Solaray Ayurvedic Herbs Holy Basil - 60 Easy-to-Swallow Capsules
Holy basil is native to the Indian subcontinent and other parts of tropical Asia. The leaf and seed oil are used therapeutically. Historical or traditional use, Holy basil is a relative of the more familiar species used in cooking. Known to the Ayurvedic medical tradition as tulsi, it has been called the “Queen of Herbs” since the times of ancient civilization in India. Ayurvedic tradition classifies tulsi as an adaptogenic herb, capable of increasing the body’s resistance to stress and disease. Its many specific uses have included coughs, colds, and other respiratory disorders, fevers, headaches, stomach disorders, and heart disease.
The stem and leaves of holy basil contain a variety of constituents that may have biological activity, including saponins, flavonoids, triterpenoids, and tannins. The leaf also contains an essential oil composed of eugenol and other volatile compounds. Several of these constituents have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties according to test tube studies. In animal studies, extracts of holy basil leaf have also lowered blood sugar, reduced some measures of the response to physical stresses, reduced pain sensitivity, protected heart tissue from excessive damage due to a heart attack, improved wound healing, and protected stomach tissue from damage from aspirin. Large amounts of holy basil extract were used in these studies, and few of these effects have been investigated in humans.

Solaray Means Quality
Every Solaray™ product is subjected to rigorous testing and screening protocols. The process may vary by ingredient, but typically includes organoleptic (taste, touch, smell) testing to compare it to previous batches, and lab assays for microbial, identity, purity and potency validation. Only when an ingredient has passed all of the required assays is it released to manufacturing. Solaray adheres to all current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and an independent auditing firm audits Solaray's facilities, laboratory and manufacturing protocols for compliance with the latest regulations.
