Gotu kola is a perennial indigenous plant to the tropical wetlands of Southeast Asia. It has small fan-shaped green leaves with white or light purple-to-pink flowers, and small oval fruit. The leaves and stems of the gotu kola plant are used as medicine. This plant has long been used in Chinese, Indonesian and Ayurvedic traditions. Gotu kola contains certain chemicals that seem to decrease swelling and blood pressure. It also seems to increase collagen production, which might be helpful for wound healing. People use gotu kola for burns and poor circulation that can lead to varicose veins.
