Used by Hindu monks and Ayurvedic practitioners for centuries, Holy basil is called “Queen of the Herbs.” Considered sacred and used to ensure good health, spiritualism, and the well-being of one’s family. Ayurvedic medicine considers Holy basil an adaptogenic herb, with the ability to increase the body’s resistance to stress and disease.
Holy basil contains a rich supply of antioxidants. The essential oils in Holy basil contain eugenol, which has anti-inflammatory properties and is being studied for its ability to inhibit cancer cell growth. Research has also been done on Holy basil around its ability to help protect stomach lining from the damages of aspirin. The ancient herb also contains compounds that aid in digestion and nutrient absorption in the digestive tract, making it a good addition to the diets of those with chronic digestive issues.
