Holy Basil, Also known as Tulsi, an adaptogenic Ayurvedic herb. The word Tulsi translates to “balance”.
In Western medicine holy basil is perhaps most valued as an adaptogen (a substance that helps the body adapt to stress). The plant has been used to combat the negative effects of stress in the body, maintain stable blood sugar levels, and promote longevity.
Holy basil is an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens are substances found in plants that help boost the body’s resilience in dealing with stressors. Because the effects of stress on the body play such a huge role in the aging process, adaptogens are also considered to have anti-aging properties.
They may perform many different functions including:
- Balancing hormones such as cortisol (the stress hormone)
- Improving brain function
- Boosting the immune system
- Lowering inflammation
- Improving energy levels
- Improving organ and bodily system (such as GI) function
Interestingly, the Hindus worship holy basil; the plant is considered the “Mother Medicine of Nature.” It’s been revered since ancient times as an herb that can promote a healthy body, mind, and spirit. The sacred plant is often planted around Hindu shrines. The name tulsi means “the incomparable one.”
