In India, the Tulsi herb has been widely known for its health-promoting properties — for body, mind, and spirit for over 5,000 years.
Commonly called "sacred" or "holy basil," Tulsi is a principle herb of Ayurveda, India's ancient holistic health system. Ayurveda means "knowledge of life" — with herbs lying at the very heart of Ayurvedic practice.
Ayurvedic knowledge grew out of the wisdom of ancient rishis (sages) and yogis of India, and initially passed by word of mouth.
Apparently, this tradition continued for many generations until the earliest known written texts around 5,000 BC.
The Rigveda became the first documented scientific record of Ayurveda. Rig means "in verses" and veda means "book of infinite knowledge."
Herbs like Tulsi are at the heart of India's holistic health system.
The Rigveda emphasized the importance of herbs for optimal health and well-being.
The ancient rishis ensured the integration of Tulsi into daily life by incorporating it into religious rituals. In this way, people at all levels of Indian society routinely consumed Tulsi for health benefits during worship in their temples and homes.*
Today, Indians worship Tulsi as a sacred plant. It is a part of Indian households, typically grown in earthen pots in the family home or garden.
You already know about many of this herb's amazing health benefits,* but here's one I feel needs additional emphasis...
How Tulsi Can Help You Stay Calm and Relaxed*
Certain herbs have been discovered to induce resistance to stress called: State of Non-specific Increased Resistance (SNIR).*
Agents that improve the capability of an organism to adapt to stressors are called adaptogens. According to Dr. Narendra Singh, an adaptogen must fulfill three requirements.
Be innocuous in nature
Promote normal physiological functions of your body
Induce a SNIR in the human organism, so the body copes better with occasional stress
And of all the herbs Dr. Singh researched, Tulsi ended up being one of the best adaptogens.*
So what does this mean to you?
It simply means Tulsi can help support your system against stress... helping you to relax and stay calm in today's frantic world.*
And this is only one of the many Tulsi benefits you can take advantage of with Organic Tulsi Tea Mix.
