Gotu Kola - Centella asiatica

Sanskrit Name:Mandookaparni
Hindi Name:Mandookparni

Latin Name:Centella asiatica
Description:A prostrate herb with glabrous leaves found throughout India in fallow lands, wet and shady places. Now a days the herb is also cultivated in many parts of the country. The leaves are used in Ayurvedic preparation.
Dosha:Balances Kapha and Pitta.
Usage:Mandookaparni is used as a 'Medhya Rasayana' and in the treatment of skin and mental ailments. In many parts of India, it is used as a substitute of Brahmi (Bacopa monnjera). Its nootropic (nourishment effects on nervous tissue) and immunomodulatory activities have been well investigated. Comparative studies between Mandukaparni and Brahmi have shown it similar to Brahmi in action. However, it is more gentle as compared to latter, as regards to its effect on brain and nervous tissue.
