thanks for the explanation. I will look into the making of a tincture, though using it with DMSO may also help as that also goes directly into the bloodstream.
I bought it primarly to see if it can cure spider veins (I might also have internal hemmorhoids), but I also have the symptoms of diabetes, so it would be good for that also.
I'm not sure whether gotu kola is also an adaptogen when it comes to blood sugar, as I have read it may raise your blood Sugar (from a study done on mice). I nowhere read it can lower your blood sugar, but since it is an adaptogen, I suppose it would if it is too high?
