I’ve been using Gotu Kola for a few months now and can definitely understand why people aren’t just raving away about it. It’s effects are very subtle, yet I consider it essential. By itself, it seems to be a less potent version of both Bacopa and Pearl as it’s effects on memory and skin are similar, just not as powerful on its own. However, when taken with those two herbs, I’ve noticed a dramatic increase in the effects of the other two herbs (I feel strange calling a pearl an herb). The synergistic effect is simply amazing! While I’ve only been taking it for two months or so, I consider it an essential part of my daily diet now. I know this one doesn’t really work it’s full magic in such a short time, but from what I’ve seen so far, I have no doubt it will be life-changing. Thanks again for bringing such a wonderful product to market. You have a customer for life here. Jim
