Organic Holy Basil

Stress & the Modern World

Despite the advances in today’s science and technology, modern life is filled with stress. Mobile devices and constant connectivity have increased the pace of life so rapidly that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by information, while changes in agriculture and manufacturing increasingly expose us to unhealthy chemicals. It’s no wonder that so many people are turning to holistic approaches that promote natural health products and healthy lifestyle choices.

There is mounting research that supports the use of adaptogenic herbs to address physical, chemical, metabolic, and psychological stress. Holy basil (Ocimum sanctum) is one such herb studied for its potential to protect against the toxic effects of mental and environmental stressors.

Herbal Yoga

Holy basil, also called tulsi, is a sacred plant for Hindus and is well documented in Ayurveda. It contains a unique combination of phytochemicals believed to promote resilience and wellbeing, and has been studied in vitro and in clinical trials for potential benefits, like:

  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-stress
  • Cognitive support
  • Cardio protection
  • Liver health
  • Immune support
  • Memory enhancement

Many of holy basil’s attributes are due to its high polyphenol content and antioxidant properties. Holy basil has even been called “herbal yoga” due to its purported ability to impart calm and clarity. Modern science confirms that holy basil has many healthy nutrients, like ursolic acid, rosmarinic acid, and oealonic acid, that can provide a wide range of benefits.
