Pegaga / Gotu Kola
February 13, 2010
Its botanical name is Centella Asiatica. In my country, it is commonly taken as salad / ulam.
Many believed that one of the benefits for taking this herb is awet muda, which means it can assist us in maintaining a youthful feature. I have been taking this herb since a decade ago. Actually, I was forced to take it. I knew it could be good for me but I really disliked the bitter taste back then.
Most people commented that I look much younger than my true age. Hmmm, I wonder if the herb has anything to do with that. If you wish to slow down the aging process, why not try this herb or other herbs which are rich in anti-oxidants? Taken in a moderate amount, herbs are pretty much harmless.
