When I write these articles, one of the biggest questions that I get asked typically is how to tighten the loose skin that occurs when you are losing the weight and dropping so much body fat. Many think that surgery must be the only way out to pull back the skin and help remove with the stretch marks. However, there is more to the story for improving overall skin health and reducing the saggy skin. The ancient method of using this vital herb has been successful for many years. The weight-loss community has widely known about this method for years but never shared its overall potential of how it actually works to improve overall skin health. In Chinese medicine this herb is known as Gotu Kola or centella asiatica. It has been used for centuries as an elixir for life to increase skin health and improve overall lifespan.
As mentioned on my radio program, Gotu Kola has been used for many conditions from reducing bacterial growth to female reproductive disorders to wound healing. The unique component with Gotu kola is the properties to help regenerate skin and enhance collagen production.
Scientists are now studying how Gotu Kola helps with psoriasis, helps with scars, and even can help with stretch marks. Many wonder how it actually works and that is what science is actually finding out now.
Now listen, the typical dosage varies, but many research articles mention taking it for an extended period of time. For example 2 capsules, 3 times per day for six months is average. It takes that long to get the overall nutrient saturation in the cells to create an overall therapeutic effect.
Gotu Kola is normally taken with a food and beverage and has been shown to be a large supporter of improving brain health including boosting memory and cognition. Some even report alleviating many symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. The Gotu Kola is becoming a natural superstar. So if you are starting a new weight loss plan you may consider adding Centella to your daily dietary routine to help offset and strengthen the skin as you drop the bodyfat and lose the weight.
