The Indian pennywort, or Gotu Kola, is a medicinal herb from the Apiaceae, aromatic flowering family. Found in the wetlands of Asia, Gotu Kola has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine and food to promote health and wellbeing. Grown in tropical climates, it is no wonder Gotu Kola is indigenous to India and Southeast Asia. This aquatic plant is green and long-stalked with a smooth texture. It has white or red flowering and rounded umbels.
