Holy Basil – A Superfood Worthy of Worship

In this age of cancer awareness, obesity-linked diseases, and greater levels of stress than ever before, it’s nice to know you can do something to help mitigate the dangers of modern living. No, not move to a remote hermitage — although that’s tempting. It turns out, though, that holy basil may just be the newest tool in your self-care kit. If you’re looking for less stress (and less of everything that comes with it), this Ayurvedic herb is for you.

According to the National Centre For Biotechnology Information, Holy basil (Tulsi) provides a huge range of stress-busting benefits. According to ancient lore and budding research, it:
— Reduces psychological stress
— Nourishes the mind in a manner similar to yoga
— Offers antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties
— Fights metabolic syndrome, which is the precursor to diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and, according to some, cancer
— Detoxifies your body
— Promotes weight loss
— Enhances your overall well-being
