Holy Basil has been helping people for hundreds of years but some people may not know the multiple health benefits from this amazing plant.

Native to Southeast Asia, Holy Basil is considered a sacred plant by the Hindus who have been making medicine from the plant’s leaves, stems, and seeds. The Hindu name for Holy Basil is Tulsi which means “the incomparable one” and the plant has been used to treat mercury poisoning, promote longevity, as a mosquito repellent, and to counteract snake and scorpion bites.

Holy Basil supplements are known to provide several health benefits from cleansing the body to treating common cold, influenza, and flu. Additionally, research has shown that supplementation from Holy Basil can help to treat diabetes, asthma, bronchitis, and upset stomach.

Other studies have shown that Holy Basil can help relieve anxiety and stress, both physical and emotional, naturally. Extracts made from the root of Holy Basil have been shown to have mentally stimulating and destressing capabilities as well as promoting relaxation. The exact mechanism of action is yet to be determined although research has shown that this herb decreases the amount of cortisol released during stress without the adverse side-effects of prescription medications. Holy Basil has been traditionally used for stress relief working as adaptogen, a substance that balances and protects the body by improving resistance to any type of physiological or mental stress.
