For those of us who have been making enquiries about the availability of this product,I sincerely apologise for the delay in restocking.We were informed today that we should expect a delivery next week.

As a reminder, GOTU KOLA is one of those herbs which teach us that FORM or OR SHAPE is a signature tune for FUNCTION.

Gotu kola has the shape of the human brain.It is,therefore,not suprising that so many studies on gotu kola have been devoted to its beneficial effects on brain and nerve function,as the nerves originate in the brain.For example…

1) gotu kola improves memory,combats insomnia,balances or harmonises activities of both hemispheres of the brain,to produce a more balanced state of the brain and mind.Studies show that it improves cognitive function and improves attention span among especially people who have to use their brains a lot.It also helps children with short attention spans.

2) gotu kola is reported to help repair damaged or worn out nerves and to improve nerve energy transmissions.It should be good,therefore,for people challenged with peripheral nerve problems,nerve spasms or tremors and even sciatica.

3) gotu kola is reported to improve blood circulation.The cells begin to atrophise or wilt and die when they cannot get adequate blood,oxygen and nutrient supplies and have poisnous waste products of their me tabolism promptly evacuated.This makes them weak and unable to produce enough energy for the entire body which we inhabitants of these bodies,move about in,and require to be energetic to make us successfully carry out our daily activities.In other words,gotu kola is an energiser.Some authorities on gotu kola believe gotu kola’s blood circulation properties are what make it a longevity herb.The Chinese believe that Li Chung Yuen lived for about 256 years because he took gotu kola everyday of his adult life.While his age may be debatable,modern studies of gotu kola justify claims that it is a longevity herb.

4) gotu kola is accepted as an adaptogen.This means it balances the body’s energy when it is low, and brings it back to normal when it is too high.Thus,it is seen as a stimulating herb without the dangerous side effects which come with stimulating or anti depressant drugs.

There is a lot more to remind us about gotu kola, but time does not permit. With grateful thanks for your patience and understanding especially those who have prepaid for this product,we look forward to the good cheer next week.
