, and sugars contained in Gotu Kola provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity which boost collagen synthesis, protecting surface and deeper skin layers from the signs of aging and environmental degradation.
Gotu Kola is equally prized for scalp health and hair loss, since increased circulation to the scalp delivers more nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles, increasing hair vitality and strength. Other skincare benefits include speeding wound healing, hemorrhoid repair, absorbing and cleansing impurities and toxins from the skin, and calming topical treatments to ease muscle and joint pain in liniments or massage oils.
Given the wide versatility of cosmetic and therapeutic applications of this superstar botanical, it boasts a key role in hair, face, and body oils, ointments, emulsions, serums, gels, shampoos, masks, and more. Gotu Kola Extract, Oil Soluble may be used to capitalize on all these benefits for a variety of products.
