More commonly known as the Gotu Kola plant, Mandukaparni is a popular herb in Ayurvedic tradition. Manduka translates to frog, and Parni translates to leaves and hence, the name Mandukaparni for its webbed feet like leaves. The shape of the leaves is also similar to the shape of our brain, which is what this herb is great for. It holds various nutrients and properties that stimulate as well as soothe the different parts of our brain for its optimal functioning.
