What was once a typical raw ingredient used in local dishes, has now become a stellar performer in the natural supplement arena. Pegaga, as it is known here, has been used effectively for centuries to enhance, soothe, strengthen and cleanse.
It’s not often you get everyone from scientists to traditional herbalists enthusiastically agreeing on the benefits of a specific herb; but with Pegaga, this is exactly what is happening. Also known as Gotu Kola and Centella Asiatica, this unassuming plant possesses a plethora of uses and has insignificant side effects. It can be eaten fresh, in capsules or ground into a powder and added to food and drinks.

A product like Pegaga by PurelyB requires a great deal of effort to produce. PurelyB works directly with farmers in northeast Malaysia and southeast Thailand, which are some of the poorest in the region due to lack of demand, inefficient farming methods, adverse weather conditions and being at the bottom of the agricultural value chain. By taking out the middlemen, PurelyB is able to get the best product and contribute directly to improve the livelihoods of these farmers, many of whom are women.
