Holy Basil (Tulsi) Leaf
Holy Basil (Ocimum Sanctum)
Holy basil is native to India where it has been used for centuries as a sacred and medicinal plant. It is a relative of the sweet basil known primarily as a culinary herb.
Holy basil is considered an adaptogen, which means that it increases the body's ability to adapt to environmental and internal stress, promotes normal physiologic function, and is non toxic and safe for everyday use.
Holy basil has also been shown to protect internal organs from the damaging effects of radiation, especially from chemotherapy. It has also been found to be essentially equivalent to aspirin as a pain reliever and anti inflammatory agent.
Holy basil helps reduce allergic respiratory and asthmatic symptoms, enhances memory, speeds recovery from head trauma, has antidepressant qualities, and lowers blood sugar level and cholesterol levels.
