Gutu Kola is regarded as one of the most spiritual and rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda and is used to improve meditation [2] . It is said to develop the crown chakra, the energy center at the top of the head, and to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, which the leaf is said to resemble. Its fan shaped leaves are about the size of a pre-decimal-currency penny - hence its common names Indian pennywort, marsh penny and water pennywort.

Gutu Kola [1] contains rejuvenating properties and is rich in vitamins A, B,C, D and minerals, calcium, chromium, cobalt, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, sodium, potassium, selenium, silica and zinc.

It is a stimulant, blood purifier and energizer rejuvenator, brain food and energizers the brain cells and preserves them.

It restores worn out bodies and prevents nervous breakdown, mental and physical fatigue. Improves your memory and relieves pain related to arthritis.

It has been used for millennia as a traditional skin medication and is recognised as one of the most important anti-ageing, skin repairing, skin firming and anti-cellulite actives known today[3] .

Guta Kola is known as the elixir of life and for its longevity properties.



There is a saying that I have heard that 3 leaves a day keeps old age away. Guta Kola will keep men virile till old age, and increases sex drive and balances your hormones. It has been used to treat leprosy and tuberculosis. It oxygenates the cells and regulates blood pressure.

Metaphysically it is known to open the crown chakra which is an energy centre at the top of your head that once opened will attune you with your intuition, awareness and higher consciousness.

Gotu Kola is a minor feature in the longevity myth of the Tai Chi Chuan master Li Ching-Yun. He purportedly lived to be 256, due in part to his usage of traditional Chinese herbs including Gotu Kola (from Wikipedia).

You only need to eat 3 leaves per day of this incredible small, but powerful herb.
