Gotu Kola: Raising Your Mental Capacity One Drop at a Time

Gotu Kola also known as the "miracle elixir" is a swamp herb that has been used in China, India and Indonesia for over one thousand years. Its best known for the promotion of mental clarity but also aides in skin disorders such as psoriasis and leprosy (I thought that Jesus dude took care of that one, guess not) as well as asthma, fever, diarrhea, arthritis, insomnia, lesions, varicose veins, memory and so much more.

You should take gotu kola for no longer than 6 week intervals at a time, breaking for at least 2 weeks before resuming. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have been diagnosed with precancerous melanoma it is not recommended. Gotu Kola can be found in tincture form, use about 15-20 drops in a small amount of water 2-4 times daily to become a member of Mensa.
