Herb of the Week: Holy Basil

Everyone is always looking for the magic pill. Wouldn’t be nice to take something and feel a lot better right away? We know there isn’t such a thing, but we can find some pills that may help you “feel better”.

Holy Basil is also known as Tulsi (means “the incomparable one”) and has been helping people feel better for many years. The herb has been called the “Queen of Herbs” since the ancient civilization. Originally from India, this powerful herb can increase the body’s resistance to stress and minimize the negative effects of stress on the body.

Many people believe Holy Basil can support carbohydrate metabolism, resulting in healthy blood glucose levels. Several products for blood sugar support add this herb in their formulas.

Studies have also showed the ability of Holy Basil to promote body relaxation. People have been able to sleep better, reducing stress levels and elevating spirit when taking the herb on a regular basis.

Holy Basil is safe to use and it can be taken by kids, adults and elderly people, with no sides effects. It’s a great product for children, calming them down and supporting better nights of sleep.

If you are not getting results from more traditional products, such as St. John’s Wort, Gaba, Kava Kava and L-theanine, Holy Basil could be the “magic pill” for you.
