Holy basil, commonly known in the Hindi language as tulsi, is quite possibly the most revered medicinal herb on the planet. Medicinal preparations are made from the leaves, stems, and seeds of the plant.
In Western medicine holy basil is perhaps most valued as an adaptogen (a substance that helps the body adapt to stress). The plant has been used to combat the negative effects of stress in the body, maintain stable blood sugar levels, and promote longevity.
