Green Tea is made of steamed leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea's health benefits have been studied extensively over the last few decades. It's a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals and may prevent some of their damage. Researchers are also investigating green tea's possible effect on conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
Pomegranates, one of the most beautifully complex fruits on earth, have been cultivated for millennia in the Middle East and India; this "superfruit" has recently become popular in the U.S. Pomegranates are rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C.
And the "secret" ingredient in this virtuosic tea is Tulsi. Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) is a powerful healing herb that has been revered for over 5000 years in India for its ability to relieve stress and boost the body's natural immune system. Organic India is the first company to bring Tulsi to the West as an organic tea. They work with thousands of farmers in India to cultivate the herb using environmentally sustainable methods, restoring vitality to the earth and dignity to its people.
The Tulsi Story: India's "Queen of Herbs"
For more than 5000 years Tulsi (also known as Holy Basil) has been considered India's "Queen of Herbs" and has been revered as one of the most sacred herbs in India, infused with healing power. Hindus view Tulsi (also spelled Tulasi or Thulasi) as a goddess in the form of a plant bestowed with great spiritual and healing powers. According to legend, no amount of gold could outweigh Krishna's power, but a single Tulsi leaf placed on the pan in loving devotion tilted that scale. In India today, Tulsi is still traditionally grown in an earthenware pot in every family home or garden, and the leaves are used to make a delicious and refreshing tea that possesses wonderful health benefits.
As Tulsi traveled west along the early trade routes from the Orient to Europe, it became known to the Christians as "sacred" or "holy" basil as is reflected in its Latin botanical name, Ocimum sanctum. They hailed Tulsi as "The King of Herbs' instead of as a queen, and Holy Basil became routinely included in legends, offerings and worship rituals and was looked on by many as a gift of Christ.
Modern research has classified Tulsi as an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens have been shown to support the body's natural immune system while relieving the body's negative reaction to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicines for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical and emotional stressors, support normal functions, and restore balance.
Organic India's Tulsi - Holy Basil Formula and certified organic Tulsi Teas include three varieties of Tulsi leaves: Rama, Vana, and Krishna. Each variety has a slightly different look, taste and smell and when combined, create a perfectly balanced herbal infusion with an array of health benefits including:
- Support for the immune system
- Increased stamina and endurance
- Relief and protection from everyday stress
- Abundant antioxidants.
