In nature, form follows function. Gotu Kola is a perfect example of how Gaia gives us aesthetical clues to what each individual plant of her vast pharmacopeia has in store for our healing. Shaped like a human brain, Gotu Kola has been revered in Ayurvedic technology and Traditional Chinese Medicine (specifically referenced in Daoist texts) for thousands of years as a master brain healing herb.

Today, science is proving Gotu Kola’s incredible capacity to sharpen cognition, harmonise the body and mind, and potentially extend life. Making Gotu Kola an obvious ally to the nootropic fungi found in our Mushroom plant-based latte.   

In both India and across Asia, Gotu Kola was known as a longevity herb. One of the great Daoist masters, Li Ching-Yuen, was said to have lived for 256 years, by taking this life-enhancing herb every single day. Today there are many studies validating Gotu Kola’s life-extending properties (1), most likely due to a synergistic combination of its powerful effects on the mind, body and spirit – the holistic self. The plant’s benefits range from greatly improving memory, restoring brain cell and nerve function, and improving blood quality and circulation, to restoring digestion and accelerating the healing of wounds (1-10).

One of our favourite aspects of Gotu Kola is its ability to enhance nearly every aspect of mental functioning (1-10). Typically herbs or substances that can achieve such feats are highly stimulating; however, Gotu Kola is centering, which makes it ideal for anyone looking for a cognitive boost without any of the common unwanted side effects of stimulants.

The Gotu Kola we use in our drinks is particularly magical due to the integrity of its energetic footprint which scales all the way back to its origin. Supplied by a leading Indian co-op in organic agriculture who work with small farmers to empower rural communities, our Gotu Kola is 100% certified organic, ethically-harvested and consciously-grown.
