Pennywort





Pennywort

Pennywort (Gotu Kola, Botanical Name: Centella asiatica)

Price: 20 Baht / 350ml

A couple of years ago (this is Oct 2014) Noi began getting requests to make Pennywort Juice (she pronounces it "wobo" in Thai).

There are a great many health claims for Pennywort in ancient cultures as well as by western alternative health practitioners, some of which are quoted below with links to source. Our position is: "everyone is unique, experiment to find out what works for you".

Noi prepares Pennywort in the same fashion as Bai-Yanang and Khow Tong and sells it both with and without sugar at the request of her customers.




This wonder herb is used to treat venereal diseases, skin impurities, rheumatism, high blood pressure, hepatitis, varicose veins, skin ulcers, minor burns, fatigue and stress. Fresh leaves have been known to be used in treating dysentery, asthma, stomach disorders and bronchitis. Juice extracted from the leaves is highly beneficial in promoting the purification of the blood. It helps improve circulation and the rebuilding of connective tissue, assisting in the prevention of premature ageing. Pennywort can be used for eczema and other skin-related ailments, including skin ulcers. It is also able to lower blood sugar levels.

Pennywort contains a number of minerals and vitamins, among them Vitamin K, calcium, sodium, Vitamin B-Complex, magnesium, zinc and manganese. It is also able to help protect the body from toxins. This herb is also able to greatly benefit the central nervous system, making it effective in the treatment of ADD, senility, epilepsy, strokes and nervous system disorders. Those suffering from leg cramps and phlebitis can benefit from using this herb. It is also effective in reducing fevers.
