Also known as Holy Basil, Tulsi is an ayurvedic herb which has historically been used to treat a wide variety of ailments through its adaptogenic properties. This incredibly versatile plant has been shown to shield the body from various different forms of stress. Tulsi leaf extract may protect against physical stress from prolonged physical exertion, low blood supply, and exposure to cold and excessive noise, and fight chemical stress (eg, from industrial pollutants and heavy metals). The herb aids in the normalization of blood glucose, blood pressure, and lipid levels, thereby warding off metabolic stress. Psychologically, this herb extract supports memory and cognitive function via its anxiolytic and antidepressant properties. It is sometimes used as an antimicrobial agent.*
