The Many Benefits of Holy Basil

If you're feeling stressed out, there's an herbal remedy that may be able to help. Holy basil, also known as tulsi, is a sacred plant in Ayurveda, the traditional herbal system of India. Holy basil has more recently been shown to possess powerful adaptogenic properties with the ability to enhance the body's healthy response to normal daily life stress.* In addition, scientific studies have demonstrated that Holy Basil may support healthy carbohydrate metabolism and normal glucose management.* Here are some of the ways holy basil can help reduce stress and improve your overall health.

Reduces Cortisol Levels

Cortisol is often referred to as the "stress hormone" because it's released in response to stress. However, cortisol also plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and inflammation. When cortisol levels are chronically elevated, it can lead to a number of health problems including weight gain, anxiety, and even depression. Fortunately, holy basil has been shown to help reduce cortisol levels.*

Improves Sleep Quality

If you're struggling with insomnia or other sleep disorders, holy basil may be able to help. A study published in Phyto therapy Research found that holy basil helped improve sleep quality in people with insomnia.* The study participants took 500 mg of holy basil extract twice per day for eight weeks. At the end of the study period, the participants reported significant improvements in sleep quality as well as reductions in fatigue and daytime sleepiness.

Reduces Inflammation

Inflammation is a normal immune response that helps protect the body from infection and injury. However, when inflammation becomes chronic, it can lead to a number of health problems including heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Holy basil has been shown to help reduce inflammation.* One study found that holy basil was just as effective as ibuprofen at reducing inflammation.* Another study found that holy basil extract was able to inhibit the production of inflammatory cytokines.*


Holy basil is an incredible herb with numerous health benefits. If you're struggling with stress or other health issues, holy basil may be worth trying.

Review of HOLY BASIL EXTRACT 90 VCAPS - NOW Product N3124
Reviewed by Maverick of sky

Rating: 5/5

Basil is a herb, and it is originally from India. I would not dive into describing the benefits of herbs. However, it is clear that to maintain a healthy immune system, each of us should take some as often as we can. Now the problem is the arrangement of these herbs. Not all of them are readily available. Even if they are in your store's shelf, they are priced at pretty high range. They are perishable and you cannot stock your entire month's supply. The solution is Now Basil Extract. You can get it whenever you want, and can stock for months. It would save you some bucks as well. I recommend this product for those who are looking for a healthy life.
