Centella asiatica is a herb widely used in Ayurvedic and traditional medicine. It is native to Southeast Asia, such as India, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc. It is also distributed in China. It has been widely used for a long time due to its antibacterial, antiviral, antihypertensive, diuretic, anti-ulcer, anti-inflammatory and other characteristics.
The active ingredient in Centella asiatica can promote the synthesis of collagen and counteract the inflammatory response by regulating the excessive proliferation of keratinocytes, keeping the epidermis at a natural steady state.
Centella asiatica extract can promote cardiovascular health by increasing the density and stability of atherosclerotic echo-cleaving plaques in patients with atherosclerosis and preventing thrombotic or embolic complications.
On the nervous system problem, Centella asiatica extract also has potential application value. Studies have shown that it can effectively preserve memory and promote cognitive function, and can prevent neurodegenerative diseases, especially β-amyloid. Neuroprotective effects are also seen in stroke-induced cognitive impairment caused by Parkinson's disease and neurological damage caused by hyperglycemia in diabetes.
This plant extract is also good for skin health. Studies have shown that Centella asiatica extract can effectively treat stretch marks and body weight fluctuations during pregnancy or after pregnancy. Another preliminary study to evaluate the effectiveness, safety, and tolerability of postpartum application of Centella asiatica cream suggests that topical application of Centella asiatica products can help improve the appearance of stretch marks.
