Beauty secret: anti-aging memory enhancing tea


I first heard of Gotu Kola about 20 years ago, when a family friend was nursing her husband back to health from a stroke. She used a plant based diet with medicinal herbs and he made quite the recovery.

Since then, I’ve always believed in the power of this herb.

I found some Gotu Kola tea at my local health food store, and decided to start drinking it again.

I own teacups that make it easy for loose leaf tea to brew.

Honestly, it smells like a barn with horses and hay. I drink it after steeping for 3 to 5 minutes. The taste is mild and pleasant.

Have you tried Gotu Kola? They say that elephants eat it because they have such great memories. Would you ever try it?
