Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi, is known for its broad healing powers and has been used for thousands of years. In ayurvedic medicine, Holy basil is regarded as an herb that nourished the whole person, promoting perfect health and long life. In more recent years, its use has grown significantly due to its adaptogenic properties. Studies have indicated that it aids the body in regulating cortisol levels and keeping hormone levels balanced, helping it adapt to stress (thus its adaptogenic properties).
A few of the health perks of Holy Basil are:
1. Nourishes your adrenal glands, helping you fight adrenal fatigue
2. Fights acne when topically applied to the skin with a carrier oil such as coconut oil.
3. Helps regulate blood sugar
4. Fights stress and anxiety
Making Tulsi a part of your daily health routine, either by adding to your cooking, taking as a tea or a supplement, will help your entire body achieve better overall health.
You can find Holy Basil @ William's on many different forms, from teas and capsules to tinctures and dried herb.
