Gotu Kola Powder-

The Library of Medicine has stated consuming Gotu Kola from their reports, as an agent to treat dementia and a cognitive enhancer

Our study showed that 750 mg and 1000 mg of gotu kola extract or 3 mg of folic acid per day for 6 weeks was effective in improving cognitive impairment after stroke infarction assessed on the increase in MoCA-Ina scores from the beginning to the end of therapy (Table 2). Our between-group analysis did not show any significant difference among treatment groups in terms of MoCA-Ina change. This indicated that gotu kola 1000 mg and 750 mg were equal to folic acid 3 mg in improving cognitive function in vascular cognitive impairment. Previous studies have showed that folic acid supplementation significantly improved cognitive function. Folic acid is thought to work in improving cognitive function through its role in reducing homocysteine level in the blood [, ].

Gotu kola has been shown to restore declined cognitive functions in animal models through various mechanisms. The aqueous extract of the entire gotu kola plant has been revealed to show improvement in learning and memory, inhibition of AChE activity, improved dendritic arborization of the amygdala and hippocampus, reduced levels of β-amyloid plaques in the hippocampus, decreased oxidative stress, prevention of radiation-induced behavioral changes during clinical radiotherapy, and improved D-galactose induced behavioral, biochemical, and mitochondrial dysfunctions in animals. Asiaticoside, the active constituent of gotu kola, has been reported as an agent to treat dementia and a cognitive enhancer. Asiaticoside has been reported to have therapeutic value against β-amyloid neurotoxicity [].
