Indians have long worshipped Tulsi as a sacred plant. In fact, for thousands of years, Tulsi had been grown for spiritual reasons in the gardens of most Indian homes. Its branches, leaves and fragrance are used by Indians in for purification purposes and to heighten spiritual awareness. Thus, Tulsi is noted for these spiritual attributes, is commonly called “holy basil.”
Also known by the names, “the Queen of Herbs,” “the Incomparable One” and “the Mother Medicine of Nature – Tulsi is also a powerful medicine. Though many herbs are valued highly in India, the stimulating powers of Tulsi were recognized by the ancient healers and sages, giving it a unique status as one of the most sacred herbs in India along with Soma and the Lotus.
Tulsi Increases Your Stress Resilience
The best part of Tulsi is that it is one of the most effective adaptogens (an agent that helps the body adapt more efficiently to stress) ever known. Tulsi reduces the intensity and negative impact of stress caused by:
- Mental tension
- Emotional difficulties
- Poor lifestyle habits
Naturally, Tulsi’s protective actions against stress help prevent the onset of illnesses that come with living at a faster, frenzied pace. Tea made from Tulsi leaves can be taken when healthy to:
- Support overall wellbeing
- Enhance stamina
- Stimulate energy
Western science has already confirmed that stress is the leading cause of degenerative disease, something Eastern medicine has understood for thousands of years. In fact, the American Institute of Stress reports that 75% – 95% of visits to healthcare professionals are somehow related to the adverse effects of stress. And 50% of adults in the U.S. say they experience high stress on a daily basis. Fortifying yourself against the aftermath of stress is the key to living a healthy life. As they say, an ounce of prevention with Tulsi tea is worth more than a pound of cure.
Anti-Aging Effects of Tulsi
Do you think “youth” merely means smooth skin and a wrinkle free face (as most beauty products promise)? You may certainly slow down the superficial effects of time if you are a regular at beauty spas and a consumer of expensive anti-aging beauty products. But no beauty product or treatment can make you “young” in the real sense, if your nutritional supplements are all wrong.
As you age:
- Your heart becomes less efficient and less able to pump large amounts of blood.
- Intestines slow down, secretions diminish a bit leading to some constipation problems.
- Kidneys lose some efficiency in waste removal.
- Brains lose neurons and memory becomes less sharp.
It is important for you to understand that there is such a thing as health span – which is the length of time you can spend living a healthy life. And in your quest for a youthful life, your health span is actually more important than your life span. If you think about it, you certainly don’t want to spend your life plagued with various ills as you age.
Tulsi links body, mind and spirit as you age (and indeed you actually begin aging soon after you are born) and supports your body in many ways:
- Supports the immune system, making it a natural immune-modulator.*

- Neutralizes dangerous biochemicals that contribute to cancer, degenerative diseases and premature aging.*
- Reduces cell and tissue damage from sun rays, radiation therapy and other radiation sources.*

It is also used by Indians to help them cope with excessive mucus, phlegm, sluggishness, excess weight and lack of energy.*
Powerful Compounds in Tulsi Protect Your Body from Viruses, Stress and Disease
Tulsi has a highly complex, unique chemistry. And it contains different beneficial compounds called phyto-chemicals (naturally-occurring compounds that plants produce to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses and fungi) which protect your cells against free radical damage.
