When someone says they’ve found the holy grail of herbs, I wouldn’t believe it until now.
Holy basil is an herb that is commonly used in Ayurvedic holistic medicine. It is also known as tulsi, its Sanskrit name, which means “beyond compare.”
Holy basil isn’t your average supermarket basil. This sacred Hindu herb is slightly more peppery in flavor than Italian basil, not to mention there is a mass of holy basil benefits that standard basil just doesn’t have.
One of the most impressive attributes this wonder herb holds is its strength in stress relief and balancing adrenal functions.
Holy basil’s ability to reduce stress comes from its adaptogens.
They’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs. An adaptogen is natural substance that helps your body adjust to stress and promotes mental balance.
Vitamin-C and other antioxidants in Holy Basil also minimize stress! They soothe the nerves, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation and thus reduce stress.
Whether it’s travel, work, or just little every day elements that have you feeling out of sorts, bring your body back in balance and grab some Holy Basil.
