Holy Basil Relieves Stress
Natural treatments for targeting stress include Holy Basil Ocimum sanctum, an Indian medicinal plant – known as Tulsi – traditionally used for the treatment of various stress-related conditions.
Three Holy Basil compounds; Ocimarin, Ocimumoside A and Ocimumoside B, were studied by Ahmad A, et al, on their role in modulating chronic stress-induced central changes.
This is the first report which identified the anti-stress activity of novel Holy Basil components (Ocimumoside A and B) at the level of central monoamines and antioxidant properties, implicating their therapeutic importance in the prevention of stress-related disorders.
Holy Basil is a key ingredient in The Wise Herb Company’s health drinks: CALM&RELAX and YOUNG&FUN.
