What is Holy Basil? (Ocimum sanctum)
Holy Basil, also known as Tulsi, is one of the most highly regarded plants in Ayurvedic medicine, the traditional healing system of India. It has been used for thousands of years to treat an array of conditions including inflammation, digestive complaints, asthma, arthritis, and skin conditions. In the West, it is most well known for its ability to counteract stress, calm the mind, and lift the spirit.
Holy Basil is an adaptogen that promotes a healthy stress response. Research shows that Holy Basil can counteract stress-induced changes in hormones and neurotransmitters including cortisol, adrenaline, and dopamine. Holy Basil is beneficial for individuals with stress-related conditions such as anxiety, irritability, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive disorders, adrenal fatigue, insomnia, and immune-deficiency. Holy Basil encourages emotional wellbeing by strengthening the nervous system and improving neurotransmitter production and function.
Holy Basil has also been found in numerous studies to have blood sugar-modulating effects. One study involving patients with type 2 diabetes reported a significant decrease in patients’ fasting blood glucose levels when treated with Holy Basil compared to treatment with placebo. Total serum cholesterol levels were also reduced. Another study found that Holy Basil stimulates insulin secretion from the pancreas, which contributes to its antidiabetic action. In addition, Holy Basil decreases the stress hormone cortisol, which rises when one is exposed to chronic stress. Elevated cortisol levels trigger the body to produce more glucose, causing an unhealthy increase in blood glucose levels. This can also result in weight gain. Holy Basil may be helpful for those with type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, or dramatic blood sugar swings.
Holy Basil contains numerous polyphenols (antioxidants) that fight free radicals and protect cells from oxidative damage. These compounds also fight inflammation and inhibit production of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzymes. A study published in Phytomedicine measured the activity of Holy Basil’s phenolic compounds and found the COX-2 inhibitory activity of these compounds to be comparable to ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin. Holy Basil is therefore indicated for relieving inflammation and pain caused by arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, sports injury, and physical overuse.
