I like the benefits that I read about the supplement Gotu Kola. The literature seems to indicate possible side effects of sleepiness, high cholesterol, and high blood sugar. Would it be possible to take this at bedtime and still get benefits realized when I am awake without daytime sleepiness? I take supplements of garlic, fish oil, flaxseed oil, krill oil, and digestive enzymes. Would these supplements counteract the tendency toward high cholesterol, and high blood sugar? I know my blood pressure really climbs on St. John's Wort, Ginkoba Biloba, and Phosphatidylserine. I was taking the Phosphatidylserine and Ginkoba Biloba together. I want to enjoy the anti-depressant and intelligence boosting properties without the side-effects.
Thank you very much for any help.
