Gotu Kola
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Yoko
Posted on: November 26, 2000

Do you know this plant is called "arthritis plant" in Australia and my friend said it is very effective?

Well, I gave fresh herb to my friend from another friend’s greenhouse and it was very effective to her knee pain.

I am looking forward to grow it in the spring.

Gotu kola is known to have a regenerative effect on connective tissue. Helping to repair ligaments, joints, etc. may be how the herb helps arthritis sufferers.
