◉ It may help boost cognitive function- In 2016, a small study looked at how well gotu kola extract and folic acid improved brain function after a stroke. This small study looked at the effects on three groups of people: those who took 1,000 milligrams (mg) of gotu kola per day, those who took 750 mg per day, and those who took 3 mg per day of folic acid.
Even though both gotu kola and folic acid helped improve overall cognitive function, gotu kola was better at improving memory.
