Revered as sacred, the leaves, stem and seeds of the Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi is a plant that has been used by Hindus, in everyday life for millions of year as an “adaptogen” alluding to its wide scope of medicinal properties and safe for daily consumption. Known as “The Elixir of Life” to promote longevity, many thought of it to contain many spiritual and medical healing properties.
Today Holy Basil is widely used to treat stress and blood sugar levels. Holy Basil does this by lowering levels of the hormone, Cortisol or “the stress hormone”, which is produced by our adrenal glands. The production of cortisol triggers our body to increase its response to stress. Cortisol also causes our body’s blood sugar levels to rise, by turning amino acids into glucose.
Holy Basil, or Tulsi is overall one of the pillars of the Ayurvedic System, promoting immune system function and modulation, high in anti-oxidants, and used to treat a wide variety of conditions safely and effectively.
