Memory - A published study in the Journal of Alzhiemers Dieased was able to show an extract improved memory at the molecular level because it enhanced the pathways that are closely associated towards long-term memory formation.
Therefore, the present findings suggest the potential of Centella asiatica to attenuate the age-related decline in cognitive function and mood disorder in the healthy elderly. However, the precise mechanism(s) underlying these effects still require further investigation.
Reduce Inflammation - Gotu kola can assist with arthritis in mice. The present study aimed to investigate the therapeutic potential and underlying mechanisms of madecassoside on collagen II (CII)-induced arthritis (CIA) in mice. Madecassoside (10, 20 and 40mg/kg), orally administered from the day of the antigen challenge for twenty consecutive days, dose-dependently alleviated the severity of the disease based on the reduced clinical scores, and elevated the body weights of mice.
Kills Cancer Cells - A study found Gotu Kola effective in cell death for many strains of cancer cells, which did include breast cancer cells, mouse skin cells and rat brain cancer cells.
The AE had a promising activity against mouse melanoma (B16F1), human breast cancer (MDA MB-231) and rat glioma (C6) cell lines, with IC50 values of 698.0, 648.0 and 1000.0 μg/mL, respectively. A positive correlation was established between the level of flavonoids, antioxidant a
