Holy Basil is reputed to be a herb that helps the mind cope with a wide range of chemical, physical, infectious and emotional stresses, and help restore physiological and psychological function.
This plant is arguably the most revered herb in Ayurveda, the world’s oldest medical system stemming from India.
Holy Basil (or Tulsi) has a broad-spectrum, normalising action that helps maintain homeostasis in the body. It’s also known as an adaptogen – a herb that helps the body adapt to various kinds of stress. While adaptogens are not widely used in modern medicine, Western science has proven that it possesses many pharmacological actions that fulfill this purpose.
