The Wild Stuff
Native to wetlands in Asia, Centella asiatica is distinguished by its low growing, cupped leaves, which are used locally as a culinary vegetable. Gotu Kola leaf is highly regarded in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda for its healthful effects and as an ally in supporting healthy brain functioning. The dried leaves are typically brewed into gotu kola tea, added into herbal tea blends, and tinctured.
