During this episode, Poliquin mentioned a supplement called Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) and how it can restore the appearance of loose skin.
Poliquin says that ingesting this plant in the form of a capsule three times daily (at two tablets a time) should give you visible results within 6-months.
Now, I’m a bit skeptical about this and keen to know more about Gotu Kola and how it may benefit loose skin conditions.
In previous articles, I’ve written about my weight loss experiences and how I overcame the appearance of loose skin by applying the following principles:
- Build lean body mass
- Introduce more natural foods in your diet
- Reach a lower body fat percentage
- Use various supplements
I’ve also emphasised that loose skin is often mistaken for stubborn body fat and that in most cases, people need to think about dropping excess weight rather than going under the knife.
But if Gotu Kola truly is an aid for loose skin and not just another miracle product scam waiting to be capitalised on, I will certainly be adding updates to The Loose Skin Solution ebook.
Poliquin say’s Gotu Kola will get rid of unnecessary scar tissue, but you will see zero progress for six months.
He also mentions that overnight there seems to be a saturation point where the body get’s the message to cell signalling (listen to the full podcast here)
Poliquin used this the Gotu Kola approach with one of his clients who had loose skin after losing over 200 pounds. Within a year of taking Gotu Kola, his client was said to have been very satisfied.
I can’t imagine Poliquin talking bullshit since he is a respectable figure in the field of strength training, nutrition, and all things related.
But if people weren’t attracted to bullshit we wouldn’t have half the many health figures we have today making money. But we do. So again. I’m a bit skeptical.
I guess the only way to find if Gotu Kola works is to try it for myself. But since I’ve achieved satisfying results with my body after being a 310-pound fat boy I’m probably not the ideal candidate to be testing the supplement.
Despite this, however, I will continue my research and hopefully find people with results after using this method.
Using Gotu Kola For Loose Skin
I’m going to follow what Poliquin recommends by ingesting 6 capsules a day for the next 24-weeks.
While I’m not body perfect, I do expect to see some changes in appearance (assuming it works). But should this be another supplement scam, my methods featured in The Loose Skin Solution will stay forever strong and realistic.
If anyone cares to join me on the quest to supplement Gotu Kola, leave a comment below. I will consider using your experience for a future article.
Also, if you’d like to know where I am purchasing Gotu Kola, I am currently using a brand via Amazon.
