Terranova Holy Basil supplement provides 400mg of fresh, freeze-dried organic Holy Basil, a herb called Tulsi in ayurvedic medicine, that has a broad range of benefits and is commonly used in the traditional Indian medicine system. Holy Basil's benefits are widespread and this herb is considered a tonic for the body, mind, and spirit. 1
The use of Holy Basil (Ocimum Sanctum) dates back to 1500 BC, when it was considered a sacred herb, and is highly regarded in Ayurvedic Medicine to this day. Don't confuse Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) with basil (Ocimum basilicum), which is very commonly used in cooking.
Holy Basil is also known as "the incomparable one," referring to its wide variety of benefits that go beyond its adaptogenic properties. Holy Basil is also rich in vitamins C and A and minerals like calcium, zinc, and iron, as well as chlorophyll and many other phytonutrients.2
Modern research on this adaptogenic Herb confirms Tulsi’s ability to help your body adapt to stress, promote mental balance, and improve sleep quality. 3
