Basil (Holy Basil)

Botanical name: (Ocimum tenuiflorum)

Also Known As: Tulsi basil, holy basil, or Thai holy basil

Basil, typically used in the area of culinary arts, helps relieve flatulence and fullness. Traditionally, this sacred herb native to the Indian subcontinent was used to treat colds and flus, gas, nausea, pain and arthritis. It has also been shown to have antioxidant and anti—inflammatory properties, and as such may be able to protect the body from damage.

However, recently many researchers are focusing on holy basil as a cholesterol and diabetes treatment, as the herb has shown some promise in treating both of these conditions. Studies have illustrated that the holy basil plant has cholesterol lowering properties, as well as the ability to reduce triglyceride levels. Holy basil has similar effects to diabetes medications and may mimic the effects of insulin in the body.
