Gotu kola : Revitalizing your Skin Naturally
One of the primary reasons our skin ages is the break-down of the protein structures in our skin. Proteins collagen and elastin are the building blocks of our skin structure. These two protein fibers are responsible for keeping our skin smooth, firm and supple.
When these proteins break down, our skin texture crumbles leading to wrinkle-formation and saggy skin. Inflammation is one of the reasons behind the destruction of collagen and elastin proteins. Our skin gets irritated and releases activators that destroy the skin’s components including collagen and elastin. The old Asian traditional herb Gotu Kola has a solution.
What is Gotu Kola?
Gotu Kola is also known as Centella Asiatica or Asiatic Pennywort. It is a perennial plant that is most commonly found in the Southern-Eastern parts of Asia. The leaves of this plant are circular and a little upturned.
Traditionally, Gotu kola is used for cooking in the Asiatic countries. Apart from that, it is also used as a medicinal herb to improve blood circulation, heal burns and scars.
The plant comes from the family of parsley and tastes bitter and slightly sweet. It is available as an oral supplement in the market, and as an ingredient in nature-based products.
Why is Gotu Kola good for your Skin?
Gotu kola has amazing wound-healing properties that can effectively heal burns, wounds, and scars. This property of Gotu kola makes it a great ingredient to heal skin inflammation.
It also promotes the increase of fibroblasts that produce collagen and other fibers hence boosting the process of collagen synthesis. When the skin collagen levels increase, the fine lines and wrinkles get smoothened. It also reduces the signs of skin aging.
Gotu kola is one of the important nature-based ingredients used by Bee Elite Essentials to craft products that give you the most effective anti-aging results.
