For years I have used Gotu Kola for supporting my memory function. This particular extract is one of the few supplements that I really found to be extremely effective. I notice an immediate inability to focus and think clear the day I forgot to use it.

I use it on my face to diminish pigmentation! This stuff really works! I alternatively use another herb based treatment, and I guess I have the two to thank for.
