  • Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum) really is a sacred plant in Indian folk medicine. It's Sanskrit name Tulsi means "the incomparable one." It is often grown in temple gardens or placed in the home near the front entrance. With its fragrant aroma‚ it's part of Ayurveda's Rasayana "tonic" category of herbs‚ supporting good health and normal function of the whole body.

    Faculty of Science researchers at Annamalai University‚ Tamil Nadu‚ India found that Holy Basil exhibits antioxidant activity and supports the body's natural response to oxidative stress. They also found it to be supportive of the body's normal lipid and protein oxidation levels‚ and normal antioxidant defense reactions. J Med Food. 2007 Sep;10(3):495-502.

    Scientists at the Central Drug Research Institute‚ Lucknow‚ India found that constituents in Holy Basil have normal levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. Further‚ they found constituents of the herb to be supportive of normal blood sugar levels and the body's response to stress. J Nat Prod. 2007 Sep;70(9):1410-6.

    In Ayurvedic tradition‚ Holy Basil is also used to support normal respiratory function and is considered to be an "elixir of life‚" promoting good health and longevity. Puri‚ Harbans Singh (2002). Rasayana: Ayurvedic Herbs for Longevity and Rejuvenation. CRC Press. pp. 272-280.

    It seems to calm me

    I tried Holy Basil by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, because of the good reviews, and it was more economical, this one is in powder capsule form, and the other brand I was using was in a gel capsule form. I don't know if that made a difference or not. I like it, but I was using another brand before this one, and it really helped with my cortisol levels. This one doesn't seem as strong, and it didn't help deflate my tummy like the other brand did, therefore, I am thinking, it didn't lower my cortisol levels as well.

    Great supplement!

    Holy Basil by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare works as well as the New Chapter brand I was taking. It really lowers the cortisol levels in my body, I can tell, because my tummy has gone down quite a bit. I am menopausal, and I couldn't lose weight, because of the high cortisol levels in my body. Holy Basil has greatly helped me reduce my stress levels, and now I am able to lose weight, I feel very calm when I take this twice a day.


    Pros

      Great adaption herb, really helps with lowering cortisol levels, from too much stress.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
