Gotu kola, a member of the parsley family, is highly regarded as a rejuvenative herb in Ayurvedic medicine. It is often prescribed to increase memory and cognitive function. It appears to be an adaptogen, aiding the body in resisting stressors and stabilizing the nervous system to temper anxiety, fatigue and depression. It has a beneficial effect on poor circulation (which can ultimately lead to heart disease and stroke) and is thought to expedite wound healing.
