As your Portland Personal Trainer lets learn about Gotu Kola for brain building.
It is widely considered a superior herb for the nervous system, Gotu Kola has a host of benefits. This herb is called brahmi which means god like, a reference to its anti-aging properties and to its use as an aid to meditation.
Gotu kola strengthens memory, concentration and intelligence, and stabilizes mood. A study out of Korea shows components in gotu kola show potential for treating Alzheimers disease.
I would take 1 gram per day in capsules daily. Try a cup of gotu kola tea with honey before meditation.
