Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola, also known as Asian Water Pennywort, is a plant that is used in ayurveda, among other things. Ayurveda is both a way of life and a system of medicine that has been practised worldwide for more than 5,000 years and can therefore be labelled as the oldest method of medicine known to man.

Gotu Kola is a plant that is added to food. It can also be mixed with fruit in smoothies. You can also make juice from the leaves, which is good for, among other things, stomach ulcers caused by medicines such as aspirin. Gotu Kola is also an ingredient in salads, rice dishes and curries.

The Gotu Kola is native to Southeast Asia, but today it grows in many warm areas of the world. It is somewhat similar in appearance and characteristics to ragweed.
