Planetary Herbals - Holy Basil Extract 450 mg. - 60 Capsules

Planetary Herbals Holy Basil Extract 450 mg promotes centered calmness for natural stress reduction and COX-2 inhibition. Holy Basil (known as tulsi in Ayurveda) is one of the primary botanicals used in India for reducing the negative effects of stress by lowering cortisol production in the adrenals. In vitro research shows the ursolic acid in holy basil inhibits COX-2, an inflammatory enzyme. As a powerful adaptogen, it helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels when used as part of your diet, as well as promote focused clarity.

Skyrocketing stress is one of the nation's most pervasive public health problems. Daily stress can cause imbalances in inflammatory COX-2 production and cortisol levels, which can influence blood sugar changes. To regain balance, Planetary Herbals offers Holy Basil, a legendary Ayurvedic herb that is making news for its ability to inhibit the inflammatory COX-2 enzyme, balance cortisol levels and normalize blood sugar.

Holy Basil is rich in beneficial compounds, such as rosmarinic acid, eugenol, and many others which work together to reduce stress. This herb also typically contains ursolic acid, which has been shown to inhibit COX-2 in in vitro research. As a result, Holy Basil has a positive effect on mental well-being, and can provide minor pain relief from everyday activities. Planetary Herbals brings you this special herb, used daily in India by millions, in a high potency, 450 mg capsule.

Stress, Blood Sugar and Nervous System Protection
For over 5 millenia, Tulsi (Holy Basil) has been used to improve digestion and restore imbalances of the body and mind. Now research has documented that Holy Basil may do this by decreasing levels of cortisol, a hormone produced and secreted by the adrenal glands. Nicknamed the "stress hormone," cortisol production increases in response to chronic stress. Cortisol triggers the body to make glucose from amino acids, which causes blood sugar to rise. Through normalizing cortisol levels in times of stress, holy basil may prevent not only the mood changes associated with stress, but also prevent the increases in blood sugar that researchers say can contribute to numerous health imbalances affecting more than half of all Americans. Holy basil has also been found to normalize neurotransmitter levels in the brain. Researchers found in animal studies that holy basil counteracted stress-induced changes in neurotransmitters and enzymes. Stress leads to a positive increase in brain serotonin levels, increases in dopamine levels and increases in SDH (succinate dehyfrogenase) levels, while Holy Basil may help people maintain normal levels of these brain chemicals in times of stress. Another study found that animals that received the extract showed significant normalization of epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, MAO, and SDH. Epinephrine and norepinephrine are used in coping with stress. The researchers suggest that when dopamine levels rise, these two neurotransmitters may be replenished since dopamine is a precursor for their synthesis. This may be the mechanism by which holy basil assists with stress adaptation.

A Powerful Adaptogen
Holy Basil is classified as a premier "adaptogen," an herb that can normalize body processes and restore overall health by maintaining body systems. Adaptogens support the systemic response to stress and give stamina. Holy Basil was selected for Planetary Herbals by renowned herbalist Michael Tierra, L.Ac., O.M.D., an authority on the world's herbal traditions, who uses this herb daily in his clinical practice. This means you can be assured of obtaining the benefits you are seeking from an herbal product.
