Centella asiatica or Hydrocotyl asciatica, commonly known as centella, Asiatic pennywort or Indian pennywort or Gotu kola, is a herbaceous, frost-tender perennial plant in the flowering plant family Apiaceae, subfamily Mackinlayoideae.
Centella grows in tropical swampy areas and is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and wetland regions of the Southeastern US. Because the plant is aquatic, it is especially sensitive to biological and chemical pollutants in the water, which may be absorbed into the plant. It can be cultivated in drier soils as long as they are watered regularly enough (such as in a home garden arrangement). It is used as a culinary vegetable and as medicinal herb.
The leaves of the plant contain glucoside, asiaticoside and acetic acid. The leaves and root contain acetic acid. The dried leaf contains centoic acid. The entire plant is rich in Vitamin B and C and carotenoids. It is mentioned in all the ancient scriptures of Ayurveda.
