The Gotu Kola herb is a type of tropical creeper known as Indian Pennywort, scientifically known as Centella Asiatica. It has been used in Ayurvedic Medicine for thousands of years and is claimed to be the cure for many problems including the treatment of varicose veins, memory improvement, hair growth, and many skin diseases.
More recent clinical trials have shown that Gotu Kola helps get rid of cellulite by increasing circulation and strengthening the connective tissue through which the surface fat protrudes, resulting in the formation of lumpty, crinkled skin. These are two of the crucial corrections necessary in the elimination of cellulite.
This herb has also been credited with being a dieuretic, having the ability to stimulate the lymph system and thus helps get rid of an accumulation of excess fluids, which is another necessity in treatment for the removal of cellulite.
