ORGANIC DETOX GOTU KOLA SALAD
Healthy Cooking with Kamalaya: Detox Cuisine
In Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, gotu kola is – among other things – considered an anti-ageing herb. In fact, the saying goes “Two leaves a day keeps old age away”. Its anti-inflammatory properties are highly regarded, and it is beneficial in treating arthritis. Gotu kola is therapeutic for the brain and the central nervous system, helping to improve concentration and calm the nerves. In studies, it has shown to increase blood circulation, balance blood pressure, boost memory and ease anxiety. It is rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6, which accounts for its positive effects on the nervous system. Use the fresh leaves to make tea, or in this robustly flavoured healing salad.
Characterized by constant fatigue, insomnia, low blood pressure, back and joint pain, decreased immunity and anxiety, it is the result of the adrenal glands going into overdrive, eventually becoming underactive before suffering a full burnout.
