Health benefits of Gotu Kola

I came across this article on a herb called gotu kola, which has been found to calm anxiety naturally, among other benefits. Here's sharing with you since you are interested in herbology and you may find it useful as a reference too. I will also archive this information in my blog for future reference.
(NaturalHealth365) " For many centuries, gotu kola has been a mainstay of both the Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) healing systems. Botanically known as Centella asiatica, and also referred to as Asiatic pennywort, this member of the parsley family has been used in TCM to treat kidney failure and malaria, as well as a variety of skin conditions – including leprosy. In Ayurveda,, where it is known as brahmi, gotu kola is prescribed for similar purposes.

But, gotu kola may also have potent psychological and mental benefits, such as the power to improve cognitive abilities, reduce anxiety and enhance longevity."
