Gotu Kola Complex Description

Suggested use: 1-3/day

Gotu Kola Complex is a combination of Gotu Kola, Grape Seed and Ginkgo biloba. These herbs contain different phytochemicals. All the herbs within this tablet have standardized levels of key phytochemicals to ensure optimal strength and quality.

Connective tissue gets its name because of its function: it connects other tissues and body systems. Collagen and elastin are important components of connective tissues. The normal processes of tissue repair are mostly a function of connective tissues.

Another type of tissue is epithelial tissue. The outer layer of skin is epithelial tissue; beneath this is the dermis made of connective tissue. Because blood vessels do not occur in epithelial tissues, the connective tissue layer is essential so the epithelial cells can receive nutrients from the blood vessels in the connective tissue beneath.

How Gotu Kola Complex keeps you healthy:

  • Promotes healthy tissues, supports capillary integrity and the body's normal tissue repair process
    The triterpenes of Gotu Kola have been used clinically to support the normal repair process of skin. Gotu Kola has been used traditionally to help maintain healthy tissue fluid levels during the normal repair processes of skin, muscles and cartilage.

    Capillaries are very small blood vessels that are in close contact with the surrounding tissues. The fluids that nourish these tissues, the wastes that are excreted, the oxygen, water and food that are absorbed all enter and leave via the capillaries. In mostly uncontrolled clinical trials, standardized Grape Seed extract promoted healthy blood vessel walls and healthy capillaries. This helped prevent leakage of fluid from the capillaries to the surrounding body tissues.

    These activities have also been shown clinically for the triterpenes of Gotu Kola. The results from one trial suggest that the triterpenes of Gotu Kola provide benefit by helping maintain normal, healthy connective tissue in the walls of veins. Experiments in test tubes are often conducted to learn more about how herbal extracts work in the body.

    These tests suggest that the triterpenes of Gotu Kola support existing collagen and promote the normal synthesis of collagen in the skin and vein walls. These triterpenes also support the epithelial cells in the inner layer of veins. The procyanidins of Grape Seed also support existing collagen and elastin within vein walls.

    Gotu Kola is recommended traditionally to support healthy stomach and duodenal tissue. The benefit of this traditional use has also been shown in uncontrolled trials using the triterpenes of Gotu Kola.

  • Supports healthy circulation
    In a controlled clinical trial, standardized Ginkgo extract enhanced healthy blood flow in the capillaries of the fingers. Enhanced circulation is an important factor in supporting the healing process in tissues throughout the body. Healthy circulation provides the tissues with oxygen, nutrients and the substances used by the body in the normal repair process.
    Together these herbs and the compounds within them help to:
    • support the body's normal tissue repair process
    • promote normal development of connective and epithelial tissue, particularly during times of increased physical stress, e.g., athletic performance
    • promote healthy blood vessels
    • support stomach and duodenal tissue
    • provide antioxidant activity
    • promote the body's natural tissue drainage process
    • promote healthy skin and connective tissue

Caution: Contraindicated in known allergy to Gotu Kola. Not to be used during pregnancy and lactation unless otherwise directed by a qualified health care professional.
