Tulsi - It's "Holy" Nickname Truly Reflects This Amazing Herb!

As Pomegranate Tulsi is one of our featured teas this month, we find it our duty to share the amazing benefits of Tulsi, it may change your life!

Tulsi is an herb that originates from India, where it has been used since ancient times by wise people who then documented their research into our ancient texts.  

Since Tulsi has been around for a while, there is a wealth of information detailing the many, many trials where Tulsi has shown positive results. Before using Tulsi do your research - Tulsi may not be for everyone; having a chat with your health care provider is a great place to start and WebMD has some information as well.

 

Tulsi: Elixir of Life

Tulsi is of the lamiaceae family, relating it to basil. Tulsi's nickname is "Holy Basil", is translated from sanskrit as "the incomparable one" and in Ayurveda it is referenced as a kind of "elixir of life". 

Tulsi can be applied topically and ingested. It is caffeine free and boosts your body naturally when taken internally. Tulsi has adaptogen properties, which helps to balance the body's processes and reduce stress. It aids with digestion and enhances the absorption of herbs and foods. 

Tulsi is applied in Ayurveda for a variety of ailments, including:

  • common colds
  • headaches
  • stomach disorders
  • inflammation
  • heart disease
  • malaria
  • various forms of poisoning

Tulsi has shown to help lower blood sugar and increase physical endurance, boosts both dopamine and serotonin, and has been tested for therapeutic applications including anti-diabetic, cardiac activity, wound healing activity, radio protective effect, genotoxicity, antioxidant, hypolipidemic, antimicrobial, effect on gene transcription, gastroprotective, immunomodulatory effect, sexually transmitted disease, effect on the central nervous system (CNS), antinocicptive (analgesic), anti-fertility, anthelmintic activity, anti-inflammatory, anticancer and thyroid activity.

With all of the benefits that Tulsi can provide, verifying that Tulsi is right for you is an important step. More about Tulsi can be found at The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health
