Gotu Kola for Your Brain and Heart
One of the reasons HerbWorks formulas are so unique is because of the complex array of herbs that are designed to promote brain coherence.
Each herb contributes to the overall effect of keeping all parts of the brain in constant communication. Gotu Kola is famous for consolidating energy in the frontal lobe of the brain, enhancing GABA production, and helping with concentration.
Gotu Kola is an important part of TianChi because it pairs well with reishi mushroom in its ability to open the energy centers in the brain associated with the pituitary gland. The pituitary not only plays a role in the stress response, but also stabilizes the frontal lobe of the brain.
When you’re overwhelmed by stress, your brain loses this control and everything becomes a survival response. Activating this energy center allows the brain an easier pathway to self-correction and brain coherence.
In China, Gotu Kola has also been used to support the growth of hair and nails because it boosts the connective tissues that line many of the external surfaces of the body, such as the scalp and skin.
In the same way it strengthens these healthy connective tissues, it can also support blood vessel strength and integrity, as well as circulation!
These effects are believed linked to chemical compounds known as triterpenes, which stimulate the production of cardiac glycosides - organic compounds that increase the force of the heart and increase the rate of contractions. Essentially...it strengthens your heart!
Getting a daily dose of gotu kola from TianChi is a great way to promote brain and heart health, and there isn’t a better time to start than right now!
